Not my usual style...

I was asked by a friend to do a 'formal' photo shoot. If you know me at know that is NOT my style. I'm not great at it and I'm really just more of a 'go with the flow' sort of photographer. But, this was worth the exception to the rule. These sweet girls' Great-Grandfather was a portrait photographer for years and has always done their pictures. However, he is not feeling well these days and Grandma wanted to update the portrait that is in their living room. So...I gave it the old college try. Big Miss R did a wonderful job and was a champ while we attempted to convince her 2 year-old sister, Little Miss R... to cooperate. I have some really funny outakes for sure.

The bad part about this photo shoot is that now Little Miss R is going to think it's okay to sit on the end table!

This rocking chair has been in the family for several generations and Great-Grandpa recently did some restoration work on it. I hear he was quite a fix-it man in his time!

These are the moments I love...the 'in between' shots of interaction and love. Little Miss R LOVES her Great Grandma and Papaw. Thanks for trusting me to try and capture some portraits for you Mr. & Mrs. A....I know mine could never live up to the work you once did, but I hope you love them just the same!

I [heart] Faces...Let's hear it for the boys!

Boys are cool. Having never been a boy before...I find them extremely interesting, hilarious, and super fun. If they aren't huddled up in a corner somewhere playing 'guys' - they are probably tangled up on the floor attempting the latest and greatest headlock move. They make my heart smile.

I Heart Faces challenge this week is all about the boys...

Senior Shoot

Man. This kid is amazing. I mean, really - I was in awe of him. He's focussed, he's driven, he's talented. What's not to love? He loves God first and foremost. He is blessed with musical talent..which I admire because I have NONE. He's an athlete. He says "yes M'am" and "yes, sir" to his parents. When I asked if things were okay with him, he deferred to his parents - but not in an "I don't know" or "I don't want to make a decision" sort of way. It was total respect. Seriously - this guy is a winner. He's going places. It was a total and complete joy to begin his senior pictures today...and I say "begin" because we got rained out. It stunk. I kept second guessing myself and wondering if we should have waited a little longer...but in the end the decision was made and I just had to go with it. We'll finish up soon - I hope! Here's a few of the shots we got today...I loved them. The location was incredible and like I said, this was a super fun family!
