The creation of...

This year I made it a point to set some time away from commissioned shoots to bring some personal projects to life. What better occasion than the life changing event of expecting your first child!! I always found maternity shoots very cheesy but wanted to announce the news to family and friends with something unique. I'm a huge fan of renaissance art and the theme of creation immediately made me think of Michelangelo's masterpiece, which I based the concept on. I staged this self-portrait with my wife. I then painted the background in post-processes and added the cracks from the actual fresco.
