Coral’s Fall 2011 Photo shoot

Here’s a sneak peak of some raw images from Coral’s photo shoot today.  She is always one of my favorite subjects to photograph.  Partially because she’s my niece and partially because she’s a TOTAL ham.

My Adorable Niece

Best part of photographing a 3 year old?  Inherent cuteness, no posing required, and LOTS of exercise.



There’s no place like home.

It’s true, sometimes there’s just no place like home.

Girls night with my Grandma.

Herb roasted SQUASH!

Free laundry, by the car load.

Cute puppies.

Homemade apple pie with ice cream.

Fresh vegetables from the garden.

Annoying little sisters, jk..

Tomorrow I’m taking fall pics of my older niece, Coral. and nephew, Alex.  Can’t wait to get the kids outside and have some fun in the leaves.

The Art of Cell Phone Photography

Oh boy, I don’t even know where to begin.

It was decided for many reasons that I should have an updated picture of myself.  Since I was hanging out with my little sister today I thought she could just snap one for me.  Of course the perfect time came up in a parking lot after a 4 hour excursion that included: red lobster, barely being able to walk, fighting crowds of ignorance to purchase her school laptop (Yes, that’s right little salesboy, I said I DON’T want any anti-virus software.) and a frazzled misadventure through the mall.  You can see where this is going, right?

Here are some previews of the lil’ budding artist’s work…

This was the first photo… and for some reason, I didn’t think this was good enough?

And the horror begins…

What is the first rule of photography?  Always be prepared.

Wait, doesn’t that rule apply to the photographer and not the photographee exceedingly gorgeous model?

Remind me why I am choosing to humiliate myself?

This one might have been all right if I wasn’t squinting at the sun…

I really hope this isn’t actually a picture of me…

At this point I conceded and thought, “maybe it’s not the camera?  Maybe it’s just me?”

HA, Whatever.  So I made her take one more.

This one is ok.  However, now I’ve decided that I can’t use a picture of me sitting in my car as my profile pic.  Sorry Naomi, but you better pencil me in for another shoot!   😀
