I want to say a huge thank you to all of the families who made my mini session special a huge success. I've had so much fun photographing you and your children over the past month. Today I'm posting a few photos from my last November mini session. I plan to offer another mini session this spring, so if you missed out this time, keep watching my blog or like me on facebook to receive future announcements.
Tonight I'm trying to take a few deep breaths before we begin a crazy busy week. I love the holidays, but they do tend to kick my type A personality into overdrive. Before I go to bed early tonight, I wanted to pop in a quick little sneak peek at the super sweet family I photographed yesterday.
I have a couple of posts planned for later this week, but just in case things get too busy and I don't get around to them, I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. I know I have A LOT to be thankful for this year!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from one of last week's sessions. These three siblings are so sweet. I talked to their mom today, and big sister thinks I live at the park where we took the photos. How cute is that!
A quick sneak peek of my latest little clients. I love this shot of them. The three of them are so sweet together! Big sister kept wanting to give her baby sister kisses. What a sweetheart!
This next client is a perfect example of why I started Annabelle's. This mama has always been disappointed in studio portraits of her kiddos. From the minute she stepped out of her car, I could tell that she didn't have high hopes for our session. She confessed that she didn't think her kids were photogenic and that her favorite photos of them were pictures where they weren't looking at the camera. As a mommy, it kind of broke my heart a little bit. Her kids are absolutely adorable! Every mommy deserves great pictures of her kids. The problem is, most kids aren't really comfortable in front of a camera, especially when there's a total stranger behind it. Throw in a windowless studio with bright lights, and it's no wonder they freeze up and get that deer in the headlights look. That's why I love lifestyle photography. Kids get to play, explore, and have fun. Even though the portraits are semi posed, the kids tend to losen up a bit. And to be honest, I think the best photos of all are the ones I catch when the little ones aren't looking and forget I'm there. Here are a few photos from our session. Aren't her kids gorgeous! They're super sweet too. I'm so excited to have given her photos that she loves and that reflect her kids' personalities.
I'm so excited to announce that my first mini session photos are now ready for my client, and I've got more mini sessions planned. It's not too late for outdoor pictures! While most mini session albums will not be posted for everyone to see, I wanted to give you an idea of what you can expect to get from a session. If you click here, you can see the entire album from my first session. Remember, you get one high resolution JPEG image with full printing rights absolutely free with the $35 session fee, and for only $25 more, you can get the entire album on a CD, again with full printing rights. Not only that, but I'll let you in on a little secret. I have a hard time limiting myself to just 15 photos, so if you do order a CD, there's a good chance you'll get a few freebies thrown in. That's right, I'll pop a few extra pictures that you haven't seen yet on your CD as a nice little surprise. For example, my first client will also receive these pictures.
I love that picture. It shows just how much fun we were having that afternoon. Mini sessions are booking fast, so reserve your time today!
