Working on Families
This last week has been so busy with the wedding photos and I am glad to say that I think I am done, well, done until the newly weds get back and we go through them. I am happy about that, I have heard that they like them so far. I put them up on my website with a code so only they can view them. They have had a quick look and I am relieved that they are happy with them. They were a great couple to photograph.
For today, and since I have some time, I thought I would show you some photos of the baby that I shot, not a good word to use, but you know what I mean.
One of the things I’ve been trying to work on is making the images softer and perhaps not as dark. I am not sure I am succeeding with that, but I like the softness of this one. Something only a mother knows about. There is such a connection and bond between a woman and her child when she is feeding that child. It is special, and I am so happy that Alison allowed me to photograph her while doing this.
I let this one be a little dark, because one of the things I remember about this shoot was how much we tried to get Sara to go to sleep. She wouldn’t, and this is the closest I got to that. I wanted the image dark, as it reflected what we were trying to do here.
A family portrait. Alison said Ben would be hard to photograph, he doesn’t sit still long enough. She is right, he is hard to photograph, but we managed this one. Not a typical portrait, but I do like the way they are all connected and involved in what is happening. It is a happy family unit. I did do this without all the textures and layers, but it seemed so boring, so plain, so I played and experimented. I like this. I hope they do too.
