When I first moved to the area, I spent weeks just driving around looking for special places to take photos. Basically location scouting for my clients. One day, I drove a pretty good distance from Peachtree City and I stumbled across this old Purina pet food factory. The weeds were high and the metal from the old factory had rust stains. These are two of my favorite things when looking for a spot. (Not that I like the snakes that are sometimes in those long weeds!)
I used this space for just a few clients. I new it would be perfect for a male senior session. It has been a long time since I have photographed there. Last I was there the crew of the Walking Dead had found this spot and were using it.
Often times, parents call to schedule sessions for the senior high school students. They often ask what they should bring if anything. I like to suggest they bring something that identifies who they are as a senior. Whether they play a sport or and instrument, anything. This is a good example of someone who brought great items that represented part of who he is his senior year. His sport, his car, and his jacket.
Wow, once again it has been a while since I have posted. Happily, that means I have been swamped and haven’t had time to write. I carved out today especially, just so that I could bring some images to all of you. I love sharing your beautiful smiles and the milestones that you reach. Really, besides the corporate head shots that I do, capturing milestones in peoples lives is what I do.
How fantastic is that last year of high school! Some seniors come to me the spring and summer before their senior year begins. Others wait until they’ve graduated. What ever your way of capturing this milestone, do capture it.
This young man met me here in Peachtree City. His photos are one after the other perfect.
Or maybe Maryland? I know I had to cut through Delaware to get there, but now I’m thinking it was the Maryland Panhandle…Hmm.
Anyway, it was beautiful. Right now in the beginning of October I just can’t get enough of sharing fall picture in the North.
This was a pretty location at a park with a railroad. Enjoy.
Usually I like to work with natural light. You hear this often when looking around for a photographer. The term “natural light photographer”. A photographer may genuinely prefer the use of natural light. They may like the less artificial look. They may just like the way they can play with sun light to get different looks due to position of subject or even time of day. If you have interest in photography, and you’d like to know more about lighting, here is a fantastic article by Darlene Hildebrandt.
I call myself a natural light photographer. I just love to play with what lighting the natural environment provides. There are times though when I make an exception. This location was one of those times. The auditorium was pitch black. I used some different arrangements of spot lights that the venue had. To that, I also used some of my own lights.
This sweet girl is beyond talented and has some talented shoes to fill with family that worked in Motown. The session was meant to highlight each of her talents. It was my pleasure to work with her and her family.
You may recognize these parents from an earlier maternity session. Well, their little princess has arrived and here she is. Enjoy!
This session has so many of my favorite photos it was hard to just pick a few to share.
I started this session by working with just the baby boy. He is such a peaceful little guy. The only noises he made were tiny little baby coos. I melted each time I focused on his little details. His sister was equally adorable to work with and a bit more feisty. I think that is evident in one of the black and white photos that I am sharing below. As we set up the shot to capture a pose where a baby rests their chin on their arms, she surprised me by insisting on lifting up her head. I still can’t believe that shot.
I titled this session 20 Fingers and 20 Toes because of big sister. She counted each toe for me as we snapped the photos of her with her siblings.
I came across this location while on one of the golf cart paths here in Peachtree City. My boys and I were heading to t-ball and were winding our way around some new paths. I fell in love as soon as I came upon this location. Three ponds, two bridges and willow trees. I couldn’t wait to meet with my client and try out this new location. When the day came, I was thrilled to meet this really sweet couple. They were up for every idea that I had in mind and this location offered up plenty.
I had the pleasure of photographing this family a year ago. That session was very different. It was in Pennsylvania and it was winter. It was not the coldest session that I ever shot but it came very close. I believe the temperature was in the thirties. The kids spent time cuddling their parents in blankets between shots and even during some shots for body warmth. I was glad to see that although now it was a sunny day a whole year later, the cuddling still went on. This family exudes love for each other.
