Black and White Indoor

 Natural Light + Child + Fun Prop = laid back easygoing pictures.
 I cannot wait to do my first newborn session, can you tell?
Until then handsome little toddlers playing guitar with their little bare feet and blue jeans will work!

Jenny Kane's Music Class for Kids

 My first commercial work!  I was really very pleased with these considering the lighting conditions were a little difficult.  The room I took the majority of these in was almost surrounded by windows.  That makes good light in the room, but I was always shooting with my subjects being backlit which can be a blessing and a curse.
 I will post more after I deliver these all to Jenny.  She has seen the ones I am posting here.
 My son is taking her class www.themusicclass.com.  It is a really fun and interactive class.  My son loves it!
 Alien ears are a huge fav among the older kids.

 My favorite.  I wish it had been a bit less blurry (fast motion, slow shutter due to lighting), but I still love it!
 These twins were adorable.
This girl is in my son's class.  She is absolutely beautiful!

Non-Human Subjects

 A few weeks before Christmas we went to Pops on Route 66 near Oklahoma City.  I had the camera and I had always thought these bottles in the windows would make fun still subjects.  So, I had to get a few shots.
 Coca-Cola!  Yum!
 The eyeballs on this bottle were very interesting to me.
 I liked the murky yellow of these bottles.
And on Christmas Day some of our friends invited us over to eat dinner with their family.  It was a very fun occasion and their house is just absolutely beautiful.  This is the basket and centerpiece on their coffee table.  I even got some nice bokeh on the back balls.  That is what I was going for.  I could probably spend days photographing little nooks and bits of their house.  I love it!

I Heart Faces Weekly Photo Challenge

This is my entry for the I Heart Faces Weekly Photo Challenge.  I am going to start participating in these in 2011 to hopefully improve my skills even more this next year.  This was one of my favorites from last year.  I love the sweetness and joy in his expression.  Thanks!
