What a task...trying to photograph my own children lately. They are just DONE! I know I try to capture them a lot, so I backed off for a few weeks. Then, my husband and I thought it would be nice to take the boys to some of the local spots where I've photographed clients. The biggest issue was the time of day. It's extremely hard to carve time away from the soccer and baseball fields on the weekends, so my light was not what I really enjoy working with. We were out pretty close to midday. It was also very windy at the beach. On top of that...the cooperation from everyone was severly lacking. Out of MANY photos, I was able to peel a couple away that I thought would be nice to post. They only made it harder on themselves, because guess what? We're going to try again!
