Senior Photo Shoot & Request

WARNING: Picture Heavy!

I spent the weekend in Ohio taking pictures-LOTS of pictures!  It was an easy assignment though as the model for this shoot was my niece Julia.  She is a senior in high school and wanted her old aunt to shoot her.  Mom wanted me to do it for a couple of reasons, number one being the price tag-free!  Ha!
Julia is a beautiful girl inside and out, but she is completely unaware of her outer beauty.  Hard to believe, but true.  She is a natural beauty and the camera loved her.  Let me show you a few of my favorites:

Love that maxi dress on her!  We went out early in the morning in an attempt to beat the high sun and the heat.  It didn't work.  It was HOT!  We kept going back to the car to sit in it with the A/C on just to cool off a bit. 
My sister asked that I take a picture from behind so that in 20 years or so, Julia can look at this picture and say 'Boy, I had a great ass  behind.' !!  Who can appreciate that, raise your hand!
Lake Erie was so warm.  This beach is just lovely too, it's fairly large and has nice sand.  It's close to the parking lot so not a lot of walking and they have a little cafe and clean bathrooms-but it was empty.
I was wading in the water to get some of the shots that I wanted and let me tell you, it felt great.

After we were done at this location we went back to the house to cool off for a bit and get some lunch. ( I took a 10 minute power nap. ) After a while Sarg. (aka: my sister) told Julia to change and we would go over to her High School to get a few shots there. We made it a quick mini session as it was so hot and the sun was really too bright.

This is their little dog JASL.  She is such a sweet dog.  She is full grown and weighs only 4 pounds!  Quite a change from my 70-80 pound labs.  JASL was happy to pose with Julia.

I wound up with lots of good shots and plenty for them to choose from.  These photos are straight out of the camera, no editing as of yet.  Haven't had the time to play with Photoshop yet.  Please let me know what you think as I would love to get some feedback.  All were shot in Manual mode, some with my Canon 50mm lens and some with my Tamron AF70-200mm lens.

One last thing, Isabella's School Age class at La Petite is trying to get postcards sent to them from all 50 states and anywhere outside the US too.  If you can,  please send a postcard to:
La Petite Academy
Attn: Isabella
150 Old Farm Drive

Thanks.  Hope to hear from you soon!
