My name is Vonnie and I am the lucky shutter bug that has been fortunate enough to work with Leslie over the past year. I have always loved the art behind creative photography and the idea that a single moment can be frozen in time. However, most people do not think of photography in this way and often opt for the traditional studio type portraits to document their family’s growth.
Traditional studio portraits can produce beautiful well-crafted photos but they can often lack the simple nuances that make your family uniquely wonderful. So, what is a busy gal to do you ask? Well the answer is simple-pick your camera and start clicking away! Step out of the box and away from the idea the pictures are suppose to be perfect. Start thinking about the simple moments that make of your family’s day and document them. Don’t be afraid to zoom in tight, not get everyone’s head in the frame, or to just take a picture of your child’s wacky socks. What you will find is that your pictures are filled with:
...LIFE AS AN ART
Just try it! You won’t be disappointed and you may even get a good laugh or two.
So, in the spirit of, “The Jar’s” 12 days of Christmas and my passion for documenting families through the art of photography-I am giving away a free mini-session for the spring! As you have most likely guessed my photo style is non-traditional, which is not for everyone and that is okay! But make sure you visit my site, you never know you might be surprised by what you like.
