I am so happy to finally have my new blog up and running. I am still working on the design elements, but I figured out how to upload pictures, and that is what really matters. (just look how BIG they are, I am in heaven!) Oh yeah I almost forgot... you can leave comments on my shiny new blog, so don't be shy. I would love to hear from you.
I feel one of the hardest things to do as an artist is to define your work. How do you put into words what you are trying to say with an image? This family session is turning out to be one of my all-time favorites because I feel it represents my style of photography. It's real, it's passionate, it's timeless, it's natural, it's art.
Bonita (yes, her name means beautiful in Spanish, and beautiful she is...) contacted me about a family session at Big Bone Park in Boone County. She grew up there and thought it would be special to have her children photographed there. I love any opportunity I get to visit the country side of Kentucky, so I was delighted to meet her there. We found a cool place where the kids could run around and we were off... When Bonita told me she wasn't sure what I wanted her to do I told her all I needed her to do was to be herself and enjoy a day at the park with her children. I would just follow them around taking pictures along the way, and that is what we did. Two hours and about 300 pictures later we were all worn out. I had a great time, her kids are so animated and fun. Thank you for the fun and thank you for the beautiful images Bonita, Ethan, Tamra, and Kylee. I can't wait to show you more! :)
I think this session really takes on a timeless feel in black and white, but here is one color image for the road...
