Mishelle Lamarand Photography
As a busy wedding and senior photographer, I don’t take enough time for personal shooting, so I was pretty pleased to get both of my little ones together and pull off an idea that had been living inside my head for a few weeks. My plan was to get some images of Nash before he started to crawl (way from me and my camera). So I came up with this idea to have them both under the sheets and see what shots I could get. I water patiently for a bright, Michigan sunny day … and when the light was just right, I dressed them in light clothing, and of course everyone loves a half-naked baby, right? I threw open the shades in our master bedroom, put on some fun music and shot away. As I mentioned, my plan was to get shots of Nash. Little did I know that it would be my 5 year old, Jillian that would steal the show. These are some of my favorite images to date that I’ve taken of her, and I will treasure them always.
A few technical things about these shots: I kept my ISO mid-range so that I could get nice creamy light without blowing out too much of the sheets or their skin. These were shot with my 35mm 1.4L and 1Dx. I love the way they turned out and have since printed 6 large ones to hang right next to our master bed for my husband and I to enjoy each morning when we was up. I hope you enjoy them too!
My name is Mishelle Lamarand and I own Mishelle Lamarand Photography. I’m located in Taylor, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. I’ve been shooting professionally for almost 6 years, and I specialize in natural light photography for weddings, seniors and commercial work. I’m a busy mom of two adorable children, and the wife of a politician. I walked away from a high-paying corporate job almost 3 years ago to chase my dream of being a photographer, and I’ve been full-time ever since. And I’ve never looked back.
