I love baby expressions, and this little girl had some killer looks… really if looks could kill, I might just be on life support right now! She did warm up and give me some great smiles. I personally love non smiling photos because they do tell more of a story, and usually make me crack up as I edit. I had such a great time photographing this family, and it was so refreshing to be outdoors again for a shoot.
I am starting to get back into a little bit of a groove. My plan is to photograph Mondays during the day, Wednesday evenings, and one Saturday a month. Sounds pretty doable, to me (not overwhelming) but my months are going to book really quickly so do call soon if you need a session. I had someone tell me that I should take a break from photography, just give it up for awhile… my response? No way! photography is my break, my creative outlet, and what makes me tick! I need it to remain sane in this world of motherhood, it is my little escape, as well as how I document my own memories with my babies. It is what gives me energy… I can’t explain it, but I need art in my life, gorgeous light and my camera are my medium, and sharing this joy with others is really important to me and is what I am passionate about. This is a season with my children that isn’t going to last, so I am going to soak it up and capture my own memories with them and stick to my commitment to my work schedule. I need both of them… I guess in so many words I am saying I want to have my cake and eat it too… I do plan on doing both! I am going to try an online service for orders and order fulfillment so I can do more of what I love, shooting, editing, and of course cuddling, swinging at the park, and reading more Winnie the Poo. Thank you, my wonderful clients, for your patience as I am figuring out how to handle my new (wonderful) addition. August, Charlotte, and Pierson are the reason I do what I do.
