Wrapped up, tied up, tangled up sisters...

Gabriella and Alyssia were such good sports during their crazy photo session for their Christmas cards.  All of the props were planned except for the bean bag photos which the girls had a lot of fun with!  I had been wanting to do the last two images for some time and they seems like the perfect subjects.  Gabby seemed pretty happy about being taped up as you can see by the last image below.  I have included my favorites from these two silly girls' session for your viewing pleasure!

A charming couple in the country...

This charming couple from Mississippi wanted to do portraits in the country for Christmas cards and in celebration of their soon coming 25th wedding anniversary.  The second portrait below is on the front of their Christmas card which can be viewed on Capturing The Moment's Creative Design tab on our website.  Though it was cold, we were able to get several nice poses that they picked from their short session in the country.  I have included some of their favorites for you to enjoy!

Stunning Portraits of an 8th Grade Graduate!

I saw Kim wearing her red & black outfit at our local church last week and told her mom that her outfit would go beautifully with a background I have set up for a client that I was going to photograph this week. So Saturday we did a short session with her red outfit and a casual outfit that went with the background.   I think she looks absolutely lovely in her portraits!  Here are Kim's favorites from the session for your viewing pleasure!

A laughing horse :)

Ace was not actually laughing, but it sure looks like he was!  I was seated on the ground prepared to take photos of Ace so I could get the pretty blue sky in the background when he started making funny faces at me.  He is such a sweetheart!  Hopefully you get a good laugh from these images!

Janelle, Autumn in the woods, and a pumpkin

This session was probably one of my easiest sessions to date.  Janelle was a natural poser.  She looks so elegant and lady-like in her portraits.  The weather was perfect for water reflections in our pond; however, the sun was still bright, so I had her looking away so she wouldn't squint from the sun.  The willow trees at the pond made for a good prop during a back-lit portrait which we converted to black and white.  The sun was still bright before the session ended which gave Janelle the chance to wear her sunglasses and pose with a pumpkin against the beautiful Autumn scenery.  I have included my favorites from her session for your viewing pleasure....

Autumn Family Portraits and a Red Wagon

We looked forward to photographing Andrew in our new Radio Flyer wagon for his 3-week old portraits.  The session started off with casual family portraits outside during the golden hour.  Afterwards, we photographed Andrew in the red wagon and then a wicker basket.  Andrew let us know that he didn't like wearing his boots while in the basket and when his boots were off, he was quite content.  I get tickled every time I see his cute little toes sticking out of the basket in the image below. While the family changed into their dress outfits, we grabbed a quick shot of Natalie on the rocking horse.  The portraits below are some of their favorites from their session.  Enjoy!

Anna, her horse, and hedge apples

While photographing an all-day event, we "killed two birds with one stone" and photographed Anna's high school senior Autumn portraits.  Anna loves animals and they love her as you can see by her favorites images shown below.  Anna mentioned that she would like a photo with her horse and include their pond but said it was too ugly for a setting.  Yes, the pond looked ugly but it doesn't take much to make a ugly setting into a beautiful one as you will see on her pond image. Anna also wanted a portrait with hedge apples so the last image she is posing in her hedge tree.

I will always remember this session and the love that I got to "capture" during this special day in the lives of Anna's family!
