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!
Halloween is such a magical time for kids–which makes it a magical time for parents too! I love these even though they are pretty much snapshots. I did do some quick edits on them to give them the vibrancy I felt like Halloween pictures should have, but not much. I love that these images will always remind me of this Halloween–they will bring back the details of how my son was going to be The Beast to go along with my daughter’s Belle, but we couldn’t find The Beast anywhere. My Mom came up with the garbage man idea, and my son was SOLD when I told him he could use a huge garbage bag to collect candy in :). I’m pretty sure he had visions in his head of that bag being completely full by the end of the night! It was the first year my daughter really “got it”, and she ran from house to house with gusto! I was sure she was going to trip and fall over that dress about 50 times, but never really did. Pictures are memories, and that is why I love them so much! Happy Friday everyone, and I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!
