Portraits of a 6 Year Old: Vancouver, WA

22 Sep portraits in Vancouver, WA

Yesterday I hopped over to a park in Vancouver, Washington with my children to take some portraits. This little girls has grown up so fast and after having her 6th birthday I had to find the time to take her photograph to send portraits to her relatives and to mark her growth through the years. We have a tradition of taking her photograph every year at the same park and it is fun to see her change!

After finishing the quick mini shoot yesterday I decided to take my photograph editing work to a coffee shop in Camas and work to get the basics of lightroom figured out. I had previously had a Photoshop elements program on my Macbook, but after that died I was forced to switch to Creative Suite. I found that there are some things that are a lot easier in Lightroom like if you have a photograph with a very similar exposure you can use the same setting from your last edit just by clicking ctrl-alt-v. I almost always ended up making some other minor adjustments, but this saved me some time.

So now that my youngest is off to school full time I have been thinking a lot more about what I am going to “do” with my time. I have been thinking about selling my landscape photographs on Etsy, starting to do birth photography, and doing more maternity and infant photography. I would love to do some traveling and take photographs on the road, i.e. will travel for work. 😉 I am also playing around with setting up a new blog if I do I will make sure to highlight that here.

Of course I will continue to spend time working on Brasier Law’s website and general online presence and being available to my kids. So for now I am free to explore my options and take landscape, close up, and portrait photographs as I see fit. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

13 Jun

Fleeting moments surround us, really there is no moment or thing that is permanent and ever lasting. While my days sometimes seem long due to mishaps or displays of independence by a certain 3 year old or 6 year old, I have lately come to notice that this time of childhood that I get to enjoy with my children is coming to an end sooner than I would like. My older child is finishing up kindergarten and getting into the realm of sleep overs and full days of school. My time of seeing my kids in their playful, inquisitive, imaginative moments is fleeting and I hope that I can absorb as much as possible.
