A Photography Theme Blog Circle

This month’s Creativity Project theme is “Feet, Hands, Bodies, Wrinkles, Age”.  It definitely takes the prize for the longest theme name EVER!  But it’s also inspired me to pick up my camera and shoot something new instead of digging into the archives! All these adorable body parts belong to a special little newborn girl that I had the privilege of photographing over the weekend.  Only two weeks old. She has a lifetime of growing and changing to do, but for now I think I can stare at these precious little details of her two week old self all day.

To continue the circle, please be sure to stop by Erica Lee’s blog for her take on this month’s theme.

Pam Doughty - So much precious sweetness in one post! I know the parents will always treasure these captures. The only thing as certain as the cuteness of a newborn is the rapid rate at which they change!

Sixties Styled Shoot

I guess I can credit Mad Men for my love affair with the 60’s. The hair, the makeup, the CLOTHES… Seriously, what’s not to love? At least once or twice a year, I like to do a “just for fun” styled shoot where I can play around with some new shooting techniques and get a little more creative than I would normally on a commissioned session (I played around with some off-camera flash for some of the shots- see if you can spot it in some of the images!).  This shoot was organized alongside my wedding business partner, Mindy of Freckles and Dimples Photography.  She happened to get us exclusive access to Martin Tower in Bethlehem, PA – the tallest building in the city and which was once the headquaters of the Bethlehem Steel Company.  The building is currently vacant (and has been for awhile), but since it has the mid-century architecture and design elements, it was the perfect place for our styled shoot! Here are a few of my personal favorites:

West Long Branch, NJ - Family Photography Session

I immediately loved and bonded with Jackie and Eric when I met them for the first time for their maternity session. They are such a beautiful and fun loving couple.  I didn’t think it could get any better than photographing them….and then enter this handsome little guy!  He literally stole the show during their family photo session!  Even when he was pouting, I couldn’t help but smile at that adorable little face. We went back to the same park where we took their maternity photos for their family session and recreated some of the images we took the first time, so it was extra special! One of the things I love the most about being a photographer is that I get to be a part of the different seasons of my “families” lives.   I see them through their teens, weddings, pregnancies, parenthood and beyond! And I so enjoyed being able to capture this new and exciting chapter for the K Family!
