A sneak peek - and a wish for 2011!



As many of you know, I love antiquing photos and giving them that vintage look - but still with a modern touch. I think that style looks especially wonderful when printed onto canvas for a gallery wrap. What many may not know is that I also love typography, especially when used as a primary graphic design element. Combine those, think BIG (oh...20x60" or so), and imagine custom wordart that (literally) spells out important places, dates, events for a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art. Vintage industrial wall art....hmmmm....tell us what you think...

We'll show you more in a few days, but in the meantime, this is our New Year's wish for all of you!

Sisters

Today, we had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful newborn named Eliana. Last year we were able to do the same for her big sister - Hana - who is now 18 months old. Eliana had a few definite ideas about getting her picture taken....

We got a few like this (with Mom Chris)...isn't she gorgeous?
But we got more like this...sigh...she just wasn't having it!

However, big sister Hana entertained us royally - a total model in the making! We had two tutus - one for Hana and one for Eliana. Well, Eliana didn't like her's too much, but big sis LOVED her's. She skipped and danced and spun around and flounced (yes - we have actual flouncing pics)...she just totally worked it.
Then, she discovered Eliana's newborn-sized tutu - and decided it was a great hat...it does make quite a statement, doesn't it?


(so sorry Hana - this is going to be serious ammunition for Mom and Dad when you're sixteen!)

She showed her serious side too - and while Mac was getting the lights set up, I grabbed some natural light shots...this one just screamed to be processed in black and white...


What a wonderful photo shoot - I hope that these pictures are treasured forever and will be looked at and smiled at by these girls' daughters and granddaughters and great granddaughters someday. That is why we love to do this!
