My dream to heal with photography had a reinvigoration the past two weeks. The workshop with Tamara Lackey opened my eyes to so many ideas I’d never considered. It’s no understatement to say I feel reborn as a photographer. I used as much as I’d learned possible while working in Colorado the past week.
A highlight from my trip was photographing my dear friend’s daughters. The excuse for the photo shoot was a tatted dress made by her great-grandmother. They had photos of her mother, herself and her first daughter in the same dress. It’s exquisite. My last day there we found time to photograph her second daughter in the same dress.
All images taken with the Canon 5D Mark iii and the 135mm F1.8. Edited in Lightroom using a custom sepia preset I created. It was overcast that day. ISO 400. F2. Shutter 1/2000.
I’m letting the images speak for themselves. It’s always incredible to capture childhood through photography.
