sprinklers are more fun

A solar eclipse is interesting but, if you’re a kid, sprinklers are more fun. (Photographed during the 2017 solar eclipse at the National Mall, Washington DC.)

Reflection

isaac – tenth day

I work with a lot of kids and their families, but I do not often have the opportunity to photograph a newborn. This past June I had the joy of photographing Isaac with his parents in their cozy apartment home. At just 10-days-old (plus an extra 7 days in utero), Isaac was ready for his debut photo shoot.

The set includes shots of candid moments…

 

… as well as planned images composed under controlled lighting in a living-room-turned-makeshift-studio.Isaac's debut photo shoot

I hope that the resulting series of photographs clearly reveal the warmth and love that I easily observed on Isaacs tenth day.

I love photographing children in a natural environment where I can capture them just being children (more on that coming soon). And when my subject is a beautiful 2-year-old with amazing parents and a few extended family members to add some spice… and when the scheduled session is greeted by a spectacular, golden morning… this is a photographer’s playpen (at least for those of us who have fun with photographing kids).  Last month I had exactly this good fortune when I photographed Sarah.
