It’s the little details that make up our lives that are so important.
When I’m photographing something or someone I always make the effort to look a little closer. What am I missing? What do I want to make sure that I capture? What helps tell my story?
These images above are some of my favorite little detail images. I love that in photo at my son’s football game I know that it’s raining because I made sure to get the detail of the corner of the umbrella in the shot. I love that the image of my boys playing chess shows the scene from a different view with the detail focusing on the board of play. Yes, a photo of my daughter with her cute little name tag would have fit the bill…but focusing in on the name tag with a hint of her smile tells such a great story.
