What I do for Fun

Some photographers take time away to take pictures of landscapes, flowers, etc.  I just can't get away from taking pictures of people.  Test driving the D700 this weekend, I wanted to play with real, cute subjects without any pressure.  So I borrowed these twins and their gorgeous front porch and we had fun, fun, fun for part of this morning.

They, in their darling 2 year-old language, said "We need our arms around each other!"

When I suggested kissing, here's what they came up with.

They started to get curious about this humongous camera I was following them around with.

"My turn to see it!" says the brother.

I'm a little bit in love with this front door, and just might copy it someday when I get a house of my own.

Let's try this again, eh?

My worst nightmare came true, and I deleted this shoot from my memory card before it was uploaded.  I know, five years of doing this and you think I'd know better, right?

I'm so glad it wasn't a wedding.  Software can usually recover these things, but for some reason, not this time.

Rest assured, I learned my lesson.  Never again.

Aaron and Katie were so good to humor me and repeat the session, same time, same place, same clothing, one week later. *Which* all ended up being a good thing, because little Miss Em was a bazillion times happier in the second shoot, so it's a win-win for all involved!

Sam & Co.

You would never guess that this shoot took place on the coldest, windy-est day of the year thus far, and we had the whole thing accomplished in less than 30 minutes.  I drove home, my fingers slowly regaining life, thinking about what a great catalyst cold weather is for quick photo shoots.  And I'm thrilled!  I'm thrilled at what beautiful photos this gorgeous family created.

Fall Mini Shoot

Quick and easy, which is always a bonus when you've got three kids to juggle - and they were great!  This has become one of my new favorite spots, and their darling family made it all the better.

Fall Family Fun

Remember Eric & Brittany's engagements [see here]?  It was so much fun to see what they've been up to in their first married year and meet the whole family!

Below are two different pictures, taken at different times,  to be made in to bookends.  (Yes, I'm pretty impressed with myself about how much it could look like one picture.)

These boys had me laughing while I shot, whenever I thought about this shoot, and the whole time I edited.
