Christmas Pictures

My cousin Lauren and her family came down to Lexington from Illinois for Christmas. Lauren wanted a few pictures of her adorable girls to put on a Christmas card. Danielle the oldest was unsure and reluctant at first, but soon warmed up. The twins, Lily and Ally, were fun and loved playing with the ornaments off my tree. Here are a few of the best ones...and a few of my favorite outtakes...

So recently I discovered that my cat is a model. No, I'm not kidding. The other day she was laying on my newly made bed with eyes that said, "Shoot me!" She was a great model, she even knew how to find the light and gave me some great angles.

Ok, so I admit that I have become a little bored since it's so cold and I am unable to take as many pictures of human subjects here lately. However, Alia is still a pretty good model, but I'll let you be the judge...

I really do see some Top Model potential here...but mostly it's probably just boredom.

Rachael and Lenny Christmas Photos

Racheal and Lenny were wanting to get some photos taken for their Christmas cards. The only problem here lately is the cold dreary weather. Fortunately they came up with an alternative, which was taking pictures where they attend church at Christ the King Cathedral in Lexington, KY. We were hoping to get some outside as well, however the weather did not cooperate and not 5mins after we headed outside the rain came down to accompany the gusts of wind that we were already experiencing. Despite all this I believe we managed to get a few good shots indoors and we are going to reschedule hoping for better weather!

This is my first shoot where I used primarily artificial light. My new flash was great, but I still have a lot to learn about the art of artificial lighting. Here are a few of my favorites...

Mommy and Me

I had such a great time shooting Jennifer and Jake. Jennifer has been my big sister since I was 10ish. She became a part of my family when we met at church and my parents adopted her and her twin sister. So I had a blast capturing her and Jake, my nephew. We went to Jacobson Park where we played on the playground and fed the ducks! Jake was totally excited about feeding the ducks and we used an entire loaf of bread...and then he decided to feed them the wood chips from the playground. Which they were not as excited about, but it's the thought that counts! Here are a few of my favorites!
