This precious angel was a dream to work with! She had us all wrapped around her little finger by the time she left (still sleeping, I might add)!

Spring Portrait time is upon us!  And trust us, you don’t want to wait too much longer.  Here are a few reasons why:

  • It’s not too hot.  By the time Memorial Day hits, that summer sun is blazing and you don’t want to look like you’ve just finished an African Safari in your family photos.
  • Everything is green and blooming.  April Showers bring May flowers, but sometimes they can knock all the blooms off.  The earlier in the season you get outside the more likely you are to have that great color that makes your portraits pop!
  • Bugs.  Although we often fight those dreaded inchworms, the real problems of mosquitoes and flies are not out in full force!  The last thing you want to do is be swatting a mosquito when your child finally has that perfect smile.
  • Lighting.  Evening spring lighting is perfect for family portraits, and even better, your husband is going to be off work before we even need to begin the session.  He won’t be able to use getting off of work as an excuse!

There are plenty of beautiful locations around our area that we are more than happy to travel to, including your own backyard (or front).  Don’t hesitate to call!  Check your schedule and call us today.  Evening appointments are limited and will fill up quickly!  And don’t forget to ask about our current booking special!

See Why Our Clients Say It Is Their Favorite Time for Family Portraits

 
In a recent survey to our clients, we asked what was the best time of year for them to be photographed. The answer was unanimous: fall! So let’s take a look at why, logistically and aesthetically, fall is the best time for family portraits!
In the grand scheme of life, the busyness of summer vacations is over and the carpools are firmly organized. School and other activities have started and life has once again become more structured. With schedules firmly in place, it is now much easier to gather the family together for that magazine worthy family photo. Taking the time to do this now will also make shopping for Christmas much easier. In addition to Christmas cards, your images can be used in so many ways as gifts for family this year. Albums, portraits and prints all make perfect gifts for those who seem to have all they need. Finally, fall evenings are the best time to be photographed outside; this is perfect for the working family, allowing everyone to arrive home and get settled before heading out with their best smile on. Logistically, fall makes sense!
 
The weather is beginning to have a crisp coolness, allowing for a more photo friendly environment for both photographer and subjects! Without the summer heat, there are no red faces or fear of having sweat dripping off of your forehead. You will look your best through the entire photo session. Even better, it makes it easier to wear more figure flattering clothing! (Keep in mind that covering the majority of your arms and legs draws less attention to them) Fall is also the time when the outside environment is a beautiful palette of rich, warm, inviting colors. It’s even better that these rich, warm, inviting colors are now the trend in home décor – so your new fall family portrait is going to look stunning in your home! Aesthetically, fall makes sense!
 
We are excited to head outdoors to capture your beautiful family! These sessions always fill up quickly and you definitely do not want to miss out! So what are you waiting for? The timing is just right!

On November 10th & 11th, we will be offering two Christmas sessions that are simply adorable!
Our Perfect Tree session is inspired by the Charlie Brown Christmas movie, with our tiny tree and red pedal car. These are super cute and simple. 
Our Christmas Fantasia set is more of a whimsical holiday session, with non-traditional, bold colors like purple, teal, pink, and lime green. We have photographed both boys or girls on either set. 
There is no session fee for either of these, and packages start at $35. Don’t miss this opportunity to capture your 2014 Christmas memories!
