A field, a swing, and dog poop.

...All the makings for a fine portrait session.

This morning, Angie(Little Theatre star)came over with some of her friends from out of town, the Warner family, and we had a portrait session in this beautiful area called my front yard. We all had a great time, with the exception of the Dad (Scott), who made it no secret that he did not like this kind of thing. Greg was my "ladder boy," and Nathan slid in dog poop. A great time was had by all!


We actually did have a great time, they are a beautiful family, and I'm so glad we got to meet up with them while they were here!

She is now a tween, time to get ready for it all to hit... I know you hear this so much, but they really do grow so fast. And she wouldn't say yes to a photo shoot, so here's the best I could do. I'm also playing with shadows, so the bike pic turned out kinda cool, don't you think?

Photowalk 2009





This past Saturday I met up with 40 other photographers in downtown Springfield to participate in a "World Wide Photo Walk." There is a website, cities do this all over the world, literally. Prizes can be won, and most of all they want you to download a free trial to Lightroom 2 , which I will do. I've been meaning to try it anyway. so here goes. I did learn a lot, some technical stuff, yes, but mainly ideas. Ahh, those alley's and doorways! Great new ideas for portraits, so I can't wait to experiment!
Of the shots I took, I can honestly say I'm not taken with very many. I guess it's because I love faces. But it was good for me to find shadows, lines, and color. So enjoy these, know there is more coming...

The Fourth




Posted by Picasa

Ahhh, summer. Someone said last week that it's half over now. That's a "glass is half empty" approach to me. Regardless, it's HOT outside, bugbites are a daily nemesis, and kids are unpacking from camp only to get ready for the next adventure. I love this time of year.
