Recorded Historical Moment for ME!!!

Okay I TRY to keep my PHOTOGRAPHY blog separate from this blog.

Kinda like TWO separate worlds or something.

But, I also want to let you know what the WHAT I'm doing now and again.

Record history I could say.

Well something Historical happened...

I did my FIRST studio photo shoot!!! It was literally 4 hours of complete bliss. I was like a kid in the candy story!
The guy holding the girl...the instructor...he's amazing. Just letting you in on that!

This kid could do practically anything on his hands...he might be 11...maybe...





Okay, these boys...they are freakin' adorable. And YES that is DCar on the right hand side.


If you couldn't tell by the photos it was for a HIP-HOP studio here in my town...and I actually take HIP HOP class from this studio. Most of the time I am just a GEEKY white girl trying to get my GROOVE on...

but these lovely subjects let me yell in their faces..."Oh, can you do that ONE more time...didn't quite CLICK when I should have"

When Really...I just wanted to see them do it again and again...these kids were amazing, as well as, photogenic!

So there you have it.

Now go over and join Candid Carrie for Friday Foto Finish Fiesta

Then stop by my TWINS site for her Retreat! Super Deep Thoughts and UBER craziness going on over that...so get the HELK over there!

Love,

Shelle

I love it. I can't photograph action shots to save my life but I keep trying. For the time being I will just bow down to you :)

Jen said...

Those are totally cool. And your little guy is such a kool kat. And when do we get a video of your moves? Sooner, later? (And don't you dare say never!)

Kritta22 said...

Oh my stinking goodness!! So fun!!

i would stand and watch the hip hop group in high school and just stare. They are amazing. They didn't like it when white girls stopped and stared so I could only do it so often but WOW! I'd love to see you and DCar in action!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

OMGOSH! I am totally freakin' freaking out at how GAD TaMn goooood you are. What the what? What the helk?

(I hope Lo doesn't hear me talking like this).

NO REALLY! I'm so impressed. I'm so blown away. You are going to be uber duber rich.

How did you learn to do that? I must pick your brain someday.

Hey, will you take my family photos this summer when we come? Will you make me look beautiful?

And can we go out to Olive Garden together? Can we can we can we?

YOu are amazing.

And thanks for plugging my retreat!

Kyle Peterson said...

Seriously, those are great! So much better than my sweaty armpit from too much Guitar Hero that I took myself.

lmerie said...

That sounds like fun! Fun pictures!

McEwens said...

These are AWESOME!! YOu have awmazing talent!

clan of the cave hair said...

Shelley, my sister is a professional photographer with a style all her own, and so I tend to be pretty critical of photos in general. But I just have to tell you, your photos are always just beautiful. I really love your work.

Darcie said...

Yay! Congrats on the big step in your photography career! The photos, by the way, are awesome. Love the girl caught in a toe-touch mid-air. I wouldn't look nearly as nonchalant doing that. My face would be all contorted and generally jacked up.

Jessica said...

Nice job!!!!! Yay, that is so exciting and fun!!!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

TUTU-Action shots are MUCH easier when you have a FLASH or BROAD daylight...but with Flash you HAVE to try and get the action shot right when it is at its peak! LOL...no bowing, I got very LUCKY! And I made them do it over and over again! :)

Jen-If i ever perform with the Hip-Hop class...I promise I will post the video...but I DON'T promise to tell you where I'm at! lol!

I'm just saying.

That DCar, he looks like he got some moves.

Waiting for Todd to be done so I can go home and sleep. This convention thing is running me ragged.

John Deere Mom said...

Those are amazing pics!! I have to admit ,though, the toilet pics in the ad at the bottom of the post threw me for a minute!! :)
You are awesome! Glad you shared them here!

Shannon said...

I love your photography. You are wicked talented, my friend!

JustRandi said...

Those are amazing!! In my next life I want to be a photographer.

LIFE CHANGES said...

I love the pictures they turned out so great!!! Nice Job sis!

Tiff said...

Way to go, those shots are fantastic!!!
the ad at the bottom of your post is for toilets, kind of fitting considering your previous posts, don't you think? LOL

Dopp Family said...

Awesome photos Shelle!! I better get my family photos taken soon before you are in such demand you can't fit us in your schedule... haha... just teasing! I know you'd always make time for your dear old friend Maria. But honestly, great action shots!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Heidi-I'm not even close to professional...I just like to pretend I am! lol!

Heinous-so glad you came by...I LOVE you writing and you are completely down to earth AND funny...you fit right in! Glad nobody got hurt at that Hip-Hop class..hehehe

Wixom-You have become one of my BEST blog friends because you were first to enter my Don't You Hate It When contest...so I'll do your pics whenever!

Binks--you know me TO well! Of course you HAVE met me. But you are right...everyone should be complimenting me OVER at the other site...but the don't...Of course...I just LOVE you because you are so freakin' FUN! I'm sorry about another convention...but I hope I can make it out to Chicago later this month! :)

John Deere Mom and TIff-I KNOW what is up with that TOILET picture? Must have to do with the posts below this one! WHat the What?

Randi--Just do it! lol! As NIKE and Shelle would say! :)

Kiss-THanks girl...I love you so MUCHESS!!!

Maria-ARe you joking me girl? I can ALWAYS fit you in...I love you like my OWN flesh and blood sister! You know that! :)

Mariko said...

I LOVE THOSE PICTURES! Are you sure you weren't using the ultra-cute flash? Or wires?
Oh, I totally agree about the active thing. People always say, "Oh, exercise will give you more energy." How about more like, "Exercise will suck your will to live?" I'd jump on that person's advice team.
