Awe. Thanks guys! I just did a little mini session with my daughter and Priss. I'll share a few after I edit:)

As far as tips and tricks.....hmmmmmm. Learning lighting and how it can work for you and against you is key. I've been doing photography as a profession for 9 years now. It's a journey and even still I'm constantly learning new things. It's funny though, once you get light it all kinda clicks:). Early morning and late afternoon light is always the best time to shoot. You'll avoid harsh shadows when the sun is low In the sky. I prefer late afternoon backlight:) Not much competes with a beautiful halo of light in a mane and tail or a young child's hair. It's magic.

Here is a few more from our quickie session. As you can tell, Priss is a bit portly so slimming her down a bit is a big goal of ours:) It was dinner time too so you can sense her irritation with this nonsense photo shoot in the closeup with my daughter…lol

Absolutely stunning. Its a good thing you take a lot of pictures -- I'm not sure if anyone has told you but this forum requires LOTS of pictures

Also that field is beautiful. Can I pitch a tent?

Lol. I should do just fine on the forum if lots of photos is a requirement. I'm great at that:)

Somehow I managed to pull color out of our drought ridden Northern California back yard. It certainly looks better in photos than in real life I think:).

Thank you! Hope nobody gets sick of seeing My new favorite model.
