The Summer of $69 - time to get creative!

There is always a good time and occasion to do portraits.  Milestones, visiting family, a gift for loved ones, updating personal head shots, highlighting a special event.  For some of you, family portraits are an annual occasion which involve a lot of planning and preparing for mommies.  Although I encourage you to relax and just show up,  (keeping in mind to avoid wearing certain things like short dresses and mini skirts, shorts) I applaud those who make coordinating outfits, accessories, and even nails, an art form.

And I think that your family photos on the wall make a statement about you, about the dynamics of your family.

As the temps will begin to rise, keeping sessions short and sweet will be of the essence.  Early mornings are going to be ideal. So for the coming summer, enjoy $69 sessions 30-40 min. in length, with choice of 10 digital files.  That's more than $100 off, and a great excuse to get creative, update, or surprise someone.

Angels among us




Angels among us...I have been meaning to share these images. The mommy who obtained these beautiful wings for the session graciously passed them on to me...I have yet to use these for my little Annika. Time is running out, the stretch between baby and toddler is so short. Any moms out there that want to do something special this summer? All we will need is my black muslin backdrop, these gorgeous wings, and some great natural window light.

Waiting for that sleeping baby

I have found that the majority of babies are not interested in sleeping through their newborn sessions, and so I can get these incredible shots of a newborn looking right into the camera....but getting something like these two shots below generally takes 1-2 hours, a lot of patience, feedings, rocking, diaper changes, parent clothing changes from "accidents", and waiting....

In the second image the baby appears to be sleeping, but in reality she was gassy and fidgeting around in her basket.  This frame was shot seconds before she opened her eyes again and wriggled around.  At this point, we were more than two hours into the session just hoping we could capture a sleeping babe.  But the key is working with what you can, and being creative with what baby is allowing to happen ;)
