I tried to stay away from the usual portraits of happy kids smiling into the camera. I also wanted to try to give it a bit of an edge, to make it different, and to capture, subtly, the personalities of the kids. Thus the shot was done in front of a wooden garage door. Veronica thought of using a ladder as a prop and I thought it was a good idea.
The sun was coming in from camera left. I had the light set up at camera right. I set up a medium softbox on a lightstand just a few feet to the right aiming down at about a 45 degree angle and fired off a few frames. POP

I did take the time earlier this week though to relax and bring my little brat to the park. While there, he saw some flowers and decided to pick some for his Mom. I knew they wouldn't survive before she got home so I thought I should just take a picture. Click...

This photo may be a bit misleading seeing how calm the dogs look but they were far from it. It took forever to wrangle them into a halfway decent position. They just wanted to play. It was fun though.
There was rain scheduled to arrive on that day but luckily we were spared. It's been a wet Friday and it looks like the weekend will be more of the same. I'm not complaining though. We definitely need it.

We took this shot after the ceremony and before the party, on the church grounds. I tried to keep from doing a cliche Quince shot but I loved this little corner and couldn't resist.
We set the shot up pretty quickly though. All it took was for us to assemble the softbox, adjust the light, bring her into position, and bang out some shots. If only I had a wider angle lens. I really wanted to bring more elements of the gate into the shot as well as a lamp that was hanging directly above her. Well maybe on the next quince...
