fun in the sun with lily and josie – raleigh wedding and portrait photographers

Portraiture

The final part of my triple-header of shoots last Sunday took me to my old stamping grounds in Cincinnati, OH. Ault Park to be precise. This place has a lot of great memories for me, including a certain office party almost 10 years ago where far too much alcohol was consumed and I ruined a perfectly good tuxedo. Anyway, if you’d told me back then I would be working as a photographer now, I would have probably told you (in a slurred English accent) you were slightly barking. But so it is, and so it was that I spent last Sunday evening dodging the storms and taking photographs of Lily and Josie and their mum and dad, Christine and Nick.

The lighting for this shoot was pretty much perfect. A storm had come through a few hours earlier and it was really humid, but with the setting sun, the air had a really nice glow to it. That combined with the fact that Josie and Lily are such natural subjects, I was really pleased with the results and it capped the day off nicely.

Editing these was pretty tough as I had such a plethora of material to go through and weed out all but the very best shots in order to make the viewing as easy as possible. Here are my favourites for you to have a look at.

Happy Independence Day everyone and remember that, like Thanksgiving, we English invented that particular holiday for you. Now you just need to get Boxing Day on the calendars too.

Cheers,

Joe

an afternoon at katie’s…
OK, so this past weekend was a bit of a bust weather-wise. Luckily for me, I got a concentrated blast of sunshine on Saturday afternoon in the form of Katie and her family. Remind me to take my shades next time I go to visit with Olivia and Mayson. What a couple of little characters! As you can see below, the pics turned out great. I have to say a big thanks to Katie and BJ for helping out with the candy and bribery. Believe it or not, Olivia would not sit still for long, so I needed all the help I could get! Thanks too to Mayson for putting up with my lame jokes and humouring me when she was well past her "done" stage. Have a great wee ...

We started off at the Old Well where we took some traditional graduation portraits, before heading for a walk around campus looking for interesting light and areas to shoot some more experimental/dramatic stuff. Here are just a few of my faves from the shoot.

max
Back in early October, I got the chance to hang out with Max and take his senior pictures for him. It was a really nice evening and I had scouted out a few locations for us to hit up, so we headed out and got the job done. There are some great old abandoned redbrick warehouses out on 16th Street in Indianapolis, right by the railway on what is now the Monon Trail. We took a few pictures there and in the playing fields next door before heading downtown to the area by Meridian and South by the Slippery Noodle and then across to Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts, and then back again to the tunnels under the railway there. Max was typically ...
