Please join me in welcoming my newest blog sponsor, Lenka Hattaway Photography. I had the pleasure of working with Lenka recently for a lifestyle photo shoot. I needed photos of our family for a forthcoming book I have been asked to contribute to.
Lenka, herself a mother of two girls, came to our home and immediately connected with Maia and Daphne. She chatted and made us all feel as if we had an old friend in our home rather than a Photographer with a capital P. Yes, she took pictures, but the picture-taking was unobtrusive. She rarely directed (although she wasn't afraid to), but rather let our day take its course and recorded it as we went — making everyone feel at ease, and thus photographing us as who we are.
I first got to know Lenka's work when my good friend Rachel had her photograph her new baby, Desmond (brother to toddler art group member Joe and to two former toddler art group members Nathan and Justin). She did an amazing job of capturing his little spirit and utter newborn-ness on film. Besides babies, Lenka also photographs children, families, and pregnancies.
