Mother and Daughter

My beautiful friend Megan and her sweet baby girl let me snag them for some photos yesterday during the Golden Hour. We headed out about 4:30 to get a good hour in before sunset. I was a little worried as we were driving to the location and it started to rain! Thankfully, it let up just in time to catch some gorgeous light. To prepare for the shoot I read this article on one of my favorite websites I Heart Faces. It was fun to try some different things but definitely challenging with the light changing so quickly and the bright sun made it difficult to focus. I recently read about back button focusing so I think I might try that out next time! I decided to add a watermark to my photos for fun…this is my graphic design logo turned photography logo 🙂M&F-1

M&F-2M&F-3M&F-4M&F-6I used a reflector for the shot below. Notice her face is illuminated and she has some beautiful catch light in her eyes! I had planned on using the reflector earlier but it was too difficult to hold and shoot at the same time. It wasn’t until the end that I realized I could prop the reflector up against a step stool I had brought with me and ta da! Gives it a whole different look…M&F-7
