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!

  • Stunning… that first photo is one of your best ever! And you are right, the post processing is perfect for these shots, very romantic.ReplyCancel

  • She has a fabulous belly laugh… it makes me want to laugh with her!

    I just love the second last photo of her looking down, and the post-processing is perfect for it too.

    Her dress is gorgeous, so special that her Uncle bought it. 🙂
