Talk about a dream shoot. Beautiful and cooperative subject, perfect spring evening, and awesome just before sunset light in a great location. What more could I ask for?
Anna is ten years old and a ballerina (note the dance costume). Oh, and her mom is a genius. She has figured out the closest thing to stopping time while her little girl keeps growing up. Every year Anna's mom has a photo session done of her daughter. I love this and not just as a photographer but as a mom. We can't freeze time and keep our little ones little but at least we can freeze a moment with them and have it to look back on forever.
As I mentioned Anna is ten. Because of her pictures her mom will always be able to remember exactly who her daughter was at ten. After diapers, bottles, first days of school, and learning to ride a bike but before makeup, boys, college applications and prom. Just ten - with freckles, a shy smile, and her ballet slippers. And because her mom has been a genius for awhile she has nice, professional pictures from every year of her daughter's life. So when ten feels too old, she can look back at nine and next year she will have eleven and will see how far she's come from ten. And when eighteen rolls around and Anna is moving out her mom will have her whole childhood in pictures so she can remember every year and how unique and wonderful it was.
See what I mean- genius. Now if someone could still try and figure out that whole stop time thing...
