Baldi Family

This is my second photographing this family and this time was just as fun as the first.  They totally trusted to do my thing and even let me try some new ideas on them and I think it totally worked out.  

I shot the entire session on film - which is a tad more stressful than digital when you can't rely on your lcd to make sure you got exposure right or got the right moment.  It requires you to really pay attention to your entire frame because you can't click the shutter 10 times and then pick the best one.  You need to wait for the moment and anticipate and also, sometimes, be ok with missing it.  Another one will happen.  Film is a challenge - but its also incredibly fun.  I have decided that I will only be shooting sessions on film from here on out.  SUPER excited about it!  

All the photos in this post were shot with Portra400 on my Pentax645n and developed and scanned by Millers Photo lab.  I still need to take the 35mm to be developed but I wanted to share these right away!  More to come!  

I'm an aunt again! | Cleveland, Ohio Newborn Hospital Photographer

Woohoo! I am an aunt again!!  This little nugget was less than day old for these photos.  Whenever I see a newborn it always blows my mind that just a short time ago they were inside someone's belly - even though I've done it twice myself it never ceases to amaze me.  She is SO cute and I am so excited to watch her grow up. My kids and I keep playing a game where we wonder what she will like and what she won't.  It's so fun to imagine all the possibilities and imagine her running around with her big brother and cousins one day.  We are so happy to have her in our family <3


Here is an adorable video clip of her yawning! (no sound because of the conversation SOME people were having - haha)

This day was SOOOO dreary. I took a little video on the way to the hospital showing what I was up against.  This is why she stayed near the window the entire time and my ISO was 6400!  In more exciting news, I videotaped myself shooting these photos and editing them for my ClickinMoms breakout coming out just after Christmas!
