You Ought to Be in Pictures

Picture Party – Images by Christine Prichard

We hosted a multiple photo session bonanza at The Okey Dokey Ranch last week. Foul weather forced us into the garage; we had hoped to do an outdoor shoot. But we managed to get some fun and unique images anyway. Flash was a wonderful assistant, right-hand man and post-production whiz. Marley and Avery even got into the spirit by entertaining young and old while we shot, and shot, and shot.

A big thank you to the families, and especially the children we photographed–you were the best!

I’m posting some of my favorites here. Don’t you just love the sepia and hand-colored versions?

Funds raised from this shoot were donated to Alabama Waldorf School.

  1. Outstanding pictures! It’s clear the kids felt at ease and you can really see their personalities shine through.

  2. Thank you, Allison. I really try to help people I photograph to relax and be themselves during a shoot. A lot of times, this means I am pretty relaxed and silly before, during and after taking pictures. It also helps to have Flash make stuffed bunnies dance behind my head and Marley make a painting of a monkey bop in the background. It really was a team effort.
