I Heart Faces Challenge – Hugs and Kisses | Leilani Rogers, Austin, TX Family Photographer

The I Heart Faces Challenge this week is “Hugs and Kisses”… so I am pulling a shot from my session last weekend (and last blog post) to enter.


I Heart Faces

I love this photo so much! I think it's pretty obvious I am a big fan of sun flare and back lighting. I rarely shoot any time of day other than at sunset, just so I can get some great flare and backlit photos. It's just such yummy lighting. That coupled with the sweet moment this young couple stole for the camera, makes it a perfect fit for this theme.

    Hey! I know that sweet couple! Beautiful image, Leilani! I love shooting at sunset too, though I am still mastering the backlit/sun flare look. Great work!

    The long shadows and tiptoes of the mom seal this one for me. The feeling is very warm.
