2007 Year in Review

This the first time Paula Swift Photography has created a year in review slideshow. It was a time consuming task but a fun one. It was great to remember all the wonderful people I had met and photographed this past year. All the fleeting moments I was invited to capture. Those beautiful children who had no idea what they were in for when I arrived. All the fun and unexpected times that was I able to document and helped to create lasting memories was just incredible to remember.

So if you have some time...
sit back and enjoy the 2007 YEAR IN REVIEW SLIDESHOW

3 Sisters Holiday Session

I had the opportunity to photograph 3 beautiful sisters in their home during the holiday season. The Christmas tree coupled with the scenic window where you could see some recent snow in their yard offered a nice holiday backdrop for the session. The older 2 girls were great fun and kept me on the go as my eyes chanced them with my cameras, while their sweet little sister took it all in. Here are some favorites...

Big Brother and family

Another wonderful in studio family session. The 2 year old boy was just so proud of his new little sister and did so well during his session. He lasted much longer than the typical two year old... which usually isn't any longer than 20 minutes. I was able to document sweet moments between the two siblings. The family was very at ease in front of my cameras as I captured beautiful portraits of their new addition to their family. Here are some favorites...

The annual Swift Holiday Card Shoot

What do you get when you put 4.5yr old, 2 yr old and 8 month old boys together... a stressful shoot of the Swift Boys. Oh boy... I think I needed some audio for this one. I get the opportunity to capture fun images of my clients' children but when it comes to my own 3 boys...I get the the crying, the tantrums, the screaming ( mostly from their mom) and of course when you get 3 boys together the fighting. I definitely captured something for our card but I need to showcase some fun out takes from the session so you can really appreciate what it took to get the shot. Next year we will hopefully get outdoors because the youngest one will be on the go by then. Thanks for looking and Hapy Holidays to all of you!

Wonderful Family Session

What a wonderful family session. We started in the studio and then headed to one of my favorite parks for a chilly, yet fun outdoor session. I first met this family over 2 years ago when their first child was only 6 months old. Now they have 2 children and they were just perfect for their session. One of my favorite images was towards the end of the outdoor session when mom had just given her son a lollipop and I was shooting dad lifting their daughter in the air for a silhouette ( one of my photography trade marks). It just made a perfect silhouette and a family the trees framing them and the son looking up at mom with his lollipop as dad lifts daughter in the air. Here is that image along with many more favorites.

Think Pink Session

Here is another special woman and her sweet son. They were a pleasure to photograph and even took me to their favorite place for some portraits. I was in awe of the strength and will she has. I feel very blessed to have met these strong women thorugh these Think Pink Photography sessions who have been through much with breast cancer and persevere day in and day out. Here are some favorites.
