From Lindsey McFadden’s interview with Lissa Rivera, in which the artist discusses the process of creating a selection of photographs from her “Beautiful Boy” series:

[Regarding the photograph titled “Poolside, Family Home”]: “I wanted to take a minimalist photo that could be envisioned on the cover of a 1950s Vogue,” says Rivera. “He [her friend BJ who, over the course of the project, turned from her muse into her romantic partner] was very sweet and offered to get up at 5am to capture the best light, even though it was freezing cold out.”
