Black & White Photography – Westchester County Family Photographer


Inevitably, there are those images that just “stick” with me for one reason or another. Sometimes it’s the color, sometimes it’s the light…and then sometimes it’s this…

Originally, I ignored this photo of MJ running in the woods with her “Pup Pup” because the color was irritating me and I didn’t want to deal with it at the time. Luckily, I went back to it a few weeks ago and converted it to black & white (which is PRECISELY what it should have been all along). Just, well, a big happy sigh. For me, this is just everything that childhood should be…exploration, a sense of fun, but still needing the reassurance and security that a favorite stuffed friend brings. Just like those emotions, black & white children’s photography maintains such a timeless & classic feel.

So, sometimes, we get this. We get light and movement and joy and adventure…all rolled into one beautiful little package. As a Westchester County family photographer, I’ve always loved photographing children outdoors. It allows for such exploration and curiosity – I’m always amazed at the wonder on tiny faces when they seen something for the first time. So, when I Heart Faces announced their new photo challenge theme {Beautiful BW}, I knew this was it.  If you’ve never visited their site before, you should definitely check it out. It’s candy for the eyes…
