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

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!

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 ...

Monday was a brilliant day for me as I got to follow up a really fun engagement shoot with a family session with my good friends Clay and Emily and their son Evan. The evening's events started off at Hap's Irish Pub, which was really apt as it was there that I first met up with Clay and Emily Bond almost 11 years ago. Clay and I used to work together and when I was shipped in from London with my old work friends Sean Grant (and his wife Jo) and Tracey McNabb, Clay and Emily were the people that set about making us feel welcome and essentially lining up entertainment for us on the weekends. I think one day that October, we watched a football m ...
