Natural Light Child Photography

Photography is my first thought when trying to find something for kids to do. Not that I  don't want them to have fun, but let's face it--I'm a photographer and I will be taking pictures. So, on a recent visit by my niece and nephew, I decided to do something outdoors using natural light. I took my niece to a park near my home to photograph her. While we were there she stopped to take a look at the animals. This little goat got so excited to get attention he stuck his head out to get a little closer.

This is what my niece was waiting for--to pet the horse. She was all smiles as I snapped this photo. It was a beautiful day and I had a wonderful model who was patient and obedient. What more could I want? 

While we were there my niece also had the opportunity to pan for gold. While it was not very profitable, she rolled up her sleeves and got into the chore. I do think she had a good time--I know I did.

A Rainy Day

My niece is visiting and we spent some time in the studio taking pictures, just for fun. This was one of our favorites. I hope to have another shoot with her at a location I had picked out before she came. It seems there is never enough time to do all the things you want to do when company comes to visit.

Fun at the Park

I had an opportunity to shoot some pictures of my friend's children. Their mother, Karen is a good friend and fellow photographer. We took them to a local park and made them pose for us for much longer than we should have in such hot humid weather. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dominic, Jimmy, Spencer and Elle. Here is a sampling.

By this time they had had enough!

Time for a new post!

It has been a while since I posted and no excuse. I could say I was busy, but let's face it, I have been on facebook and flickr. I just don't have a lot to say. So here are some pictures I have taken this month.
