When I am asked to photograph someone I feel privileged and honored that someone trusts me to capture their essence and personality. When Eric Burton, a local musician called me last week to photograph him and his daughter and also him for his new CD Cover I was excited and nervous!
This is my second time photographing them and Hope is the best subject. She is adorable, funny and is a beautiful person. Everyone who comes in contact with her has an instant smile. And the bond that she has with her Daddy is undeniable. I love the way she grips on to her dad any time she is near him and the love in his eyes is tangible when he looks at her. How could I not capture that? Then I start to think, what if I don’t capture it? Then I feel sick and wonder what the heck I am doing! OK, then I breath and remember this is what I love and they trust me.
So here is what I captured of them………….Full Session can be viewed HERE:
Then it was on to that CD Cover and I had a moment of panic when he said "You are the photographer, what do you think?". Think! Oh man, no one told me I had to think on this job. But once we got into it there was no need to think. He is a dynamic, talented and modest guy who was easy to photograph and is reluctantly letting me share 10 of my favorite shots:
Check out his Music HERE! He has a new CD in the works.
Thank you Eric and Hope! I told Eric when he makes the big time he cannot forget the little people………..
