Looking back at how the kids that come into my studio for photos grow and change is one of the best parts of getting to see families year after year. Ari and Noah came into the studio this morning along with their family for an updated set of portraits. The boys are adorable, and so so cute! I loved seeing how Ari looks the same, but older… and how Noah has transformed from a baby into a boy in what feels like a minute! Take a look down memory lane… we missed last year, but you’ll see how these guys have grown up in front of my eyes… and camera.
We were all hard at work today, and felt left out with the Black Friday madness… so we’re throwing a RIDICULOUS deal your way! So many people are torn between wanting summer photos with the flowers and tanned faces, and capturing the majestic fall leaves for their holiday photo shoots. Now you don’t have to choose! For the next week… meaning, between now and Friday, December 6th… call to book your Fall 2014 session (September – December), and get a FREE SUMMER 2014 SESSION (May – July)!! Yes, I must have eaten too much turkey yesterday, but there it is! There are some rules though… the sessions are not transferrable, and may only take place within those windows. They can be in our studio or outside… up to you! We’ll go over the rest on the phone, but give us a call this week to take advantage!!
Thanksgiving is about two things… food and family. Truth be told, when gathered around the table, it doesn’t really matter what you’re putting on your plate if you’re laughing, reminiscing, and just being around people you love. It’s no surprise that we love this about Thanksgiving… I mean, we literally chose to make our lives about families, memories, and commemorating the love that exists between people. So in honor of this delicious holiday, we want to say THANKS to all of you for letting us do what we love, while sharing in, witnessing and experiencing your families’ affection for one another.
I’ve been photographing this little lady for years. It started with our old Playmatters mini-sessions, and now I got the chance to document this important right of passage in her and her family’s lives. The session was short and sweet, but we were able to not only capture the traditional beautifully poetic portraits, but we also made sure to grab some great shots of this dynamic girl’s personality.
I seriously love my job… I love getting to do my hobby as my job, and I really love the people I get to meet. Last Sunday I traveled to Elyria to photograph a large group who wanted photos for no occasion, no reunion, just to celebrate the fact that they are together often, love to be together, and had never celebrated that with photos. I was so thrilled to be a part of this. I have a large family, and we too spend a lot (maybe too much) time together, so I totally got it. This group was a blast! I probably verged on unprofessional… especially when I sat down on Gramma’s lap, but it was such a great experience working with this family. They even invited me to join them for brunch, and I was sorry to not be able to join them. Thanks to everyone in this gang for starting my day off great– I can’t wait to see them again when they come in to see the rest.
