Creepy Crawly

The shrieks that were heard throughout our neighborhood last night while we tried to catch this banana spider drew at least one neighbor out to his doorstep to check on us.  We caught him...or shall I say, my daughter caught him...once he was secured in the jar, we rattled off a few photos.  I was trying to use my new off-camera flash...but nabbed this shot when I turned it off and we used a flashlight instead.

*no spiders were harmed in the production of this photo.

Lifestyle

I recently did a "Lifestyle" shoot for one of my neighbors.  I don't think I am up to the task of charging for my work just yet, so this was another freebie.  She seemed so pleased with the outcome! I took over 200 photos of her three children and her sister's two.  We started with a bit of playdoh fun in the kitchen, then moved outside and attempted a more formal, posed photo, then went and jumped on the trampoline.  I had my 11 year old daughter with me as my assistant.  It went so smoothly!
