Playing Photographer

There isn’t much I wouldn’t do for a good picture (not to say that it always turns out good)... But I actually love those times when everyone else kind of looks at me strangely and thinks to themselves (or out loud).... “What is she taking a picture of?”

Recently a friend asked me to take some engagement photos of them at the fair (!!!) = LOVELY #1.

That is so exciting to me and I want to make sure that all of the photos turn out exactly like she wants them too. So - when I heard my sister and her family were headed to the fair for the day, I tagged along for a few hours (LOVELY #2) so I could get some practice shots (LOVELY #3).

Enter the reason people look at me strangely. I just kind of wandered around with my camera and monopod (graciously lent to me by a friend = LOVELY #4) and set up shop sometimes in the middle of the walkway so people had no choice but to wonder - who are these super cool people that they have their OWN photographer.

My sister said: “Will you just follow us around everywhere and be our life photographer?” haha. If dreams would come true (LOVELY #5). (and if you could get paid to do that and not have to take boring pictures of celebrities, ugh.)

Anyhow - I took SO many photos that I don’t know when I’ll have time to sift through them all - but these are two that I fell in love with!

 Ferris Wheel Bokeh = LOVELY #6
If you like the fair photos come back often - I have a feeling there will be a lot in the coming days.

  3. A few things: 1. What a great idea to take engagement photos at the fair! Who thinks of that? So much potential for awesome shots! 2. You are so talented. 3. That first pic is totally Christmas card worthy! Such a cute little fam!
