A few weeks ago I got to go and shoot with a photographer whose work I've admired for some time - Carrie Stroud (http://www.carriestroudphotography.com/). She lives in Florida but was here visiting for a few days & I just LOVED hanging out with her for this session. I had planned to go with her for a few sessions but it was right when I was really sick & I just couldn't do more than the one session that I made it to. I had such a great time & learned so much from her in the short time I got to spend with her. And the family we shot was so much fun & up for anything! I spent a lot of the session observing, holding reflectors/diffusers, & trying to get kids' attention rather than taking pictures but I did take quite a few pictures & love what I got! And isn't this location just great? I'm so in love with it right now & can't wait for my next session there (it was actually my idea to shoot there & I'm so thrilled with how well it photographed). I shared these on my family blog shortly after the session & today I finally got around to playing with them a bit in photoshop & thought I'd post them here too in some of the different finishes that I typically include with each session.
