Babysitting Photo Shoot

Meet Kendra, a little girl I babysit on occasion for a best friend of mine. We still have the studio lights set up in the dining room, so we took the opportunity to take a couple pictures of someone who wasn't family for once. She loves peek-a-boo and the bright flashes. Now we are contemplating looking for more backgrounds, so hopefully we will get more test shots soon with some new looks.

New Lighting Test Shots

Here are some test shots with the new lighting kit we just purchased. We played around with the backgrounds and lighting positions. Our dog Athena posed for us, and we also put our girls in their Halloween costumes for a few shots. We are looking forward to using the lighting kit a lot more, especially since it's getting cold and dreary here in Ohio now.

Charles Mill Dam and a Leaf Pile

The first picture is from Charles Mill Dam on our way home from Malabar Farms last weekend. When we got home, we raked a pile of leaves and let the girls have some fun. The last two pictures I actually took. It's rare for me to get good photos :) We've played with the new lighting kit last night and today, so look forward to some test shots with the new lights!

Malabar Farms Visit 2

On Sunday, October 19th, we took another trip down to Malabar Farms to take a look at the fall colours. We met up with Luke's brother Jeremy and his family. It seems the peak for fall foliage was already over, but the girls had a good time meeting up with their cousins. We still have more pictures from the day to edit and post, as we had a busy day once we left from the farms, so look forward to those soon. We are also anticipating a new lighting kit to arrive tomorrow, although Luke will be out of town on business for a couple of days, so it will be a few extra days before we can start playing with that. In the meantime, enjoy the shots thus far!

Brandywine Falls

Here are a couple shots of Brandywine Falls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We drove up after Walsh Farms to check out the fall scenary. The last shot is of our girls sitting on the rock ledge on the way down to the falls. We had an exciting Sunday this weekend, so check back soon for more pictures of some fall fun!

Walsh Farms

Here are a few shots from last Sunday at Walsh Farms. We met up with friends and their son Kaden. They picked out pumpkins and ran through the straw-bale maze. The weather was amazing for being October. Everyone had a blast!

Backyard Fun

Here are a few shots taken in the backyard over the weekend. Notice our future photographer. Alexis loves mommy's little camera. We also had some fun at Walsh Farms and Brandywine Falls on Sunday. Look forward to those pictures in the coming days.

Cleveland International Airshow 2008

These were taken at Burke Lakefront Airport during the airshow on Labor Day weekend. We actually submitted them on CafePress to make a calendar out of them. Believe it or not, someone actually purchased a calendar! (and it wasn't family or friends) Maybe we should make calendars an option when we set up the website. Next year we will be better prepared for the airshow, Luke just got a 500mm lens as an early birthday present. Enjoy the photos!


Zoo 2008

Here is a compilation of zoo photos taken this year at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest and Akron Zoo. These will be available to purchase as prints once we get our website up and running. We will let you know when that happens!
