So after our engagement session last week, Chris and I couldn’t wait to get outside with our cameras. Luckily, I had a date coming up with Jen, Justin, and Zoey to do some family pictures. Chris borrowed some lenses from work (Canon, for me, he had to just use his ol’ kit lens), and we practiced a bit at our Memorial Day bbq. Chris even went scouting around Mission Trails for a good place to take our pictures. He found an adorable little park in a quiet neighborhood up there, complete (to Jen’s delight) with thistles and miscellaneous pretty weeds.
Miss Zo was not a happy camper most of the time, despite our post-nap photo jaunt. We did manage to get some happy baby family pictures, but for the most part we had to keep the trio pictures pretty simple in order to keep her attention. You can’t tell it in this picture, but she’s actually looking past the camera at Chris- whom she adores. Jen says Zo’s in love with all the dark haired guys.
When Zoey wasn’t having it anymore, Chris kept an eye on her while we began some more artsy, amidst the thistles pictures. Seriously, these two are just so cute. I’m so happy they were all about sitting in a pile of weeds for the look we were going for. Best guinea pigs ever.
I was using Chris’ work’s 24 mm lens for these ones… you have to get super close, but you get so much extra width than with my 50 mm. I’m a little bit in love with that lens. And the zoom lens. Zoom lenses are fun.
So this was our first official tag team photo shoot. Yay for Team Trementozzi! Although… that is kind of a mouthful of a name… maybe we’ll need to come up with something snazzier. Any suggestions? 😉
