more on “this” later.
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.)
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).
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.
