I took hundreds of shots at this stunning wedding, but this image is one of my personal favorites. I luv the light / dark contrast and the silhouette as well as the shadow play....

Sometimes, simplicity is good.  It's amazing how may options there are for images different colors & tones to affect the mood of the shot.  If you've been following for awhile, you'll notice I like the golden tones, don't know why. I luv using natural light... I like being creative with my pictures vs. getting them technically perfect.

OMG....learning so much in the last few days. First-time shooting RAW is crazy at first.  Super excited about the opportunity to be a second shooter at a wedding & to work and learn from a pro.  I've decided to be more positive & take chances.
Here is one of my first few images shot RAW.

My camera now can get pretty good macro shots, but I have to get about a foot away to do so....time to invest in a telephoto. Maybe I will rent or borrow, we'll see.

Did a special grandpa/ grandson shoot....we were very lucky that we were approaching golden hour with no rain in sight (a photographer's dream). We planned to shoot with them on a little train, but when we arrived, the gates were closed & the train was gone :( . We did the entire shoot in an empty parking lot !

I found this PERFECT little spot off the lot, where most of the close-ups were shot. I was running and out of breath by the end. Toddlers are an active bunch! I'm very proud of this set cuz I got to capture all the shots that I had envisioned for months. It helps to have a perfect little model without attitude, too.haha

The other day I went to the beach for a walk...I was surprised to find that the beach was covered with hundreds of these beautiful rocks- each one so different from the others in colors and textures.  Normally, there are none. I was so disappointed that I didn't have the camera with me, but I did sneak a few home.

I luv the bold colors and lighting in this restaurant...

Came across these little runners the other day....they are so full of spirit. I love their natural expressions.

How lucky I was to capture their joy - looks like they didn't really care who won or lost at this age :)
