Look who came to see us in the studio today! This teeny tiny lady made her arrival just one week ago today, and was so perfectly precious. Not such a huge fan of some of the props her mom and dad wanted her photographed on, she was a trooper, and allowed us to get great images that her parents will treasure. Sharon was behind the camera for this shoot, while I handled Paige, and the results are great. Here are two of my favorites from today’s newborn shoot.
This baby girl came into the studio for her first birthday photos, and after a little time to get used to her environment and me, she did great. Before the session Tiffany consulted with the family about their goals for displaying the images. They have a particular wall in the home they want to hang wall art on, so we were able to use that information to guide them on their wardrobe choices, and backdrop selection. It’s so helpful to know what the end-game goals are for each session we do, that way we’re sure to give you exactly what you want!
Here’s a taste of her session to keep her parents busy until they see the rest!
When a photo session takes place at a child’s home, they can often be a bit tougher to separate from their toys, and a bit harder to keep where you want them… but, you do get the advantage of seeing them in a place where they are at their most comfortable, and where they truly act like themselves. This past weekend, I got to hang out with this one-year-old, and chase him around his house — I lucked out, because his home had great windows in nearly every room, and allowed us to get artistic, playful, affectionate and fun pictures wherever we went. I love the variety and the feelings evoked in the photos, and can’t wait to do my next at-home photo shoot!
I spend my life capturing and preserving the events and love that my clients share. Why do I do this? To bring a smile to their faces each time they see the images and recall a moment, an emotion, or a time that past by too fast. That in itself holds a great value, however there are times when having photos of those people, moments & experiences hold even more value…
Yesterday I lost my grandmother. She was 97, and was fantastic. She smiled at everyone whether she knew them or not, and was the living embodiment of love, selflessness & positive thinking. Loss is awful… There’s no way to avoid it, but it doesn’t matter how wonderful their life, or how easy their passing– losing someone you love hurts.
But it is during these times when I am even more appreciative of my job. As I look through my years of images, I see all the times I laughed, danced, and hugged this person I cherished. I can say now that I loved holding her hands… She had the softest skin… But when I see myself holding her hand in a photo, I know that I didn’t wait til she was gone to appreciate the little things.
Photos of loved ones are valuable when they’re around, but invaluable when they’re not. I will cherish the photos I have of my grandmother forever, and feel lucky to get to give that gift to people every day.
