Riley-Northeastern NC Photographer

Miss Riley is three years old. She is the daughter of some very close friends that we don't see nearly enough. Her parents, Josh and Tiffany, live in Charlotte, NC. We all met up in Myrtle Beach, SC for a little bit of wintertime fun at a indoor water park resort.
I have just finished up taking a "Mastering Natural Light Indoors" photography class. Taking pictures indoors can be a tricky thing when there is not a lot of light to be found. This class taught us how to find the light, how to use it, and how shadows sometimes arn't a bad thing. Sometimes, You can use shadows and low light to help portray moodiness and character. I love this.
Our hotel room was on the 11th floor and east facing.. the light was amazing! There was even black out shades and sheer curtains..a photographer's dream!
Riley has the MOST amazing eyes and eyelashes. She has a tender soft spoken but yet is direct enough to let you know exactly what she wants (example: when my baby daughter was crying for any reason at all..Riley had to let you know that "baby is crying" and that baby shouldn't be crying.. man.. the looks she would shoot us until we did something to make the baby stop crying were killer). I'm pretty sure that she needs a sister or brother. Hint hint.....
Below are some of my favorite shots from our vacation together...They are "lifestyle" pictures.. Which just means that they are pictures of her in her environment..they arn't posed...and they are true to her. I basically just stalked her for a day :) Lifestyle pictures arn't for everybody...but they are true life...true details.
Sweet little Riley.. She sure is one beautiful kid.
