Just over a week ago I was able to spend some time with baby Trika in my studio. Her family was mainly looking for some good shots of their cute little girl. Sounds easy enough? It was. We spent just over 30 minutes letting Trika crawl around, putting her in place, taking a picture, and repeating. In the end we had a full set of great photos of baby Trika (who is about to turn one!). She did her best to show her serious side, but we got some smiley, playful ones in there too.
When I edit photos, I always pick a few to put into black and white. Some photos just look better in black and white - the way it removes the focus from the surroundings and hones in on the subject and emotion of the photo. ALL of Trika's photos looked amazing in black and white. With her perfect skin and her big dark eyes that just shine when she looks into the camera, she just glows in black and white. It seriously made me gasp when I saw this photo below of her.
I've posted a few black and white and a few colors, I'll let you decide... Please feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you think!
