Winter Season

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself." ~Ruth Stout

It's All In The Details

DSC_3905blog


Photography isn't just about taking pictures of people and faces or catching that funny moment. While this is the most important part, and primarily what I achieve with each photo session, there are other ingredients to complete the experience. It is the details. The finer print. Objects. The little things that truly capture and cause you to feel like you were a part of what was happening. A birthday party. A wedding. A graduation. Catching the details on film to tell a story. Photojournalism. I love that part of photography. Because taking pictures is not only about faces but also about capturing the story behind those smiling faces.

Meet Nick & Sarah

A few months ago I received a call from a lady inquiring about me doing a photo session with her niece and nephew. First thought that came to my mind was "Aww how fun! Two little kids!". Then she told me she wanted this to be a Christmas present for her sister. And keep it a secret. How fun! When I asked the ages of her niece and nephew, images of cute little brother and sister moments soon left my brain. Their ages are 15 and 18. Big brother and sister. Hmmm. A different approach for this photo session sent all kinds of thoughts through my mind. I agreed happily and excitedly to do the photo session and we set up a date, time and location. Except I soon began to wonder how I would create pictures without it looking like some sort of engagement session.

I pondered how I would pose these two for days before our scheduled session. I searched this site for inspiration. Glanced through my Eddie Bauer catalogues. And soon I had ideas. I was anxious to meet these two who wanted this to be a surprise for their parents on Christmas day. Immediately I knew these two teenagers would be a blast to work with. It isn't very often you have a teenage brother and sister duo willingly agree to have photos done of them, especially together. And I wanted to make their photos as special as possible. For them. For their mom and dad. For their entire family.
Meet Nick and Sarah. They rocked their photoshoot! So much fun to work with. Happy, polite, and friendly kids. We hit it off right away. For over an hour we laughed, talked, posed and searched for good light and pretty spots to take pictures. I really loved this photo session!
As for their parents reaction to this Christmas present?

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say that we loved the photos of Nick and Sarah! What a nice surprise!! It certainly was the highlight of our Christmas."


I love my photographic life!

I Heart Faces ~ Best Face Photo of 2010



DSC_2021_edited-3

Truly one of my favorite photography websites to visit is I Heart Faces. Each week they have a photo challenge where any type of photographer can join in the fun and share one picture. Beginners, amateurs, and professionals can submit their photo that best fits the photo challenge for the week. Each Monday and Tuesday you can enter your photograph here and be a part of an amazing photography community.
My photo I am sharing this week is of one of the cutest girls I was able to photograph last fall. She was so much fun and her expressions were priceless. Me and my camera loved her!
While I had a hard time narrowing down one picture to share, because frankly I have so many favorites I love, this picture showcases my style and what I strive to achieve with my photo sessions. Real life moments. Favorite memories. Happiness abound.
Be sure to stop over to I Heart Faces and see what other photographers are sharing as their favorite face this week!
