“Graduation Speech: I’d like to thank the internet, Google, Wikipedia, Microsoft Word, and Copy & Paste.”

MY, how times have changed since my college graduation.  Wiki-what?

A week ago I got a call around 6am (In my world, 6AM = less -than-one-cup-of-coffee-AM) from a potential client requesting a session for her daughter.  Something about University of Rochester, Graduation, Texas and “today at 11am”.  Calendar check and was I was available.  Yay for me!

Side note – I contemplate often with pursuing my photography career.  It is a tough job! (Wah Wah) No reliable income, no office to chat daily with co-workers, and like any form of art – it’s completely subjective.  Some people love my work.  Some people – not so much.

As I walked around the University of Rochester Campus with a proud mom and a new college grad, the passion for my career was reignited.  Watching the mom-daughter connection at this special time of their lives was heartwarming.  It was a great session.  By the end, it was hard to say good-bye.  They were packing up and driving back home to Texas.  I probably won’t cross paths with them again.  How is it after a two hour session, I feel like family???

Then I shift gears… excitement for editing!  A week of editing where some of these images literally make me laugh out loud.  Many give me that warm and fuzzy feeling – a great capture!  So, here are a few I’d like to share.  Again, some people love my work.  Some not so much!  So if you are the “not so much”…  Zip it!

Congratulations Michelle!
