My Night in Nine Matt Barnes, Photographer The Drake Hotel


We invited award-winning photographer Matt Barnes to stay a night at The Drake Hotel and document his time with nine photos for our ongoing My Night In Nine series.

While many would likely spend an evening at a hotel as a means of reprieve, Matt and his wife (the lovely songstress Shelley Hayes) packed up the fam and enjoyed an out-of-the-ordinary evening of fun in one of our Crash Pads with their adorable daughters, two-year-old Goldie and three-month-old Coco.

Unlike past subjects who focused their lens on the wilder side of Drake life, Matt captured the magic in the quiet moments, the result being the most beautiful family photo session to ever take place around here.
