So… the beauty of having a sister for a photographer is that you pay less.  Unfortunately… it means you wait until she feels like editing before you get to see much of your session. Oops.

Whooops, wrong settings! Thank goodness I shoot in RAW, or I would have completely ruined this sweet smile and dimple from the always lovely Becca.Fellow photogs - have you come over to the dark side to shoot RAW? The left is straight out of the camera. All those blown highlights are so, so sad, but we’re only human, and hitting the wrong settings DOES happen on occasion. It’s worth the transition period. Promise!

Had to post this one first - even though her hair is in her face (the wind tonight was BRUTAL!) - because the pose reminded her of her senior portraits, one of which remains a lifelong favorite photo.

DID YOU KNOW… One of CC’s many talents is the ability to grow nearly anything? She has quite the green thumb, and pansies are one of her favorite flowers. ♥
