This photo session was shot on January 30th 2015 and I had the honor to shoot this little girl. Her name is Mya Franco and her parents, Evette and Robert, are high school friends who recently got in touch with me through my instagram page, @openhandedwithlove. This session was my second newborn photo shoot and it was done in the comforts of the parents home. After much discussion about who they were and what they were desiring for their daughters shoot, shabby chic and tulle with a classy look was the theme. I brought with me about 10 items, but only use 3; a suitcase, a basket and mama were the only components to make this shoot a success. At first, Mya’s mama was a little nervous because she wanted to make sure her baby girl would behave and make the photo shoot easy, but with confidence and ease, I made sure she knew this shoot would be a breeze. As soon as we began, Mya was such an easy baby, and made this photo shoot a piece of cake. I loved every bit of this session and am blessed to have been able to capture Mya and these moments.
My name is Jennifer Stocking, and I am the creator of OWL Photography which stands for Openhanded With Love. This simple phrase is founded in the bible in the book of Deuteronomy 15:10-11, and this is where my business and passion stands firm on. I have been photo shooting for over 12 years, and since the beginning, I began to see life through the lens of the camera changing my view of the world altogether. Through the gift of photography that God has given me, it has truly been my way of self-expression. After many years of learning, self-teaching, and with the love and hope of Jesus, I have begun this business with a purpose. My ultimate goal for OWL Photography is far greater than just a photo shoot, but to touch lives and inspire those for a greater purpose. Now I’m on a mission to make what once was a hobby of mine, now a habit for others.
