Enjoy Marley | Child Photography Montgomery AL

Marley is a beautiful little brown-eyed girl who didn't readily give up her smiles.

However, we managed to trick her into a few:

Especially when she was playing with the tea cups and didn't think we were watching!

Angela, I have a few more to edit of Marley and Autumn together and then I'll have your gallery ready to upload. Until then, I hope you enjoy this sneak peek!

Enjoy Dogs | 2009 Bark in the Park Part 1

These are just a few of the wonderful dogs I met today ... and their owners are wonderful, too! It turned out to be a beautiful day. I was so pleased to see friends and family there. I took over 750 photos today, so it will take me several days to work through them and take out the blink and blur shots. Just had to grab these few to upload as a sneak peek. To everyone I promised files, just give me a few days to work through them all. Then I'll upload them so you can find your image. Thanks to everyone who was so willing to have their beloved pet photographed. It was just so much fun.

Enjoy Milestones | Baby Photography Montgomery AL

You've already seen these on the blog:

(I just absolutely love that sweet little hand!!)

But here's more...

The 6-7 month age is one of my favorites to photograph. They're sitting up and smiling and loving everybody but not old enough to walk yet so we don't have to chase them around.

This one may not be the best image photographically, but I was wowed by the love on mom's face as she talked to her sweet little baby. It was so much fun to meet and work with them both:

Not enough for a sneak peek ... those will come later. Just a quick peek at some of the very special photos sessions I was able to squeeze in between the rain this week! Can't wait to finish editing them and upload a sneak peek for the friends and families!

Enjoy Bees

I love bees! They are so important to the well-being of our planet that I allow them to roam freely around our flowers and bore holes in our wood :) I've been chasing them around since I became interested in photography and have never gotten stung. They pretty much ignore me. I got up from the dinner table Sunday when I saw a few frolicking among the butterfly bushes and had a great time recording their busyness.

This first set was edited in Lightroom with Nik's Color Efex Pro using the Contrast Color Range and Vignette Blur filters. For the Vignette Blur I centered the blur on the bee and also used a control point to remove the effect form the bee.

The second set was edited in Lightroom using Color Efex Pro's User Defined BiColor Filter. For the top color I clicked in the Butterfly Bush bloom, for the bottom I clicked in the bee, blend was set to 63% and vertical shift to 47%:

They were all taken with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro set on Aperture Priority mode, f/3.2, ISO 800.

Enjoy Spider Lilies

I had to grab the macro lens when I saw this lone, lovely spider lily blooming in the backyard.

It's even pretty in black and white:

These were taken with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens at f/3.2 in Aperture Priority mode. Post processing in Lightroom with Nik's Color Efex Pro plugiin (Ink #5 at 50%) for the top three and b&w conversion for the last.
