Mike & Diana Engagement Session| Lawrence, KS

These two are some of my favorite people on the planet. When we were deciding where to shoot their engagement photos downtown Lawrence was our first choice.

Mike and Diana live near downtown and have worked and played their for many years. We began in South Park and stopped at a few places along the way. Some were planned, break at the Red Lyon for a quick beer, and some were discovered along the way.

I was especially excited to find a new spot near Bon Bon and the new Lawrence Arts District that has so many possibilities for cool photos.

It was a really fun evening and I can’t wait for their wedding!

The Quenette’s|Trina Baker Photography Family Portraits

 

Super fun Saturday morning hanging out with the Quenette family, shooting photos and giggling.  Are you dying over those curly blond locks yet? South Park is one of my favorite places to shoot portraits.  I have done many sessions there and it always amazes me how different the park is on any given day. Although there weren’t any Spring flowers yet, I love the lush green of newly sprouted Spring trees and grass. And even though this is Jayhawk country, I will say “Go Bison!”

VSCO Instant Film Set | Trina Baker Photography

I went to the South Park today to snap some quick photos before it got hot today. I wanted to play around with the VSCO Instant Film Set. LOVE.  These images were edited with the 669 preset. So warm and lovely.  I used to shoot a lot of Polaroid film, before they went out of business, so I was quite excited when this set was released.  I have tried some of the Impossible Project Film but it just wasn’t right for me.  These instant film ACR presets are just amazing!  I so love the matte finish and muted warm tones. They really represent what Polaroid film looked like.  These images were shot with my Lensbaby, of course, with the Edge 80 opetic and edited with the 669 film in one of the four presets. There are 22 film stocks with about 4-5 variations with each one.  Also, I added a subtle lens flare in Photoshop to add a little drama.  I would love to know your thoughts on these images.
