Joy | Graduation

A friend of ours is graduating!  This shoot was especially fun, since we’ve all known each other for years. It’s like having a conversation over lunch with your friends, excited about something, except you’re working instead of shoving pasta in your mouth. We’re good at keeping our subjects relaxed and comfortable, but our talent for that wasn’t necessary this time. Joy was as comfortable and sassy as she ever is, and her mother, Rita, couldn’t decide between exuberance and proud tears (but she only cried once, for, like, 45 seconds, and she wants you to know that.)

Somehow, at this location, I always find a reason to climb this one tree.  Maybe I need a drone. Anyways, Thanks for reading!
