Priceless Moments

I was asked to be an assistant photographer for a wedding a few months back. It was fun to view a wedding from behind the lense! These are some of the favorite pictures I took.

1..2..3.. Eyes on Me

This little man could turn on the charm; at 4, he already has wandering eyes. He eagerly smiled at the camera, but his eyes would dart this way and that. I employed the always useful 1..2..3.. eyes on me to capture several priceless moments.

Meet Miss Yaya

Miss Yaya has suffered from a lifelong affliction of pose-itis. The camera comes on a frozen smile and dead eyes pop into place. The only cures for pose-itis are long walks with Mom and frolicking through fields of flowers. Well done Miss Yaya!

This little snip is one and a half and was far too busy to stop and smile for a camera for more than a second.

It's raining girls?

It is funny to me how eager little girls are to turn their inner divas on the moment a camera is turned in their direction. It doesn't matter if they are shy or grumpy, happy or moody; they just can't help themselves and we are all better for it.

Candid Moments

Some of the best pictures are taken in between poses.

Families are forever...

I stepped into the opportunity to take portraits of a couple of families at a friend's family gathering on Saturday. It was chaotic and crazy and fun all at once. I had about 10-15 minutes with each group and discovered exactly how hard it is to get 3-5 people to all look in the same direction at the same time and smile. I have a new respect for the poor guy who always took our family photos; trying to get around 20 people to all look not horrible at the same time... he was a genius!
Here are some of the results...

Six Days Old

Welcome baby Wesley! We had a fun hour of studio time with him and Mom who were both very willing to try different angles and poses.

Studio Time

I wanted to be able to have options with my photography since Oregon is such an unpredictable state when it comes to weather... thus the studio. Ana and I had fun playing with textures and lighting and I think we got some fun shots.

I only have 10 minutes...

I had 10 minutes this morning before church and all of my kids looked cute and Clean! We took a detour by the park and snapped several shots of the kids. For 3 minutes each, we got some great pics.
