Photos of me by my sister.
I went home Sunday to visit my family and to help my younger sister Nikki with her senior portraits. I cannot believe she's old enough to be getting these done already! I remember being really anxious about what photos to put in my senior ad collage in my yearbook, and so I'm glad that I was able to help my sister out. I even got to help her pick out her outfit! It was so strange though to be behind the camera for once. I'm used to taking my own outfit photos and just knowing how to direct myself, but it was quite a different story to telling someone else how to pose and do this and that.
As for my outfit, I thought I'd try out my new sweater vest that I thrifted last week. It's very slouchy and comfortable, and somehow fit my vibe of artsy-photographer-person for the day. The vest also was very practical as well -- its deep pockets became essential for holding memory cards and candy.
Since we were taking senior portraits, it seemed natural to go to a place where I'd be familiar with the lighting, so we went back to my beloved farm park. It was actually quite a scene because a lot of people seemed to have the same idea on that beautiful gorgeous afternoon because we saw about a dozen people doing photography stuff as well. We saw a couple of engagement sessions and some girls getting senior portraits done. It is a beautiful place for it, so it makes sense, but usually the park is a very quiet place.
What was really cool about going with my sister to the farm park is that I discovered a new photo place. I thought I had that place all figured out, too, after months of going there. But we actually went under the long bridge and got some good photos there. Here are some of my favorites that I took:
