Airport Homecoming - Newport Family

Airport Homecoming - Newport Family

On February 20th I had the honor of photographing a dad returning home from his deployment a week early to meet his newborn daughter! 

What a beautiful moment that was. 

This little lady was born on January 27th; so just over one month old and was as cute as could be. 

Scroll through these photos to see this moment captured in photos.

Military Mom - Nursing Portraits

Military Mom - Nursing Portraits

First off, I have an AMAZING husband who supports everything I want to do, love to do, and suggests the best things. Like yesterday, while on a lunch break, he took these portraits of myself nursing our daughter and I edited them. He's getting pretty good, Huh?!

Some of you may know that we are a 'dul mil' family and actually met in Fire Controlmen A School way back in Jan 2015. I am a reservist and he is active duty stationed here in San Diego. This weekend was a drill weekend where I go in with my unit who supports LCS ships in port....

But that doesn't change my other responsibilities at home.

Nursing and nurturing this sweet girl is one of the greatest responsibilities I have ever had the privilege to possess.

This little girl is the light of our world and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am so grateful to be her mother to continue to grow with her.

I hope you enjoy just these couple of photos.

Free-lensing & Double Exposure in Camera

In Camera Art!


I have continued to practice free-lensing; it's so freeing! (see what I did there? haha). Also, In-camera double exposure - Ever hear of it? Well, I tried it for the first time today on my Canon 6D MII!

Here are just some normal portraits of my daughter:





Freelensing with the Canon 100mm on my 6DmII:








ANNDDD The in-camera double exposures!




Honestly, I am really excited to play around with these in-camera double exposures. Hopefully, I will learn more tips and tricks along the way to land more killer shots!

Keep up with my family and photography over on Facebook if you'd like; I'd love to have you.

WEEKLY TOP TEN - FREELENSING

I tried freelensing for the first time!!! I regularly participate in Jackie Jeans weekly challenges. This last week I was very surprised to see freelensing as the challenge. I had never done this before but have seen it done beautifully in the oast by others. 

Freelensing is where you detach your lens from your camera, hold it in front of your lens mount and shoot through it. It creates interesting out of focus areas. 

Here are some of the other photos I took while freelensing:
