On the Open Sea for Family Photos

Welcome to Keyport, New Jersey. Another new challenge came my way. How do you do family photos on a moving boat? First thing you do is make sure all your gear is safely tucked in place and only carry what you will be using.

Strobes were used for the portraits taken with the family sitting on the edge of the boat. Since I was not going to have an assistant, I brought along my Manfrotto light stands since they have an extremely wide footprint and wouldn’t tip off a rocking boat.

Once we got back to land, the remainder of the session was shot using natural light. I am particularly fond of the black and white shot of father, son and grandson next to the water. A simple summary of the three generations of Zushma photographed.

Fall Family Photos at Washington Rock

The Lee family (Another South Plainfield connection…that’s three South Plainfield-related shoots in 2 months) joined me for an hour of running around and playing in leaves on the top of Washington Rock on a beautiful fall day. The leaves dried off enough from the previous day of rain so we were able to toss them into the air without making a sloppy mess of their outfits. Their son has the best hair ever as you can see by the photos. It moves and sways with his relentless energy.

Toward the end of the shoot I had them gaze at the lookout point. He enjoyed throwing leaves over the edge. It was my job to bring him a new pile of leaves each time. Hilarious stuff that happens in front and behind the camera.
