Behind the Lens: Jamaica Plain Portrait Shoot, Part I

As you know, I've been trying to build up my inchoate photography portfolio.  Even though I'm a total amateur with my camera, a few very generous and patient friends have volunteered to let me experiment on them take their portraits.


This past weekend, my friends A and G joined me for a frolic around our beautiful Jamaica Plain neighborhood.  Here are some of my favorites of A from this super fun shoot.


We started off on my street, which is so verdant and lovely this time of the year.


I particularly loved shooting A in the wild tangle of lavender in front of the Taylor House, a charming bed and breakfast.  Isn't she gorgeous?


We then traipsed over to Jamaica Pond, where we found my favorite photo prop ever -- a rowboat named "Cookie Ship."  A is an amazing baker, so it was total kismet that we happened upon this boat.


A beautiful summer day . . . my favorite neighborhood . . . a super photogenic subject . . . what more can a photographer want?
