I am extremely proud of how these photos turned out! I was a little worried at first, I thought that capturing authentic emotions would be difficult. I thought that my photos would look staged and I felt awkward just following my friends around with a camera. The first few photos I took did turn out very awkward because my friends were very aware of the presence of the camera. After spending some more time with them I was able to sneak a shot in the middle of their sweet smiles and laughs. I really enjoyed taking these photos because the subject matter is important to me and I love capturing my friends unique and interesting personalities.
