Sneak Peek ...

Yesterday I got to take photographs of my dear friends whom I met at church 12 years ago when we were all living up in Northern California. We've all since relocated to Southern California where this delightful family has begun a new and thriving church.

Here are just a couple quick pictures. The weather was BIZARRE - super bright sunny with FOG all around us. It made exposure quite tricky for this photographer (moi!). :-)

Ok. I gotta get back to editing. I think I've got it down to about 183 (but, who's counting?) pictures that I like. [wry grin] I've gotta lotta work (and I use the word "work" quite loosely here, cause really, is it "work" if you love what you're doing?!?) in front of me. Oh yeah, and I guess I should go get the kiddos up and fed for school and all...

I really, really love the second shot. The colors are excellent and the candidness is way cool.

Oh wow! The setting for the first picture is so awesome! Thanks for the comment on processing! Would you believe that my husband thinks photoshop messes up the picture. He said, "honey those pictures do not look real." LOL! I said, "That is the point..." :-)

That is totally bizarre weather! I really like the setting. That second picture really speaks to me for some reason. Really great shoot, Susan! As usual, damnit. You're good.

Wow I love those! Even though it was hard to work with, I bet they'll love to have their photos with such a unique weather type that no one else will have in theirs.

That's a crazy effect, with the bright light behind them in the cave. It looks like their standing in front of some portal to another world, and they're posing one last time before they say goodbye to their old life, turn around and embark on their new journey. Hmmm... I've been reading too much fantasy literature, huh? :)
