This image is my favorite of the year...well.....first of all - these are my girlies....but it's also one of the beginning of a stylized, illustrative direction I've been taking. This was about 4 PM in July and I'm shooting with my Nikon D800 and the 28-75 2.8 lens.
Since starting my photography business, I find I'm taking pictures "just for fun" less and less. And though it's probably pretty normal - it's also frustrating for me.
So last week, when Dahlia had a day off school we hit our favorite mall where normally the atrium area is full of flowers and decor. Nothing...nada....hardly a flower. There were holes in all the raised beds where they had just pulled out most of the flowers in preparation for changing them to a spring theme.
Still, we found a few nice areas to grab a few shots. This is one of my favorites.
I can hardly believe that my little girl will be turning 10 in a few weeks! Where is that time going?

This image (from a wedding I shot in 2012) is far from a portrait image but I love it anyway, mainly for the eye of the little girl behind her big sister.
I was using the Nikon D4 (for the first time) and was standing at the front of the church, really zooming with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens so the clarity is not there. But the church door had just opened and in poured this delicious light behind these two little cherubs.
