Photos, Not Pictures

October 26th


A couple friends asked me to take photos for them this weekend. Baby Mya was born just more a week ago. I don’t have permission to post any additional photos, but I think you can see how tiny and sweet she is from this shot.

I love taking photos for friends, but I have to be very honest. I have no idea what I’m doing. I put my camera in automatic, shoot like mad and hope for something to come out that they can work with. My friend Amanda has taken photography classes, has a small country’s economy’s worth of fancy gear, and takes photos that turn heads. We had lunch yesterday and it was quite apparent I have absolutely no business ever making this an actual business.

Which was quite alright for Elaina and Nick. They are getting married next summer and wanted engagement photos. It was such fun to get them to goof around and didn’t take any work to make them look at each other lovey-dovey.

Beautiful, right? I am lucky that the models are so easy to work with! (and that I have another job)

  1. Okay, Mya (or Mia) is becoming a popular girls’ name. That makes four new girl babies with that name that I know of recently! Beautiful photos, Kel! You have so much artistic talent!

  2. The pictures look great! We love them! It was so wonderful to have such a great friend take our pictures.

    Thanks Kelli 🙂

  3. Your photos look wonderful, Kelli. Professional photographers take gazillions and gazillions of pictures to get that one special shot. So they’re not magically producing wonderful photos immediately. I’ve always enjoyed your photos.

  4. those little feet are precious.

  5. Una foto preciosa, muy tierna y bien tratada. Tienes un blog precioso me alegro de haberte descubierto, seguro que volvere a visitarte. Un saludo!!

  6. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my
    comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!
