I love this job! I love the different people I get to meet and the different places I get to see. I met Christin a couple weeks ago in Houston, after she signed up for our mentorship, but we've been connecting and chatting for most of 2012 via Twitter and Skype. One day online she jokingly mentioned me going to Texas to teach my style of photography... and I quickly responded that I had always wanted to visit Houston. She got her friends together and over the course of the following two months we made this dream happen and in late March I headed south. I got off the plane and headed straight to meet Christin for the first time and her beautiful family in Downtown. I was so nervous. Christin is actually QUITE talented herself (more of that in a later blog about my mentoring experience) and I just wanted to do a good job. She had never ever done family pictures and I couldn't fly all the way south from Seattle and fail. The night was warm, the light was perfect and this family... scrumptious! Christin, thank you for trusting not only your business but your sweet family with my gift! I hope these images are a gift to you!
