I absolutely adore dogs! They love you no matter what, they will protect you, comfort you, and make you laugh!
This session was so fun! Sweetest family! I have to say that I LOVE the colors they chose for their outfits! These colors photograph so well when we do a setting that has greenery behind you.
I love how their colors go together so well but don’t match each other exactly.
I have to add, the cute little boy smiled for cookies! Lol. It was a great tradeoff
These first birthday pictures were right in their yard! The beauty of photography is that we can get amazing pictures anywhere! I love the challenge to find the right corner or wall, the right set of flowers or artwork to shoot by. The guy was not interested in smashing into his cake but the cats sure wanted to help!
I love hearing stories about kiddos that love something and they begin a career in adulthood with their childhood passion! It is refreshing and rewarding!
She has always loved animals and has quite a few right now! She is going to school for a job that will keep her working with animals. That is a recipe for loving your job and make work fulfilling!
This year has been been so beautiful watching so many mommas get all teary-eyed when their kiddos slides of that cap and gown and their senior session. It somehow marks that next phase in life. That next step. Their baby is growing up!
I caught one mommas reaction when I got her baby taking her first steps AT OUR PHOTO SESSION!!
I have so many sweet moments where the parents are just beaming with pride and it is so beautiful ❤
I got to take this awesome 17 year olds birthday pictures!! There is something so classic about a black dress! It looks great with any backdrop and it always just looks good!
I am a creature of habit. I go to the park I like, do the sessions in the spot that I like, and I go home.
I did my daughter and her friends pictures at the same park. Her friend is adventurous, way more than I am, and we ventured down a path that I have never explored! I do not know why it took a 17 year old kid to give me courage to take a path never travelled.
I think it is just a lovely little spot! I did not see any signs about it being private property or anything so we explored for a bit! Lots of green grass, trees, and water! Not the prettiest water, but water nonetheless. Probably a few snakes too…….
My point in all of this is that I reminded myself that I need to scout out more locations because this whole new look has always been at the same ole park that I have gone to weekly for 2 years!
Birthday shoots are not just for 1 year olds! I think every birthday should be celebrated with pictures!
You ARE gorgeous! You CAN have fun! We WILL get some amazing images!
I love that hour before the sun dips below the horizon. That last glimmer of day before night befalls us. The warm sun hugs you with light soft and dreamy.
The benefits of golden hour are many. The warm light and soft shadows are the biggest sellers for me.
I am LOVING one of the current updates on Photoshop CC. The sky replacement feature does not work for every image but it can be AWESOME!
I am also loving the “select subject” tool. It does a pretty good job of just selecting the subject for me! I have never learned the tricks to doing that effectively.
