Sometimes the goal of photography is to capture the essence of a subject or way light falls upon something.
The other day I took some photographs of my friend and her little boy. This was the first time I had worked with a child model. His energy was boundless and full of joy. With children, who move so quickly, whose expressions change in the blink of an eye, the goal here is simply to capture the moment, to stop time for a fraction of a second.
Not only did the camera capture these fleeting moments in, it also seized upon the love and tenderness between this mother and child. All children should feel this safe and this loved. It was an honor to be able to document this family as they prepare to welcome a new life into their fold.
Until next time...
