an afternoon with her little boy

And now for something a little different. I rarely do this sort of thing… People ask me all the time to come take family pictures (or weddings and these sorts of things) — I always regretfully say NO because, well, I never really have a great excuse other than it takes too much energy to do something interesting. Also, sometimes I pretend to be too busy like George in that one episode of Seinfeld.

So I had an idea to make something unique and vintage and the muse here was up for it… and she had similar ideas around capturing some moments with her little boy. I’m happy with how these things are turning out…

    Awsome, nothing less than awsome. Love the mood and the texture. I get the impression that you took picture of memories or ghost.

  • Thank you all – I’m glad you like them too… interesting charles yes a ghost – reeling in you now.

  • Thanks Sophia… I spent a long time on these to try to reach something I had locked away in my head… after many mistakes and missteps, I finally put together a frightening series of steps to create this look.
