The Marvel of a New Life

By: Alisia Green Tags: Birth Photos Black and White Photography Photographing Babies Photography
While being in labour may seem to last forever, it’s amazing how quickly we forget the finer details of giving birth. Some say it’s precisely because we don’t remember that we choose to do it all over again, but the magic of first holding a new life in your arms tells another tale.

Animal Portraits: The Study of a Horse

By: Alisia Green Tags: Animal Animal Pictures Horse Pet Portraits Photographing Horses Photography
A Noble Subject I’ve always liked horses. They have a graceful beauty that draws my attention whenever I see them standing in a field or gazing over a wooden railing with gentle curiosity. I’d never really had the chance to get to know these gorgeous animals, however, until I embarked on a photo shoot at Potten Farm Equestrian. In my limited experience, horses were faithful pets, a little like a dog who was too big to come into the house....
