meet Lou…

Meet Mister Lou…He is Anna’s little brother and equally adorable!  This was my first time photographing a sibling (both as newborns)…and I was amazed by how similar they are.  I think it’s the cutest thing in the world.  Looking at both of their images from the sessions, their little mouths make similar pouts, their little noses are just alike, and they even both liked the same positions!  When photographing newborns, each one seems to have their own preference for positions.  Some of them like to be on their tummy, others like their side, etc.  Well, both Anna and Lou naturally laid in almost the exact same position.  Those sweet similarities make me think these two are going to be the best of buddies :)

Here are more of my favorite images from Landon’s Newborn Photo Session.  He was such a great little model that I ended up loving almost all the images from this session!

 

I am so happy I get to see Landon again for his 6 month and 1 year photos since he is a member of the Baby’s First Year Plan :)

5 What to Wear Tips for Families

Posted in Baton Rouge Family Photographer on July 17th, 2012 by kelli – Be the first to comment

What should we wear for our family photo session?  To match?  To not match?  What colors?  Ah, family photo sessions are a lot of fun, but sometimes it’s difficult to decide what everyone should wear.

Here 5 simple guidelines to help you achieve the perfect look for your family session:

  1. No matchy-matchy.  I know at one time it was popular, but please don’t all wear the exact same thing.   You do not need to go out and all buy matching shirts or sweaters.
  2. Keep it to 2 colors that are coordinating.  On the opposite extreme of matchy-matchy, do not all wear wildly different colors.  I suggest picking 2 colors that coordinate well together and everyone wears something from that color palette.
  3. Dress for the same season.  If one person is wearing a sweater the others should also be wearing fall/winter type atire.
  4. Let each person’s style show.  One of the great things about not matching is that each person can wear something they are comfortable in and something that fit’s their own style.  I love when each child’s personality comes through – it makes for excellent photos!
  5. Make sure everyone is comfortable.  Children that are stuffed into a too-small suite or dress do not act happy.  Before photo day, have everyone try on their outfit to make sure it fits and that it feels comfortable.  We want everyone to be happy and comfy on photo day :)

Here are a few of my favorite family sessions with accompanying their color palette. family photo session color palette

I am so excited to share an image of mr. Reese at six days old. He is so sweet and pure perfection :)

I was so happy that I got to meet Reese’s mom before his session for her maternity shoot.  I really love doing maternity and newborn shoots in combination because it gives me time to learn more about mom’s style and what she likes.  Reese’s mom loves creative shots, so we’ve got some really fun ones I can’t wait to share next time!

I am happy to share more from this session.  I had so much fun during this photo shoot.  Kendall was perfection!  You can see her sneak peek photo here.

This was one of my favorite sessions for a long while.  Kendall was just SO good!  And I just got word today that my photo lab would like to use an album I made from this session as a sample piece.  It made my day to get that email because it confirmed what I’ve always believed about this session – that it was special :)
