Framed | Blog Carousel | Ventura Children's Photographer

Ventura child photography

It’s that time again – when I join my international professional  photographer friends in sharing our monthly Blog Carousel theme! This month we’re doing “Framed.” As before, we each decide how to creatively approach the idea, no rules, just fun.

I’m back with a black and white image I’ve been saving for this theme. These days I seem to do more color for client portraits and just love when I have the opportunity to play with the classic beauty of black and white. Photographers often use foreground elements to sort of frame our subjects and give them emphasis. For this image I enjoyed using the background as a change of pace.

Next on the Carousel is a truly FUN take on our theme by talented Calgary newborn, child and family photographer Brandy Anderson of Fresh Sugar Photography! Be sure to visit her blog and then follow along through the rest of the great “framed” entries!

One more “framed” portrait – because it makes me smile!

    I love the way you used the background elements here for the frame, and both photographs work exceptionally well for different reasons. The b/w is so fitting here too as it helps zero in right on the subjects, just like the frames do.

    How subtle and how beautiful, Je. These little guys look like they played right into your hand. I love how they fit right into their surroundings…and how their little personalities are perfectly framed! :)

    Ohhh love the framed theme, and these are perfect examples. I especially love the first one – the circular framing, and his expression/pose are great. Love your BWs!
