The Details...

I am going to get long-winded again...:)
I often hear some of my photographer friends, of which I am in forums with, mention how I see so much of the details in my sessions. When I posted this picture of the little girl in the daisies in my betterphoto gallery one of them mentioned it again...so I wanted to share a little bit about the details with you. I am a very detailed person, for me many times it's these details that pull on my heartstrings the most. So when I am in a session I can't help but notice the details of children, the way they reach for things, or the way their bare feet look at this precious age they are at, or the simplicity of the way their eyelashes fall on their cheek as they look down at something, or the tiny curls in their hair, or the way a young child reaches for his daddy's hand . These are all things that just pass too quickly as they grow and if I can capture it for you through my lens then you have that moment of their childhood forever. My thoughts are, these are the things I never want to forget about my own children, so I want to preserve these memories for you as well. I think often times these are the things that are forgotten too quickly. So yes, I very much notice the details in my sessions. And if you were to walk through my home, you would find many many pictures in my house of detailed shots :)

So I wanted to share a couple of my detailed shots from my recent 2 sessions with you. I am way behind on posting sessions due to sickness in our home...but here are a couple from 2 different sessions...

The first pic....
Who hasn't done this with daisies as a little girl :) One of my recent sessions was in a beautiful flower garden and the daisies are starting to bloom here so to break the ice with this little one I picked a daisy and showed her the "he loves me, he loves me not" thing. She is almost 1 and picked up on it immediately and was even trying to say it as she picked them. It was the cutest thing to watch!! Here is one of my very faves of her picking the daisies blossoms...


And this little guy I had the complete pleasure to photograph for the second time in the past few days. He has grown SO much as is SO SO adorable...I could squeeze him!! I'll be posting more of his cute little face soon, I promise. But this shot...oh it melts my heart. The way he reached for his Daddy's hand and those curls in his hair...


Don't let the precious details go un-captured!!

Until next time...
