LaToya | One-on-One Mentor Session [August 8] | Chicago, IL Photography Instructor

Happy Mentor Monday loves!

Can you believe we are in the last quarter of 2015? There is so much I’d like to (and need to) accomplish before the start of the new year and knocking out these mentoring recaps is but one of the things on that list :) I’m actually going to start spacing them out so that instead of Mentor Monday every week, it will be every other week from now until the end of the year! 

Today? I have the recap from my Chicago one-on-one session with LaToya! You may recall seeing her & her fiance’s beautiful faces early this year when I blogged her engagement session! Then Adrian & I shot their gorgeous Chicago wedding in May :)


(I’ve yet to blog the day because I’m behind on wedding posts! But it will be shared soon :)

LaToya has recently gotten into photography and I was so honored that she wanted to invest in a one-on-one session with me! She wanted to kind of cut the learning curve and be sure that she was going about things the right way, and when I say she is doing amazingly, please believe it! Here is a quick before of one of her images prior to our session:


And here is one of her best images now! This was actually from her first family shoot less than one week following our session:


So so happy and proud of her ^_^ Check out the headshots we snapped from the first half of LaToya’s session:


We had the cutest family for her practice session! Michelle’s beautiful family was so pleasant to work with and little miss Riley is soo full of personality :) Not to mention, they are a family with 3 heads of gorgeous hair! Lol
