victoria + victor | family



I’ve known Victoria since middle school, so Iwas delighted when she contacted me about shooting photos of her and her son in recognition of his first year of life. For the past year, I had been able to watch him grown through the many photos Vicki posted of him on her Instagram account. I finally got to meet him a week before the shoot, at our consultation. In the week between us having a consultation and the day of the shoot, Victor started walking.

It was a hot, humid day, so we set the shoot for late afternoon. I was just praying that it didn’t rain and we would be forced to reschedule. Fortunately, the weather cooperated. The afternoon light was lovely, and Victor was a trooper. I know the hot temps and his teething were a bother to him, so with patience and lots of kisses of encouragement from his mother, we created some beautiful shots of the two of them.

We lead such busy lives, but it’s so important to take the time to document these stages of a child’s life. They are so fleeting, and kids grow so fast. You look back and wonder what happened to that chubby little person that was once so helpless. I’m so honored to be chosen to document this special time in a family’s life.

Happy Monday!

This was an interesting shoot that came about from a chance conversation and a series of text messages, culminating in a meet up at Target as I gathered supplies to construct the backdrop.

I mean, I figured it would work, but I’m still amazed at the results from putting together several pieces of PVC pipe (purchased from Lowe’s) and and draping the frame with a white sheet.

We shot outdoors in my front yard, under the shade of a large oak, and these shots are what came out. Also, Brendan had a clear vision of what he wanted the shots to look like, and I was tasked with trying to capture his vision and giving a little direction of my own. I have to thank our mutual friend Steven for being a great impromptu assistant, holding up the backdrop without one complaint.

Honestly, I’m getting seriousĀ Tuxedo Mask vibes with this outfit, but it definitely works.
