Yep, you guessed! My past week has been filled with photos, accidentally deleting 11,000 photos, trying to recover them, reshooting, reediting, and finally finishing up!
My dear friends Scott and Elizabeth asked me to shoot their engagement photos, and I was SO beyond excited! I wanted to give them the best photos ever! I got finished editing them and was making space on my hard drive while backing up and accidentally deleted EVERYTHING! I lost 3 sessions, 2 of which I had to reshoot including Scott and Elizabeth’s. Good thing everyone understood and we made plans to fit another session into our busy schedule. I reshoot on Sunday and I wasn’t sure I loved the second session as much as the first because I really loved the first, but after digging my heels into the workflow I really think the second set turned out better! Maybe it happened for a reason, maybe not, but these photos are pure love! Of course there are some that I can’t get back and am desperately devastated about, but for the most part I really am happy with the second session! Well, here have a look for yourself and tell me what you think!
This week was filled with babies for me! Last Saturday I shot a birthday party for 4 adorable little tykes turning 1 (checkout http://www.facebook.com/CreativeButtonPhotography for images) and then I did a family session with a new mom and dad and their new baby, along with grandma, grandpa, and auntie I tell you, I am so lucky to get to capture these precious, beautiful and amazing moments! I think last weekend produced some of my favourite images EVER! The families were all so amazing and so great to work with! Everyone was just completely on board with getting great end results, which always makes my job easier! The love I felt this weekend for family just spoke loud and clear about all of these people. It made me think about one day having a family of my own and how that might change my life and fill it with more joy than I have yet to know! Anyway, here they are! For more images check out my facebook page! I must admit, I finally feel like I am hitting my stride and finding my style and it feel GREAT!
It is 12:26 am and here I find myself catching up on a much needed blog post. I am in the midst of returning to school for second last semester of my BSW and find myself wishing i knew I loved photography a long time ago, alas, Social Work is still a love of mine, and I am going to get that dang piece of paper if it kills me! I paid a lot of money for it!
Anyway, back to photos. I have found myself getting steadily busier and about to go into the busiest month I have ever had! YAY ME! It seems that all of my sessions lately are family sessions (maybe the universe is trying to tell me something) anywho, since I have had several sessions since my lovely little sissy and all with my new D7000 I figure I may as well share a few shots from those events!
Ohhh on a side note, I indulged in buying a new 50mm F/1.8 lens as well as a Kelly Moore camera bag (2 sues) which I am patiently awaiting in the mail Eeeepppp! I am so very excited!!!!
Anyway, here are my family shots from a total of 4 sessions!
