What have I been up to lately?  Sickness running rampant through my family (over and done now), birthday parties (Happy 8th birthday to my little one), and lots and lots of pictures. Pictures always say it best, so I’ll leave it to them to show these families from four recent shoots.

#1 – I spy a baby in a basket grinning at me from ear to ear. I love it!

#2 – Nothing better than cool locations and tons-o-giggles

#3 – Beautiful light, beautiful family!

#4  Modeling headshots for little L.  She is heading to Chicago soon to pursue her modeling career.  GOOD LUCK!!

    Adorable! I especially love the #3 session family shot 🙂

  2. cynthia says:

    Jean, there are STUNNING. Oh, how I aspire. 🙂

    In general, what aperture do you shoot at for these types of outdoor family shots?

    Cheers and thanks for sharing!

    Ok, the shot under the bridge and the one with the two brothers (looking up at him) are my FAVORITE EVAR! When are you coming to Oregon? Or what are the chances you will be in Utah July 17-26th?

    I absolutely, positively love the silhouette of the family by the water…different and great. I also love the dad with the little boy close-up and the boy looking back at you while walking with his parents…those were my absolute favorites, but really all of them were awesome.

    thanks everyone!

    cynthia…i am normally shooting between f1.4 and 4 aperture, but with these outdoor family shots, i am somewhere between f4 and 7.1. for individuals or one or two people, i am usually around 2.8.

    mikki…thanks! those were my two faves too!
