Backlighting is a photography term mean “to illuminate from behind”. I love to use this technique in my sessions. Illuminating beautiful things is special, because sometimes they go unnoticed.

What is it about backlighting that works? It’s the contrast. The contrast between the dark and light is what draws the eye in.

This concept speaks to me, because there are difficulties in life. The darkness is what makes the light so beautiful. There are hard times in between our best times. Experiencing both is what makes the best times feel so good. When your world feels dark, let the light from those around you shine in.

As humans, we are not perfect. We have downfalls along with our talents. Embracing ourselves, good and bad, is healthy. It’s perfect.
