Focus


When shooting pictures of my girls I sometimes just shoot.  I don't take the time to think about the picture and actually practice or be patient with the shot.  I actually do this sometimes with clients as well.  I just shoot and shoot and shoot instead of stop look at the image, concentrate and then take the picture.  


I will take 7 or 8 of the same image just to make sure I get a great shot.  I am sick of doing that, I am sick of looking through 8 or 10 images and picking the best one of liking all of them so I edit 3 or 4 of the same image because they are just a tiny bit different.  


I am ready to grow as a photographer and be patient with my model and my camera.  I am ready to take 2 or 3 of the same image and move on.  I am ready to be more productive with the time I am allowed with each model.  


I am ready to go to the next level and have fun with photography.  These pictures shown I actually was paitent and made sure the girls where in focus and the water from the fountains where out of focus.  I did get some bad pictures in there where the girls where out of focus but it is all a learning game.  


I am so lucky that I have little models like these two stunning girls to practice on whenever I want.  I freaking adore this outfit on Avin.  She looks sooo pretty me and that sun bouncing off her... humm!!


Alex well she is crazy and she is always fun to take pictures of.  I love capturing her in the moment and I love watching her be wild and crazy.


I totally had forgotten about these fountains and I forgot to pack her an extra pair of clothes.  We let her go at it anyways and we knew the sun would dry her right up. 


She had a blast playing in the fountains and getting soaking wet.  She could have cared less if she didn't have her swim suit on.  


She is wild and crazy and I love her spunky personality.  She seriously makes us laugh multiple times a day and she is the best big sister ever.  


She is absolutely stunning.  Just beautiful.


I can not believe how lucky I am.  I can't believe I have an almost 3 1/2 year old with the best personality ever.  I can't believe this little girl calls me mommy, mama, mom and her best friend.  I melt every time she tells me I am her best friend.  I melt every time she tells me she loves me.  I absolutely adore talking to her on the phone. 


This little girl... well she is almost 6 months old.  Tomorrow actually and you will hear all about her.  Her blooming personality and a smile that could light up any room.  

I hope you all had a great weekend.
