Blue is cool and refreshing.

I'm going to finally make it a habit to blog. I know I keep saying that, but I get so caught up with the photos that I forget to tell the story in words on here. It's been a fairly busy summer for the studio. I have a few ideas on how this should go, so stay with me. I've got lots to share!

We have tons of spring props!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I've gotten to do a couple of family pictures for the holidays so far. In the next few days I will subject my own family to this practice as well, because my mother has decided we need to do it every year it seems. Small price to pay, I suppose, for use of space in their garage for the studio.

Here's just a taste of what I've been up to. I have so many props I haven't begun to use them all!

Hooray for more seniors!

Just when I think I'm finished I end up with more! I love it! I did two sessions on Saturday for a Kardinal and a Bulldog. They both wanted studio only which made the session simple enough. Here are a few favorites while I continue working on them.

October has been busy!

October is the deadline for most school's seniors to get their picture in for the yearbook. Late September and Early October sees a lot of senior portrait work for photographers as that's when most people begin thinking of school photos. I recommend all juniors to think about getting their portraits done in the summer if at all possible so that you have a lot of time to decide over which picture will be sent in and that you don't have to deal with it while dealing with sports, homework, and other senior year stressors!

Still, one of the most fun times to get portraits done are while the seasons change. Fall brings a lot of great texture and color - if you can get out while there's sun and not rain. Rain can make for some pretty unique pictures, but I know it's not ideal for most! I'm not a fan of being wet and cold, either!

I had the priveledge of meeting some of the class of 2012 this month. The last few sessions involved a SoHi Star and twin Kenai Kardinals. Each had a distinct personality and it was fun - and sometimes a challenge - to get their personalities to come through. But once they did, oh boy! Seniors continue to be my favorite sessions!

Aside from portraits I also attended the Medium Schools Football Championships and watched Kenai regain their Champion title. Congratulations to both Kenai and Homer for a game well played!

Sadly, with my sports lens still out being serviced I was unable to shoot the event, but I did take the smaller lens and shot some of the drumline's work. I'm currently editing those pictures so we'll have to wait and share those on another day!
