Sugar and Spice

Child, Portrait, Baby, Toddler, Girl, Monochrome

What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice. That’s what little girls are made of.

This is a portrait of one of our granddaughters.  We were blessed to have an opportunity to spend a little time with her and her parents recently.

Of course, whenever we have the pleasure of visits with any of the grandchildren, I usually try and grab a few photos. After this visit, as we were driving home, I told my wife I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to get any good photos of our granddaughter.  When I downloaded the day’s images to my computer I was delighted to find this gem.  This is the only decent image I captured of her on this visit, but it’s a definite keeper.

Early Adoration

Baby, Child, Portrait, Infant, Eyes
At this stage, it’s hard to gain and keep their attention.  I was able to captivate her…and she captivated me…for this brief moment.

This image of our newest grandchild was snapped on a recent, holiday weekend visit.

At this age, there’s not a lot of going on.  She’s just beginning to notice activity around her, just beginning to smile.

Bright Eyes

On a trip to Green Bay’s Botanical Gardens, hidden among the foliage, I happened upon this precious, delicate flower.  I believe, among all the beauty of the gardens, this was the best image I captured that day.

It’s taken me some time to post this photo because it took a lot of work to present what you see now. What you don’t see, from the original, is a triangle-shaped shadow that ran from her eye, across her nose, to her lip – created by the leaf near her eye. You also don’t see the tripod and jacket on the ground that was protruding from behind her head. Obviously, this wasn’t a planned, posed shot, but an on-the-fly capture.

This is my friend, Lindsey.  She has the personality to go along with those dimples and smile.

The Girl with Golden Locks

This photo was mostly an accident…something I just stumbled into.  Didn’t realize what I had until I was browsing through a batch of photos from the day.  The sweet, little girl in the big field grabbed my attention.

I cropped the original, tweaked the contrast and exposure, enhanced the colors, added an effect to soften the foreground and background…and found an image I love.

If it appeals to you, by all means, share it with others.

Curly Top

For me, the most difficult part of photographing people is capturing an authentic natural expression. Much of what I end up with is nice, but lacking the true essence of the person I’m trying capture.

I’m pretty pleased with the way this one turned out.

Fashion and Friends

What little girl doesn’t like “dress up” and stuffed animal friends.

I’ve had the opportunity to focus on a couple of cuties the last few days.  This one loves to pose for the camera.

Portraits have not been my strong suit…but I’m working on it.
