Just before Christmas, I met Natasha and Eric, and their seven month old baby Leif, for a portrait session at their home outside of Nevada City. They have a cute little cabin and it was all warm and toasty inside. We had actually tried to get together the week earlier, but torrential downpours and loss of electricity forced moving the date back. The day we did meet was actually quite lovely, and we were able to brave the cold, even with little Leif, for a short bit to also get some natural light portraits.
Leif is clearly a happy baby. At first though, he wasn’t too sure of me… what was I doing there with all this stuff? But getting a little goofy, and even trying to sing (which I do rather poorly) seemed to do the trick and we were able to get a few smiles
So here are some of the favorites from the day (a mixed photo session, part studio, part outdoors/natural light):
Have I mentioned before how I love black and white portraits
