I just love this pic. This little guy’s dad is a big Star Wars fan. Can you tell?
I love this display. What a fun family this was to photograph. Easy breezy. ;-) They were in town for vacation from the big apply, New York, to introduce their new baby to the grandparents and great grandparents for the first time.
Of course I had to get a few the baby with the new parents, too.
This display would (I feel) do best in a room with at least 9-10 foot ceilings.
This little guy is already 8 Months old now and just growing so fast. I’m lucky that I get to see him every few months to celebrate his milestones in photographs because he is part of the ‘Grow with Me Plan’. If you are interested in this plan, I only take a small number per year, so be sure to inquire as soon as possible to assure availability.
Anyways, back to this adorable family. I literally realized just yesterday that I had neglected to blog these photographs from what seems like ages ago. Like I’ve said before, it’s hard to keep up with it all. I’m just one person. But hey, better late than never. Enjoy.
It was the most lovely weather this day in late January. And the icing on the cake was that I got to meet and photograph this wonderful family!
I struggled for some time to get my black and white processing just as I wanted it. And still, there are some images that take a little more time, but I’ve basically come up with two b&w processing styles that I like to use pretty consistently. One very important tip I can give is that to get a really nice black and white image (post processing, of course) is to first have a properly exposed and color corrected color image. One would like to think that it is easier to process b&w images. I used to think this as well, but now I know that processing a really nice b&w image takes more time because you need to get it right in color first.
I love both the color image and the b&w of this shot. However, I am favoring the b&w just a tad more right now.
What do you think?
When Mrs. C contacted me to surprise her mom with ‘mom & daughter’ pics, I was so ecstatic I could hardly contain myself! It was even more exciting because I had just shot her wedding last year and I thought it was so cool to have grown up pics of her and her mom. I love the idea so much that I plan to have mother/daughter photos done with my mom this year.
Every week, at least for the next 15 weeks, I will be featuring a what to wear post.
And here is number one…since it’s still a little cold outside. These would be great for Winter or Fall.
