I must admit, I was quite nervous going into the session with Bobby because, if you know anything about him, you know how amazingly artistic he is in every way. I knew that I would be stretched creatively and forced to think outside the box of “normal” portrait photography. However, Bobby’s fun and upbeat personality quickly made my worries go away as we discovered the hidden beauty of downtown Springfield. Personally, I have always been intrigued by the different people I have come into contact with downtown. This session forced me to open my eyes to the equally unique art and graffiti that plasters every wall and alley. It is not always easy to allow yourself to be stretched. However, the results are always worth it in the end. I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am with how the pictures from this session turned out.
Bobby – Thanks for forcing me to think differently in an effort to bring out your creative personality. You have been given such a wonderful gift, and I love to see the drawings and paintings that you come up with. Your creative personality is so inspirational to all of the people that you are around. You have been an inspiration in my life and now in my photography. I am excited to see the influence that you will have on others in the future as well.
