introducing… zach!


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).

an afternoon at katie’s…
OK, so this past weekend was a bit of a bust weather-wise. Luckily for me, I got a concentrated blast of sunshine on Saturday afternoon in the form of Katie and her family. Remind me to take my shades next time I go to visit with Olivia and Mayson. What a couple of little characters! As you can see below, the pics turned out great. I have to say a big thanks to Katie and BJ for helping out with the candy and bribery. Believe it or not, Olivia would not sit still for long, so I needed all the help I could get! Thanks too to Mayson for putting up with my lame jokes and humouring me when she was well past her "done" stage. Have a great wee ...
abbi hits 18 months
Back when I got organised and officially kicked off "Joe Payne Photography", I was really pleased to get an email from Ashley, whose daughter Abbi used to be in the same group at daycare as Charlotte. Abbi recently turned 18 months, so we spent an hour early on Sunday morning walking around Zionsville. It was probably the hottest day I have ever had to work in, but it was a gorgeous morning and Abbi did brilliantly despite the heat. I hope you like the pics!

sunday at the ima
One of the first people to contact me when I finally got round to getting this gig up and running 'officially' was Jenny; a friend of mine from my time working at First Advantage. Jenny is such a fun and carefree character to be with, that I was really looking forward to taking pics with her and her family. We had to put the shoot back a couple of weeks given the recent storms, but I couldn't have asked for a better day to spend some time with them at the gardens of the IMA. Men and boys usually approach a photography session with all the enthusiasm of receiving a kick in the goolies, but Chris and the lads were on top form despite the heat a ...
