It was a while since I shot black and white film. The last time was about two years ago, and although I was content with the way the images came out, I wasn’t impressed, and for whatever reason, I held out on shooting it again.

Until last week.

This time Im more than content, Im actually pretty happy, and I cant wait to insert another BW film in the camera.

Gia’s 6! | Birthday Portraits

A month ago, she turned 6.

In the last 6 years, she’s developed to become the sweetest, most passionate, moody, and funniest little person I know (little person, literally).

Oh, and she’s probably one of the most photogenic.

As it’s become a habit with all my children, I planned a birthday photo session with her. I immediately knew that I wanted to approach this particular session, in a way that would reflect who she is becoming- again, moody, passionate, dramatic, and photogenic, you know, kinda Anthropologie 🙂

Can I just say, I think we nailed it!

I Heart Faces: Best Face of 2012

i_heart_faces_photography_125
This week, I Heart Faces is hosting the Best Face of 2012 photo challenge, and although its been a while, Ive decided to join.
I live with three pretty little faces, and luckily, I did manage to photograph those faces a few times last year, so picking a ‘favorite’ was a little difficult. However, I chose this particular photograph of my little girl, Gia, because it captures her personality so perfectly- silly, charming, sweet faced, and coquettish. Its not only an adorable little face, its also one of my ‘best captures’ of 2012.

I Heart Faces: Dramatic B&W

 


This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is Black and White, as in black and white pictures, but it’s not just any black and white pictures- the entries must have a ‘dramatic’ feel to them.

This week I’m entering a picture of my 2 year old Gia. We were having so much fun taking pictures this particular day, but for this one shot, she just sat there, appearing a little off. Maybe she was tired, overworked, upset, not sure. I find that the picture says it all though.

To see other interesting entries, or to enter a picture yourself, go to I♥Faces!
