Three years ago, I graduated from photography school and started my business! So much has happened since then; I started renting the studio that I’m currently in, I’ve purchased new equipment, bought tons of props, etc.! Believe me when I say it’s been a really crazy journey but one that I’ve been happy to be on! Thank you to all of the wonderful people I’ve met through my career, it’s been a pleasure working with each and every one of you! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Carey Crooker Photography!! :)
Ada came to the studio for her first birthday cake smash and you can definitely tell that she (and her dad!) had a lot of fun!! Cake smashes are so popular nowadays and it’s always interesting to watch them. Some kids totally destroy the cakes while others need a little help from their parents. I’ve even had kids in the past that disliked the feel of the frosting on their hands! It’s a lot of fun because you never know what to expect! When I do a cake smash session, I usually take ‘regular’ one year pictures before. This type of session can be done in the studio or outside! :)
My favorite time of year has arrived; senior portrait time! Here’s a sneak peek from the first senior session of the year! :) Below are a few tips for a successful session.
Tips for your senior portrait session:
1. Bring a variety of outfits. For girls I suggest bringing a combination of shorts, pants, and dresses. This will ensure that it will be easy to have a variety of sitting and standing poses.
2. Solid colors photograph much better than distracting and busy patterns.
3. Avoid clothes with big logos or wiring on them. You want the focus to be on you!
4. Choose clothes that flatter your body and you feel comfortable in! If you’re not comfortable with what you’re wearing, it will show in the pictures.
5. Relax and have fun!!
Meet the Madden family! I photographed them three years ago when I first started my business when they were a family of three. They gave a photo session to Chris’s mom for Christmas, which I thought was a great idea! In a short amount of time, we were able to do so many different combinations of pictures and I’m so happy with the way they turned out! :)
Well, it’s June so that means it’s time for Father’s Day mini sessions! I will be offering sessions until the 14th. Some ideas for these sessions include just the kids, mom with the kids, dad with the kids, etc. Some other ideas that I thought were really neat included kids dressing up like their dad. The kids were wearing their dad’s fireman’s outfit. Another idea is to have the kids wear dad’s favorite sports jersey! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
There are currently two specials going on this week! I’m offering the Mommy & Me mini sessions this weekend and during the week I am offering a brand new special that I thought would get lot’s of people’s attention; the free session special. Starting tomorrow and going until Friday, there are no session fees! Contact me today for more information! )
