Thank you so much guys! I did get lucky with some cute and willing (usually...haha) models.

RE women and natural light...yes, I've noticed that as well. In fact, I used to be one of them until you guys here pushed me enough to where I taught myself OCF. I'm no expert at it but I can pull it off when I need to and it's been a lot of fun to add something new to my bag of tricks. I've also noticed the opposite in regard to male photographers...some of them (just speaking generally here) seem to think that

Not sure I believe that's you. Can't be possible to a) give birth to 9 babies and look that good, and b) raise 9 kids and look that good.

Nice to have you back, but please don't charge off anywhere again.

Lol. Great to hear that. I'm not done with trying to steal your processing techniques yet....

And Merry Christmas.

Very stunning! That last photograph was simply breathtaking. She is a lovely model. And, you did so well with the photography; perfect poses and setting up the scene.

Great pics, though I feel the lipstick is a little too dominant for my taste.

Wow, I'm so glad you're back, I lurked here to look at your pics. Your eldest daughter is beautiful, and growing up quickly (mine is the same age).

I love image 3. Love, love, love it. She looks like she just belongs in the woods.

Congrats on #10.

These are incredible Lisa.

I really like looking at your work. It's very beautiful, and I find it very inspirational.

Wow - lots of praise, nice to have a supportive community of friends. As the stranger here, I will walk cautiously.

I like the pictures as well, but the thing that stuck out for me in most shots was the watermark. Hate it. Right in the middle of most compositions, distracting the eye very strongly. Suggest rethinking your watermark style and placement (bottom left and right corners, much smaller comes to mind).

Other than that - great work!

Those are beautiful and so are many on your website. I do have a question about women and photography. I have a lot of friends who "like" many women photographers on Facebook and the one thing they all have in common is they use only natural light and many will not even use reflectors. Why are so many women afraid to use lighting? Maybe afraid isn't the right word. Just curious



Interesting, I wonder if it is more of a background thing than a male or female thing though. I was under the vague impression that people who were more landscape/natural world photographers and then dabbled in some portraits/models/weddings type work were a lot more into using mostly natural light or natural light plus a reflector, male or female, and those who started out trying studio/portrait stuff almost from the start were more into all sorts of fancy strobes/flash/this and that stuff going on.

Sometimes I get the impression that the natural light lovers are shocked that some people always try to sneak in flash for everything (why are they so afraid of going over ISO100 or trying to use natural light ) and the big flash shooters are stunned and horrified (shocked. SHOCKED!) to hear than any photo has ever been taking without using a flash .

But I don't really have all that much contact with people who focus mostly on models so I could have a slanted view.

I have to say that I am both male and more of using natural light for everything as much as possible but I can see some use for reflectors at times certainly and even a trace of fill flash here or there. I have to confess that I don't even own anything more than a ring flash (got it for macro) and a cheap little sunpak when it comes to flash. I'm not a wedding shooter though and have only barely dabbled into models, I'd probably have more of a flash if I was/did just for the times when you simply do come closer to truly needing it.

Thank you again for the comments and thoughts everyone.

RE the watermark issue...I put it in the center of the image because I have had my work stolen and used without my permission many, many times. I hope that by putting it in a more centralized area of the photo, it will be more of a deterrent. Probably not, but one can hope.

Lisa, these are gorgeous... but that's something I've come to expect from your photography.
Your daughter is stunning as well; congrats on adding another to the mix
