Studio portraits 04.26.07

April 26, 2007

Quite a lot of variety today. We photographed family portraits, newborn portraits, headshots, and three year old portraits – all in the same session!

First, the star of the show. This little guy is just two weeks old. He slept through the first half of the session, but came to life for the second half.

Then there were family portraits – including the dog Oscar! He wasn’t too thrilled about being away from the comforts of home, but he still did pretty well.

Next a beautiful three year old princess. Pretty in pink.

And last but not least, headshots for Dad!

Newborn photos 04.24.07

Tonight we had the pleasure of photographing Eetu, a beautiful six day old baby boy.

Mommy and Daddy also did their maternity photographs with us, and it’s always great to see new Mommies and Daddies with their bundles of joy. =)

This evening I had the pleasure of photographing Butch and Cecilia, who are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary (congratulations!!)

We did some photos at the hotel and out on the beach, some in more formal clothing and the rest in casual clothing.

It was a beautiful evening, a tad breezy and chilly but clear and sunny.

What a fun shoot this afternoon. Stacy (who is in the Army) and Steve (who is in the Navy) wanted portraits together. Steve is leaving for Kuwait very soon.

Luckily, they were interested in shooting with our new red backdrop, which looks VERY cool. Here I had the lighting set up such that the red looked black.

And, they liked the flag backdrop so we got to use that as well. I love shooting with the flag, it just looks so cool when lit properly.

For something a bit different, I also shot a couple of silouette photos using the flag.

Thank you again Steve and Stacy! I hope you enjoyed your session today.

Tonight I had the pleasure of photographing a fun group at the beach.

The surf was high and rough, and we had to dodge some serious waves to get the reflection pictures.

We also used the rocks and the concrete wall as a backdrop, with some big waves in the background.

And finally a fun photograph of Mom on the wall. 😉
