This is a twin edition in two ways: Twin as in dual photo sessions to share with you & twin as in Twins!
I had the privilege of photographing the precious twin boys of some friends of ours from Sunday school. We have been in class together for 9 years now and have built great relationships with each and every couple in there! I am so thankful for the people the Lord has placed in our lives!
Without further adieu, here are my favorites from their session.
This next family is also from our church, I did not know them well before the session, but I feel like I do now! They had the clever idea of coming in their camo shirts in honor of their love of hunting. Here are just a few of my favorites from their session……I had to copy and paste from Facebook as I just cleaned them off my computer. (hoping to avoid another crash by keeping my photo numbers down!)
I am so very thankful that the Lord is blessing our family with these photo jobs, I had 2 more sessions this weekend that still await editing! I hope to get a few more sessions in before its too cold, because once that happens, I am out of a job!
I don’t know enough about my camera to deal with yellow-orange inside lights and bad lighting. Dale promised me he’d look into building me a frame of some sort to try to reflect the natural light that comes in our bedroom window in hopes of creating a faux studio of sorts. We shall see! I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed and stunned that people are calling me to take their photos! No pressure, right?!?!?!??! 🙂
I am so so thankful to be able to “play” at this and still suppliment our income during this rough patch.
Head to post number 2 for today: Pizza Dip! A Ferguson Family FAVORITE!!
Stunned that people are calling you to do their photos?? I wouldn’t be-you have real talent!!
So awesome how God supplies our needs. The pictures are beautiful as are the families. God is an awesome God.
Oh how blessed those beautiful families are to have a photographer like you in their lives! Fantastic photos – every one of them. Nice going Tonya!!
Another great job T! Keep it up.
p.s. making your pizza dip for weekend football snack!!
Great pictures, Tonya! I especially like the black and white ones with the camo family. Lovely!! So glad that God is providing for you guys through your talent.
And have you tried manually setting your white balance inside? Also, I find that my external flash REALLY helps (it’s an SB-600 for my Nikon) for those dark interior shots–I bounce it off the ceiling and it adds a nice soft light.
Yes! I do P and then adjust my White balance To Tungsten, but I am not happy enough with the results to do a whole shoot this way. I still have to play with the color a lot during editing. (Its food photos in my kitchen I use it for) I have heard that about external flashes! I really hate using my flash at all, but I was told the same thing you said, it adds a soft light and doesn’t blow the shot like regular in your face flash. Sounds like that may be something to invest in! Enjoy your day, Jenna!
Your pictures are great. You take them very well! What type of camera do you use? I newly discovered your blog and have enjoyed learning about you and your family so far.
Thank you! Dale bought me my 1st SLR camera last year for a present for Mothers Day, Christmas, Anniversary…you get the idea! 🙂 I have the standard Canon Rebel xs with the lens it came with. Someday I’d like to get a new lens or an external flash, but for now, the camera itself broke the bank!!! I am really happy with Canon. Glad you are here and glad to hear from you~ T 🙂
Love the photos of both families but what I really love is the fact that they always look very natural and like they are just out having a day of family fun!
God is Good!
VERY good picture lady!!!!!
Yep! That wondrous God of ours always turns “bad” into “good” for those who love Him! (Now that is a very rough paraphrase!)
Tonya, you really are a talented photographer!! I think it is so cool that you are able to use this fun, creative outlet to make money AND bless other families with great portraits. I can see your creative “eye” developing and it’s so much fun. Your photos are great and it looks like you and your subjects are having fun, which is not always the case with family pictures!
