C & L: Anytime Portraits

Yesterday Ben & I spent the afternoon with fellow photographer friend Chelse & her little ones. It's hard to be mommy and photographer sometimes, so we trade photo sessions back & forth for each other. We spent some time in their backyard getting candids, then set up a backdrop in the garage and used natual light for a studio feel.

Little Miss C was a cooperative little model:
(I notice I have a penchant for composing my subjects to the far right side of the frame lately, haha. But I LOVE the dramatic effect of the blank space!)

Little brother L was so funny trying to blow the petals off the dandelion (like you can do with the white fluffy ones), haha.

When I was looking through the images from the day I was struck by how many different expressions Miss C had, so I created this collage last night to showcase them:

And of course Ben didn't get away without at least one shot of him!

It was a fun day- thanks for playing!!
