Have you ever had a photo assignment that you thought “piece of cake!” when the talk about it came up? And when you least expected it, it became the most challenging shoot to date?
I never thought I would be the emotional type when it came to my siblings growing up. But several months ago, my ‘little’ sister asked if I could do her senior photos. Lydia and I have gotten closer since I’ve moved away from home for school (which is ironic to me, because we’ve shared a bedroom for almost 18 years). But I think photographing the things and people you are closest to can typically become your toughest challenges. To ‘remove’ yourself from the moment, while being a part of that moment is, in my opinion, is a challenge of every photographer.
Every day is a learning experience, whether you're a photographer, cashier, unemployed, college student, or a 99 year old grandma. But for Miss West Holmes Senior, Lydia Marie Schonauer, it’s just beginning.
Live by faith & share through fotos.
