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!
Beach babies just steal my heart! Okay, we were smack dab in the middle of The Woodlands, TX without an ocean in site when this image was taken, but the feeling is still there. This image just screams Summer to me, and it is definitely Summer right now, so it felt like the perfect image for Friday Favorites this week. It was also Summertime when this image was taken–poor Dad was sweating bullets by the end of the session, but it was so worth it and I’m so proud of him for sticking it out! I love how everything came together and just worked in this image. I love that it looks like a sandy beach, and those shades are just adorable on these two! I actually also love how the little girl is looking away off camera, giving a little mysterious aloofness to the image especially with the vintage edit (which I so rarely do!). I’ve photographed these two several times–they are just the sweetest little kids with the nicest parents to boot! It’s another one of those images that I just never get tired of looking at…I hope you enjoy it too!
