My First Photo Shoot!

When my sister-in-law asked me to take pictures for their Christmas card, I happily agreed. I have been wanting to and scared to try a shoot like this for a long time. It was exciting to make it finally happen.

We met on Sunday at the Palomares House in Fallbrook. It was a beautiful afternoon and I took lots of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites.

Jay, Kelly and Veronica

Meet Beeker.
Beeker is Veronica's favorite pal. They go everywhere together.
Beeker was an important part of the shoot.
Have you ever seen a better dressed mouse?

I love this picture of Veronica and Beeker.

And here Veronica looks like a little mouse herself, peering through a mouse hole.

Do you see Beeker's tail in this one?

Thank you Jay, Kelly and Veronica for letting me take photos of you. I had a great time with all of you. Beeker too.

I can't believe how big Veronica is! She was in my class a couple of years ago and Beeker was a favorite then too!
Love the pictures Greta, great job.

Great shots!
I just recently got a new Canon so I have been having fun with it. I have my first practice photo shoot today for my friends kids. It shall be fun!

Thanks, everyone for your kind words. It is scary to put pictures out there when there are so many amazing photographers who are so much better than me.
But I can't stop taking them and the more I do, the more I am learning.
Thanks for the encouragement.

I think your photos are great. Just a word of encouragement: Tom took thousands of photos last summer and it was a great learning/growing experience for him. If you love to shoot, do it! I'm in the process of learning certain photo shooting skills, and I'm looking forward to our trip to the Philippines next month. I plan on practicing a lot! :)
