something different

Sometimes it is fun to play with unique ideas and see what the filters in photoshop can do. For the past couple years I have photographed the staff at the school my kids attend, Red Hill Lutheran, and each year they have a theme. This year it was "around God's world". I tried to think of a unique way of showcasing this idea other than the typical tallest in the back, shortest in the front line up. After some research I came across this idea of creating planets with a panoramic photo. It isn't my typical photo journalistic style, but it is definitely cultivated a very unique staff photo.

girls, sweet girls

As a mom of three boys, i love, love, LOVE sessions where I get to do the girl thing. Not that I don't enjoy boys and their energy, but nothing beats girlish colors and accessories! Plus most of the girls I photograph want to be little models, how fun is that! These two beauties have their own individual style that was showcased in bathing suits, sparkly mermaid like dresses and wonderful flapper outfits. From purple hair to a bearded dragon, nothing beats an afternoon hanging with the girls.
