We LOVE THE BRAINARDS! Ben leads worship at our church, and we have grown to love and appreciate his family so much! We went out to Cherokee Park to take these photos of them not too long ago, and I wanted to share some of my faves! We used an off-camera flash diffused with a softball for most of these. Let me know what you think!
We had such a fun time hanging out with Ethan, Jennifer, and Jaden on the grounds of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for their summer family session! Lindsay provided some beautiful reflected light with my Westcott Omega Reflector (as always — great job, babe!), and despite the crazy humidity outside that day, I think the three of them did amazing. Let us know what you think about their portraits in the comments! 🙂
I’m a little late on blogging this family’s beautiful portrait session, but I just couldn’t wait any longer! Shooting, editing, and babysitting my little one have consumed quite a bit of time (which is A-OK, btw!), but I’ve finally found some time to sit down, write a little bit about people that Lindsay and I have grown to love, and share their photos with you.
There I was, just minding my own business on our vacation. A couple of those mornings during a whole week at St. Simon’s Island, I went on early morning strolls (say, around 6:30).
I was walking along, when up on the shore swam this little mermaid!
You think I’m crazy. But I assure you…
I’m not crazy.
And here’s my proof! How adorable is she??
After chatting with the mermaid, she was able to tell me where she got her lovely crocheted suit! She would like to thank Amazon for providing such a beautiful product and bringing it straight to the sea!
She apologizes, however, for the interesting tidal system they have going on there at St. Simon’s. For future reference, the best times to come to the beach are in the early mornings and evenings if you want the tide to be in and make the walk down the sand a little shorter. You can tell your delivery guys. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Okay, in all seriousness, that’s my daughter in those photos. But I’m sure you already knew that 🙂
How does the saying go? The cobbler’s children had no shoes?
I completely agree. Only I’m not a cobbler — I’m a photographer.
The photographer’s children has no photos!
How many of you fellow photogs out there can relate to this? You spend so much of your time photographing other people that when you’re not photographing someone, your camera (which you spent a good deal of money on) sits in the bag unused until your next session.
That’s my experience.
So, over two months after Easter 2015 has come and gone, I finally get around to editing my daughter’s Easter photos. And I’ve included my favorites for you here.
I hope you enjoy!
