Sometimes all you'll get is a test shot...

I'm setting up a single light. I haven't taken a light reading yet, and just fire off a shot to see what it looks like. Well here's what it looks like. And after this test shot, that's the only shot Emmy would let me get with her and her sister together -- but it all worked out in the end.

I have been photographing Ashley and her little sister Emmy since they both had their first birthday parties (Ashley is nearly seven years old). 

It's one thing to see your own kids grow up. You watch them change and mature, but it seems gradual because you're always around them. But it's quite another to see someone else's. Always amazing how big someone has gotten since the last time you saw them.

Emmy wouldn't put down the lollipop, but with a face like this, it doesn't matter. It works anyway.

My First Photo Blog

Zug, Austria
Welcome to my first photo blog. Hoping you sign up and check in monthly to hear more about my photography work.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I am thankful for my wife and two girls, and after nearly 20 years of taking pictures for a living I'm thankful that I still love what I do.

I'm especially thankful for all of my clients--from my corporate accounts to the weekend runner.

If you're not already a fan on Facebook, visit the following link to "like" Jack McCoy Photography.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
