Bryan and Marijo Cuerrier show how they value everyday after battling flesh-eating disease.
News photography assignment this week was a one prop portrait.
I had the idea in my mind of doing a shot of a kid playing a video game. I used one flash with a green gel to represent the TV for her face. Then a second flash to light up the prop (game controller).
I knocked on my neighbors door nine o clock Saturday night to borrow her 14 year old daughter to take pictures of her. Not creepy at all. Lol.
Luckly they were ok with it but I had to wait till this morning.
My assignment is due at 4 pm today. It is done and I am happy with the results.
Thanks to Alex Woods for being my model early this morning.

It is the day after thanksgiving. I am sitting here recouping from two days of good food, friends and family.
I spent my Thanksgiving morning interviewing an amazing couple. Just a year ago the husband lost both of his legs, one arm, and the tips of his fingers on the other hand to flesh eating disease. His wife (at the time of the operations she was his girlfriend) stood by his side the whole time.
Even though it has only been a year since losing his limbs he has been biking, golfing, sailing and even got married. They both have a love life and get on with it attitude.
I realized for myself I am so thankful for the career I have chosen. Being a journalist has allowed me to meet so many amazing people and to hear such incredible stories.
Of course I am grateful for my family, health, and friends but my career choice tops the list this year. I am so grateful for all the people who have opened up their lives for me and looking forward to the new people I meet in the future.
