INFO: In an age where we snap thousands of images of our kids to capture those moments we want to cherish, we seldom sit down and put our thoughts to paper on what it all means; what it feels like to watch your most precious creation grow up, experience the world and the deep love we have for them. The project consists of two parts. A letter and a portrait. And the best part is, it is completely FREE.
The first part is a love letter from parent to child. The letter could be a story you feel is important for them to know more about, what the process of being their parent means to you, or how has your life changed for the better because they are in it. It is completely up to you on what that looks like but hopefully it is heartfelt and honest.
The second part are the portraits themselves. I wanted to really limit myself to a specific pace and set of equipment. All of the portraits will be shot with a 4x5 using a 150 year old Petzval lens. Each image is hand development and scanned. I wanted the photographic process to be a reflection of how much care and effort it takes to raise a child.
The project will be starting up again in September of 2016!!! If you are interested in participating, please click the link below and feel out a contact form. As this project has gotten a lot of attention, please be patient for my response.
