It is so hard to believe summer is over and the days are already noticeably shorter. This summer was unexpectedly packed with sessions that challenged my thinking, integrity, and dedication to approach; Moving more fully into a candid approach has been one of the most rewarding experiences for my clients, as well as for my own personal growth. I work primarily with young children in portraiture, so getting sincere expressions and body positions to illustrate that certain stage of their lives is very important. Summer’s portrait experiences were reminders about how much of a joy it is to work with children, on any occasion, in any weather conditions, and how much it means to be trusted taking photographs for parents.
Several weeks have gone by without sharing an individual session. Since the blog content is undergoing transition, I decided to select a few favorite images from the season-passed. Future blog posts will move away from individual sessions altogether, so this post’s blend of faces and places is a great segue for what’s to come.
Return of the ‘Giveaway’ Posts in October: All future giveaways will feature books and/or eBooks from various genres, authors, and subjects
reflections | volume one: “QUIET” by yours truly: Intended to come out last week, the design process is (admittedly) slowing me down a bit. Very close to ready and will be available for eBook download, with optional donation.
Long Essay to be published: I am currently developing an essay on ethical concerns surrounding modern photography. The full essay will be available in 5×5 Magazine’s Winter Issue.
New Content: All around, the blog will have some interesting things going on — lots more writing, conversation starters, downloadable Blog “Issues”, valuable info that you can apply to your daily life, stuff you can utilize…. Overall, the higher quality and more intimate vibe will be quickly noticeable. I want this to be a space for readers and followers to ‘escape to light’. I’m excited that ’escapetolight’ now has an ‘official’ logo to complement this change. Sort of just going with it rather than planning *too* much, unless it’s a video blog — in which case, planning is very necessary when you’re me, hehee. If you have suggestions or requests for specific posts, please feel free to leave me a comment!
