I had an interesting shoot recently. I shot my first gay couple! I was expecting to shoot some girls in prom dresses with my buddy cfrancisco but he invited more than just female models to come along. I'll be honest, I definitely was not prepared for this. I directed the shots on the fly which is never good because I tend to waste time thinking of what pose to do next. After working on these photos today, a flood of ideas for poses came rushing to my mind.

Sean and Shaun were awesome to work with. I had a blast. Hopefully I'll get the chance to take more shots of them in the future.
