Christmas Mini Sessions for Charity

xmasminis

November 22nd and Saturday, November 23rd, I will be holding Christmas Mini-Sessions at Abbey Lane (a children’s boutique).  These Christmas-theme sessions will feature twinkle lights and snow!

The best part?  50% of your session fee goes to Charity!

The session fee is $40 for one child and $10 for each additional sibling.  You will get a 10 minute photo shoot of your little one(s), and 2-3 digital images emailed to you in one week (one additional image per additional sibling).

This shoot is for babies and children only; sorry, no parents!  If you’re looking for a family photo for Christmas cards and such, give me call or email about setting up a session just for your family :)

I would recommend wearing something red or green to go with the Christmas theme.  The background will be white, so the only color I don’t recommend is a white or very light color.  If you need a special outfit for photos, Abbey Lane is a great place to look!

There are just 16 spots for this event, and I am only accepting reservations in advance. Last year the spots sold out, and the best times were gone lightening fast! Click here to reserve your spot today.

fine art albums

I absolutely could not wait for my album to arrive in the mail… I took a leap and tried a new album company that looked like exactly what I was looking for.  But I had never actually seen one of these albums in person.  Only through online pictures, but it looked oh-so-perfect in pictures.  In the weeks that I waited for this album to arrive, I seriously had dreams about  getting the album, opening it up, and it being perfect!  This is quite literally the album of my dreams!

When it arrived for real (not in my dreams) it was….perfection!  It was everything I dreamed and imagined it could possibly be.  I am thrilled and proud to offer a new line of fine art albums that I think are just awesome!  And I can proudly say that I have sampled hundreds of albums at conventions and photography expos – and THIS is the BEST album I have ever laid my hands on :)

These albums come in 20 pages or 30 pages, and can have a custom image cover (as shown) or a leather cover.  The images can bleed straight across the pages for a beautiful landscape image that makes a statement (aka gutter-less pages).  The pages are extra thick and  very durable, feels like a board book.  This album is perfect for families that have little space for wall portraits, but want to cherish their images from a newborn session or a baby’s first year :)

Decorating my Home with Family Photos

Posted in Baton Rouge Baby Photography, PhotoBella Photography News on March 7th, 2013 by kelli – Be the first to comment

When I was in college every time I moved apartments I would go down to the Hobby Lobby or a similar store and buy prints of generic art to decorate my new apartment with.  They were just whatever prints I found that day that looked better than the others.  When I was done I always felt like my apartment just didn’t look as stylish as I imagined it would be.  I was never very happy with the results.

As I got older, and the apartments turned into a home, the stores I shopped at might have stepped up from Hobby Lobby and were a little more stylish and chic, but I was still never completely pleased with my walls.  I was trying to achieve the look in stylish design magazines, but it never happened… there was always something lacking.

That is, until my daughter was born and I discovered the art of photography.

When my daughter was 6 months old I bought my first set of canvases, and it changed my home design forever!  I have to tell you that when I started hanging my own family on my walls instead of art that had little meaning to me, it changed my home and how I feel about my home.I now have a collection of a metallic photo, various framed images of my bella and my family, and framed art created by bella in my living room.  This art collection displays everything I love.  It is special and meaningful to me.  When I look at this wall, I cannot help but smile :)

I also have square canvases in my hall of bella.  The thing I love about square canvases is that they make for an easy add on collection.  I have two canvases now, but as she grows I will add on more squares to show off every cute stage that I love.

I also have a 4 canvas collection in my office.  These are of bella when she was six months old.  She has grown so much since these photos were taken, they really show off her baby-hood.  I look at these and think, I can’t believe she didn’t have hair, look how long it is now!  Every now and then I have parents say that aren’t sure if they should buy a big canvas or photo of their baby because they don’t know what they will do with it when she grows.

I say that beautiful artwork of my baby is all the more special to me as she grows.  I’ll always have these cute, nearly bald, images hanging on my wall.  When she is 18 years old, I’ll bring her dates into my office and show them her cute face, her tiny hairs, and those big blue eyes!

Hanging photos of what I love, my family, on my walls has made my home warmer and my heart happier.  I’d love if you share your favorite artwork in your home below.
