Professional Wedding Portraiture- 3/4 Profile

•November 17, 2008 • 1 Comment

Our most recent assignment for our Professional Wedding Portriature class is a 3/4 Profile shot of a bride.  Kelsey so graciously agreed to model for me after I suddenly had a find a replacement for my original plan.  These were my two favorites- they each have a very different feel though.  One was bright and cheery while the second is more contemplative and moody. I like them both and am still trying to decide which I am going to turn in…


Meredith and JP’s Wedding

One of my dearest friends got married recently.  I have known Meredith since I was 4 years old and I was honored to be part of her wedding.  The wedding was a blast but I had a hard time reminding myself that I was a bridesmaid and not the photographer.  Here are a few of my favorite outtakes…

For our digital imaging class we were asked to create a panoramic photograph. I decided to try to capture at the NC State Fair in Raliegh.  So while I was there I came across this roller coaster and decided to use it for my pano.  I attempted to get as many roller coaster cars in the shoot as I could, as in real life the cars are not that close to each other.  Overall I am pretty happy with the result.NC State Fair Pano

So my friend Megan finally decided to get some belly shots of her beautiful prgnant belly before Julia arrived.  Megan is one of those gorgeous pregnant women that is only belly- you know the kind all women hope they will be when they are pregnant be few actually are.  I was happy to take the pictures for her and here are a few of my favorites…

Babies, Babies and More Babies- Part II

As part of our professional portraiture class, we had to do an in studio portrait of a child.  Well this time around I asked my close friend to bring her seven month old son, Ethan, into the studio! What a time we had! Ethan was an angel throughout the entire time and my friend, KC and I had a blast in the studio! Thanks to you both for your help! I had so many favorites it was hard to choose (of course I am a little partial to this little guy).  Here are a few that I decided to put borders around and a couple other favorites…

Grayson Highlands

During my fall break I was able to escape the lowlands for a day to head up to the mountains.  I have always heard about how beautiful Grayson Highlands was- but I had never had the opportunity to go up there.  Well I definitely picked the perfect day to go- the weather was a beautiful fall day and right in the middle of peak leave season. Here are a few pictures I took while I was there, including an HDR.

Babies, Babies and More Babies

•October 29, 2008 • 1 Comment

Over the past few years I would say 75% of my female friends have had babies. This comes in very handy as our next few assignments in Professional Portraiture relate to children. For our on location shoot, I visited my friend Becky and her 1 month old Caroline. Caroline was an angel and did fantastic throughout the shoot! I was pretty please with the results overall. I decided to do a collage of three of my favorites as my final project to turn in.
