Sometimes my favorite image of a session is one that I almost overlooked. This was the last image I edited in this session, and it’s turning out to be my favorite. Her eyes sparkle here. She’s comfortable, natural, and real. The angle is playful, and I love the black and white conversion.
I always try to get a balance of lifestyle or “real moments” during a photo session and some great, more straightforward portraits of the children.
It’s a good reminder to always go back and look again. There might just be something I overlooked.
I’m looking forward to meeting a sweet newborn this weekend and catching up with a big 9 month old again. I’ve documented his life every 3 months since birth, and it’s been a really neat project. In the mean time, I’ve been spending too much time on Pinterest. (Follow me there if you want–Emily Large– and I’ll follow you. But I warn you, it’s highly addictive!)
