Below is our second Christmas card we shot. This time from 2012. Loved this Christmas card idea. And it was the year our puppy made her debut!
Here's a look at our first Christmas card from 2011.
Yes. I've started listening to Christmas music already. Yes. I'll be starting to decorate the house this weekend. And yes. I've already got the idea for this year's family Christmas card sketched out in my head. In fact, we'll be shooting it this Sunday! So, for this week and the next three weeks after, I'll be posting the family Christmas cards we done in the past. The card below, is the very first Christmas card we made and was made in 2011.
I'll be posting our 2012 card next Wednesday!
It's Favorite Photo Friday time! Senior sessions are some of my most favorite sessions. And this one is no exception. We made a lot of great images during this session. And the one above is one of the many favorites that we made during this photo shoot. Loved everything about this one from the senior himself, to his family and the location as well.
Happy Friday everyone!
It's Friday!!! And that means...
It's Favorite Photo Friday!
From the outfit, to the location, to the attitude... I love everything about this image. The entire session was a blast. And the family is amazing... making this one of my favorite photos!
This has become one of my favorite photos of 2015. And it's a shot that almost didn't happen. We had been watching the weather all week leading up to the photo shoot. And I must have hit refresh a hundred times to check on the weather the day of. But the weather seemed like it was going to break an hour and a half before the shoot. So we decided to give it a go.
As we were walking from their house to the beach there wasn't a drop of rain falling. And boom, the minute the camera comes out and we start shooting... the rain started to sprinkle. And that meant two things...
1. No time to take time to connect with the one year old little girl.
Luckily, the one year old little girl and her mom and dad were so relaxed and easy going. It also helped that her aunt came along on the photo shoot which the little girl loved making for some great photographs.
2. If we were going to get any of the session in, we had to quickly shoot through each set up.
Once it started to sprinkle, it didn't stop. In fact, it started to sprinkle harder. Again, the family was great. Super relaxed. Super go-with-the-flow. But even with these amazing people, you have to know your camera and settings because there was simply no time to "take the time to get your camera settings down." It was a get the camera and go photo shoot. In all, I think we only had about 15 to 20 minutes to get all of the shots completed. And you know what, it was a blast. The location was amazing. And we made some amazing photographs!
It's Friday, and you know what that means...
Favorite Photo Friday!
This shot is a favorite of mine for many different reasons. This whole shoot is actually one of my favorites.
The family is awesome for one. The dress above is vintage... 100 years old I believe. And the girl in the photo was up for anything to get a great shot.
The whole shoot was a blast and I loved every image we got.
This is the third installment in this series. If you've missed the first two, you can catch the first one here... First Photo Friday and the second one here... Second Photo Friday.
I shot this frame at a wedding in between some group shots as they were being set up. As I was waiting, I turned around and happened to see this scene unfolding. Completely candid. Not posed.
There are many reasons why I love this photo. The colors are awesome. From the red dresses against the green plant life. To the way their eyes pop. The head bands they are wearing to the looks on their faces.
And to top it off, the two bridesmaids above were great to work with...
All the reasons above make this one of my favorite photos I've photographed.
This blog post marks the second installment of my Favorite Photo Friday. If you missed the first one, you can find it here... First Favorite Photo Friday.
I photographed this bride and her groom a few years ago. The groom is actually part of our Armed Forces and one of the nicest guys you'll meet. They've also added a cute little girl since they got married.
Just prior to this photo, she and I had just gotten through talking about the necklace she had just put on. I was about to leave to go photograph the groom for a bit when I stopped and called her name. This is the frame I captured just after she had turned around.
I love this photo.
It's simple. Clean. And totally not posed at all.
It's an authentic moment captured as it happened.
