Hello!

Welcome to my site. I take photos, and learn life lessons. I hope you are inspired by what you find.

Ezra 7:10

“Now Ezra had determined in his heart to study the law of the LORD, obey it, and teach its statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

She said...

... Shut up and dance with me.

 

     Okay, so hopefully Talia wasn't that mean, but she did attend her first high school dance on January 27.

 

     I was attending a coaching conference in Kansas City when she was going to be taking pictures.  My wife was going to do it.  As the time got closer and closer, I decided that this was a moment I couldn't afford to miss.  I left the conference early and met them just in time to capture some images of my daughter and her friend before they headed off to eat and dance the night away.

They had decided to take their pictures at "The Square" in Independence. There are many great places to pose and get some good images there. This wrought iron railing worked perfectly for them to lean against.

Sadly, this tree had several areas of lights that were out. I wish they would have all been lit. I love this close-up picture though. Talia had her hair done by my wife's sister. Such a beautiful you lady my daughter has grown into.

Talia went to the dance with her band buddy Addison. I'm so glad that she has such great friends. They met up with others at the dance, and they said they had a great time.

A great picture of two friends, but I wish that I would have thought more about the background. They should have been centered on the fence and the doors in the background. Oh well, that's why I'm an amature.

I did better with this one. They are at least closer to centered. I do wish that I would have had them put opposite hands in front. Perhaps that's just the math teacher in me looking for symetry.

Street lights on "The Square" are a great place to pose. I like this one a lot. I just wish I could have moved that car out of the background.

Another shot, this one full body, of Talia and Addison at one of the light posts.

For some reason, every time my daughter passes a stairwell she wants to take pictures in it. She thinks they are "aesthetically pleasing" or something. Okay, perhaps she might be right. This stairwell did make for a nice place to pose these two friends.
