These guys were great. No, really. They were. I could gloss over my mistake and you'd never know I messed up. But that wouldn't feel right. It would feel like I was lying. So here goes...
I had to shoot this wonderful family TWICE! The first time we shot down at Loose Park and I used a rented lense. Well, the lense did not behave as I expected. In hindsight, I should have shot everything with my trusty 50mm 1.4 lense, too. However, when I checked the back of my camera, everything looked awesome so I just continued on with the session. The girls were great and we were getting some fun shots.
But when I got home and downloaded the photos, I thought something looked off. But I just scanned through them really, really fast and picked one to blog that night. Yet when I sat down to officially edit them, I realized I was sunk. There was MAJOR sun flare in about 90% of the images. Unfortunately, the rented lense did not behave like my 50mm. So, I had to fall on my sword and confess my mistake. I felt AWFUL.
But this family was so great about it. We decided to shoot the second session much closer to home at Iron Woods Park and they rocked it out! The second session was fabulous. I am so thankful they gave me a second shot because I think it was totally worth it! See for yourself...
Love this one! The girls were having so much fun.
The youngest is full of spunk and sass. Loved it!
The middle daughter was fun and a great model, too.
I adore this shot of all three girls. They clearly love each other and get along really well!
And their oldest? Your typical 5th grader who wants to model but is slightly shy.
I think this family shot is so fun - all bunched up together.
Lastly, this is a typical shot with kids. They love to make silly faces!
