Field Day :)!

I had a wonderful opportunity to go shooting with a fellow photographer Shay, and her adorable kids. She took some AMAZING pictures of my boys that I will cherish forever. I was able to snap a couple of her kids as well. It was so neat to watch another photographer work, and I hope we are able to do it again real soon :)!

I really love how this one turned out :)!

Catching bugs :)!

A Perfect Example!!

Mr. and Mrs. L are the perfect example of holding a pose despite what is going on around them :)!! They and I have learned from experience that a lot of times it is better for parents to smile and hold their pose and let me get the attention of the kids. This allows me to focus on the kids, and I know Mom and Dad are going to look great in pretty much every frame.

Now if we can just get that finger out of the nose :)!!

Click, we got it!!

A Field of Flowers :)!!

Last week I was able to spend the evening with the sweetest family. They have four beautiful children who were filled with tons of fun energy. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Let me also say that I had a BLAST shooting this couple. The light loves Mrs. "A", and I don't think she could take a bad picture if she tried :)!! Thanks again "L" family it was truly a pleasure :)!!

Seriously, look at how the light just glows off of her :)!! Stunning :)!!

I think this might be one of my favorites from the session!!

My Backlight Family :)!!

I have been wanting to work on this for a while now, and I finally got up the courage to try :)! I find back lighting very intimidating to shoot in, and decided it was time to face that fear and start shooting into the sun, and what better test subjects than my own family. I can see why so many amazing photographers LOVE back lighting their clients, I just love the way the light wraps around my beautiful little family.

Thanks you guys for letting me practice on you :)!!

Lately I have been working on shooting in more difficult types of light. As of now I have been practicing on the weeds in my back yard, but I am hoping to graduate to people soon :)!!
