The Ofenlochs ~ Family Time
WHAT: Families | WHEN: October 30, 2008
|I love to photograph families that are just so laid back and easy going. It makes for a fun session, and it really makes a difference in the final images when you see real expressions and real personalities. I had the pleasure of photographing the Ofenlochs and their precious little girl, Morgan, recently, and I knew these were my kind of people when Melanie and I spoke on the phone and she said she didn't want any of the standard/traditional, everyone-sit-on-the-ground kind of images. So we headed down to Deep Ellum on a Sunday afternoon for a little urban backdrop for their images. Perfect weather, great light, and the sweetest little girl made for a fantastic session.
I'm really digging the 85mm f/1.4 lens lately. It's a little tricky getting focus all the time when shooting wide open at f/1.4, but when it's on, it's buttah. I love how the background just fades away.
Here are just a couple of my favorites of Morgan. The cautious stare and the way she's clinging to her favorite stuffed animal as she still getting used to me is such an authentic reaction.
