Cousins | Mother's Day Session

/ 12:06 PM
This session was for a Mother's Day gift and I have been dying to share these for DAYSSSSSS and today is the day!

For some reason, when I get to photograph this family, it's either cold, windy, or both! I think we are so used to it now that we just adjust as needed. These kiddos were awesome considering the conditions we had.







This girl. She always needs a pep talk before a session but when she warms up, she is so silly. I always look forwarding to see what shots I get with her!

I have been wanting to scout some locations for photo sessions so last week for Spring break, we went hiking/exploring at a park that is right in the city! I want to go back when everything really starts to bloom. It was a little sad to see the lake so low. Hopefully, we'll get some rain to fill it up soon.

This little cutie turns ONE this month! I remember his newborn session like it was yesterday.











My love of photography started way back when I first opened an Etsy shop. I was using a little point and shoot camera trying to get the perfect product photos to use for my listings. It was a love/hate relationship I had with that camera. However, fighting with that camera and getting irritated with trying to find the right "studio" light taught me a lot about photography.

When I upgraded to a semi-professional DSLR, it changed my life! Ok, not really my life but definitely the way I approached taking photos. From that point I started learning how to shoot in different settings (I'm still learning), using light properly (I LOVE natural light. Natural light is my friend.) and styling (whether it's products or people).

And then......I started shooting in manual mode. Holy Cow! I noticed even more of a difference in my photos....for the better.

I've never looked back.

Now I shoot mostly in manual mode (aperature mode if I'm feeling lazy) and RAW format because both give you so many more options when editing.

Anyway, so product photography really gets the credit for starting my passion for photography and I recently had the opportunity to style & shoot some products for a friend that has a local and online boutique. It was fun to go back to my roots.
This was my first ever (other than my own girls) newborn session. I definitely learned A LOT about photographing newborns and can't wait for the next opportunity!
