Engagement photo session

219/365
I'm not a portrait photographer, and I certainly don't pretend to be one. I'm much more comfortable photographing a landscape,or a cow, moose, bird etc.
A very big thing these days in photography is "the engagement portrait session." Many of the wedding photographer's that I have looked into for Miss J's wedding include an engagement photo session in their price. It's expensive! So, with Miss J and her fiance Steve's blessing, I decided to give it a go myself .


 Their dog Stanley waited patiently in the car, and before we finished up, Stanley made an appearance in front of the camera.
  
This is just a sample of some of the poses we did today. We had a fun time!I miss my Photoshop terribly, and none of the photos from today will go to print until I get my new computer and I get Photoshop back to work on them.

  7. Hi Christine,
    Thanks! Yes, Stanley is adorable and he does remind me of Wally. Only thing....I have a feeling Wally is a lot more mellow than Stanley is!

  8. Hi Nancy,
    Thanks. The weather actually made it a little easier for me, because I didn't have to deal with sun hot spots or any shadows.
