What a lovely way to start my photoblog. One of my best friends in the world, Emily, was engaged to her wonderful boyfriend Matt on September 19th. Matt asked me to help him scheme a fool proof plan to get Emily down to the shore in Laguna Beach where they met without her suspecting the proposal. She thought she was doing me a favor by getting all cleaned up to do a couple’s photo shoot for my portfolio, but I was conveniently “late” so Matt could pop the question. Meanwhile, I waited up at Cafe Vienna for the word to come down and do a short shoot with them. It was so much fun to photograph them right after such an emotional moment.
So… over the last two years, I have tended to start random blogs on random host sites, striving for perfection, only to waffle and eventually retreat when said perfection can’t be achieved. My post-graduate self is trying to grow, however, and embrace that I will continue to learn and improve and fail and succeed until the day I die. I love taking pictures. I love taking pictures of people (and things). Those people (and things?) usually want to see those pictures. I’m an obsessive people pleaser. It all adds up. So as I said, here we go again. This time I’m really sticking to it… I promise. Raise your hand if you’ve heard me say that before. Shut up. Who asked you?
Your comments are beyond welcome (I crave constant feedback!). Things may start off with a heavy load of posts and slowly taper off to once or twice a week… I’ve got a lot of catching up to do:).
