Photo class outtakes

Because I've been keeping up so well with life lately, I decided to take another photography class. This one is focused on photographing children, and not offered all the time, so I decided to jump on it. I made Julia sit through two photoshoots today, and got a few outtakes I thought my family might enjoy.

First photoshoot - you can see how excited she was to model for me:

I got smart and gave her makeup brushes and jewelry to keep her happy for the second one, and ended up with some cutie photos:

Well how can you expect her to know how makeup brushes work when I never use them?
She does know they can be used to highlight your lips.
She also gets that you make funny faces while using them.
"Julia please put that down AND look at me for one second so I can get a decent shot of you."
  (And then I moved her to the bed, where I had actually calibrated the white balance for...)

Always happy giggles when the blanket makes an appearance.
Again with the makeup brush fails.


We've got to do something about that hair.

There we go. Perfect solution. And versatile.

Pearl city over here.

It's SO HARD being a baby with pearls!
Of course I have eight thousand more but that should be enough to make my mom happy for a little while. :) When it rains, it pours around here.


  1. Love love love! I seriously cannot get enough pictures of that kid. How is she possibly this big?! She's going to be wearing real make-up before we know it! And your photos are looking fantastic! I'm jealous that you have such an adorable little model. I can't wait for my model to get here!

  2. Favorite is the powder brush on the foot. Great pictures!!

  3. The first three crack me up every time I look at them! It's amazing how kids can go from one emotion to a completely opposite one so quickly. That's cool you're taking a class, I'm jealous. I can't wait to see the best pics of the shoot too.
