A week ago I posted part 1 of the new style of photography I am offering. It’s not like a regular session, in that no one gets dressed up or does anything special. It’s just life, and I love it. Lens comparison at the bottom of the post!
So here’s part 2, and here’s 13 reasons why every Mom needs to do this:
1: Before your child, you never realized how sweet a meal could be.2: No one else makes a toy look quite as enthralling as he does.3: He won’t always be smaller that your dog.4: He won’t always take 20 minutes putting on a piece of clothing. Or be as proud when he does.5: His perspective is the right one.6: You worked so hard to teach him to do it, you should have a record of it.7: Cause he’s stinkin’ cute!8: Because practiced smiles never look as good as the real kind.9: So you’ll have proof later when he’s a teenager. Or ammunition.10: So you never forgot the little habits.11: Because Peek-a-Boo is just a phase.12: So grandma can see how much he loves his gift.13: Because you’ll never ever regret it.
By the way, this session was shot entirely with a Sigma 50mm 1.4 lens, which I rented for the weekend. It’s a fantastic lens, especially useful when it’s very dark. The sharpness was very good too, the only times my photographs would go soft was when I’d get too close to my subject, since I’m in the habit if being able to shoot at 24mm. Once I learned that, though, everything was awesome. I’ll definitely be buying this lens! Compare the two, if you’d like, by seeing the last Lifestyle post, which was shot with the Sigma 24-70mm 2.8.
