Senior Portraits!

I had my last senior portraits with fall colors for this year a few weeks back. Managed to catch the tail-end of the colors around here and got some rocking outdoor shots of this senior girl and supplemented with some studio shots for variety. I had a VERY hard time figuring out which portraits to post on the blog since they're suppose to be "teaser shots" for my website. ;)

My favorite from the outdoor session, she totally rocked some of these shots!

And my favorites from the studio included the use of a "crimson" background and some themed candy sticks.

October Bridals

I had this lovely couple schedule a bridal session with me to get some formal portraits after their wedding.
We met up at one of my favorite locations - Mud River Covered Bridge in Milton, they really wanted some fall color, but with the weather we've had the colors weren't co-operating to well, but the bridge makes for a great backdrop regardless of weather or season.
Here's a few of my favorites from the day:

Christmas in November!

Thought I'd offer a quick little deal for those of you who are interested to get your portraits done early for Christmas cards or portraits to be framed for that special someone this Christmas. :)

I'm offering a quick session for $50 which will include a couple of family poses, a couple of the children and individuals of each of the children and one of mom and dad together. I'll also include a CD with images & print release - which will be perfect to make prints or Christmas cards from!

Only valid for dates in November 2013!

Portraits of Brothers

Had a session with these two handsome young men recently.
I've done sessions with them before and the youngest is usually very shy - but LOOK at these, ain't he precious!? He did so well, I think I've found some new favorites - the brown BG really complimented his complexion too.

His older brother is reaching that age where they don't want anything to do with the cameras, I guess self-conscious which is sad at such a young age. I hope I caught a few character shots of him regardless.

More to be featured in my galleries soon:

Casual Family Portraits

My February bridal couple wanted some family shots done with their dogs as well when we were out doing their bridals a few weeks ago. I haven't had a chance to work with pets too much but it was fun trying and I think we got a few good ones.

Fall Bridals

My February wedding couple came back to do their bridals.
I love bridal sessions, it gives the couple a chance to get away from the stress of the wedding day and have some fun with it, we usually end up with some nice and carefree shots.
Here's a few of my favorites of them:

Niagara Falls

Mini-vacation with the family to the fantastic Niagara Falls.
Had a splendid day up there, great weather, great sights and managed to time it to the illuminations AND fireworks show. Got a great spot on the observation deck for my camera and snapped away. :)

Busy little boy...

This little guy was scheduled for outdoor pictures awhile back...and boy did he keep us busy...constantly on the go.
I believe I managed to get a few that mom loved, its hard getting these little guys to stand still long enough to pose a picture - so this is him just running around and playing.

Night shots around Stockholm, Sweden

I LOVE night shots - usually end up with hundreds of images to sort through, different angels, different exposures til I get the shot I really like.
I thought I'd share some of my home town Stockholm which is one of those towns that just sparkle at night.
You'll see what I mean below!
