As a Children’s photographer here in Chicago I’ve taken hundreds of “favorites”, this time we’re doing a remix of some of these old faves.
This upcoming slow season I plan on doing a revamp and as I look through my old galleries I see how my work is evolving, how my world outlook has effected the art of my work, essentially my vision.
As I progress through life I find myself feeling freer, lighter. Less dark, less moody (which in my work I loved), more certain of my place in the world, more sure of who I am and where I am headed. My work is more reflective of this and I thought it’d be a fun artistic endeavor to play with some images as a sort of artistic study. I took about 30 minutes one morning and chose a few images to redo. I wasn’t too picky but I still chose some favorites from the past to play with.
I came up with these versions. I loved the old versions (and maybe I’ll showcase those later) but in this world filled with dark, gloom, moodiness I definitely welcome the light and airy. It’s time to shed my skin (I feel like I do a big change every seven years) – shedding my skin and moving forward.
Thank you to all my clients who continue to grow with me and my artistic growth. I promise I will continue to produce the quality of imagery you have come to expect from me and much like Picasso I guess I have had a blue period. 😀
