My First...

Last Tuesday was my first photoshoot EVER... as a photographer. I don't even think I can call myself an amateur photographer. It still sounds like I know what I'm doing. I prefer... picture taker. But seriously, props to all the photographers out there, you guys make it look effortless. There are so many things to juggle like lighting, shooting mode, aperture, shutter speed, iso... I had enough to do just trying to stop my contacts from shifting around as I looked through the viewfinder.

Anyways, this was for a photography class, so we had strict perimeters to work with both technically and creatively. Feel free to leave your thoughts about anything, technique, the model, theme.

Model: Christine

* My heart goes out to all those in Japan. Stay strong! To my favourite cousin: you'll be home before you know it <3.


  1. The photos are really beautiful! I would love to follow each other! I follow you<3.

  2. The first two are my fav, you're so much more than a picture taker!
