Christina Mallet on Instagram: Quiet Reflection

Hello and welcome to Instagram Thursday.

Usually I’m all cheerful and chipper in this post but this week, that feels dishonest.
It’s been a heavy week, on multiple fronts and even though I’m far away in Cape Town, my American heart feels the weight.

We’ve all been inundated with news and opinions, and I think it’s time to quietly reflect, to feel, to listen and take it all in.

The photos I chose this week captured the quiet and reflection that I’m talking about–there’s also one zanny photo, which also seemed apt.

Congratulations to the featured photographers and thankful for your beautiful images.

Allison Corrin Photography: A Beautiful Summer’s Evening

Oh how I love a good maternity session!  And these images are just gorgeous!

-Sandra

From Allison:

“On a summer’s evening we met and frolicked, while the warmth bathed and the tickling grass danced, and the sweet watermelon juice dripped from pursed pink lips. These three, soon-to-be-four, fit so naturally, so beautifully together. There was no hurry, no force, just free spirited delight. I loved everything about this perfect little session.”

Elizabeth Clark Photography: A Family at the Beach

Love everything about this session!!  So sweet!

-Sandra

From Elizabeth:

“It really was a photographer’s dream shoot.  Beautiful family, cute preppy wardrobe, and, most importantly, a location that is scenic and has true meaning for the family.  Jeff’s family has had a Long Beach cottage for several generations – since before the sea wall was built! (He showed me a photo…).  It is now tradition for him and his wife to vacation there yearly, and this was daughter Georgia May’s second summer on the beach.  We decided to follow their daily routine of exploring the rocks, dipping feet in the water, and then heading to Dairy Maid for ice cream (ok, maybe it was morning and ice cream is more of an evening routine, but I figured the bright pastel colors would make a great backdrop at any time of day).  I love how much fun Georgia May had, giving me both genuine smiles and occasional skeptical smirks.  Also, the mom, Taylor, was a trooper, looking glamorous despite dealing with food poisoning!”
