This has been a dream of mine. Something I thought would always be a day dream. I was so excited when this e-mail came through. I was able to photograph TWIN boys. These boys were seriously gems. I’m not even exaggerating. One would be fed while the other was conked out getting their picture taken. Then they’d switch. Then they’d cuddle. Then one would get hungry again while the other snoozed. Ridiculously easy! (Though, I do think that parents of twins should get double the maternity leave because it’s not REALLY easy…I mean, come on TWO babies, twice the work, double the lack of sleep).
Anyway, I’ve really been contemplating my business lately and thinking about “the why” that I do photography, and this post is actually just for me and an example of the why I LOVE taking pictures. I still have one or two more posts to make from this session, but I just wanted to post this series. These simple, nothing fancy pictures that illustrate why I love this accidental job I stumbled into. So, why do I take pictures? It’s the ability to capture a memory, a personality, a love, a life that motivates me to get my camera out. Most of the time I love an image that’s a little off artistically but perfect in capturing reality. The first photo that I posted here might be one of my favorites from the session with these little boys. It’s technically off. There are some flaws, but it’s just real. And, I love that.
