Take me out to the ballgame

Thursday, April 26, 2012
I headed back to the ball field for a few more baseball portraits with Ryan at his home field.  We do not often photograph sports photos, so it was a good challenge to get some traditional photos with a bit of a modern take on it.  With most of my days full of sparking white dresses, tuxedos, flowers, or sleeping babies, a day with an athlete reminded me how far I've come since my days of thinking I was a high school athlete.  I've even lost the lingo... Ryan was a good sport and put up with me describing his poses while my brain fought with me for the words.  Great job, Ryan!

Big Brother B

My last blog post was a sleepy, cozy, quiet set of images of a newborn.  Let's say that today is after nap time. It's time to play with big brother B to celebrate him turning 2!

 Happy Birthday, Big Brother B!

Shhhh.... he's sleeping.

 Naps in the sunshine are my favorite. Maybe our time together will rub off on this little fella.

 I just love these little baby toes!
 Congratulations on your newest little one!

Kocher Family

One of the first photo projects I did with children while I was in college included one of these kids.  She was tiny. Now she's all grown up. Can you guess?

But this (seriously) wonderful family, that I can brag on for hours
 still has plenty

of little ones

to keep me going...

I love how each of their personalities come out on this one... It's a great representation of them as a family: bright, cheery, together, a little goofy.

This little gal is a firecracker. She's bright, colorful, lively, and she makes me grin. Just like a good set of fireworks. :) She also is celebrating being two!

disclaimer: Your cheeks might hurt after this one.  She's just delightful!

 Her momma concocted this awesome plan of whimsy+ forest+ balloons + blue dress. I like it. :)
 But as much as I love her in the forest floor, with flowers galore
I also love the balloons here, hilltop.
 Time to figure out how to make this outfit work in adult-size. I want to wear leggings and gray chucks...

Ryan: High School Senior

Meet Ryan.  Senior at Collinsville Christian High School, student athlete, and I'm going to add natural on the other side of the camera.  His session was on a gorgeous cloudless day- but that sun is harsh- and he did an amazing job.
 He let me experiment a bit with some lighting setups, and I am so glad he did. I love these!
 I can't get enough of this one...
