As a long time dancer, I’d get my artistic “fill” through dance and choreography. Photography is a “new” artistic outlet for me. New, in the sense that I’ve been dancing since I was 5. This is my 17th year teaching, so yes, photography is “new” to me. I got asked recently if I get bored with newborns. “Aren’t they all the same?” Never. Each one has a personality of their own. Each one I plan ahead to try something new. A different angle, a new macro shot, a new blanket, something new. It keeps me challenged artistically. I still deliver consistently for my clients. They’ve seen my work, they know that they are getting great quality and fabulous customer service, but I like there to be something to satisfy me as well.
This is baby J. I photographed her family back in November. I not only get the best looking clients but they are all so nice as well. J’s mom has impeccable taste. In fact, I loved the wall color in her master bedroom so much, I painted my dining room and living room that color (it’s the perfect shade of aqua/blue/green. Such a hard shade to get right.) Baby J was a dream for me. She had a broken collarbone, and you’d never know it. She was a great model.
