It feels like it's been a very long time since I wrote a blog. I feel like I've been so busy lately!
So I decided to write a little blog about the little competition I ran in July. Thank you so much to all the people who entered, shared and liked my post. It means a lot. My business is slowly growing because of word of mouth referrals made possible through Facebook.
Jess was the lucky winner I drew out at random. I think she was pretty excited to win! As Jess and her husband Zac had only recently welcomed their second child, brand new baby Florence earth-side, we did an in-home family session.
With in-home sessions, I only use available natural light, from windows or doors. I turn off all over head lights. In this instance, I picked 2 of the bedrooms to shoot in. One was very bright and light, which resulted in the lovely bright photos. While the other room was much darker with dark furnishings and much less direct light coming through the window. These photos are much darker and more moody. I love the stark contrast the light from these two rooms created across the images.
As a photographer, I am ALWAYS looking for light. I love using different types of light and the amazingly different results you can achieve. This family session is a perfect example of the dramatic effect of light. Taken in the same house, at the same time, with the same people wearing the same clothes - and this is the result!
