This is a very helpful article on how to do make-up for your photo shoot. For instance, glitter looks fun in person but doesn’t really photograph well. Check it out!
Great article on helping decide how to dress for a photo shoot!
Brian and Linda arranged for their 5 kids, their wives, and their children to all meet up at the Taft Barn in Atascadero, Ca. Especially because their daughter Jen, her husband Michael and their 3 adorable boys were visiting from Michael’s homeland – Australia. Maybe the ultimate challenge for a photographer is a huge family grouping – but there was such a great camaraderie amongst this family that it made my time with them a great pleasure!
I realized that many of the photos from this session epitomize who I am as a photographer. I strive to capture the heart of who people are – not direct people to put on a “smile for the camera”. I don’t want to come away with a series of pictures of people who performed for the photographer – I want to portray people in moments as they interact with each other. And that they will be left with pictures that years later will evoke emotions and feelings and special memories of their times together.
Meagan, Dylan and Ayla met me at Summerwood Winery in Paso Robles, Ca. How can you not have fun with an adorable, vivacious two-year old and her fun-loving parents?? Special thanks to my special friend Tonya for her assistance – she really helped make the session especially fun (and I think Ayla fell in love with her . . .) Summerwood Winery was the perfect setting for fall color and festive decor! Be sure and visit next time you go wine-tasting in our area.
I love this little series – Ayla is an adorable little whirlwind – and her parents adore her!
Corbitt and Katie had already been married in a civil ceremony, had a darling little girl and now was time for the dream wedding. They chose Lago Giuseppe for the wedding location – first time there for me – and it is such a dreamy and magical setting! The ceremony was short and sweet – and then it was time to feast and party with 150 friends and family. I loved watching the camaraderie amongst all these people helping to celebrate the union of this loving and fun-loving couple!
