I’ve discovered from being both a mom and a photographer that all that I want is a simple, good image of my children. It doesn’t have to be crazy creative, just a simple photo done right. I’ve been a professionally photographer since 2006 and in those years I’ve tried a lot of different things only to discover that simplicity was what was needed all along. I want to watch my children change through the years and portray that in the images by seeing the children as they are. Every year I could repeat the exact location, exact lighting and exact pose with my children without being tired of it because they are all the change that I need to see. I keep my children’s images chronologically in albums and I love watching the tiny changes in the pages. They are 7 and 4 now and one day when they have families and lives of their own I will cherish these images even more than I do now. Thank you, God, for pictures to remember these fleeting moments.
Here is just a tiny peek for you to enjoy…
