When I do a portrait I want to know about the person. I learned the importance of this while interning with the late, great Arnold Newman. Julia is a bookworm! She loves to read, especially Harry Potter, and spends a lot of time at the library. So for her shoot we started at the library, then spent some time around the family home. She was a natural in front of the camera and I know she is going to have an amazing bat mitzvah.
Here are just a few from the day.
Mazel Tov Julia!
On the stairwell of the newton library
Finding good details is so cool. I love this shot of her hands with the textured wall.
The stairwell in the family home had such amazing natural light.
The one above and the one below were taken on the dinning room table. I just loved the reflection and the curtains lit from the sun outside.
