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).

raleigh portrait photographer – cristel’s headshots
Last weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of photographing a very special person indeed: my lovely wife, Cristel! You'd think that with her being married to a photographer, she'd have been in front of my camera quite a few times before, but the truth is that this was the first time we'd ever set out to take "proper" photos of her in our studio. Up till now, it's been mostly about the kids and we've been endlessly procrastinating, waiting for such a day when we could set aside the necessary time to do it properly. So, with the excuse of Cristel needing a new headshot for her newborn photography website amongst other things, Cristel went and an ...
cuteness overload
Yesterday, I had the immense pleasure of sharing my morning with little Abigail and her mum. Abbey was in a great mood, so we got some really nice shots. The only problem was cutting the number of photos down to a manageable number to edit!
panamanian portraiture
As a lot of you may know, I have the fortune of being married to the gorgeous Cristel and dad to the fabbytastic Charlotte. Cristel is originally from Panama and so we get to go down there and hang out with the family quite a lot (though not as much as we would like). Cristel's cousin, Chela, runs a very successful business and took advantage of my stay in Panama to commission a shoot in order to get some pictures of her business for use on corporate literature, some professional headshots, as well as some more traditional family pics. During the shoot, I managed to rope Chela's beautiful daughter Stephanie into posing for some shots while ...
