The 'K' Family

I know I say this all the time, but I feel so blessed to be doing what I am doing. I love photography and strive to get better every single day. I want to be the best that I can and I love that I can use all those creative urges I have!
This family was open for my ideas and let me pose them and get creative with their photos and I really appreciate that! We had to work around the weather (which has been the case with a lot of sessions this summer, it's been so cold!) but I think their images turned out awesome, all things considered.
For you photographers out there, I used my 50mm1.4 lens for the whole session and I am so glad that I did. I haven't used it for a group that big yet but it really wasn't any trouble. I just had to adjust where I stood and I was able to play around with my aperture and ISO more and I love love love how the images came out. Much better than that kit lens (18-55mm) that I will be getting rid of as soon as I can afford the 18-200mm2.8 that I am eyeing up!
Let me know what you think, I LOVE comments!

Olivia- 4 months

I am so so happy with how this little one's session turned out! It seemed to move so smoothly and I felt like I totally had a handle on my camera settings and light (which can be the trickiest part of the whole session!) The light that I did find was amazing to say the least, it really made this little beauty's eyes sparkle and shine. Have I mentioned that I am in love with my 50mm1.4 lens? I haven't taken it off my camera in a very long time and love the results I am getting with it.
So without further ado, here is little miss sweetie Olivia, future Miss America!

More favorites from this summer..

There were so many sessions that I missed posting on here from this crazy summer I have had and I feel like some photos deserve a second peek (or a first for those of you without facebook or coming to see my work for the first time). Let me know what you think, and if you're interested in booking your own session email me @ photosbymandy@gmail.com for prices and availability.
