I took beautiful pics of Leah, Kinsley's babysitter and I can finally share them. She never had her Senior Portraits done so for her 18th birthday as a surprise to her dad, Leah wanted to have me take some portraits of her. Of course we went with a country theme. With the fun locations and being bathed gorgeous in light, I think the results
turned out pretty amazing.
Oh and if you are in need of a babysitter, let me know, Leah is awesome with my little one.
Thanks to a referral from a regular client, I had the pleasure of photographing K and her boys a couple weeks ago. Everything about this session worked awesome from the lighting to the location and the end results. I was just happy going through every photo....not that I am not happy going through other photos, just every once in a while you have a session that you are editing that brings you so much joy seeing what you captured, and this was on of them.
It always cracks me up what kids use to get real smiles for their portraits. The younger boy here (along with the boys in the family portraits a few posts down) was no exception. He had all of us laughing.
I also had the opportunity to do some business head shots for the dad of the last blog post. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. Not that I wouldn't expect anything but good portraits from anyone in this family.
So shortly after I posted my last blog which included wanting to photograph and Indian wedding, I received a call from another photographer to cover a birthday party for her. When I showed up I learned it was an Indian First Birthday party and man did they go all out. It was pretty much a wedding reception, not the typical birthday party that I photograph but it was soo much fun, especially the dancing. The food was pretty good too but a little too spicy for me even though everything I picked was said to not be spicy....I am a wuss, what can I say?
Here are some of my favorite photos from the day:
Isn't this the most beautiful family you have ever seen? I forgot to mention the clothes at the party as well. They were amazing and so colorful.
No cake smash at the party, the birthday girl didn't even want a taste of it. She was very into dancing though. In the photo below where she is pointing her finger, she danced like that the whole time. It was really cute.
Hopefully now that my photography bucket list is out there, I will continue to get to at least half mark-off (and eventually fully) the items on it.
I have a list of things in my head that I have always wanted to photograph. I thought I would throw them out into the universe and maybe some of them will happen.
1. Wedding on the Coast - most likely the WA or OR coast but I am not picky. Any beach will do.
2. Indian Wedding - they look so colorful and like alot of fun
3. Something that gets published in a major magazine. In my mind it is a big fancy fashion spread but anything would be fun.
4. A birth - I don't know why, it just seems interesting to document a life coming into the world. Not sure if it would be for me on a regular basis but I would love to try it. I have done a few portraits right after birth and those are fun too.
5. Venice, Italy - I want to go there sooooo bad and if I am taking pics there, it means I am visiting there.
6. An Image from a Significant Event in History - don't really know how to explain that except it would be cool to be part of an event and look back and say "I was there...here's the proof"
7. The perfect portrait - no matter how much I like an image I always come back and thing about what I could have done to make it better
8. A really cool lightening shot
9. An amazing nature shot that is worth framing and hanging on my wall.
10. My grandkids - that means I am around long enough to see any kids I have grow up and hopefully the grandkids too...even though that is a long long way off considering my baby is only 15 months old.
Feel free to post what is on your photo bucket list or make a list of your own!
