Little Olivia said hello to us on March 16, 2012, and her awesome grandmother and I are so psyched to have her in our lives!
Is she too cute or what? Can’t wait to get her on a surfboard – lol
The first few days of life are so special and exciting, and about 10 -14 days old is the perfect time to do newborn portraits. Olivia was 10 days old in this one.
Do you know anyone who is expecting! Do them a huge favor and make them do a portrait of their newborn. It is a unique time that goes by so very fast, and besides having these newborn portraits for you and your family, newborn portraits are perfect for birth announcements, and make perfect gifts for grandparents, godparents and the entire family.
While in Ithaca, NY visiting Olivia and her parents I got to sneak out and make some pictures, this waterfall just outside of town is one of my favorites.
As a professional photographer in the Outer Banks I’ve had a very prolific few days lately, in addition to working with The Island School of Dance in Nags Head, N.C. all week and making images like this,
I made this image while on my run on Tuesday morning, which is part of my iPhone Photo du Jour project.
You can check out many more images from IPPDJ project ( and even purchase one – they make great gifts )
This family portrait on the beach in Corolla was made the same morning,
and this picture was made later the same evening at the Nags Head Pier.
For the techies out there, it was made with a 30 second exposure at f22, and processed in Adobe Lightroom 4 and Photoshop 4.
And ah, oh yeah, the running streak is still going strong at 1842 days.
