raegan and the boys

Portraiture

The weather over the last few weekends has played total havoc with my schedule with a load of shoots having to be postponed. So I was convinced that my shoot with Raegan and her boys Eli and Ben, was going to be another casualty given the storm that lasted all Friday night/Saturday morning. I got up early, saw the waterlogged lawn in front of our flat and dropped Raegan a line expecting her to want to push the shoot back a few hours at least.

As it turned out, I was pleasantly surprised when Raegan told me her boys were keen to run around in the wet grass and get dirty. And that we certainly did. Boys will be boys I suppose! Anyway, we had a fun walk around the gardens at the IMA and got some nice photos. The sun came out as we were driving up and so the day actually turned out perfectly. The only moment of alarm was when Ben took a bit of a running dive into a muddy puddle towards the end. He was a trooper though and walked it off pretty quickly. He was also kind enough to fall on his back so the shoot could go on. So considerate of him!

As subjects, Eli and Ben were great fun. Ben was a bit shy at first, but warmed up as the shoot went on. I can’t believe he is only three. He has the face of a little gentleman. Eli, on the other hand, was a total natural hamming it up for the camera. Definitely a mischievous smile too! All in all, there was plenty of fun to be had for all involved.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the pics!

Cheers,

Joe

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 first introduced to Chad Biggs and his team back in September 2014, after shooting co-founder and lead planner, Jessica's, wedding the previous month. Since then, I've had the pleasure of working with them on a number of weddings both at Melrose Knitting Mill and in other venues. To me, they've always been really great people to work with: totally on their game with regard to the planning and nailing all the little details, but they've also been really fun and friendly people to spend time with too, which is great given the pressures of working on such mentally demanding events as weddings. So it was great to get a call from Jessica ear ...

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!
