Family Portraits: Bizier Family

 

I always love getting the chance to take family shots. It’s always a pleasure meeting a happy, smiling baby. Mason Bizier was no different! He was such a cool customer. His dad, Mike, was well prepared for the shoot, with fantastic props. Check out this nameplate – it’s twice the size of Mason!bizier 3

 

I LOVE this shot – makes me snicker every time. A baby in sunglasses is always funny (in a cute way) in my book.bizier 2

And one last shot of Mason fitting right in with his favorite toys, who just so happen to be his same size. Thanks Mason and Mike for a fun afternoon!

Family Portraits: Pop-Up Studio Debut

What a fun an exciting day today was.  It was the culmination of a lot of thought and some much needed motivation.  A few weeks ago I was lamenting because I didn’t have studio space.  Not that I do a lot of studio-style portraiture, as I much prefer location shooting, but there are just some things that work best under controlled conditions.  After doing some research, I discovered the Waltham Mills Artist Association.  An old factory in downtown Waltham had been converted to artist lofts and they look incredible.  I met fellow photographer Jon Fischer, who gave me a tour of his spot.  Alas, the studios were for full-time artists, not for short-term rentals.

The WMAA got my mind working though.  I began looking for an alternative. If I couldn’t rent a studio, how could I make my own?  I already had the lighting from my work as a wedding photographer.  I just needed the space.  Then, by coincidence, I found the perfect spot.

When I lived in Boston, I became a member of the Watertown VFW simply because it was easy to get to from my Concord office at the time.  When I moved to Waltham, visits became less convenient.  So last Sunday I made the switch, joining Post 10334 in North Waltham.  Not only was I impressed by the folks I met, but the hall was ideal from a photographic perspective.  Clean white walls, high ceilings, hardwood floors and a lot of natural light.  It was perfect.  A week later and a $1200 equipment purchase from Hunt’s we have a new pop-up studio set and a bunch of adorable munchkins on film.

Family Portraits: Last Family

What is better than hanging out with your family on the beach as the sun sets, watching your adorable child play in the sand?  For a parent, I imagine it doesn’t get better.

Earlier in the year, I donated a photography session for a cystic fibrosis fundraiser.  If you remember, I did a story about a man with cystic fibrosis and his mother’s efforts to raise money a few years ago in Not Without Hoop.  It’s a cause worth supporting.  The winners were the Last Family, who took the opportunity to shoot at Rexhame Beach in Marshfield, MA.  It was a hot summer day, but we made the best of it and got some great shots!

Don’t forget to check out our last family photo session with the Goodwin Family!

Baby Vivien

The highlight of last weekend was shooting little Vivien in South Boston.  She was an angel, and wouldn’t take her eyes off the the camera.  Nothing special.  No holiday theme.  Her parents just wanted some photos of her in their home, as they see her and love her.
