Senior Photos Mason

So as many of you know, I love taking photos. A former coworker asked me over the summer to take some photos of her senior son (who I had as a 5th grader clarinet student way back when!) and I was absolutely thrilled she asked me. I was very flattered and of course nervous. We finally settled on a date to take them and we got them taken this week. I was worried but the session went really well and I think we got some good shots. 

I hope Mason and his family enjoy them and they are good reminders of this time in his life. 

As for me...
I am gaining confidence in my skills but there are still lots of things I need to learn and I don't really have the time to dedicate to it right now. I still look at my photos and think of all the things I see that are wrong but I know every eye sees different things. I am still learning how to find (and shoot in) good light, making sure my editing is consistent across the board, and finding (and modeling) good poses. I did lots of pinterest research for poses and a little practicing with my husband (thanks for letting me act like a dork around you, Scott!). Overall this session was a lot of fun for me and I learned a lot. I have a few other photography sessions lined up in the future so I am not sure where this is all going but I do love to help out friends and family because I know how fleeting life is and how important photos are. 

I just wanted to share that with you. :o) 

Have a great day! 


  1. These photos are great Rose! I am sure this young man and his mom are very pleased with them! You have so much talent, you always get amazing pictures of everything. :) -LH

  2. wow, these are fantastic! i love the poses, and the Coca-Cola backdrop is a perfect match! Mason and his family will love them -- it's very kind of you to offer your talent. you are putting the new camera and lens to good use. i really like the 85mm, too : ) i find that i learn a lot after i see the photos and what i can do differently ... better late than never!
