October: the free 52 project

November 04, 2016  •  4 Comments

Well, October has not not been busy.  

I think most families and photographers can relate to that!  I've photographed 3 events for Buffalo National River this month to culminate their National Park Service Centennial events for the year, which has kept me sitting at the computer in the early morning hours to edit and process.  I'd rather get up at 3:30am to work than stay up late...that's just how I've always been!  So, I finally switched off my workhorse 24-70mm lens and put on my little 50mm freelenser towards the end of the month.  Here's the few that I captured:

And just a few days ago, I did a family session for some friends and freelensed quite a bit...


I feel pretty fortunate when people I know, ask me to do their family pictures.  It's not something I feel super confident in doing yet, that's why I've kept my clients to friends.  Posing people is not my forte, I really just love telling compelling photo stories.  So, I try to combine those two during the picture session.  I feel like I'm practicing on them, but still providing their family with some professional quality images :)

And that's my thoughts on life for this morning.

Please hop on over to April Christopher's (of Little Trees Photography) blog for the month.  I have an extra special place in my heart for her work.  Although we've never met in person, I feel like we share a similar bond for how we live and photograph.  

Thanks for taking the time to stop by :)


I'm finally getting around to reading through all of last month's posts! I am so in love with these. The tiny frog, the leaf in the hair - yes <3 And I think your shoot for your friends turned out amazing, I can really feel the connection there. I also struggle with posing and prefer a much more authentic look to my photographs, and I love the feel of these.

Also, thank you for your kind words! I have an extra special place in my heart for you work too, you took the words right out of my mouth. :)

These are beautiful! I love the fall colors and tones! I especially love the one with your daughter raking leaves in that gorgeous light with that beautiful bokeh! My goal is to freeness more at sessions! I bring my 50mm every time and then get shy about it. But, when I do those are the images I love the most!

I love the freelensed session Terra-it brings such a dreamy and unique perspective!
