I was hired by The Combs to do a photo shoot of their three boys, ages 5, 3, and 1. The Combs wanted this shoot to focus primarily on the children with candid images of them playing outside in their backyard, along with a few traditional portraits (but only a few!). The shoot took place on a crisp, Autumn day in October. Dad was away at work during the majority of the shoot.
Their home, located in a beautiful rural area just outside of Boston, had a large backyard complete with a vegetable garden, a tree swing, some woods...and chickens! Such a perfect space for three little boys to run around and play in.
These brothers were the sweetest. They warmed to me quickly, which warmed my heart.
I began the shoot with some quick portraits of the two older brothers while the little one was being woken up from his nap.
The littlest brother and Mom joined us...
The chickens came out to play.
The sweet middle brother was very excited to show me the fresh-laid eggs.
The tree swing!
He called Mom over to push him on the swing...
A boy and his rock collection.
And the littlest brother...
These shoots are all about the kiddos...but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to do a quick portrait of the loving parents together.
*Photo geek notes: This entire shoot was done with my stealthy little Fujifilm XE-2 and my 23mm 1.4 and 56mm 1.2 lenses. Some images were shot using only available light and some were lit.
