I’m loving this time of year! The weather is getting warmer and the flowers are out. It’s so beautiful when things first green up! I’m in the thick of high school senior rep photo shoots and loving it! Just a few more weeks and I head to Alaska. I can’t wait to photograph up there! For my Friday post here is a beautiful family that I adore. We got in a few good shots before it started to POUR on us. They had to head back home and live out of state so we didn’t get to do a full shoot but we will reconvene again this summer to complete!

My tip for today is personal. I may have said it before but it soooo worth repeating. I have very few pictures with me in them with my family. Every time my mom comes to town I get a few precious photos with me in them. I don’t look perfect in this photo but as I always tell my clients and myself, it’s not for me. These photos I will look back on with love in remembering the wonderful time we had and the precious expressions of my children but most importantly my children will look back. When they do I want them to see their Mom. I want them to know me when I was young and they were young. I want them to have this photographic memory. Don’t use the excuse that you are losing weight, or you don’t take good pictures, or, or, or….suck it in, suck it up and get in those photos!
I’m so excited for this weekend. There are so many great things happening. Pictures. Pictures. Pictures. That’s what I call heaven. I have someone that I promised one more sneak peak yesterday and didn’t get it up. Ahhhhh! I hate not keeping my promises. So here’s is her official sneak peak…now now more until the official unveiling! Ain’t she beautiful!!!!
This is really cool! It’s a camera simulator that can help us to understand how changing the settings on our cameras effect the outcome of the photo. Check it out!
This website cracks me up. Need a good laugh, check it out.
I’m looking for some feedback. What are you learning from Tuesday tip day? What would you like to learn? What questions do you have or what mistakes do you keep making with your photos? Do you want to know how I achieved a certain look or how I made a particular shot? Would you like to see more before and after edits?
Thank you so much for all your support!!
I had the amazing privilege to photograph this family shortly after Daddy returned from war. The love and pure happiness was seeping from the whole family because Daddy was home. We had so much fun at this shoot. We chased chickens, took some pictures, chased some more chickens, and took some pictures while chasing chickens. The kids were covered in hay in the end but I think they were happy. Oh and there might have been some brightly colored paper airplanes!
I truly believe the sunshine we had during this session was the Lord shining down on this amazing family!
It’s always a little hard to blog while I’m out of town. I wanted to give you a quick tip for the week though. It’s tough because as I’ve been photographing in different environments while away from home I have a ton of things floating around in my head. I chose this from a family photo session at the farm in Argyle, NY just before I left. The tip is, it doesn’t always take a smile to make a photograph to treasure!
