I had been scared for a while about sharing some of my more dramatic, dark images here for fear it would scare clients away. But I want clients to hire me not just for the pictures I take, but also for who I am. I am someone who loves beautiful, soft light. I am also someone who loves dark images with small amounts of light for high impact. I could never choose just one over the other. So I’m ignoring my fear and sharing images I made, and love.
The way the light comes in our front door in the evening can be stunning. Lucy was just hanging around the door, watching and waiting for her big sister to come home and watching her in that light took my breath away. Literally. I’ve always tried to take great care when shooting my kids and I always ask for their permission, unless they’re sleeping or something. If they ask me to stop, I do. It’s created a healthy relationship since Lucy often comes up to me and will ask me to take her photo. That makes me so happy. She was happy to let me take these this day.
