As a a painting artist I know what makes a picture work. I compose my photos much like my paintings. They are relaxed yet romantic. I am a still life artist but I love to photograph people in timeless settings.
This was a care free couple we photograph in the quaint historic town of Haddonfield New Jersey. With camera in hand we walk along the streets and explored the sights. Two small dogs crossed our path and made for a charming picture. At the end of the shoot we made our way to the roof top of their apartment. There written on the wall " your a princess, I'm a pirate, let sail the sea together.." My lyrical partner( my husband ) saw this and came up with the idea for this shot. I love it because it was perfect for this bohemian couple.
Last week I had the privilege of working with a great Photographer. Stephanie Sherwood of Sherwood photography. She has a strong sense of her self and style and makes everything look fun. Shooting as a second shooter I got to take on her style of high energy photojournalism. With my 135mm lens in had I stood on the side like a sniper waiting to capture that secret moment of emotion.
