“Use me as your vessel, I want to shine like the candle. Shine like the burning candle in the room.” Leon Bridges
I feel really gushy about these intimate photos of the Dany family. Jack Patrick Dany came into the world just a few weeks ago, and we shot these on his 2 week anniversary. We love the idea of making portraits in the home. These are the real and authentic spots where a million of these new experiences will occur. These are probably some of the most genuine photos we have made, Sarah and Garrison didn’t even know they were going to be included in the shots. The afternoon was ruled by Jack. If he didn’t like the setup, we moved on. These guys are already so inspiring as new parents. I wanted to show the warmth that can be felt in this home, while still exhibiting that “GQSwagBaby” vibe. I wanted the photos to feel tangible, and soft. Sarah Dany is pretty incredible. Every time I see her she looks more beautiful. Garrison is always up for whatever we have on the brain. He is deliberate with his own style choices and has such love cascading into this new child. Jack has all of those classic irresistible qualities that each newborn possesses: the teeny fingernails and wiry digits with those enormous yawns and slow stares. But he has something extra too. I think it’s the grace of something much older than Jack. We can’t wait to shoot with this family again, but until then..
Here are a few of my favorites:
