Senior Portraits: Stuart Lane Terry, Class of 2011

This summer, I have been entirely too quiet. It’s just been so incredibly hot, that taking pictures outside is the last thing my subjects (and me, if we’re being honest) want to do.

BUT it’s back to school, which means back to work. I was super excited when my youngest brother Stuart asked me to take his senior portraits. Stuart is one of the funniest people I know and he has grown up so much in the past few years. I’m definitely a proud big sister, and I hope I made him look good (it’s not hard, I can’t believe how much he looks like our dad).

overnight, this blog has become my absolute favorite photography blog. why? because this talented lady is a wife and a mom of two beautiful daughters. the latest addition to her family is Nella, who was born with Down syndrome. if you know me, then you know my oldest brother ian, has Down syndrome. every time i’ve met someone who has a member of their family with DS, there’s this instant connection. an understanding.
her photography is beautiful, especially so because of the stories she tells through them. they’re real. plus, they made me cry at work which counts as an automatic reblog in my book.
i hope you enjoy her blog as much as i do.

around campus summer project

as i mentioned before, i’ve been assigned to take some new images around campus to add to the Faculty Resource Center’s Image Library.

if you’ve visited the University of Alabama, then you know that the majority of buildings on campus are historic and really great to photograph. but, since my job is to shoot the same buildings over and over again, it’s my responsibility to figure out new and interesting ways to show off our campus.

so here’s a few images i shot this week:

so i am officially back to work! which means back to shooting full time.

my first assignment back was a list of almost every building on campus. my job is to photograph them all. every single one. not all in one day, but eventually. also, it’s quite hot outside and i’m not allowed to wear shorts in the office because it’s against the dress code.

i’ve also decided that i need to “revamp” kayla cille photography. i’m going to set aside some time to really think about where i want to go with my little side projects and how i need to market myself. it’s time to get serious.

Summer School

This is my last full week of Summer School! I’m posting this update under my photo blog because I’ve been taking a black and white film class. It’s been a really great experience learning the basics of shooting, developing and printing my stuff. I will say, I’m still loyal to digital. I love working an hour or so on 100s of images on the computer rather than 5 hours on two or three.

I’m going to figure out some way to scan them and show off my favorites. Until then I guess!

photography workshop with meg mckinney

friday, i was able to attend a workshop headed by former Southern Living photographer, Meg McKinney.

for my project for the seminar, i decided to make an attempt at an editorial style photo essay on my brother, Ian. i wanted to show a day in the life of Ian, along with some fun stuff thrown in. i really enjoyed the extra time spent with both of my brothers over the weekend, and i hope you enjoy the photos. my work will be critiqued next saturday.

anyway, enjoy!
