First Session

My first photography session of the year came unexpectedly on the what was probably the warmest day we’ll have this month.  On Wednesday, when temps were comfortably in the 50s, I got a call from a young man named James, who was looking to have headshots done.  Because I shoot on-location, I’m limited, especially when the cold weather rolls around.  Thankfully, he was able to meet up that day, which is exactly what we did.


James was a lot of fun to work with.  We made our way around Westhampton, chatting about life and finding different locations to work with.


I learned that James is currently a freshman in college, taking business classes.  He’s taken an interest in acting though, which is where the need for headshots came in.


I had a great time talking with James about his future dreams and aspirations.  I love that there are so many paths that one can take in life.  They may not always look the same as others, but that is the beauty of living in a diverse world with many opportunities.


We finished up our session and I was able to get his portraits edited quickly so that he could start to send them out with his resume.  Though unexpected, it was a wonderful session, extra blessed with a random day of great weather.  Considering that just a couple of days later, there are a few inches of snow currently covering the ground, it seems that we were able to get this session done just in time.  I wish James all the best and he starts new adventures and am so thankful to have my first session of the year completed.
