It may have been noticed that over the last year my photo output may have dwindled. There are lots of reasons for this, the majority of which I won’t go into, but the main reason is my daughter who turned one last month. As is common with new parents (not that I am a new parent as I already have one who just turned 23) you spend a lot of time photographing the baby and capturing those special moments… especially if you are some kind of photographer; and I have been doing just that.
I don’t usually share pictures of my family here but I though I might share pictures that I guess might be considered a project. It’s not really a project just a bit of fun my wife and I have been having which hopefully our girl won’t object to too much when she’s older.
To explain the background a little, my wife is bit of a Disney-phile; meaning that she likes all things Disney. I wouldn’t say she is obsessed, she works for Disney and that was her main ambition when growing up. As a result we visit the parks quite often and we have quite a bit of Disney merchandise.
So from a photography point of view, after the birth of our daughter we embarked on a schedule of taking pictures once a month each with a different Disney theme. At the same time we also took a monthly non-Disney photographs as the official monthly anniversaries came along and also marked certain holidays and such (like the featured picture above). I have not done much (if any) studio photography and I don’t usually do portraiture so this was a bit of a challenge for me and we had to improvise quite a lot especially in terms of lighting and backgrounds. We worked as a team; my wife the art director and ‘client’ and me the technical side; trying to make it work and capturing the pictures. Our daughter did her part in posing perfectly for us and smiling as needed.
So here are the twelve ‘Disney’ photos we were able to createContinue reading “A year of photos”
