Father’s Day Mini Session

Over the years I have recreated a Father’s Day present for JDubbs to show how our kids have grown over time, and it occurred to me that perhaps others would want to get in on the fun as well!  After all, I have the letters, and a beautiful town for photos!  So why not do another round of mini sessions, this time in celebration of Father’s Day? Father's Day Collage 5 PicMonkey-Collage

 Below are the details to take advantage of this very special opportunity!

The mini sessions will take place Saturday, May 30th (with a potential rain date of Sunday, May 31st) and Monday, June 1st (with a rain date of June 2nd) from 5-7 pm in Quechee.  I will be in an assigned spot and you will meet me there at your appointed time.  Each slot will be 15 minutes and will be portraits of your loved ones holding the light blue letters D-A-D and one group shot.  You will be assigned a time slot for which you cannot cancel or miss.  Once you sign your contract, you are obligated to pay the $40 fee or find someone to fill in for you if you cannot attend.  Your slot cannot be rescheduled.

Here is what the package will entail:

 – One 15 minute session

– 4 full resolution digital images for you to print at your leisure sent via digital download.  We will spend the last few minutes of the shoot selecting your images to edit.

– The opportunity to make a la carte purchases from the Rebecca Whitney Photography gallery, including digital downloads, until the end of June 2015.

$40

The slots will be filled in the order in which people responded to the Upper Valley Kid Swap post, first come first serve.

I am looking forward to working with you to create lasting gifts that your loved ones will cherish for a lifetime!

Spring Mini Sessions

I finally finished editing all these gorgeous families’ photos from my Massachusetts mini sessions.  We had amazing weather, wonderful light, but best of all, lots of fun!  I captured so many sweet moments between families, siblings, parents and children.  Looking back on them makes me proud and happy, and perhaps gives me courage to doing it again sometime!  It’s definitely a lot of work, but with these darling faces, so worth it.

I get to meet these little bundles of heaven and watch as their parents get to know them, cherish them, and love on them like crazy.

The babies are pretty fond of their mommies and daddies, too.

Family Photography Love

I am knee-deep in editing my mini sessions from a week ago, and I have been lucky enough to finish a gallery or two, with several more to go.  So I may be a bit more absent from the blog than usual, but it’s all for the love of photography, especially family photography, which speaks to my soul.

I was lucky enough to photograph this beautiful family for the third time, and you know I love them so much because I highlighted their last shoot in my Tips For A Successful Family Photo Shoot post.  I always look forward to working with them because their love for each other is just palpable, and they are professional life-lovers–always stopping to enjoy the moment, explore the world, and most wonderfully, they almost forget I am there.

They’re also naturally affectionate, which is one of my favorite qualities in a photography subject!

One of my favorite things to ask families to do during their photo shoot is to tell someone a secret and to have a dance party.  They force people to be connected, touch, and almost always guarantees a smile.  These two were no exception!

Welcome, Baby O!

Once I decided that my real photographic passion was for lifestyle photography, I breathed a huge sigh of relief.  Taking the kind of photos that I love–the kind that capture families as they are, experiencing life as they live it, with all its beautiful dynamics for the world to see–is a real pleasure.  And photographic a very brand new, perfect little baby in all his delightful glory is exactly the kind of photos I want to be taking.

Capturing a family with a new baby can be hard in the winter and early spring; it’s just too cold to go outside.  And when the day for me to photograph this little guy arrived and it was snowing out–well, at least I knew the light would be soft and bright, but I also knew we’d be inside all morning.  It’s always a crapshoot walking in to someone’s home and hoping for the best as far as light and temperament.  In this case, even with a two-year-old brother in tow, it was blessings all around.

This newly christened big brother was a dream.  He was interested, adorable, even-tempered and was obviously so very well loved, it was easy to photograph the new brother dynamics!

Second time parents are usually laid back, but this particular pair was so easy to be around.  They were so comfortable and happy in their own skin, grateful for the beautiful chaos and just happy to all be together.  All I had to do was sit back and enjoy the show.

Little moments, big emotions.  That’s what I love about photos like these!  Congratulations, T Family! You have two wonderful boys!

The Beauty In The Everyday

Ever since I admitted to myself who I am as a photographer–a lifestyle photographer who captures everyday moments and who is happiest appreciating the smallest details in life–I have felt such a pleasure in developing that style and not feeling like I have to be something I am not.  In turn, my Inspired Life 365 Project has given me ample opportunity to practice this style indoors and out, in all kinds of light and with a real variety of subjects.  A lot of the time I have an idea about what type of photo I want to shoot on a given day, but some days are more difficult than others.  Looking back on the past two months’ photos, I realize I have a tried and true subject that I fall back on when nothing else jumps out at me: capturing Little H while she naps.  And I’m okay with that.

At first I felt like I was cheating, doing the same subject more than once.  But now I realize, this is a challenge!  How many ways can I photograph the same child in the same crib in the same cluttered bedroom?  What perspectives can I shoot?  What different editing styles can I try?

IMG_5878 IMG_5877 IMG_5879

It’s actually giving me a bit more confidence as a few indoor shoots loom on the horizon in March, and it serves as a good reminder to me that parents love photos of their kids just as they are.  The way they sleep, the way they eat, their crazy smile or their tiny toes.  People want photographs to remember every stage and every child, how they were unique and especially theirs.  Like how a baby might sleep with their butt in the air.  Who would want to forget that?

It’s not cheating to photograph the same thing over and over.  It’s finding the beauty in the everyday.

Perspective

I knew where I wanted them to sit. I thought I knew from which angle I was going to shoot. I gave them two of my necklaces to keep them occupied but then suddenly, watching the two of them interact, all my plans when out the window. I just kept clicking as my girls giggled, talked, and admired their necklaces, and when my older daughter told the baby to look at the world through the prism of her necklace, I knew that the perspective I had been looking for was theirs.
