a fall photoshoot with little ones

a few weeks ago
i got together with a couple friends of mine & shot their little kiddos.
it was a sweet morning & i was honored they wanted me
to capture some moments of their babies.

first time shooting someone else's children
mobile children
multiple children

 that morning the skies were super dark
& we considered rescheduling
but the skies began to clear once we arrived at our location
( note to self-buy a reflector)
the little ones were absolutely adorable
with such playful & precious little spirits

for mother's day dan bought me a fixed lens.
i don't think i've taken that lens off my camera since that day.
for the last few months  i  have tried to shoot in aperture priority
mess around with iso & white balance.
i have SO much to learn

i spend alot of time peeking around on many photograpers sites.
because of that, i am well aware that i have a long way to go...

here are a few hundred from that morning...

Love the way you truly captured their spirit. How much fun did you have??? I love this learning process. What camera do you use? What blogs are you learning from... I am doing the same thing!!

...These are simply very, very touching photos, Paige....!

You know; it isn't absolutely important the equipment of a photographer;..but what he sees and feels ...that's what is "taking" the photo!!!!!!

You have done it SUBLIME!!!!!

ElisabethCS said...

Photographing children is tough! It's even tougher for ME to shoot MY OWN children. I'm right along with ya...lots to learn still. But you're doing a great job! I just wish I had time to take a class on shooting in manual.

what an honor that they asked you! I can't imagine how nervous I'd be. Especially when you do look at other photographer's blogs who do it professionally all the time. Good for you! You did a fantastic job!
