Growing Up

Yesterday I could hold him in one arm, with room to spare, and now he’s off to school….

First Day

I had grandiose ideas for this picture involving a warm key, a yellowish rim, and a purple accent on the background (yellow and purple being the school’s colors). That would have required free time to figure out the lights on the night before his first day of school, and all you experienced parents know how well that went. The morning was a little overcast, so the ambient was easy to control, and the 60″ Softlighter made lovely light for a simple full-length portrait. John was extremely cooperative, too; we were done in less than 5 minutes.

Simple is good, especially when your emotions are running riot.
