How sublime! The first picture ever … May 4, 2008Posted by Georgete in black-and-white photos, Personal, Photography.
This is the first black-and-white picture I’ve ever taken. I still remember my excitement going through the entire process, from shooting to film development and printing at the darkroom.
This picture is very special to me for two reasons: First, because this is my daughter. She was five years old and was so proud of being my first ever model.
Second, because I simply LOVED how it turned out. What a sublime expression! I’m so glad that I captured and documented her softness, kindness and cute curly, dark hair!
I always joke that seven years ago I brought a Brazilian baby to the U.S. and now I have an American girl at home. It’s incredible how quickly she got engaged with the local culture.
Yep, she likes listening to rap, hip hop, r&b and pop songs. Also, she has introduced me to the world of “Jonas Brothers” and “High School Musical” 1 and 2 (it seems like there is a #3 coming up soon, OMG!).
Does she know how to samba ? Of course not.
