{A Shot of Yeager} Phoenix Family Photographer

The Yeager family! Christina is the photographer over at A Shot of Yaeger and contacted me when she heard I was coming to Phoenix. Of course, I know how she feels! The WHOLE family (including her) in front of the camera is a rare occasion :)I was honored to capture this beautiful family! She has the clothing "what to wear" coordination down for sure! And they are all adorable! I loved our evening together!!

And of course, a portrait of JUST the photographer :) As I remind all clients: Please remember, you will receive a disc of your photos with no logo on them. Please do not crop out or hide logos (even when using as a profile picture on Facebook). Feel free to share these pictures, the blog post, etc… These are meant to hold you over while waiting for your disc – Encouraged use: sharing, using as profile pictures, tagging friends.. etc

Thursday Threads

My first post of Thursday Threads!! <3  So many people feel lost at what to wear for a photo shoot!This first Thursday Threads suggestion is geared toward a family shoot :) But can really be applied to other things as well I'm sure! Just trying to build a good base of suggestions for you to come to when you need inspiration when planning for your shoot :) One pointer many photographers will give you is this:  Not so Matchy Matchy! Coordinate! See what I mean? :)

Katie and Macey {Maternity and Child Photography}

Its about time I get a blog up on Katie and Macey! It took long enough to get a photo shoot in with these two! Last July - before we moved back here, I had come for a visit and done a shoot with Macey's little friend Emma... The shoot was planned to be of Macey and Emma, but Macey had a bad reaction to a mosquito bite and the poor girl had a big swollen puffy eye... so naturally mom decided to pass on a shoot at that time!When we moved back I know we had mentioned getting a shoot planned at some point.. and then finally - with only a few weeks to go before her 2nd baby's birth - we planned a maternity and family shoot... we changed dates a couple of times due to the weather, Then Katie got in a wreck and had a rash all over her face for a while... we played it by ear with weather again after that... and then SUDDENLY one day - the weather was clear and all was well.. Katie's husband was working but she opted to have just a maternity shoot and 3 year old birthday photos done of Macey ;) SO glad we fit it in!

She had her baby (a few days LATE) the next day!! Can you believe it!? Newborn shoot coming soon! :) Can't wait to meet Mr. Trenton!

Katie! you guys make perfect clients! The bond between you and Macey, plus Your beautiful pregnant belly and Macey with the patience of someone 10 times her age plus her ability to laugh hysterically on cue made for some of the most adorable pictures!

Here are some of my favorites! Can't wait to finish up this shoot and get them to you!! Most people dont get this many previews... JUST sayin!

My editing style is taking on a new process and I'm LOVING the results... So I have to share these!!

Enjoy!

New Set up!

So I've had my backdrop stand for a while... and have been dying to get some flooring for a very specific look I'm COPYING from my friend Rose :) She does little shoots like this - mostly of her precious daughter Jayley :) That I see and just LOVE all the time...Finally got my flooring and then our porch, which is the best place size and lighting wise to set it up on was wet from rain..... and we're on the fourth floor and anything we sluff off goes right into 3 other porches so i try not to do that. :) Today there was only a little bit of wetness left so i dried it all up - cleaned the space and set up! Brooke was willing to model because I told her i'd give her Heart sprinkles, a vitamin.. and/or raisins. She opted for the vitamin and heart sprinkles then when i was done with the shoot - she said that we weren't done because she was ready for raisins! lol. usually I don't give into such cute manipulation BUT she was willing to play and model for me a little more :) SO I went for it! I'm so excited to share what came out of it! Can't wait to use this on some babies!! :D Enjoy!
