Stella

06.29.09

As stated in the post before this, I was recently in St. Louis co-teaching the Soul Sistas Workshop with my good friend Michelle Huesgen. Had a blast photographing her two kiddos on a private farm near Michelle. One down side was a heat wave decided to come on through during my stay and it was sooo hot and especially humid. When we did this shoot there was a heat index (at 7pm mind you) of 115 degrees. In beginning our shoot Michelle and I both swore we wouldn’t judge one another for how we smelled or looked. *Snort*

I love this capture of Michelle. Now this is a shot of a child photographer / mom in action. Her boy in the background and her daughter Stella watching on the sidelines.

If you are in the St. Louis area and looking for a child & senior photographer, I highly recomend Michelle! View Michelle’s website

Okay, now onto my images of Miss Stella …. here I’m playing around with some new techniques and pushing the boundaries of what I normally do.

This girl was so fun to capture … she has such beautiful and intense eyes. And she’s quite the hula-hooper!

Also, I am going to be away from the blog for the next two weeks as I’m heading out for a bit of vacation and some work in the mid-west. I’ll be back soon with more updates and images. Until then!

First, does she not look like a lil’ Katie Holmes? So classy. She has an “old fashioned” feel to her. Like her name should be Emma or Cecily. Granted, now that I think about it … her real name is old fashioned. Fits her.
