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!
So, while I was away honeymooning in Iceland I had the misfortune of having my new husband drop it and cause some serious damage to it. Sadly in combination of extensive use over the past 2 years and the drop I had to say good bye to my little D3100. Lucky for me it was on our last day and it lived long enough to see me on to the plane home, but with a jam packed shooting schedule on the horizon of our return, I couldn’t afford to be out my body and one lens. So…. I introduced the D7000 to my collection on Saturday. My first official shoot back was booked for the Monday so I convinced my little sister to do a session with me. Luckily she agreed. So, we went out to some hay bails on the side of the road near my house and we got crackin! LOVE THE NEW CAMERA!
my poor sister failed to mention her hay allergy and broke out in welts not long after we started. Needless to say it was the end of our short session but boy did we walk away with some stunners! I am so excited to share these images and they are so special to me. I feel like this is the start of a new chapter in my photography! So, here they are!
Ahh 16, what a tender age! Full of drama excitement, knowing everything, passion, bullying, and getting out of high school alive. I must admit, I AM SO GLAD I AM PAST THAT, like 10 years ago!!
On the up side, I had the pleasure of photographing Miss. Daniela’s sweet 16 party. What an amazing, kind, and genuine young lady! All of this was a big surprise to her and boy was she surprised when her parents had a limo, her best girlfriends, and a hall booked out for a party.
We went out for some fun group shots and then off to the hall for the dance! All of the young ladies were delightful and so sweet! I was so lucky to be surrounded by a family full of love and compassion@ Daniela’s grandparents even made the party all the way from Peru!
I was so lucky to get a chance to photograph a family with so much love to give, it kind of reminds me about what is really important in life. So, I am lucky to say that I had such a great chance to meet so many amazing people!
Hello again, it’s me your host – Stephanie. Today I am writing about the wonderful baby shower I photographed last Sunday. It was fabulous and our guest of honour, Manjit was such an incredible hostess with such great style! The house and yard were immaculate, which made it easy to snap some wonderful candid photos of all the guest. However, I have to say the little ones of the party stole my heart! The weather was great for a party and the sky was beautiful! There was tons of food, fun, and games! What a great way to spend a Sunday! Here are a few shot I nabbed during the event!
In other news, I have an awesome weekend ahead of me! I am doing a wedding for the lovely Jason and Jessica on Saturday and then a fabulous Boudoir marathon on Sunday! Photos to come, I promise!
Well, here I am – finally writing a blog. If you didn’t know already, I am Stephanie, your gracious host of the masterpiece. I am the owner and operator of Creative Button Photography and I began Creative Button on April 18, 2011. Photography was not really a part of my plan other than using it as my precious ‘self-care’ time. Professionally, I am a Social Worker and I love my job, but sometimes I need a peaceful place to go after a long day of work. I bought a camera after carrying a point and shoot around with me EVERYWHERE! I started taking photos as often as I could and the big jump was my trip to Costa Rica in February 2011. When I came home people started asking if they could use my photos as screen savers and then people asked to buy prints and then it evolved into people asking me to take photos for them so naturally, In super speed time I decided that Creative Button was now a major faucet of my life. I love it. I love photography. I love seeing things through a lens and I love finding the beauty in the simplest of things.
So, lets fast track to present day, shall we? Ok, here we are. June 5, 2012. I recently began wedding season and it is a steady start. I haven’t advertised much, so getting the word out is slow, but my previous clients have been so amazing in helping me spread the word. I recently invested in Lightroom 4 and have found it to be SOOOOO amazing! I am so glad I finally went for it. Photoshop is a little over whelming for me and I am hoping to take a class sometime soon. Ohh did I tell you, I am taking my first photography class starting June 28! I am so excited, it is a lighting class, which I think will help my work a lot.
On Sunday, the 3rd, I had the pleasure of photographing a Baby shower (of course the individual blog and photos will be coming soon). Other than that I have been practicing with presets and processing tools and working on reediting some of my old photos, so with that said, here are a few for you to feast your lovely eyes on! Please feel free to comment and share!
