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


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.

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.


 Recently we have had quite a lot of cousins in our studio.

Watching these children play and interact with one another has been very heartwarming.

Group portraits of cousins make great gifts for grandparents!  What better way for grandma to show of her grand kids than with one photograph?

 Not to mention, getting your picture taken is more fun when your cousin is there with you.

Happy Birthday Matthew!

We first met Matthew in August of 2011.  He came in to meet us for his first session of his baby plan with a big smile.

It’s hard to believe that was almost a year ago!

Since that first session, Matthew has always brought a super postitive attitude to every session.

He is an extremely happy little boy and such a joy to be around.

It is impossible to not love his adorable smile and those blue eyes.


Thanks for letting us watch you grow up!

Happy Mother’s Day 2012!

I love mom

This year some of our younger clients decided to use our newly created framed chalkboards to make some extra special Mother’s Day memories.

These little girls clearly love their mothers.

Abby proudly displays the picture that she carefully created for her mother.

Harper smiles at her mother while she shows off her artwork

Skyler may have needed some help with her chalkboard, but you can see by the way she is smiling at her mommy that she thinks she is the greatest.

Don’t forget Father’s Day is fast approaching!

Make your appointment soon to ensure the father’s in your life get a gift they will truly love.
