I have had the extreme pleasure of photographing two sister’s weddings a few years ago.  Sweet lovely girls with adoring husbands and wonderful families!  What more can I say?  Now, they are sharing the truly amazing journey of parenthood together.  Their beautiful little daughters were born only a month apart and I can truly say that I couldn’t be more thrilled for these families!  Those little cousins are going to grow up together and develop the most special of bonds.  Some of my most treasured memories are those with my cousins!

I couldn’t have been more honored when these new mommies called to share their news and to book their newborn appointments.  Not only do I feel like “their family photographer”, I feel a connection with them by sharing in some of their most important family events.

Newborn photography is a lot about patience.  It may be the main ingredient to a successful photo session.  Our studio has all the props, blankets, backgrounds, wraps, hats and headbands….and we have lots and lots of patience.  Those little ones need to time to settle down, be hugged and cuddled, fed and changed.  All that is part of the process!  Feel confident when you are here that everything is about your baby and we will take all the time you need to get some truly beautiful photos of your little one and your family.

Newborn Baby on Saddle

I do have a large variety of props, wraps, backgrounds, etc. all for just for newborn baby photo sessions.  All pieces I know work perfectly for the newest little ones to create beautiful photos.  But I also love and encourage parents to bring in items that are special to them….pieces that reflect their families, special gifts or handmade blankies that will become treasured as baby grows up.   Those are what make your newborn photos unique and special.  In this case our new parents brought along their saddle and wedding dress!

(Saddle photo is a composite of photos, where mommy’s hands have been expertly edited in photo-shop to not show.  Safety for the baby is always then first priority)

You can schedule your newborn session anytime, but it is a good idea to plan a little in advance.  We will pick a date approximately 6 days from your due date.  We can then juggle it around depending on when your baby actually arrives.

When you book your session, you will receive a guide to help you plan for the best newborn photo session possible.  I have lots of tried and true tips that really will make a difference!

The Best Value in Baby Photos – The Milestones Plan

The Best Value in Baby Photos   The Milestones Plan photo

Yes, I do believe the very best value in baby photos is right here in Hazen.  No other year in your child’s life will fly by the way the first year does.  No other year will you see such dramatic changes in your baby as she learns to hold her head up, sit by herself, play patty cake, pull herself up, and take her first steps.   That’s what’s so great about the Milestones Plan.  The plan includes 4 sessions – every three months or so.  But it’s not so much about the dates, as it is about the stages your baby is going through.  And at the end of the 4 sessions you get a panel with your favorite photo from each session, documenting all those exciting “milestones”!

I understand that professional photography is an investment and sometimes difficult to fit into a young family’s budget.  I have been there! That is why I want to offer a great value to you!  There is no better way of preserving these memories of these very fleeting times than through photos.  I want you to have fabulous photos!  I want you to smile every time you see them.  And I don’t want you to worry about breaking the bank to have them in your home forever!

The Best Value in Baby Photos   The Milestones Plan photo

Each session is geared towards capturing a particular stage in your baby’s life – holding his head up, sitting alone, pulling to a stand, and walking.  Sessions take place in the studio and we take our time to make baby feel comfortable.  Sometimes its very quick and other times we have to be patient for just the right moments.  But you are never rushed.  Its always calm and unhurried.   And, if we need to just find another day, we do just that.  There’s never a charge for a reschedule.  We always work around baby and his schedule and mood.  That way you will have the very best photos.

Head Shot Special: It’s Time to Update your Look

Head Shot Special:  Its Time to Update your Look photo

If I did it, so can you!  I understand that it can be uncomfortable getting in front of the camera.  Really, I do!!  But it was time to update my personal head shot  photo and it may be that time for you, as well.  Whether its for business cards and brochures or your online presence (website, Facebook, etc.), keeping an up to date look is important.

As business moves to a more and more mechanized online version of itself,  your head shot is the first impressions prospective clients get of you and your business.  The first impression which could drive them to make the initial contact with you!  Your head shot needs to stand out and be distinctive against the rest to set you and your business apart.

Your head shot is not just a picture.  It is a portrayal of your business and your brand!  Take a look at your current photo and see if it conveys the message that you want your potential clients to see – professional, contemporary, competent, friendly, creative, approachable?

Give me a call and we’ll schedule some time to create just the image you are looking for!  It’s time for a fresh new look!

What a great idea this was!  Casey has been collecting basketball jerseys for quite  a while and his mom came up with the idea to display them all on the fence at the outdoor basketball court.  It took us a little bit of time to get them all hung up, but it was so worth the effort!  These could be my favorite basketball photos to date.

New and unique ideas for pictures are only a discussion away.  If you have a vision or even a snippit of a vision, it’s worth bringing up.  Usually it just takes a few minutes of brainstorming to refine it and turn it into something really great.  Talking through an idea and bouncing ideas off each other is fun, gets the creative juices flowing and is the best way to make your senior pictures truly something that reflects you.  And I love that!  I welcome your ideas and your input and I love trying something new.  So please, please don’t be afraid to just ask!
