After several days of rain last week, we’ve been blessed with beautiful weather this weekend. To make it all the better, we’ve been graced with a stunning display of blossoming trees throughout the city.
I am planning to do a photo shoot of my friend’s children in front of some blossoming trees this week so I took Claire out on Friday to practice. I hadn’t shot at this particular location before and I wanted to try it out before attempting photos of someone else’s children. I’m glad I did because I found that I didn’t like my chosen aperature in several of the shots. I love a good background blur (“bokeh”) but I overdid it occasionally, so much that the blossoms were just a blur of pink without any form or differentiation. I like the ones I’ve posted here; I discarded many others because of bad bokeh!
The following few pictures are belly-laugh shots:
I “upped” the drama on a couple of photos. Usually I prefer photos quite natural but I thought these suited a little something more:
Claire’s beautiful dress was specially picked by her Uncle Dorian. Apparently, she’s the only princess in Canada with this dress! Claire is also wearing a very special rosary from her godmother, Auntie Sylvie. Claire says the blues in the rosary and the dress match and therefore, the two items should be worn together!
