I’ve never done a New Years mini shoot before! Jenn and Harif were looking for a creative and personal way to connect with their clients for the holiday. I think we nailed it. www.hazerarealestate.com
The Chironnas are so energetic and fun that it only made sense to shoot their family photos at Disney’s Boardwalk. The weather was perfect and we had a ton of fun. We enjoyed the walk and it felt more like hanging out than a photo shoot. I can’t wait to shoot there again :)
After years of development, it was finally time for SpaceX to send a Tesla Roadster into space. I got "Feel The Heat" tickets and waited my way through lines of people at Kennedy Space Center to get a front row view. Bill Nye was the guest speaker.
As a rare and special treat, we got to visit the KSC landing strip. Even the bus driver was excited. Then we made our way to the viewing area. It was a beautiful day out and I had plenty of good conversation with fellow photographers. A few bald eagles flew by as if it was a sign saying, "AMERICA" and also, "yes, this rocket will launch today and you won't have to come back tomorrow".
When it launched, everyone was so excited. It was slow moving - an illusion of the angle and a reality of it's size. It was loud. It was awesome. I didn't "feel the heat", which was actually a relief. When the Falcon Heavy was mid-air, the entire viewing area got quiet... because after all, this was a test launch and the safety message was replaying in our heads about how we are in an inherently risky zone. Oh right...
Once the rocket disappeared, we waited a few minutes for the booster landings. The sonic boom happened right about the time they landed and it sounded like loud fireworks in the distance. Mission accomplished!
