smiles…contagious {fresno clovis wedding photographer}

April 26, 2010

Seriously… when you look at a photo of someone smiling, don’t you find yourself smiling back?  I mean, of course I am not suggesting that the person in the photo can see you… that would just be crazy talk.  But I find smiles are so contagious!!  This is one of my all-time favorite photos… it is from my early years, so its not the best photo I’ve ever taken, but I just love the happiness that is oozing out of it!  This photo of this bride’s smile totally captures her personality… simply beautiful!

    Was she the bride or one of the guests? Perhaps she found true love…

    Perhaps it is a reflection of her contentment, finally finding true love…

m&m’s make people smile… cow patties do not {clovis fresno family portraits} Image

m&m’s make people smile… cow patties do not {clovis fresno family portraits}

April 23, 2010

It is a common theme… M&M’s seem to make an appearance when children are getting their photo taken.  Or atleast sugar of some kind.  Yes, sometimes it causes a nice gooey chocolate mess all over a white shirt, but hey, the child is happy!!  And we all like photos of happy children, right??  We enjoyed M&M’s at this family shoot, and they once again worked their magic.  Even though it was SO cold, everyone managed to smile through the shivering!  Seriously, such a beautiful family… you look like you all stepped out of a fashion magazine… and I had such a wonderful time meeting everyone!  Towards the end of the shoot, we had GORGEOUS early evening light, and I was snapping away in the field, adoring the way the soft rays were making golden skin tones and terrifically blue skies, when it happened.  I sunk my feet into something gushy… one of the cow patties that we had just been talking about trying to avoid.  Fortunately only two people were around to see me humiliate myself… but hey, it was worth it!  Shoes and white shirts can all be washed, and precious photos remain for a lifetime.
