Photographing The Symphony…

This is my talented photographer friend, Jessamyn, and her one month old, Symphony.

The hard part about being a photographer, is that you are never in any photographs.

Jessamyn can, and will, take thousands of amazing photos of her new little human.

But what she can’t do is photograph herself with her new little amazing human.

So I got to come and visit.

We cranked the heat and striped Miss Symphony down and we just played.

It was the perfect thing for a cold and rainy Monday.

And she was the perfect little model, which is a good thing, since this is only the beginning of her career.

Rolleiflex photos coming soon.

3 photographers playing in a photographer’s playground

Today was SO fun! Three photographers… Jude, Jessamyn and I decided to have a stock photography play date. We each picked a place, a theme for outfits, divided up the day and then we started shooting.

Jessamyn wanted a natural lifestyle photo shoot, so she picked a cafe where Jude and I laughed, talked and ate cupcakes (photo link soon to come.) Jude wanted a conceptual photo shoot, based around the green movement, so her shoot involved Jessamyn dressed head-to-toe in green clothes and playing in a green field.

And for my shoot, I chose complete and utter randomness: local salvage yard and sun-dresses.

There was no greater meaning or significance to my choice, other than I discovered this incredible place last week during my search for a bathtub, and I was completely amazed as I wandered through the 7 acres of rows and rows of forgotten metal ghosts.

The potential for fun was endless.

Luckily the owner was completely fine with us wandering and playing… his only rule was “no climbing” and that rule was only briefly bent, very slightly, once.

Funny enough, he didn’t tell us not to remove clothing, and the fabulous stack of bathtubs just happened to be tucked way far in the back of the 7 acres, so we were able to dive in deep when no one was looking. Yay for amazing and beautiful Jessamyn.

I have no idea if any of these photos are stock potential, but to be honest I can’t say that I care much if they are… I just loved the process so much and now I love the photos, so as far as I am concerned, the day was a fantastic success.
