Meeting Adelyn

This weekend I finally had the chance to meet Adelyn Paige.
Adelyn is the first child for my college roommate Sam and her husband Jeff.
Adelyn is 2 months.
She is absolutely adorable.
I wish I had more time to take pictures of her, but she provided me with lots of different facial expressions.

For this shoot I used my 100mm macro lens and my 50mm lens.  I used natural window light.

Thanks for stopping by,

My Baby Brother Is A Married Man!

On Friday, August 5, 2011, I celebrated my baby brothers marriage to Ms Maja N.  It was a wonderful wedding.  My bride looked gorgeous and my brother looked handsome.  We had a blast!

This was the first chance for me to take pictures while the bride prepared for her big day.  Their photographer even let me follow him around and help look for places to hang her dress for photos.  I was a bridesmaid, so I did not get the opportunity to take photos during the ceremony.

I present to you the wedding of  Mr. and Mrs. Jaleel Johnson

I had fun as you can tell!

I attended my cousins Alexander's 8th grade Graduation/ Confirmation Party.  It was held in a really nice park with a lake.

At this point, I still had no desire to practice my photography like I use to.

Earlier this month, I attended my brother's birthday party.  This was the first time I met my 10 month old cousin Kayleanna.  She was so cute.  I just had to take a picture of her.  I also took pictures of other children that were at the BBQ



KK again!


She has amazing eyes!

I started to miss photography :(

This past weekend made me realize how much I actually missed taking photographs.  I went to a friend's house for a christening.  A couple of my husband's coworker bought their kids and I just happened to bring my camera.  When I got home and uploaded the photos.  I was in love all over again.  

Here's why:

Baby Gregory is the coolest and calmest baby I know

Miss Claire

My husband gave her a cookie.  This kept her in the corner by the front door where there was plenty of natural light.   The cookie made the pictures even better

This is Helena.  This is the only picture I managed to get of her during her visit.  She has the biggest cheeks ever

This is my FAVORITE picture.

So there you have it.  This is the BEST of the photos I have taken over the last 3+ months.  Right now I am just looking for people to lend me their children for photos!

So, until my next photo shoot...
