Photo-a-day project: Day 30

Day 30: I got to meet this sweet family, and their little girl was a big fan of my kitten!  You don’t get much cuter than that!

The parents apologized for the lopsided pony tails, but to me, they were perfect. They fit her! Her hair is as full of character as she is. I don’t want to take photos of polished and perfect lives. I want to capture the essence of who you are! I want to portray in a lasting and tangible way that sassy look, the belly laugh that is contagious and gets everyone else in the room going, and that expression that those closest you to love because it’s so “you.” This, to me, is the reason for photography, and this is why I’m here.

Photo-a-day project: Day 22

Day 22 of my photo-a-day project was so much fun! I only had one light to use instead of two, because my kitten knocked one over and broke it, and the replacement light bulb will come from Amazon today, but figuring out all kinds of different lighting situations is a big part of what I’m doing here! I’m comfortable with outdoor natural light, but this is a whole different ballgame!

 

Photo-a-day Project: Day 18

Today is my favorite day of my photo-a-day project so far!! Not only did I get to photograph this cute mama and kiddos, but I also got to play with my indoor lighting setup, AND I got to catch up with an old friend that I haven’t seen in 13 years! Being back in Tucson is proving to be pretty fun for me!

This is my official Day 18 photo, but I couldn’t leave the others out! These kids are absolutely delightful!

Holidays: family time

One of the best things about my family is how much fun my siblings, cousins, and I had together when we were growing up. I absolutely LOVE getting to see all my nieces and nephews following in our footsteps now, and you can bet I’m never far off with my camera. My brother is a photographer as well, and our family hit the jackpot because there is never a shortage of amazing photos of all the kids!

Sullia & family

I have this friend, Sullia. She has been such an encouragement for me since the beginning stages of my photography business, and yesterday she hired me to update the photos I took of her family several years ago. She introduced me to this delightful little park about halfway between her house and mine, where I took that picture of trees through my open car window, and we got to work capturing some family fun! I always love getting to photograph her beautiful family!                

Erin, Sylver, and Skye

This week I had the fantastic fortune to photograph a family in North Carolina! The scenery was beautiful despite the humidity, and the light was probably the most amazing light I have ever experienced during a shoot. I wish I could bottle that light and take it with me every time I shoot!
