So Happy Labor Day everyone!
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
I just wanted to share MY contribution to this movement and what I bring. My Labor of Love if you will. The camera! The Image! Yesterday I got to hang out with some really close friends and for me some of them was my first time meeting them, but through social media and the interweb we were able to get to know each other way before we met yesterday in person. We had a "shootout" which is basically a styled shoot with models and we in the simplest terms become the paparazzi!!! Hahahahaha, well it felt that way! Only with lighting equipment everywhere if your not just a natural light photographer and nature to deal with.
To get to the spot I rather have attended a cross fit gym and spent 2 hours there. Yea, that would have been easier. Oh mental note. Get an assistant for stuff like this!
There have been many people before me with way more important contributions to our county and society that have made this day possible for you and me to enjoy a day off but this is part of mine. The gift that I have been given. The gift of creativity.
Here is an image of one of our models Taylor, a big shout out to her and fighting the trek, heat, mosquitos, snakes, and turantulas, and worst of all. Us damn photographers lol.
So doing shoots like this is a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because you get to meet some pretty awesome people and get to show a few things that your capable of. Using and controlling natural light, use different lighting, and my favorite! Helping others get to their next level of offer some insight as to why I shot something a certain way. Our beautiful Mom Jacky below was game for anything! Getting in the water was a must! With the heat and the cool water I just had to follow along! Mental note number ✌🏼️.

So my last couple was Brittany + Edgar. If Brittany looks familiar to some it's because she is an awesome hair stylist and owner at Hair By Brittany Baxter and specializes in hair color and balayage. So if you looking for an awesome hair stylist info will be at the bottom of this post.
