Very often I prefer black and white processing to color. Sometimes removing color also removes distractions and gives more focus to the subject. It is raw and pure and adds a timelessness to the image. I decided that for this blog post, I would indulge in an all black and whites. Two families with four cousins, came together on a sunny Saturday for one of my spring mini-sessions. The children were beautiful and well-behaved and all the adults were happy that spring had finally seemed to arrive. A very pleasant morning indeed. Now don’t worry guys, there are plenty of nice ones in color too…

Outdoor winter session….hmmmm….I’m kind of a wimp about the cold, so I was a little worried. I think I wore about 15 layers just to be sure I’d survive. Well, the temperature was no problem for these dapper cousins. Some kids are just oblivious to the cold and these guys were too busy having fun to even notice that it was winter out. Granted, this was before the onslaught of snow, but still! Anyway, talk about great models! Look how handsome they are and I love their natural posing. The grounds at Ringwood Manor made braving the cold so worth it! I love the natural textures of wood, stone and ivy…what beautiful backdrops.
A huge thank you to their aunt…she not only arranged the session as a surprise to her sister and mother but she was AWESOME at getting them to giggle at just the right moments!!! Love that!
