It’s been FOREVER since I posted.  sorry…..

 

Ok – I really encourage everyone to consider a Lifestyle Shoot.  I prefer candids over the basic portrait shots, but lifestyle is so fun and an extremely special treasure to keep forever.  Documenting your little ones, or family in your environment, doing what you do every day and/or what you really enjoy doing.  It take s special person to really appreciate how special this kind of shoot is.

 

Mom just loved it.

 

Dad thought it was funny that we did a shoot ‘in the playroom, in her pj’s?’.  hahaha

 

So when I first got there, she wasn’t sure what to think of me.

Oh, but she became comfortable very quickly…

Pretty Light, Pretty Girl – Not so pretty location – but that’s ok.  Mom was astonished b/c this location had a ton of trash around and some parts was off a street (not a busy street!).  Us photographers have plenty of secrets.  lol.  It’s difficult to find great locations in Texas without bumping into a ton of other photographers.  I’ve learned just use the light so location doesn’t have to matter quite as much.

This shoot and most of this editing was therapy for me – This girl is such a natural and I LOVE using her as a model and impromptu photo shoots –

I tend to just let the kids be themselves and go.  My camera is pretty fast, I’ll just catch what I catch.  Authenticity can be very artistic! 🙂

 

Oh – and for 2013 – I’m changing up my editing…. Hope you enjoy.  🙂

  • janet bailey - Thanks so much for your support of my first blog post, Mary! : )
    Your work is lovely! Your post processing has such a nice soft treatment, and these photos of the little on in the washtub are adorable!

I’ve known this sweet happy family for a few years now.  My older son is a very good friend of their youngest son.  Even though they go to different schools, the boys see each other once a week at our house or their house.   Such sweet fun kiddos – and I heart their parents too!

Got the boys these outfits for my sister’s wedding this past Spring.  We really have not other event to wear them too and they started to collect dust in the closet.  Before they outgrew them, I wanted at least one photoshoot with these outfits on (if anything, for the investment alone!  lol).

I knew they would be getting dirty – that’s ok – we have nowhere else to go where they would be dressed like this!  Good times!
