Capturing The First Year

capturing the first year {nine months}


Phew! I’m not gonna lie, the past month has been k-razy! Somewhere along the road we thought it would be a good idea to move house ;-)

Thinking ahead, I made sure I didn’t pack my camera, but I DID pack my imac and didn’t have a work station for a short while as well as I cannot stand to work in chaos! Tidy house = tidy mind.  I’m continuing to desperately catch up with life after being somewhat off the grid for a while.

As much as I would like to have the nursery perfectly set up and decorated to shoot in, this is not going to happen any time soon so a little improvisation is needed. Packing boxes are our life right now and an experience in Mattheus’ first year to remember.

He enjoyed exploring through the boxes in the garage and I was reminded of how amazing the light can be when the garage door is open. You instantly have this incredible open shade that produces a well lit subject and sparkling eyes. Read more here for getting beautifully tack sharp eyes using open shade. A five minute photo session can go a long way if you’re inspired by the light around you.
