I took my daughter Courtney to the airport this morning! Many of you know her because she has helped me with my photography business in many areas since she was just 14. Now she is 20 and is headed to China for 6 months to study international business and Chinese. It is super cool how all of the details have worked out for her and this trip. She won scholarship money that has paid for her entire trip, met wonderful chinese people who are taking her under their wing and giving her a place to live and places to visit. Today another one of those “God coincidences” I call them happened. She was just about to go through the check in and a guy sitting a little ways away heard us mention that she was traveling to China. He is a 24 yr. old Harvard Grad who will be going to law school to study international law. in the mean time he is traveling to China to stay with his brother who lives in Beijing with his wife and baby. He and Courtney will travel all the way there on the same flights and get this…. they will both return in 6 months on Aug. 2nd at the same time on the same flights! They are both staying in beijin.
Maril’s mom Malia and I have been friends since our tri – delta college days at K-state. Malia who is also a good photographer helps me out at the studio from time to time and has helped me out at a couple weddings. SO… it was really fun to photograph Maril who as you can see is very beautiful! We went to a small old town and convent that is close to the studio for part of her senior session. It is always fun for me to go to different locations to photograph. Maril was great! Here are a few of her images.
I had a great time in Mystic, Connecticut where I recently attended the Mystic 5 photography workshop. A big thank you to Photo One Software and P1 Wired for having me and for your wonderful hospitality!
Lynsey’s Senior session was really special. She lives right next to her grandparents out in the country. Her grandparents planted the sunflower patch especially for her senior picture session. The corn field and the pond is on their farm as well. I have fun playing with different effects on some images…. The truck images are examples of how the same image can look so different.
