Big changes coming to “The Long Road to China”……. my blog is about to be turned into a blogsite, with a navigation bar and drop down menus. I plan to post about our family, food, and photography, just as I always have, but I will now be able to separate and categorize my posts. You will see what I mean once I am up and running……which will hopefully be in the next week:)
Anyway….. with the permission of my clients, I plan to post some sneak peeks during these next few months.
This lovely lady is the first one that will be going under the new “Photography” Sneak Peak Session. Most of you probably remember Alicia.. She is the daughter of a good friend of mine.
Alicia has not been in front of my camera since last summer and I cannot believe how much she has changed in a few short months. I see her at least once a week and I guess I didn’t realize how much she has changed and matured until I saw her pictures staring back at me.
I have so many favorties of this beautiful girl…… her Mom is literally going to be able to wallpaper her house in photos.
Nick is so funny….. He hates having his picture taken, but is always happy to come along with me when I do shoots. He likes to help out………I guess he will do anything as long as he is not the one that has to be in front of the camera. Well…. I also think that he and Alicia have a secret crush on each other. Whenever they are together, they are so shy and bashful at first, then they get super giggly. Oh yeah….. it is starting!
I used a few textures that were made by my friend Colleen for this particular photo. If you are a texture fanatic, you must check them out. Click HERE for more info.
After watching me take pics of Alicia, he let me snap just a few of him as he sat there taking a break. I love him in this shade of blue…..it is a great color on him:)
As for this location….. It is the side of a “Napa Auto Parts” store that is in the town where Alicia lives. We went after the store closed and had the entire parking lot to spread out. I love the peeling wall…..it brings so much texture to the pictures. In addition to the wall, there was on old trailer with a lift gate……Nick was sitting on the edge of it and that is where I snapped those photos. This is also the same location where I took the pictures of Sarah with the bubbles.
The parks aren’t quite in full color yet, so places like this are a nice change until we see that Spring and Summer are definitely here to stay!!
I ‘ ve gotta run….. I have a full day ahead and then tonight is the first online photoshop class and I am super excited! All of the March classes have been filled and I currently have a wait list started for April. Those classes should be posted here very soon!!
Have a great day!
