Well I’m back from my blogging hiatus with a new outlook and perspective on my chosen field. For the past few months I’ve been working on my big graduation finale. Most people who are familiar with my style of photography know that I have had my feet firmly planted in the soil of photojournalism for quite some time now. I have buried myself into my graduation portfolio which is entirely photojournalism. I just barely poke my head up to see the light of day, that is how consumed I am. I call it dedication, everyone else sees it as a tad obsessive. Tomato tomahto.
Recently my good friend Jill wanted me to do some photos of her daughter. After reading the above paragraph you can gather that child portraits aren’t really my thing, but I said yes regardless. This would be my first child/family portrait style shoot so yeah I was a little apprehensive, but I could handle it nonetheless. Considering that the last subjects I photographed were sad dogs in dirty kennels, and the subject before that was a sweaty, beer drenched mosh pit, photographing a baby would cake. And it was. I loved every minute of it, I don’t know why I was so against child portraits before. I still love photojournalism but this isn’t a bad alternative.
