Annalee Senior 2020 Take 2

These were actually the first photos we took for her senior photos.  I did the other ones out of order 🙂 We took these shots, as you will see, at Tooele High School.

Tyler’s Senior Portaits

Last fall when senior portraits were being taken, Tyler and I had difficulty getting together to have senior pictures done.  We took a quick shot of him in the yard to submit to the yearbook with the thought of doing more photos soon.

Nicole Cowley Photo Shoot

ISO 100, 85mm, f/1.8, 1/500sec Saturday afternoon I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a beautiful young lady, Nicole.  The weather was overcast and raining on and off for the start of the shoot.  The wind was also blowing briskly. ISO 100, 50mm, f/2.0, 1/2000sec Both of these situations I think added rather than detracted …
