This week, we thought we would put a twist on our Behind the Lens series.  Typically we feature photographers from all over the world, but because I was a bit behind in getting my two latest interviews ready (Halloween, birthdays, philanthropy fairs, etc. got in the way), I instead thought I'd show you a few photo collages from some recent shoots that we've worked on.

Next week, we will be featuring the amazing work of Jennifer Dell Photography!  So be sure to come back for our regular series!  If you are interested in being featured, please email us a momswhoclick@yahoo.com.

Anyway, as you may know, my blogging partner and I are both photographers.  And like many of you, we have been busy over the past few weeks doing various holiday photo shoots.  Below are some photo collages of the wonderful families we had the privilege to photograph......

How cute is this family?  The kids each brought their favorite toy to be included in their photos.  
So sweet!

Here is another lovely family.  We actually shot both families at the same local park.  It is such a great place to get a variety of photos.

And here are some of my favorite sisters.  How cute are these girls?  We shot these photos at a friend's house during that wonderful golden hour.  

And in case you are interested, here are the "technical" details regarding these shoots:
Equipment Used:   Canon 7D and the 24-70mm lens (love that lens--it is a regular workhorse!). 
ISO:   Between 300-400 due to the shade.
f/stop:  5.6 for the family shots,  4.0 when I had two subjects and 2.8 when it was just one subject.  
Extra tidbits:  I did use a Canon Speedlite 580 EXII flash for some of the family photos to fill in the light.  For the families, I was shooting between 4-5:30 pm. and it was pretty shady.  
Storyboard templates:   The first two collages an be found on the amazing Isabelle LaFrance's website under her freebies section.  Thank you Isabelle for these great blog templates!  The storyboard used for the sisters was another great freebie that came from Clickin Moms and was designed by Beth Ross.  You can find it on the Clickin Moms website.
