Phyllis and I are first-time parents, and so the arrival of Phoebe was hectic to say the least. WE wanted to capture some moments from the first few weeks, but we weren’t too keen on going to a studio for a photo shoot. This is what sets JJ Photography apart, and why we were so happy with the shoot and with the beautiful photos of our family and of little Phoebe. JJ understood how the shoot would have to revolve around Phoebe’s feeding times, so he was very flexible. He quickly transformed our living room into a living studio and it was fun and relaxing as we waited for Phoebe to get a little sleepy so that she would be more ‘pliable’ for the photos. Phoebe was a little star to say the least, and JJ kept us all laughing with his warm sense of humour.
He was extremely patient as he led us throughout the shoot, explaining the ‘look’ or ‘feel’ that he was trying to evoke. It was amazing to see him get Phoebe to fall into relaxed poses and he made the whole photo shoot an engaging and enjoyable experience. The resulting photos were stunning. Gorgeous black-and-whites, warm colour shots that were bathed in perfect light and shadow. We were delighted! We have a keepsake that perfectly captures her first few weeks.
