So, as of right now my mom is no longer able to recognize who any of us are anymore. Her heartrate is steady in the 30′s, blood pressure is constantly rising, and she has endured several seizures recently. I know that many of you would question why I would photograph these things, and to be honest, it’s because having the camera in my hand and capturing the moments helps me go through this. The thought that I can never make a phone call just to talk to my mom about my day is earthshattering and knowing that my brother will have buried both of his parents before he turns 20 simply hurts. I had one bit of comfort before I made the 3 hour drive back home last night. My mom was talking to herself, and when we asked who she was talking to she told us that she was talking to my dad, or as she said “Sidney”. I want to thank everyone for the continued support and prayers, and especially Eddie Marroquin for going so far out of his way for me last night. I cannot say thank you enough.
Anna & Emily are my two senior models at Vandebilt High. I have blogged their prior sessions and we had planned to do a joint session. However, the weather in Louisiana has not been so cooperative lately. We shot on a rather muggy overcast day and came out with some amazing images that I’m very excited to share. Enjoy.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of hanging out with a group of amazing photographers for a shoot out in Baton Rouge. We had several options for models and I ended up working with Kristen, Amy, & Carley. They all had their own style and I think that these images show that. I’d also like to thank Tina Rodosta with Verde Beauty Studio for an awesome job.
First and formost, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! My last shoot of 2012 was with Elijah. He is a senior at Vandebilt Catholic and it was a blast hanging out with him. I imediately wanted to work with Elijah when I heard his story. Most people only see him as a outstanding athelete, however, that sits on the backburner to his dedication to his family. I wish nothing but the best to this phenomenal young man. Stay tuned for part two.
Hilary and I had a blast with Anna on her first shoot. She is a sweetheart with a bright future. We’ll be working with Anna again very soon, so stay tuned for more of her awesomness.
