I love when my friends have babies because then I get to cuddle them & take their portraits!  I have known this mom for longer than I care to think about, like over 20 years, because when you do math & realize your old its no fun.

When Tyler’s mom called to book his session she mentioned that he may not want more then just the yearbook but he may want some near a red barn.  I was surprised when  Tyler & his mom came for his session that Tyler was willing to do a bit more.  After we did a few shots for the yearbook we then went outside my studio to my Husbands old jeep, one of those I really want to fix this up projects that turns into I either don’t have the time or the money so I’ll just let it sit here until I do & in the mean time it makes for a great prop, because as it turns out Tyler likes working on cars & getting dirty.  After that we went down the road to Tallgrass Prairie Restoration, I love this place because it is so close but offers a great variety of shooting areas, for a few images.

I don’t really have to many words for this session.  I was contacted by a friend of Brandon’s who is kind of like a father figure for him.  He had lots of ideas for this session including their love of sports, sports memorabilia & motorcycles.  Brandon’s friend is part of a local Harley Davidson group & wanted to include his motorcycle in some images as well.  So we started off Brandon’s session in the studio with him in a suit for some more traditional portraits.

I follow a lot of photographers on Facebook & get ideas from them, I’ve been seeing a lot of sports images using a fog machine lately so I decided I needed one to play with.  When talking to Tiegue I mentioned this & showed her a few samples & she was so excited.  So I practiced with my son the day before because I wanted to know what I was in for with using the fog machine & to see how foggy things would get, my small space gets real foggy but it is so worth it.  So for her session we did her yearbook photo to start then a few shots in her volleyball uniform before we started playing in fog.  I can not recommend a fog machine enough, if your a photographer & thinking about stepping up your sports portraits it’s totally worth it.  While it has been a bit of a learning curve as to where to place it, how often to run it & how foggy it leaves my studio when we’re done it gives such a cool effect to portraits!  Thanks for being my guinea pig Tiegue!
