Natural Light Children’s Portraits – Happy 1st Birthday Ayden

Mother and Son Outdoor Portraits

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!

Prom Portraits in the Park – Marissa and Quin

Disclaimer: slightly biased, highly proud godfather posting.

Near the end of April I joined my goddaughter Marissa and her prom date / cohort in theatrical crime Quin for portraits before Mishawaka High School’s prom night.

You two looked very snazzy, glad to join you for a silly, fun & rarely serious shoot before your fun night! -eB

Devious didn’t take any convincing or surprise anyone given Marissa’s theatrical repertoire.

Windy Spring Senior Portrait Sessions – Emily

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!

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.

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!
