Families and Newborns: Shooting with Emotion and Connection
“Look at how deeply flawed we are and yet capable of loving so perfectly.” Sanober Khan
There is one thing I have learned working so many years in a veterinary hospital is the need to feel love and connection from another. People want to be hugged, they want the touch of another person on their skin. Human beings have a great need to be loved and needed by someone. I know all of us need to be loved. We need to feel someone else’s arms around us, we crave the feeling of a child’s arms around our neck, it is oxygen to our hearts to feel the love of others.
This is the feeling that I wish to channel into my sessions. For me, I can do everything “technically” perfect but if the image lacks emotion or connection it falls flat. I want to shoot what I feel from my clients as they are with me. I know for a mother the feeling of her children’s arms around her neck is better than any diamond necklace in the whole world. The smell of your newborn is far greater than any expensive bouquet of flowers. Or that the feeling of his arms around you and the smell of his skin is far more intoxicating than anything else in this world. I want to capture these emotions for you so that when you look at your images your heart swells with emotion and you get that funny tight feeling in the back of your throat.
When I create, this is what my vision is for you. I can shoot technically perfect pictures all day long. But if I don’t shoot with emotion and connection the image does nothing for me. It doesn’t stand out it falls flat.
