I finally got my wish last week.  We got nice weather- 3 whole days of it!!!  I had 2 client shoots lined up, but decided to take the 3rd day to get my little munchkins out and do their pictures.  Since both their birthdays are in the winter we usually have to wait until spring to get their pictures done.  I had it all planned out in my head, but reminded myself as with all child shoots that you have to work with them, even if they’re your own kids.

My husband had been set on a mission a couple months ago to find me a pink guitar, and man did he ever pull through!  Aubrey LOVES music, loves to dance, and sing, so I wanted to capture that part of her personality in her pictures.  As I snapped away she serenaded us with the Dora theme song, Little Mermaid, and her other current favorite song- Colbie Caillat’s “I Do”.

The other part of the shoot was all about the Lollis!  I love the bright colors and nothing can make my kids happier than a giant candy.  =)  It took some serious willpower on their parts not to immediately start chomping into them right away.  They complied and let me get in a couple shots before we gave them the okay to take a bite. ;)

6 Reasons to Have Your Session in June-

*  You’ll be entered to win a free friend session.  The friend session is good for up to 4 friends to hang out for 2 hours.  I’m just along for the ride to capture who you all are.  You will also receive a disc with your images for you all to share!  A $600 value!

*  With a qualifying purchase you’re going to earn free product!

*  The weather is generally cooler.  Making it a lot more enjoyable to wear those sweaters, leggings, and boots.  Plus, it is warm enough for fun summer clothes too.

*  Everything is green still.  By July and August everything starts drying out.  This is a huge liability if you want pictures in the field, especially if you’re a blonde.

*  You’ll have your pick in your location selections.  I try to limit the number of Seniors I take to different locations per school, so you end up with unique locations and not just like everyone else.

*  More time to pick your yearbook photo!

Hooray! I managed to fit in another week participating in the Bloom 52 group! This week’s theme was “selective focus”. What might you ask does this mean? Well, here is how I interpreted it… I had a choice when I shot this image of my cutie. I could have both her and her lolli in focus (and trust me I got lots of those too!;)) or I could creatively interpret what I saw. So with this theme in mind I shot the frame so that the lolli was in focus with her peeking out behind it, slightly out of focus. This technique is used a lot when you want to capture a whole scene, but really want the weight and attention brought to one subject. Next time you watch a tv show if you’re aware you’ll see it all the time! I have started to enjoy and appreciate the art of cinematography so much more in the last few years as I’ve noticed so many of the same principals applied in their field that apply in photography.
Anywhoo… just a my nerdy teacher side coming out. =)

We finally got some nice weather the last few days, and I didn’t have any clients to shoot so I was actually able to take my own kiddos out for a little session of their own. We got lots of fun shots, both pre-lolli and with the lollis! So happy! I’ll be sure to share more later! But for now, here is my selective focus image.

So by now you know the drill… our group has created a circle by clicking the links it will take you all the way around the circle.  Up next is Lynne Demaray, Iowe’s Lifestyle Photographer.
