Playing in the Sand

While shooting a few informal portrait/beach photos for a friend, I noticed the daughter of another friend was enjoying playing in the sand, unaware of anything else going on around her.

I didn’t even have time to compose on this shot; I wanted it to be at her level, so I had to focus first and then hold the camera low and level; I love the purity and carefree spirit is seems to show.

Senior Pictures – A Foray into Portrait Photography

I am extremely excited to be doing my daughter’s senior pictures this year!  We planned on doing two to three different locations, with different themes and clothing.  I’ll admit I am new to portrait photography, so it’s turned out to be a new experience for us both.  So far, I’m loving the results!  The above shot is a sample from our first shoot.  Of course, I’ll be posting the full set once it’s complete!
