On Campus

Monday of this week I had the opportunity to do some really fun photography. I met a wonderful family on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge for some very special photographs. We attracted quite a few onlookers during our session, and that may or may not be due to the antics the mothers pulled for smiles. The children were all dressed in beautiful traditional Korean clothing. This clothing is usually worn for the celebration of the child's first birthday. In Korea, first birthdays are a major event. Although these little ones have all already celebrated their first birthdays, their mothers wanted photos of them in their outfits together. It was my pleasure to capture the images!!!

The clothing makes for some very colorful images that seem to pop from their surroundings. Aside from the vivid colorations, intricate details make the clothing very interesting. The clothing, however, is only a part of the images, and these children had upbeat personalities to give the photographs what is needed to transform them from snapshot to keepsake.

Even though the weather is still somewhat hit and miss this early in the year, we were blessed with a beautiful afternoon for this session. Signs of impending spring are everywhere. Azealias are beginning to bloom and clover is sprouting up everywhere. The campus of LSU is loaded with locations for portrait work. The archetecture and landscaping make it a very picturesque backdrop for any type of photography.

Book your spring session now!!!
