Reid's School Pictures

September 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I have been taking a lot of pictures of Reid over the years, and Jennie told me a few weeks ago that it was time for Reid's school pictures. Reid wasn't so fond of the idea. We went to the daycare he is in, went to the end of the hallway, and walked into the last room. Reid was petrified. Two soft boxes, props, backdrops, a whole row of kids staring at the person in front of the camera, and some lady with a camera. Reid wasn't impressed. I think it's because she was using a Nikon, but that's neither here nor there. Couldn't get a smile out of him no matter how much I jumped around the room, but all the other kids were laughing. We ended up with a mouth open (not smiling) picture next to a ladder. Fast forward a week. I bought a new lens (Tokina 11-16 f2.8), and was aching to try it out. I used it for the Heart Walk and loved it. It got me wondering what else I could use it on...

REID!!! Get your hawaiian shirt on, let's go to the bay! Barefoot walking down the court, Reid holding one hand, camera in the other, I brought him down to the bay and began to shoot. He was all smiles, which got me thinking...maybe we are both not into studios. I was getting some really crisp pictures with all the blur/bokeh in the right places. We headed down to the park at the end of the neighborhood and took a few more pictures before calling it a day.
