Jeril-Lynn at Night

My good friend Jeri-lynn and I went out to the center of Wayne to take a few pictures to let me practice with different forms of light and just to have a different kind of photoshoot.  It was great to get a sort of "darker" themed photoshoot other than the typical bright portraits/weddings/engagements.  So we went out and had a blast and froze our little fingers off! Check em out!

I like how the car provided very nice back lighting!  :)

I LOVE blurry cars and the lights they make.  It's pretty awesome.

My now typical focus on something in the fore-ground and let my client be blurry.  I think it's pretty sweet!

She's such a beautiful model!

Big Changes

To all my faithful (though silent... comment people!!) followers other there... I have BIG changes coming up in the next few weeks!

  • First- as you all can see- I have slightly revamped the blog to look a little more classy and a little less "thrown together".  I'm happy with the changes.  What do you think?

  • Second- Due to my VERY faithful, very awesome and very very amazing friend, Amy- Kara Loomis Photography (KLP) will be launching a website in the next week or two!  A real live website! :)  I can't begin to thank Amy for her amazing and dedicated work and I'm excited for the launch!  

  • Third- I was invited to a networking party and because of that- I had to whip together an unconventional business card!  It's a 5x7 printed picture of some of my work.  I did it really quick- so I'm in the process of redesign.  So hopefully it will be nice to have something to hand out and bring in more business! Mama needs a new laptop! ;)

  • Fourth- thanks to my co-worker and friend, Stefanie- KLP will have a wonderful new logo and photo-stamp due to her amazing graphic design skills!  I'm blown away by her amazing skills and can't wait to have my logo look a bit more classy!

  • Fifth- I was given a copy of photoshop!!!  yay!  (yes I've been editing without photoshop up til now!  Shock and awe can now commence!)  Just kidding.  But yes-I've been given through a generous donation, the C3 version of photoshop and have been giddy with joy since I uploaded it today.  The only problem is that my laptop is on it's last dying breath.  So we uploaded it with lots of prayers and finger crossing.  I definitely need a laptop soon, within the next couple of months or else KLP will be at a stand still.  I'm saving up my meager savings as a contract admin to buy a Mac- but it will take very long.  So I've been praying and doing a lot of trusting of God to keep my current laptop alive and to bring me lots of new clients so I can afford a Mac! So tell  all your friends about me!  :) :)  (but if anyone has a Mac or laptop that they feel they just HAVE to donate- I won't be opposed!!)  ;) ;)

Anyways, all these new things are just INCREDIBLY exciting and I am astounded with how amazing my friends have been with helping me with the launch of this little business!  Business of course is a bit slow... so I'm just trying to get the word out! 

Photo-wise- keep a look out of a portrait taken of my good friend Jeri-lynn at night in the heart of Wayne.  We had a lot of fun but cut the shoot short due to one cold night!  Photos will probably be up by Monday - so check back!

Had an engagement shoot tomorrow- but had to reschedule due to the frigid conditions that tomorrow promises!!  yuck!  So hopefully that will take place next weekend.  February 7th and 8th will be two engagement shoots to the winners of my facebook contest.

Amanda Portrait

I had one busy day yesterday!!!  Three photoshoots all done before 4pm!!  Phew.  To say I was exhausted is an understatement!  I started out at 10am with Mike Pouch- an excellent composer.  The moved to Genevieve in a dance studio, and finally my good good friend, Amanda.  Please scroll down further for Genevieve and Mike's shoots!

A die-hard Harry Potter fan, we were excited to find this little guy.

Genevieve Dance Portraits

Genevieve and I spent a few hours in her dance studio taking some dance shots.  Here are the results.
