Ramsey and her Keepers

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Awhile back I had a quick mini-session with Kim, Doug, and mischievous little Ramsey in the little green space between the North End and the Boston’s financial district. Kim’s a fellow photographer, and we started off four years ago together trying to figure out what the heck to do with a speedlight.

Whenever I am trying to relax a kid and lose the cheese factor, I ask everyone to make a “very serious face.” Ramsey’s reactions to Kim and Doug are hilarious, to say the least. As you can see from the last photo, that little technique works like a charm almost every time.

I like this one best of the group shots, because it’s the perfect moment of Ramseyness. Let’s face it, the girl, like most her age, is a bit random. She alternates between playing shy and playing stage manager when someone new is around. I love the randomness of kids. They are always my favorite shots.

What a pleasure it is to photograph for friends.

and Ramsey’s little squishy smiley face when they lifted her up in the air.
Also, look at the way she looks at her daddy.)

This weekend was a rare opportunity for us to hang out with friends. We celebrated a birthday at the Providence Place Mall and I got to experience the magic that is Dave & Buster’s for the first time. Have you ever been there? It’s like Chuck-e-Cheese… for adults.

photography related commentary: It was interesting to shoot with my sweet f/1.4 lens on my Canon 5D. If you can believe it, all of the above images were taken in EXTREMELY dark conditions with no flash, using only available light. I’m excited to see what this lens-camera combination can do at a ridiculously dark reception venue. Whheeeee! /photography related commentary

I did have a lot of fun winning tickets and hanging out with friends. Sometimes I forget how good it is just to play… since my workweek easily takes over weekdays and weekends, I don’t always get a chance to be available when other people are hanging out.

And the prize Ali chose to buy with all of our ticket winnings is simultaneously disgusting and hilarious… a giant gummy bear! I can’t find the photo right now but I’ll post it later. Ewwwww!
