You’ve likely always been told to shoot with the sun at your back. I’m here to tell you – break the rules.

I learned how to shoot into the light from my mentor and teacher Kristen in her awesome Click Class (highly recommend!)

There’s something so special about the soft light that you capture.

Jack was singing to me from his book while sitting on my bed in front of the window.  The light was spilling in and I couldn’t resist.  It takes practice for sure to get the right exposure – I overexpose so that he isn’t dark.

I love these in B&W as well
