Here is another fun family photo session I shot with the Hasselblad X1D. Ethan was full of energy during our shoot. He kept Lori and Gene on their toes by running from place to place. Even though its August somehow the leaves are falling from the trees and are already changing colors. I had Ethan lay on his back next to his daddy and capture this precious photo. #bradbarnwellphotography #family #familyphotography #familyportrait #almostfall #fallfeels #hasselblad #x1d #hasselbladx1d #mediumformat #smile #love #familyoutings #frederickphotographer #loveyourjob #profotousa #profoto #profotob1

I was very happy that the weekend I had the Hasselblad X1D lined up with Maebree's 17 month photo. I don't normally post images of my wife nursing but breastfeeding is quite beautiful especially in this setting. #bradbarnwellphotography #family #love #hasselblad #x1d #x1d50c #mediumformat #mirrorless #frederickphotographer #normalizebreastfeeding #lifemoments #breastfeedingphotography #wildflowers #redheads #gingerbabies #loveyourjob #blueeyes #pebbles #brotherandsister

I had the amazing privilege this weekend to get my hands on this beautiful camera. The Hasselblad X1d-50c produces such amazing quality images. I wanted to shoot as much as I could and as many different things as possible. I started off by shooting in the studio. This week I will post samples from all my sessions with this top of the line camera. Thank you @mbsdirect for the opportunity! #bradbarnwellphotography #inthestudio #hasselblad #x1d #x1d50c #mediumformat #mirrorless #profoto #profotob1 #profotousa #greatful #loveyourjob #creativelighting #celebratelight #frederickphotographer

I don't normally post behind the scene images or before and after photos but looking at this image today and I loved how the final product turned out. When scouting locations near the venue I saw this staircase which was surrounded by lush greenery. With Steve and Sarah both wearing beautiful colors on their wedding day I wanted to make the happy couple standout. So I added a Profoto B1 to the right of the couple to make them pop but leaving the setting as is. In post I removed the B1 from the shot and got rid graffiti behind the couple so the focus is on the couple and not the busy background. What do you think of my 1st before and after posting? Would you like to see more? #bradbarnwellphotography #beforeandafter #weddingday #weddingportrait #wedding #weddingphotography #coupleportrait #love #editing #workflow #famousbtsmag #famousbtsmagazine #nikon #profoto #profotousa #frederickphotographer #phillyweddingphotographer #loveyourjob

Zack hired me as a gift to his wife who is expecting their 2nd child this winter. He had an idea of taking photos at the place it all started at, their wedding venue. Kendall was absolutely stunning! #bradbarnwellphotography #maternityshoot #expecting #love #bellybump #maternityphotography #maternitydress #maternity #details #whereitallstarted #nikon #mamasboy #soontobeafamilyof4 #editorial #style #frederickphotographer #profotousa #profoto #creativelighting #celebratelight #loveyourjob

There is always something a bit magical when a newborn smiles during a photo session. The smile is a bit infectious with everyone in the family including Henry's big sister! #bradbarnwellphotography #family #love #familyof4 #newborn #newbornphotography #cheese #smile #smilingismyfavorite #happyfamily #frederickphotographer #baltimorephotographer #nikon #profoto #profotousa #loveyourjob

I for some reason sit on so many photos and never share them… I am not sure why. Here are a couple images from Jas and Amy's Sangeet Party. I love the colors!!! #bradbarnwellphotography #sangeet #love #engagementparty #vibrant #colorful #happiness #nikon
