Most of my photography is inspired by my own children and their interests. We recently went to the theater to see the new Toy Story 4. But, before I go any further, let me just say…
This movie is truly a digital artistic masterpiece in every sense of the word!
Without giving too much away, some of the movie takes place at a carnival. I was completely blown away by the spectacular detail in the lighting, lens flare, dust particles and reflections. The range of materials animated was so realistic. But the light! The beautiful abundant light bouncing and dancing off the subjects was truly phenomenal. Disney Pixar gave these characters life like no other animated movie ever has.
We saw Toy Story 4 once as a family. Then my son wanted to see it again the following week. I’d typically redirect this type of request, but I wanted to see it again too. The story line was great – I mean, Disney has that in the bag and we love these characters. So that’s no surprise. But this movie had something more. It was absolutely beautiful to watch. Maybe you have to be a lover of light or photography, to truly appreciate it. I don’t know, but I for one was absolutely captivated!
I walked out of the theater feeling completely inspired and immediately wanted to use it to fuel the next photography session.
When you’re a child, there is something really magical about going to a carnival. The bright twinkling lights, the rides, games, prizes and all the sugary sweet treats are a bit of paradise for any child. For us adults, it probably has an entirely different meaning – but we won’t go there. 😉
For this session, her mother and I wanted to create something special for this little girl. Something where her personality could really come out and shine. The session revolved around her and only her – no siblings or other family members were invited 😉 Having siblings is wonderful, but so often everything has to be shared. So a session dedicated to just her, really created a wonderfully fun memory with beautiful images to boot!
The carnival, with all its glowing lights and whimsical palette of pastels, created the perfect backdrop for this little girl’s photography session.
Thank you for stopping by! I’d love to create the session of your dreams and give you a truly wonderful experience! To book a photography session, please reach out HERE.
