End of Summer Stuff

Standard

Whew! Long time since the last post. After our exceptional vacation we’ve been so busy. One of our things this summer was to make a decent senior picture for Kelly. This involved evaluating the weather, the time of day, the shade, angle of the sun, the location and Lord knows what else. We have this down to a semi-science by now. Lots of locations with several props in these.
Be warned. Excessive pictures follow.

After all the lake pictures we thought we needed some good ole Arkansas woods content.

Great lighting this day.

With some sturdy trees…

And lots of underbrush…

Cooper, of course, is our ever present helper, companion, best bud. We don’t do anything without that little guy. We loooovvve Cooper.

And… in the midst of summer bloom, I had to get some of that vibrancy on film.

This was just the bottom of the photo mountain. Take a gander at this sampling.

Lots of props… Have to have one with her gun… a real country girl.

We can’t forget the girl with her guitar either. Have to say she looks like a natural and of course there are ton of these.

With another close up. She hates my close ups, but I love ’em and I’m the one with the camera. Call me the camera boss.

Not to be forgotten… a vehicle as a backdrop.

More guitar shots. Love the late day light with her on this pasture.

Great smile!

Have to a ‘come hither’ shot to counter the ‘leaving’ shot.

And another one of those cursed close ups. I didn’t touch these up, the light is funky, but I love that smile.

The last backdrop is our old tractor. Finally found a decent use for the old guy. She really dresses him up!

One last shot.

After flicking through all these, do you have any idea of my pain? An hour and a half of juggling the light and a prop here and there started taking its toll on my pleasant demeanor. Somewhere in these hundreds of shots is a perfect senior picture – Kelly’s call. I love them all.

Thanks for sharing in another small tidbit of my little piece of heaven. You can see it around my girl. All shot on our farm.

Love,
Jeannene
