My Favourite Pictures
I love to look back on my work and remember sessions, families and friends made. I always have favourite shots but sometimes my initial favourite image changes later when I look again. I might have missed a little look or a small hair twirl, something different will jump out at me down the road. I find it so interesting to see what my clients choose as their favourites. It often is the same as mine but when it is not, it really makes me look at the image and see what drew them to it. Do they see a expression that they recognize and love or is it a new expression….Maybe they just see & feel a connection. One image that I love of my little girl is of her looking quite upset, see here, but sometimes she is just like that and I do not want to forget. I always include pictures in my clients’ galleries that are not camera aware, meaning that the subjects have forgotten about me and are just being themselves. I also love Mums in pictures. I find that too often we avoid being in pictures because we do not like how we look or feel self conscience, but our kids and loved ones do not see us that way and we owe it to them to exist in images. I know I love looking back through albums and seeing pictures of my mum and I. I don’t see her imperfections, I see the love that she had for my sister and me. That is so special and treasured and I bet some of your favourite pictures are ones just like that right? So find your favourite pictures and then make sure you exist in them! Here are a few of my favourites from families I have shot.
