Angelique & Amy - Friends Session

There is something special about two young friends who are separated by many miles but have an opportunity to get together during summertime. Amy is a long time friend of my granddaughter Angelique and when she came for a brief visit, Angelique made sure they had a photo session together. Angelique really wanted me to photograph Amy by herself because she had been telling her about my photography skills. In fact, Amy brought her camera over to the house for me to give her a few pointers.

However, I decided that it would be neat to combine the sessions and photographed them together while giving Amy a few more minutes in front of the camera. It was easy photographing the girls and there are some unique images of them together. I didn't have a lot of time to shoot the session because Amy was leaving the next morning and the sun was setting when we started shooting. So, I decided to use the front porch of our house for a studio.

I hope these images will offer up memories for years to come.

I started the session with Amy to
if she could work well in front of the camera.
This is my favorite shot of my granddaughter and her friend.I asked Amy to let her hair down for
the following shots which was a great idea.
One well put statement can give you spontaneous
reactions that generates some awesome images.
Amy's Latin descent is quite obvious in this image.
Nothing like horseplay to seal a friendship.
