We had a great time taking portraits of Nathan with the studio lights and also on location around Jordan High School. Nathan had several different outfits and we tried several different lighting techniques. The weather was quite cold and windy when were walking around Jordan High School so unfortunately we did not last very long. (Plus Nathan needed to get to ready for a dance that night, so we ran out of time!)

A Trio of Family Portraits

corey burk | March 3rd, 2013 - 7:56 pm

We had a fun and busy weekend taking portraits of three of my sibling’s families. You have seen two of my sister’s families in previous posts, the Chapmans and the Barbers. We did three portrait sessions in two days in the garage (due to weather and new born babies) with the CR Burk family, the JS Burk family and the CS Clark family.

Portraits of the Burks

My brother Curtis’s family came over first to get their portraits taken in the garage studio.

They have their hands full with three kids. The first two were both walking and VERY early and have been exhausting to keep up with ever since. We will see what the third one has in store. You can find more pictures of the CR Burk Family over here and on the EyeMotion Photography FaceBook Page.

 

Portraits of the Clarks

The next family in the studio was the CS Clark Family. I always enjoy taking pictures of my sister’s adorable little girls and now they have a new little brother.

The three girls were really getting their poses on, popping those hips and looking sassy. I decided to give these photos an aged look after seeing that in their home they have all large set of pictures in this style. They should fit right in. You can find more pictures of the CS Clark Family over here and also on the EyeMotion Photography FaceBook Page.

 

Portraits of the Burks

The final family of the weekend photo shoot was the JS Burk Family and their three rowdy boys.

You are always in for a wild, fun ride with these three crazy boys. Bodily function jokes never get old with this trio of trouble! You can find more pictures of the JS Burk Family over here and don’t forget about the EyeMotion Photography FaceBook Page.

I had a blast photographing these three families. I need to convince them to come back more often!

 

Portraits of Jackson

corey burk | February 16th, 2013 - 9:54 pm

I had the privilege of taking some fun portraits of this sharply dressed young man this past week. His mom wanted some updated pictures to commemorate his upcoming baptism. Her artistic direction was the classic juxtaposition of sharply dressed young man set within the evidences urban decay.

I scouted out several spots the day before and was happy to find some great places that were not too far from home. All of these portraits were taken around the old downtown area of Midvale. We found boarded up buildings, graffiti, painted over graffiti, sketchy alley ways, and old walls with peeling paint.

I was glad that the train cars were still there, as when I had asked the property owner the day before if I could take pictures there, he said that they would most likely be taken away that evening.

Jackson was a trooper as we walked around in the cold looking for great places to take some pictures. Luckily he had his dapper three-piece suit to keep him warm.  He was a great subject and maybe even an aspiring model.

Thanks Jackson, I hope you (and your parents) enjoy the portraits.

Portraits of the Hansens

corey burk | February 8th, 2013 - 3:34 pm

The Hansen grand child portraits were apparently getting a bit out of date on Grandma’s wall.

Grandma needed some new pictures so she gave me a call to schedule a photo shoot with her grand kids.

She was looking for some simple portraits so I setup the lights and the white seamless background and took some individual high-key shots.

It was fun getting to know the kids (a little bit) and see their very different personalities while they tried to not think about (or show) how cold it actually was in my little garage “studio”.

There may or may not have a been a tease or two about boyfriends, girlfriends, and/or crushes but I neither can confirm nor deny those rumors.

It is always fun to get a reaction out them.

I upgraded my lighting setup since we had fun with my little speed lights with the Barber family.

High-key studio portraits by EyeMotion Photography 7

I was quite pleased with the consistency of the light. Barbers, you should come back!

It is always fun to work with repeat customers, Thanks Hansens!

Family Portraits of the Barbers

corey burk | January 11th, 2013 - 11:51 am

On a very cold wintery day, the Barbers braved the frigid temperatures for a little family bonding time (aka family portraits).

They chose my garage as the venue, white seamless backdrop behind, lights and camera in front.

The mood started off just as chilly as the weather, Jake in particular was not pleased with this adventure.

But we perservered. We worked on some individual shots while a little more father-son bonding was going on in the other room.

The kids did great for their individuals but I have to give a C- grade to my lights as they progressively got worse. Battery, flash and trigger issues were not making it fun for me as I struggled to get the shots.  This problem will be rectified soon!

Handsome bunch eh?

I have no idea what this little inside joke was but it was fun to watch. Alex was a good sport and acted like he knew the joke too, but Amanda was firm on her opposition.

Thanks Barbers for enduring the cold and hanging out in my garage for some fun portraits.

Family Portraits of the Chapmans

corey burk | November 30th, 2012 - 11:21 am

While Matt, Cami, Lily and Emma were in town for Thanksgiving they requested some family portraits.

How could I say no!

Family Portraits of the Chapmans at Wheeler Farm

We met at Wheeler Farm and enjoyed wandering around the wooded areas looking for fun backdrops for their family.

Family Portraits of the Chapmans at Wheeler Farm

Wheeler Farm has lots of wooded areas with paths that offer lots of variety for portrait backdrops.

Even though all the leaves have fallen off of the trees and grasses have turned brown, there are still lots of interesting variety to photograph.

Not having bright colors in the background makes the subjects of the portraits, the cute Chapman family, stand out even more.

Aren’t Lily and Emma are just adorable!

They loved playing the small play house and were not happy when we shuffled them on to the next photo spot.

We had a fun time taking some fun family portraits at Wheeler Farm.

Thanks Chapmans, lets do it again next time you are in town…or maybe we should come to you next!

Here are the rest of the photos.

Family Portraits – The Burks

corey burk | October 15th, 2012 - 1:25 pm

We updated our family portraits this weekend. Benjamin did a great job showing off for the camera at his first outdoor photo session.

Family Portraits in Murray Park, Salt Lake City, UT - Benjamin

We went to Murray Park and found a few trees showing off their great autumn colors. The weather was perfect and the clouds were creating some great soft light.

Family Portraits in Murray Park, Salt Lake City, UT - Noah, Maya, and Ben

Benjamin was in a better mood than Noah. Bribes were not even working very well as Noah was demanding which photos he needed to be in. Some how we were able to get several decent shots.

Thanks to Kassie who was on hand to push the shutter button after I setup the shots on the tripod. That was much easier then running back and forth after a 5 shot, timer delayed burst.

The rest of the pictures can be found here.

 

 

 

Lightning over Palisades Lake

Last summer we hung out with relatives at Palisades Lake, UT.

A fun lightning storm gave us a pretty good show for quite a while.

 

Maya’s Urban Portraits

eyemotionphoto | January 19th, 2012 - 9:19 am

While taking pictures of her mom and her mom’s fiance, I took some fun shots of my daughter Maya. She was really hamming it up and getting sassy in her poses. It actually made all of us a bit nervous for the future! I need to figure out how to keep her from growing up so fast. Love ya Kiddo!
