I love playing around with macro images of flowers. And I think Cyclamen blossoms lend themselves to this, with their curved lines and interesting shapes. What do you think???
The flowers on a Cyclamen are some of my favorite photographic subjects! Their beautiful petals create appealing curved lines and their almost upside down blossoms make for interesting images. What do you think?
The fall is a popular time for kids and family portraits! Take a look at one of my favorite subjects…. I just love taking her picture. Here she wasn’t exactly cooperating but the light from the window makes a gorgeous shot and sometimes looking away from the camera makes a portrait interesting.
A few more shots from yesterday’s rainy morning that I thought would look good processed in black and white. I just love the way the water drops stand up on the edges of the petals. If you look closely it’s amazing what you can see.
A few shots of my adorable great niece while she and her mom were visiting last week. She was busy coloring so I thought I’d snap a few quick shots of her while she was being still. Notice what happens when a 2 year old thinks they are supposed to “say cheese.” They really don’t get the point! My son tried explaining to her “cheese isn’t about yelling the word, it’s for you to make a nice smile.” Still so adorable even when she’s yelling out “cheese!” 🙂
What an adorable baby boy I got to photograph last week. He was so handsome and incredibly precious, especially because he is the new grandson of our dear friends. I just loved photographing him and his mom. He must have missed the memo where he was supposed to be sleeping during the shoot, though!! Welcome to the world sweet boy!
On Saturday, we attended the baptism of of our dear friends’ new baby grandson. It was a perfect, beautiful day to drive to Boston and celebrate with our friends. The ceremony was lovely and of course the baby is absolutely adorable and incredibly precious. Events like these always make me so thankful for wonderful friends and family. Here are some shots from the ceremony. We wish little Alfred Anthony a long, healthy, wonderful life.
And happy birthday to his namesake, Anthony Ryan, who was so special to each of our family members. We will have you in our hearts forever.
I couldn’t help having some of these images of this old, stone-lined village processed in black and white. There’s something about the feel and mood of black and white that matches this location for me. And finally, one of the entire village, which gives a bigger perspective on the place and how unique it truly is. Last post on this place!
An interesting tree all alone on a local beach.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph my friend’s daughter and husband, who are expecting their first baby next month. It was fun photographing her all around the city of Boston and photographing them both on a beach just north of Boston. The morning on the beach didn’t have the sunrise we had hoped for, but the gray skies lent themselves well to black and white images. I think she looks gorgeous, actually they both do, but I love that big belly!
