A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend one of Jen Fariello and Robert Radifera’s Art of Photography workshops hosted here in Charlottesville. Jen and Robert are both AWESOME photographers here in town and they had a wealth of knowledge to share with us. I also really enjoyed meeting some other photographers in the area; there is just a ton of talent and creativity in this town! However, for me, the highlight of the morning was the arrival of our model, 7 month old Cooper. I had so much fun with this little man. I’m not sure he knew what to do with himself though. At any given moment he had about ten different cameras pointed at him, and behind each one of those cameras, a woman who would have taken this little guy home in a second!
This first series was taken inside a studio. It was my first time doing a shoot with studio lighting, so I was definitely anxious to see how they’d turn out. In the past, I have been intimidated by the studio set-up, but I must admit, I really enjoyed the experience and I like the results!
Oops. Excuse me.
Then Jen brought out a basket and a blanket and we put Cooper inside. Here’s what I got…
Once Cooper started to get bored in the studio, we brought him out to the hallway with some great window lighting. We all got down on the floor and started shooting away.
Love his expression on these next two….
Cooper’s mom had this sweet Land’s End bag with his name on it. We decided we’d stick him in it and see what we could get. I love this next series.
Thanks so much for dropping by the blog again! March has definitely been the month for babies. Check back soon for a preview of a beautiful, artsy Charlottesville wedding!
