Kendra's Piggytails

Kendra's mommy tried a new hairstyle on her today, and absolutely loved the piggytails. Kendra wouldn't cooperate to get pictures this morning before coming to our house, so we took some pictures for her mommy to have. The only thing we had that would get her to smile was our cat. Of course, the cat was scared to death of Kendra. I'm sure we would have had better luck with her mom here. I guess we need to invest in some squeaky toys. Nevertheless, we liked the way these turned out.

Alexis and Her Big "A"

We had one more photo shoot in mind to try out on Lexi for her birthday shoots. We found these large 24" letters at Pat Catan's, and bought her an "A" to pose with. She always refers to the letter "A" as "That's my A!", so she was really excited to play with it. She is so easy to take pictures of, and smiles all of the time. We are not looking forward to Lillian's photo shoots coming up for her birthday in May. We cannot get her to stay in one place for any amount of time. Those should be interesting. For now, enjoy yet another session of Lexi!

Lexi at 3--Invitation Shoot

Here are some pictures of Alexis we took earlier today for her birthday invitations. She loved holding her number, and showing it to daddy's camera. The collage at the end is what we put on the front of the invitation. We placed our order with snapfish.com, so we will have to scan the full invitation once we receive them later this week.

The Moon, again

Here's a shot of the moon I got just a couple nights before full. I'm not a big fan of pictures of a full moon because you lose a lot of the detail around the fringe. This here is probably the clearest picture I have ever been able to get of the moon through my 500mm Reflex. I have a Tamron 1.4x teleconverter that is supposed to be here today, so I'm anxious to get out this evening if it's clear and see what I can get with it.

An Amish Sunset

Last week we "chased a sunset". We've been scoping out locations for different sunset opportunities, and came upon this Amish farm. The barn and windmill were perfect subjects to shoot, and the field had the traditional piles of hay, not the round bails you see most of the time. The last picture was taken looking over a field close to our land on Fund Road. The wooden fence posts and bails in the distance looked like the perfect place to pull over. We hope to expand our sunset portfolio as the weather gets better here in Ohio.

Lexi at 3

Here is our oldest daughter Alexis. She will be 3 in March, so we are starting her 3 year pictures to send out with invitations. This first shoot is her with a flight jacket on, for her Papa Cowgar, since he is a pilot. We are working on a few props for her other shoots, but hopefully we can get them done later this week.

Baby Claire's Newborn Shoot

Here are a few of our favourites from our newborn shoot with our newest niece, Claire. She was a little grumpy at first, but after she fell asleep, it was easy getting lots of shots of her. Look forward to watching her grow, as she will be one of our guinea pigs for photography.
