Sugar and Spice/Indiana Portrait Photographer

To me, these are everything nice about girls. 🙂

There is much I would love to say about these images…the words are rolling around but I’m not sure that words will do justice to what I feel. Two of these girls are mine, the other girl is my niece. Last Sunday “B” came over to hang out after church and to play around with my new backdrops. Besides my girls, “B” is my most often photographed girl.

I wanted to photograph in natural light so I could really create a blurred background using a low aperture, but it just got too late in the day for that. So, I brought up my studio lights and set it up in my kitchen. I’m sure my neighbors must wonder what goes on in my house with all the lights flashing all the time. 🙂 We got some funny outtakes, but we also got some good serious ones.

I just love texture…I just can’t help myself.

The above picture shows the backdrop stand…but I don’t care. This is real and it shows her with one of her most treasured possession…her blankie. That blanket is showing severe signs of wear and tear so I was glad to get a few pictures of her with it.

Studio session/Indiana Portrait Photographer

Monday, I went to Hobby Lobby to check out their fabric to use for my sessions. I seriously love this store. Their customer service is awesome and their prices aren’t bad either. Anyway, my friend and I had talked about getting some damask looking fabric to add to our backdrops. We looked at several sites and found some that were fairly inexpensive. One of our worries is that it would wrinkle and we definitely didn’t want it to wrinkle. I found exactly what I was looking for in Terre Haute. I bought 3 yds and it is 54 inches wide. I really love the look of it, don’t you?

I used my nearest models to test this out and I love the results. I can’t wait to use it for the session I have today.
