carefully composed photographs
In all my photo taking for other people it seemed that we rarely set things up to photograph them in their homes. It's such a natural place for kids to be that I was kind of surprised and wonder if perhaps the reason is that they think they are going to end up with lovely pictures of their kids in a pile of laundry with a grocery list and a vacuum for a backdrop.
I just about always photograph my own kids at home (with not only that stuff but also dirty dishes, boxes from Amazon and never ending paint project cans all over the place) and I think the magic trick photographer people learn is simply to slide stuff out of the way.
So today I wanted to show my nice newly painted toy room wall.
But it seemed a slight bit unauthentic without the in-process octogenarian wood floor project, mondo pile of magically scooted over stuff and other two neglected walls. There you go.
And then my sewing spot with the quilt that stares me in the face longing for a backside just looked pretty.
