The other month I started our official new project with Bump Club Chicago, in which we’ll be doing monthly casting calls exclusive to Bump Club’s VIP mamas only. Last time we did a casting call for a family expecting their first little one, and this time around we were looking for a family who was currently expecting. And out of a sea of emails, one stood out particularly to me most.. I suppose there is no right or wrong way to reach out to me about participating in one of these casting calls, but I will share a quote with you that probably explains what draws me to certain people or families most -
“Whomever I’m photographing, I sort of fall in love with, or rather my camera falls in love with them. It could be a boy or a girl, because it’s all a fantasy. It’s fiction. […] I feel like there is a sense that you really have to love someone to photograph them. Not in an intimate sense, but I have to fall in love with someone with my camera to make really good pictures of them. It’s almost like I get hypnotized watching them.”
-RYAN MCGINLEY, TO GUS VAN SANT, FROM WHISTLE FOR THE WIND.
When Edyta reached out to me it was as if I could already envision photographing and falling in love with her family. And when I arrived the day of our session together it was exactly as I had imagined – lots of laughter, playing, and fun.. her adorable little girl Stella and their two sweet pups who just loved to be loved on (one of them even does what I call ‘cheek kisses’ with Lucky, so
sweet!). And I was so inspired working with them that I asked if they would allow me to come back and take pictures of baby Levi once he arrives
Anyway, I’ll let you check out some favorites of mine from our time together. Thank you so much Edyta and your entire family for allowing me the privilege of getting to know you for the day, really looking forward to coming back again soon! XO
