I first met Jennifer Goldfinger 5 years ago at a retreat for professional children's book writers, illustrators, and editors. Over the years since, I've gotten to spend time with her at kidlit-themed drink nights and various events throughout the metro-Boston area. I even played disc golf with her husband once, but I'll save that story for another day. Hint: I was waaaaay out of practice.
When Jennifer saw that I was looking for new clients, she reached out to me to do a headshot session with her. Yes! And when she discussed the shoot and she mentioned her studio space, I just knew that we had to do the shoot there. What an amazing space! I'm guessing that the building is at least 100 years old, as one of the doors had a date of 1895 on it . Lots of gorgeous brick and old windows throughout--there was so much natural light coming through. Although Jennifer's studio had just the one window, it let in such beautiful light. We decided to not use any alternative lighting sources and to just rely on the natural light.
The added benefit of doing the shoot at Jennifer's studio is that we were able to go beyond just the standard headshot, and we really got to do a wonderful shoot showing Jennifer at work in her space. I hope you enjoy the photos. It was such a fun shoot to do.
Thank you so much for visiting. And thank you Jennifer for inviting me to your studio.
