The first time we met Olivia, she was in her mommy’s belly.

Now she’s a walking, talking, cute machine! Lesley, Marques, and Olivia took a run through the forest on a crisp October day and we photographed the whole adventure.

Private Photo Lesson

November 22, 2011 § 2 Comments

During a family photography session last month, we met Kelly.

Kelly had recently acquired an SLR digital camera and wanted to learn more about how to make better photographs with it. This weekend, we got together for a private lesson.

We spent an hour and a half discussing the foundations of photography. We covered basic exposure, composition and camera settings. Then we went outside with her daughter to practice these new techniques. We also asked Kelly to follow up with us by emailing examples of her pictures for critique or if she has any additional questions while she is making pictures. We cannot wait to see how she progresses!

Please contact studio@studiostarling.com if you are interested in a private lesson, small group lesson or perhaps as a gift.

The Summers-Francis family is lovely.

On a lovely fall morning this whole clan got together just for us! Cousins, siblings, patriarchs!

Fun, adorable kids, every last one of them! We have been making photographs with this family since the newborn stage, and are thrilled to see this family grow!

Thank you Mommies!

We spent Saturday morning with a lovely Hyde Park couple and their newborn twins. I just had to post this one of all of them right away, more to come.

Spring is here, rain and spring flowers.

I went with Cy and niece Penelope and nephew Thomas to have some fun and make some photos in the Daffodil Glen at Morton Arboretum.

Family Vacation

This month, my family and I took a much needed vacation.

We traveled to the Gulf Coast of Alabama, where my parents are snowbirds. We had a great time and I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures.
