Practicing

Baby Girl came home Saturday (she has a dentist appt. Monday morning).
Which gave Mike a reason to come home too.


Baby Girl thought I might like to practice some shootin'





I'll always take someone up on a shootin' offer.
My photography mentors have all said the same things...

"Keep Shootin'"
and
"Practice, Practice, Practice"


It's actually nice to be asked


Instead of imposing with my camera all the time.


Speaking of imposing with a camera --- I just want to tell you all that Mike is a VERY GOOD SPORT when it comes to doing things for Baby Girl.  He knows what I'm talking about -- and I'm sworn to secrecy.  Take my word for it -- he's a good sport.


These kids are easy to shoot.  The are comfortable in their own skin, and with each other.


I've learned that when subjects are comfortable with the shooter -- 


 -- they are more relaxed which helps the shooter to get better shots.


-- this is my favorite picture of all the MANY I took in an hour's time


I'm not sure which edit I like the best -- but it might be the one above


The simplicity of the black and white is nice too


Thanks for the fun shoot kids
We'll do it again in the summer!

  6. Great pictures Cheri, My favorite is the close up with Danae's arms around Mike (but they're ALL great) . They are a cute couple and PERFECT to "practice on" (as a fellow "photographer-in-training" my mouth was salivating at the thought of willingly being asked to take pictures...YOU ARE KIDDING ME... how lucky are you !!!
    p.s. dont cha LOVE "picnik" the best thing of all, it's free.
