Wacky Williams : Late Night Gamers

Late night gamers.  These kids love their iPods from last Christmas.  Some are more addicted than others, but all in all, these have saved me a few times when I have a meeting or photoshoot before daddy can watch them.  Once or twice, we let them play them in bed, and I'm surprised how late they can stay up playing!  Looks like I've got a small problem on my hands.... I'm a mom that hates the gaming world, and have 3 kids growing up in it!

Wacky Williams : Self Portrait in the Galaxy

A warm night in August had me excited to photograph the stars!  It was clear, comfortable and quiet in the country.  Instead of walking back into the fields, I noticed my shadow, and thought it would be a cool self-portrait opportunity.... so.... I had to stand very still for 30 seconds for the long exposure..... in my pjs, in my driveway, at midnight.  LOL.  Great memories. :)  And I love seeing how the milky way shows up on the long exposure!  Enjoy!

Here's my settings, in case you ever want to try this with a DSLR camera.  
-Get your widest lens, pre-focus it to 'infinity' and lock the focus.
-Set your ISO to around 1000.... (play with it a little if you don't like the results.)
-Set your shutter to 30 seconds.
-Set your F-stops to the lowest they go.  Mine went to 2.8. 
-Have the camera on a tripod and press the shutter and wait for 30 seconds.  Don't bump it, or cross the lens during the 30 seconds.  
If your image is too bright, put your ISO down lower.  If your image is too dark, move your ISO up higher.  

Shutter 30 sec. f2.8/ISO1000/16mm fisheye

Wacky Williams : Flight

Thank you papa for the plane :)  This is my dad's Piper 4 seater plane.  I wanted to try something with my trio flying over our own house :)  SOOOOO, with the help of my drone for the background, and papa's plane (in the hanger, yes, on the ground) my kiddos think they were pilots :)  LOL!

Wacky Williams : Fireflies


Country living has some huge perks!  From June-August, we can see a sparkle of fireflies in masses around the soybean fields.  It's like Christmas dazzle!  So pretty.  I guess it's part of their mating season, but it's so amazing to see SOOOOO many in close areas!  Our kids captured (and probably suffocated) their share of fireflies... they aren't hard to catch... most of the time, we just swing our hand and then they are in your hand.  This is just a fun image to remember the summer as fall starts up.

Wacky Williams : Fisheye Sunset

We had an amazing sunset, (well, there are loads of them out here in the wide open country) and I grabbed a fisheye lens.... kinda by accident, but once out there, I just rolled with it.  This is 9 images, compiled of a 360 degree view of the sunset.  At the top, you can see our white farm house upside down and the sunset at the bottom.    The fisheye can be a fun lens :)

Wacky Williams : Cade Smash!!!

Cadence asked to be made into the Hulk.  I wasn't too thrilled about making her green and angry, but thought it could make for a cool concept.... After a few tries in the studio, we finally got the images I wanted to use.  Thanks to my Josh Rossi training, I was able to get some cool background images... this one was from one of his trips to Italy.  I'd have loved to go there and find my own backgrounds, but for now.... I'll just use what I can :)

James : Class of 2018

James got me out on the golf course for a few shots.  It was AWESOME.  His dad kindly got us a golf cart and took us around Macatawa legends.  Of course the best spots tend to be farthest apart from each other, so I was quite thankful for the golf cart... plus, it made a cool prop! LOL.  James looks a whole lot like his brother, who I photographed 2 years ago.  It was great catching up with his family as they followed us around.  We had a perfect evening for photos!  James could have been a model,.... if he liked being photographed....lol!  Typical of most guys...  haha.

Jake : Class of 2018

I've known Jake and his family for a few years now, and I just love watching these guys all growing into who God has made them to be.  Jake has such a good heart, and is looking at going to school to teach high school.... That's crazy cool.... I wanted out of school at his age, and wouldn't have considered anything dealing with school again... lol!  But this kid is loving the Spanish language, and wants to possibly teach it.  That's cool.  He's also an amazing athlete!  He's had a few set backs, but still has a passion for sports and will drive that goal home through the tough times.   Enjoy a few teasers of Jake!

Levi : Class of 2018

Levi and his brother Jake came for their senior photos together.  Being the 'twin' role his whole life,  I tried to make their images reveal a bit more of their individualism.  Levi is on the Holland Christian Football and Basketball team, and wanted some of his athletics revealed in his images.  So, a quick run to the football field gave us some great images of his sporty side.   Enjoy a few teasers of Levi's senior photos!

Ellie : Miracle


This sweet little girl is the first baby for one of my longest Farrier clients!  So naturally, little Ellie needed some cowgirl images!  :)  I'm sure over the next few years, I'll be seeing Ellie in the barn with her horse and mini donkey!  Enjoy a few teasers of Ellie!

Wacky Williams : Artist Clean Up

 These kiddos drive me nuts!  I'm guessing I'm not alone, but they make messes wherever they go!  I can follow them from room to room just cleaning up the path they leave behind!  We are going to have to work on that.... Here's one of their favorite messes to leave.... pencil shavings... I think they shave them just for fun.... ahhhhhhh!
