Boys & Water Equals Fun!

Some boys just know how to have fun!  Our family was in Bowler Wisconsin visiting family.  While we were there we spent a wonderful afternoon at the Bowler Ranger Station.  A wonderful location for a photographer.  Auntie Colleen showed us the beautiful park.  She brought along her two sweet grandkids.  Brianna helped Amber and I capture senior portraits of Amber.  Of course I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the two boys.  They sure had fun playing in that stream while waiting on me.

Whirlwind

It’s almost September!  I can’t believe it….where did my summer go?  This reminds me of those little mini whirlwinds that comes up on those hot summer days.  They come in instantly, blow hard and fast, and then just as suddenly they are gone.  This is how my summer seems to have gone.  Yet I enjoyed the ride for the most part.

In fact there are a number of photographs that I’d like to share so I guess I’ll be doing that here in the future.

One of the big photograph events I covered was at the BHBFTA Show that was held in Thermopolis Wyoming a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been busy sorting all of those Big Horn Basin Foxtrotter Show pictures to make it easier for the customers to look at.  They will be sorted by rider numbers/names so it will be much easier to look at.  Hopefully in the next few days I will have it done and get them posted onto my site.   This show was a new challenge for me because it was held at an indoor arena.  So I got to try my skills for indoor photography.  Overall I’m pleased with the way they turned out considering everything.

One of the other events I love to cover is the Moonrock event held in Worland Wyoming.  It’s taken place this very weekend but sadly I’m not able to make it this year.  It’s one I love to cover because there are some awesome riders there!  Hopefully next year!

Right after the BHBFTA show our family took off for a trip to see family out in Bowler Wisconsin.  My daughter wanted her senior pictures taken there in Bowler.  My Auntie Colleen showed us an awesome spot and of course we had fun with it.  My auntie said it was like I had walked into a “Candy shop” because of all my ‘ahhhs and wows and we’ve gotta try this”!  I’ll be posting those after Amber selects her top favorites.

On the way there we stopped in to see my husband cousin Chris and his little family in Minnesota (outside of Alexandria).  It was a great place to stop in for about an hour or so for a break since we were driving straight through.  Of course as a photographer you can’t miss opportunities of capturing pictures of cute kids and family.  So naturally I took some quick pictures (my family didn’t think it was too quick-hee hee) of this cute family.  So today I’ll share them.  There weren’t so many to choose from so it was fast to choose from, edit, and post.  So enjoy.

Gleneske Family Postcard Picture Design

Using the collection of my favorite pictures I created this postcard using all of my digital scrapbook design skills to create this cute card.  Some of these digital papers and elements will be offered for sale at my scrapbook site in the future.

Here is the pictures posted separately.

What a Family

Yep, this is one great family!  They know how to have fun with each other.  I love seeing that and capturing it through the camera lens.  These photographs capture that fun.  I’ve known Peggy for a long time and she is one of the most devoted mothers I know.  These pictures were taken the day after Thanksgiving and I’m now just getting them posted.

A Brave Family

It’s Christmas season!  The orders are coming in and so I’ve gotten a behind on posting to the blog.  In fact I need to post some of the pictures I’ve taken recently…sometime.

For now I’m going to show the most recent family pictures.  I have to say they were Brave.  Why?  Well because it was cold out.  The wind came up which made it feel colder.  So we ended up taking the pictures inside a barn.

I love these kids…they are so cute and got personalities that match it.  They did great considering all the circumstances of the session.  The parents are awesome too.  They showed alot of patience with the kids and of course me.  hee hee.

Family Pictures

Tanya was so amazing!  The decision to get family pictures was made at the last minute.   Of course, we were loosing light quickly as it was getting to be dusk.  She was able to get everyone moving, changed, and ready in such a short time.  To top it off she she even had matching shirts on hand.  Fortunately they cooperated so well and moved so quickly that we were able to get several different family poses in!  Way to go Kevin and Tanya!

In these samples I thought it would be fun to show you different borders and how they can look with a photograph!  The right borders can really add to the photograph!  The same goes with a digital scapbook layout.

100% Cute Kids

Taking pictures is a passion…I love it!  Every session is a learning curve because you never know what will go especially with kids.  These kids are adorable!  Of course I had to get a little creative in order to get the older boy to smile and the younger boy to look at the camera.  Below is a digital scrapbook page I created using a few of the pictures.  I also included a few pictures of each of the kids.
