We’ve had a new addition to the Voland clan. Well, about seven months ago we had a new addition. This is Jude. He is the latest of four amazing nephews that I get the privilege of having in my life.
Last Friday, I took my camera and some lights and made some photographs with this little guy and his momma, my sister-in-law Brooke.
He’s made quite the entrance. For a few months, I could swear that he saved up all his tears for when he came over to visit. It was very rough to watch the poor guy crying and not be able to do anything about it. That’s all changed, seemingly overnight. I think he just wanted to make sure we all knew he was here.
The day I took these photographs, he was all smiles. Brooke was open to any ideas I had, so we had fun with it. She’s a born creative, and between the two of us I think we created some great images.
The shoot took about two hours, but it felt like it was over in no time. We didn’t rush things and I love working like that. It gives the images time to develop in my mind and the talent always performs better when they can relax for a minute or two.
Hope all is well.
