Everyone! Please make room………… for Carter!

Okay! It’s obvious. The kid is just beyond cute! I think everyone bugs his poor Mama to get him into modeling. Ill be honest, this is one kid that I had crossed my fingers to be in my portfolio! He just makes ME look good, doesn’t he?! Haha! Just playin’! (okay, no I’m not)

Here’s a little about Carter’s shoot:

  1. He had just come from a hair cut and FELT SMOOTH! Yes, my friends, he knew he looked good and he FELT good! ❤
  2. If you haven’t noticed, he loves to dance. Particularly, the “booty drop” which in a couple photos may just look like a squat. Ya know, that might be a bad idea during a shoot with me! How am I supposed to get any shots when Im so tempted to do the “booty drop”, too? Booty shake = Camera shake.
  3. The only other time I can remember laughing so hard at my subject was when I did a shoot with his Aunt and Uncle over 2 years ago… at the exact same location, actually!
  4. I’ll admit. I was trespassing on the property with the red barns and 2 people showed up for 15-30 minutes each to give me a hard time. Not good if I were running a legitimate business an this we’re a paid shoot! The first one let me go. Probably because Carter was insistant on having a conversation with him and totally “hammed” him over. The second one was respecting the owners wishes and asked us to leave regardless of Carter’s “hamminess”.  😦
Each photo has the oppostie conversion of color or B&W. If you are interested in seeing those, please stop by my Facebook fan page.

I hope you enjoy the photos. I KNOW you’ll enjoy Carter…

2nd Newborn Shoot: Sweet Baby Kaiden

My dear friends just had their super cute baby boy! It’s about time! I’ve been waiting forever for him to come! Sheesh! *wink wink* Thankfully, they agreed to let me do their newborn photos. I tell you what, this line of work is hard for someone like me! In a position where I love the parents and anticipated the baby’s arrival, all I really wanted to do is sniff his no-neck and kiss his irresistable fat cheeks off! SO distracting, y’know?!

Well, this is only some of a session. I will post all of them at My Facebook page if you would like to see the few that I don’t display here. I will be meeting up with the family again, this week, to practice a couple more newborn shoot ideas we’ve had and get some with the parents so that you can see how super hot they are! I hope you enjoy these and would LOVE to hear what you think!

Here is Chubby Luvins Baby Kaiden at 11 days old…

Summer in January

What a gorgeous day here in VeeYay!

I had my two school kids home “”””sick”””” (sure. uh huh.) so I took all the little groms outside for some fresh air. I’m always looking for the cooperative kid to have a session with…. but you know what???? That’s NOT what it’s really all about. It’s all about doing well with the completely uncooperative and doing exceptionally well with the cooperative.

Today, I focused on Kingston. You’re probably thinking Oh EASY! He’s photogenic. That’s partially true. He is photogenic but he is not easy to photograph. He’s a rambunctious toddler who has me chimping at my settings frantically. I shot full manual today and was more than satisfied with the kighting I had. With the sky being partially cloudy, I had fantastic lighting for moments then harsh lighting for moments. Below are a couple from the session. To see the rest, you’ll have to come like me on my Facebook (if you have’nt already).

Hope everyone got out for fresh air today!

Much Love… Liz
