This week's BackPacker Giveaway winner, Randy McKown, is a successful Senior Portrait and Wedding Photographer in Kansas City. Randy's business, NewImage Photography, specializes in creative images that express the unique personality and style of each of his clients.
"This photo was taken during one of my senior portrait sessions here in the Kansas City area. I love shooting seniors because it’s such a special time for them. A lot of girls spend years looking forward to this moment. So when the time comes, I do what I can to make them feel like a model for the day.
This shot was taken in front of these giant metal doors of a church that’s located in a small religious community called Unity Village, just outside of the city. I love the contrast between the dark doors and her red dress. What makes this picture even more memorable is that this senior was the daughter of our very close friends. This was her special day." - Randy
