Outerbanks Family Photos
This was a quick session I did with some friends while vacationing in the Outerbanks last summer. It was crazy windy and a little chilly, but we had fun. A few of these are film. I love how the coral clothes look with the blue sky and ocean. And I love any guy that will wear coral too. Dad is about 7 feet tall*, so frankly I think he can do anything he wants. It was amusing photographing him because for some of the photos I was literally holding the camera above my head as high as I could and just aiming. Click, click, click.

(*Okay, 7 feet may be a slight exaggeration, but I think he is 6’7.)

gorgeous, jody! lovely colors and processing.

sneak peek: my new favorite time?

arlington family fall session

A quick sneek peek for e. I was worried it would be too cold the morning of the session, but e thought we could pull it off. She was right. I think morning sessions are my new favorite. The light is so beautiful and the kids are so happy. Of course, this beautiful family only made it that much better. I know it’s hard to get up at the crack of dawn, but it’s so worth it. We finished this session with some quick shots at home–which I also love (like you haven’t heard that before).

Hi Jody, thanks for your comments on my blog. I have been a long-time stalker on your blog and I just love that first photograph on your website of the little girl looking down the hill at the house. I’m wondering what she is thinking and the look back at the house is just so beautiful. Keep on creating your art, you inspire me that’s for sure!

cheryl jacobs nicolai workshop photos

These are just a few photos from the Cheryl Jacobs Nicolai workshop that I was lucky enough to attend with nine amazing (and not to mention fun!) photographers in Denver, Colorado. Compared to how I normally shoot, I didn’t take a lot of photos at the workshop because I was more in awe of watching CJ work. I figured I could take photos anytime, but when would I be able to watch CJ work. I brought my film camera, but I don’t think I took one photo with it–it was too intimidating being around CJ and clumsily trying to use it. I felt like such a poser. That’s CJ in the last photo photographing her son.

Poser schmoser! Jody, you’re *amazing*! Knowing how excited you were for this workshop, I can’t wait to watch how you translate what you learned and apply it with the JodyM spin we know, love and wait with bated breath for! xo

This is AMAZING Jody! I love everything about it.

This is fantastic work Jody. Forget the flusteredness. This is fantastic work. The girls are absolutely gorgeous. I’d have made up a session just to shoot them too ;)

You know I would be interested in setting something up! It would go something like this.. you fly to England, I stand infront of the camera, you take pretty pictures. Simple! Oh if only it was! Anyway, as always, these are absolutely STUNNING! I don’t know why you are worrying as the film shots are beautiful! I LOVE the one of them laying/sitting on the ground near the bench in the grey top/shorts outfits. Gosh that image is amazing! I can’t wait to see your next styled sessions! :)

Oh my, Jody! I love love love them. Everything from your composition to your styling. They are divine! Now I need to plan a trip down just so you can do a session for my family!

Shelley - October 13, 2011 - 11:15 pm

Stunning, just stunning, Jody. I can’t get over how beautiful the film is. I see no frustration in this shoot at all…It looks as if it should be in a magazine. I love the compostion, styling and scenery. Love your pininterst board :) Can’t wait to see how your shoot turns out.

Kim - October 13, 2011 - 11:32 pm

What an ordeal to get through before the shoot! However, you totally rocked it. Beautiful, Jody.

Karen - October 15, 2011 - 8:06 pm

Lovely photos :) Your pinterest board reminds me of one of my favorite shoots by one of my photographers Sheena. See that here.

(I hope that is okay to include that link here, I just thought you might like it).

Jody, these are perfection! The grace and beauty that came out of a wild situation is a pure testament to your talent and skill. Love, love, love!
