Our boys… my dreamy boys… allowed me the pleasure of capturing them among the forget-me-nots currently covering our garden. Yes, I had to persuade them, maybe even beg them, but all I needed was a FEW minutes… because when the sun is out at the moment, you have to act fast, because it’s doing a rather wonderful disappearing act lately.
I recently used the lensbaby on a maternity session and loved the results, (I’ll share it here soon…) so I wanted to play some more, as I love the dreamy effect.
This is the post I never finished before leaving for New York. This was meant to be a slide show of my favourite photos I’ve taken this year, but you know what, I made the slide show and I actually prefer the images to stand alone. I know I will be concentrating on moving images and putting photos together to tell a story more and more in this coming year, but 2011 was mostly about photos by themselves, so that’s what I will share here and I’ve updated my welcome video instead.
It’s been hard to select just a few from 2011… these photos mean so much to me as they tell the story I see and then like to tell…. the details, the memories, the connections, all with the colours and light that make me gasp as I press the shutter. Capturing these moments has be wonderful, thank you to all those that let me do what I love, I can’t wait to see what 2012 brings…
When I met Alex back in October she was waiting patiently for her first baby Isaac to arrive, during the session we talked babies and labour as Alex was having a home birth….. she was really calm about his imminent arrival.
Last week I got to meet (and have a cuddle with….) the delightful 3 week old Isaac, he was adorable and so relaxed….. mama and baby have a beautiful bond.
I wish them all the happiness together.
The adventures with the Lensbaby continues… I’m making new discoveries with a tip from Karen (thank you) and realising good light and a subject that’s prepared to sit still, makes the practice so much easier.
I took these as I was chatting to Lola about life and school, she was sitting so beautifully, as the light was streaming in. It was a real joy to capture.
I’m experiencing a huge learning curve with the Lensbaby. I can see so much opportunity and I’m excited for what I can eventually create with my photography. I’m just struggling at the moment, knowing I just need to practice, practice and then practice some more.
I may regret sharing my first few images here, as I’d like them to be better. Maybe/hopefully I will look back at these, as I start to master it, and realise how far I’ve come.
