Over the last couple years I have had the chance to photograph some younger subjects than I had in the past. This cutie is Iris who I photographed every 3 months over her first year. Babies grow so much in their first year, it was great to capture a portrait of her every 3 months to document her development. I love these portraits and have happily found cool and stylish parents have cool and stylish kids!
The great team behind Cats Like Us posed with their beloved cats for this holiday card that went out to their customers and vendors. They ended up printing a postcard which is a great marketing option as it means less postage and it can double as a flyer for promotion and networking. I love when companies take a personal and stylized approach to holiday cards. There is little point to sending out boring pre-made cards, they are forgotten almost instantly. But add a little creativity to your holiday card and it is a highly enjoyed and sincere thank you to clients and business associates.
I took this shot of Nero Bellum of Psyclon Nine for Auxiliary Magazine’s 7 Deadly Questions interview series. This was a challenging shoot as they were only in town for one day I met them at the venue Broadway Joe’s in Buffalo to get a couple quick shots before their show. It is a small punky dive type venue and we shot this in the back patio area. You can see this photo in the October/November 2013 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine.
The first time I shot Melanie was for one of my undergraduate thesis photo series, my “Housewife Series” which you can view at jennifer-link.com in my “projects” portfolio, since then I have worked with her many times! I took this portrait last year and finally with the launch of my blog am getting the chance to show it off.
Last year I worked with retro inspired clothing boutique Cats Like Us to shoot this series of photographs for new advertisements and promo materials. Cats Like Us has a brick and mortar shop in Tonawanda, New York a suburb of Buffalo and a successful website shop. Every time we shoot a new series of advertising photos we aim to get a good variety of shots so they have several options for printed postcards and flyers, magazine and event program advertisements, and online advertisements. The lovely and talented shop owner Julie Ann, one half of the great duo behind this boutique, is the face of their company and models the fun wears they sell.
