One of the things that I really enjoy when taking senior portraits is when they bring along a younger sibling for a few photos. Coming from a family with six kids I know how special the bond is between siblings. A couple of years ago I had a big sister ask for a few photos with her younger brother. Now this was pretty sweet all by itself but her younger brother was probably one of the most adorable little brothers ever. He happily jumped in and did every thing we asked him to do. And when I say jumped in – he really did. No worries about the cell phone still in his pocket ….
This past summer I was asked to share the senior portrait experience with him. Still sweet. Still adorable.
If I could have enough time to do all the editing I need to do .. that would be great. Especially where family get togethers are concerned. Last summer two of my sisters, my soon to be brother in law and several friends decided to do the Color Run in Milwaukee WI. I had never heard of this event until then. I did some research and thought it looked like a blast. It was.
Throughout the course they have various color stations where the runners/walkers are hit with a bit of color. We were positioned at the blue station. At some points all you could see was blue “smoke” and then one person would burst through. And each and every person had a smile on their face. It was crazy. It almost made me want to do it but that feeling passed very quickly. Ha!
If you’re into running/walking and color – then do the next Color Run! Here’s a link for more info. They run all over the country so I’m sure there will be one where ever you are located.
Tuesday: Share Art Photographs or Business Portraits
On this Tuesday I will be sharing a couple of my art pieces. One is a few years old and one was is a newborn. However, both started out as photographs or in the case of the Cog – three. They were hiding but through many layers, filters, brushes and more – they surfaced.
I have my first official art installation going up in Madison next month. I’m kind of nervous but trying to enjoy this step in my career. If you want to see more of my artwork please click on the tab above.
I took this photograph more than a handful of years ago. The wedding was small and intimate and every moment was filled with love and happiness. This photo was one of my favorites of the day because it signified taking their first steps into the future – together, hand in hand.
The second image is what I saw in my head today. Sometimes I just like to play. By the way, the carpet was not blue. 🙂
