She Had To Leaf

Bad pun, I know, but I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to try to bring you the kind of smile that Abby brought us all day on Sunday. Plus, you know, leaves.

When you do a senior photoshoot during these months, leaves are around as props and should be used. Abby used them and it looked like fun while she was doing it.

Supermodel Abby

We got a chance to work with Abby yesterday and had an amazing time. She was easy to work with and she got great photos. I was happy to be the guy standing in front of her and pressing the shutter. Now I get to brag about how she made great photos, but this supermodel did all the hard work.

I hope she enjoys her senior photos because I’m enjoying the edit.

It’s Been A While. Thanks pandemic.

It’s been quite some time thanks to COVID, since we’ve been able to work with people in front of my lens.

Luckily, Misty’s parents Dale and Bootsie agreed to let me see if my shutter finger still worked. So we traveled through parts of Old Louisville and encouraged them to be romantic and sweet. That wasn’t hard at all. I’m glad they let me press the button on the good stuff.

I’ll show you more in a bit.

FLASHBACK: 9 Years Ago

This was actually 9 years ago yesterday, but I got so busy with the day job I didn’t have time to create this post. But I think it’s so good, I decided not to wait for a 10 years ago post in 364 days. Obviously it was made during March Insanity (you know what it’s really called, but the NCAA won’t let anyone say it unless you’re giving them money) and the University of Louisville was doing well.

Most professional photographers will shoot a test or two to make sure the camera and the strobes are speaking to each other the way we want them to. And even though you tell your portrait subject to relax and the test won’t count, sometimes you get magic anyway.

Three Years Ago

Three years ago is a long time. And when you are a portrait photographer during the coronavirus, it seems even longer. I can social distance while making portraits, but I understand why people don’t want to take a chance.

SKETCHBOOK: Lauren & Lindsey Will Sell You A House

Remember the twins Easton and Lucas? Their mom, Lauren, is a Realtor with Paul Semonin. After her family photo shoot, we talked about maybe doing some photos with her real estate partner Lindsey. Misty and I were lucky enough to work with them yesterday. Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: Lauren & Lindsey Will Sell You A House”

SKETCHBOOK: Chatting With Dad

On Saturday, our friends Megan and Jonathon made the short trip to Old Louisville to get some photos with their three-month-old son Mason. As you know, the weekend was sunny but cool however, Mason was an awesome subject and his parents weren’t so bad themselves. Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: Chatting With Dad”
