Well, what could be more perfect than holding Miss Rhiannon Rose’s 6 month session in the Schenectady Rose Garden? Just getting to see her again, maybe. Every single session, she is just such a delight to spend a few hours with–such a happy, lovely, delightful little girl in every single way.
I tend to automatically think about baby sessions in black and white, especially studio sessions. I light my baby portraits in such a way so that they will show off all those wonderful plump, round baby curves and tiny details when converted to a black and white image. I choose blankets and backdrops, props and locations based on a final black and white image. Knowing that my clients will want color images to really capture their sweet babies’ coloring, as well as timeless, simple black and white images, I also shoot and show color images. Sometimes I have to remind myself to include those color images because I just love the lighting and shadowing in the black and white conversions. For this session, however, I couldn’t bring myself to show any of these blog images in black and white because the summer color in the garden was just so, so beautiful.
Rhiannon Rose, 6 months:
Such a beautiful, lovely family!
I just can’t believe how fast she is growing up!
Gosh, I just love that funny face and the sweet shape of her mouth in this one.
I think the hardest part of this session has been deciding what to show. I could have shown 5 times this many and still left out favorites, but there just isn’t the time or bandwidth. Plus, mama needs some surprises to look forward to:). Rhiannon, a delight, as always. Can’t wait to see you again and get some more snuggles in a few months!
