Building Phases

Over the past few months I had the privilege of doing an ongoing shoot with a married couple whom I am friends with. They were in the process of building a home, and since the beginning I got to capture the transformation, one stage at a time! It was fun to see it come together, and it was also fun that family and friends could see the progress of the house being built. It was a great adventure, and I’m super happy for the couple and the BEAUtiful home they’ve recently moved into, despite the sometimes hectic schedule and early rising for some of the sessions 😛


As far as the composition goes, it was sometimes tricky to get the exact framing of the house and couple posed the same way to make the only difference in all the photos the structure of the house (and sometimes lighting, but that’s not controllable, which I had to accept). My technique was using a tripod and lining up one of the legs on a certain crack underneath the curb each time, and making sure my settings were the same. I also had to make sure my lens was zoomed in the same amount each time, so it required some memorization and accuracy on my part. Hard!


Thanks for the privilege, you guys!
