Fall Portraits: What to Wear?

One of the questions I am most frequently asked by clients is what they should wear for their upcoming portrait session.  My response is always the same:  pick a color palette of two or three colors for outfits, be sure to accessorize and most importantly…be comfortable!  I know this advice can still leave clients with a lot of questions, so I thought I would put together some outfit inspiration for the upcoming Fall season.  These are great examples of how you can blend a palette of colors to make them work for the whole family without being too matchy-matchy.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons for family portraits because so many accessories can be incorporated: scarves, hats, jackets, jewelry, etc.  These details add interest, depth and texture to your portraits.

 

 

 

When I am looking to put together outfits for my own family, I usually start with the kids.  I will choose a bold pattern for one of the children and pull colors from that pattern to determine the color palette for the rest of the family.  I often find it easier to look for outfits at stores that cater to the whole family like Gap and Old Navy where you can dress everyone head to toe without breaking the bank.

 

My Fall calendar is filling fast and I’m looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces as well as some new ones.  Happy shopping!

 

2012 Holiday Card Designs

It’s that time of year again!  It is so hard to believe that the holidays are already upon us, but they will be here before we know it.  So check one thing off your list early by ordering your holiday cards!

The gallery below shows the card designs that I am offering this year.  All cards are 5×7 press-printed flat cards that are printed on a high-quality heavy cardstock.  All designs are customizable and personalized and most can also add 1-3 photos to the back of the card.  Cards come in sets of 25 for $35.  Orders will be accepted until December 7th to ensure delivery before the holidays!

 

A little update….

In an effort to make my site a little more streamlined, I have created a separate tab on the main menu above for Client Galleries.  All galleries are still password protected and the passwords are still the same.  One new change is that the galleries will only be available for 90 days.  You can still order prints or products beyond that time, but your online gallery will no longer be available.

I am also vowing to post more often!  Sometimes I forget to share my session favorites on here and only post them to Facebook.  So from now on I will try to remember to post them here.  It’s been a crazy, busy summer so perhaps my next post will be some of my favorites from my summer sessions.

My Fall sessions are booking up fast and right now I only have a few weekends still free.  I am considering doing Fall mini-sessions some time in October or early November.  I am hoping to take my last sessions for the year at the end of November since my normal turn-around time is about 2 weeks and I know everyone wants their portraits in time for the holidays.  Hopefully these next few months won’t fly by like the summer did!

Stay tuned for lots more posting and updates!

New Year, New Website!

Welcome to my new website/blog!  I am so proud of this baby that I’ve been working on for the last month.  For someone like me, this was a huge challenge!  But I hope this new site will better showcase my portfolio and information about pricing as well.

 

One feature about this new site that I am particularly excited about is the new password-protected viewing galleries that I will be able to offer clients.  After your session, your photos will be uploaded to a password-protected gallery that will allow you to share your portraits with anyone you wish to share your password with.

 

I hope you enjoy taking a look around at my labor of love!
