I’ve taken so many images, and have so many different favorites for so many various reasons. Social media, internet, and web-based portfolios are all great; but this online world we live in sometimes leads things to be a bit less personal. I believe that every image has a story to tell, and that’s what I love doing for my clients so much! I don’t always get a chance to tell the story behind every image though–what I love about it, what makes it special to me. So, I thought I would start a weekly blog post that featured one of my favorite images…deconstructed. The story behind it, the reasons I love it (whether they are technical reasons of lighting/composition/etc., or emotional ones about what and why the image makes me feel). So check back every week–some of these shares will be personal ones, and others will come from clients’ sessions past and present…one of your images might be featured here!
You’ve gotta love kids being kids :). I absolutely love this image of two sisters having a tea party. I love the light behind them, and the slight reflection coming off of the table. I love their boas–these girls were so much fun to work with. They have spunk, they have personality, and such sweet hearts. This is another image that just makes me smile every single time I look at it. It never looses that effect on me. I love that the older sister was getting a little mischievous (as I know from personal experience that children of this age tend to be!), and decided to throw her teacup behind her. I love that I caught her hands still in mid-air, and I love that grin on her face–mischievous, but so sweet still. And I love the look on her little sister’s face, caught by surprise by the whole thing and a little uncertain what to make of it. It’s just a priceless moment. We may have set up the tea party for them and hoped to get some great shots of them playing, but this is another image that just can’t be “staged”. It was unexpected, which is what really makes it magical :).
