Matt & Terra's Xmas Baby Shoot

Hello 2019!

I’m just getting back into the groove of blogging. I’ll start this year off with last months xmas baby shoot. I photographed Natalia shortly after she was born at my home studio earlier last year and had a pleasure documenting her at such a special time during the holidays. As someone who doesn’t have any kids at the moment, it’s really special to get a backseat into some peoples lives as they being their next chapters in life as parents. On a special note, this was my first shoot using the new mirrorless Nikon S7. I’m loving the results so far. Vibrant colors and unique sharpness. I hope to share more photos from the new camera in the near future. Enjoy!

SCHREINER | West Virginia Sessions

I'm not sure if any of my followers know this, but before I got into working as a photographer, I was a drummer in the Washington DC area. Back in the fall of 2017, I joined a band called Schreiner. After playing a couple of shows together, we decided on the idea of renting out an AirB&B in West Virginia. This retreat gave us an opportunity to better know each other and collectively throw creative ideas out on the table to record and store for later development. 

We spent two full days jamming out and recording new ideas. From those days, six original tunes were brought to life. The other time was used to relax and socialize. The weather was cold and icy for the first part of the retreat. A sheet of ice covered the driveway, so there was no going anywhere anyway. Mornings were spent enjoying coffee, listening to music, and chowing down on some eggs and bacon. Afternoons were the most productive parts of the days, and we entertained ourselves in the evenings with dinner and reflections on our daily accomplishments (with some booze for encouragement). 

I'm excited to share the results of our material later in the year. Our album should be fully recorded and available for purchase in the fall of 2018. Enjoy!
