Father / Son Time at the San Antonio Zoo

When life is busy, sometimes I neglect the little things.  In this case, the little one being my son Collin. This past Tuesday, I didn't have any appointments so we decided to have a father/son day and go to the San Antonio Zoo.  

This was Collin's second visit to the zoo.  He has a book of zoo animals, and it's one of his favorite books, so he was really excited to go visit the animals again.  He just turned three, so it was also a good excuse for me to take my backup camera and take some pictures of him.

San Antonio Mission San Jose Bridal Portraits

Photographers call it "chimping".  It's when a photographer looks at the picture he just took on the LCD display on the back of the camera.  I try not to do it much.  I've seen some photographers do it after every shot.  I admit I chimped this shot.  I knew my light looked good, and the pose looked great.  I wanted to see if I nailed it.  I was so excited when I saw it, I showed it to the bride.  I like to think that she had the same feeling I did.  In the window light, she looked absolutely stunning. It's been almost a week that I've been looking at it, and I think it's my best bridal portrait ever.
