Long Exposures

What set out to be a nighttime astrophotography adventure with the San Diego Shooting Group turned into a fun, nighttime long-exposure adventure when clouds foiled our plans. Luckily, our beautiful model was willing to sit still, out in the cold, for about 30 seconds at a time, so we got some fun long exposures with her after the sun went down!

Retro Portraits on Fuji Superia Film

Last month’s outing with the San Diego Shooting Group took us downtown to Little Italy, where we met up with the gorgeous Desiree and handsome Ryan for some fun, retro-styled portraits! Shortly after, my husband and I headed to Las Vegas for a couple nights before jetsetting to Texas for my older sister’s graduation from the Dallas Fire Academy. While in Texas, we spent Saturday on a boat at Lake Ray Hubbard, and stopped into the Arlington Museum of Art to check out the Ansel Adams: Masterworks exhibit! Here are some favorites from these adventures.

I rocked my trusty Nikon N8008 and photographed all of these on 35mm Fuji Superia 400 film. :) I’m posting these as part of a blog circle with other Film Mama’s, so please check out the next blog in the circle: Madison WI family photographer Gretchen Willis Photography!

San Diego Shooting Group – La Jolla – June 2014

Last week, the San Diego Shooting Group met up in La Jolla for some portrait fun with an adorable family and a married couple! When I got home, I was sad to realize that I hadn’t captured a single image of the beautiful family! I suppose I was too busy helping the other photographers, though I did get a few great images of their Lego-loving son, Brennan!

Here are some image of Brennan, Betty & Eric, and the crew in action!

San Diego Shooting Group – Pin-Up Styled Session

This month’s event for the San Diego Shooting Group took us down to Coronado for some pin-up styled fun! We had two gorgeous models decked out in retro attire, and had a blast walking down Orange Avenue to capture some fun portraits! I didn’t spend a lot of time photographing during this outing, but here are some favorites, starting with a shot of the group (minus me!).

San Diego Shooting Group – Del Mar Bridals

The latest event for the San Diego Shooting Group took us to Del Mar, where we photographed the fabulous newlyweds Sarah and Reuben in their wedding attire! Sarah is an amazing photographer too, and I was so happy that she was willing to model for some fun photos on the beach! Though I didn’t capture too many images since I spent a lot of time holding a reflector for the other photographers, here are some favorites. :)
