Today I morphed into my doula role and spent the afternoon at the hospital supporting the c sect mom, that I photographed over the weekend, in nursing. I did grab a couple of shots of this angel while I was there. Can you blame me?

Today started as an ordinary Saturday morning with errands and projects. I was in the process of mounting large prints onto foam board when I got the call....Dr. is on her way to do a C Section now! I jumped into gear, barking out orders to the kids and rounding up my gear. I knew they were discussing doing a c section next week, and none of us had any idea that would get moved forward. Twenty minutes later I was out the door and on my way, and none too soon. By the time I arrived and donned my blues, I only had time to scrub my hands and they were ready to roll.

Three years ago Angela walked down this path, into the arms of her groom, David and their new life together. Today they walked the same path, reminiscing the past and anticipating the future as they prepare to be a family of three.
They are so in love, which made my job capturing their joy and love easy!
The above B&W is my absolute FAVORITE of the day!!!
|Entering the path of parenthood...|
Did I mention how much fun they had?
Don't they look like Brad and Angelina in these, especially the B&W?
|May God's love and goodness shine upon you and your family all the days of your life.|

Lighting! It will make or break a photo. It was one of the first things I began to notice, as I started on my photographic journey. Your aperture, speed and iso all work together to let the proper amount of light into your camera to produce a creative and correct exposure. For a more thorough understanding of this I encourage you to read Brian Peterson's Book, "Understanding Exposure".
Now that I have become aware of light, I find myself drawn to it. I am constantly searching out areas around our home looking for that sweet light. One of my favorite spots, is on my bed. I have a southern window to one side and a western window on the other side. I get good light in this room from mid morning until just before sunset. The white duvet works as a great back drop and reflector.
Other sweet spots around my house are my carport and screen porch, they both face east and are a great choice for morning sessions. A southern facing school room is great for mid-day shoots, and a western facing living room for late afternoon shoots.
Here is a great article on utilizing natural light indoors.
Now go find some light!
(For information on iso, aperture and speed see my resource tab.)

This week I had a family session in a nearby town. It was a last minute session, right in the middle of the day, so I packed up my crew and took them with me. While we were waiting on the family to arrive I got these great shots of my Little Man.

This little girl has to be one of the sweetest, most beautiful children I've ever photographed. As she slept she looked like an angel, and when awake those dark eyes just captivated me. What more can I say.
(These photos are a great example of how different light affects your photos. The two photos with the tan background were done with the overcast natural light, coming through a tinted window, the others were done using a flash bounced off the ceiling.)

Not wanting to be left out of the action her older sister came running! I've been trying to a get a great capture of these two together since before Christmas and every time one of them has been in a less than cooperative mood. Today I was delighted to have them both cooperating! One of these will soon be hanging on my wall.
I just can't decide which I like best? What do you think?
