Maternity Session with That Werks Photography @ Art Factory in Paterson, NJ

I’ve worked with Angela several times in the past for action packed fashion shoots. We slowed things down a few steps for this elegant maternity shoot at the Art Factory.

We hazed up one of my favorite rooms and got incredible shafts of light!

This was also a great opportunity for me to shoot on my Mamiya 645 Pro with Ilford HP5 Plus 400. The first image in the series below was done on that camera.

2021 is off to a great start and I hope yours is too.

Jess and Mike’s post-wedding portraits

Many things were different about photographing weddings this year. Mainly the lack of people at weddings and/or no wedding at all…just the couple. Luckily all of the couples I work with have been flexible in still making things happen in this alternate universe called 2020.

Jess and Mike joined us for a trip around Edison, NJ to do an extended portrait session. We found an exceptional location in Roosevelt Park (near Menlo Park Mall) and made the most of it.

Special thanks to David Alonso for second shooting this with me. He’s the nicest guy around!

Cleri Models – Ana G. Modeling at Art Factory Studios

Another successful shoot with Cleri Models at Art Factory Studios in Paterson, New Jersey. Ana has a dance background and although we wanted to focus our efforts elsewhere you can imagine that skillset came in handy. Particularly when we positioned her in a window with a 30 degree angle. She held the pose like Spider-Woman!

Shot on the Sony a7r II with a variety of lenses including the Sony 85mm f/1.8

McKenna for Cleri Models Photographed at Art Factory Studios

This shoot is from right around the time I started doing headshots in a new way. I typically stay away from flat lighting, but it works well for the modeling portfolio headshots because it shows off features without heavy shadowing and it minimizes skin irregularities. I particularly love the look with the red dress and red lipstick. Raen (hair/makeup) always does a great job of going over the wardrobe choices with me so that we’re on the same page.

McKenna did a great job, nailed all her looks and we made use of some spaces at the studio that hadn’t been used before.
