Black & White Child Photography

Christina Greve Photography

I took some black and white pictures of this little angel last week. She was such a natural talent in front of my lens and so sweet.

I love the idea of that timeless portrait that will still look amazing 20-50 years from now.

Many years ago, I got some black & white pictures taken of my own kids – they were so little back then. I clearly remember that day like it was yesterday (funny how some days stand out more than others), maybe because it was the first time I ever took them to a real photographer.

I picked them up from nursery and pre-school and in the back of my very messy and child-friendly Chrysler van I changed them into clean and pretty clothes, washed their cute little faces and did their hair.

Off we went to be photographed….. in a supermarket…oh yes that´s right! You know when a photographer has a corner in the middle of all the groceries!!

I wonder who in the world ever got that funny idea! Anyway I must admit that the photographer was really amazing. She had her own style – which was timeless with a hint of vintage. The photos were B/W with a touch of brown tones, which made them look timeless and pretty.

Those pictures are my most valued treasure today – and I feel so happy I did it, even if it was in the supermarket :-)

Adorable images, Christina! This little girl is so expressive. It must have been fun to photograph her. :-) I love the timeless black and white look!

The story about taking your children to be photographed really moved me… Many people photograph their children with their mobile phones and maybe never get their pictures printed out. It’s an enormous loss for them, if the pictures get lost in a broken mobile phone or laptop… I’m also moved by your compassion and appreciation for the photographer working in the supermarket. You are a lovely person, Christina! <3

Thank you so much Ada :-)

Yes, it´s a story about NOT judging a photographer on location/studio, that´s for sure :-) It´s the heart and soul they put into their work that counts, right!

Happy lovely weekend dear :-)
