I Think I’m Hooked…

A few weeks ago, I thrilled to be given the chance to do a photo shoot (my FIRST!) for our dear little friend, Emily.  She was about to turn 6 and I hoped it would be a nice gift for her (and her Mama) to primp up and take some photos.  It was sure a gift to me… Miss Em was the polar-opposite to the “subjects” I am used to shooting (my dirty little boys) so this was PERFECT.  She was excited, cooperative (yes, Becky, she was!)

This is a bit picture heavy… because I’m so happy to share!     Emily1 Emily2 Emily3 Can you believe the one above and the one below are the same girl?? Talk about a GREAT subject!!

Emily4 Emily5 Oh, okay… and the one above and now the one below??  Yup.  Same little girl.  I don’t know what prompted the below capture, but so many words come to mind when I look at it… dreamy.  Gorgeous.  Six?? Hardly six

Emily6 Emily7 I DO know what prompted this one… I told her, “Let’s take one for Gage and Cooper…” and this is the pose she gave me…

Emily8 I shifted position and embraced the challenge of backlighting… my camera was searching for something to catch focus on, and settled on this stalk of hay.  I had to acknowledge its effort, and snap the image… turns out I kinda like it… a lot. 

Emily9 The backlighting gives a total different feel to the photo… hazy, dreamy …

Emily10 Emily11 Above and below are two different edits of the same photo.  I’m still trying to find “my style” and while I typically find myself veering toward clean, classic edits, sometimes, vintage funky ones are in order …

Emily12 I have SO. many. more. photos of this session, but blogger would surely close my account if I posted them ALL. 

So, I’ll leave you with this… our final image of the session…

… but hopefully not our last…

Thanks for the practice, Em (and Becky!)… it was priceless…
