Family Holiday mini sessions

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

It has already been a busy season so blogging and facebooking have taken a backseat to Halloween costumes, family fun and holiday family mini shoots.  I did  want to share a few shots from two family mini shoots.  More to come later.  Thank you to both of these families.  I had a great time in Balboa park with you!!

Highlights from Florida

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

We had such a great trip to Florida despite the HEAT.  “It’s not the heat…it’s the humidity”……..really???  It is the heat too I believe.  Anyway we spent a lot of time on my parents dock as you will see, and the beach.  I got to see friends and work with another photographer friend of mine, Kelly Hite.  She is great and I got to accompany her on a photo shoot.  Her website is Pure Sugar Studios in Jacksonville.

Here are some of my favorites

5 month and 4 year old cuties

I have been in Florida for the last week on vacation and working a little.  Christal my roommate and sorority sister from college had a baby a few months ago and I hadn’t met her yet.  Her adorable little boy is 4 and I hadn’t seen him in 2 years.  I decided to make a trip to Orlando where Christal runs two wedding planning companies http://www.sunsationalweddingsorlando.com/ and http://www.orlandoweddinggroup.com/ .  We had lunch and I got to take some fun shots of her cuties.

Photo Tip #5 Follow Quietly

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

This tip is for parents that really want photos of their kids BEING kids.  The key here is patience but it will pay off.  You will not get natural happy playful child like emotions captured in a photo if you constantly talk and chit chat and ask the child to look up and smile.  Simply follow them quietly for awhile.  I promise you that they will look up right at you often to see if you are there and to make sure that you are looking at them.  This is especially true for the little ones.  There is no need to call their name, just be patient and you will get to watch (and photo) all the wonderment that goes a long with exploring.  I enjoyed watching this little one explore the other day.
