Senior photo shoot, downtown Chicago at UIC (the University of Illinois in Chicago). This young man hopes to transfer here after earning his Associate's degree from his local community college. He is on his way to medical school!
 May 28 -- Senior portrait at Hull House
I like the below shot because it gives the feeling of walking into sunshine, and a bright future.
 May 29 -- Toward a bright future
Not all the portraits will be chosen for prints. The one below probably won't make the 8x10 list. Goofing off for the camera every now and then relieves stress. It's hard to focus on what the photographer tells you to do--smiling, leaning against a wall, or looking this way and that. Goofy faces take care of all that. :)
 May 30 -- A senior portrait--NOT
In preparation for all of the workshops I coordinate at our state convention, I printed out new "countdown" numbers to wave at the speakers as time runs out in their workshops. The convention runs like clockwork, and there is not a lot of variance for running over one's time! So I try to make sure my speakers stay within the time limits.
 May 31 -- Numbers
My first workshop! Matthew McNatt spoke to parents homeschooling their special needs students. He was very encouraging, and a fascinating person to get to know. I'm so glad I invited him to speak at our convention!
 June 1 -- My conference speaker
My #3 son Danny was able to attend a workshop where the students dissected a sheep's brain. Me--YUCK. Danny--COOL. And, if you wondered--YES, this is the same young man from the senior portraits above. :)
 June 2 -- Picking your brain
That's it through last Friday. Next week I'll wrap up the last day of the convention, and add some new photos. Who knows what I'll post! I'm definitely not relaxing this week--preparations for yet another event are on the calendar! I sure hope you all have a super week as summer begins to warm things up.
