Little Miss ‘D’

I promised you more of this little girl.  I could have posted 20 pictures here, they all turned out so great.  But here are a few of my favorites from her 1 year session. 

I attended a seminar recently at another local photographer’s studio.  He made a strong point about how powerful non-smiling portraits can be.  Smiles with teeth are cute, but the smile can sometimes distract from the beauty of the overall portrait.   A lot of parents love and buy the smiling pictures, but I am always drawn to more serious expressions, even on children.  There is something more timeless about it – more of an heirloom quality.  Having said all of that, this is probably my favorite of the whole session.
