Holidays!

It’s that time of year!

Time to start planning out all of your holiday sessions. Whether you want a fall family session, or to take part in a Christmas mini, now is the time to book!

Up first are Halloween Minis! Wear a spooky outfit or your Halloween costume. Sessions are $50 and include a 20 minute session along with 5 digital images. (edited and also come with black and white versions) Click through the images below!

Next are Christmas Minis. Booking for the month of November. Christmas minis are $75 and include a 20 minute session, and 6 digital images (edited and black and white versions). These minis are meant for 5 people or less, due to the size of the background. If you have a larger group, or would like an outdoor session, head over to my family pricing page and check out the Petite Session.

More updates on my recent sessions to come. You guys have for sure kept me very busy lately!

(Thank you!)


Fresh 48: Sweetest Babe

When you hire a photographer, usually there will be a waiver to sign. In short they say something like all images belong to the photographer, they reserve the right to use the images to promote their business or however they need, and (usually) you have bought the right to print and share the images. 

Don't be afraid to ask exactly how your pictures will be used, and communicate what you are comfortable with. I can tell you exactly how I use the photographs I take - I usually select a few of my favorites from the session, add them to my portfolio and make a blog post about them! I may print some photos to display in my studio, but I do usually let you know about that. 

I will not share photos that have any of your information in the photos. (which usually only comes about in fresh 48 hospital sessions) If you are really uncomfortable with certain photos being displayed, just let me know! I will do my best to accommodate you and find some photos that work for us both to put on display. 

That said, I photographed this little sweetheart recently.

Her parents had those exact questions from above. Which is good! You should know exactly what you are getting, and how your photos will be used.

They were the sweetest little family. Have I said how much I love Fresh 48 sessions?

Fresh 48: Staci

This little lady decided her birthdate, as mom had a scheduled c-section, but she came the day before!

Fresh 48 sessions are some of my favorite to shoot. There's something about a new baby, and the quiet of the hospital room. I also love watching parents interacting with their newest family member. Whether it's the first child, or the fourth, there's so much love and tenderness.

I was also lucky enough to shoot Staci's maternity shoot about a month ago. (you can check out the blog post about four posts back)

This girl has lots of cousins ready to shower her with some love too! (Don't be shy about getting siblings or other family members into your shoot.) 

Portrait Session: Blog Portraits

I had the privilege of working with Huda (@yourstrulyhuda). She's runs a lifestyle blog - so go check her out! (yourstrulyhuda.com)

Pretttty sure I only had to say 'turn a little this way' a few times. 

Don't let this keep you from getting pictures though. I have no problem directing, although most people just need a little warm up time to get into it. 

Unless of course you are like me and have no idea what to do in front of the camera. Don't worry! I feel you, and I am there to guide you.

Such a wonderful shoot, with a wonderful lady. Plus I LOVE the fall vibes. 

Because in my personal opinion, fall in the best season.
