Last week I got together with a fun military family! The dad was home on leave in the middle of a 1 year tour of duty overseas. This shoot? Was special.

The kids were great kids and the parents were relaxed and happy.

It truly was a pleasure to follow around this happy family!

2011 Year in Review

post signature

2011 was a wonderful year filled with beautiful people- inside and out! Let's take a stroll down memory lane and I will recount some of my favorite sessions of 2011!

In January I had the the opportunity to photography the beautiful Huerth boys!

In February I worked on my first boudoir shoot with Ms. Elizabeth!

In April I hosted a day of Spring Mini sessions!

I also went to Rock Hill, SC and worked with the Burroughs Family!

In May I shot the grand-prize winning shot for the Fugi-Film/Rite Aid Photo Contest with the Miller Family!

In June I traveled back to Rock Hill, SC to celebrate Anna's 1 year birthday!

 The end of the summer brought a few new babies, and this was one of my favorites!

When the weather started to cool down, the photo shoot calls increased. Here is the Brockway family in a Fall shoot.
And another shoot with the fabulously cool Boltinghouse Family!

Then in November there was an afternoon of Christmas Mini shoots! 

With around 50+ clients in 2011, the work was busy but so much fun! Thank you to all of you for helping my photography business grow with so many beautiful faces!

Examples of great family photo shoot outfits!

I'd like to take a moment to show off two recent photos shoots with families that planned their outfits out with perfection!

When I advise clients of what to wear, I tell them:

  • simple is best
  • no clothing with writing
  • use 3 colors, not just 2
  • stripes and plaids are great
  • crazy busy bold patterns are not
  • accessories (hair, jewelry, shoes) are JUST as important as the clothes

The Morgan family chose a color scheme of brown,denim and tan/white.  FANTASTIC. Especially for Fall! See how the their daughter has a fancy little brown hairband that matches the mom's brown shirt? SMART.

And I particularly love how the parents are wearing browns and the children are wearing blues. Great work Ashley! This is a excellent example of a great outfits for a photo shoot!

The Sherrer family showed off another great example of ideal photo shoot wear. Their color scheme revolved around red white and blue (see? Three colors always wins!).

Again, the parents went with blue and white, and the children are sporting blue, white AND red! Fantastic. Love the tie in.

And it just so happens that I had recently purchased a little red chair for my prop collection and it worked perfectly for the kids!

I encourage all of my clients to talk to me about their outfit options. I'm happy to come over and look thru your closet with you, or you can email me photos of your choices!
