Art Faire & two family sessions

Next Saturday is the Millbrook Music & Art Faire in downtown Clayton. I’m going to have a booth to sell my fine art pictures for the first time in my life! What a huge step. So I’m super busily working to get everything together ordered and put together by next Saturday! Luckily I’ll have electricity and can bring my computer for hosting a catalogue of prints not readily for sale and special orders of large sizes. The event is from 10am to 6pm. For more information click on the photo or here. The link is to a specific town blog post. There should be other posts with info too. I’d love to see all of you local people there! They are supposed to have quite a few interactive things for the kiddos. Either just before of after I will have all of the prints available online too! Look for the link soon.

I’ve been bad about putting some photos on here lately. Here are two large family sittings I had a lot of fun doing!

This place was very stinky with the rotten corn around the side of the silos. Daniel said to us, “We better get out of here because it is starting to not smell as bad!”

I love this spot and shot. Really I’m beginning to understand why I like buildings and such more then ‘green’ places. There are so many more posing options and places to sit! It’s easier to make people look good.

This was the furthest out I could get with the sun and I’m still really happy with how it came out. It’s amazing how your personality comes out when you jump off something. The ladies on the left are all a little nervous and the three on the right are in heaven. Love it!

This old train depot is so cool. The weathered wood works well for both big and close up shots.

Again, maybe my new favorite spot. Definitely where I’d like to have our family photos done.

This is why I never delete a test shot onsite. It turned out to be the best shot in the spot. Danny was helping me onto this 2 1/2 inch window ledge (no kidding!) when I took the test shot. I love how he is looking down at them and the variety of expressions.

Alyssa who is one of my senior reps.

The only boy. I imagine he feels a lot like Guy surrounded by sisters. Guy has one brother though to go along with the 7 sisters! I so love that Guy has a large family!!!

The wind picked up her hair perfectly.

The braid was a nice touch.

My hat fit this kiddo so well with all her girly curls.

Little Miss Bridget entertains my kids in church all the time. It keeps both her and them occupied nicely.

This is one of my all time favorite family shots. Ever!

And I love the couch (or chair in this case) out in a field look. It’s the first time I’ve done it and was really happy with the day and the results. I think some of the photos need a little more editing before they can be printed big so the family looks a little brighter while keeping the clouds the same.

We thought it was cool to have four in focus flowers in front of the four kids. They were eating some snacks to energize them for the rest of the shoot.

The old house with the newer chair work so well together.

Ian really is a wild man and needed some wild man poses to showcase his personality.

Kristen loved this one because she always does this move to fix her hair.

I love me a photo of a naked baby. They can only do it for so long before it just doesn’t work anymore.

Each kid got a shot with each parent. Here are just two I really liked.

This just shows off the sisterly relationship and bond.

I love it when you share!
