{C} Family – Newborn Studio

What a beautiful little blessing! 

A few months back, I was able to capture this precious newborn in my studio! It was a lively session…we had Mom and Grandma here, and somehow, despite having the record for most diaper changes in one session, we were able to capture some gorgeous images! We needed to get a little creative with posing since this little one didn’t want to be squished (or wrapped) too much. I love how these turned out though — the detail in her eyelashes, skin, and lips are perfection. 

One of the best things about this session is that I was able to head back over yesterday to do an in-home documentary session with the whole family and SEE these beautiful captures in frames and on the wall! Documentary sessions like these make my whole heart so, so happy! I hope to have that session up sooner than this one got online, but I’ll be excited to share it when it’s up and processed. But trust me on this — if you love your photographer’s work, and want to pay them a compliment, you can do two things: one, get the images up on your walls, and two, refer to friends and family! Remember, photographers are creatives. We WANT to see our work to be seen, and that’s pretty difficult when images are stuck somewhere on a CD. This is another reason why I offer print packages! These images were printed and ready to be put in frames, and I’m thankful that my clients have been so, so great about getting them up. Such a huge reward to us seeing our work displayed in your homes! 

Okay…now, here’s Baby Adelyn, with more to come soon! 

  

Artists Inspired Blog Circle – Black

Black 

It’s mid-April, and to be honest, the idea of capturing “black” this month seemed ironic. Or, is it? 

We all think of the pretty pastels of Easter and the bright colored blooms of Spring during this time. But today, on Good Friday, I thought I’d also mention that out of the darkest day on Earth has come the most vibrant and beautiful, and purest forms of love. Now, not to be too emotional about this, but wow. Just to think of the contrast of that moment, from darkest, sunless, colorless moment on Earth has sprung life everlasting.

So, in choosing images this month, I chose to find images that had that stark contrast of black and dark vs. light and bright. In my style of photography, can be found fairly frequently, as the play of shadow and light is one of my favorite things to capture in an image, regardless of what it is I’m capturing. I also threw in a couple black and whites because they are from recent months, and, in my mind anyways, they highlight that emotion and moment of the image. 

Silhouettes are among my favorite, favorite, favorite things to capture, and thankfully my little apprentice captured this beautifully this past weekend, as I’ve always wanted a good one of my husband and myself!
