I often remark to my clients at our family sessions to invest in a little camera because children are SO happy when they're doing every day things with the ones they love. But the truth is, I've long let go off all the technicality of photography and really embraced each opportunity to photograph clients just as they are. It's what I pride myself on. Never mind if they're tired, fussy, shy or otherwise- in that moment this is your life. I am there to capture it. And I truly treasure being invited into the lives of so many! This session embodies just that- Malia is 9 months old, and time is fleeting but when you look at these images, you are right there in the moment. I've never done an entire feature in black and white only but it speaks so strongly to my soul and I know it's one of the only way to see time frozen entirely. Here are just a handful of favorites I know mom will treasure forever.
