I’ve probably said it before, but one of my very favorite things to photograph is pregnancy. I think it’s because family is so important to me, and so to see that family created is incredibly special. A small peek into a maternity portrait session here in St. Louis:
Blog Carousel time again! The theme for July is LAUGHTER.
I love it when family portraits tell a story. My family portrait sessions vary as much as the families I’m photographing, and sometimes people want those posed group portraits. But I will always try to capture the in-between moments as well, because they have the potential to tell a great story. Or…a funny one, like this image does. I’ll leave it up to you to decide what was going on:
Just one this time. But take a look at this month’s blog carousel…once again, I guarantee you’ll enjoy the imagery. Next on the carousel is a photographer who built her business on telling a story with her amazing photographs: San Francisco’s Family and Kids photographer Storybox Art . Enjoy!
I recently had the opportunity to photograph a multi-talented local singer/songwriter in her Washington Avenue loft, and was simply stunned by her beauty. I think you’ll agree. In fact, she does modeling as well. I was privileged to hear her play some guitar for me during the shoot, and she’s really fantastic. But remember, I said multi-talented. She also plays piano, drums, and the flute. She sings blues, R&B, jazz, rock, and hip hop. Here she is…the amazing Chapale:

If you’ve been following the blog carousel, we have another round of wonderful images to share with you. If you haven’t, here’s how it works: several talented photographers from around the country (and a few from other countries) have been participating in monthly photoblog assignments, with a new theme each month. There has been some extraordinary work shared. This month, the theme is “framed” and I had to dig something out my archives for this one. The computer I edit with is in the shop, and learning to edit on a Mac is slow for this old PC. I will eventually get the hang of it, but not soon enough for this round. So take a peek, and then jump to the next blog on the carousel by clicking here… Atlanta Child and Teen Photographer Corey Sewell.
I get lots of questions about my black and white images, so that’s my focus for this month’s blog carousel, themed “monochrome.” Black and white images appeal to your senses on a different level than color images. Many times, all that’s needed to tell a story is light and shadow, and that story can have much more impact without the distractions of color. I use it often in portraiture, but also in nature photographs. Here’s one that was monochrome in real life, not requiring any conversion to b&w. Snowy days are great for forcing us to see in monochrome; to see the shapes of the world around us:
I chose to do this one in monochrome because the deep greens behind the dogwood were impressive too, after the natural monochrome scenes of winter. The green would have distracted from the blossoms, and the way they hang in the air like lace.
Just like last month, several photographers from around the country have posted on the ‘monochrome’ theme today as part of our blog carousel. If you love photography, take a spin on the carousel and see some beautiful work. Next up is Corey Sewell, Atlanta newborn, baby, and child photographer.
