A Picnic

IMG_7842w

Just as I promised here’s my first post of pictures with my new camera! A couple weekends ago I decided to take Sarah and Emily on a picnic to a gorgeous park I visited once before. When we arrived we scouted out a good place to have our picnic. We almost stayed in a little grassy area, but decided to keep looking when Sarah walked over to this place, and I’m so glad she did. It was a perfect setting; situated among the soaring trees with the sunshine creeping through the leaves and Spanish Moss dangling from the branches and we had a wonderful view of the lake. I grabbed some shots as Sarah and Emily unpacked the picnic, then we sat down to eat and talk before we ventured off to get some pictures.

The above is one of my favorites. So much joy in one picture…and that’s one thing I love about photography. Capturing the joy in a moment. Smiles and laughter are some of the best things to photograph.

And our session concludes with them dancing off into the trees :)

You may have noticed I have a new page under my header titled “Clients.” This page takes you directly to my Pixieset gallery where I will be sharing some of my latest work (I’m still working on filling it up :). I’m using Pixieset as a way to deliver pictures to my clients so they can simply go in and download (and share!) their pictures at any time. It’s also an easy way for any new clients to get a quick and easy look at my work. So go check it out! (I love it.) As a reminder, you can also view my work and past blog posts by going to the “Photography” or “Writing” pages under the header.
The weekend is almost here (yay!). I hope yours is great :)

Summer’s coming slowly around here. The weather is at a nice place where it’s not quite summer temperatures yet, but it’s just hot enough to know summer is on the way. While the temperatures are finally rising from this long winter, the ocean is still freezing. Sarah and Emily have already been swimming and insist that it’s not too cold, but I can hardly dare to put my feet in the water. Hopefully the water will warm up soon because I can’t wait to finally get out in that gorgeous blue water.

Stick around the blog to see some new posts coming up soon of pictures I've taken with my new camera! I bought a Canon 5D Mark II used through B&H Photo, a great company to buy new or used equipment through. They inspect all used equipment themselves to ensure it is like new. I got my camera about a week ago and have absolutely loved it! I've had a couple opportunities to use it and I can’t wait to share the pictures with you.

Happy Wednesday! :)
