photography practice

The main reason I want to learn how to photograph is to catch glimpses of people in candid moments. I think a good photographer can capture the beauty of a person without that person even knowing.

I went to a birthday party for a two-year-old last weekend. I practiced taking candid shots. I was lucky to have such beautiful subjects.

Here are the results.

Oh, and this two-year-old just happens to have a new baby brother.  I promise his mom wasn't posing for this shot. Just laughing at something. Gorgeous.

I know. You just want to hold him.


  1. Hi! It's Jessica Hoopes! I think you're photos are looking wonderful. Taking pictures is such a fun thing to get into. Just curious what kind of camera and lens you are using? I like to see how other lenses work.

  2. Holy cow! Is that Sally? I didn't know she was moving there. Lucky! Can't believe that she has two kids now.
    And your pictures are always beautiful. You have talent girl.
