PLP Photograpy

My long time dream was to be a photographer and now my dream is coming true.  Yes I still have a lot to learn and each photo shoot and outing I'm learning more and more.

My favorite photos to take are of dancers.  What better photographer to have than a dancer taking your photos. 

Here are some articles on photo shoots, how to prepare for a photo shoot and more.
