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.

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

One of the best things about my job is being there with my clients to document the story of their family as it grows in the years after the wedding. Just over two years ago, I shot Jackie & Rob's engagement session, followed by Jackie's bridal session in January of 2016 and their gorgeous wedding photographs the month after that. 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 ...

I was first introduced to Chad Biggs and his team back in September 2014, after shooting co-founder and lead planner, Jessica's, wedding the previous month. Since then, I've had the pleasure of working with them on a number of weddings both at Melrose Knitting Mill and in other venues. To me, they've always been really great people to work with: totally on their game with regard to the planning and nailing all the little details, but they've also been really fun and friendly people to spend time with too, which is great given the pressures of working on such mentally demanding events as weddings. So it was great to get a call from Jessica ear ...

One of the first people to contact me when I finally got round to getting this gig up and running 'officially' was Jenny; a friend of mine from my time working at First Advantage. Jenny is such a fun and carefree character to be with, that I was really looking forward to taking pics with her and her family. We had to put the shoot back a couple of weeks given the recent storms, but I couldn't have asked for a better day to spend some time with them at the gardens of the IMA. Men and boys usually approach a photography session with all the enthusiasm of receiving a kick in the goolies, but Chris and the lads were on top form despite the heat a ...
