My Niche - Creative Photography!

I have recently fallen in love with creative photography!  Creative photography can be defined as many things.  It can be as simple as just being creative with props, poses, and location, but it can also be a completely altered image.  Simply put, it is defined as, "altered reality."   

Creative photography is an extension of conventional photography into creative art. Its purpose is to stimulate creative thoughts and encourage experimentation with new ideas going beyond a simple photograph.

My first creative photo, December 2014

I discovered creative photography by accident.  I stumbled upon a Facebook group with some amazing artists!  These artists assisted the members of the group by creating challenges.  They would supply several images and we had to combine them as we envisioned.  

I love all forms of photography!  Capturing a moment in time is absolutely priceless to me.  Creative photography allows you to add elements into an image which can make it more fun and playful (as above) or it can give extra meaning to an image which is otherwise impossible to capture. 

A creative photograph that enhances an image to add emotion.  This little boy was sick and passed away.  He always wanted to climb a tree, but was unable to do so.  A member in the group mentioned above asked us to create a photograph of the young boy climbing a tree.  These photographs were impossible to capture, but have a lot of meaning for the family.

This summer I took advantage of my six children being home and had fun with creative photography!  My younger girls were my models and the older kids helped with the setup, posing, and ideas.  We turned our living room into a sea.  We turned an ordinary sunset into a painting.  And I currently have plans for the puffy clouds in a bright, blue sky!  The possibilities are endless with creative photography!

The living room became a sea with boats!

From time to time I have "Imagination Mini-Sessions."  I typically have two themed Imaginative Mini-Sessions per year which are specially priced and have a very limited availability.  However, I am toying with the idea of adding a Christmas themed Imagination Mini-Session.

If you have a certain theme in mind, just let me know and I can put together something special for your family!  The sky is the limit with creative photography!
