The baby photography industry is a saturated one. There are so many ‘cute’ examples of babies in plant pots, swaddled tightly sleeping or a little girl in a tutu and headband. Although often gorgeous, they just aren’t how I see babies.
I see the world how I see the world. I’ve read how we are the sum of every book that we have ever read, every film that we have ever seen, every song that we have ever heard & how there can never be another one of us as our life experiences are subjective & therefore unique.
My viewpoint of the world doesn’t differ, however old the subject that I photograph. I approach children, as I would adults, as I do babies. This seems to be an unusual approach. I am differing from industry norms because I don’t change my approach for the age of whom I am photographing. I see the world how I see the world & when photographing babies this is how I see it.
