[I really love that man standing next to me!]
The photo above was taken at an engagement shoot that a friend, Christy, and her husband did for us. I remember feeling so awkward in front of the camera. Can you tell by looking at the picture? Probably not at all, because Christy did such a great job at making me feel comfortable. I haven't pressured her for the photos since I know she has more pressing matters in her life. She has been really good about sending me photos every once and awhile with images from the shoot. She said that the next time I see her she'll give me a CD with all the photos. I'm so excited. I can't even remember what we wore or where we went, so it will be a nice surprise!
Christy and her husband are so cute when they shooting together. She's great at making people feel comfortable and getting their personality to shine. Her husband is the genius behind the camera. Christy also takes great photos with her own camera. She and her husband offered to let me join them on their next engagement shoot to practice taking photos with my camera. Christy knows that I really love photography and that I want to learn to be a better photographer. They're going to give me tips and pointers throught the shoot. I'm BEYOND EXCITED! It will definitely help me to cross off #16 from my list!
Excited and nervous. I think I will need to read my camera manual to brush up on all the features and buttons. (In all honesty, I only know what about 1/3 of them do!)
