I haven’t done a blog post entirely in black and white for quite a while. When I first started to photograph children, I only used BW film. It was a nice change from the vivid Fuji Velvia slide film that I would shoot for editorial garden photography. When digital came along I started to show more color and more of my clients would choose color over black and white. I happen to love both and would encourage you to think of choosing a few images in black and white after your next session.
I miss the simplicity of black and white images and have been doing more and more personal work in BW. This work can be seen @stephmasseyphoto on Instagram. Black and white will always be classic, but can also feel fresh and modern.
I was delighted to have Mr. G’s mom contact me about a photo session and to learn that she prefers black and white! So here you go mom, a few of my favorites in black and white of your beautiful baby boy! Your gallery will be ready soon where you as always, will be able to see both color and black and white proofs.
