Janie and Jack

Erica recently had the pleasure of photographing some little cuties through a promotion at Janie and Jack.  Back to back 20 minute sessions for the whole day aren’t what we are used to doing, but it was a great time … Continue reading

Family Time

November and early December is a very busy time of year for us.

Every year we find ourselves very busy taking family portraits.

We really love this opportunity to capture the love of the families we photograph.

Fall Family Portraits

Fall provides the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot.  We were lucky to get several portrait sessions in this fall, including one with this lovely family.

Here are some images from their session both outdoors and also inside our studio.

We created these adorable Personality Series collages for them as well.  These children were so much fun to work with!

 

Runaways

Photographing children is wonderful.  Capturing the smiles that warm their parents heart is a very rewarding job.

It is also a very entertaining job.  Typically most children ages 1-3 reach a point when they are no longer interested in sitting in a chair and smiling.  Here are a few outtakes from some recent sessions that show that moment when our subjects have tried to runaway.

Oh and please don’t worry, these little ones may be faster than our camera, but they aren’t faster than their parents.

Sometimes these unplanned moments make the greatest memories.  It’s hard not to love this job, especially the silly parts.

We have a new table!

We recently acquired a new child-sized table and chair.

It’s the perfect size for little ones to stand at.

It is quite comfortable to sit on.

It is also extra fun to dangle you feet off the side and enjoy a nice beverage.

Yet it is easy to walk away from.

Even daddy’s can use it!

Here’s one more image just because we couldn’t resist sharing it.

Business Portrait Event @ Capello Hair Designs

We would, first and foremost, like to thank Capello Hair Dasigns for hosting our most recent Business Portrait event and also to Cross Creative Marketing!

We would also like to give a big ‘THANKS’ to everyone that attended the event on August 31!

While Erica was on location she captured a few images of the Capello salon and staff.  Check them out…

We love working with local small businesses.  Contact us if you have a partnership idea!

Our clients know What to Wear!

Sometimes people really stress about what to wear to their photo session.  There are a few important details that need not be overlooked and we will get to those in a minute.  For the record, though, we haven’t seen anyone get it all wrong yet.  So don’t worry!  Planning your family’s outfits should be fun and exciting!

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Simple, neutral, classic colors and styles.
  • Patterns, if any, should be small and subtle.
  • Coordinating or matching outfits.  Try laying out everyone’s outfits on the bed and see if they look good together.
  • Try not to choose anything trendy that will date your photograph.
  • Avoid distractions.  Jewelry and accessories should be minimal.

With all of this said, this is your family portrait, and it should reflect what is important to your family. If you want to go crazy, go crazy!

Many of our clients have done fabulous jobs coordinating their family photo wear.  Here are few…

These outfits look like they were made to go together!  The colors match perfectly!  This family did an excellent job coordinating!

Almost every child has something denim and a white top.  That’s why this was the perfect outfit for these cousins.  They successfully coordinated their outfits without ever actually seeing them together until photo session day!

These boys went the matching route with their khaki shorts and brown plaid button ups, but they each wore them their own way.  Coordinating is important, but it is also important to be comfortable and to be yourself.

Paint Yourself Party

What do you get when you put a bunch of kids in their bathing suits and hand them washable paint?

FUN!

We did just that and discovered some very interesting artwork.

How to have a Children’s Tea Party

We recently hosted a tea party for some friends and family.  We did a little prep work and came up with the following party decor.  Check it out!

This is a handmade sign, created with fabric scraps, a sharpie and some Elmers glue by one of the party-goers.

Fresh flowers and mismatched teacups are crucial for an elegant tea party.

The triangle banners were crafted with double-sided scrapbook paper, a hot glue gun, and ribbon.  The triangles were cut in varying sizes and then hot glued to the ribbon.

The fabric backdrop was created from old sheets.  We cut 4-5 sheets into long strips and tied them all to one long strip.

Antique doilies made everything on our picnic table look extra fancy.

Super fancy-looking peanut butter crackers.

Mike-and-ike’s added elegance to our plain white cake.

Every tea party needs a chic teapot.

Oh fancy gloves!

The picnic table has never looked so luxurious.

Oh and you can’t forget the chandelier.

Teddy was number 1 on the guest list.

All of our guests came dressed to impress…even the boys.

The tea party was a huge success!

We would love to photograph your next big event!  Contact us for more info!
