Oh boy am I excited about sharing these images!!
I photographed this blue-eyed stud back when he was a newborn (which resulted in one of my all-time favorite photos of baby and mom gazing over the Boston skyline at dusk – head down memory lane here). When his mom contacted me to see if I would do his 6-month session in my new studio in Cambridge, I was hesitant to say yes. You see, my studio is very tiny and I rent it more as an office and client greeting/previewing space. Also, I have never been a studio photographer (meaning, I don’t own a fancy light kit or backdrop or props) – I primarily shoot on location. Still, I’ve invested quite a bit in my new space, and wasn’t ruling out the potential to photograph here when I chose my richly stained hardwood floors and a pretty pale grey paint. So why not take advantage? My clients helped me move my couch and chairs to clear a 5 foot area of blank floor and wall space. The window light is just gorgeous midday – bright but not too strong. We just sat Henry on the floor with a few of his favorite toys, sang songs and [Dad] made funny noises. Henry certainly enjoyed himself – as did I!
Needless to say, I am pretty pumped with how these turned out. Doesn’t hurt that my model looks like he stepped out of a Gerber commercial 🙂
