sunday at the ima

Portraiture

One of the first people to contact me when I finally got round to getting this gig up and running ‘officially’ was Jenny; a friend of mine from my time working at First Advantage. Jenny is such a fun and carefree character to be with, that I was really looking forward to taking pics with her and her family. We had to put the shoot back a couple of weeks given the recent storms, but I couldn’t have asked for a better day to spend some time with them at the gardens of the IMA. Men and boys usually approach a photography session with all the enthusiasm of receiving a kick in the goolies, but Chris and the lads were on top form despite the heat and humidity. There was a fair amount of banter between us and I think it shows in the photos that we all had a bit of a laugh. It really was a great experience (for me at least!).

Anyway, this is the slideshow I put together for Jenny. She told me she cried when she first saw it. I’m not sure if that’s due to the photos or Kenny Chesney’s warbling, but hey. I’ll take what I can get. Enjoy!

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 struc ...

Back when I got organised and officially kicked off "Joe Payne Photography", I was really pleased to get an email from Ashley, whose daughter Abbi used to be in the same group at daycare as Charlotte. Abbi recently turned 18 months, so we spent an hour early on Sunday morning walking around Zionsville. It was probably the hottest day I have ever had to work in, but it was a gorgeous morning and Abbi did brilliantly despite the heat. I hope you like the pics!

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!
