What’s Been Goin’ On…

It’s been a busy 10 days, but I wanted to catch you up on what’s been going on with me lately.  In addition to the previous senior photo shoots of Sami Jo and Vivian, I attended a Bengals football party at a friends’ house, but didn’t watch a minute of the game.  I’m not much of a sports watching fan.  I enjoy the conversation with friends at parties and love to be active, hiking, jogging, biking, etc.  I contacted an acquaintance, who is a model, to see if he’d like to meetup at an area park for a quick outdoor photo shoot and to get to know each other a bit better.  He usually does magazine or runway modeling, so I thought a fun casual shoot might be a change of pace for him.  Isn’t he cute…

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  ~Marianne Williamson
