Let me just start off by saying that this is the most fun I've had shooting in a good long while! I teamed up with a good friend of mine and we had an amazing time planning and shooting this session. We had a fun girl's weekend in San Diego and did this shoot in 2 parts - the first was an Irish renaissance princess inspired shoot in San Diego's Balboa Park. The second part was more of a boho look done at sunrise in a grassy area we found while driving around and getting lost - haha! We were actually stopped by the police just as we were leaving and told we were in a conservatory and there was no photography allowed. I didn't see a sign and honestly had no clue - you can shoot almost anywhere you want here in Arizona so that was a shocker. Luckily, Suzy was very careful with her words and managed to talk us out of a $500 fine. Eek! Anyhow, I am eternally thankful he showed up AFTER we finished and not before. The light was AMAZING and changed so much in a short period of time. The morning started off with a thick fog, and as the sun started to rise and slowly permeate the fog, everything took on a stunning hazy, golden hue. I've never seen light like this before, but it was, simply put, glorious!

I think it goes without saying that the photography gods were smiling down upon us for both of our shoots with Lily. Aside from the minor incident at the grassy sunrise location, we somehow managed a few moments to shoot in an empty tunnel/walkway at Balboa Park on Saturday. For those of you who have been there, you'll know how lucky we got. I didn't have to Photoshop a single person out of those images, which is nothing short of a miracle! We are doing another fun shoot together with a gorgeous set of twins next weekend, and I can't wait! These types of shoots are my very favorites. As I near the end of my pregnancy and am winding down on client work, doing these projects is fun, rewarding, and stress free.

Without further ado, here is part I of our shoot with Lily - our little Irish princess. She has been likened by many to a real life Disney Merida from Brave. I totally see it! Lily rocked both of these shoots; so much credit goes to this little lady for how these images turned out. She was such a talented model and one of the best kids I've had the pleasure of working with. I'm already planning in my head a shoot with her in the red rocks.

So the powers that be came in and turned 2/3 of this share into links (which I hate), so if you'd really like to see this session and all of the pics I deleted, you can go to my BLOG (external link) and check these out there.

Always a pleasure to see your portraits Lisa. There's no such thing as over-sharing.

I'm sure most folk seeing these always want to know how they were processed.

Very best,

Nice series, but in the "Share" areas IMAGE POSTING RULES specifically state: "Do not use the forum as your image gallery, post only the best of the best and link to the rest."
This means we allow 2 attachments by the OP per thread, OR 8 embedded (linked) images, OR a combination of 2 attachments + 6 embedded (linked) images, totaling 8 per thread. (Maximum 1280 pixels on any side.) You can always just post a link to more, though, or better yet, post a link to a gallery so we don't have to click on each image link.
Some exceptions are group threads, like "Show Me...", "Post your best...", equipment reviews, Tutorials, etc.
You may add a few additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post and request.

For the Mods...


FrankC - 20D, RAW, Manual everything...
Classic Carz, Racing, Air Show, Flowers.
Find the light... A few Car Lighting Tips, and MOVE YOUR FEET!
Have you thought about making your own book? // Need an exposure crutch?
New Image Size Limits: Image must not exceed 1600 pixels on any side.

Thank you! :) You can check out the entire shoot on my BLOG (external link) - links are ugly and pointless so I deleted them. And yes, we are expecting a baby girl in just a few more months. She should be here in late-April! :)

Awesome! These are incredibly stunning shots across the board. Just wow.

FWIW, linking to a blog or Flickr album is the way to go. I don't know if you noticed, but when you use the "Upload images" and host directly on the board, the message board software does horrible, low-quality recompression of the images that make tack sharp DSLR shots look like they came out of a tiny sensor point and shoot. Even if it were allowed, it wouldn't do your shots justice. The Flickr-hosted photos look great though, their downsampling is worlds better.

I love the last 2. Very whimsical. I wonder how #7 would be if you added a bit of motion blur to her hair?
