I had a session rained out today (and our plans were more of the picnic-in-the-sun-wearing-white variety), so I took advantage of the free time to show off the fun that rainy day session can be. Of course, appropriate attire is a must– I have seen some super cute raincoats and galoshes!
The threenager had a good time in the puddles, but wasn’t so keen on the photo shoot part. She must have not gotten the memo that all the other kids I meet adore having me take their picture.

This little sweetie is so beautiful. But she does not like sleeping, so mama and I worked hard for a few blissful minutes of baby posing. However, when she did sleep, she was a champion poser for me! Congratulations W Family! She is just wonderful!

What a beautiful day yesterday was! My son loved showing off his first real word (cheese!) and my daughter just wanted to pretend she was a Top Model. This was between ugly cheesy model grins she learned from “Good Luck, Charlie” haha. And my son was ever the mommy’s little helper–18% grey cards make an excellent prop.
**That card is something I use to help ensure your portraits are always the right colors and the right brightness. I may get a little creative with edits sometimes, but I want your skin to look human!
Also, PLEASE send in your photos, so you can win a free session with me! I know you guys want a free file too!
And check out the model call under the Promotions tab. You may qualify to just hang out with me and get some free pics out of it!

And I am in love with it.
These were all taken with my Nikon F100 with Kodak Portra 400 VC and Fuji 800z. Developed by Richard Lab in LA and scanned by me. (I should have let Richard do that too!)
Imagine what I could do with fresh film, my sharper lenses and a proper light meter! I am so energized to shoot!

I skipped day 23 because was just finding and posting an old Facebook photo. I want to *TAKE* pictures.
This is a picture of Archie and I in the place that we first met–our bed. I had Delilah on the floor next to the bed two years earlier.

It was so cold out that day, but this session was still a dream. These little girls were never quite happy at the same time, but I still got some delightful moments with both of them. I loved the textures and bright colors they were wearing, and mama even brought a gorgeous quilt. I am on a search for one like it for me!
A cold photo shoot is never quite comfortable, but it is also amazing because the moments you capture while kids snuggle up to their parents trying to get warm are simply magical.

I printed Archie’s cake smash storyboard on a beveled gallery mount. The photo is sealed with laminate to wood. And it’s ready to hang!
I think they look amazing with storyboards and will be adding them to the store as an upgrade from the styrene mounted storyboards.

I chose the one time to try a portrait with Archie that he *didn’t* want to nurse! So here I am forcing him to sit with me for one second…(1/200 of a second). I thought I would get a beautiful nursing portrait. HA.
Oh well, he is still super cute.

I am not the smile-sensuously-at-the-camera-while-blowing-a-smoldering-kiss-to-my-man type. I also have a lady ‘stache and need to get to the salon soon. So, I decided to fishy kiss him while thinking, “come home and save me!”
He got me a remote (again) for Valentine’s Day and the kids were all about
posing running to the LCD screen every time they heard the shudder.
and the out takes– trying to get my kids to kiss me.
