Photo Shoot With Christopher Briscoe

My mother came to Ashland for a visit. Though the rapist at large has everyone in town on high alert and high worry, I always appreciate Ashland when we have visitors. We all enjoyed the mild weather, walking in the mountains above town, an outing to Jacksonville where we hiked on the trails behind the Britt festival grounds and ate Mexican food at La Fiesta, and swimming with the kids at the Stratford Inn.

On Monday we did something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: a family photo session with Christopher Briscoe.

Christopher Briscoe is a well-known photographer. I met him when my publisher hired him to do the photos for my most recent book, THE BABY BONDING BOOK FOR DADS, co-written by my husband, James di Properzio.

The shoot took about an hour and fifteen minutes from start to finish and even the baby cooperated. Chris is an amazing photographer. He has a way with children and was able to get some gorgeous images.

He’s also a good businessman. As we were leaving he said, “give me a week to get these on the Web.” Then he called me back in the afternoon to tell me the pictures were ready to view, and that he knew my mom was leaving town and wanted us to have a chance to look at them together.

It’s brilliant to underpromise and overdeliver, which is what Chris was doing. It impresses the hell out of your clients.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the photos Chris took on Monday of our family:

    Great photos! I had already admired that superb shot of Leone, showing off her curiosity about life with charm and dignified restraint. On your Mothering blog, I think?
