Behind the Scenes 2017: My many faces and weird shooting positions

Behind the Scenes 2017:

My many faces and weird shooting positions


The year end is here and with it a long road traveled. I usually keep the behind the scenes to myself but thought it would be fun for you to see some behind the scenes. 

SIDE NOTE: This year I tried a fanny pack. Yes, yes I did. Although handy, I realize now how ridiculous I look. Next year, I’ll be more fancy and get me a waist apron to carry all the junk I like to have nearby.

Let me share with you a couple of goodies and blackmail material. 


First, here’s me shooting:

I love this lens! Heavy, but I do love it.


This year, I wore dresses to two weddings. Did I mention I don’t like dresses? You wonder why?

Because, I go ON the dance floor with all my couples and their guests. I get my best angles this way.

And my shooting poses are to envy.

The only time I look flexible.

I also like pretending to dance with my invisible soul mate.

My dancing is spot on.

Sometimes my mind wonders and a guest photo bombs me.

I think I was calculating the space time continuum.
Then I make them my wife and cut the cake like a boss. (We didn’t really cut it!)
Lighting check is serious business.

Then maybe not.

My go to face for all pictures.
Anything for a good angle which includes laying on the fresh cut grass.

My face when I realize I may not be able to stand up by myself.

Thanks to this picture, I vow to exercise in 2018.

The day I got a dance and kept shooting.

You shake it, I photograph it.
The day my hair was on point. It doesn’t happen often, so this may be my favorite picture.

OK, I lied. This is my favorite picture! Truly captures the way I am and feel during the day.

Thank you Leigh Anne for this image!

Thank you to Nelan for being my desserts’ soulmate this year.

A special thanks to Leigh Anne, Ola, Myesha and Jasmine for stepping in when I needed an extra hand.

I can’t wait for next year!
