Newborn Photography

Pinterest is full of super cute newborn photos.  In every position, cute container, adorable outfit, it’s just full of these beautiful and seemingly easy to shoot photographs.  I mean you look at them and think, “The lighting is simple, the props aren’t hard to make, this should be a piece of cake.”  But if you think that, you’d be very WRONG!

It’s really hard to keep a baby in a pumpkin happy... 

I never intended to be a baby or child photographer, it just isn’t what I’m passionate about.  That is until I had a newborn.  Now I find myself trying to recreate every ridiculous cute photo I see.  And my wife is just as bad.  We literally took about 500 photographs over the course of 2 different days and counted ourselves lucky to have gotten a small handful of good photos.  Over the past two months with our new little bundle of joy, we have discovered and now expect a challenge every time we want to try a photo idea.  Kids are not always cooperative so we have learned to be patient and to cherish even a single decent photo out of the batch.  We’ve also learned and babies will be smiling and happy all day, until the exact moment you half-press the shutter button and bring them into focus.  But the challenge isn’t going to stop us, cause I mean, have you seen all the cute Christmas phot ideas with babies on Pinterest!!!! 😂😂😂

 

Here’s to the challenge and the hopes of getting one good photo! 

Its Prom Season!

High School Proms are the best.  So much excitement, the air is almost electric!  Students go all out, renting and buying clothes, getting flashy vehicles and limousines to ride to prom in.  Its a moment you definitely want to capture and save forever!

For my senior prom, my parents took pictures with a 35mm disposable camera.  And my pictures look terrible.  They just do.  I cherish the memories that those photos bring back, but the photos themselves are really nothing to look at.  Its a good idea to find someone with a decent camera (not a camera phone, seriously those are terrible...) to snap some photos.  If you can afford it, definitely hire someone!  In ten years, you won't regret it.  

If you need someone to take pictures for your senior prom, send me a message!  Proms are fun and we love doing them.  From pictures at your house, or at the event location, we can make it work.  

To all of my Terrell High School friends out there - your pictures are edited and on their way to print.  You can purchase digital copies with a release for $25 per picture or you can order pictures online by going to the site below.
