Wiseman 2013

December 8, 2013

One of the things I love most about photography is watching families grow…



Smithe592: Thanks for another wonderful article. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I'm on the look for such information. fdceekgacaeekagb

Kate & Ryan- Fall 2012

December 3, 2012

I was so excited to learn that my nephew’s traveling baseball team was coming to city ( more like a 4 way stop… but I digress) near me!!!  He plays for a select baseball team that has God at the center of their efforts and hearts, which is such a refreshing thing to see in these amazing young boys. Check out their sponsor and coaches’ organization which is inspiring and uplifting: Baseball His Way.  My apologies in advance for the number of pics of my fabulous nephew :)  I just could not narrow them down AND I NEVER shoot sports photography so I was having fun playing with my rented 70-200L IS (note: RENTED!!!!  I wish I could owned this bad boy but more on that later…) so on to the show….

Now for those who would like my thoughts on the  70-200 f/2.8 IS II:

1) Dislike: It was way slower than I am use to, however I am usually closer the my subject so my 5D MkII finds focus fast.  This lens “searched” a little too long for me to get the actions shots I expected, and 200 is probably the minimum focal length needed for this type of shooting.  The focal length is not the lens fault, but  having never shot b-ball… I had no clue 200 would be so limiting on shots.  But it was my first rodeo with this lens so I would give it another go-round before once again claiming prime is the only real way to shoot ;)

2) LOVE the natural vignetting this lens produces. Gorgeous.

Hoping to rent the 100-400 next time around when the Mission come this way again :)

A Few from the Cruise

April 8, 2011

It was a tough decision, but I decided not to take my “big” camera on the cruise with me.  I knew there would be amazing scenery all around that would be picture perfect but I did not want to 1) Worry about something happening to it if I left it in the room   2) Lug around my camera w/ my multiple lenses 3) Worry about something happening to it if I took it off the boat … SO I went with my Canon G10 ( which is an amazing little camera! but I am sure they are on G15 now LOL) PLUS I have the underwater housing for it so it was a win/win choice.  I really did not take my camera around with me much because I wanted to just soak in the moment, relax,  and not worry about getting a great shot.  So here are a few snaps from my 7 days in the Bahamas…

Two Sweet Brothers….

November 17, 2010

I can’t believe this is the third time I have had the pleasure to take take pictures of these two sweet little boys.  We had a great roaming around and finding random items at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens. To end the day, we headed over to the old ( and no longer in use) Grapevine  trains…. and it could not have been better weather!!  So on to a little sneak preview…

Guess Who’s 3!!!

June 14, 2010

I’ve said it before and I will say it again… this girl is just a natural in front of the camera.  I first got to meet her two years ago when she had just turned one, the again when she was two, and now she is three AND a big sister!!  I just could not have ask for a prettier morning in the garden or a happier child to photograph.

I must say the best part about being a children’s portrait photographer is not only do I get to meet some of the cutest children, but I also get to watch them grow.  I am truly blessed to have such awesome clients whom I can consider friends :)

Sophia

June 12, 2010

It seem like it was just yesterday I was designing Sophia’s birth announcements!  Now she is a girl on the go, but still just as sweet and cute as can be ~
