As a visual storyteller, it’s my privilage to document lives, personalities, moments, emotions, and stories. Maternity portraits are among my very favorite stories to tell because this is a whole new chapter in a couple’s life.
This chapter has never been told before and adds a wonderful, exciting, maybe even a little nervous twist to the plot of life.
It was a beautiful evening by the Laramie river where we photographed this session. Perfect golden light and can’t you just feel the glow of excitement from this couple as they wait this last little while before their new little one is born?
If you are expecting a baby and are interested in photos that document this exciting, beautiful, and special time in your journey as a new parent, CONTACT ME for more info: 307.399.1295 or READ MORE about our Sweet Memories Newborn Portrait Sessions.
Help me out please. I like the black and white conversions of these better. I think. But my husband prefers the color. Now I can’t decide so will post both. What do you think?
I love this weeks challenge because coffee is my morning drink of choice! Add a few generous dashes of creamer and I am one happy non-morning person. And my favorite habit each morning while the coffee is brewing is to throw open the shades and let in all this beautiful morning light!
Check out Hilde’s interpretation of the theme!
This week our theme is “wide.” So since I don’t use my widest focal length very often, I thought I would give it a shot! So here goes:
This first image was photographed with a 24 mm focal length. Notice the difference between this photo and the next.
This second photo was shot with an 85 mm focal length. Note: All my settings were the same including my proximity to the subject. The only thing that changed was my focal length. The first image shows some distortion whereas the 85 mm image is significantly improved.
Wide angle lens’ are useful for times when you are shooting in very tight spaces and can provide some interesting and fun distorting effects.
These next images were shot with an 85. Not wide angle so I am getting off my theme a bit here but couldn’t stop myself. This third photo with the close-up of the baby chicks is funny to me because the right chick, if you can tell, has been plucked and de-feathered compared to the left. This is the handy work of my babyzilla. The fat, roly-poly, hazel-eyed darling that terrorizes our prized possessions with charming and relentless energy. You have to be one tough chick to make it around here folks!!
As you can tell, I am a touch wistful for Spring. It will be at least a couple months before we see even a small hint of spring weather but hey, one can always dream!! Have a wonderful Friday!!
It was a bit challenging to get these shots of my little cupid. We were all a little hysterical with laughter watching him waddle around, his little wings bobbing every time he moved. No doubt about it, my boys have stole my heart!!
