Sometimes my job behind the camera is a piece of cake. My clients’ ideas and translate into a creative energy, smiles abound, and it’s almost effortless. Like I said, a piece of cake. If anything, Quanay and her son Ayden made it a slice of 1st birthday cake when we met up for Ayden’s first birthday shoot.
Growing up is hard to do. I have a feeling once Ayden discovers that his birthday celebration includes cake he’s going to be just fine!
Happy first birthday Ayden! Hope it’s full of smiles, fun, and of course… cake!
Spring is in full swing and gusting through Michiana as March is all but gone. Here’s a flashback from Emily’s windy outdoor Senior Portrait Session last April around Beutter Park and Battell Park in Mishawaka, Indiana.
Emily planned a mix of heels to barefoot, jeans to sundress to skirt outfits for her sunny and windy afternoon outdoor shoot. I’m glad to have my subjects involved in the session and I love it when they throw out an idea and I get to make it happen for them. Especially if she was going to walk out on a submerged walkway in cold water or scale a slanted concrete outcropping in heels!
Here are my personal favorites from the shoot. – Enjoy!
What a toasty weekend we shared with Meghan & Jon in Warsaw! Here are a couple of my favorites so far…
This was the perfect summer weekend for sunshine! We started off at the park with Meghan and Jon before all the formal portraits at the church. They withstood the summer heat and came back with some great outdoor photos.
And when you pass friends playing hacky sack in the park, you jump right in! These two tore it up.
Behold the dangers of giving your friends, family and guests bird seed to throw when you make your exit…
I absolutely loved the paper parasols above the checkered dance floor! I don’t know if it was done with the photography in mind but it made for great soft light, excellent textures and patterns, and a unique look throughout the reception. My compliments to the creative forces behind this idea!
