A Special Portrait Session

While I was out of the studio today Ashley had a sitting with a very special celebrity. We are going to be doing a lot of photos for him during the "Dickens of a Christmas" festival downtown on December 5th so we thought a little "test shoot" would be a good idea. Santa took a quick break from all his Christmas preparations and flew down for a couple of photos. They came out pretty good.
Remember that he will be back on December 5th from 10am - 3pm if you would like to come have your photo taken with him or just let him know what it is you would like for Christmas. The cost for a photo with Santa will be $5 and you will get the photo right then and there. All of the proceeds from "pictures with Santa" will go to a Christmas charity, we are not yet sure which charity.

A Full Senior Sitting

I have been thinking for a while about putting an entire senior portrait sitting online just to give everyone an idea of what a whole sitting was like. I did Derek senior portraits recently and was really happy with them. I don't even think he has seen the outdoor ones yet. He picked a really nice location for his outdoor. Something special to him and that makes all the difference. The cool airplane didn't hurt either!

Swine Flu and Airplanes.

Okay, that might be a bit of a weird title, but strangely appropriate. I missed Friday due to a light case of the flu. I apologize to the appointments we had to reschedule. But trust me, you did not want to be around me that day. After a quick trip to urgent care (which I surprisingly was not swamped with sick people) and a round of Antibiotics, I am feeling much better today.
My Saturday started out with a really fun sitting even though it was outside in the cold and rain, which is not good for a person recovering from the flu. I drove to Delphi to a small landing strip and did some photos for Derek with an airplane. A Piper Cub (which is a very cool 2 seater). Here is one of my favorites. I was trying to give it a bit of an old-time feel and it worked out great. Derek...if you read are going ot LOVE these photos when you come pick them up.

Fall is here...but few good days for photos.

Well, we always look forward to fall and the photos we can do with all the fall color. this year it seems that we have had just enough rain to spoil a lot of outdoor sittings. I guess that is the bad part about planning for fall photos in Indiana. You never know when fall is going to show up or how long it will last. On Tuesday we did get a couple of chances to go outdoors. Here are a few photos from the fall so far.
