Black and White Wednesday

Family shoot (Naushine) 297 blog b&w

Last fall I did a pregnancy shoot with Miss N and then, just before Christmas, had the thrill of doing another when the baby was about 2 months old.

Then they asked me to do a Family photoshoot in January. (I remember thinking - oh, the light would be so much better in May but then remembered - we can't ask a baby to stop growing till the light is right. Pity.)

That day in January was almost too bright. I had visions of propping everyone near the window but had to pick the far wall on the sofa as the room was flooded with sunlight.

But I think no matter what light this family was in - they are just one gorgeous family!!!

Cindy said...

Beautiful family! love the B&W photo.

Maddy said...

What a beautiful family and gorgeous pictures!! Me thinks you captured the light beautifully in their living room! The baby is so big already! Can't believe how quickly time flies! It seems like yesterday when you were doing her maternity shots!

Jenny said...

I like the apples too. What a fun & inexpensive prop!

Buckeroomama said...

Oh, that last mother-daughter shot is stunning, Wanda! You did a fantastic job with the photos. :) I'm sure the family must have been pretty happy with all these wonderful pictures!

Dita said...

I just can't stop GAWKING at how gorgeous this family is....they just take my breath away!! I love how you captured them all together. I can feel the warmth and I know you must have had a blast with them. The apple picture was made me smile and the pop of color was just perfect.

I can see why they want you again and again...your photos are absolutely gorgeous!

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my goodness Wanda! What a beautiful family! I remember seeing them before and I always thought they were lovely. Babies are pure deliciousness! :)
Your picture size looks perfect. I have to tell you the truth...I think blogs that are not in one are too much work : ). I barely ever click over to a special photography blog unless it is one of my very favorite friends! I have also heard from families that they would rather be on my main blog because that is where all the action happens! If that is what they like then far be it from me to disrupt their wishes!

That is just my opinion though...and what do I know? Not a whole heck of a lot!

Hope you have a great night.....and you will definitely be missed this weekend~

WOW. These are fabulous pictures, I love the apple picture. You are seriously working your magic.

How rewarding is this? Is there anything you can't do well???? I didn't think so.

I bet they loved every shot.

The butterfly photos are also stunning. Spring is definitely makiing it's presence known, but about a week and a half later Summer shows up with major attitude and kick's spring to the curb and stays for 6 months.

Aren't you glad you don't live in Texas?

Love everything.
