Gisele, by Patrick Demarchelier

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Did anyone see Boston’s Gisele Bündchen in Vogue?

The April 2010 VOGUE had a story on Boston’s local fashion celebrity Gisele Bündchen (married to the Patriots’ Tom Brady). She was photographed by celebrated fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier. GORGEOUS photos. I am particularly stunned by his maternity portrait:

I’m also loving the baby portrait of Gisele with her son Benjamin Rein Brady:

“Where [Gisele] is going now is towards the reality of life and not its appearance.” – interviewer Joan Juliet Buck

I love this supermodel.

There’s just something about this image. I keep coming back to it.

I loved my time with Danielle and Matt and their sons. Naughty little Noah really wanted to be dancing instead of being photographed, and tiny Micah was pretty content to be snuggled and held and the center of attention. It was a hilarious hour of fun to photograph them together at their homestead in Campbell, California.

Here’s little Micah in the plum tree that was bursting in fruit!! In fact, my payment for the photos was partially in the bounty of this harvest, as well as some fresh eggs from the chickens and veggies from the garden.

What a great little family! I love how they have invested the effort to make their backyard into a mini farm and the boys are growing up watching their own food lifecycle.

the W family | a day in the life of…

Monday, July 12th, 2010

I really enjoyed my visit with the W family during my trip to Ohio. I wanted to document the family at this particular stage in their lives — settling into their new house and building up gardens… the young children and crazy dog, and the sense of pride at working hard and playing well.

I know you need formal portraits every once in awhile, but HOW FUN ARE THESE? I think everyone should have a batch of fun, realistic, and hilarious photos every year, because these are the candid-like photos your grandchildren are going to love someday- they show your sense of humor and personality. They show the lethargic way your daughter looks every afternoon (!!) or the 2 seconds of attention you have before your son zooms off on his next great adventure. Real life is beautiful and messy and HILARIOUS.
