Meghan Boyer: Every Two Weeks

Full disclosure… I adore Meghan Boyer.  Love her.  Love her work.  That’s all.

-Sandra

From Meghan:

“Once every 2 weeks or so, I get my boys up on stools and take their photo against a blank wall in my house. With the promise of lollipops, they sit still for a minute or two at most, but long enough to get a few shots of them individually, and sometimes if I’m lucky, together. They are 2 years apart and the dynamic of brothers is fun. Sometimes frustrating, but definitely fun. I like the simplicity of using a blank wall to remove distractions and only focus on them. And I shoot it on film because it adds to the authenticity. Raw and real. I’ve come to LOVE shooting these guys so much. They feeding my inspiration like nothing else.”

Emily Jackson, Cat and the Fiddle Photography: A Happy Little Family

There is just nothing better than a newborn baby!

-Sandra

From Emily:

“I loved every single second of this lifestyle newborn session in Washington DC and the resulting pictures take even my breath away.  I loved this shoot.  I loved meeting this beautiful, awesome, fun, happy little family <3 And oh my, their house was so pretty, and the light? A photographer’s dream!

Little Miss L. was a perfect baby for our session.  Even at six weeks old, she was a teeny tiny little thing :) but her sweet temperament radiated out of every pore.  I got more smiles from this little lady than any other newborn, ever! I loved that the clients requested all lifestyle images for their session, it made the whole thing very laid back.  Mom and dad have an amazing sense of style, and it was a blast to incorporate their beautiful decor with their beautiful newborn.

Equipment: Canon 5dMKiii and Canon 35L f/1.4″
