The best thing photographers can do is to shoot.  Shoot a lot and practice their craft.  With each shoot, you grow as a photographer and every shoot is a learning experience.

Katrina Jackson of Katrina Jackson Photography says that this shoot was a turning point for her.  “Whenever we shoot, we always feel like it’s my best work until the next shoot comes along!” said Katrina.  “But this shoot was a definite turning point for me in my shooting and my posing…everything about this shoot was amazing – the light, the locations, the senior, the clothing, the hair and the makeup!  I was one happy photographer that day!”

This is exactly how I strive to feel after every shoot!  The end result should always be a happy client and a happy photographer.  Looking at this beautiful shoot below I can see why Katrina and her client were both Happy!!
