Into the Woods (a preview for Michelle)


I had a lot of fun working with the Chan kids.  Before the fun though, we took the photos where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling…  You know, the ones for the grandparents and the holiday cards.  ;)   But then we made sure to spend the rest of our time playing – and that is ALWAYS where the magic happens.

With the Autumn leaves falling absolutely everywhere, we ended up with a rather magical feeling to our session.  I knew exactly the feelings I was hoping to evoke before the girls even arrived.  As always I had scouted the area before they came, looking for light and seeking out the perfect spots for them to explore.  I figured they’d be up for a wee adventure, and I was right!

waiting for me to switch my lens finding the magic don't wander too far into the woods dancing in the falling leaves

    All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this – as in other ways – they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it. — John Berger
