I have been busy recently with assignments and, of course, have neglected to keep my website up to date – sorry! I am writing today to describe the process involved in one of my more popular services, infant portraiture. Making the determination to invite a photographer into your home with a newborn is stressful and I hope to cast light on the process and what to expect before I arrive.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph Doug, an old friend of mine, at his fantastic Westcott Barbershop in Syracuse, New York. I took my time setting up and had an opportunity to watch Doug interact with his clients – he’s a natural entertainer, and all of the people who came in – young and old alike – had a laugh and were instantly part of the gang. I had an absolute blast catching up, making a few portraits, and sharing a couple of lies.
I recently photographed “O”, a.k.a. Astronaut Santa (or was it Spaceman Santa?), and his newborn brother at their home in Washington, D.C. While setting up my lights for a group portrait, O brought out his new astronaut helmet and, of course, we had to make a quick portrait of him wearing it.
I recently had the opportunity to make baby Sasha’s portrait and had a lovely time with her and her family. Her parents have created an absolutely perfect little girl and I appreciate them trusting me with her portrait. Please “like” us on Facebook.
