    This client was my first time doing a senior with physical handicaps. When we met for a consultation, time to get to know her, time for her to see my portfolio . . . she said I want SNOW pictures. Sadly, this was November and there was NO snow in Utah in November SHOCKING! Fortuneatly, her session was scheduled for January. True to Utah's reputation, we had a few good storms and got some beautiful snow! It was physically hard for her to manuever the snow, but she was such a trooper. She wanted to go anywhere that I thought would make a good picture!

    Here they are:

    2. This was another request, a window picture. This was my first time using my living room as a photo location!

    Views 2 and 6..... very nice!

    I'm sure you'll clone the lamp out of the background in 6. Good posing in this one too.

    Great work! No. 6 is my favorite (but 2 is right up there also!), as long as the lamp pole is cloned out ~ it really jumped out at me! I love how those two pictures convey totally different feelings, especially for a young girl with a physical handicap. The other pictures are just nice portraits, but to me, those two actually have feeling and "say" something about her.

    These are some of the best pictures I've seen you post yet. Yes, clone the lamp out and the last one, the color is off compared to the others, other than that, excellent job!

    These are really fantastic. I agree that I think they are some of your best. The colors and composition are great :)

    I like number 4 for some reason. It just really stands out to me and it actually looks like a senior picture to pass out to your friends. Number 2 in the livingroom I thought turned out nicely done as well. Good job on all of them. :thumbup:

    WOW! Thanks guys :blushing:. I really, really wanted these to be just perfect for her! I think it forced me out of my comfort zone! I think I stopped and thought through each shot- I looked twice at every lighting and shadow situation. They had to be awesome for her! She was just so sweet and happy, and I didn't want the fact that she had a physical disability, to be the reason she didn't have great pictures!

    That last one I really pushed the post production. I wanted it to scream SPUNK! I think that's why it's different coloring than the others.
