The thoughts on my head. I truly dislike to be in a session and have my clients looking at my camera in every single photo. It just doesn’t resonate with me. It screams “photo session” when actually I want it to be a candid, documentary register of the kids in that specific age, of that woman in that moment in her life, of that couple’s love in that stage of their relationship. I perused the internet for ideas and inspiration.
I decided to start with newborns, because they are a theme all by themselves. Newborn babies have their own independent agenda and will do as they please. A documentary photographer’s dream!
