Portraits for Atria Senior Living

I thought I would share with you some photos that aren't neccsarily weddings or documentary photography, but that I had fun shooting nonetheless.

A couple weeks back, I was given the opportunity to do shoot some portraits of a couple members living at the Sterling Glen of Roslyn. It was for an advertisement that Atria Senior Living is running now in local magazines in Roslyn, NY.

Armed with my camera and great sunlight from a window, we were able to do the photoshoot with minimal setup using only available light.

Because the people in the photos are not professional models, but just happy residents at the senior home, it was important to make them feel as comfortable as possible in order to get the candid shots needed for the ad. I asked one one of the directors to have a conversation with them off camera while I took the photos. It allowed them to relax and not mind a camera being pointed at them. And while they talked and laughed together, I sat waiting, ready to capture them at their most natural and genuine moments.

Here are some of my other favorites that didn't make the final ad.
