playing dress up with her

This first image, the lights behind her, are from my disco ball. The sun hit the ball at the end of the shoot. The photos with the disco ball ended up being of my favorites. Some images below, are fake disco ball I edited in for the fun of it. I had a shoot with this…

just playin’

You know, if one of my parents could photographed me like this, at this age, i’d think it was kinda cool. My kids? They’ve had a camera in their faces their whole life. The final photos impress them NOT at all! Have camera, must shoot. This is my soon to be senior in high school…

The bee people were there for the ‘bee petting zoo’. And people think Birmingham Alabama is made up of straight laced Bible loving people. Here…

Oliver meets the big dogs

tulip scoops

I loved walking on flower petals. Its a bit magical to have flowers beneath your feet.

popping up poppies

One of my favorite flowers. I had to shoot these poppies at high noon (bad planning)…which is never a flattering light for anything or anyone…it means i had to get on the ground to photograph most of these. If i attempted to photograph them from above, the flowers would have been overexposed & the color…

better off red

popping up for spring @ The Birmingham Botanical Gardens…red poppies.
