I'll begin my photo recap of weekend events with the portrait session I did with my beautiful niece. This is my oldest niece (at 15), and she's a very good photography subject. I find that the fewer instructions I give her, the better her poses. She's a natural, and was patient with her mom and me while we constantly asked her to smile for the camera throughout the weekend. First, I thought it would be fun to start with two older photos. I took these four years ago when I was barely starting to practice portraits.
Aww! There she is--all 11 and stuff. I fixed her hair kind of poofy there, but I still like it. Yeah, I have this little-known hobby of hairstyling, and I secretly would like to do wedding hair. Maybe in my next life. (Maybe I'll start fixing my own hair in my next life, too.)
Fast forward to this past weekend. I fixed her hair again but it was sort of a rush job, and then the weather was all humid and it basically went back to her natural curls in minutes. But it still looked good--she has great hair.
I'm talking about hair a lot.
And we'll finish with my favorites. Beauty!
I guess I didn't take any horizontal photos that I kept. I need to work on that.
Okay, well I'd better get back to more important matters. The Wii isn't going to play itself!
