Today’s tidbit: “Today, just take time to smell the roses, enjoy those little things about your life, your family, spouse, friends, job. Forget about the thorns—the pains and problems they cause you—and enjoy life” ― Bernard Kelvin Clive
As you may have noticed by my blog posts, lately I have been photographing a lot of people. Whether it’s maternity, couples or babies I have really been enjoying capturing those genuine moments. The more shoots I do the more I’m finding out that while it normally starts out with an idea for a pose it turns into me snapping away capturing the candid shots, allowing the natural beauty and true expressions to come out. Those are my favorite photographs! I seem to always notice the little details, no matter where I am. I try to capture these details and moments in every photo shoot I do, whether it’s for a client or on my own.
With the gorgeous weather we were having in July, wandering around with a camera was the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Although I know I will be back, it was a nice way to close the chapter on living and working in Old Town, Alexandria. I will be breaking up my Old Town session into 3 posts, with this first post focusing on nature, texture and black + white.
