introducing… zach!

Portraiture

Hi everyone,

It’s been a fun few days since we got back from vacation, but I have been itching to get out and shoot again. The crazy weather has forced a number of postponements, so I was really pleased that Wednesday’s forecasted storms held off in order to be able to go and meet up with Zach and his fantastic Mum and Dad, Yvonne and Scott. We got some really nice shots outside in their lovely big garden as well as in and around the home. Zach was really chilled out the whole time and only resorted to hinting politely when he needed his nappy changed or another feed. I am on a roll with my newborns!

Anyway, one of the things that struck me straightaway about Zach was what fab big blue eyes he has. Thanks to Mum and Dad getting stuck in and helping out, we got him to look at the camera enough to catch them doing their thing and sparkling for us a bit. Mum had also lined up a great selection of outfits (including the Colts onesie and related accoutrements), so we got some great shots across the board.

For my fellow geeks out there, the camera used for this shoot was a Canon EOS 50D with a range of lenses (35 f/2, 50 f/1.4, 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/4 IS).

one sunday in spring…
Last Sunday, I took a trip over to my old stamping grounds in Cincinnati to hang out with some old friends in Ault Park. It was a perfect evening with some gorgeous light from the setting sun catching the blossom. All in all, great lighting, lovely scenery and cool subjects = a recipe for success.     PS - Happy Birthday Drew! 4 today!

Back in early October, I got the chance to hang out with Max and take his senior pictures for him. It was a really nice evening and I had scouted out a few locations for us to hit up, so we headed out and got the job done. There are some great old abandoned redbrick warehouses out on 16th Street in Indianapolis, right by the railway on what is now the Monon Trail. We took a few pictures there and in the playing fields next door before heading downtown to the area by Meridian and South by the Slippery Noodle and then across to Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts, and then back again to the tunnels under the railway there. Max was typically ...

a star is born…
This past weekend, I got the chance to go and hang out with this little stunner. She was certainly a natural in front of the camera, which certainly made my life a lot easier. In fact, the only problem I really had was to get her to stop posing! A career in show business beckons I feel!
