I did her photoshoot a few weeks ago, before I left for my trip to Colorado. So I’m super excited to finally be able to share some of them with you today (a few more coming tomorrow )
The photoshoot was almost canceled because she had been grumpy in the morning before I got there, but I’m glad her Mom didn’t cancel – because Naemi did really well! She was awake for the beginning but after a while got used to being in front of the camera (or got bored?) and nicely fell asleep for the end.
Ah, don’t you just want to smooch those little cheeks?!
Thanks for being a good sport Naemi! (not that you had a choice, but I do appreciate it!)
It’s been a little while since I posted a black and white picture – enjoy! This is more on the artistic side of things, and I like this image – a lot. It was taken while I was in Colorado a few weeks ago.
My trip to Colorado in April inspired me in many ways. One of those was in using my flash more in my photography. So earlier this week, I decided to just get out there and play with it. Thankfully Boo was willing to be my model.
I enjoyed it Purposely, I chose to do it in the bright afternoon sun. Why? Because the conditions were NOT exactly ideal…and because they never are when we want them too. I wanted to play with them in a less-than-ideal-situation partly because if we always sit around waiting for the perfect picture taking situation to happen… we’d wouldn’t get many pictures taken!
(the book and pen were her choice – not mine! I was just glad she was letting me snap her picture ) Good chance to play with rim lighting.
I think this is my favourite picture of the afternoon. It’s something about her expression, I can’t explain it. Almost as if there’s a hint of the woman she’s going to grow up into. One of those “catching a moment” pictures
P.s. Note to self: If you’re planning to play with your flashes…it might not be the best idea to a get a five year old who doesn’t usually sit still anyways…to be your model.
I think this happens every year around this time… you know, when spring is finally here to stay, when you can smell it in the air. When everything is fresh and green, these couple of weeks while even the hillsides are green before summer heat turns them brown. It’s right about now…that I miss England, and wish I could visit again. Wish I could be sitting on that bench right now, with a book in hand.
See why I miss it? Just this morning I was paging through last’s year’s 30 days in England feature when I blogged about England every day…ah all those lovely memories came rushing back. So I decided to share a couple more England pictures today.
Wherever you are today… I hope the sun is shining!
They’ve been on my list for awhile (dare I say years?). So I’m kind of excited I found a pair of normal black high top converse all stars. The best part? I (apparently) fit into a boys size five so I only paid $20
So, now that I finally own a pair… I’m open to suggestions.
Do you wear All Stars? What do you pair them with? Ever wear them with dresses/skirts? With skinny jeans? What’s you’re favourite All Stars + _____ combo?
I can’t believe my last post was April 11 – yikes! It wasn’t planned that way…but life just kind of happened and is still happening! I’ve been busy…busy as in I’ve been gone (still am technically) and have only been home for one weekend in April.
March just kind of ran into April and now April is almost over…!?
But I’m back (to blogging), and I’m here, and I’m planning (hoping!) that I can get back into blogging consistently again!
The kissing camels in the Garden of the Gods
I’m just coming to the end of a lovely little holiday…I spent the last week in Colorado interning with IPS, the photography group I’ve taken courses with in the past. (You might remember all those blog posts about lighting from back in September ending with Devon’s portrait shoot in Garden of the Gods!)
Now I’m spending a couple days here in Portland with my photographer friend, Ashley and her family. (Check out Ashley’s blog HERE!)
We went for a walk this morning… it’s been raining. And I loved it…because all the green – and the slight wetness – reminded me of England.
Enjoy your day – I most certainly am!
