Models, Cowboys, Greasers, Ball Players, Cheerleaders and Pure Sweetness.

The last few weeks have been filled with lots of activity.

I've been on three field trips with my camera club since I got back from my sister's.

The first field trip took place at a park and we had live models to photograph.

It was so much fun and I learned a lot.

I also finally had a reason to use lightscribe.

I absolutely love creating labels for my CD's with the lightscribe technology.

I can etch the model right onto the label and personalize it however I wish.

I finally got the hang of it after the first two CD's.

I'm thrilled how it turned out and I was also pleased with my photos.

They may not be technically perfect, but I still think I did a great job.

We had one male model and three female models.

Photographing people is a lot harder than it looks.

It involves a lot of work but it is rewarding too.

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to photograph children.

Children have very short attention spans so it is even more difficult to get that perfect shot.

I fell in love with this one little boy.

His hair was so thick and curly and he was just so adorable.

How can you not love that hair, those eyes, that face?

I couldn't resist taking lots of photos of him, even when he was distracted looking for ladybugs

in the grass and ignoring all of us photographers.


I didn't give up.  I got a good shot of him with his big sister.

Can you see the ladybug on his sleeve?

There were other kids and cute outfits and costumes.

It was a blast.

Especially when you've got a blast from the past.

Aren't they cute?

This little girl liked making faces.

She was a great model.

I love this picture.  I think I captured the beauty of the little girl.

And Josh, the little boy is putting on his best outlaw cowboy face.

So cute.

And then there's always baseball.

I've never seen a younger more adorable cheerleader.

I really enjoyed photographing the kids.

They were so full of energy and spunk and they did their very best to please us.

Also, this morning I went to the Las Vegas 51's baseball game for a photo shoot.

The stadium was filled with elementary kids from all over the Clark County School District.

I thoroughly enjoyed shooting the game and it was cool that I had a special "Press Pass".

I haven't uploaded those photos yet but as soon as I get a chance I will post some on my blog.

Joining the camera club has really expanded my horizons.

Never in a million years would I ever have thought that I would photograph models or sports or children.

I have met so many wonderful people who love to share their knowledge and help others grow.

It is so refreshing.

I've also had more opportunities to go to places that I would otherwise not be allowed to go.

So far, it has been an amazing experience.


  1. I'm so proud of you and your d90! Yall make a great team and I have loved your work from the begining! I love photographing people and I'm telling ya, children are the hardest. Keep on keeping on because you are great!

  2. Drop Dead AMAZING photos. Love them all!

  3. Fantastic photos...all of them, but the kids are especially cute. Glad to hear you are enjoying your camera club!

    I hope your sister is doing well.

  4. your images are amazing!! and what fun you are having. I am jealous. the one with the girl making faces would be my Grand daughter, Kaelin. She is a ham and a good poser for the camera.

    I see I have much to learn.

  5. WOW! Great people shots! Been addicted to America's Next Top Model, so I love the idea of doing a photo shoot. And your kid shots are super duper. That must be some photo club you belong to, so inspiring.

  6. Breathtaking photos, I especially like the black and white ones, you have a real talent.

    A few weeks ago you left a comment on my Friday Shoot Out about your sisters hair falling out and she is right, you can feel each hair dieing. Your scalp feels as though you have lice and it gets sore. Nobody told me about that and it was a shock.

    When you hair grows back you can feel each follicle bursting through. My hair is growing longer now x

  7. Oh my gosh -- the pictures are amazing! No wonder you're excited. I think I need to find a photography club to play with!

    (And Camera Bag is easy as pie to work with and it's only $19).

  8. shooting people really is hard....but like you rewarding !

    your shots are amazing though....seriously, they are really good !

    and that little boy....swoon !

  9. JarieLyn, what fabulous photos! I would so love to have you photograph my grandkids although even this adoring grandmother has to admit none are as beautiful as that little boy!! Great to see you are having such terrific fun with your camera club.
