Hello all. Thought I'd share some fun ways to take pictures of maybe reluctant teenagers and middle schoolers. You don't need much besides maybe a bribe of pocket money or something yummy for lunch, ha ha. No really, a lot of kids this age love to pose anyway and here honestly all we had was a white wall and some black eyeliner which these two fashioned into cat's whiskers. Way cute! This is my daughter and her friend and was actually taken outside in front of our garage door 5 minutes before they were off to their Middle School Halloween Disco. Keep backgrounds simple and find contrast between your subject and backdrop, the result is a filmstrip like quality. It's a great way to create a contact sheet series of images with each frame having a different pose. Kids love them too because they're "cool" and have that retro photo booth vibe that is so popular at the minute. Have fun!
This tropical location seems a distant land as I write this from the snowy winter land that is outside my window just now. Nonetheless, I am getting ready to launch my portrait sessions here and would like to share some recent work in that genre. This is my lovely friend Kim from our photoshoot at the Botanic Gardens in Singapore. Outdoor locations are great backdrops and a good way to present a sense of place. Whether having a portrait made for school, work or personal brand, getting outside is a nice approach. Details on my upcoming portrait sessions and how to book will be posted on my blog shortly. Please check out my website for more galleries. Hope to see you soon!
It takes a lot of time to process and edit the photographs from a wedding day, but the wait is so worth the memories made. Take a peek here of the recent wedding I photographed in La Jolla, California for my niece and nephew. The full story coming soon. Thanks for following along xox
Wedding Pictures! This is Rob and Stephanie who married on a beautiful sun kissed beach in California. I flew half-way across the world to be there and see my long time home-slice tie the knot. It was a spectacular day with a super fun wine filled reception that followed at a most beautiful vineyard I ever did see. It was a whirlwind trip and I wish I could have stayed longer, nevertheless I am SO happy to have been a part of it. Here's a few photos from the day...
This was my place a few weeks ago. All snow, silver and magic. I run in these woods usually but haven't put on my running shoes since November. I'm aching! As I write this the sun is shining and the weather has turned. I went for my first run this morning and it was so good to be back! The snow is near enough melted, the sun is warm and light, the first bluebells are starting their blooms and the evergreens are showing their emerald might again. Three cheers... hip, hip, hooray!
