WW- Sunset on the Bay

I happened to be at the beach last weekend shooting portraits. I had to pull over on my way home to capture this. No matter how many days I spend on this earth, sunsets never get old.

Friday Photo Journal, December 12, 2014 - Christmas Card Fail

Hey there friendly people - happy Friday to you! Anyone out there holiday ready? 
I feel SO far behind.  
This week I'm sharing my failed attempts at a Christmas card for our family. After weeks upon weeks of shooting, editing and delivering family portraits for many clients, I realized that I'm really down to the wire on putting together something for our own Christmas card this year. So, I took 20 minutes away from my work and begged the kids to put on some decent, plain (no crazy patterns or big logos) clothes, comb their hair and head to the back yard for a quick portrait. 
Of course my pleas were met with obstinacy and whining.  Just as I expected. 
I don't even like posing them for photos. In fact, I'm not crazy about posed photos in general, so why on earth I would put them through this ridiculous exercise, is really the question.  I suppose it was the time crunch and the (self) imposed pressure to spit out a perfect holiday greeting for friends, family, neighbors, clients...I am a photographer after all. Had I planned ahead or squeezed out more time in my already sardine-canned schedule I would have created something more meaningful, and definitely more natural. 
But, as it was, I got what I deserved. (They are all in dire need of haircuts and no one has any semblance of coordinated clothing. Plus, my laziness in going to the back yard and trying to shoot between the swing set, shed and neighbor's boats....well, busy to the point of dizzy pretty much sums up the result.)


At least they were being themselves.
 I mean the personalities pretty much shine through even despite my worst efforts.
All I can say is - we may go with a graphic card.
And, I love these nuts.

Friday Photo Journal, December 5, 2014

Happy Friday friends and welcome to Friday Photo Journal! This week I have a random smattering of images to share. I am hurriedly trying to finish up my wedding galleries and get through the last of the holiday portrait rush. So, most of my time is dedicated to working. I am ready for a breather and a personal project to two to spark some inspiration. Sometimes you just need a different perspective, you know? I am not a fan of winter, but I have to say, the quieter pace will be a welcome change for a while. Here are the few shots I have taken lately just for fun:

Friday Photo Journal - November 28, 2014

Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I apologize for the late posting. I was spending some much needed time with family and have lots to catch up on. Here is a peek at my little kitchen helper.  We made apple pie for dessert yesterday. She loved helping me bake, but didn't want to eat any pie. She prefers her ice cream with sprinkles. ;) How about you?
