Jillian loves pretend-play. We created this surreal picture portaging Jillian holds an imaginary tea party with girls from different eras. From the Medieval Ages, Victorian Era, Roaring Twenties, to the Swinging 50s and Hippie 70s. All the characters are played by Jillian herself.
Lavender has a relatively short bloom in the summer and capturing it is my top priority. I love the smell, the way the honey bees are busy doing their jobs while we walk through these gorgeous fields. There is something so incredibly magical about it all.
The image is so refined. It's one of my favorites from summer 2022! Seeing this small row of yellow flowers from a previous session! I know exactly what I will do at the next photo session and the color of the dress was chosen intentionally. So it works well for me to visualize the result in your head.
From the womb to the arms
A silent shot like a sotto voce narration where the light rests gracefully on the subjects.
The details emphasize and describe the intensity of this process such as the hands that rest, contain and embrace: we see what the parents feel without seeing their gaze.
Mama's little helper:)
It was a perfect day to get those rubber boots on and get a little dirty. You can see the excitement on the boy's face when he saw that water drip down the sunflower leaves. It was a win-win situation for everybody: the boy, the photographer, and the flower:)
