Portraiture

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 wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 8
One of my favourite parts of the wedding day to cover is the period ahead of the ceremony when the bride is getting ready. This is a really interesting time for me to experience as I don't wear make up (the 80's were a long time ago) and my hair stopped being an issue in the late 90's, so I really do find this preparation period both fascinating to observe and enjoyable to photograph and document. I also really like the quintessential femininity of the process; the chance to enter this world and see the bride interacting with her closest friends and family members at a very emotional moment in their lives is really very special indeed. It's a ...

Last week marked another first for me as I got the chance to hang out with the brilliant Rachel Vanoven of Rachel Vanoven Photography on her cousin Savannah's senior shoot. Growing up in England as I did, the whole 'senior' thing was something I never experienced in high school. Back then, if anyone had ever told me they were going to shoot a senior, I would have thought some old age pensioner was going to be in pretty serious trouble. Anyway, I met up with Rachel, Savannah and her mum Lynda out at Fort Harrison and we spent the next hour or so taking pictures in different locations. It was great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It als ...

I recently got the chance to go and spend a Sunday morning with these two cool little guys. We were originally slated for the Saturday, but the stormy weather put paid to that. The light was interesting as it was rather overcast but still kind of harsh at the same time. There was a cool, old white barn by Cassie and Andrew's house which I used as a big reflector with the backlit shots. It also provided some interesting texture with its peeling paint and rusty metallic outhouses. Anyway, here are the picks of the shoot. Geek info: Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM and EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM lenses and Canon EOS 50D wit ...
