I was so pleased when Sara contacted to me to photograph her maternity and newborn photos!! It was such a honor when she said that she had been following my work and was excited to book with me. The weather was rainy which is typical for the valley but we managed to grab a couple shots outside of the studio…. umbrellas and all! Soon enough little Karter came along, and he is such a handsome little man. He was such an angel during our session, he slept when he was supposed to, and was awake when we needed him, overall he posed like a pro. I was excited to get so many great shots!!
I love this shot of Sara! She had such a cute baby belly!
This my first ever Tuesday’s Tips, I want to share and help!! This is for brides to be, families, moms, and learning photographers. Every week you can check here to keep updated on the Tip of the week. Well here it goes!!
If you’re getting family photos taken you know finding an outfit for the whole family is a huge task! Everything has to be perfect, the colours, is there a pattern, are we too matchy?? Ahhhhh! It can be overwhelming. Here are a couple of tips when picking your clothes for the shoot.
Be inspired by the season you are getting them taken in.
Pick a key colour that pops, and that you would want to feature.
Accessorize! A scarf if it’s winter, a cute head band in the spring… etc…
Be aware of shoes! Yes! I will focus in on your shoes.
Wear what you are comfortable in, it shows in the photos.
Avoid logos, they can be distracting in your photos.
Don’t be afraid of colour.
Try to avoid super shiny clothes.
Stick to one style, casual, formal… try not to mix them together.
Over all have FUN with it!!!!
I LOVE these combos!! Something simple, yet has that pop of colour!
I love the colour in the clothes in these two photos!!! It really gives them character, they really stand out. I also really like primary colours!
Well that is it for this time! I hope this helps for our next session on what to wear. See you soon!
My best friend’s family is over from Australia, they made the long trip after being away from Canada for two and a half years. I was excited to take their photos as I hadn’t seen the kids since Justine was married. Justine and I became friends in grade six and have been very close ever since. She was my maid of honour when I was married and we have always been there for each other. Now years later we have kids, husbands and still remain besties!! I feel so lucky to have friends like them. Dave and Mel had a tight schedule so fitting in photos were important, we had picked the date well in advance. A day in August that should have been sunny and warm was not that at all! RAIN! So we went to Elwood Park, my trusty undercover park when it rains. We had fun, and the rain ended letting up. Enjoy your stay here Mel and Dave!
