Hello, Everyone, As an aspiring photographer, there are occasions where I get to do some pretty cool shoots involving other people.  I’ve had that chance twice now, in the last few months.  First, just before leaving Hawaii, I got the opportunity to shoot family location photos for some dear friends of mine out on the   Read More …
