Your Face Will Freeze That Way

 least, that's what she used to tell ME!

I snapped this of my mom during Thanksgiving dinner. She probably won't like this one, but I think it's fun and shows a little of her fun, playful side.

Up Against A Wall

...and now, back to our regularly scheduled programming!

That is, more of the senior portraits from a couple of weeks ago. Not too many left, but I do like some of these.

Pain - Joy - Frustration

The day I got my new camera, J wanted to stop at the soccer field and play. We ran around and kicked for a while, then I took a break (and a few shots) while he kept practicing.

Can you tell that he is emotional and expressive? Love my son!

When setting up the lights, you have to take several test shots to make sure the lights are aimed properly, the camera settings are accurate, and so on. It always helps to have a "model" to provide that real-world feedback and sample photo.

Thanks Shane!
