Autumn

09.15.09

I love that I found a place in So-cal where I actually could pull off a “fall” look – with the dry fallen leaves and autumn hues. Next month I go back to Pittsburgh to visit family and do client sessions …I look forward to the crisp air and trees ablaze in color.

The last image is of my lil’ subject being a great helper by carrying my the cart I use for my on-location sessions. I love that cart (got it at a shabby chic antique shop) – put all my stuff in it and funny how the kids seem to love to push it. :c)

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!
