MEET MEGAN | {portrait photography} | march 2012

Friday, March 16, 2012

My blog has definitely been neglected these past couple months. Not a good way to start the year hey! That's OK, I'll make up for it during wedding season. It's going to be another busy summer and I'm really looking forward to it!

Between grads, portrait sessions in the studio, organizing material for my workshop and planning a wedding, it has been a busy couple of months. Yip, I said planning a wedding. Our wedding! Feels very strange, let me tell you. I've been a wedding photographer for over ten years. I've watched many Brides nervously prepare to meet their husband-to-be at the church and smiled to myself when I catch a Groom spinning his new bling around on his ring finger, trying to get used to the new feeling. As Tom and I prepare to say our I dos, I realize exactly how each of them felt. It's a mixture of excitement and sheer terror. Just kidding. Although, I'd be lying if I denied being nervous. Tom and I will be leaving on a jet plane (I know cliche) on May 11th. We will exchange vows on a white sandy beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica. And, both of our families are coming with us!

Anyway, getting back to the reason for this post. I will be hosting my first workshop for beginners next weekend. It might be basic, but there is a lot of information to cover. Photography is both an art and a science and I'm going to show my attendees how awesome art and science can be together!

The workshop includes a hands-on photoshoot. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with a model to practice new techniques and experiment with aperture, shutter speeds and composition.

Meet Megan. She will be our model! We met recently at Church Road Park. It was a bright sunny day. These image were all taken with natural light - a little out of character for me. Its very rare I don't add a little fill. Megan has beautiful eyes and the sun lit them perfectly. It also gave her a little sun-kissed glow. It was the perfect day for shooting during the winter months. In my opinion anyway.
