I love photographing friends. It’s one of the easiest things I do as a photographer as well as one of the most stressful. I know that’s contradictory, but I’ll explain. It’s easy because when I know someone, I know how they see themselves, how to direct them, what makes them laugh, how to make them comfortable, and that always produces the best images. It’s stressful because as an artist, there is always a fear of not doing your subject justice! You want your art to portray the people you love beautifully! (And I doubt a friend would honestly say “I actually hate that photo you took of me”). Anyway, here is a recent shoot of someone I love dearly! Look at this beauty.
My sweet friend, Torey, has been dreaming up and planning a blog for quite a while and it’s here! Living Virginia is her lifestyle blog that’s she’s working really hard on, so go check it out and give it some love!
I’ve been happy to do a bit of photography for the site, like this shoot of Torey, but she’s honing her own photography skills as well on her blog. Check it out 🙂
Love you, Tor! ❤
