Photography, defined by it’s Greek roots, is the art of drawing with light. I remember in high school, seeing the world, and then in frustration trying to make it last. Watercolor, drawing, painting…all hopeless. The camera opened up a world to me.
I love the simplicity of this session. For me, the focus is on emotion and relationship, with no distractions. Someday, in the blink of an eye, when your sweet baby turns 16, it is not his outfit, any certain prop, or the studio that matters. Do the images bring back the way his baby skin smelled? How his soft chubby hands felt? How you felt when he laughed? That you can truly remember is my every hope when I take a photograph. It’s the reason I take my humble job so seriously. :)
