    Here are some photos that I took last week. I decided to use the natural window light and just added a fill flash as needed. Shot with Canon 10D, fixed 50 & 70-200.

    The little girl was 3 and a bundle of energy. I didn't try and pose her, just let her do what she wanted.

    To see the full shoot, go

    They had the most stunning eyes, exact same shade of green

    I love the emotion that you capture in your photography. You can see the bond between the two of them. I think you could give Anne a run for her money if you started shooting babies.

    Thanks guys. And Corry, that was all her Mom's idea...as were the window shots. It's nice to work with someone who has their own ideas of what they will like...makes for happy clients :)

    Great shots Allison, lots of emotion.

    I love the window light but I'm not a big fan of the shadow lines in the last two...makes me think of a prison rather than the happy emotion that the pictures otherwise portray.

    Yeah, it's hit or miss with those lines. People either love them or hate them. Mom was pretty pleased with the photos, but she wanted something very different than most. With other clients I would have just closed the shades and set up the lighting.

    Hahahahahaha....there needs to be a different term for "shoot". It sounds so awful in that context.

    Thanks for the other comments as well :)

    I enjoyed those, thanks for sharing; that little girl is very distinctive. #1 & #3 are my favorite.

    1.4 or 1.8? Just curious... thanks again

    Wow, thank you for all the comments. After owning a business for nearly a year and a half it was this shoot that made me truly feel like I can call myself a photographer. Glad you enjoyed them as well!

    Alison, Great work. Love th last one. The shadow of the blinds reminds me of a lazy day at home with the kids. Excellent capture. No 3 is also one of my favs.
