Here are our new 2010 Holiday Designs
People often think studio photography is only for those who want to wear white shirts and jeans and be photographed on a white background. While I love the classic high key (white on white) look, I wanted to show you all of the other options available for in studio photography.
We do our best to have a telephone or in person consultation with every client. Your consultation is the time to get to know each other, talk about what you are looking for in a portrait and I find the most common questions are about backdrop choice and clothing options.
We have several background choices available for your session; black, white, grey, black and white damask, royal blue, midnight blue, caramel brown, rocker brown, and twilight.
After the decsion has been made for the background choice, next comes the question of what to wear?
Your clothing should be about who you are as a person; if you usually wear sneakers and ripped jeans having your photos done in a suit will feel uncomfortable and it will show in the photographs. If on the other hand, you feel you rock out in a shirt and tie as Ryan does, bring it!
Although you don’t necessarily have to match, I think coordinating outfits works well. You may find you already have lots to work with in your closet, if not… who doesn’t love to get new clothes?
Custom photography is all about choices; it’s about you so make it personal.
I’ve compiled a collection of images to show you all of our background choices and some great examples of clothing that looks great with each.
Family abroad has been eagerly waiting to see more of our images featuring our newest set of twins; Miss M and Miss P. As promised (a little late) here are two more from their on location family shoot; check out the sneak peek a few weeks back.
I love this image and had to share….it makes me giggle every time.
This past summer has been one of location, location, location. I love going on location for a variety of reasons. Firstly, I love it because because it gets me out of the studio and into the fresh air. Secondly, I love that I have a career that I can combine family and work time. We (Joe, Hudson and I) usually make the session an afternoon adventure. We go on the shoot (yes, all of us), we then often stay and play for a for a while and then we usually have supper at a local restaurant or in the case of our trip to a family’s cottage, we stay the night at a B&B. Lastly, but certainly not least, I love location because it’s a great opportunity to stretch the creative muscles and create amazing images for my clients like this one. I love, love, love this image. Thank You, you were amazing to photograph and I am thrilled you will let me share these.
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to go on location to N&L’s home a week ago to photograph their beautiful twins girls at a mere 10 days old. Their adorable parents are two of the most well traveled people I’ve met. They’ve lived abroad for some time and have settled here in NS to raise their family. I met them a few months back when they came into the studio for their maternity shoot and was invited to their home a week ago to take their first family images. Mom and Dad were most gracious with my fab. assistant Andrea and I. Upon arrival one would think we were moving in with all of our gear and props we had with us! Thanks so much for allowing us to come in and photograph this amazing time for you, it was our pleasure. Enjoy your sneak peek.
Tis that time of year again…hard to believe it is the last day of the summer. We have been busily planning our fall schedule which means I’ve neglected the blog a wee bit.
I have the pleasure of meeting so many amazing families and I met this one a few weeks ago and really enjoyed meeting them all. You know that feeling when you meet a person and there is that sense of familiarity as though you’ve met before…we’ll that’s how I’ll describe my first meeting with the mom of these two amazing young men. It was a really fun and relaxed shoot with so many images to choose from, can’t wait to show Mom the finished canvas.
