I'm so happy

I gotta brag...

I was shooting senior pictures for a young lady a few days ago, her mother tagging along. We'd gone through several locations and several outfit changes before I thought to show her a quick peek of one of the photos. "Hey, just so you know, this is what I'm doing," I said, showing her the back of my camera. She peeked at the photo I'd just taken, then...

"Mama!" the girl yelled, "He's making me BEAUTIFUL!"*

What better compliment can a photographer get?


*I wanted to say, "No, God made you beautiful. I'm just making sure everyone else sees," but I didn't.

sometimes art is easy...beauty just leaps into the frame or music tumbles through clumsy fingers

...other times, it's very very hard...

Oh man, that is so wonderful. I wonder if she knew what it meant to you?

No, what you really should have said is "yea, and you have no idea how hard that is, I need more money for this gig!"

Just kidding... I take the senior pictures for my kids, and it's just too easy when they're beautiful to start with (me? predjudiced? NO!)

I take a lot of pictures of high school girls, too, but when they find out, they rarely compliment me.

hahahaha Pistols!

You should have said that last part too. She should know that she's always beautiful - with or without your talents.
