I actually meant to post this post yesterday... time somehow got away from me, and also a massive toothache somewhat derailed things. Bleh. Oh, and if you haven't "liked" Moose on Facebook, why not? Just click here to do so. :-) Anyway, Moose and I have both had a pretty busy past couple of weeks, despite it being summer break. You may →
I think I set a record with these pics for the shortest it's ever taken me to post-process a session. Ok, I kind of lied... I'm not done with the session. But it's the fastest I've ever pulled out this many, anyway. On Saturday after work, I took some pictures of my coworker Kim's (of Yep They Are All Mine fame) →
Last week during spring break, I had three photo shoots of babies I've photographed before -- one is now 6 months, one is a year, and one is 18 months. It's a nice age spread, and while I've mentioned this before in past posts, it's just SUCH a kick to get to see them get older and look at how →
It's spring break, y'all!! :-) Yesterday morning I had to drop off my car at the repair place because, as I was rolling up my windows at the barn on Tuesday, my driver's window suddenly fell inside my car door. If you've been reading for a while, you may remember that this happened to my →
This is the longest break I've taken from blogging since I got back from my trip this past summer and jumped into the school year and grad school and was frankly, too depressed about being back from my trip to blog. That was weird -- I've heard of people getting post-vacation depression, but it'd never happened to me because I →
The little girl in these pics is the same one on the miniature horse in this post from last October, my first Tuesday Mooseday. She was out at the barn with her pet rabbit last Thursday, and this rabbit had to be the absolutely most quiet, patient rabbit I've ever seen -- it was perfectly content to just curl up →
I'm really, REALLY behind on post-processing right now. I don't actually do that much to the pictures I take. I shoot in RAW, and then I dump them in Canon Digital Photo Pro (yeah, I really need to switch to Lightroom -- figuring that out is on my list for this summer) and tweak mostly for white balance and sometimes contrast →
I meant to post this on Saturday, but I ended up posting those fireworks pictures instead, because I liked how they turned out. So here is my second and last "year in review" post --help me pick a "best picture of 2010" shot by posting in the comments with the number of the one you like. :-) Here's a link →
It's after 1:30 AM, I'm tired, I have a ton of pics still to proof from various other things, and my internet is behaving in a manner that's causing me to use obscene gestures in the direction of my router (I haven't taken a picture to add to this set yet, but I'm rapidly moving in that direction), so this →
I like the rain. I really do, honest. I don't like it enough to, say, move to Washington (sorry Mom!) but I do like it. That said, when it's nice and sunny during the week but picks the weekends to rain, I start to get a bit grumpy. There are only so many hours of daylight, and if it's going →
A friend of mine who is a children's photographer has remarked many times about just how awesome it is to take pictures for the same families year after year, and get to watch through her lens as the kids grow each year. I haven't been doing this nearly as long as she has, but I've already gotten to see a →
Yesterday afternoon I hopped on my bike and headed down to Old Sacramento to take some pictures of my coworker Mila and her family. You may remember (well, probably not, but I had to say it) that I took a few pictures of Mila and her daughter last month, but it was just two of them, and it wasn't anything →
Yesterday at work, one of my coworkers who is out on maternity leave stopped by with her six-week-old son to say hi to everyone. I happened to have my camera with me (I've gotten into the habit lately of dragging it just about everywhere with me) so I popped upstairs to where she was chatting with some people to snap →
This is one of John's nieces, looking at his parents' parrot. Sure enough, mischief did ensue.
Question: What happens when you get a three-year-old, a window, a camera, and the sugar-laden promise of birthday cake and ice cream together in the same place?
Ok, so I don't actually drink coffee (except for the occasional frappucino, but I don't think those really qualify as coffee) and I don't usually take a midday break, but yesterday I made an exception. I had a small project to do at work that involved my camera (more on that in another post) so I'd already had it with →
My post title is from a Paul Simon song that I've liked for years... it somehow seemed to fit for my coworker's lovely daughter, whom I was privileged to be able to take pictures of a couple of weeks ago. Kristin, she's beautiful. :-) . . . .
Here are the last of the pictures from Thursday's photo shoot -- the full gallery is here. I love all of these pictures. Thanks again for letting me take them, Holly! :-) .
Holly is a friend of mine from... well, it's kind of a long story, but she grew up in Davis (just outside of Sacramento) and went to Cal Poly at about the same time as me, and now she and her husband live just outside of London. Anyway, last summer she and her husband generously offered to host John and →
I love taking pictures of people's kids, and it's been a privilege to take pictures of my coworker Laura's granddaughters several times over the past year. As I was working on processing the most recent batch from right before Easter, I was struck by how much the girls had grown up. I mean, I know that's what little kids do... →
I don't usually do much Photoshopping of the pictures that I take. I shoot in RAW and I post-process, but that's only using Canon's free Digital Photo Pro app, and usually the only thing I really do in there is sharpen and tinker with white balance. But for the photo shoot I did of my coworkers grandkids a couple of Fridays →
IMG_5566-2, originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. This was the last picture from my photoshoot of my coworker's granddaughters during spring break. Shortly after this, hunger- and naptime-induced meltdowns ensued. I love this picture, though. :-) .
