inspiration: pt. 1

 the first part of this series is going to be portrait inspiration. i LOVE taking pictures of children and seniors, so this is my favorite kind. 

surprisingly i got a lot of my children/senior inspiration from kids clothing magazines. some of my favorites? 

mini boden. [the pictures might be a little blurry because i am grabbing them off of the site] 


the photography is so clean-lined and fun. very candid which is definitely my style. i recommend you look at their website for more inspiration (and cute clothing! :D) 


next: johnnieb. this is the same company just for teens! i LOVE the candid shots. they really do a wonderful job with this. 




garnet hill is next. fresh and fun, this company specializes in COLOR. i love bright pops of color a lot. 



some other favorite portrait photographers:

megan russell
imkristen (she does weddings, but i get a lot of inspiration from her work!)
jessica shae 

what photographers inspire you? 

even if you don't prefer this style, comment. because it gets you in the contest. ;)

I really like the second Garnet Hill one - what a cool prop. :)
As for photographers who inspire me, I would say my favorites are Megan Russell and Peter Bang.

These are cute pictures! :) And I don't really have any photographers who inspire me, because I'm not really into photography, but I enjoy looking at people's pictures! Like yours. ;)
