Tangerines and loveliness!

It’s this baby girl’s first birthday, and when I attempted to make a still-life out of her, she and the cat made it very clear that there was not going to be any sitting still. (How naïve of me!) Yet, then the shoot turned into the perfect mix of planned and unplanned.

The cat started out as my model (great for metering – thanks cat!):

It was a friendly cat, but we thought it best to get him off the table:

so that I could get some cleaner shots:

but that cat was all about that table:

This a great example of how shoots can be a collaboration between the photographer and the subject (and sometimes even the subject’s pets!).

Newborn session: Due on Christmas day, came a little early…

with 2 comments

I wanted to share this session with everyone because it was rather special: while I normally go to people’s houses to shoot newborns, these guys came to me in the studio! This was great because in the studio, I can exhibit a lot more control over lighting conditions and set-up. And he was such a beautiful baby!

Here he is, 12 days old:

The new parents:

Black and white Baby Rothko:

Congratulations to the new fam!

Favorite Christmas Moment

with one comment

This series is my favorite photo series of Christmas day: my sister bought the two youngest boys the same green dump truck, which they opened at the same time and got very excited about. It was insanely adorable.

Opening the truck to ooo’s and ahhh’s:

they proceeded to drive them all over the house:

and then catapult them off the stairs:

and laugh hysterically:

and yell “TRUUUUUCK!” triumphantly. Victory!

I’m writing this post as all four grandkids and various adults are running around the house screaming “ALLIGATOR!! POLAR BEAR!!!” (Working during the holidays is a little harder than I imagined.)

Happy Holidays Everyone! 🙂
