A Family Portrait on the Cape

Monday, March 5th, 2012

The snow outside my studio window is sticking to the branches and it definitely looks like winter is still here. I thought it appropriate to warm us all by posting a few images from a summer portrait session Linda and I did down in Mashpee on Cape Cod. A lush and woodsy setting at Gabby, Zack, Deanna, Frank and beloved pet Chloe’s home served as a vibrant setting for the first part of our photographic session. And then, how wonderful to have a sandy stretch of beach just down the road where our afternoon of image making continued. Sun, sand, sea grass and surf ! We had a fun session with this wonderful family…kids really enjoying themselves and very enthusiastic mom and dad. Linda and I headed over to Mashpee Commons for a delicious dinner and then back home. A delight to revisit such a glorious day!!

Check out this adorable, little boy with a breathtakingly expressive face. Grady has riveting eyes, an endearing smile, irresistible curls and the cutest little personality. He was such a fun subject to photograph.

We work to portray the magic of the captivating and engaging little people who arrive at our studio. We think we have the greatest job. We feel so lucky!!

The Putnam Cousins

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

The grounds of their grandparents home, on a glistening summer day, was the setting for this portrait session of cousins Dana, Ben and Ari. I had the pleasure, some years ago, of photographing high school senior portraits for their mothers and also a wedding. It’s always gratifying to be asked to periodically preserve moments in time for families and a delight to maintain these connections over lifetimes.

Noor

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

When you meet Noor you are immediately struck by her beautiful and captivating eyes. Noor is training in classical vocal performance and came to me for head shots and other images she could use for concert publicity. While Noor is incredibly kind, gentle and sweet, she also has a strength and composure that I hoped to capture. These qualities and her natural charisma and warmth translated effortlessly into the images. Noor has had a truly global life, living in numerous countries before going to school in the United States. We talked about her wide-ranging experiences and passion for music during the photo shoot. The day was beautiful, so after taking a number of photographs in my studio we went out and explored various locations.

For Mark

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

There are often unanticipated rewards to being a photographer. Last week Christine came to my studio with her 18 month old son Michael. Christine wanted a portrait of the two of them for her husband Mark, who is in the Army and has been stationed in Afghanistan since the fall. I have a long history with this family. I photographed Christine and each of her three wonderful sisters when they were 18 months old, each when they made their first communions, then again when they were high school seniors. The tradition continues now with 18 month old Michael. I had so much fun photographing him. He was into the mechanics of my camera and managed to change the focusing point with his little but able fingers. Recently, Christine and her mother came back to the studio to view the photographs. While image choices were being discussed, I thought wouldn’t it be great to send Mark a little slide show of some of their favorites. With a little effort here in my studio a dad who is 6500 miles from home gets a glimpse of his wife and his ever growing son; and I hope that it delivers a lot of joy too.

David

Photographing people is great fun. In a short period of time you meet, get to know and ultimately have the honor and responsibility of portraying a dimension of that person. David was an easy subject to photograph. He had an engaging personality. Within a few minutes I learned that he was once a CFO of my favorite candy company. A wonderful conversation followed about some of the candies I enjoyed growing up.
