Winter time is the time for (most) photographers to stretch out, take a seminar and get their learn on. Many wedding photographers don’t have weddings until the spring or early summer, so this can be a nice break. Me? Nah. There’s no crying in baseball and there’s no breaks for Mami! While a short teeny tiny break in say, St. John is nice (har har) a months long no shooting break would literally break my spirit! So what to do? I say it’s the absolute perfect time for educational things like workshops, seminars, retreats etc. and also for the personal project!
I am a lover of these, and have quite a few in my card catalog brain that are in progress. My dearest project, if you can really call it that, is photographing my kids. Yes I actually have two! A lot of people think I only have Georgie, because I photograph her alone a lot. That is only because she is always down for a spontaneous photo shoot with her Momma! My guy Jack has to be in the mood…
So yesterday it snowed! And so… I asked little Geeg to go grab some colorful clothes and head outside with me! Here is what we got!
Camera body used: Nikon D4
lens: Nikon 45mm 2.8 tilt shift
George was pumped for this shot! The thing about Georgie that I love is that she has ideas on what she wants to me shoot! Nothing like a little Momma / Daughter Smash up!
uuuuuh. My little Picklepuss!!!!
Yup. All her.
This was TOTALLY her. I wanted it, I thought it, but felt like it was almost child abuse asking her to lie down on a snow covered log… but when she asked if she could how could I say no?
I hope you are inspired to go on out and photograph just because you can!
YO! This is awesome! MORE!
Yes. MORE! oh man. these are sooooooo, so super duper sweet and cute and colorful and make me happy. G is mini Carla. And, I am glad that she rocked my rainbow bright costume socks! xo
I love this!
It’s so easy to hibernate in the winter, right? Thanks for this inspiration Carla!
Boy is she growing up! As usual your work is so AWESOME!
What a happy uplifting little spirit you have in your life–she is an absolute joy and sooooo cute!
So wonderful to see such a beautiful post about spontaneous inspiration. Gigi is such a sweetie!
