Rajan Family – Life Session Portraits
Mamatha & Ranjeet got married a couple of years ago and I was lucky enough to photograph their wedding in San Ramon. Fast forward to this spring and they had a son just a little bit after we had our own daughter. So it was a pleasure doing a life session focusing on their one year old son, Ishaan. We started off with some clean portraits with a background then moved onto their backyard and finally to Piedmont Park nearby. I’ve gotta say, photographing a child in his or her own environment is key to capturing great moments…
I went a bit more abstract with some of the editing. Since I was getting so many great expressions from Ishaan, I just had to go out on a limb with some of these photos.
The dreamy look in this next photo really just hit it for me. I knew it was out of focus when I took it, but I couldn’t let go of it. I’d say it’s my second favorite from the afternoon.
And what’s my fave shot from this session? The next photo! The sheer joy on Ishaan’s face with Ranjeet in the background is what these sessions are all about!
And finally…the happy family!
Thanks guys for inviting us to your home. We had a great time and hope to see a lot more of Ishaan as he grows into the rockstar he’s destined to be!
