Welcome to Photo Love. This is the title I give to the blog posts I write about one photo and why I love it. Sometimes I love the photo because of the composition or lighting, while other times it is because of the story behind the photo. My favourite photos are when there is a combination of both. I hope you enjoy the story and the photo.
Meet Lexie; newest arrival of Lucy and Tim, and little sister to Henry.
The arrival of a new baby is an incredibly joyful time. I am in the fortunate position to have first hand knowledge of this feeling. My son is just over three months old. I tried to anticipate what the feeling would be like to see him for the first time, and when the moment came, it wasn’t even close. Three months in and I still smile like an idiot when I am playing with him.
This is why I love this photo so much; the smiles. Look at the smiles on their faces. As a photographer the trick is to get people to smile and make it look natural. This is very hard to do. The best way I can explain it to people is to “smile with your eyes”. Do you think I had to say that to this family? No way.
Thanks for reading.
