Weekend photo shoot.

This weekend I had the pleasure of taking my neighbors family portraits. I've been incredibly nervous for this- they are our great friends and I wanted to give them great photographs. I've also mentioned that I'm very critical of my own creative work, and photography is no exception. In retrospect, I had fun, and it was a great learning experience. And most importantly, they love the photos!
I did have a few obstacles- the daughter has been at camp the past week and was a LOBSTER. Seriously, her face was so red. But enter my good friend Photoshop, and there's nothing we can't handle. She was also wearing a bright white skirt which really threw off my exposure. I think I did pretty well for my first "client" =). Here are a few of my faves:





This is Cameron's best bud, by the way.


What do you think? Hit me with the truth! I can handle it!

Hey Leslie - Loving the comps on these, great job. On the last one, the boy and dad look a tad gray.

I have an external flash but I don't use it. I don't know and I haven't taken the time to learn how to use it properly. And I'm a skeeerdy cat!
