Another Kelly-ism…

This is only the surface of my latest Kelly, Messy Monkey Founder, photo shoot (you may remember her in the bathtub with eggs)… there is so much more to come from this shoot, but unfortunately we photographed right before I flew away on my current Eastern Adventure… so I haven’t had time to scan the negatives yet or process the digital… but I managed to sneak one negative in before Arann dragged me out the door so I wouldn’t miss my flight.

Kelly has an amazing collection of old-school granny night gowns and she wanted to play in the yard wearing them, and we have this great old horn in our house, which she was excited to play with. It brought her back to her days as drum major in her high school band… her marching form is excellent!

Stay tuned for more Kelly photo shoots.

Photo Booth Geniuses!!

For my friend Claudia’s wedding, I wanted to set-up a photo-booth, where the guests could photograph themselves. I like photo-booths because people are always more relaxed and creative when they are allowed to photograph themselves, rather than when a stranger is taking their photo. And at weddings, inevitably there are guests that I am not able to photograph, so a photo-booth helps ensure that the couples have photos of everyone who wants to be photographed.

So before the wedding, I sought advice on how to set it up from Jessamyn, a photographer friend, who often sets up photo stations at her weddings. And then I sought help from Thomas, another photographer friend, who was also coming to the wedding. Together we set up the station with lights, a cable release and a sign instructing people on what to do.

The day after the wedding, Thomas and I were flipping through the photos, and we found a lot of good ones, but mostly the usual: smiling, kissing, silly face photos…. and then we found this…

Absolutely amazing!! I have no idea who these people are, but they are photo-booth geniuses in my book. Anyone who is that creative when left alone with a camera has got to be fun to hang out with.

And well… then there was this one… but I know these two, and yes, they are lots of fun to hang out with!
