In lieu of sticking to my goal (yes…I’m very behind on it) posting more images and more of my content; I’ve decided to share some of my favourite shots of people from the past few years. Some may have already been shared previously and a couple, I never had the courage to post; so here goes.
“Steely“- Aug. 2015: I took this shot on a whim, it was a hot August day, we decided to fill buckets with water and have an impromptu water play day! Neveah has always loved water, from the 1st time she had a bath she literally leapfrogged in the bath! Scared me to death! Anyhow, I decided to focus the camera on her as she played and then gently called her, she looked up and I quickly snapped this. The intensity in her eyes, maybe from wondering why I was taking yet another shot of her…no idea, but I am really proud of this shot. I know I am biased, but she is just so gorgeous! #swoon
“Love Toes“- May 2015: I was asked by my lovely friend to take shots of her little girl a few years ago and of course I couldn’t say no! This shoot was far from your standard one, it took place at her home, with her entire family as my cheering squad. #nopressure. I took a lot of shots of Baby S, but this one is one of my favourites, because who doesn’t like baby toes!?
“Daddy n Me“- May 2016: I love this capture, it’s so simple and came about with ease. We were at the boardwalk in Hudson was trying to keep Neveah from going in the water. Lol, Ben then picked her up and she rested her face against his, I just snapped away- it was only later when I was editing the shot that I realised just how lovely of a shot it was. Her expression is so sweet, I. Just. Can’t. Deal. #squee
“Reggies & Sam Engaged”– Date: This was one of the earliest photoshoots I did, where I actually offered to do the shoot, this is notable because I need to work on my self promotion more, but as it was my big brother- I knew them well enough that I would be comfortable, so it gave me practice and them photos…win/win. I really enjoyed taking these shots, the backdrop was lovely, I had two gorgeous models and they were really open and willing to try different shots, even if I might have been uncomfortable, it didn’t show on film! Family is always great to practice on!
“The Milfords”– March 2016: We had the amazing luxury to be able to fly over to the UK to witness my sister-in-law and brother-in-law get hitched. It was a great family reunion, with wonderful atmosphere and lots of fun to the kids; Neveah didn’t want to get off the dance floor! I took a few shots throughout the wedding, but I was very self-conscious (no change there), but I was also trying to be considerate to the hired photographer and to also enjoy the wedding itself as a guest. Trust me, I very much enjoyed the candy bar!
