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

Families

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

People ask me what type of sessions I like to shoot.  Well, I don’t think I have a favorite per say. I love a mix of it all.  Individuals to groups. Girls, Guys, Infants, Maternity, High School Seniors, Couples, Brides. The fun part of doing a family session is the combination of personalities and ages. Getting everyone focused on a task or just to look in the correct direction. Having a challenge before me helps to keep my interest in what I am doing. Being able to defeat the challenge and bring amazing shots to the table is really what I enjoy! Because face it – What grouping or pose has not been done before?  It is not about that to me. Not at all. To me – it is the togetherness and learning to enjoy the moment.

How can you not love a family moment creating finger Hearts?!

Being an only boy cannot always be easy – but this boy is definitely a fun, intelligent, young man! He is the notch that completes this little group. I have to say – I was so impressed with the respect and mannerisms of all N’s children. This little guy was no exception. So fun to work with even after they traveled over 4 hours to spend some time with me, my camera, and my children.

Had it not been for the blonde hair, he would have not been discernible from my own bunch of boys. Sand in hand and all!

It still amazes me after seeing so many families that you can have such a variety of personalities! Those all brought together in one grouping, loving and caring for each other to make the perfect little unions. It is beautiful!

I have watched many families who have had to make it work with a single parent. My hat goes off to all you single parents. This gal amazes me! She works so so hard day in and day out for her family. Meeting them all it is easy to see that those children are so blessed to have such an amazing woman to call MOM.

I can honestly say that I aspire to be the type of person this woman is! Such a great time and experience for us all. I would love to have more sessions like this because I walk away feeling happy to just have spent a moment of time with them. Watching them play, interact, and just love being family.

Thanks N’s Family – Looking forward to the next session with you all!

 

 

Rebekah = Happy with a spark of pizazz!

Again, loving the school pictures this year.  Rebekah was a perfect little model.  She got to the spot and started striking a pose and giving it her best grins without any encouragement needed from me.  It was AWESOME.  If only every child were so easy.  It is so fun as a photographer to see such a bright fun loving individual who knows their own mind :)  I am looking forward to doing another session with her for sure!!!  After all – look at her SMILE: SO CUTE!

Just looking at these it brings me back to the session.  She would shift this way and strike her pose, then ever so slightly shift and strike her pose – then of coarse another subtle but well thought out rearranging and she was ready again!  I loved it!  Mom was smiling as big as can be too because this was Rebekah having her own moment and it was priceless!

Rebekah, next time we will spend much longer with a full session rather than a mini session, K hun!?  Thanks for being so awesome!
