Spring Session Fun/Indiana Teen Photographer

I did this session on Sunday just as the sun was setting. I really love photographing pretty young ladies in the evening sun. There is just something so nice about these images. These two are cousins and I really love to watch these two together. There is so much love, laughter and a lot of fun when they are together. The taller one is my niece and the younger one is my daughter. 🙂

Winter Session/Indiana High School Photographer

“B” contacted me at the end of fall wanting to have some pictures in the snow. I couldn’t wait for enough snow to fall to schedule her session. On Saturday, we finally had enough snow to make some amazing photographs. We didn’t take as many as I usually do as it was really cold, like around 7 degrees.

I am so very pleased with how they came out.

Here is “B” with her friend “J”. You may remember “J” from the session that I did with here. You can see that here https://julielawsonphotography.wordpress.com/2009/11/05/jessica2010-s-v-h-s-seniorindiana-high-school-senior-photographer/

“J” is also wearing some scarves that were made for my by a very talented lady. You can view your FB page by going here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Clinton-IN/Julie-Lawson-Photography/130867719377?v=info&viewas=1399372466#/pages/Yarnin-To-Please/241234215880

Testing new Reflector 5-in-one

I went to my local camera store yesterday evening and bought a 41 inch reflector. It has white,gold,silver,sunkissed?, and transluscent. I really wanted this for a couple of reasons. The main reason is because I’ll be shooting some wedding portraits next weekend at or around noon. I needed something that would block the harsh overhead sun, yet allow some light through. The second reason I wanted to get this bigger one is because while I had a reflector already, it just wasn’t big enough. It seriously would only shade a clients face. It really was only useful for reflecting light into the face only. I couldn’t believe how big this thing is.

I took my camera and the reflector to my sisters house to test out my new toy. Her daughter and friend were more than willing to help me out. When I took the first image I was blown away! I sat them in full sun, I mean, that sun was blazing in their faces. Then I asked my niece to sit in the shade and had her friend hold the reflector using the sunkissed side. I’ll have to practice a little more using those.
