I had the privilege this weekend of photographing Ms. Katherine Hope, founder of Y.W.S. otherwise known as “You Will Survive”. Currently an online blog and soon-to-be magazine dedicated to supporting single parents with valuable insights, practical information, and creative ideas. They are a community of single parents dedicated to helping one another survive!
Ms. Hope was in the market for a fresh new photo for her website and I had a great time working with her. We did a mini outdoor session. It had just finished raining so I used my Nikon SB700 Speedlight as an additional light source and reduced power quite a bit to about 1/8. You would never know it was a rainy day though with a little post production magic! In a perfect world, I would have shot her in the late afternoon on a sunny day but it’s not a perfect world. Sometimes, you have to make the most of what you have and make a great picture. Ms. Hope was very happy with the finished product and so am I.
I am looking forward to working with Katherine on other Y.W.S. projects as an onboard photographer for the magazine. She is a fantastic individual who has a heart for helping others. I’m very excited about our new venture. I know this publication will be a valuable resource to many single parents trying to cope with everyday struggles. Here are some favorites from our session..
