Does it get sweeter than this? Reese and Avery are my beautiful nieces. We took some fall photos while they were visiting Papa and Grandma Diz.
At this little shoot I learned
- peek-a-boo is always cool to a kid and everyone knows how to play!
- even dead flowers can make a cute picture
- don’t forget to factor in ALL THE MOVING kids do. There was a lot of blur.
While on a family trip to Sun River Resort last month I took an opportunity to take pictures of my sister in law, Emily, and her three beautiful girls. What I learned at this shoot is that having good lighting is more important than having a bunch of good backdrops. I spend a lot of time just blurring the background while editing anyway.
This turned out awesome for several reasons.
- I got some cash flow! With a new baby on the way I am trying to still save for a new computer.
- The girls are so pretty that I couldn’t take a bad picture.
- This was also awesome because Emily is planning to hook me up with some of her friends for more family shoots. We’re thinking we’ll just take a day of pictures at a park somewhere in the Hillsboro area. Suggestions?
Here are some of the best pictures. You’ll also see some of the other nieces because, like I said, we were just at a family get away and we shot a few pictures in the backyard. That’s as good as it gets!
I didn’t know about this annual event before this month. Apparently hundreds of people in Eugene/Springfield like to crowd themselves into the old theater to watch TV together. Yes, they could be comfortably sprawled out on their couch with their jam-jams on and sipping drinks without having to tip, but they don’t. I think the oddest part was the applause after the music performances. Nowhere else would you clap at a TV. Seemed strange, but ended up being pretty entertaining people watching, AND A NEW ADVENTURE for this girl. I was the official photographer at the event. I had a great time, learned a lot about my camera capabilities, and rekindled the love of working with adults. A good weekday break from ten year-olds. The 93.3 crew was really nice to work with and I’d be happy to do it again next year.
