You have been following my work for a while now, or maybe you are new to following me. Have you ever wondered where I get my ideas behind creative fine art photography? I am here to tell you about some of my ideas and inspirations. As a childhood portrait photographer ideas and inspirations come quite easy to me, which is why I chose the niche of child portraiture!
Inspiration for creative fine art photography
Sometimes I can have an idea quickly come to me. Other times I have to seek what I might be looking for in terms of inspiration. I try to think of unique ideas, unlike other photographers. Sometimes I do find inspiration in other photographers, but add my own style of editing into the mixture which makes it my very own fine art.
Getting creative for child portraiture
Since I primarily shoot children, it is easy for me to get creative. I have my own daughter so I think about all of the things that make her childhood “magical” or the types of things that I as her mom want to hold onto and cherish forever. I can think up ideas of things that she likes to do, or ways that we want to portray her childhood memories. Sometimes I even go for portraits that portray the upbringing that we remember in our own childhood. For me that would be the 80’s & 90’s.
Fine Art Photography is descriptive
Fine Art Photography isn’t a normal type of thrown together session. It takes ideas, and an image that you want to portray. It takes time and planning and you have to have a finished idea in your head. You definitely have to have a creative mind, and that doesn’t come to some easily. Thankfully I consider myself very creative when it comes to Fine Art Photography. Follow me on Instagram to view my creative fine art photography journey!
