As an Atlanta portrait photographer, it’s always weird to photograph someone you know. I pride myself as being a very honest individual. However, with those I’m closest to, I’m almost TOO honest. Photographing Patrick was such a different experience than photographing my regular clients. Although I always seek professionalism in the way I pose my subjects, my instructions with friends are usually much more casual. “Suck in your gut and sit up straight! Your face looks stupid when you do that. Don’t ever do that face again. Omg that angle is horrible – your double chins are showing!”
Despite my blatant remarks, at the end of the day I am still loved (usually). My friends are awesome people for putting up with my candidness. 🙂
Patrick will be graduating from Kennesaw State University in the Winter of 2012 with his degree in Finance. The images below were shot around the school campus.
