“Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy…” {Mississippi Children’s Photographer}


Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry. Sunshine on the water looks so lovely. Sunshine almost always makes me high…”~John Denver

The Mitchell family came to me recently and asked me to photograph their son in an outfit that his dad had worn for pictures as a child. His dad, Larkin, had been photographed in this outfit by a famous photographer, Franke Keating. I was shone the images prior to the session and asked to keep consistent with her style. I am honored that they would consider me as someone who could recreate the same feel that Keating had in her images. I think when she photographed children she was ahead of her time by leaps and bounds. She let kids be kids and her images reflected childhood in a unique and documentary way. I hope that the images I took for this session (and all sessions that I do) also remain timeless.
