The weekend was filled with lots of laughter as Me Ra and Brian shared their experience and knowledge with us. The first hour or so was spent introducing ourselves and learning why each of us was there. It was wonderful to hear each other's stories. I was inspired by the 20 ladies as much as Me Ra and Brian. Each one, so passionate about what photography means to them. One of the highlights of the workshop was the hands-on shooting. On Saturday, we photographed moms with their babies, and on Sunday it was families. The moms and families who volunteered to be our models were so wonderful. It was a total blast doing these shoots.
This little guy was toddling over where Me Ra was demonstrating a family shoot.
Jillian was a sweet, tiny preemie.
She had on an adorable little pink dress.
These kids belong to the family that my group was photographing. What a cute pair they were!
They were so great to work with - they willingly did anything we asked them as we went from spot to spot.
I hope they had as much fun as we had that day.
The kids teased and tussled each other making natural subjects showing their personalities.
And even when we asked them be goofy, they willingly got into it.
For the baby shoot, we photographed several moms with their babies.
All the babies were so sweet, each with their own personality. This is Keri and her sweet little Tessa.
The moms looked so beautiful, they were just glowing.
I imported the photos into iPhoto for some editing. I love how easy it is to change the contrast, exposure and saturation.
By the end of the afternoon, little Tessa was sound asleep. I think we tired out with all of us excited to take her picture.
These are just some of the photos I took - more to come with some of the other wonderful moms and babes!
