Blog Stalking

A lot of photographers I blog-stalk like to give tips every so often about how to shoot a good photo, where to find the best lighting, etc. I don't really know that I've acquired all that many tips for my followers yet and even if I have, I definitely haven't organized them all in my head yet so instead, I thought I would offer you a short list of links to some of the photographers that I blog-stalk on a fairly regular basis (read: every single day).

Kristin Rogers

Hanssie Trainor

Jasmine Star

Jessica Claire

Amy Wenzel

Marlin Munoz

I sincerely believe that every photographer - even the very BEST photographer - is constantly learning and gaining new ideas and inspirations! In fact, I think that's what makes the best photographers. And what better way to increase your learning than by studying other photos? Right!

And because posts are just WAY better with a picture, I leave you with a little of Reagan past:

New Backdrop Examples

I realized after I posted my last entry that many of you can probably not picture in your mind what an image would look like with those backdrops, so I thought I'd take a few pictures today of my kids to show you what I mean! Well, and really, they are just so cute - I love any reason to photograph them! None of them were really very compliant, but we got a few cute ones.

I realize purple isn't really a boy color, but hey, if I can get two of my kids to sit still at the same time and actually SMILE....I'm gonna take the shot! :)

New Choices!

It's been on my mind for a while, but tonight was the first time I actually got to the store to look for it. I've seen some studio shots done with patterned backdrops and I absolutely love them! So I swallowed the lump in my throat that screamed "TOO BRIGHT!" and bought a few pieces anyway....because I just know that I'll love them when they are in a picture.

Dear clients, if you book a studio session with me, in addition to the standard black and white backdrops, you will now be able to choose from these backdrops too:

Oooo, aren't they so pretty? I love them. :) So book away! You know you want to!

Baby L | Indianapolis Baby Photographer

I have to say that this kid is one of the most adorable, well-mannered babies I know. Today I had the privilege of babysitting him for about an hour. I warned his mom that I would most likely HAVE to take some pictures of him because he's just so cute. Here are a few of my favorites:

(Yes, that last one used to be in b&w, but I decided I liked the color image better.)

After Christmas, I found these awesome shoes for $3 at Walmart.
Who cares if they're really for summer?
