The “T” Family/Indiana Family Photographer

This family is super nice and their little boy is just a doll. 

I was asked to wait until after Christmas to post any photos. I was so glad to be able to photograph them and I look forward to photographing them in the future. Thank you Garry and Ashley for asking to photograph your family. Little “D” is just so cute!

The “D” Family/Indiana Family Photographer

This is another wonderful family that I had the pleasure to meet up with before Christmas. I have to say, this is the largest group photo that I have taken so far…and I enjoyed every minute of it. One of the families you will recognize as one of my Tiny Blessing families. Little Miss “T”  and “L” are the center of attention when the boys are around. They just love their little girls. The 4 boys’ mom and dad went to High School with me, so I’ve known them for awhile.

I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed taking them.

The “I” Family

I really enjoyed going to Kim’s house to photograph her and her family. This is seriously a beautiful family.

My little Christmas Diva

At the beginning of December, Jen Rinaldi took E’s Christmas pictures. I took some test shots to check out the lights. E decided to wear her little boa and she looked so cute!!

Samara W~Day two~Outdoor session

Samara and I went to beautiful Parke county for our outdoor session. I’m so glad that the weather was nicer than when we did the studio session. It was windy and a little chilly, but the sun was out and it was such a beautiful day.

I could seriously do Senior sessions for the rest of my life. I LOVE hanging out with Seniors, they are so much fun. All the seniors that I photographed are full of fun and are willing to try new things. Samara and I had a lot of laughs. Poor thing probably has thorns in her flag, lol.

For this post, I’m going to try to include some information about the pictures about what I was thinking when I took the shot to maybe help other photographers.

In the image below, it was taken toward the end of our session. There is a field in Parke County with a bunch of old antique and rusty cars. I’ve tried twice to go and get permission to photograph in there, but no one is ever home. So, when we saw this old barn, I told her that we would go by there on our way back to Clinton. When I asked the permission, the guy looked like I had horns growing out of my head. There was a huge dog there too that looked like he could eat us for a snack. LOL When we were walking around the barn, there were two old cars that were so cool.

I always look at the sun to see where it is and how it makes the environment look. I told Samara to face towards it and in this picture, I believe I bumped my ISO up to 800 and used 100% natural light. I think it looks so wonderful.

Samara is in the drill team at High School and I had an image in my mind that I knew that I had to capture. We tried to find a hill where there wouldn’t be any trees in the background. Well, after getting lost briefly we found a hill. I asked her to climb it, only to find out that she had to go through sticker bushes to get to an open area. :o( Sorry Samara. This image came out exactly how I imagined it. I love the way she posed and the way she held the flag. I think it was worth the adventure.

I just love the way the light is hitting her face. So beautiful!

I added a texture to the last one. I asked her, “Is this the look you give your mom?” She said yes! I LOVE it, so full of attitude.

Thanks Samara for an awesome time!! You are so great!

Samara W ~ S.V.H.S. Sneek Peek

I am really starting to love photographing senior’s. I have to admit, at first, kids this age made me nervous. I’m not sure why, but they did. However, the more I work with this age group, the more comfortable I am becoming around them. They are sweet, funny, refreshing. They have big dreams and remind me of a time when I was that age.

Samara is no exception. What a beautiful girl! She was/is my first client using my studio set-up and the images came out so lovely. We did our session in two days because the weather here in Indiana was yucky and cold and because the lighting wasn’t good. So, on Wednesday, we’ll be doing our “urban” shoot in our local town.

Studio portraits

Getting pictures of my oldest is just about as hard as getting pictures of my youngest. I secured a session with another Senior today, which I’m thrilled about. For this Senior’s session, we are going to include a little studio time. Since I’ve yet to do a lot of studio shots and my oldest wanted photos for her facebook, I though I would kill two birds with one stone. On my studio lights, I have colored filters which I used for these. I really love how the red filter made the photographs turn out. I also used blue, but can’t tell as much as I can with the red one.
