I was a little nervous, at first. I happily observed her from a distance, content with the safety that distance provided. Thank you, zoom lens.
My technique didn’t last as long as I hoped it would. Jessica is afraid of heights, too, but it wasn’t stopping her from wanting her senior pictures taken on the edge of a cliff. I couldn’t let her do it alone. I wanted to give her the same effort she was giving me, so, I let out a nervous laugh, switched lenses, and came closer. I was glad I did. The view was worth it, and I was able to get some of my favorite pictures of the day.
I can’t take all the credit, however. Jessica made it pretty easy. She is casual and confident – a girl truly comfortable in her own skin. She is funny and bright, and as you may have heard, slightly athletic. (I knew she would have no trouble jumping back to the rock we came from.) On top of all this, she likes to read. For fun.
Thanks, Jessica, for the wonderful day. Looking forward to more this winter!
