A Little Fun in Downtown O-Town

The last couple of Sunday afternoons, we have found ourselves out and about with our cameras in the extra hours of late afternoon and early evening light. We love to find new places for outdoor portrait shoots and have found that the going rate for models at our house is pretty cheap! Lately, I have gotten to be the photographer with Brandon being my model. Here is one of my favorites from this weekend's shoot!

Still Booking Summer Weddings

This is an image of the Groom and his Boys that was taken at Kiesel Park. The colors in the picture really pop and the flash draws your eye directly to the groom. These guys were great to work with and they were real troopers throughout the day.

War Eagle

The weather on Wednesday was really nice so I decided it was time to go to the Campus of Auburn University and take some images that I could hang on the wall.

The View From My Kitchen Window

This afternoon's sky was absolutely incredible. I have been home from work this week thanks to this little thing teachers like to call Spring Break and while catching up on dishes, movies, and laundry, I noticed this view from my kitchen window. I proceeded to do what any aspiring photographer does and grab my camera to enjoy the show. This is apparently what we get when we are blessed with a cloudy morning followed by a sunny afternoon. So, if you were driving down highway 169 today, maybe you saw this beautiful sky, and in case you aren't on Spring Break and were trapped at work just before 5 pm today, you can enjoy the view from here. :)

A Great Day

As our last post stated we spent the day on Saturday shooting a wedding at Kiesel Park here in Auburn, Alabama. The weather was spotty, and at night it got frigid. But there were times when the sky was beautiful with the puffy clouds as well as some really sweet moments that we were able to capture. We would like to thank the bride and groom for giving us the chance to share this time with them. Here is an image taken with my new fish-eye lens, it might be my favorite lens. Really creates a great perspective. This is during the wedding, if you can't tell. Don't forget to look for us on Facebook and twitter. It was a great weekend with some great family and fun.

Wedding Day!

We are so excited about shooting Jami and Darren's wedding today! This couple is so deserving of a perfect day. Since we have the privilege of being their friends and their photographers today, we feel an extra special connection and anticipation. Having been blessed to travel to Africa with Jami three times, we have seen truly seen what a beautiful person she is. We can hardly wait to see what a radiant bride she makes this evening! As for Darren, we know that many prayers were offered for someone like him to sweep Jami off  her feet and he has met and exceeded each request. We look forward to sharing images from day one of their married journey! Congratulations, sweet friends!

1st Year Experience

Baby season is in the air and with that comes lots of calls to take baby pictures.  Which is great since most weddings aren't until summer. We are always ready to take some pictures of a "bundle of joy". We spent part of our afternoon last Saturday with some friends taking pictures of their little one. His beautiful nursery lent itself to some great indoor pictures. We look forward to meeting them again in about three months to see how much he has grown. Don't forget that we are still offering half off our sitting fee as well as giving everyone an opportunity to win some money with our babies and children contest through our photo lab. We are also beginning to promote a baby package we like to call "The 1st Year Experience" with an initial sitting fee of $100.00. As usual, the sitting fee includes a disc of all your pictures resized to print 4x6 images on your own. If you continue out the year with three additional sessions (6 month, 9 month, and 12 month), we charge $50.00 each session, but at the end of your baby's first year we will give you a proof book, valued at approximately $150.00. The proof book will include photos from each of the four sessions. We look forward to taking pictures of your Baby.

Blue Skies and Green Grass

This amazing photo was taken last May in Washington State. We had the privilege of doing a little sight seeing in Seattle and its surrounding areas before going on our Alaskan cruise. Scenes like this one seem to be around every corner and out every window in Washington! We literally stopped on the side of the road and waited for the cows to pass by to capture this shot. We love this picture and hope you do!

Kiesel Park with my Lovely Lady

If you know me, you know that I love to play with my pictures. Most of the time our turn around time on portraits is pretty quick, simply because I cannot wait to see what comes off the camera. I recently started playing around some with a few recent images that were taken of Amy. As many of you know, she is the easiest model for me to get, so she gets lots of pictures taken of her. This image is really tweaked and my hope was that it would look like a real B&W film image.

It's the Simple Things

After any kind of photo opportunity, we enjoy choosing our favorite images of the day.  Family, dear friends, beautiful children, string music played from the heart, lantern lighting, and GiGi's cupcakes made this wedding one that stands out in our memory bank as a favorite image in itself. The bride's hydrangea bouquet in the swing is so simple, yet so special. Now hydrangeas and swings are two of my favorite things, along with post-its, fuzzy socks, straws, and chocolate chip cookies. But when I stop to think about it, those are all things that might not be that special to anyone else, but to me, they make all the difference when they find their way into my world. This picture is at the top of my favorites list because of its simplicity. Enjoy!

Bring on the Sunshine

Doesn't the sunshine just make you smile and feel a little more friendly? In hopes that all positive thoughts about sun and sand will bring some warmer weather our way, we are posting this fantastic beach photo. Brandon took this picture at a stunning beach wedding last summer. This great couple could not have ordered better beach wedding weather and had an absolutely gorgeous day.  Here's to thinking warmer thoughts....

Auburn Baby

As most people know, Auburn fans love to dress their children up into the cutest little Auburn outfit that they can find. This is a great little picture of a young Tiger Fan. I know that all Auburn fans appreciate this, and many of us probably looked like this at some point or another. This cute little thing is even named after Auburn. I know that her mom and dad will be so proud of her. She was one of the most well-behaved babies I have ever been around. Don't forget our Baby and Children contest, as well as half off our normal sitting fee. War Eagle.
