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

I also really like the quintessential femininity of the process; the chance to enter this world and see the bride interacting with her closest friends and family members at a very emotional moment in their lives is really very special indeed. It's a ...

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!

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!
