What a Smile

A friend called me up one day: “Sierra! I know this very dear girl that is graduating this year! I want to pay for her senior pictures to be taken as a gift. She is such an amazing young lady with a heart of gold, but she is really, really shy…. I know you will be able to get her to be comfortable and capture her beautiful smile!”

What a compliment! I think a photographer’s greatest challange is getting their clients to feel comfortable and look natural for the camera. I often compare myself with the dentist: Everyone hates to see me but I try to bring out your beautiful smile! 🙂

And take a look at this amazing smile! Lucky for me, she made my job easy. As promised, her heart is as beautiful as her smile.

Downtown Olympia

I am so lucky to live in an area where I have so many great scenic photo opportunities. Mix that with having such a lovely soon-to-be grad and I’m one happy photographer! We had rain forecasted for the day before and the day after our planned shoot: anyone who knows Western Washington is aware that planning with the weather forecast is a gamble. Lucky for us the clouds parted just long enough for us to capture some great memories!

Today I had the pleasure of taking photos for a long known family at their son’s graduation. Crazy how the time flies… I was there the day he was born, and now he’s all grown up! This was like my second family growing up! Congratulations Mark!!
