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 just love this image of this baby boy’s precious little lips, and that tiny little sucking blister that means so much more than one might realize at first glance. I photographed this little guys recently at almost 4 weeks old. He had problems with his digestive system when he was born, so he had to stay in the hospital for quite some time and even underwent surgery when he was only about 2 weeks old. He wasn’t able to eat properly for quite some time, so this little sucking blister tells a beautiful story of how he is now flourishing–eating away to his heart’s content :). All kinds of things make an image beautiful, but it’s the story behind them that makes them priceless. Happy Friday everyone!!
