Portraiture

I recently got the chance to go and spend a Sunday morning with these two cool little guys. We were originally slated for the Saturday, but the stormy weather put paid to that. The light was interesting as it was rather overcast but still kind of harsh at the same time. There was a cool, old white barn by Cassie and Andrew’s house which I used as a big reflector with the backlit shots. It also provided some interesting texture with its peeling paint and rusty metallic outhouses. Anyway, here are the picks of the shoot.

Geek info: Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM and EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM lenses and Canon EOS 50D with EF 85mm f/1.8 USM and 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM lenses

So I was really thrilled when Jackie and Rob reached out to me to let me know they are expecting their first child and I was looking forward to seeing them again for their portrait session celebrating Jackie's maternity a few weeks ago. We started out by taking a relaxed stroll around JC Raulston arboretum before ...

One of my favourite parts of the wedding day to cover is the period ahead of the ceremony when the bride is getting ready. This is a really interesting time for me to experience as I don't wear make up (the 80's were a long time ago) and my hair stopped being an issue in the late 90's, so I really do find this preparation period both fascinating to observe and enjoyable to photograph and document. 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 ...
