When the owner of Brava Hair Studio in Fort Walton Beach told me that her daughter was pregnant, you know my shutter finger got a bit twitchy. I’ve been going to Lisa for years now (if you are looking for an amazingly talented stylist, I highly recommend her!) and was certainly hoping they’d consider me for newborn portraits. As the pregnancy progressed, I was thrilled when they said they wanted me to do them! Baby Aubrey arrived almost right on schedule and was a healthy 7lbs, 10oz! Not only was she deliciously plump, she is quite possibly the pinkest baby I’ve ever seen! She slept like a dream and we had so much fun in a very short period of time. Couldn’t have asked for a better session.
Looking forward to all the babies coming up in the next month – sure hope you love seeing them as much as I love sharing them!
Here are just a few of my favorites (you can see even more in her album on my Facebook page):Read More»
It’s always such a joy to meet new folks visiting the Emerald Coast on vacation. This couple from Tennessee was no exception – we all had a lot of laughs!!!
At the risk of repeating myself, to be able to document a small piece of the journey to motherhood for the 2013 Newborn/Mommy Representatives is an incredible honor. The first baby has arrived! At just over 6lbs, he was just an itty bitty. So sweet. Welcome to the world, Mr. Cameron!Read More»
I am honored each and every time an expectant momma contacts me to book newborn photos. When this expectant momma contacted me prior to the family’s relocation back to the Emerald Coast, I was also crazy flattered. She’s an uber-cool artist, and just about the nicest person you can imagine. We met up late last week for a family materinity session. Once again, my bag-o-gummies saved the day with their adorable little girl. Maybe I should change my business name to “Gummy Bear Photography”. Whatcha think???Read More»
One of the most frequent questions I get when people try to order prints of their own pictures is why portions get cut off when they try to print an 8×10. I think this is one of those topics best explained with visual aids.
Depending on your camera, you are taking pictures with specific aspect ratio. This is the relationship of the height to width of your image. My camera takes pictures at an aspect ratio of 2:3. This size image translates exactly to print sizes of 4×6, 12×18, 16×24, 20×30, 24×36 and 40×60 (and I actually know someone who has a 40×60 canvas hanging over their mantle!). When people start looking to order sizes other than these, the image starts to become more “square” and portions of the image are left off of the print. As you change the size of the print you are actually changing the shape of the print.Read More»
