Mindfully documenting... {Authentic child and family photography in Cobourg/Northumberland County}

November 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

For many years, I've used the tag line "Documenting the Beauty of Your Life". I felt it was beautiful in it's simplicity yet completely revealing of my style and approach. After some considerate reflection, I've decided to add two words that I think provide even more descriptive value. First, I MINDFULLY approach each and every photo session beginning with very conscious and deliberate visualization of the photo shoot. This preparation helps me to feel calm and ready yet still open to the wonderful, spontaneous moments that invariably happen during every session. During actual sessions, I am mindful of what I'm seeing and feeling at the present moment. The second word I've added is EVERYDAY. To me, a successful portrait is not about the perfectly still child sitting in a chair looking straight at the camera with a perfect smile and perfectly neat clothing. Instead, I'm looking for a child who is comfortable enough to express a range of emotions: joy, reflection, contentedness, confidence, curiosity, delight, to name a few. As a parent, this is what you see everyday (amongst others that maybe aren't as desirable to document) and that is what you want to remember 10, 20, 30 years from now. I hope you have a bit more insight into my approach: "Mindfully Documenting the Everyday Beauty of Your Life." Thanks for listening. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this blog post.
