What NOT To Wear

We just had our own family portraits done this Spring & I have to say the most fun for me was shopping for what we all would wear.  I hope it's obvious from above that doing "matchy matchy" is not the best way to go.  Unless you are going for - we are a super silly & fun family!  If that's the case, rock it!  It's easier to go for similar colors that compliment each other or have the same vibe.  For example, we live in a century home & for the L's I found these darling antique beige, lace dresses, a beige dress with an asymmetrical ruffle & my boys were in different styles of a white button down & beige shorts.  I've had a family use a main color of red, but each person had a different style of outfit.  One had a dress, others had jeans, one had a button down, others had polos.  And most importantly make sure it is something that each family member likes & will be comfortable while wearing.  When you are comfy it is reflected in your photos.  I can remember hating swim lessons as a kid simply because I thought my swimsuit was ugly.  Ugh!!  I can still see it.  Navy blue with a red belt that had a single, navy blue button right in the middle.  Eeeek!  I hope the pictured examples help.  You can always click on them to see them larger.  Have a fun & safe Labor Day weekend!  {{Hugs!!}}

First Mini Session Fun!

I had sooo much FUN at my 1st mini session & couldn't have asked for better lovies to be involved.  We had some cute vintage props & our barn made for a lovely, little, red school house vibe!  This session also reconnected me with a couple former classmates of my own & no doubt their children inherited their lovely hearts.  I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.  Keep posted for details of my next mini session coming up this Autumn!!  {{Hugs!}

What the Crop?

 Did you ever realize that the size you choose to print can slightly alter the image?  This is normal & I've posted a guide image from a photog pal so you can see what I mean.  Just click on the picture to see it larger.  Most online print companies have a Preview button so you can see how your image will look cropped in that size.  I hope this was another helpful lil tid bit.  Have a wonderful weekend!!  {{Hugs!}}

Happy Hearts

I had a great day & session with a lovely friend I haven't seen since graduation.  I got to meet her amazing lil man & it was amazing how it felt like we just had 3-4 Lunch a week ago.  The old yearbooks got pulled out & we reminisced & laughed.  We also had a fun time taking pics of Mr. B.  Those gorgeous blue eyes & that amazing smile can't help, but make your heart happy.  The mosquitoes liked him & all of us very much as well.  I don't recall ever such a bad year of them, but he smiled thru outfit changes & had lots of energy & all that fun carried into him later playing with my kids like they have always known each other too.  Thank you for the honor of doing your portraits & for picking up like we never left off.  {{Hugs}}
