Baby Deaghlan

Baby Deaghlan

Yesterday I photographed Baby Deaghlan. Shannon’s little guy is sure a happy man. Being 6 weeks old, he defiantly did not want to sleep for us, but he didn’t mind having his picture taken a couple of times. Most of the images where take with natural light and a large white reflector. The images where shot with a Nikon D800, 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 Lens.

Check out some of the sample shots from the shoot!

Baby Taven

Baby Taven

Today I had the delight to Photograph Baby Taven. She is just 3 weeks old and looked pretty comfy during our shoot. It was not only great to catch up with Ashley, but it was wonderful to be able to photograph Taven for her.  When you set up to Photograph babies, you never really know how things are going to go down. In the end it really all depends on their mood. So after Taven got her fair share of food from Mom, she was a able to quickly feel asleep and I was able to start shooting. She was defiantly a Little Super Model!

Here are some samples from the Baby Portrait session.

Lets Flip on it

Lets Flip On It!

The Woman of Playa Muerto and Pina’s make these incredible Panamanian baskets.  They are hand made authentic baskets, plates and other things carved out of Mahogany and Cocobolo Wood. The woman drive a pretty hard bargain when it comes to the buying of their merchandise, but sometimes they are willing to Flip on it!!

Here is just a small selection of the new baskets that have been added to “Jefe’s” (the boss) Collection. Most likely the largest Panamanian Basket Collection in the United States!!!

Fishing Continues

Fishing Continues….

Here are more shots from our 3 months of Fishing in Pina’s Bay, Panama. Some of these images where taken aboard the Picaflor, under the direction of Captain Adolfo. The first Marlin gave us a dazzling display. Jumping straight at us. The boat was powering forward and Justin, the angler, was reeling as fast as he could in order to take up line. When I get a chance later in the week, I will post the video that goes along with this fight. It was pretty amazing to see this fish jump like this. Nice release on the fish after as well.

A group of girls managed to snag some of the stickers from me. I gave up trying to give them out individually. The kids where better at picking them off then I was.
