Field of Dreamy Golden Light

My senior session this week was cancelled because of rain.  Of course, the next day, Wednesday, was absolutely beautiful.  I went on a 5 mile walk in the morning with my friend Sarah and it was 66 degrees!  Unbelievable.  Anyway, my senior had to reschedule, so my girls wanted a photo session.  I have to say they are some of the favorite photos I've ever taken.  They exemplify everything I love about photography - beautiful, golden, backlit, romantic and soft.  Does it make a difference what time of day you take photos?  Absolutely.  There is nothing like the hour before sunset for beautifully lit, sundrenched backlighting.  I just upgraded my camera to a full frame D700 and I love it!  I'm a firm believer that you can take good photos with any camera, but excellent equipment does make a difference.  My friend Danielle was nice enough to let me borrow her 85 mm 1.8 lens, and it is definitely on my wish list!  Thanks, Danielle!

When I look at my girls, they take my breath away.  They are unbelievably beautiful gifts from God.  They are loads of fun to be around right now, and I just want to freeze time.

Li'l Edyn's Two Year Pictures!

I thoroughly enjoyed taking Edyn's two year photos.  She is a doll!  Two year olds are hard work and nail biters for me.  I basically just chased her around and snapped away.  I tried to make her laugh by doing some very goofy things, - thank goodness she probably won't remember!  This child should be a model, I'm telling you!

                     I ADORE this one!  Love the light, and that it captures the "story."

    Getting ready to blow a kiss!

I am in love with this one too.
                    I about died when she did this.  Perfect!

       Playing Peek-a-boo!


After we finished, her sweet mama let her run through the sprinklers.
She SOOO deserved it!

    Oh, to be two again!
