My iTunes: Nine in the Afternoon by Panic at the Disco

Here is a few more from one of my recent shoots. I went to a beautiful spread out in the country at dusk to capture a this brother and sister. Such a pair is always fun to shoot. I think it's because you have these two individual people and I want to capture their personalities AND relationship the best I can. I could tell these two are close. As the time wore on they were more and more comfortable with me. I am sure it is because I got them to do all sorts of stuff and I ended up rolling around on the ground, getting bitten by bugs and scraped by anything my legs hit! It was fun although I needed repellent and Neosporin when I was done!

Below is another shot from that day. I like the grainy, rustic feel I get from these.

Hope you enjoy!

Dirty Feet

Wow, outstanding...you captured not only the warmth between the two but also wonderful skin tones and I want to tickle those toes...

Great shots. Very natural. At first glance, I thought you'd neutralized all the color except the boy's shirt in photo #1. Her hair, skin, and clothing blend so well with the grass.

Love the feet. :)

I always enjoy shooting willing subjects. Much different from my days in photojournalism.

Great, warm shots.

Everyone else has said it so well. Perfect capture. The third image is simply stunning!

Everytime I open and the header pops up - WOW!

I like all the pics, but that last one really captures the closeness they appear to have together. That will framed and on the wall!

Nice shots. The one I prefer is the middle one.

You and your subjects are blessed and a blessing. Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots. Hope your bug bites healed quickly. Try Burt's Bees bug bite relief! hehehe

Anna: Really special shots and i'm sure eveyone was happy.

Peculiar said...

Oh Anna! These shots are more than precious! They make one speechless, especially a person like me who love to see her children run around in the open country (my dad used to own a 74 acre farm). Your perspective...WOW!! I'm glad I checked in on you today. BTW, thanks for your comment to me. I will, as usual, be making my frequent stops by here and losing myself in your photos.

I love the colors of the pictures. They're so golden and summer-ish :-) I bet you're a fun photographer to have do a photo shoot!

I enjoy looking at your daily photos, I have been dropping by for a while, thru my Moksha's site. Very cool pictures!

Sarch said...

Oh man...these are FANTASTIC Anna!

Gina said...

Brilliant Anna.. both coloured shots would have to been some of the best portraits I've seen in a long time..so love the golden light and the setting is perfect..I think your bug bites were worth it!! {easy for me to say I guess!} Really wonderful work

John Roberts said...

You caught the golden light of late afternoon just right. Bravo!

Greg C said...

Great shots but you are right, don't sit in the grass. Too many bugs. I couldn't resist the other day either. I just had to stretch out in the grass by The Washington Monument.

In the following century, France would be governed at one point or another as a republic, constitutional monarchy and two different empires (the First and Second).
