some favorites

fall is going strong right now.
and by strong i mean cold as all get out.
i mean, holy mackerel, i'm bundled up at my computer as i type this.


here are some favorites....just posting so the three people who read this blog (my husband, myself, and the one random person that just happens to find me while they're clicking along.


the cowan family

i recently shot a family of a photographer friend of mine. to say that i was nervous is an understatement. my skills lie in the hobbyist realm, where i run around after my kids looking for that one (maybe two or three) shot/s and call it a day. i'm quite content there.

my friend yasmina, who is an incredible photographer herself (seriously go to her website now and behold the amazingness...i'll wait) offered a photography exchange where i would shoot her family and then she would return the favor and shoot mine. because i refuse to get in front of my own camera and have maybe 3 shots of me with my kids...i thought it would be a good idea to do the exchange. i mean, it would be nice if my kids had at least ONE reminder of what i looked like. right?

i was nervous. i mean, i do not take clients. i shoot my kids and the occasional kid that's playing with my kid. that's it. to add to the pressure was the idea that she would actually use these shots in her home. in. her. home. my palms started to sweat just thinking about it.

she was amazing though.

she picked the location, the outfits, and man did she and her husband make it so stinking easy for me. her, her husband, and her adorable daughter are all sweet as pie, with model good looks.


best. one-time. session. ever.
