July’s Instagram Images

I’ve been busy editing my first client’s portraits this week! Very exciting stuff! So, all I’ve had time to do is post on Instagram at night while I am lying in bed waiting to fall asleep. 🙂 Here are July’s images.

Follow me on Instagram and on Facebook, if you’d like.

I have been busy setting up my new portrait photography business!  I finally took the plunge and made the name, “Offshoots Photography,” official by registering it with the Secretary of State.  I also registered with the Department of Revenue for my retail sales license; applied for my local business license; hired a company to do my logo, here it is:

OFFSHOOTS PHOTOGRAPHY Logo Tagline jpgI hired the same company to design my business cards; created a Facebook Page (Like it here); created a website (check it out here); created all my forms from scratch; aaaaaand….the most exciting thing:

I had my first official portrait session yesterday! So exciting! I won’t be blogging about them here, but instead on my business blog at Offshoots Photography Blog.

There’s nothing there yet, but will be soon, so make sure to follow.

In the meantime, I will be posting here again, as well, now that the business is mostly set up. Here are some pet portraits of my pooches. I can’t believe I actually got them to sit still long enough to take these.

I do post daily on Instagram, so follow me there, too, @offshoots_photography.

I’ve been very busy editing hundreds of images from high school events including senior pictures, volleyball games, a powder puff game and homecoming.  Here is one of my favorite candid shots of my daughter on homecoming night and a photo of her pretty corsage.

I mentioned the other day that I was using a new post-processing program called Capture One Pro 9 and loving it. Since I mostly shoot nature photography, yesterday, I practiced taking some portraits of my lovely daughter, Caitlin. In this one she is backlit by the bright afternoon sun.

I complained about not having a reflector to chase the shadows away from her face. (Husband later went out and got me a 5-in-1 reflector kit. Love him; can’t wait to use it!) Yet, even without the reflector I was able to adjust for under-exposed Caitlin (AND the over-exposed sky) in Capture One.

What do you think?  So, I’m a little excited because I have never worked with a RAW converter before.  Thanks for bearing with me.  🙂

No Fair! Poor girl’s been in a knee brace and walking boot for almost 2 weeks now. Hopefully, only one more to go. Those darn growing pains!
