This is my second year to offer Princess Pony Sessions and I have absolutely NOT regretted it. They are so much fun. All the little ones want to take the ponies home with them. It is an experience they will talk about for a long time.
My daughter and I visited a Lavender field yesterday. It took a little convincing to get her close enough once she spotted all the bees. She was not too sure about the whole idea but she was a trooper and was so beautiful. Lavender is probably my most favorite smell in the world and everything that describes a lavender plant, really describes this young woman as well. Throughout her childhood, there have not been too many occasions where she would let me take her photos. However, lately that has changed and I have been able to capture her heart and soul in many photos. This is a huge reason I got into photography. My children are growing up right before my eyes and the only way for me to hold onto special moments in their lives is to make photographs that I can cherish forever!
Since the 4th of July is approaching very soon, I thought I would post a few tips on photographing fireworks. Fireworks can be very difficult to photograph but with the correct settings, you can get some awesome shots.
1. Use a tripod
2. Put your shutter speed on the “bulb” setting
3. use a cable release if you have it. If not, you will need to hold the button down with your finger.
4. Try using fstops between F8 and F16.
5. ISO should be on 100
6. Do not try to auto focus, set the camera to manual and focus on the farthest point away from the camera
7. Turn your flash off
I hope you find this information useful. Send me your photos, I would love to see them.
I am finally able to offer Princess and Pony photoshoots. I have spent countless hours planning, having dresses made and bought, buying props, and searching for the perfect pony to use.
This is Princess “Elsa” and Elvis (however, we made him a girl just temporarily)! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect pair to kick off my specialty sessions. This session not only took my assistant but it also took 2 other people to help with the pony. So, as you can imagine, a lot of time and energy was placed to capture such a precious memory. These sessions will continue based on the client and pony’s availability.
If you enjoy seeing these images, please feel free to share my work!
I am proud to announce I will now be offering a very unique photography experience. I have waited so long to make this announcement and the time has finally come.
