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:

Late summer mini sessions are here!

We are so excited to finally announce our late summer mini sessions! That's right, we're doubling the fun and are offering 2 completely different themes.

Both mini sessions will be held on Saturday, September 6th and Sunday, September 7th right outside of our studio.

The first theme is our "Vintage Garden." It's designed for girls 6 months (must be able to sit) through 5 years old. This is such a gorgeous session with vintage props and beautiful dresses and accessories. We may even see a few fairies ;). We will provide everything, including the dresses.

 

The second theme is "Hot Air Balloon." This session will be a lot of fun for boys and girls between 6 months (must be able to sit) through 18 months old.

 

Included in the mini session packages are a 10x20 storyboard (regular investment = $295) and a 4x8 accordion book. The storyboards are 3/4" deep and come ready to hang. The accordion book will be designed for this session only and is normally not available.

These are a few samples of what the artwork from these sessions may look like.


 

 

Is it obvious that I'm very much in love with our "Vintage Garden" session? ;) OK, I'll move on to some possible storyboards for the "Hot Air Balloon" session!

 

 

The following may be a possible spread of the 4x8 accordion book.

I'm sure you'll love these sessions and products as much as we do. Spots are limited. Contact us today to book your session!

Abby & Mark

Miss Abby was back in the studio! I can't believe how much she's grown. Did we photograph her 1. birthday session really that long ago? Abby brought her little brother Mark along. He's the master of the cutest facial expressions :)

Model Search

We are currently looking for an 8-24 months old boy or girl (child should be able to stand with or without help) to test the set up for a stylized photo session. The child must be available this week to come into our studio. There is no cost for participating. Models will be rewarded with two 8x10 prints from the session.

Kaden & Kevin

Look who came back to the studio! Kaden has grown so much in the last 6 months. He wasn't really in the mood to get dressed up and photographed, but we managed to get some smiles between the tears. Even his sad face is just so adorable :).


 

Big brother Kevin jumped in for some fun too. His mom told me that he doesn't like his picture taken. Really? He did awesome. What a handsome guy!

Isaiah and Azariah

How often do you meet siblings that are completely different? All the time, I know! These two were no exception to the rule. Isaiah is a handsome and calm young man with a gorgeous smile. Azariah is equally handsome, but he definitely made us work hard. He had a lot of fun being chased around the studio. And so did we ;)
