What do you do when a group of teenagers you've known for years ask to you take their pre-prom photos? You say "Yes!" of course. I met with Rachel, Pat, Ella, and Owen for a quick shoot in front of the local YMCA, where all of the teens met and became friends, and where I worked with them as part of the Y's Teen Leader Corps program. Rachel's little sister, Elizabeth, is an aspiring photographer and filmmaker, and I gave her my camera to snap some photos too, so it's possible that some of these shots are hers as well.
All shots with the 5D Mark II and 50mm f/1.4 lens, processed in Lightroom.
