Cale’s Turn

Cale wanted a turn at some jumping shots after seeing Kirsten’s.  I didn’t feel like setting up my backdrop again so we jumped on his bed instead.  I much prefer real settings like this over the backdrop any day.  Plus his room gets the most beautiful afternoon light.

And what kid would turn down the chance to jump on their bed!?

Mike + Angela {1st Wedding as a Second Shooter}

I had a blast second shooting this wedding for Vienna Glenn Photography in June.  Weddings are definitely as fun to shoot as I imagined they would be.

You can check out Lea’s shots from this wedding here.

I was feeling really calm and collected about shooting this wedding which kind of surprised me.  And then the nerves suddenly hit me minutes before the ceremony started and I shook like a leaf.  I realized at that moment how you pretty much get one chance to get some of those really important shots.   Thankfully the nerves didn’t last long and despite my camera not being able to handle really high ISO’s I’m happy with the shots I got.  Lightroom is amazing for taking the noise out of images.

Fun Times

Having a little fun with Kirsten the other day.  Standing and posing gets boring so we made it fun.  She loved coming up with her own jumping ideas. 

The Rest of the Story

These series of pictures make me laugh because they tell perfectly how these two interact together.  They have very little tolerance for each other at times.  Cale is not kissing his brother because he loves him, he is kissing him because he knows it will make him holler.  Cale’s days are mostly spent trying to get these types of reactions out of his brother.

Cale’s first photo shoot

I was trying to find some pictures of Cale to print and hang on our newly painted walls but realized I really didn’t have that many that would work.  So, we did our first shoot together.  I figured it would be a good opportunity to spend some some time alone with him too but he surprised me by asking for his brother to come along.  The brother that he fights with all day long.

He was looking forward to playing on this photo shoot and thought Mom wanted one or two pictures and was a little surprised that I expected more than that.  But he cooperated nicely and I got some shots of him that I really like.

Love how serious he looks in this one:

He started doing his own posing:

I love the challenge of back lighting and practice it any chance I get:

I have a series of these shots below that sums up how these two interact together.  I’ll save them for another day.
