I had a photo shoot this morning at Gage Park in Topeka. Of course I had to stop by the Reinisch Rose Garden for some photos. I have attended many weddings there and have some fond memories of this beautiful garden. It was a truly enjoyable experience to wander around, take some photos and breathe in all the amazing scents. A lovely morning indeed. I will share the photos from the shoot early next week. Have a lovely weekend!
Here are a few photos from my shoot with the lovely Bella last weekend. She is such a precocious little girl with energy for days. One of my goals this year was to down my editing to cleaner edits. I think I was being a bit heavy-handed and I want the images to look fresh and modern with a touch of vintage. Does that make sense? Anyway, I like the way my first two session edits have gone this year. I would love to know your thoughts.
I had the best day taking photos with my little friend “J”. We ran around the park, got on the swings and bobbled on horses. Well we didn’t, she did. So I wanted to share some photos from the day. She is such a treat to photograph. I took along the Lensbaby for the first time on a shoot. I like the effect, however, I still need to do some more experimenting with portraits. Just can seem to find the sweet spot on faces. Oh well, live and learn.

Just popped out to my front yard to snap a photo of the emerging Black Eyed Susans on a lovely overcast day. I love the dreamy, old world feel of this image. I think the pink and maroon tones mixed with the mossy greens reminds me of an old Polaroid. I used my Lensbaby Composer lens to enhance the blur and selective focus.
I have been a hard working girl for the past three weeks and yesterday I rewarded myself. I bought myself a 105mm f2.8 macro/telephoto lens. I love macro photography and this lens is considered to be one of the best lenses for portrait photography as well. I will share some photos I take with it as soon as it arrives.
