This year in my Facebook group Emotional Storytelling we have been working to inspire and create new images based on weekly themes. For the next four weeks we are focusing on images of children! This is where photography really began for me and where I draw my best inspiration. Their carefree nature and all the wild things they do have heavily influenced they way I approach photography.

Last week will we shared all of the beautiful ways you can capture an embrace between a child and a loved one. These are always my favorite images from a session and I love how they come out different every single time and these artists did not disappoint!  We had so many beautiful submissions I had to separate them, so you can check out our gorgeous black and white collection here if you missed it!


And a couple of special features from two of my favorite series that were shared!  The first is from Jenny Ann Holden who "was inspired to create images that speak to the courage it takes to be a mother in a world still set on making girls feel small."


Lastly is this beautiful series photographed by Justyna Charette who also shared some beautifully photographed self portraits of her family. "These mean so much to me. What I love is that it can never be replicated."


We would love to have you follow along and join the conversation in our Facebook group Emotional Storytelling with Twyla Jones
