I had a senior yearbook photo shoot recently with Chelsea. She brought along her boyfriend, Ricky who was in many of the shots. It was a mixture of senior photo/couples photo shoot and I rather enjoyed it.

I am now in a lull between photo shoots with nothing planned in the next few weeks. I am needing a little bit of a break because I am feeling a little bit burnt out after photo shoots, canceled shoots, tons of rescheduling, and editing tons of photos.
I will probably look for more people with costumes for the Superheroes project I am doing closer to Halloween. People tend to have costumes around Halloween that may work and that makes it easier to find people to pose for this project in late Oct.
I will also be updating my website which is in a huge need up updating. It has been a while since I put new images on there and I now have a lot of images to choose from to add into the site.
I am going to try and move toward more paying photo shoots because, like most everyone else in the world, I could use the money. So, that is in the plans as well. I will still have projects (like the Superheroes one) where I have the model pose in exchange for images but if someone approaches me with ideas they want me to shoot them in? I will have to charge them. It has to happen because I need to upgrade my equipment and also save up some money. Start moving into the professional realm more often.
It is nice to have a breather before I head on to the next shoot. It will give me a little time to recharge and plan.
