Last night was the first of the two beach mini sessions we are holding this summer and I had so much fun! The weather was perfection and while I love our studio for newborn work, I adore getting outdoors for just about every other type of portrait. And sunset is absolutely the best time of day to shoot! If I didn’t have a 2 year old, I’d be booking sunset sessions every night I could! The night started with C’s senior portrait session. She’s a senior at Sutton High School in Massachusetts, a fantastic athlete, and as you can see, a gorgeous girl! She was up for anything and her friend even helped hold my reflector for me :0) Thanks N! I wish I had time to do more senior sessions because they really listen SO much better than toddlers! Enjoy your preview C
Next up was a family who I just recently had in for their newborn session. Adorable baby O is already 4 months old and they were ready for a session on the beach! I can’t believe how fast these babies are growing up around us! Baby O was so sweet and I loved having the chance to photograph her again and catch up with mom and dad. Because these were mini sessions, I was going to try to limit the previews to just one or two images, but even with just 30 minutes to shoot, I have too many favorites to choose!! Enjoy your preview!
Finally at sunset I wrapped up with an engagement session for a very fun couple. J and C will be getting married this winter in Mexico and I was thrilled to have the chance to do their engagement session on the beach. They were so easy going and playful, we have so many shots to choose from! Enjoy your preview!
I had the pleasure of photographing two sets of twins last week, but C and N were far from sleepy like the last set! We decided to head to the park because toddlers generally do better when they have some room to run around. The boys were hard to tell apart by looking at them, but they definitely had individual personalities! One loved sitting in the grass while the other loved to run around the park. They did share a love of books which turned out to be the easiest way to get them into the same frame! Mom said they had very few pictures of the two boys together so I selected a few of those for the preview. Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad. Enjoy!
Last week was a busy one so I have many previews I am thrilled to share with you this week! The first is baby C who came in for his one year old portraits. It was a gorgeous day so we headed to the park where I was able to try out my new 85mm lens! C was a perfect first model. He was full of smiles and loved the camera. His big blue eyes just jump out of every shot. People often ask how I get my subject’s eyes so sharp. The NUMBER ONE most important thing to do is nail the focus point. You HAVE to lock your focus on the eyes for them to be nice and sharp in the final image. Yup. It’s that simple! Well almost. Of course other factors contribute to overall image sharpness…. like: ISO, lens quality, proper exposure, shutter speed, and depth of field…. but we’ll get to those another day :0) I have a few ways to rescue the eyes if I’ve missed the focus point (which you can learn all about in my post processing workshop… more dates to be released soon!). Okay, enough technical mumbo jumbo… even though C’s dad is a camera geek too! Enjoy your preview!
You may recognize this smiley little girl. She was in for her 3 month appointment just a few months ago and was back last week for her 6 month shoot. 6 months is one of my very favorite ages to shoot and baby R made my job even more fun. She was full of smiles and loved the camera. She even liked my singing! Enjoy your preview mom and dad.
Remember this little peanut?
She just turned one year old!
Here she is playing with the very same bowl!:
Baby J was so much fun to photograph this week. She was full of smiles and her big blue eyes made every frame a keeper! Love those two front teeth in the last shot. My daughter was still bald at this age but baby J has a full head of gorgeous hair! She loved running all over the studio and I loved chasing her :0) Enjoy your preview S family!
Last week my family took our first week off since beginning this business. While it was a much needed break from the photography business, I did break out the camera once or twice for a few summer photos on the beach. We spent one afternoon on the beach with Kerri from Sweet Indulgence and her family and let the kids dig into some tasty treats! I may have broken a lens and lost my blackberry during our travels, but overall our time off was nothing but fun! Enjoy your preview Kerri :0)
I have had the pleasure of photographing this family since last fall for mom’s maternity session and each new session is a new favorite of mine! These two girls were so much fun to photograph once again. We had an evening portrait session, which can sometimes be a bewitching hour for babies, but 6 month old baby L was full of smiles and completely adorable. M was such a great big sister, smiling for the camera and holding her baby sister up. Thank you for such a great session A family! Enjoy your preview.
Any parent of toddlers knows how hard it can be to get a decent portrait of young siblings. That’s why I always have a bag full of tricks for toddler sessions! I know how hard my 2 year old daughter can be, never mind when you double or triple the toddler factor! I had so much fun chasing after these two at the park last week and am happy to report we ended up with some wonderful portraits that reflect the fun of this age. The second image below is actually an out-take of a family shot that made me smile so much I had to include it. From bubbles to flowers we kept the fun going at the park. Enjoy your preview M family!
Baby C may be turning one, but I am happy to say that I will still be seeing more of this family this year. Mom already has baby number 2 on the way! Baby C had a wonderful 1st birthday session. She was much like my daughter at this age… wanting only to be in mommy’s arms. I must say that some of my favorite shots from the session were taken just there. I adore the portraits of her and mom together. C loved being outside so I think some of our best stuff was in the park. I can’t wait to show you the rest! Enjoy your preview!
