Children’s Author Portraits…

lkm

My friend and next door neighbor has realized a life long dream in getting one of her young teen novels published. Since one of the characters is a high school photographer, she asked me to look over the manuscript for any photo technical flaws or unrealistic shooting situations. It was a lot of fun getting a first hand look at the writing/publishing process and reading her work. I can’t say too much more about it than that until it’s published, and will have a full update and Amazon link when it does. She needed a portrait for the promotional tour and on a recent rainy Sunday, we did just that. Knowing what it’s for, which do you prefer?

Family Portrait…

We started off this family portrait discussing some props we could use and the¬†ideas just grew from there!. Pretty soon we had a complete artist’s bedroom set on their deck, complete with objects d’art that are special to them. He’s a writer and she’ll be a midwife soon and we wanted the shots to say alittle bit about who they are. Some afternoon light control, Speedlites¬†and a white shoot-thru umbrella lit the scene.
