Brad and Jennie are two of my best friends here in Indy. I met them about three years ago (wow, time flies!), on a night out with some of Lilly’s Latino contingent on one of their monthly sushi club outings. Since then, not only have we consumed an ungodly amount of raw fish, beer and plum wine, we have also become great mates. Brad even let me come over and swear loudly at his telly a couple of years ago as I watched England pummeled into defeat by South Africa in the rugby World Cup final. That shows what a top bloke he is. Jennie, on the other hand, is one of those rare ladies that is really gorgeous to look at (Colts cheerleader material anyone?), but is also a REALLY lovely person to boot! That Brad is a truly lucky man (but not as lucky as me of course!).

Anyway, Brad and Jennie recently welcomed their first child, a beautiful little girl called Isabella Eileen, into the world. So it was really nice that they entrusted me with the honour of taking their newborn pics for them. Working with such tiny babies can be really tough as they rarely cooperate. Luckily for me, not only was Isabella on her best behaviour, but she has also inherited her parents’ good looks and laid back temperament. Throw in some creativity courtesy of the proud parents (and grandparents and auntie) and you have the recipe for a great shoot. And so it was.

These are just a few of my faves. Thanks again to the whole Reed López posse for their support! Love you guys!

raleigh portrait photographer – jackie’s maternity session
One of the best things about my job is being there with my clients to document the story of their family as it grows in the years after the wedding. Just over two years ago, I shot Jackie & Rob's engagement session, followed by Jackie's bridal session in January of 2016 and their gorgeous wedding photographs the month after that. So I was really thrilled when Jackie and Rob reached out to me to let me know they are expecting their first child and I was looking forward to seeing them again for their portrait session celebrating Jackie's maternity a few weeks ago. We started out by taking a relaxed stroll around JC Raulston arboretum before ...
twilight III – clay, emily and evan
Monday was a brilliant day for me as I got to follow up a really fun engagement shoot with a family session with my good friends Clay and Emily and their son Evan. The evening's events started off at Hap's Irish Pub, which was really apt as it was there that I first met up with Clay and Emily Bond almost 11 years ago. Clay and I used to work together and when I was shipped in from London with my old work friends Sean Grant (and his wife Jo) and Tracey McNabb, Clay and Emily were the people that set about making us feel welcome and essentially lining up entertainment for us on the weekends. I think one day that October, we watched a football m ...
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!
