Hello again, hope everyone had a wonder Easter weekend! I had an awesome time filled with not one, but TWO photo shoots and the return of fast food and pizza to my diet after giving it up for Lent. It was all around awesome.
Friday, I did a photo shoot for an old friend from junior high and high school. I believe I might have talked about her on the blog before as her singing career has been taking off while living in L.A. She's been on Ellen, The Tonight Show, The Young and the Restless, and been a backup singer to countless big time acts. She asked me to take a few shots of her and I gladly obliged. When else do you get to photograph a celebrity?
There will be more coming from this photo shoot, but have to wait until she looks them all over and get the final approval. She wants to make sure she looks good. :-)
The next day, Saturday, I had a photo shoot for my little sister in order to do her pregnancy pictures. We went to Old Sacramento to take a bunch of them and then finished them off at the park and at my house. I am actually super proud of them and think they may be the best photo shoot I have done yet. Special thanks to Jess for helping with come up with poses and stuff. I had an extremely difficult time deciding which photo of the set would be used as photo of the day, but ended up going with this one...
When you love so many of them, it is way difficult. If you have the time, check out the slideshow of the rest here as I am really pleased with them.
Sunday was Easter and with Lent over and me able to eat yummy garbage food again, we opted for ordering pizza for Easter dinner. It was the best Easter dinner EVER! I took some Peeps from our friends' house for the picture of the day, but it didn't go like I wanted. I wanted to take a picture of a Peep on fire, but we tried and tried and the bugger just wouldn't catch on fire. Sure, he melted, but not good flames. I opted for a non-burnt Peep staring at the messed up Peep, wondering what the heck happened to him.
Today was a workday pretty much from the time it got sunny until the sun started to go down. I felt it was a good time to go outside and take a picture of the sun going down, but more from the angle of the field rather than the sun being the focal point.
