We got to welcome a new baby into the family this week! My cousin Holly, and her husband Adam, were blessed with beautiful baby Samantha on Monday, June 11. You can tell she’s going to be a huge MU fan, right? 😉
After playing around with my 50 mm lens yesterday evening, this was my favorite image of the night. I’ll be traveling for work the next few days, so I’ll post photos after I return.
Our apartment complex had our parking lot re-paved yesterday, so I convinced Jerod to play around with some night portraits in the empty parking lot. There was a lot of giggling and a lot of eye-rolling (I’m sure you can guess who was doing what), but I think I ended up with some good photos. I couldn’t decide which type of portrait I liked better, so I’m including two.
Since I didn’t have much going on the last couple of evenings, I decided to play around with self-portraits. I still have a lot to learn, so feedback is welcome.
We had a family get-together at my parents’ house on Sunday. It was a scorcher, but luckily we had the pool and lots of homemade ice cream to keep us cool!
The first photo of my 365 Day Photography Project was a little baby bump named Blueberry. Yesterday I finally got to meet Blueberry, who is now 3-month-old Leah. She was such a great model for family portraits with Mommy & Daddy! She already has 18 pairs of shoes, which is at least 3 times as many as Daddy.
This photo blog is having a self-portrait challenge this week, and yesterday’s challenge was to utilize props. This is my typical, daily lunch. I’m excited to say that in a week I’ll be experiencing a totally different kind of lunch!
Yesterday was a first for me – I shot body paint portraits. I don’t want to reveal her identity and ruin the surprise, so here’s just one sneak peek.
