I recently finished up a four week class, Fine Art and Visual Expression. This was the first run for FAVE taught by Elle Walker, at Clickin Moms. I had many questions about my own photography journey as the class began. What is fine art? Does it have to be still life? Is it possible to merge life style and fine art? Can it include children? MY children? I think art is something that can and will always be questioned as a form of taste and style. We explored many different genres of fine art, and I pushed myself and tried new things. The result? I do believe that life style images can be considered fine art. Especially when perspective, lighting and composition of the image all come together to create quite simply: ART.
I first met miss G last year at her first birthday party. It was wonderful to hear from her mommy that they will be expecting a new baby this summer and asked if I would capture this time in their lives as a family of 3. We were so lucky to have such beautiful weather in SF, in January! Best wishes to you, and I look forward to meeting the newest member soon.
I’m doing my best to blog and catch up from the Holidays, but I’ve got to be honest. I’m easily 2.5 months behind! I love going back through family sessions, creating a story board, remembering the day. The only drawback is, it is SO hard to choose which images to share! Especially when you are as beautiful of a family as the T family. This is the first family with teenagers that I’ve had the pleasure to photograph. I couldn’t use all my silly clown faces, funny noises – peek a boo around the camera with these kids. They all brought their “A” game and rocked this session. Just a lovely family, each of them inside and out.
