Check out the Orrick Family!!! I swear these guys are the most photogenic and well-behaved little guys I’ve photographed (maybe ever lol). The Orrick family was amazing to work with and when Kristi said she wanted to do our longer session to work in two locations I was a little skeptical that I could hold the attention of three young boys for that long. But these three (and mom and dad) did amazing! They were perfect at following directions and boy did they bring the charm (just look at those smiles).
We wanted something with a little urban texture and with the whites/creams/reds/blues that we knew would match their home decor well so this location was a perfect fit.
And Kristi already knew she wanted to make sure we fit in time for images around the Country Club golf course since Steve works there and these guys are quite the golfers! Well I love any time we can add a personal touch to a session like this and the golf course is absolutely beautiful (one of my FAVORITE Decatur wedding venues!!)
And the best part about photographing a family session on a golf course has to be the golf cart rides (especially if you’re a boy!). I definitely don’t think these guys minded that part one bit!
I’m so glad that we were able to not only design a feature wall art piece and some accents for their home but also that they decided to showcase all their favorite images in one of our legacy albums. This is always my favorite way to preserve and highlight this slice of time in my client’s lives.
Don’t forget to head over to our facebook page soon to give them some love with your likes & comments! And if you’d like to work with us to design a family session this year give us a call. We are now booking all of 2017 (including fall which fills quickly) and we’d love to work with YOU.
It’s time to show off the Smith family today! We fit this gorgeous family into an EARLY morning Limited Edition session this fall and I’m so glad we did. We were working to find time to fit them in before a day full of activities/games and it came together perfectly with this beautiful sunrise light.
While I loved this session, I’m most excited about how this family decided to display their images! This was the first time this family had worked with us and Aimee was excited to not only have professional images created but also to display them in their home. She came in with a number of wall images so we could design something perfect for their space (one that already featured a gorgeous shabby chic door hung right on their wall – real statement piece!). While she wasn’t opposed to moving that large piece to replace it with a portrait similar in size (60″ +) we instead decided to design with it in mind and create a smaller series of images that could be hung together or moved around as they like.
Doing a number of canvases also allowed us to feature each of the kids’ favorite portraits of themselves and a couple different family poses for different spaces in the house.
By far my favorite thing to create for families are their personal home galleries! We wake up to 3 of our wedding images each day, and walk down stairs past 60 inches of portraits of ourselves (which will soon be growing with the addition of at least 5 new wall art pieces in our gallery to show off BabyB). And while writing this it seems a bit narcissistic, in reality it doesn’t feel that way at all. It instead fills my heart with love and joy for my family each day when I get to see us happy, loving and together on our walls. And the best part is little BabyB points and says ‘mommy, daddy, bear, lily’ when she sees them too!
Full family sessions are often tough to fit into your busy schedules (I know, scheduling acrobatics is a bit part of my job!) but imagine what we can create for your family and for your home with just 15/30 minutes… just a single Limited Edition in 2017 could add a little love and light to your home and I’d love to be a part of creating that for you.
Booking is open NOW for our 2017 Limited Edition Session dates and full sessions are already filling fast (sunset spaces in for fall especially!). You can book your Limited Edition Session right HERE right NOW!
I love meeting new clients, but there is something really special about repeat clients. Having the chance to watch families grow and change over the years is a pretty awesome part of this job and I’m excited to have worked with this adorable group for the last 4-5 years to create their annual family portraits.
It’s rare these days with our busy lives that I find families who do make the time to get in front of the camera EVERY year and I’m so glad these guys do. I’ve watch Cruz (the littlest) grow from a baby into a spunky toddler and energetic little boy. Chloe is growing into quite the young lady and is so helpful on session both with her brothers and even with my gear that she might just have to start tagging along with me on sessions for the extra hands. And Ryne (who never used to smile for the camera) is getting used to this whole photo thing every year and is now a pretty suave little man!
For the first time this year we decided to do something a little Christmas themed for these guys as well as inlcuding in their pup since we hadn’t done that in a few years.
The McCoy’s have a pretty good rhythm in place for updating their focal wall art pieces in the home. We have a designed a gallery wall for them with a large focal piece and a series of smaller images as well. Last year we updated their smaller pieces and this year (with the dog) it was time to update the large wall art (with the one below!).
Families don’t feel bad if it’s been 1 year or 10 years since your last family portrait! Today is always the right time for your next one and even with a quick 15 minute Limited Edition session we can update your family legacy and leave something fun for your kids to love today and for the rest of their lives.
We still have one day of studio Limited Edition sessions available this year on Saturday 12/3 and sessions are only $45!
Today is the day guys! It is the one and only day of the year where you can get unheard of savings on your 2017 sessions/images. And the best part is you can get this great savings with no lines, no pushing, no checkout counter… just you (in your pjs if you like) and your computer (or even your phone). It really doesn’t get much easier than that?
So what can you get?
Well first off we have ANY 1 hour session (regularly $125) for only $40! While you’re welcome to stock up for yourself these are purchased again and again each year as the perfect personal (yet inexpensive) gift for friends, family, coworkers, bosses, assistants, neighbors, etc.
These sessions can be used for ANYTHING… seniors, engagements, newborns, children, families, pets, boudoir, you name it! And, let us know when you order if this is a gift and we’ll wrap it up special for you too.
AND…. how about GIFT CARDS!
That’s right, today only you can save big on your entire 2017 portrait order. Looking for the perfect statement piece in your entryway or above the mantle and have a custom-portrait in mind – CHECK. Have you seen our designer albums and know youre senior would love one of those to show off – CHECK. With our $100 and $500 gift cards on sale today you can save on literally ANY custom portrait design we’ll create for you in 2017.
Now… the ‘fine print’ is pretty simple: this sale is for NEW 2017 sessions and gift cards cannot be applied to any 2016 orders OR on weddings that are already under contract for 2017. But if your session isn’t on the books yet then dive in because this sale is for YOU!
I love love love this family and am SO excited to show off some of their favorite images from this past fall’s session. I’ve had the privilege to photograph the Paradee family a few times all starting with the lovely Ms Bridget’s senior portraits a few years ago!
I’m honored that these guys came back again for me to create some portrait art for their walls along with Christmas cards! In the midst of this heat wave I thought it would be great to remember fall is coming and look back at some cozy fall portraits. It’s hard to believe we are already filling our fall and Christmas schedule for this year too!
