NC State Fair 2010: Part 2 – Livestock...

October 21, 2010
I took a ton of animal photos at the North Carolina State Fair on Saturday and Monday evening. I guess I was trying to make up for the fact that I haven’t been in a couple of years. I’ll be honest…I don’t really know what all of the animals are (outside of their generic names: sheep, cows, goats, camels, horses, ducklings, etc), nor do I have much to say about them, so…enjoy the photo dump. I don’t know why I decided to take a picture of this (what do you call it) going #2. The little kid in me is giggling.This camel is either taking a nap or...

Interview with a Kitty Paw

October 14, 2010
Kitty Paw was not “physically” harmed in the making of this interview and photo shoot (emotionally…maybe). I love having Kitty Paw in my life.

Kitty Paw is clearly “only child” material. Anyways, for those of you that don’t live with a cat (notice…I’m choosing my words carefully...

October 07, 2010
I mentioned on Tuesday that I met up with Tommy and Stacey on Sunday for my second engagement photo session. If you haven’t seen one of my favorites from that session, click here (I seriously think they should blow this up or send out as Save-the-Date cards…something). I learned a few lessons during our session: I am not going to actively pursue a portrait photography career…at least not any time soon. I need a lot more practice shooting people (I am so much more comfortable with still-life).I have no idea how to give people direction – although I don’t care...

You Capture: Togetherness

September 30, 2010
Photographing children is not easy…especially if you want more than one child in the frame. If you’re lucky, they’ll place nice…maybe even read together, but there are no guarantees. This past weekend, we “hoped” to get a decent Christmas photo…this was clearly easier said than done. Emma was the ultimate team player…Frances and Caroline needed a little convincing. So, after a little Doritos negotiation, Emma had a little play fight with Frances. Then, we decided to give our Christmas photo another go. Everyone ready?...
