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

raleigh corporate head shot photographer ~ all around raleigh dj
I was recently given the pleasure of being asked to do some corporate shots for Eric and the team at All Around Raleigh DJ. I'd worked with Eric earlier in the season at a wedding at Magnolia Manor, which he did a really fantastic job with, so I was really pleased to head over and do some portraits for him and his team for use on the website. We mixed up some shots inside and out for a couple of different vibes all using natural light from the setting sun. Anyone looking for a Raleigh Wedding DJ should head over to the All Around Raleigh DJ site and drop Eric a line. They really are a great crew to work with: fun, professional and classy. ...

raegan and the boys
The weather over the last few weekends has played total havoc with my schedule with a load of shoots having to be postponed. So I was convinced that my shoot with Raegan and her boys Eli and Ben, was going to be another casualty given the storm that lasted all Friday night/Saturday morning. I got up early, saw the waterlogged lawn in front of our flat and dropped Raegan a line expecting her to want to push the shoot back a few hours at least. As it turned out, I was pleasantly surprised when Raegan told me her boys were keen to run around in the wet grass and get dirty. And that we certainly did. Boys will be boys I suppose! Anyway, we ha ...

raleigh portrait photography – sonia’s sense of snow
Getting the opportunity to do a Raleigh portrait photography session in the snow is not something that comes along every day. As such, when I got the chance to head out into the wintry twilight with Sonia last week, I jumped at the chance. Everything came together very quickly, but the basic remit we set ourselves was to go outside, take some photos, try and experiment a little and push ourselves to do something a bit different whilst having some fun. I'm really pleased with how the images came out and have to say a special thanks to Ashley of Radiant Beauty by Ashley for her gorgeous make-up work and to April of The Oaks at Salem for h ...
