Yearly Archives: 2006

The last session of the year! I love being able to catch children just being themselves. Those shots often end up being everyone’s favorite. These little darlings just lit up the room. Thank you to all of my first clients from 2006! I sincerely look forward to being a part of your photographs in the coming year and beyond. Thank you so much! ~Melissa

    December has been busy! I am determined to keep this blog updated. I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family last night. I was lucky to catch some great father/daughter moments at the end of the session. Wow. Glad I didn’t put my camera away.

      The camera loves her 

      I really believe that some images are meant to be B&W, some sepia, some vibrant in color and some subdued. It really depends on what makes the image “speak to you”.

      I have recently been asked if I mean to “chop off the heads” of children in their photographs. The answer is, “yes”. This brings the focus to their eyes, which are far more interesting than the top of a head. I have never really seen a top of a head that is very interesting. So, that’s what it is about, part of contemporary photography. I understand that some have a preference and I try to do a nice mix.

      I also like to use some “negative space”. This might me a solid background or some interesting objects behind the subject. The eye “looks” for symmetry first and when it finds it, it gets boring. So below, notice how Hailey is not perfectly centered. I am also purposely doing this, as the composition is a large part of what “makes” a portrait. It’s much more than a good camera, prop or a cute outfit. 🙂

        kansas city four month photos

        I loved the session so much. Not just because I have known her mama forever. This little doll has the biggest eyes I have ever seen and they just catch the light like glass. She sat perfectly still and studied the camera. I have never seen a 7-month-old do that!
