Meet Sloane Valdes Weiner. She is beautiful, cool and loves to snuggle and smile. Sloane is one lucky little girl. She has two moms and a big sister with a great imagination. I love photographing a family that forgets I am even there and enjoys the process. The Valdes-Weiner family did exactly that. Sure, they obliged as I asked them to move Sloane’s head up or down, but mostly they were relaxed and totally into expressing their family love. I think Mica (Sloane’s big sister) was my absolute favorite part of the shoot. Not only was she a wonderful assistant, she did it dressed up like a cowgirl. Kudos to moms for letting Mica be exactly who she is, and creating an awesome memory. Congratulations Sandy and Michelle! I hope to photograph you all again soon.
Can you say beautiful? It was nearly impossible to take an unflattering headshot of the gorgeous woman. Jackie is a portrait photographer’s dream come true. The camera just loves her intense brown eyes and her natural flawlessness. She is an incredibly talented actor whom I met through The Actor’s Lab. I like to photograph actors because they are so expressive and usually unafraid of the camera. I loved photographing Jackie because she was so willing to be herself and allowed me to capture her without any veils. She also takes a great silly shot, which always makes me laugh.
I also LOVE that midway through our session it started torain. Luckily I was photographing her in NoDa, so we went into Growlers for a delicious beer while we waited for the sprinkling to stop.
I’ve photographed a fair amount of babies but I have never met a newborn that was as alert, active and curious as Bodhi. This little baby was a joy to photograph because he had so many expressions. I was also impressed by his older sister, Lucy, the Weimaraner/Chocolate Lab mix. She was incredibly gentle with the family’s new addition and was always ready to stand in whenever I needed a model.
Christy and Napoleon, I loved capturing your beautiful family with my lens. Congratulations and I hope you get a nap in soon …
Vincent III was born on 11-5-12. Two months later I had the pleasure of photographing this precious baby boy and his incredibly loving parents, LaToya and Vincent Jr. Baby Vincent was the most laid back infant I have ever photographed—putting up with all the wardrobe changes and silly positions. He did not fuss until the very end. Even then, it only lasted about one minute—just long enough for me to snap the last shot. Thank you LaToya and Vincent for a wonderful afternoon and congratulations on the beautiful addition to your family.
