I had a great opportunity to meet a unique group of people at Rockville High School. The officers of the FFA club wanted to get some photos to remember this special time in their lives, as they lead the RHS Agricultural group.

Of course, I couldn't just do a standard group photo, so I asked the students to do individual shots where each one had a different backdrop to tell the story of their place as officers. They were completely willing to put up with some unconventional ideas, and be free with their creativity. We had an effective, fun session, and I'm thrilled with what we came up with!

Gotta' get in a head-shot:

This one makes me laugh-- it was all her idea, and it was an excellent choice!

The FFA Advisor:

Really, if you were in a suit and tie, don't you think the best place for a photo op would be in a goat pen? I did! :)

One of the goats was willing to enter the session:

The coordinator, helpful with all the details:

See? They were free-spirited:

'Love the black and white with her pretty eyes:

And she was happy to get a little 'out of the box': (or in it, I guess...)

Can't forget the tractors:

Blue, blue eyes:

I had to include this last one-- check out the chicken peeking out the window!

I just want to say a quick thank you to the students; they were all respectful and kind, and extremely accommodating. (A little different than my high school memories, I'm afraid! :) Also thanks to the advisor and coordinator; you made my job easy. You were all great to work with!
