This has been a very exciting week for me. I was asked to photograph the first babies born at the new Hamot Women’s Hospital – truely an honor! And even more exciting is that my images will be used in the ourdoor campaign, which means… Billboards!
I started on Monday with the very first baby born – an adorable little girl, and worked through Wednesday photographing the next 10. I love to photograph newborns, so this was an extra treat for me – these were NEWborns. And the new hospital – gorgeous doesn’t do it justice. It really is something. Needless to say, I was living the dream.
Thursday morning was a rough one for me – it started with a call to AAA for a dead battery and meant being a half hour late for everything after that. So finally after dropping my daughter off at school, on my way back to Erie at about the 26th St. exit, I see it – the Billboard!! My photograph way up there, larger than life! So Thursday turned out to be a good day.
I just want to say that I have followed the Hamot Women’s Hospital campaign from the beginning and have really been impressed. I love the concept, the artwork, and the language used – I really have enjoyed it. For those who don’t know, Tungsten Creative Group are the clever people behind it and I was absolutely delighted to be able to play a small role.
So… here is the image of the first pretty little girl born at Hamot Women’s Hospital
and here is the billboard on I79 at the 26th St exit
Excellent way to begin 2011 – Happy New Year, everyone!
