I need practice!!!

Earlier this week I mentioned that I was going to take some family photos for my friend who just had a new baby. Lots of family members are in town visiting so we found it to be the perfect opportunity to get some shots of everyone together. I decided to do most of the photos outside on the back porch but since it's screened in, I didn't have a lot of room to work with. Taking pictures is much harder work than it should be. I was trying to get good angles but was met with some challenges. The baby was of course adorable in her little black and white outfit but I know I still need lots and lots of practice. I need more people to practice on. Otherwise I guess my kids are going to get sick of the camera. Here are a few of my favorites.

I think you have a way of including the value & specialness of the moment with the toast, the loving family members, and yes I know the dog has always been a big part of the family, good shot. Nice job! Keep up the good work, I look forward to more any time of anything.

Despite the limited space on the back porch, I think you managed it well! Working with natural light can be quite a challenge, but if you stay at it, you will quickly learn when the best light occurs each day and how to best use it. Of these, my favorite is the one with the dog. Love the expression on the new mother!

Email me at julie(at)julieriveraphoto.com and I will be happy to talk settings and picture processing with you!
