I am head over heels in love with this hat!
It has been sitting on my dresser for weeks just waiting to be packed for our upcoming trip to Cape Cod.
I couldn't stand it any longer and grabbed it last night as we walked out the door for a photoshoot.
I figured we would give it a test run before we hit the beach:)
The shoot was actually for Reagan, she has a very special day coming up this week. Sarah was not planning to come along with us and then just as we were ready to walk out the door, she decided she wanted to come join in the fun.
We headed to a location that we have not visited in years.
These red doors were the backdrop to our Christmas card back in 2008 and I thought they would work perfectly for what I was planning to do with Reagan. This is just a preview of what is yet to come, you will have to wait until Thursday to see the rest.
When I saw this hat online, I purchased it with Reagan in mind, but I have to say, last nights test run is making me think differently.
As soon as Sarah put it on her head, she turned on the Sass(She must take after Aunt Marla).
I think it looks absolutely adorable on her..... my girl wears it well!!
Camera: Canon 5d Markiii
Lens: 50mm f1.2
The settings for the top photo were:
I am normally not a cropper, but that first photo seemed to have too much dead space and I made it more square for a little more visual interest. If you have been paying attention to my camera settings each week, you notice I like to shoot very wide open most of the time. By selectively focusing on your subjects eyes, you can still maintain a sharp focus on the subject while getting that dreamy blurred out background that so many love!
I tried some new things processing this series and don't have time to share right now, but I promise I will in the coming weeks!
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
We have a busy day that will end with a celebration for my sister's birthday over at my parent's house. The girls are super excited to see their cousins and we are all looking forward to a night of good food and fun with our family.
