Faceless portraits.
These are a great way to capture people.
The nitty gritty.
The real.
The heart. 

I absolutely love them.

This theme was a great reminder for me. 
Lately I have been photographing families for their Christmas cards. 
A lot of people want a happy smiling picture with all faces looking into the lens. 
I have been trying so hard to give them that perfect picture, that I have been forgetting to be creative. 

I am pleased to introduce you to one of our new members, Stephanie Rios. Stephanie is from California and she is going to add a lot of spunk to our project. Please continue our circle and see what she is sharing today. 



We would be thrilled if you would share a faceless portrait on our facebook wall. We absolutely love seeing all of your images on our wall each month. Your creativity is astounding!

I love these! Faceless portraits are one of my favorite types of photos. These are amazing.

Jim said...

Sometimes just 'part' of the story is all we need. We can usually put together the rest from what we have in front of us. I really like these Becky....good idea.

((((SCREAMS)))) i am in LOOOOOOVE with this post!!! why are you so freaking amazing?!!! and...and is that MY BABY?!!! i am TOO geeked! (hence all the capital letters, and what not, ha!)

the photo of the hand holding resonated deeply with me. i can't even begin to describe what that photo touched on in my own heart. it felt like lost, and love and faith all in one.

so, toots father had an idea for me to shoot that's a teeny bit similar to your magazine shot. i cracked up when i saw it. LOVE it.

is that a veteran walking? it tells such a story. you are GREATness. how you view and color the world is beyond magnificent.

(p.s: i giggled at the last shot, remembering how my OCD kicked in and i attempted to clean them up)

i'm so honored that my baby is apart of your body of work. your images are going up in her new room. yup!

Dear Becky, I have just finished watching a terrible, horrible scary movie with my husband, and he was able to go right to bed after the movie. I told him I needed to go wash my brain out before I could go to sleep, thinking I might numb myself into a fog and be able to rest. So of course, I went straight to facebook, then found your link. Instead of numbing me, you just healed my poor traumatized mind. Thank you for restoring my sense of loving kindness and well being. Now, I can go to bed happy. You make me smile in my heart.

Kris's Kaptured Moments said...

Oh Becky, you are so talented. I love the compassion shown with the holding hands, excitement in the feet on the swing and the love of the little ones holding hands.

Pam D said...

You have always been the master of the faceless portrait to me. You understand how chubby fingers can tell the story.. the WHOLE story. Or cool shoes, or crazy hair, or any other piece of a picture that tells more, sometimes, than the entire picture.

Camila Faria said...

Oh WOW, what a fantastic collection of portraits. Really beautiful. I can't decide which one is my favorite. Maybe the hands close up... or the shadow... Lovely work!

Sarah Ricci said...

love your photo's, as always!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Skeller said...

Christina said...

You tell the best, most beautiful stories, Becky. For real.
