POTD at Shutterbugs

Here's a fun one for me. It's not that usual that I get a POTD of my own kids! Part of it is that I don't do "real" sessions for my kids like I should. But, on Tuesday, I got a whim to buy some fish for them. It was spring break. It was yucky outside. And we needed something to do. So, here's the shot. And it's a Photo of the Day today at shutterbugs.biz.

Hayley Here...

Hello readers :) I am just finishing up editing this session and thought I'd share some. Actually I am known in the group for being really bad at picking a "couple" images...so you get image overload with me...LOL :)
This session was a lot of fun and what I loved the most was the mix of photos I was able to get. The baby was 6 months old and she sat very well on her own which made it easy to pose her in things like cute tutu's, hats, bowls, etc. But for me, what made this session extra special was this family allowed me to just sit back and quietly observe life for them. So I was able to capture wonderful interaction shots of mom and dad playing with the kids, or the baby just laying playing with her feet. Also the older sibling played at her craft table for awhile and I have some shots of her doing that too that I love (but like I said already had image overload...LOL). It is always such a huge honor for me to go into a session and be able to be apart of a families ever day life.

All photos were shot with my new 5dmkii and my trusty Tamron 28-75 2.8 lens. These were all shot natural light. In the more posed shots, the light source was behind me.

This first one is really one of my faves. If you aren't familiar with my style, I like to use dramatic light and b&w's to tell my stories. And this was has those key elements. And you match that up with her eye contact...and wow it really gets me. :)

Enjoy the pics :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs

This image of this tiny dancer was selected as the Photo of the Day today in the People category at Shutterbugs.biz. I just love this beauty's little fingers as she ties her shoes. And her pretty face and falling hair. So pretty!
