Flu Season is here!

dont-think-of-it-as-getting-a-flu-shot-think-of-1126Besides being David’s wife and business partner, Greta is also a nurse practitioner, with some words of advice for our friends and colleagues:

As Event Professionals, we work with the public, we travel, we push ourselves – and we get run-down. It’s a perfect storm for catching and spreading the flu. It’s no fun, and it’s costly too! If you’re pregnant, asthmatic, or diabetic, the flu is even more serious.

So, get vaccinated. The flu shot cannot give you the flu. Some people do get sick after getting the vaccine – but that’s because they get it during cold and flu season, and it can take 2 weeks for it to take effect, so, the sooner, the better! Available at your doctors office or at participating pharmacies.

Outdoor Family Portrait Session

I had the pleasure of photographing the Briggs family at Farm Pond, near my studio this past Saturday. This was a treat since I had photographed Rena and Erik’s engagement and wedding a few years ago. Now their family has grown and includes their beautiful daughter, Makenzie who was full of smiles. I was able to make some great, fun images of the family on a crisp, fall day.

Fall is a great season for an outdoor family portrait with the autumn colors and cooler weather. As much as I love working in the studio, I often suggest an outdoor location. It could be in your yard, a favorite family location like a park or the beach, the Boston Common, the Public Garden, or along the Charles. You can even bring your dog!

I like to capture the day and include a variety of images. Along with the posed family group photos, I enjoy capturing the fun family moments. A kiss on the cheek, your family walking together hand in hand and having fun together.

Call soon to schedule your family portrait session while fall foliage is at its peak.

Expanding Your Vision: Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone as a Photographer

In this episode, David and Elyssa discuss stepping out of their comfort zone by trying a new genre of photography and how this adds value to their everyday work.  

David has photographed the nude human form many times in workshops over the years, however this was Elyssa’s first time working in this genre. Elyssa talks about her experience and what she learned from feedback she received from the fine-art photography group she belongs to: New England Light Painters (website) in an image review night.

David’s ventured out on his own to photograph the human form in his studio as a way to practice.  He opens up and discusses these experiences and how he applies what he’s learned to his everyday work.

Tune in and learn David’s recommendations for photographing the human form. Step out of your comfort zone and photograph something completely different than your usual genre and expand your vision.
