Sneak Peak

I plan to use this blog to give my clients a sneak peak at a portrait or two from their session before their gallery goes online.

Today's clients wanted classic black and white portraits of their family, and I don't think they will be disappointed. Here's a little sneak peak for the Pratts. Check back later for a couple more colorful portraits of the little ones.

And, one of each of the little ones:

Unplanned portrait

I have noticed that sometimes the most striking portraits are the ones that weren't posed. On Friday I was talking to a new mom while she was comforting her 5-week-old before our portrait session was to begin. We were casually talking when I noticed how beautiful and confident she looked as she held her baby and talked to me. So I picked up my camera and before she even noticed, took this shot. It's so natural, and the glow of her new role in life really shines through.

I had to show this one off, too -- I wonder what he's dreaming about?
