Monthly Blog Challenge #9 – Cedar Rapids, Marion, Eastern Iowa Portrait Photography

It’s month nine of our blog series.  I have joined up with a team of online photography friends and we will all be posting one or a series of photos once a month with a different color theme.

September’s theme is black and white – either black and/or white as the main focus of the photo OR black and white photos.  

I love to process my photos in black and white so I knew this was going to be easy for me.

First up is a young man who is a friend of our family. I have been trying to get him to pose for me for over three years. He finally gave in! I thought this serious look needed some black and white processing.

Don’t worry … he smiles too. See below.

Next up is this little guy who just turned two. I’ve photographed him several times over the past year and I just love my repeat clients. Isn’t he just the cutest?

And then last – a photo of our very white cat. She doesn’t like to pose for photos – but she DOES like treats. So she was willing to pose for a few if I was willing to give up a few treats! Her name  is Yang. She has a sister who is all black named Yin and it would’ve been cool to get a photo of both of them together for black and white month – but that is next-to-impossible with two cats who each have very shall-we-say “independent” personalities? She’ll probably be featured next month when the colors are black and orange. I wonder if I can get her to jump out of a pumpkin for me. Hmmmm……..

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. I’d love it if you would leave a comment or two on these photos. And if you haven’t already signed up to receive email updates every time I update — you’re missing out — so sign up!

And I’d also appreciate it if you would continue clicking on the links of the photographers in the circle, starting with Renee Kellogg. Feel free to leave comments on their pages also – we all love the feedback. Check Renee’s blog for a link to the next photographer. Keep clicking and you will eventually end up back here!

Stop by October 26th for our next blog challenge post featuring black and orange!
