Better late than never, right? Heather and Jack are my subjects. I'll be working with them for the next several weeks, with the end goal of producing a photo story that is strong and intimate. For now at least, I'm not going to say much about the story itself, but I'll talk a bit about the shoot and plans from here.
It is great when a subject gets it. There is always a learning curve for both the photographer and subject when beginning a new story. That took no time at all here. This being my first time, I wanted to keep things natural and easy as everyone involved got use to me being there. The shoot went alright, although I had some flash battery issues - that will teach me to not double check my spares. I was around for some cleaning, some playtime, bedtime stories, some house maintenance, and an evening walk with the dogs. Most of these things have a larger significance than they sound, which I'll get into as time progresses.
I'll be heading back over there Saturday morning for a second shoot before Thanksgiving break, when Heather is heading out of town, and I will be heading home to Ohio for part of it. Shooting will resume Sunday or Monday after the break.
