Mason… Tacoma Children’s Photographer

I took a few photos of my friends son the other day. Thought I’d share some. It was right in the middle of the day, so I was working with some harsh sunlight. Luckily he was a perfect little model. Oh and he’s got the most beautiful eyes! It’s really not fair! 😉









All photos taken with Nikon D700 and Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens.

    I love your photography. I wish you lived closer and I would hire you to take pictures of Jackson. I am sure that once you saw his eyes and lashes you would die. He also has a really cute dimple.

    i love these, Care! they’re amazing. middle of the day sunlight is so hard… i think i maybe have 1 midday photo that i like. what are your tricks? it seems to be the only time we can go outside. and i don’t have much shade nearby, not to mention a little model who doesn’t stay still!

    Shannon – why do boys always get the good eyelashes!? haha. Your son has dimples too!? Double cutie 🙂

    Thanks Mommyto2!

    Elizabeth – I do have some tricks for midday sun. Unfortunately, we moms have to take pics when we can, which usually doesn’t mean beautiful evening light!! The main thing is to shoot into the shade. If there is a patch of shade and sunny everywhere else, put your kid in the shade, but have them facing towards the bright light. If they are turned with their back to the sun and in the shade, then you will get that yucky blown background and no catchlights.

    Also, you could try to backlight your subject. The key to this is to avoid light backgrounds (ie: the sky) at all costs. You don’t want a huge blown white sky as your background. So what you look for is trees/bushes blocking the sun (like in the pic w/ the dandelion and the rain boots). It will give a nice sparkly look to the bokeh in the trees. Another thing is dont be scared of full sun. It can work if your kid has sunglasses on or if there is a really dark background (shaded trees/red brick house) etc. Hope that helps 🙂

    Thanks Toliver & Christana 🙂

    Tabitha – glad you like them! I have a CD with your name on it. Hope to see you soon! 🙂
