You can all just imagine what I thought when this stunning family pulled up in a shiny blue '69 Chevelle...WOWZERS!!!! I had spoken in a previous blog post about my style and a family's vibe in pictures. Here is another great example about a family bringing their own personality to the shoot and in this case their 4th family member...the coveted car.
We shot for over 2 hours frolicking in the flowers and walking down gravel paths. But I would say the most challenging and nerve wracking part of the shoot was photographing the car. Dad had a vision in his head of how this "baby" was to look in it's pictures. I sure hope I did it justice!! By the end I had him placing me in the exact angle to which the car looked best for the shot. What a HOOT!!!
We all had a fantastic time. A most memorable shoot.

A sunny Sunday in July. What is that you say?! One of the rare days this summer when we could all be outside minus a sweater. Our adorable neice and nephew...both quite curious about their aunt who now is a photographer. Doesn't get better than this at their age...hanging with your cousins, playing in the backyard and climbing a tree.
Love to you both!

Welcome back to this beautiful and sweet family!! I absolutely LOVE these little ones - it's easy to see why. I had a photoshoot with this fam a few months back. The oldest (little) one called me "Henry" the whole time. I thought this was hilarious and will never forget it! She has my name correct now and has a real love for the camera both in front and behind. Perhaps she will be a photographer someday?!

When I first set eyes upon this family at the door all I could think was WOW and instant excitement set in! This beautiful family was great to work with. I have learned by now that atleast one of the children at every shoot will have a "moment" but in the end the photos will look like they loved every minute of it!!
I am simply amazed at everything I am learning about being in a family photography business. I am not talking about the buttons on the camera...but about the people I photograph. Each family is so unique. Each family brings their own style and vibe. Photographers, in their forums talk endlessly about their "style" of photography. Somedays I think I see mine emerging. But sometimes it really is about the family's style and not so much mine. It should be obvious by now that though that I am a sucker for a really tight close up. Those eyes, that skin, those lashes those cute button noses!!
Of course I love photography and I love to take photos of people. But what I have discovered is that my business really is people. I just happen to have a camera in my hand to watch them through.
