In 2015, I did my first ever senior session with a former work colleague and friend of mine, Erica. I had known her for well over half a year by that point and one day during general work-chats, she threw a brand new opportunity my way. Whenever this happens, a feeling arises that I can't accurately put into proper words. It's true – when the inevitable "this is my first time shooting X type of session, but I'll nail it, don't worry," conversation comes up, it always frightens me, because I don't lie about my experience as a photographer. I hate when I hear horror stories of people who have had that happen and I'd never sink so low as to pretend to be proficient at something I've never done. It's scamming someone and abusing their trust – and in a nutshell, that's not me.
