Wacky Williams : Jurassic World part 1

 It's fun when even David and I want to be part of the images.... it sort of transports us into the world of fantasy, as much as it does for the kids.   With the release of the 'Fallen Kingdom' from the Jurassic movies, we thought about having some fun with it :)  I am loving the cinematic lighting, and coloring of these fantasy/action movies, and it really enhances my still images.  I'm loving anamorphic flares, and the cool blue coloring, as well as images like this one, with back light, and high contrast...  Enjoy!



Here's the Creation process!
1. Shoot our 'Chris Pratt' in the studio

2. Found a background online that looks the part.

3. Add dust, and foreground foliage ferns


4. Found these raptor png images online


5. Added the subject into the image



 6. After several coloring layers, dodging and burning, and some smoke/dust, it felt like a 'real' composite,  Believably unbelievable. :)

Wacky Williams : Photo Excursion

David and I were able to travel to Arizona over my Birthday this past April on strictly photo fun.  We took a lot of pictures, and I was able to use them for some fun composites :)  Here's one fun one, just  because.  :)

Dutch Life 2018 Overview

I had a blast photographing my kids for another Tulip Time Festival.   My kids had fun helping me with ideas and being great little actors.   As they grow, I have to keep looking for costumes!  I'm one of 4 girls, so my mom has every size I'll ever need for my Cadence, but the boys are tougher!  I had their boy costume as a dutch dancer, so it was fun to have them wear 'mommy's' province, but they keep growing! 

Enjoy my images from Tulip Time 2018.

Rainy Day activities.... I'm so proud of my kids for really being able to entertain themselves.... I rarely hear, 'I'm bored' around our place.... They are getting into some electronics, which I'm struggling to accept, but am glad they prefer outdoor activities over them yet. :) 


Our kiddos are very good about helping us with chicken chores.... they collect the eggs, and feed the scratch, so it made perfect sense to make an image about their helpful hands on our little farm.  I used Dutch Village's barn, because it's much prettier than ours :) 

My kids loved this little lamb.  We named him Felix, because we weren't aware he already had a name (Deacon) and were able to grab some photos of him while we babysat (lambsat) for him last spring. 




The Carousel at Dutch Village was a hit, because the swings were shut down due to high winds.... 



This was a fun idea.... let's have the best student, play the 'naughty' student, and the two naughty's play the 'good' student role.... :)

The Wacky Williams : Dutch Life 2018

Who got mints at church every Sunday?  WE DID!!!  And if we sat by Grandma and Grandpa, we got even more :)  The famous Wilhemina mints were our favorite, and we still buy them today for our kids at church or to cure a tummy ache.  Candy at church is usually heard rolling down the aisles, but always retrieved by a helpful attendee and handed back up the rows to my longing kids.

The Wacky Williams : Dutch Life 2018

We live on a small hobby farm on the south side of Holland so it made perfect sense to show some Dutch farm life.... even if the dutch would have never worn their nice attire out to do chores :)
