F-BoM March 2009: Captured by Carrie
Featured Blog of the Month: Captured by Carrie
Is it possible for Art to be Cute? If you’ve seen Carrie Sandoval’s work, then your answer will likely be yes. Your see, Carrie’s particular expertise is baby photos! Awwww…
I don’t have any children, but who doesn’t like cute babies? Carrie certainly does, and her passion and love for her tiny subjects shines through each frame.
Another reason I like her photography is quite personal. When I was a baby, maybe 5-6 months old, a photographer friend of my parents offered to take some pictures of me and them. Of course, I cannot remember the session, but I have leaved through those photographs many times during my life and I find it a simple, yet warm, deep pleasure to see my parents’ faces as they played with me, or my sincere smile as my mum made funny faces at me. It brings me closer to my parents, and I know they, especially my mum, enjoy looking over these photos too. Those parents who hire Carrie probably don’t realise it yet, but 10, 20, 30 years from now they will be so glad they had those photos taken, and it will be for reasons they cannot yet understand. Their children will also thank them for it.
