It was a crisp Mid-September Saturday morning and we chose the beautiful setting of the North Bridge in Concord to capture these moments for Jacob and Benjamin Dretler. Both have such a sweet and cheeky nature and even though it was early in the morning and the sun hadn’t been up long the boys were full of energy and we pretty much had the whole area to enjoy a lovely walk around the riverside and bridge. The light was great so we got straight into the photo session.
The boys listened and co-operated for the shoot and we were able to mix it up and give them both a rest from being photographed while I focused on the other.
Benjamin had a cast put on his arm just a few days before the shoot but nothing stopped him from having fun and running around. He’s clearly made of tough stuff and I couldn’t believe it when I heard from his mommy that he broke his other arm just a few days after these pictures were taken! Bless him!
I like to capture as many natural, candid and fun photos during a shoot because it’s those moments that we look back on and remember how we were. I don’t believe in staging and posing throughout the whole session. It can be hard work and boring for anyone if all they are asked to do is look into the camera and smile for an hour or more.
The boys did great from start to finish in this early morning shoot and I was honored to have been picked to take their photos, especially as their mommy is also a very talented, professional photographer. They took advantage of my Fall 2016 offer, where I included 50 personalized Holiday Cards, which have already been printed and delivered… They turned out great!
