October 23, 2011

I was messing around with the Adobe Lightroom presets and really liked some of these.  What do you think?

Cars

October 6, 2011

I have a thing for details, and I think classic cars have all the right details: curves, color, maybe a spot of rust. So I adore car shows; I take my camera and shoot all those gorgeous girls. These are some of my favorite shots from the past few years.

I hope you like them.  I’d love to hear your comments and critiques.

Skylar

January 9, 2011

I love love love photographing babies; they’re just so perfect.  I love watching mom and dad with a newborn, or seeing a three month old with a newfound curiosity, and few things in life are more precious than a big, stretching yawn from a still sleeping infant.

Skylar is a week old, and the new mom and dad could not get enough of her.  She was fully alert the whole shoot and showed off her gorgeous gray eyes.  She was also freezing, so we kept her bundled up most of the time.  Here’s a preview:

 

Thanks so much to Candace and Rich, who let me into their home and their lives for a few hours to capture little Skylar’s day.

Niagara Falls

December 14, 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I hope that all four of my fans will forgive me.   My husband Frank and I spent Thanksgiving with our best friends, Bobbie and Steve, and went up to Niagara Falls for a day.  Since I’ve been a total bum lately, tonight was the first time I’d looked at the pictures, but I found several that I wanted to share.  Here goes:

The view of Canada from the US shore.

 

What a view!

It was wickedly, bitterly cold.A double rainbow!

The sun briefly broke through the clouds.

This man is petting the squirrel as it eats out of his hands. No, it's not a pet.

It's hard to see, but that's a bird in flight eating out of his right hand.

 

The falls lit up at night.

Hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed shooting them!

Holly and Jason

October 17, 2010

I just finished the wedding images for Holly and Jason.  I normally tell my clients to expect around 300 finished images, but I ended up with nearly 500 for this wedding; I just couldn’t decide what I liked best!  Here are a few of my favorites.

1.  The maid of honor helping with the garter.

2.  Daddy giving away the bride.

3.  Daughter Natalie playing in the sand.

4.  Family portrait



5.  The bride’s niece having fun with her dress.

6.  The wedding party. 

 

7.  Having a little fun. 

8.  A few quiet moments before the reception.

9.  The groom was a good sport.

10.  Backlit

11.  The bride saw this shot in a magazine and wanted to recreate it.

The bride’s sister also shot the wedding.  You can check her out at www.summermartinphotography.weebly.com.
