This is a Christmas card one of my clients sent this year, from a photograph I took of their beautiful daughters.

Here’s wishing all of you a happy and healthy New Year!

Recently I had the great pleasure of shooting with these dynamo young ladies, Marta, age 8, and Margot, age 12. Before we go any further, be sure to click on each image in this post. The pictures will appear LARGER  and clearer! This works on a phone or tablet as well.

Margot and Marta are budding actresses and needed headshots for their auditions and play programs. But the images will also be used for a holiday card and gifts for the relatives – and also a surprise gift from Mom to Dad of a print in a glass block for their 15th Wedding Anniversary. You remember – it’s glass, right?

The girls were great fun to shoot with. They could handle anything I threw at them – such as: “Margot – Quick! look to your right and give me a Cat-that-Ate-the-Canary Look!”

We shot about 300 pictures over a couple of hours. Mom and the girls picked about 90 images to consider and had a tough time narrowing them down to 20. “We like them all!” That warms my heart to hear! And I had a tough time narrowing the 20 down to 7 to put in this blog post.

I love Marta’s multi-colored braces that suit her personality to a “T.”

Hoping to be able to photograph these girls every year going forward. Will be a treat to see them grow and develop.

Marta looks up to her big sister – well, at least some of the time. Margot takes care of her, some of the time – but is focused straight ahead – literally and figuratively.  By the way, I’m just making this all up. But these are some of the impressions I get from looking at these adorable and expressive faces.

At the Beach with Christina

Regular readers know that I’ve been working on a continuing personal project with Christina, pictured here, to photograph her over a period of 10 weeks, in a variety of settings.

If you missed some of the earlier blog posts, see the blue links to the right, with Christina’s name in the title.

Last week, we went to a local beach cove and took pictures from about 5pm to 7pm.  With some clouds around and the sunset fast approaching, the light changed every few minutes. So, it was necessary to continually adjust camera settings as well as the strength and angle of the flash. I get spoiled in the studio where I can instinctively set and control my light for hours on end! But this evening was good practice for staying on your toes as conditions changed.

For this shoot, I was ably assisted by my fabulous new 12-year old photo assistant, Ridgely. I used a small flash unit in most of these images and Ridgely held the light for me. But she also held “flags” (you have to look up what a photography flag is!), did some fashion styling and was generally a big help all around. Thank you, Ridgely!

Christina and I are coming to the end of our project – sad to say! I plan to pull together a few of the images from each of our shoots into a video slide show. Stay tuned for details. Christina – you’ve been a joy to work with!
