Self Family Portraits

I just want to say that shooting your OWN family portraits is definitely harder than shooting someone else's. I don't know exactly what it is (besides the obvious tripod/timer/running and posing dilemma), but it's just not easy. I think I still managed to get a couple of good ones for the Christmas cards, but whew! I'm exhausted!

Scooter – Doggie Christmas Card Session

My first pet portrait session was a lot easier than I thought it would be! Scooter was really pretty cooperative and actually seemed to enjoy his little stint in modeling ;o) I needed to capture nine individual photos for use on a Christmas card and with the variety of outfits this little guy owns, that wasn't as much of a challenge as I thought it might be. Thanks Scooter for being such a trooper!

A colorful couple by the lake

The fall colors couldn't have been more perfect for today's couple shoot with my good friends! They live by a gorgeous lake and the weather cooperated too - who could ask for anything more?!

Three boys plus a few – a candid family session

The bike path in North Lewisburg leads to a really cool waterfall location and gorgeous colors in the fall. It really was the perfect location! We did our posed shots of course, but I was glad to get the chance to catch them in action as a family too - skipping rocks, playing in the water and even the occasional pout ;) This family is full of energy and packed with personality - two of my favorite things!!

Justin, Jill & Jackson – A family session

Today also included a family session with the three J's :) We met by an old bridge that I had been scoping out as a location for a while now, and the timing was just right for beautiful light. Little J took a little time to warm up, but before long, he was helping me capture his parents and posing for me like a handsome, little pro! We even got to get a little wet and play in the water for a bit :)
