Plano Senior Photography Assistant

Who is the best Plano senior photography assistant a girl could ask for?  I'm glad you asked.  :)

Without a doubt, I'm talking about my husband, Paul.

Paul and I have been married for 14 years now and, I have to say, we make a great photography team. Paul and I have two sons of our own; we were married when his daughters were 4, 9, and 13.  So, needless to say, we have a lot of experience with all ages.

What makes Paul such a great assistant is that he understands what I'm going for most of the time and we communicate very effectively to ensure I get what I want to get out of a shot. He's super with the seniors, too. When we are photographing a reluctant senior, he has a way of chatting with him/her and the senior starts to feel comfortable right away. Also, he is my biggest fan. He encouraged my photography and creativity from the start and I wouldn't be the photographer I am without him. Not only is he there for moral support, but he is a terrific lighting assistant, too.  I love his sure-footedness on the rocks where we work sometimes and appreciate the help in carrying my equipment.

When we first show up for a session, did you know he is always my model? Yes, that's how I get the lighting right from the start.  We set it all up and I ask him to get in front of the camera for a few seconds so I can check everything.  He knows the drill. We do it every time.

This is a typical shot:

I get a little anxious when I'm waiting for a session so we have a routine and this is part of it.  Never told anyone about this before, but now you know. Paul's the best.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I love senior photography and I love that my sweet husband works with me. Life is good.
