photo of the day: hair toss

Being up in Rehoboth this week reminded me just how much I love shooting there, so I was going through some of last years shoots from the beach. I love this particular shot, which would never make the cut for a senior since you can't see enough of her face, but I love her smile and the movement of her hair. So much attitude. A few more of her images are here.

::sneakiest peek::

So today I shot the senior photos of my youngest cousin, and now I officially feel old. I took her older sister's senior photos, I've taken her pictures before, three years ago, and she's grown up so much since then that I really can't believe that she's a senior in HIGH SCHOOL. Where has the time gone? (Also: let us all pause and compare the difference that three years has made in my photography. Just. Wow.) Anyway, she looks so freaking beautiful; I had to share just a couple of my favorites from the dozens of good ones.

senior photos for K

Friday K and I drover over to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware to take a few senior photos. We left pretty early in order to avoid crowds, and I am super-glad we did; that place is crazy on summer weekends! So anyway, K is a killer tennis player, as well as being super-chill in front of the camera, and we had a blast. She'd never been to downtown Rehoboth! It was fun wandering around, checking out my favorite shooting spots, and generally being goofy. I love this girl!

Chilling on the pier. At this point the beach was relatively empty, but that didn't last long.

How amazing is her smile? 

class of 2010!
Hooray for the class of 2010! K was my first senior of the year; I'm looking forward to the rest. 

It's hard work to get her to NOT SMILE, but worth it, I think. 

Yes, she can kill you with that thing. In the nicest way possible.

This has to be one of my favorites. 

We love this giant chessboard. 

Fields like this are why I love the Eastern Shore. 
piggy kisses!
Yes, you saw that right. My pets are once again being used as props. K loves Agatha. Well, obviously.

the best of 2008

My husband and I counted up, and I think we took around 50,000 photos this year. That's a lot of pictures, and of that number, maybe 5,000 even made it out of my office and into albums? But anyway, these are my favorites of the year. They're probably not technically the "best" ones, but they are the ones I love the most.

And for historical purposes, here is last years list. Wow. A lot has changed.

M's senior photos

I took these a couple of weeks ago, mainly in downtown Rehoboth. M was super-fun to shoot with; she's very laid-back and unpretentious, so she was up for pretty much any pose or idea. That's her (totally awesome) car in the photos, she wanted to know if she could use it, and I was all "heck yes!" Anyway, it was fun.

mac's senior photos

So it's that time of year: senior photos! I had two shoots last week, with two very different girls, and they were both tons of fun.

M is homeschooled and the oldest of six. We hit the downtown plaza (I'm afraid I'm wearing that place out!) and then pemberton park. Awesomeness!

Isn't her pink gown fab? 

She looks all emo here. Love it. 

Aren't her eyes amazing? 

I love this one. 

Very rarely can I get an upside-down shot to work, but it does here. 

My favorite. blue toes!

sneak peek!

Thursday afternoon le husband and I headed out to take senior photos for Rose. This is the first shoot on which I asked him to take the lead, and I had a blast being an accessory instead of the main event. Rose was a trooper, and did just about anything with an amazing smile. We think she looks like a young Eva Mendes. You?

Of the photos below, half were taken by me, and half by le husband. I processed them all for consistency, but I still love the differences in style.
