A season for photo ops

With Memorial Day officially behind us, we are now right smack dab in the middle of prime photo op season. There are so many events coming up over the next few months: graduations, weddings, showers, family reunions, vacations, I could go on and on. Documenting these special occasions should be easier than it seems to be for most people. 
A few years ago, I read a couple books by Nick Kelsh that totally changed the way I use my camera. "How to Photograph Your Baby" and "How to Photograph Your Life" have some of the best user-friendly photography tips I've ever seen. They are practical and so easy to pick up and start using right away. "Your Life" has better tips for those tricky group shots at various big events and holidays, and "Your Baby" makes an excellent shower gift for that expecting mom in your life. I can honestly say that without Mr. Kelsh, some of my favorite photos of the peanut would just not exist.

  1. In the bottom picture, Sophie really looks like Tim.


I'm excited to hear what you have to say. Just remember the rules of the playground and play nice!
