Sometimes it’s just fun to try something new and learn a new technique. Of course, I could never try this out while on assignment… there was a lot of fumbling “ums” and “ers” involved… things that need to be second nature and just weren’t yesterday! So with two lovely volunteers… Skye and her boyfriend, Joel… I’ve added a new thing to try with my couples!
BERKLEY MICHIGAN BABY PHOTOGRAPHY
One of my favorite things to do is to see my wedding couples again and this time, we met three years later to shoot a new family portrait with their 7 month old, Owen. Not only is he THE most adorable kid on earth… he smiles on cue (and for me!) letting me get tons of great shots. He’s just about the easiest kid I’ve ever shot (my own included). I’m not saying he loved every minute, but one Cheerio in an hour and a half was pretty much all he needed to keep a smile on his face!
MACOMB COUNTY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Sometimes it’s best to watch a wedding through the eyes of children and Dennis & Melissa’s kids gave me the perfect opportunity to witness their wedding through their eyes. They have a close bond with their kids, but also with their parents. I loved their infectious joy at the whole celebration of the day. Their kids were happily and easily simulated into the day. Sam, the two year old, made it down the aisle not once, but twice down the aisle solo (with a little encouragement from mom and dad). Tyler’s total disdain for his tux provided some great photo opportunities and so did the flowers various bridesmaid left in the pews and steps during the ceremony. Ever the playful group, we stopped at the George George Memorial Park to play on their playground (the bride and groom’s request) before heading to the reception. Fun group, fun couple and fun photos!
