I have followed a well known photographer from Baltimore, Maryland & surrounding areas for years. I would say before I was a "photographer". Her simple approach is just impressive! It's a style that I strive for, now don't get me wrong I think props are super cute & I tend to get jealous of the photographers out there that come up with some of the most creative settings. But, in being true to myself...it's not me. Nothing excites me more than a solid backdrop & a hardwood floor...why, because I have to create the interest.
Back to my role model out of Maryland. She is where I got the idea for the picture below(as much as I wish I came up with this pose, I DID NOT) . There are things that I would pick apart about my picture below, all from an editing/compositing standpoint. But all in all, I am so excited that I could do this!! This picture is not what it appears....I believe in the safety of all the newborns I photograph. And Mr. Avery was safe & sound the whole time!!
