View All The Fun Of An Extended Family Photo Session

It takes a village, right? Well that is certainly true with a family photography session.  The Auger family was full of fun and I loved their willingness to help make silly faces and gestures behind the scenes to create great smiles and laughs from the youngest family members. There is so much more to a photo session than that one perfect group shot, I love to capture the in-between genuine moments that highlight the entire photo session experience. My style for this 1 hour family photo session was a mixture of both portrait and lifestyle photography and by the time the session was wrapping up I felt like an honorary member of the family.

Behind the Cover: July Issue Holl and Lane Magazine

On July 1st, Holl and Lane Magazine will launch the 8th issue and I’m so excited that one of my images was chosen for the cover.  The image choose was captured many months ago and I wanted to share some of the behind the scenes images of capturing the cover shot.  It was around 30 degrees and my model, Eden, did such a great job managing outfit changes and direction.

Children’s Action Photography: Tips and Inspiration


Action photography is my speciality, considering my sports photography background, and the honest expressions of children are the most fun to see during an outdoor shoot at the park and/or private yard.  Their personalities really shine through and is why today’s post is all about capturing those moments and providing you with a little inspiration.  Here are some tips to think about when you are trying to capture movement.

First:  Get Low!

When you are eye level with your subject the image will instantly improve.  You will noticed in all the images below, I am at least eye level, or below, with all the children.

Second: If they are having fun, it shows!

When children are naturally running, going down a slide, digging in a sandbox, their personalities comes out.

Natural light will help in “stopping the action” in a image, but having gear that can handle fast shutter speeds helps tremendously.  These images were taken with Canon 5D Mark III and shutter speeds are over 1000.

Behind the Scenes: FitMom Editorial Photo Shoots

Over the past few months I have been working with Holl and Lane Magazine on various projects.  One such project had me working with a mom of 3 under 3, yes you read that correctly.  We had numerous photo shoots to support future editorial articles for the magazine and this week on the blog I wanted to show behind the scene images of what it took to capture these images juggling kids and organizing each shot.  Each shoot had its own challenges, like weather and kids running in and out of the shoot.  We ended each shoot exhausted, but happy with the results.  A few of my favorite editorial shoots are shown below.  Check out issue 6 of Holl and Lane Magazine and see more from our collaboration.
