Portraiture

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).

On Friday last week, I met up with young Maggie and her parents, Terri and Adam for an early-morning shoot at the IMA. The first thing I saw when I looked into the back of the car, were two brilliant blue eyes shining back at me from the car seat. I think my words to Terri were: "Wow! we're going to have some fun with them!". And so we did. Maggie was a really great little baby to photograph: she smiled when asked to and looked at the camera pretty much on demand too. Mum and dad had come well prepared too, with plenty of props and clothes. The rocking chair in the pictures is a family heirloom going back at least three generations. The b ...

raleigh portrait photography – sonia’s sense of snow
Getting the opportunity to do a Raleigh portrait photography session in the snow is not something that comes along every day. As such, when I got the chance to head out into the wintry twilight with Sonia last week, I jumped at the chance. Everything came together very quickly, but the basic remit we set ourselves was to go outside, take some photos, try and experiment a little and push ourselves to do something a bit different whilst having some fun. I'm really pleased with how the images came out and have to say a special thanks to Ashley of Radiant Beauty by Ashley for her gorgeous make-up work and to April of The Oaks at Salem for h ...

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 ...
