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!
I love photographing newborns, love this family (so sweet!!), and I love that starting this business has forced me to bust out of my shell and make real connections with other artists working for themselves. This image represents a collaboration of sorts. The beautiful “brood pouch” is made by Jwrobel Brood Baby–a truly wonderful business about so much more than just clothing or accessories that you should definitely check out and tell Jess I sent you :)! The headband is by someone who has become a friend of mine talking shop over coffee…Karen at Baby Cake Bowtique. Working with other small business owners is really inspiring to me–seeing how they are making it work for them, what they are doing that makes a difference, and how I can be a part of that too. Collaboration is a wonderful thing, and I’m so grateful to still be meeting more and more people that make this journey a little easier and a lot more rewarding!
I do love photographing newborns!! If you or someone you know is expecting, I would love to be the one to capture your beautiful little angel at such a special time. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to book a session!
