Portraiture

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!

I was recently given the pleasure of being asked to do some corporate shots for Eric and the team at All Around Raleigh DJ. I'd worked with Eric earlier in the season at a wedding at Magnolia Manor, which he did a really fantastic job with, so I was really pleased to head over and do some portraits for him and his team for use on the website. We mixed up some shots inside and out for a couple of different vibes all using natural light from the setting sun. Anyone looking for a Raleigh Wedding DJ should head over to the All Around Raleigh DJ site and drop Eric a line. They really are a great crew to work with: fun, professional and classy. ...
