I read on Pinterest a sign that said..”You are not a real photographer if you only take pictures of your kids!!”… Say whom!? I would reply! who make the rules of photography in this world?? isn’t photography a art form? isn’t art subjective? I must disagree with that statement or I must not be a real photographer!! because I take a lot of photograph of my kids.. So I am signing up to the unreal photographer club and I am proud to say that I feel very special to be part of it.. My childrens are amoung my very very favorit subjects, I never get enough and the great thing with kids is that they keep growing and offering you deferent looks.. so it doesn’t get old.. beside what would have said Sally Mann that made a living photographing her kids and became one of america most acclaimed artiste in the world of photography.if some one had told her not to photograph her children’s all the times if she wanted to be a real photographer?? What about my sweet friend Deb Schwedhelm that is following the same path of success as Sally Mann, her kids are her number one main subjects.. I think it isn’t really how many time the same face is used that make the picture, it is the emotion felt and the ability that the photographer has to capture it. If that same persons is the best inspiration subject for the artiste.. it work. that is why artist have MUSES, the Muse would bring the best out of the artist abilities to create emotions because he is inspired buy that persons.. my kids do that for me..so as a non real photographer I am now legally authorize to photograph them all the times..

The Spring session Created for Dreamer journal was a privilege to create for me, because I got to Photograph the close of one of my dear childhood friend, Astride Arnaud. She is the designer behind the cute French brand
“Les p’tits cailloux”. She design close for every day wear but also for special ovations.. I love her simple lines and her choice of colors and fabric.. It made me want to have many more kids just to dress them up. But not only I had the privilege to photograph Astrid close i Also got the chance to photograph into Cavalier hotel, It’s is the most famous and luxurious hotel here in Virginia beach , and Usually no one is allowed to photograph in ti , except on special occasions like a wedding or such , but i had the chance to meet with the write peoples and was allowed to have the all hotel to myself for a few hours.. what a treat!! it’s a fabulous place ( If you don’t believe in ghost) because it is also the most hunted place knower in Virginia.. You will have to go read about that!! the cherrie on the top of the cake was my sweet photographer friend Jessica Palatt hat came to assist me once again..
it’s just not the same with out her.
Result ?! I love what we created!! I like teem work and it all came out just as I had hoped for..
