Kiddos, Part 1

Two weeks ago, I had two photo shoots in a row - one on Saturday and one on Sunday. That's the first time I've ever dealt with this type of a schedule. I probably could have spread them out but part of me wanted to see if I was capable of handling back-to-back shoots.

It's two-and-a-half weeks later and both shoots are edited. One shoot's final CD will be in the mail tomorrow, and I'll finish the second one this weekend. The rewards of my hard work is that I now get to share the photos with you.

First up, Madeline.

It could not have been more excited to shoot Madeline because it was nice out and I knew we could head outdoors. But we started off inside just to all get warmed up in front of the camera.

This is Madeline.

As you can see, I got plenty of indoor shots. So then outside we went.

Now it had been months since I had an outdoor shoot, so I admit I was a bit rusty. And I made a rookie mistake. Sat my subjects down in the bright light of a midday sun with not a lick of shade in sight. This makes for really harsh shadows, so some of my shots weren't as good as I would have liked. But some shots, I still just absolutely love. Thanks goodness my subject was so cute - and came with a hat.

I should also mention, that Madeline's parents were quite the photo subjects as well.

And with that, this families' photo session was over. Our afternoon in the sun was done. But I had the next day's shoot to look forward to.

So long Madeline.

What a cutie! I like the one where she's tilting her head when she looks at the camera. Good work yet again my dear!
