I took this portrait a few days ago, and it’s one of my favorites yet! I love the contrast of Lexie’s silliness with Marissa and Ashley’s sweet, perfect posing. These girls always make me smile, and they’re so fun to work with.

In Search of: The Daily Photo – Shadows and Light

This little girl is my model. I’m not even kidding. I brought my camera along to a family dinner, and stole a few shots. It only took a two minute break for her to come up to me and say, “Will you play a game with us?” I bought in. “What’s the game?” And she replied, “We’re going to have a photography club. Will you be the photographer and take pictures of us?” God, I love that girl. Seriously. To top off the excitement of having her picture taken, she also takes direction incredibly well. It doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous and just the sweetest thing in the whole world (a bit sassy, but that sort of adds to her charm). Oh, and did I mention I’m lucky enough to be her aunt? Yep. I’m stealing this one away for a portrait shoot super soon. Awesome background to compliment awesome niece? Yes, please.

Today’s photo is another from my trip last spring to San Antonio, Texas. I spent an entire afternoon walking miles of the river walk, soaking in the sights. What I love about the river walk is that the character changes as you move through it. In the downtown area, the river is lined with restaurants and shops (even a mall!), but as you move further out, there are less and less people. The centerpiece becomes nature and plants. And every so often, you come across and art installation, like this one, that dresses it up.

If you’ve never dabbled in photography, you may not know that perfecting the black and white is somewhat…ridiculously annoying. Because it’s difficult. Finding the right balance of contrast and such is hard when you’re limited by color (or lack thereof). Yet, I LOVE black and white photography. It has the ability to express so much emotion. So I’ve been focused lately on perfecting my black and white editing and truly finding my style.

Here’s a shot of my nephew, Anthony. Love this kid. So much. He doesn’t often let me capture him through the viewfinder, but I just love it when he lets me steal a shot.

I took this shot on a Sunday afternoon walking along the river walk in San Antonio, Texas. I loved the river walk. Such a beautiful reprieve from city life. How amazing would it be if Vegas had a river running through its center? I’m a sucker for a water feature, peeps.
