I hope these two had fun over at junior prom last night in Middletown MD! I got to take a few photographs (in the thankfully light rain) before they headed off.
The light in downtown Frederick, MD at Baker Park was the perfect, magical, backdrop to photograph my daughter against. The blossoms were amazing, and the light just simply beautiful. There were children playing on the playground close by and, even though she was wearing her beautiful dress, my daughter is a normal child and was itching to run and play. This made for a super fast set of portrait photographs, her pulling her dress off right in front of the bell tower, putting her shirt and on and running like a mad child to play with the other children on the playground before the sunset.
This photograph epitomizes how I hope that my daughter remembers her childhood. Riding around exploring on her pony.
Meet Bently the dog. I photographed him as part of an update that I've been doing with Jefferson Veterinary Hospital's website, where I've been taking pet portraits of the staff's dogs. I've been really enjoying photographing pets and I am seriously considering adding it to one of my specialities. As the wife of a veterinarian, I think that pet portraiture fits in my portfolio pretty nicely :D
Another photograph of another fun baseball game with Frederick National Little League in downtown Frederick at Staley Field. My son is loving these games.
I've decided to task myself with the task of posting a photograph a day. I'm being forgiving on myself, it doesn't have to be something that I took that day, although that would be nice :D I took this photograph earlier this spring down at the cherry blossoms along the tidal basin in Washington DC.
