Bob, Chris, and Jackson

Jackson's 2nd birthday is in two weeks so I invited Bob and Chris to come in for a quick family portrait. We cannot believe how big jackson is getting and how grown up he looks! Today was also my first day working as an intern at VIP studio in Waconia. I toured the studio and grounds with Mark Kiefer and was able to assist him on a senior shoot. I also met his wife Krish, and their two children Sage and Skye. Both Mark and Krish are amazing photographers and I am honored to be able to intern with them.

Here are some more outdoor shots. I was able to photograph this wonderful woman Akqwana. She is as sweet as she is attractive! I am hoping to get her mother in for a mother daughter portrait.

I had another shoot today. My classmate Emily was kind enough to model for me.

Kelly and Terry

I got to take some outdoor portraits on Sunday. We shot at Parkers Lake Park in Plymouth. It was a beautiful day, but it was very windy which made it a little difficult to get the lighting in the exact position. It made my heart glad when Kelly asked if we could convert any of these pictures to Black and White. It seems to me that the general public has forgotten how beautiful and timeless a black and white portrait can be.

The Big news around the Geller household is that Amy has gotten herself a new toothbrush, a "loud one" just like mommy. Her new electric toothbrush features her favorite cartoon star Dora!. We had a great seminar at school yesterday. The guest speaker was Julie Klassmeyer. Julie is an award winning photographer who specializes in baby and children fine art portraiture. The Vikings suffered another tough lose this weekend in a game they should of won to the Detroit Lions. Amy was shouting go Vikes with us, and go gophers, which she learned at her daycare. She described the action as "the boy ran and fell down." Here are some photos from my fist shooting assignment for Portraiture II staring Jim Jackson and our assistant Jenna.
