Onward to the New Year

One of the best things about this job is the chance to look back, to look in the rear view mirror. Many of my wedding clients go on to make scrumptious families and I get to watch them grow. It’s a slow process and if I work with someone fairly often, it isn’t as evident to me until I start putting pictures from the different times side by side.

Stephanie and Lee have been a favorite couple of mine… there is such an easy grace to their relationship. I saw it on the wedding day and in the planning beforehand and it continues as they raise their two rambunctious daughters.

The first one laid the groundwork for a couple of years before the second one came along. This latest session was a fine example of fully present parents and charming children with just enough wild in them to make life good.

If you haven’t considered keeping your favorite photographer on hand to document your family every now and then, you might want to think about it. I know this blog has been wedding-centric since it started in 2009 but in 2017, I plan on posting more of the other work here, too. Families and babies, sure, but also head shots and senior portraits and the like. People photography. ;0)

Onward to the New Year… it’s time to leave 2016 in the rear view mirror!

Head shots… seems like just about everybody needs one sooner or later. I enjoy the challenge of it… as a photographer, you have to be mindful of how the image will be used. Are we talking about a very conservative banker or do we have an actor in need of a fresh look? It’s important to match the personality with the look. I am pleased to see people pushing the edges as it suits them… head shots are now varied and much more interesting than in years past.headsblog_1w These are all professional people in their own right. Considering the sheer volume of connecting we do these days, it seems to me that we should put on a fresh face when we have outgrown the old one. I’d be happy to talk to you about a session if you are in the market.
