Archive for December, 2009

I had the good fortune to photograph this beautiful family over the holidays. We chose a painted wall in their dining room with great light to focus on what’s important – the joy in their faces and being together. We also used a beautiful blue door as a background for the children’s smiles. I love black and white photos, but I also like color when there is something special about the color. So I show two photos here – one family photo in b&w and the children in color – two different ways to view and display your family’s photos. As this is the last day of 2009 ~  I wish all of you a Happy New Year and look forward to 2010!

Handsome Senior

I enjoyed photographing this handsome senior with a beautiful smile. His mother wanted me to photograph him in the garden for natural style photos ~ to complement his school senior photos. We picked the late afternoon for great light and even in midwinter, the garden looked lovely. Thank you for a fun afternoon and here are some sneak peeks from our photo session.

A Beautiful Family

I had the pleasure and honor of photographing this beautiful family earlier this week. Mom and I have become good friends this past year, and our children enjoy being together. I loved this park – lots of stone walls, a gazebo and places for the children to run and climb. The morning brought fog, but by the time we photographed in the afternoon, the fog had lifted and there was a soft glow all around ~ very flattering for portraits. Thank you for a fun afternoon and for the chance to photograph your lovely family. And here are some sneak peeks from our afternoon in the park.
