Good family and a beautiful location. What's not to love. This was shot in Sayen Gardens in Hamilton, NJ. A location I had never been to before but which I definitely plan on returning. There is beauty all around you from the moment you enter into this location. And my wonderful clients chose this location in part because it was where they were married! This family was awesome and a pleasure to work with. Their photos show that it was a great time and from the photos you wouldn't even be able to tell just how hot it was. Family shoots are always a great time to connect with your family and have some photos that can hang on your walls for years to come. They provide great memories and I wish this family many many great memories from this day!
Headshot sessions can be a lot of fun. First start by getting a dramatic lighting look across the face. Next have fun with backdrops. For this session, I chose to shoot with two backdrops. First a white with a bright flash on it intended to create a completely washed out bright backdrop. Once we got that shot, we swapped out to a grey backdrop. The couple of images in this post illustrate just a few things you can do with a grey backdrop. You can light that backdrop and depending on the color or shape of the light that you put on that backdrop, you can have some pretty intriguing results. Playing with light is so much fun and allows for almost infinite possibilities for backdrop with only one backdrop.
