Zane and Rhiannon…a fun shoot out at one of my favorite places in the world, Joe’s Farm Grill. It’s tough to not want to use this place for every photoshoot I do, but it’s so beautiful. The old buildings, that wagon, the St. Augustine grass, the grape vine archway…I’m in love with it.
Thanks to these two kids and daddy Nate for letting me capture a few memories for you guys and hopefully mommy loves her birthday present!
The slideshow is just a few of my favorites from the shoot, ended up with a ton to choose from!
I’m still editing the photos from the little shoot we did Monday night, but I can’t get far before the desire to post a few of them gets the better of me. Both of these kids were too cute for words and an absolute blast to work with.
In the shot above, you can see it’s a black and white except for the eyes. That’s not fake color there, I just allowed the blue from the color version of this photo to remain while the rest went B&W. Such amazingly blue eyes!
And how cute is Rhiannon? She loves getting her picture taken, so she stood in this spot throwing me a bunch of funny little poses. Love this one below, in her brand new dress.
Meet five month old Zane and his big sister Rhiannon. I met both of these adorable kiddies down at Joe’s Farm Grill along with their father, who was looking to get some photos done in time for his wife’s upcoming birthday.
Great pleasure meeting all three of them and we had a lot of fun. Both kids were troopers, as doing any kind of photoshoot in the Arizona summer is brutal, even if it’s late in the evening. They made it just over 45 minutes and by that time we’d gotten what we wanted anyways.
Zane has the craziest blue eyes you ever saw and I loved Rhiannon’s little monkey earrings.
Thanks for letting me do this for you guys!
These are some of my favorite shots from a little photoshoot I did with Wyatt and Rachel on Tuesday night. The little guy was just four days old and the parents wanted some pictures of him, plus a few together with his big sister Rachel for some birth announcements.
We got the full spectrum of Wyatt…some super-sleepy to kind of wide-awake…he did such a great job. Of course, when you are that little and the goofy camera guy asks mom and dad to pose you in a certain spot…you are pretty much stuck that way *grin*
Although, little Wyatt actually almost rolled over onto his back a few times, so this guy might be ready for training wheels soon!
Rachel was a sweetheart and obviously already loves having a little brother. Must be such a weird, cool thing for a little kid to suddenly meet their new baby brother/sister…who knows what goes through their heads right?
This was my first official shoot indoors and I have to say I seriously love my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens…that thing is a miracle worker.
(this shot below was just an idea I sent them on how they could take two of the photos and put them into separate frames, but place them side by side on the way. I am no interior decorator, so cut me some slack, I just thought it was kind of cool)
Kids are fun to watch play together. My wife heard that toddlers play and act like adults without any censorship. For example, the kid at the mall yesterday that snarled at my 17-month old daughter like he was a lion on the prowl in Africa. You don’t see adults doing that, but we’d all certainly like to from time to time am I right?
The above scene was shot at a local restaurant with some of our friends. Two of the girls are already hard at work tearing grass out of the ground, while the third stands and contemplates joining them. Funny how for a child, a simple act of joining on the sport of grass-hocking causes a pause or hesitation.
Although, I suppose we old people aren’t much different from kids that way.
(this photo was taken at Joe’s Farm Grill, a wonderful little restaurant in Gilbert, Arizona that has amazing food and a great outdoor eating area. Check it out sometime!)
