Photo-of-the-Day / 2012-04-09 / Proud Parents-to-Be

April 9, 2012


This is one of my favorite photos from a session I had on Easter Sunday with proud parents-to-be, Rebecca and Shaun.  Shaun is my nephew, my brother’s only son, and the young couple are expecting their first child, a baby girl, on or about July 4th.  

I have been trying to arrange a photo session with them for a few weeks.  We finally took advantage of being together on Easter Sunday for a family dinner at my parents home and spent about an hour outdoors in the backyard and the surrounding neighborhood. 

Each photo session I have had during the last six weeks has presented its own unique challenge, and yesterday’s session was no exception.  It was quite sunny, a little chilly and VERY windy.  I tried to find as much “good” shade as I could and backgrounds that would  block the wind.  I was successful for some of the shots, but not so lucky with others.  After importing the photos into Adobe Lightroom 3 and carefully reviewing each and every one, I realize I need to pay much more attention to the details when posing my subjects.  Each session is a real learning experience!

Below is another favorite!
