Portraiture

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 blanket we used was here mum’s from when she was a baby too.

Anyway, these are just a few of the pictures from the shoot. I had so many smiley ones I had a luxury of choice to select from.

Have a good July 4th weekend everyone.

Cheers,

Joe

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 ...

one sunday in spring…
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!

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 13
I've spoken before about the use of light and it is something I try to focus on with my work, especially during portrait sessions and the times of the day when we have some time to actually go out and "make some pictures". On the wedding day itself, however, time is normally a precious resource and it's not always easy to conjure up nice images out of thin air. There are many factors to work with: light, trying to work out how to make the most of the environment you are in, distractions from the wedding party itself, etc. This week's image is a good example of how just a little bit of legwork and thought can help find a great spot to work wit ...
