If you follow my Facebook page, then you've read me lament my lack of skill as a photographer. I'm a hit and miss kind of gal when it comes to photographing my work and it makes me crazy. That might be why I'm so appreciative of great photography. One night about a month ago, I was browsing around a few new Facebook pages and came across something that literally brought me to tears. It was this picture:
|JAM Photography's image of a Mother and Child|
This picture was, and still is, so powerful to me. You see, I had a c-section with both of my babies and my memory is very fuzzy and disjointed for about the first 24 hours following each of their births. As I looked at this image, I so wished that I'd had someone take pictures of that precious time for me. The brilliant young woman who took this picture is Ashlie from JAM Photography.
Ashlie's gift unfolded before me as I clicked through the photographs on her page. She has an eye for contrast that floors me.
|The ring on the babies toe so perfectly illustrates how tiny and fragile are new babies.|
She also has that special understanding of sexy and how to photograph a woman's sexiness without stepping over the line into crass or tawdry.
|To me, this is sexy and glorious - the kind of photograph I'd want of myself to share with my husband.|
Needless to say, I'm a huge fan of Ashlie's work. You can find her Facebook page here, complete with a Payvement store where you can buy her still life work as cards, prints, even dry-erase boards! Please take a moment to stop by her page and see her beautiful work - I promise, you won't be sorry you did. She already knows I'm a fan!
