Elle has been busy doing photography lately.

After she did Claire’s baptism pictures back here, a few friends have asked for her services.

And I know I’m a little bit biased, but I sure think she does a great job.

She takes these all by herself, edits them beautifully and burns them on a CD for the families.  
…a great way to earn a little extra summer cash and develop a skill at the same time.
I couldn’t resist snapping a couple of her while we were looking for good lighting at a new place she was shooting.
 Love this girl.

Gotta get the mom in there too…

And she practices a little on her sisters.

…who don’t seem to mind too much 🙂

  11. Hi there. Loving her work! My son has recently started his own "business" with portrait work. We are having a hard time figuring out how to show people the pics without uploading all of them to a website. Also, how does Elle charge? Fixed rates, donation, etc. Does she spend time editing as well?

    Thank you very much!
