I love when clients come to me with ideas, moodboards, or location recommendations, which I don’t get enough of. So when the Murdock family came to me and requested portraits at the Mint Museum, I was excited because I had never photographed there before. These ideas sometimes present minor challenges – and it’s typically that a client’s vision isn’t always simple or ideal. Luckily, I’ve worked under enough diverse conditions now that I can improvise and bring these visions to reality. Shooting indoors meant that I wouldn’t get any natural light, but the art pieces and structures added an interesting element to the background. Once we moved outside, I had more light to work with and was able to create portraits that embodied that cozy, fall feeling. The Murdock family was such a joy to work with and were such a photogenic group, which you can see for yourself below.
