Hope everybody had fantastic holidays and that 2015 is off to a good start. I’m a bit behind in my blogging again. I’m not sure where the time went with getting settled after coming back from the trip to the outer banks just before Thanksgiving, then getting ready for the Christmas and New Years along with all the different holiday gatherings with family and friends, time just seemed to fly by.
After Christmas we went up north to our place in Kalkaska for a week and our granddaughter Chyanne came along, since it would probably be the only chance for her to come up this winter to get to snowmobile. There wasn’t a lot of snow when we got there but it snowed about everyday that we were there so she was able to get some snowmobiling in, yeah. While it was snowing one of the first days up there, I did a photo session of Chyanne outside in the snow. I must admit it was about 13 degrees out but Chyanne was a real trouper. With the temperature being so cold I had to keep my camera acclimated to the cold by keeping it in the screened in room/porch off the back of our place when we would come in to warm up so that the lens wouldn’t fog up every time we went back outside. We started going out front using pine trees as the background, but as I was going out to get my camera from the screened in room/porch I thought I might be able to have Chyanne out in the furthest corner of the deck and I could get some images shooting through the doorway from the “porch” with the woods full of bare tree branches as background. This was better for Chyanne because she was so close to be able to go in to get warm, it was a matter of going out for about 5 to 10 minutes and then coming in to get warm again. We got some really nice images and just to let you know Chyanne picked out her outfits not me, just saying I wouldn’t be asking her to wear sleeveless dress in such cold weather. Again I have to thank Chyanne for being such a good model and trouper to allow me to get some portraits of her in the snow and cold. I love them.
Thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day!
