Sweet Fiel was born in June. You met her lovely parents, Kate & Steven, when I posted Kate’s maternity photos. Fiel’s newborn session was one of the first in which I fully embraced my desire to photograph life as it is – to take a step back from the scene and capture true emotion in an environment that is familiar to my clients. I put on my 70-200mm and stood in the background, providing instruction only to place them in the best light possible for the room, and I am absolutely convinced that this is a technique and style that I will embrace from here on out! My photography philosophy has always been to capture “real” and “candid” moments, which I feel we have done, but I want to even more so still the rawness of life, to take a step back and click my shutter when the moment is right rather than trying to create moments.
Kate and Steven, thank you, thank you for being vulnerable and allowing me to step into a very intimate and beautiful time in your story.
