Portraiture

Last week marked another first for me as I got the chance to hang out with the brilliant Rachel Vanoven of Rachel Vanoven Photography on her cousin Savannah’s senior shoot. Growing up in England as I did, the whole ‘senior’ thing was something I never experienced in high school. Back then, if anyone had ever told me they were going to shoot a senior, I would have thought some old age pensioner was going to be in pretty serious trouble.

Anyway, I met up with Rachel, Savannah and her mum Lynda out at Fort Harrison and we spent the next hour or so taking pictures in different locations. It was great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It also gave me the chance to road test my new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens, which was a pleasure in itself. What a fabulous piece of kit that is! Here are some of the pics:

Thanks again to Rachel, Savannah and Lynda for allowing me along for the ride.

It's been a really hectic few weeks for me between one thing and another, so I was really looking forward to meeting up with Trisha and her family for a shoot at the IMA. Trisha and I used to work together when I lived in Cincinnati, and it was great to see her and her husband Chris again after almost 4 years. They drove in from Dayton, OH that morning bringing their two fun boys, Quinn and Liam, with them. We went for a wander around and got some really nice pics. Here is the pick of the crop.

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 ...

Last Sunday, I took a trip over to my old stamping grounds in Cincinnati to hang out with some old friends in Ault Park. It was a perfect evening with some gorgeous light from the setting sun catching the blossom. All in all, great lighting, lovely scenery and cool subjects = a recipe for success.     PS - Happy Birthday Drew! 4 today!
