|Jordan and Haper | Newborn Photography Session | New Wilmington, PA|
I always feel honored when asked to photograph a significant moment of someones life. The opportunity to ask through my lens..."Who are you?" and "Where are you going?". The chance to capture the most authentic aspects of a relationship.
The above image is the epitome of the relationship between Jordan and his newborn sister Harper. A soft tender moment between siblings that will forever stand as a testament of Jordan's love for Harper. Of how happy he is to have her in his life.
I hope that I have many more opportunities to photograph this little girl as she grows. But I think that this image will always mark a major milestone in my creative journey. That sometimes.. when something is at it's most challenging. That God intervenes and things come together. That the opportunity to capture a truly beautiful portrait will come. The subject will show you his heart. Hard work and the anxiety will bear fruit. Your vision will manifest into something greater than you anticipated and your client will have an image that will portray some of the miracle of life. And that some part of themselves that is hidden from the rest of the world will be revealed.
I believe that great images come from somewhere else...somewhere outside of artist. Gabrielle Boiselle who I had the great honor of shooting with last June said that "great images come not from the artist....but from God". I have to believe that as well.
