Oh my, I have so much to say about this family!
But, first, I want you to meet the Lego Master — Davis — a very sweet five year old who stole my heart. And, ever since we met, I’ve been trying to figure out how I can start an arranged marriage between him and my 5 year old … and I think when you see his sweet faces and curls (oh, and his lashes) that you’ll understand why! The best part about Davis is that I wasn’t even in the door and he was telling me about his legos and trains and that he was, indeed, the lego master.
Anyway, for those of you who photograph newborns, you know that things don’t *always* go as planned. Or, really, maybe it’s better to say that they rarely go as planned. Maybe you like to pose your babies but they won’t sleep … or, in my case, this little 9 day old baby decided to, hmmmm… well, there’s just no delicate way to put this, but he christened his mama’s beautiful *white* comforter after six shots. And he was sleeping soooo well until that happened. I think he could hear me bragging about how cute he was and how sweet he looked while sleeping. 🙂 I skipped taking a picture of that particular outtake …
I have many more photographs to share, but I wanted to pick my favorites of Davis the protective big brother before I turn into a pumpkin! I’ve been away for the past few days on a girls trip and need to hit the hay before my week starts tomorrow!
Oh, and all of these images are in black and white because the family is a lover of black and white images. I’d say 95% of the images in their home are black and white … and if you know me, you know they are also my favorite. There’s a famous quote and I think it’s fitting for this post:
“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls! ~Ted Grant”
