Photoshoot with Emerson

I had wanted to meet Emerson well before he was even named. Mike and Caroline are close friends from Seattle and I missed them both dearly after departing from the Pacific Northwest. Emerson came into their lives late last year and I have had such a lovely time with the whole family since returning a couple weeks back. Here are several captures from our time at the park recently while testing out the (new to me) Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lens. What a gem! Perfect for close to semi-close portraits. I am a huge fan of prime lenses and have been using them primarily for photoshoots and special events for several years. This Sigma has already landed in the "top shelf" in my book. Behind-the-scene shots by Caroline. ;)
