Jay Valley

My children typically sigh at the sight of my camera. They each know that I'm ready to take their picture. Actually, I don't just take their picture. We have a mini session. Today my son, Jay, didn't respond that way. Hmmm. Somebody's looking for a profile picture. 

We stood in the garage while it rained and took a few. I used to hate cloudy days when it came to photography--well, for anything actually. But I've learned how to use the soft light that it gives. The light in these images is from the soft sky and a reflector that I'm holding just below the camera.
