I went for my second ever photo shoot on Sunday with a photographer in Bellville, IL. Pj came with me, as always, as my escort and assistant.  These photos were taken in the photographer's home studio. It was a very good learning experience for me. It's interesting that photographers can work so differently. What one photographer may love, the other wants the oposite. With my first shoot, I was used to sitting up straight, working my angles and tilting my chin down. this photographer liked me leaning forward with my chin up. I practiced different poses and am really learning my strengths and weaknesses. Hands are SO hard for me to pose without them looking like claws or mitts. I've been studing other model's hands and watching You Tube videos to try to practice elegant, feminine hand poses. It doesn't help that I have crafty girl hands, crack my knuckles and keep my nails short for my hobbies. These are some of the best images from my second shoot.

My 3rd photo shoot is this weekend at a local carnival. I'm really looking forward to getting outside again. I love the natural light and when I have interesting scenery, I really get into it and have a great time!
