I had a photoshoot this weekend with a sweet little one year old girl named Caroline. She was a real trooper braving the bees next to the azaleas and watching grown people with cheerleader routines. The weather turned out great for the shoot outside and then we packed up the gear and headed to the studio. My thanks to Caroline's parents for working so well with her and for holding reflectors during the shoot! Overall it was a fun day and we got some fantastic shots!

Max has been a really great sport about letting me shoot him several times a week. I m glad he has gone along with it, because it really helps me feel like I can work with any child, if I can shoot pictures of my own kids. To quote famous child photographer Sandy Puc, "Id rather pull out my own teeth than take pictures of my own kids." It also gave me an opportunity to try out a new light meter.

I went home for the Easter weekend. My family lives on the Island of Cape Hatteras and its been 6 months since I visited last. I had a great time eating, eating and eating some more. Im now too fat to hold a camera, so Im shutting down my business until I get back to 185 pounds. lol It was great seeing all the kids, picking up eggs at local churches. Had a great time seeing all my family. I did get out last night for about an hour and a half to take this shot of the lighthouse. I almost froze to death and there was what sounded like a dying raccoon in the woods a couple of feet from my tripod. The second shot you can see was Max playing around with bubbles after getting them in his Easter basket. Enlarge both shots for best detail. What a great Easter! I just wanna thank God for sending his son Jesus to die for all of us sinners.

I think I am slowly getting Isabelle used to sitting on the posing stool. It takes several props to get her to sit still or smile. With kids you have to work very quick and have things all ready to go, before you get them in the studio. She actually snuck out and came in before I was ready to have her, so I probably lost a couple of minutes of attention span. I recently got some new gels for the studio lights and was testing them on Max. They are very vibrant as you can tell. Anyway, if anyone is actually reading my blog...please respond in the comment section. I would love to hear from you. God Bless you all! Kirk

Putting the kids to bed at night leaves me about an hour and a half for photography, before I hit the hay. I got my trusty glasses out(my obsession as of late) and tried to think of ways to add as much color to them as possible. I think I accomplished my mission.
