About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

Olivia

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Fun and full of life – that is Olivia.  One of my favorite things to do is school pictures.  Each year your child changes so much & the mile marker that shows that is the yearly images taken.  Looking back on the old images and then to the new is such a bittersweet moment.  Here are some special ones I took of Olivia.  Thanks hun – we need to do this again!

Something to remember is that getting pictures at school is not your only option.  Doing a mini session in your child’s own environment will be ever so dear to you as you look back on the memories.

There is nothing like your best friend either.  Taking the opportunity to have a session where I come to you in your setting also gives you the opportunity to bring out your own childs personality and showcase the things or people that mean the world to them.

Thank you again Olivia for letting me capture this year for you and your family!

Challenging Myself

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

I think that I was blessed with 5 children to help challenge me to be better in every way!  This is true in my photography too.  I was so grateful for my girls and my youngest yesterday when they allowed me to go all paprazzi on them!   A little about my challenge – there is a great group that put out the more natural look challenge.  I went full force and when the kids were in back they were giggly.  My challenge to myself was to find the more serene moments and capture them.  I will let you be the judge of whether or not that was accomplished.  Oh – and a disclaimer for my youngest.  He will be fully dressed, but if we are home he looses all but his undies.  I don’t get it!  But there you go – my little almost streaker is featured as well.

I tell you it was all giggles heee heee heee!

Then of coarse Sir Personality had to join the mix:

Of coarse Miss Mimi makes it easy for me with her cats being near by:

And Miss Thanya reading Anne of Green Gables – so sweet!

But the one set that blows me away and gives me happy chills; the one that I am having framed in a Modern Knot Frame and put on my walls is this!

It is awesome offering my services to other families ~ but when I get to taking pictures of my own then I say “This is why I do it and what makes me LOVE my job ever so much!”

In the near future I will post images of my other two boys.  Thanks for looking.
