gina & clahra & lily|portsmouth family portrait photographer

back in october, i took off for 2 weeks.  i went to florida for a week to spend time with my friend gina and her two little girls, and then i went on to m-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i to visit bek-the-sister and josh-the-brother-in-law and baby-nephew liam.  i already showed you liam in all his scrawny cuteness, but i finally finished up with the photos i did with gina and the girls.

(pro of having a photographer for a friend:  cheap as free family session…con of having a photographer for a friend…she processes the photos at her leisure.)

we just went for a quick walk around the neighbourhood…hitting kids moods right is…a very…delicate…art, but we lucked out with some AMAZING light.

this is baby lily…who makes the very best faces.

and here’s clahra (yes, that’s spelled right)…who, instead of answering affirmatively, “yes”, says “right”.  it’s really adorable.  “clahra, are you hungry?”  “right.”

rocky the dog came with us on our walk…he was a pretty regal (and incredibly well-behaved) dog.

you’ve always gotta get the one requisite family portrait…this one took some doing.  (i won’t give everything away, but, uh…let’s just say PS helped me make sure everyone’s attention was on me.  or nearly so.)

clahra was NOT having it…i’m sure you see why i am happy with “sort of vaguely looking in my direction”.  😀

and finished up with a few rounds of “mommy-is-the-merry-go-round”.  (nb:  there was no photoshopping done to this image… :-D)

please contact me if you’re interested in a family portrait session!

I LOVE the “everyone vaguely looking at me” shot. Gorgeous light, gorgeous models, beautiful eyes.

I’m loving the direction you’re going with your processing lately. Very clean, very fresh. Great family session, too.

Amazing eyes 🙂

Am I the “nb” you are referring to in your comment?:) I would not have thought you used motion blur for the last picture. It looked like the art of slow shutter speed combined with clever panning. All in camera baby…the way it should be 🙂

[…] my good friends roger & gina live there. you’ve seen gina and their blue-eyed daughters before, but now the fam is all together (!!), so we took the opportunity to do a photo session celebrating […]
