Okay, well, 6 if we include Roxy, their 'spirited' dog!
So when Katie contacted me, she originally wanted just pictures of her boys. I said no problemo! I told her though, that I might not be able to contain myself and that I may have to take a picture of mommy and daddy at some point too (sometimes, these candid moments of just 'being' there with your kids make for the BEST pictures!). So a few weeks went by and we touched base again. She had a favour to ask. "We're expecting and would like you to do the big reveal", and in Katie's words , I thought "Shut the front door"! I would LOVE TO! Because as we all know, nothing is really ever official, until it's graced us with it's presence on facebook:)
With saying this, we had fun. The boys romped around, Roxy got some good exercise in and mom and dad were just plain 'ol fun to work with.
I wish them all the very best, and was so very thankful to be apart of this special experience! THANK YOU!!
What a sweetheart this one:)
He sure was raring to go when I got there (and when I left a few hours later). But with saying this, he was the most well behaved newborn I've met to date! He just wanted to be aware, and present. Poor mom so badly wanted a sleeping newborn pose, but I loved his expressions and beautiful gaze, I wouldn't have changed it, that was him:)
And of course, the moment I left, he fell right asleep:)
I had such a great question today by a potential client, and I thought I could share this with all of my followers for their own knowledge!
The question asked was "Will you be able to give me the unedited images, I would love to have them?"
Why not, right?
Photography is really a work of art, isn't it. It is fine tuned to the artists eye, and delivered to his or her own level of standard. Because clients typically don't spend their time editing their own photos with such programs as Lightroom or Photoshop, they aren't aware of what really is involved. And that's why we have the pleasure of working with you, because you want something above and beyond the norm, something better then your SOOC (straight out of camera) images.
I probabley spend MORE time in post production editing, then I actually do shooting the images. But this is why you must value the process and the costs associated with any of the packages offered.
It's really a magic show people! Have a look:)
I like to see SPARK in peoples eyes, I like to see AMPLE colour, and if I can clear up any blemishes that have 'conveniently' popped up the night before a photoshoot, I will:)
I hope I've educated you in the understanding and process of post production!
Aww...this lil gal stole my heart right away! I just knew she wasn't going to give me any guff. Yes, I said guff. She just went with the flow, and I was able to capture some amazing moments:)
And as per, mom and dad were yet again so very amazing:) As if you remember, I just did their maternity shoot not all that long ago! How I just love working with that couple:)
Thank you for letting me capture some amazing moments of your beautiful baby girl:)
