Holiday Sessions are here!

We are ready to go for our holiday session weekend. I'm so excited! The sun is out, but it's a chilly 31 degrees. That definitely gets us in the mood to start thinking about the upcoming holday season.

All proceeds go to benefit Broad Run High School. This years winners are Sharon and her beautiful family. We had a lot of fun working with them!

Nathaniel's newborn session

What a sweet little guy! Nathaniel slept for the majority of the session. Look at the cute little dark curls on his head!

I made sure to fit in some cuddle time with him ;)

Crystal & James's maternity session

Cute coupe alert! Those two were definitely glowing in anticipation of their first baby. I love to capture a family during one of the most exciting times in their life…expecting a sweet new baby boy!

FAQ: What will happen if I crop an image?

Many of our customers ask us about sizing the favorite images they choose from our session. Sizing is usually not a problem, but sometimes it can be a little tricky. Therefore we have created a description below - hopefully it will answer some of your questions!

 

Photographic prints come in many standard sizes (4x6, 8x12, etc.). The camera automatically creates images in a 2:3 ratio. The first images in the vertical and horizontal cropping guides below (4x6, 8x12, etc.) show the images in their original 2:3 ratio.

 

But there are many other common print sizes that do not have the 2:3 ratio. If you look at the 8x10 or any of the square sizes you'll see that part of the image will be cropped. For that reason it may not always be possible to crop every image to a certain size. We may lose too much of the background or crop off a person's hands or feet.

 

Think about where in your home you would like to display your artwork: the wall space should be your guide to select a size that works for the space. Don't worry! We will talk about all these things in our pre-session consultation, and you will get exactly what you are looking for.

 

Below is the cropping guide for vertical crops we created for you:

This is the cropping guide for a horizontal crop:
