My first attempt at a photo shoot

Yesterday I took some pictures of my cousins two gorgeous girls.

Who doesn't want a girl with red hair and blue eyes? Seriously!

This was my first "real" photoshoot for another family.


I just wanted to share how cute these little dollies are. I love them so!


( **Disclaimer: I do not in any way claim to be a professional. I am not trained and I do not have fancy lenses or other equipment. I hardly know how to use my camera. I am a total amateur and just do this because I think it is fun. Please don't critique my work or compare it to a "real" photographer. I realize I have no idea what I am doing, I am very slowly learning a few things. Hopefully someday . . . )


It is easy to take cute pictures when these are your subjects:

You look professional to me! Geesh..those are some beautiful pictures!

Lovely. You do a great job. What kind of camera do you use? Have you used books/websites to teach yourself? Do you photoshop? Photography is on my post-dissertation hobby wish list and a Nikon D90 is on my post-student-loan-budget wishlist (although I'd settle for a point-and-shoot that works, at this point).

You did such a great job! Thank you for doing this for me! I'm so excited to give these pictures to their grandparents for Xmas! And although they are mine, they are pretty gorgeous! Not biased or anything! Thanks again.

They look awesome!

janelle said...

Well, you are a pretty amazing amateur!! good work!!

I second the question, What kind of camera do you have? I am going to be buying one soon, so I am interested in your thoughts.

And, yes, I agree every body does need a picture of a red-headed blue-eyed girl!! :)

Oh, and come to HENDERSON! :)

These are awesome!

Kami said...

I think you did great! I too think photography is so fun and I love learning all I can.

Brooke said...

Good job Jane! These look fantastic!

Breena said...

Yeah the D90 is the one with video. I went to high school with Holly and I love her photography, too. After I get a camera, I want to do one of her workshops. Maybe you and I can do one together next Fall or something.

Maryann said...

Nice work!! They turned out so cute!

Andrea said...

Seriously Jane, what the hell are you talking about, you don't know how to take pictures! Those are all poster shots! Will you do my family?

R Clan said...

These are great. I especially love the one of the little baby. That is to die for.

Jennifer Garbett said...

Way to go Jane! Love your eye, that red head is too cute! I especially love the last two shots of her with the red wall (nice angle you shot) and the horizontal shot of her at the end! Good job...email me if you ever want to "shop talk."

Stacie Aho said...

Wow- those are adorable. Way to go at capturing their beautiful eyes!

jill & rich said...

These pictures are brilliant!!! I want you to tell me how you shot them...pretty please.

Amber said...

so great, that disclaimer was not needed. Jane you are so adorable! The pictures take my breath away.

Dan and Melissa said...

Jane, whose kids are those? THey are beautiful. Your pictures are fantastic. I really think you have a skill with this...I'm so glad you're developing this talent.
Maybe you could take my girl's Christmas pics?

Alison said...

You did a great job! I love them! And those are some super cute little girls!!! WOW!

KRISTA said...

My family is next! (Please?) It is so not fair that you can be exceptional at everything you try.

shauntelle said...

absolutely beautiful, maybe you could post some tips for the rest of us

Henich Family said...

Those are great pics Jane!!!!

Katie and Jeff said...

You have an eye for photography for sure! These are beautiful shots! Your very good at cropping & effects as well! You are right about the girls too! With subjects like those it would be hard to have a bad shot!

Dawn said...

whatever!!! Your disclaimer is ridiculous!
So, so cute. You are too too talented!

Sandy said...

Do you need a big model?
