Day 86: Youth not wasted

click photo for larger version

High School Seniors are my favorites to photograph. There is something about this time in a person's life that just sparkles with possiblity, vitality, attitude....life. Today I was honored with photographing a young lady from my church, Lacie Gassett. I have to tell you, despite having photographed many, many seniors, this was the most intimidating. You see, Lacie is herself an incredible photographer. And being asked to photograph a photographer is....well, it's scary. Just ask my wife who had to try and calm my nerves as I was getting ready this afternoon.

Lacie, thanks for letting me capture this time in your life. You have an amazing future and I can't wait to see what develops.

Camera info: 70-200mm lens at 195mm. 1/40 sec at f/4.0. ISO 100. Here's another from our shoot.

Oh, geez, if someone as talented as YOU gets nervous, what hope is there for the rest of us beginners??? :)

The photo(s) of Lacie are great ... I'm sure the entire session was wonderful. You certainly had a lovely day for it yesterday!

Love how the flowers are rushing around her, like they are bees and she is the nectar.
