With two major issues facing me, 1. a firm belief that I'm not photogenic, resulting in a horrible fear of the camera, and 2. being a very heavy sweater, even on the coldest winter day, I was less than willing to face the lens of a professional photographer. With the phone contact, Lanny immediately put me at ease. Yet I continued to delay. Upon meeting Lanny, I knew I was with a friend. Ever patient and gently encouraging, he directed me in posing naturally and comfortably. Bear in mind my nickname over the centuries since college yearbook season has been "Stone Face." I so pleased to report that Lanny produced, untouched, the only three photos of me that I actually love. Without reservation, I'm happy to say that Lanny is not only a true professional, but a sincere, personable, and genuine human being I am proud to say I know.
