i finally had the motivation to take some photos using my “real” camera rather than just my iphone….it has been TOO long. and yes, i think my camera DID have a layer of dust on it (kinda kidding…..but that wouldn’t be inconceivable!).
just some quick photos (took about 10 minutes start to finish) to document flossie’s new “hairdo” – pigtails! i really think they suit her…not sure what has taken me so long to try these.
used my nikon d3, 35mm 2.0 lens (because with this wild one…i really have to be at an arm’s length from her….she is insanely busy…almost to the point of being dangerous…so i sacrificed a bit of lens distortion for safety on these!).
here is the lens i use (especially when working with toddlers like this one).
i put her up on a bar stool by the great light we get in the afternoon in our kitchen from the french doors. and i worked crazy fast….because she is a hater of the camera. so i was bribing her with m&m’s and working fast to get at least a couple of shots. i’m sure many of you wonder why i haven’t been posting as much…well…you have your answer below. she keeps me busier than i have EVER been in my life. i literally cannot take my eyes off of her for a second. she’s crafty and full of fire!
it really felt good to be photographing a toddler again – it has been too long! i was able to capture a wide variety of expressions by playing “where’s flossie?? pretending to not see her….and by hiding my face behind the camera then popping out saying “boo!”…works everytime!
i got her little dress from target….debated on purchasing it…and now i’m super glad i got it. she looked adorable in it! it is from their harajuku line by gwen stephani (most of the pieces in this collection were a little too trendy for my tastes, but this one was super cute and vintage looking).
hope you all are doing well and that you’re looking forward to the joytography release!
