Watercolor Kids // Memphis Tennessee Child Photography

“If I were a pattern,

I would be the pattern of paint that a bird would make if you dipped a bird’s wings in watercolor

and then set the bird loose inside a paper lantern.

I’m pretty sure that’s it!” 17386524

Personal // Portrait Photography Memphis TN

Today I am sharing sort of a catch all of some of the fun my twin daughters and I have been having this summer. I try to photograph my daughters on film at least once a month.  Since it is a lovely sunny summer here, this post is full of lots of water play surrounded by our friends and family.  Here you will see us cooling off with our best friend Erin while drinking chilly Sonic slushies, the day the twins learned how to “swim”, and family portraits from Father’s day with their new cousin, Koda.

This post is also part of the Film Mama blog circle. Follow along the links in provided in this circle to see other photographers from around the world, sharing their journey with film. This post also a mixed bag when it comes to film stock and camera, as there are three varieties of each here. I will try to identify for those who are interested. Please check out the next “Film Mama”, Tricia Burrough here.

ps.  Photographing the sky has become a favorite way for me to remember.  I love the look of clouds on film.

Courtney’s Baby Boy // Maternity Photography Memphis Tn

After Courtney told me she was decorating her nursery with elephants, all I could think about was how great the zoo would be for her shoot! I love how versatile it can be for providing great opportunities to have a good time with whatever you are doing there. ( plus, ELEPHANTS!)  Courtney herself is probably one of THE cutest “mama-to-be”.  Her little boy showed us how great life can be even before he officially arrived.  I’m grateful we had the opportunity to create together on this, because the zoo holds a special place for me and I delight in any chance to return.  (especially if FILM is involved!)

 

Now, on to the post…. It’s jam packed with light and love and wonder for what is to come…c_101c_102c_103c_104c_105c_106c_107c_108c_109c_110c_111c_112c_113c_114c_115c_116c_117c_118c_119
