Portrait in the Woods

outdoor portrait

Red Deer, Alberta has a wonderful park and path system running throughout the city. The wooded areas provide a lovely backdrop for casual portraits. This time of year presents backgrounds of lush greens making it a great time to capture the essence of summer in a photography session. A summertime portrait will be a welcome addition displayed in your home as winter approaches (remember how the snow arrived October 13th last year!).

Little Flower

"little flower"The last few days I have been shooting a bit in the studio. I have been concentrating on a bit more classical child portraiture. A look that is a little more timeless. The real challenge is to shoot children that are all dressed up but to make them look natural. This little girl is a princess at heart, which makes the task quite easy. She actually told me she is going to be a fairy princess when she grows up; pretty exciting stuff!

I am a big fan of black and white. I love the simplicity. In this portrait the little touch of color softens the portrait and adds to the sweetness of the little girl.

Outdoor Portrait – Family of Four

In today’s post I am sharing a portrait order that I have just completed. This was an afternoon portrait in a local park. Afternoon is often a nice time to shoot younger families, as a shoot time after nap-time can provide for happy, rested children with smiles.

The parents wanted a relaxed session with images that were informal. They wanted to capture their kids “being kids”.
