I have just spent this evening preparing a collage and storyboard from this session. We had a lot of special images from this shoot and they go so well together in a collage format. It’s like telling a story with photographs. I was very happy to spend time with this family, such easy going parents and fun kids prefect for a portrait session! OK enough reminiscing, got to get back to the rest of the order preparation!

In luck with the light.

It was a pleasure to meet this young lady recently. I photographed her older sister previously. We had some fantastic evening light for the session in a couple of locations, pure gold light for the golden hour. The golden hour is when there light is at it’s best for photos. Sometimes though the golden hour is a short 15 minutes, depending on the time of year. Often the light is not that golden either. Cooler evenings make the light seem more blue and cold. You just have to go with what nature deals you. We got dealt a very good hand for this particular evening!  I had quite a few favorites from this shoot and it was tough to select for the blog. I wish her the very best for college next year.

This was a session every photographer would rather avoid. Nothing to do with the family who were wonderful. In fact the girl was one of the best almost 3 year old’s I have photographed. The problem was the weather. We were happily working our way through the session when a thunderstorm popped up out of nowhere. We had to relocate to two different locations until we got enough distance from the storm to complete the shoot. All ended well and we have some gorgeous portraits. Thank you to the family for being most accommodating and very relaxed about  the unforeseen circumstances!

Talk Of The Town

I so enjoyed this session although it went on longer than usual. Generally the guys coming in for senior sessions prefer to get the photos over and done with as quickly as possible. With this in mind I suggested that the younger brother come along for some photos as well. They were both so easy going we went through the regular session time and then some too. They were such  good sports for staying until dark. It was also great spending some time with students from my own kids school district and talking about some familiar town/school subjects including sport and band. I was extremely impressed with this high school senior’s commitment to school issues including fundraising for the band.  I am sure he is going to be very successful in his future years.
