In getting ready for last night’s session, I needed to do a lighting test. The humans were uncooperative, but sweet Stella agreed to pose for me. She has now been with us for three months, and it’s amazing how much she has grown. She has all the makings of a great dog, but she’s in those crazy early teen years now and we never quite know what we’re going to get from her.
You also get a sense here of some of the potential of the white floor in the studio. It needs another couple of coats of paint and the finish molding, but we’re getting close to having the space complete. I’m looking forward to sharing photos here.
Finally, beautiful sunny skies and a rainless session. I had a great time with Caitlin on Saturday morning as we ventured out to some of my favorite spots, including the pond at my parent’s house. As you can see here, Caitlin showed tremendous versatility, and I had fun processing her preview — from the classic beauty of the violin to the edginess of the railroad tracks. We caught it all. I can’t wait to process the rest of the session.
Have I mentioned rain? That seems to be the theme for 2009 sessions. Dede’s beauty, style and grace broke right through it though, and we had a great session.
I have been thinking about how lucky I am to have the beautiful architecture of the Court House, railroad tracks, graffiti, brick alleys, and beautiful gardens all a quick walk from the studio. I especially enjoyed working with Dede on the tracks.
I’ve started adding the Class of 2009 into the galleries and pages of the Senior Site. I’m loving these fresh faces.
A quick note and update on the Graduation Sale: Tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of the offer for a reduced July session fee or to prepay for a Classic Collection and eliminate the session fee altogether. This has been a very popular offer, and July is continuing to fill in quickly. Please call today or tomorrow if you want to lock in these special prices.
I try to use the blog to share a sneak peak with clients after a session and before their gallery goes live.
It’s a thrill to have senior season back in full gear. I very much enjoy having the opportunity to meet all these great kids.
Aryn invited me to the farm in Bloomfield, and I had a wonderful time with her and her Arabian horse. It had been a long time since I had been in a stable, and it brought back sweet memories of Nora’s riding days up in Phelps. This was one of my three outdoor sessions over the last week with RAIN. Lots of rain. We used the cover of the barn and trees to continue on despite the cold rain.
This first shot is one I had in my head the moment Aryn called requesting a session with her horse. I’m not sure where, but it’s going in the new studio suite somewhere for everyone to enjoy.
