Experimental Portrait of Mila by 

I want to try new things, explore new styles, change my perspective. This is a start. : ) Mila – nearly six – my ever faithful little model.

Please let me know what you think, for real, what you like, what you don’t like (seriously, I won’t be offended!) and if you have any idea, links, pointers for styles / portraits you think I should try, well, that would be awesome!! (No pressure, lol!)

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Marvelous Mila looks like she’s having a bad day. Maybe fussing with Reilly or something. I love the magnificent blue eyes of hers. She make me want to hug and kiss her or give her some chocolate. This is a very tender and deep portrait. I love the selected focus and the artsy blurring. Delightful shot micklyn.

  • Thank you, Seth, you are so encouraging! :)

    Beautiful! Micklyn, I applaud your effort at attempting new styles, it’s only by experimenting that we come up with work that is truly remarkable. (we may get a few dud along the way also, but that’s part of the learning) Don’t stay safe, push the boundaries you’ll discover magic – like this photograph of the gorgeous Mila.

  • Thanks, Linda, for your very encouraging words!! I agree, I think I need to experiment more in my search for work that is truly remarkable. : ) x
