So this set of photos comes from a trip my father and I took way back in 2011. We had to stop at his friend's house in Delaware and on our way home a road caught my eye. It looked like no one ever travels down it anymore. So of course we had to check it out and what we found was completely unexpected.
We stopped to take a photograph this road to nowhere and suddenly a car comes driving towards us from the direction the I was pointing the camera. The women asked if we needed help and we told her we were fine and were just taking some photos. She told us to follow her because she has an old barn we could photograph. So we did.
We found out that is she the care taker of a large piece of land. She lives in a 100 year old house and the property has a barn, a cemetery, a tower, and a few other historic houses.
After a two month hiatus, I found myself spending the afternoon at the Animal Adoption Center in Lindenwold, NJ last Friday. Nineteen awesome doggies.
Spring will be arriving soon. Warm weather, blue skies, and NO MORE SNOW! Until that happens I will be filling my weekends in March with lovely spring mini sessions such as this one here of Brycen, who turned 7 months old the day of this session.
Brycen is part of our Grow with Me plan. I took his newborn portraits, his 3 month portraits (Christmas Themed), and now his 6-7 month sitting up portraits (Easter Themed). I will also be to doing his 1st birthday/Cake Smash session in the future.
It's been over a year since my last maternity session and I was super excited for this one. I played around with using fabric like all of those amazing maternity photographs I see by other photographers. The fabric I used is actually a sheer curtain scarf.
This was also the first time I tried to tackle back lighting. A hard task when you only have two lights. I used one on the right to light the background the best I could and one on the left to light the mommy-to-be. I had to edit the background in PS to make it completely white. What do you think?
