For me Christmas came early this year, December 6th to be precise. That’s when the much anticipated arrival of these two treasures finally came and they did not disappoint. I’d had ideas for this shoot for months some even involved perfecting my carpentry skills and building a sleigh as you’ll see in the Christmas portion of their shoot…luckily when my woodworking skills failed to deliver, my father’s didn’t and I was bailed out and given the perfect Santa sleigh for his exhausted reindeer to nap in.
This shoot was amazing. For many reasons. One, I get this high from seeing images that have only existed in my mind then exist in digital print form for the world to see. So the pay off of seeing the perfect antler looking twigs I hunter for forever resting on the heads of these two sweeties was priceless. Two, you may notice how smiley these guys are when they’re together. That was NOT photoshop! The best way we could calm Berkeley down when she wasn’t too excited about having her picture taken was to lay her brother Chase down next to her. Without fail, each time they were placed close enough to cuddle they were so calm, peaceful, and happy. It was an amazing and beautiful beautiful experience for me. Thanks so much to Elisa & Danny for letting me practically move in for a day and put their newborns in suitcases, pea pods, suspenders, and even antlers. You’re the best!
