2 dragonflies

I had been having a very stressful day, when I was sitting outside and saw two dragonflies flit past me. Immediately distracted from my woes, I ran in and grabbed my camera, and then back into the field, hoping they wouldn’t venture far. Luckily, they accommodated my request for a photograph…. The first, larger brown one was very still, not at all bothered by me getting in close (I started with a few far “safe” shots just in case…but the final image here is only cropped a teeny bit just to center it). The little blue guy was quite the opposite- flying from stalk to stalk in the grassy field giving me mere seconds to focus each time. Unlike some of my fave fellow bloggers, I haven’t researched the names of these two- I just think they’re pretty.

I can’t help but be mesmerized by the intricate beauty in the tiniest of God’s creatures. Today, I needed a few minutes of pure focus (both literally and figuratively)- because photography for the pure joy of it really takes me to a peaceful place. I often have trouble quieting my mind… but when I am looking through my lens, for the pure joy of the image itself, it’s the closest to zen I get.

I was using my general purpose 16-50mm 2.8 lens- but boy I’ve been thinking about a macro. Unfortunately dragonflies are rarely paying customers… and my latest new lens is my beautiful 70-200 for portraits and weddings…. but does a photog EVER stop dreaming about new lenses?

A little bit of pink…..

It seems like it’s been a long time since I’ve had a newborn girl in studio – there has been a boy baby boom among my clients and friends. I was so happy to get out some of my pink accessories, and enjoy some baby girl love! Ellie-Ann was an absolute dream- she slept and snuggled through the entire session just like a pro!

I crocheted the matching blanket and headband set.  The flower was just a find at an accessory store in the mall.
