SO this was supposed to take place well before mothers day so that the images could be printed ad given to their mom for mothers day... well this didn't happen until yesterday bummer due to non stop rain 3 weekends in a row :rolleyes:

we made the most of a dreary day and took advantage of some nice soft light and even got lucky when the sun peeked through a few times (had to act fast as it was gone faster than it came)

I was pretty happy with these images, I stepped away from my normal muted tone processing on these since the colors really popped and I wanted to give off the springy vibe.

I got some great images of the adult kids with their mom and them some individual ones of each of them for mom to have as well.

Shawn, these are great. I think they are some of the best you've posted here.

Can you tell me what lens you used on #1? Are you lying on the ground??

The colors really pop here. Are these all natural light?

Thanks Mitchell!

These are all natural light (the soft over cast light really helped wrap around)

for #1 i laid on the ground and used an 85mm lens and just had them pretty far away and start walking toward me and told them to engage with each other and not to laugh at the photographer on the wet ground looking like a fool

NICE work here, man! I always feel like when I get a random mix of people, I freak out (ie. a family, but there's a random uncle in the mix, too). You did great here.

Also, love the t/s effect you got going on. I dig it.
