In my efforts to develop a portfolio and get some photography practice, I volunteered my beautiful friend Jess to model for some 'faux' senior portraits. She is naturally shy in front of the camera so I'm glad she trusted me enough behind the camera to give in and accompany me to Floyd Lamb Park for a session. I think she looks stunning in all the photos and I'm already planning on using her for many more practice 'faux' shoots in the future...maybe I'll make her put her wedding dress on for me, or tuck a beach ball under her sweater for some very believable maternity photos.
You know what I think the best thing about these photos are- Jess knows how much I love to photograph my girls in hand knits, so she specifically wore this blue knit sweater in order for my portfolio to be cohesive. What a sweet friend.
