I recently welcomed a brand new addition to the Danielle Lynn Photography family – a 100mm 2.8 L Series Macro lens! One of the big reasons for this new major addition was because I have found that I’m not shooting much for myself lately and that needs to change. As much as I adore every single second of my work with clients, photography is also a hobby of mine. With this fabulous lens I’m able to explore another dimension of photography that I haven’t been. And since I don’t add to my lens collection often, this is very exciting for me! I love to be inspired and I’m looking forward to seeing where it takes me!
In my attempt to squeeze the last little bit of Fall left out of this year, I decided to take a little break from editing and went to the Ornamental Gardens, taking full advantage of the few flowers that remained. For whatever reason the bees seemed to really love these orange flowers. There weren’t many, but despite my paralyzing fear of bees I decided to follow one particular little bee around to see how close I could get. Anything for the love of my art, right? 😉 I actually have lots more images that I took on this day, but will post them through out the winter. 🙂
These two gorgeous sisters were SO much fun. Right from the time we met I knew they’d be easy going – and of course…that makes my job SO easy. 🙂 Courtney and Lindsey were actually scheduled to be part of my Graffiti Wall Mini Sessions that I had held earlier in the spring. Unfortunately, our schedules could never connect until this past weekend when they contacted me about finally having the opportunity to come to Ottawa. So I was happy to finally meet them. They drove 2 hours to come and see me! Oh…and where is the graffiti wall in these photos you ask? It was being re-pained. So they were more than happy to enjoy themselves an ‘Ornamental Gardens Mini Session’ instead since we were practically in the neighborhood anyway. 😉
Speaking of Mini sessions I am toying with the idea of offering them again in the Fall if there’s enough interest. Possibly at the Graffiti wall since there was so much interest last time, but more likely at the Arboretum in time for Fall. If you think you may be interested in a mini session with photos in time for the holidays, please let me know by contacting me, or leaving me a little note on my Facebook fan page so that I can determine whether I’ll have enough people interested to go forward with it. 🙂
Thank you so much for the opportunity to hang out with both of you Lindsay and Courtney!! Enjoy your images!!
