Theme Thursday - Pure

This week's theme is "pure". For those of you who know me (Vill :-)), you know that I don't like altering pictures. At all. I've tried it a couple of times, but it doesn't seem real. The way I see it, is if I can take pictures that look like they are photoshopped, then my job is done. If I can't do that naturally, then I shouldn't cheat and make them good.

Anyway, here are some pictures of Caitlyn that I have taken at Kiddie Kandids throughout her not quite year of life. We have these poses called "Tender Moments" that are my most favorite ones to do. They represent the uniqueness of relationships and occasionally only show body parts, instead of faces. They are a great way to capture the true essence of a parent/child/sibling connection. Sometimes as well, they don't feature a group, but focus on one child. The uniqueness and purity of every kids' face is awesome to capture on "film" (computer) However, most parents don't want me to experiment with their kids, so I'm left to doing more "traditional" shots. These are Caitlyn's Tender Moments. My sister was impressed at Caitlyn's first sitting, in the fact that she saw a different side of me that she had never seen before. I was in control and knew what I was doing. She trusted me with her daughter. She saw how I truly love photography. And for that I am grateful.

Caitlyn ~ 3 weeks (the first one was her birth announcement photo)

Caitlyn ~ 3 months (fun with Mommy!)

Caitlyn ~ 6 months (big girl)

Caitlyn ~ 10 months (these are not Tender Moments, but had to post some recent ones!)

I'm so glad you found your passion. I'd like to take credit at this time for suggesting photography as your hobby. I didn't know it was going to become your passion.
