Luke & Jessica

Luke and Jessica braved the cold today for a quick Christmas mini-session.  I was happy with the fun images we got of these two.

The Nymeyer Family

Had a great time shooting a few studio family pictures for the Nymeyer family this week.  These kids are hilarious to work with and our session was over before I knew it.

Christmas light shot

 I was setting up before a shoot today with my lovely Nicole when I had an idea for some fun Christmas light layering.  I found an 8x10 picture frame and wrapped it in standard white Christmas lights, then held it in one hand and shot through it with my 50mm at 1/60, f1.6, 160 ISO to create the image at the bottom of this post.  

You have to try this out, it is so easy and you get images that have that Christmas cheer without adding fake effects later.
Sorry for the rough diagram, but I wanted to show you how I set it up :)

I shot with one studio light for fill on Nicole's face and she sat in front of our Christmas tree to add the layer of bokeh behind her.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.  

If you try this out, I would love to see a link to your photo!

Murdock Family

Nicole and I had a great time this past Saturday shooting family portraits for the Murdock family.  I must say this is the first time that I have shot a family session with a canine member, but Remy was picture perfect for the whole session!  

Thank you Murdocks for a great shoot, you guys made it so easy, relaxed and fun!
