Lifescapes… a mix of portraits and landscapes. Nice, huh? And a Child Portrait to post…

2 versions of a sweet portrait I took this weekend at a clients house. I used my new portable black background… came out a bit grey in the flash but still a nice thing to add to my photo arsenal! I LOVE the look on this 3 year olds face. She was very smiley most of the photo shoot but this was one of the first pictures and I think she didn’t quite know what to make of it. The look in her eyes is priceless. She had pulled up one knee and was sitting on a white chair, and I like how those shapes repeat themselves in the image (although I may try to black out the chair behind her, just for a different look). Overall, I think it’s a little extreme but I love the glowing skin and the deep, serious look. More to come from this shoot and from the landscapes promised.

Lifescapes. Do you like the idea? I am equally drawn towards portraits of families and individuals (Lifestyle photography- maternity, infant, child, family, events) and landscapes, so I thought I would work those two into a sort of “mission statement” on what I’m trying to accomplish.

Let me know which you like better? I think both are beautiful, but I’m often not the best to nitpick photos I’ve taken. Although I’m trying to become better at choosing!
