Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to shoot some photos of my soon to be sister and brother-in-law. They are newly pregnant, expecting their first baby! To remember such an exciting time in their lives, they decided to have some photos taken; enter Becca.

They decided to shoot in Ault Park, which is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect place to have photos taken. I can certainly understand why so many weddings are held there. The day itself proved to be a wee bit sunny for my liking and so we tried to stay in the shade as to avoid blowouts. If you are new to the world of Photoshop and photography, let me tell you something I learned the hard way. It is much better to shoot when it is a bit shady than when the sun is beating down directly onto your subject because you can always lighten a photo if it is too dark. If you take a photograph that is too light/white (in other words, blown out), you can't darken it without it looking bad. That information is already lost and there is no rebuilding it.

All in all, some good shots were gotten. I think these are the best.
