This weekend I had the awesome opportunity to try my hand for the first time at portrait photography – and you can judge for yourself, but I think it went pretty well!

I read through some quick refreshers prior to heading out and browsed through some google images for pose ideas. We made our way to the little pond / park area in the subdivision across the street from me around 4pm, when the sun was at a great point in the sky. Later we moved to a dirt road just around the corner.

After the shoot, I pretty quickly went through the collection and applied some post effects to the best ones. They’re below, make sure you click on the photo to see the larger version.

I have to say that I’m pretty proud of myself for these. Thanks to Joy & Jason for the opportunity! Let me know what you think!
