I talked Liz in to coming over this afternoon so I could practice with whatever light might be available, and purposely didn't check the weather.  Sometimes bright, hazy/white winter sunshine is trickier than you would think, so it was good practice for me.   Thanks, Liz!

What I've been up to

Maybe it's just the slow season, but I've got photography on the brain and I'm itching to take beautiful photos.  Preferably in summer light, which won't happen for at least 4 months.  In the meantime, I'm putting that energy toward updating things like my web page - www.alainasdigitaldarkroom.com - and my tabs across the top up there.

Gathering up my favorite photos from the last couple of years has been downright exciting.  You can see some of the best of the best along the Portfolio tab up top.  I like seeing them all in one place.

I also forgot about this little beauty, and finding it made my night.  Happy January!

Happy Birthday Henry

While babysitting my only nephew yesterday, I pulled off a quick (and surprise) photo shoot.  Happy Birthday, Baby!
I am rather impressed with myself given that I had 3-kids-against-1 and not a single adult to help me keep the attention of this high energy 1 year old.  Here's the best I could do, and there are dozens of others on disc for his parents to remember his many facial expressions.  So glad to be your Aunt, Henry Rex!

If this face doesn't make you melt, well, you are beyond hope.  My heart strings felt a little tug every single time it came up in editing.

And Baby Makes Three

Jeremy and Cindy had a fabulous winter wedding last year (see herehere and here), and I was overjoyed to celebrate their new family with pictures to ring in the new year and new baby Easton!  He is a doll, and I was delighted to see his eyes wide with curiosity toward the end of the shoot (once we escaped the cold to my living-room-makeshift-studio.)  Congratulations to this beautiful family!
