The senior season has began and they are bringing it! Your senior year is here and it is your time to tell your story! Time for you to shine! Let me help capture your story and who you are in this special time of your life!
So far this years seniors have been a blast to work with! Looking forward to many more sessions this year. It is best to book and do your senior session during the summer. Why you may ask? Well there are many reasons. For one once school starts you will be busy with school works, sports, a job, ect. The daylight gets darker earlier and their are deadlines for yearbook photos to be in. Plus my books fill up fast! I only take on a few seniors are year. If you are wanting in don't wait! So much planning goes into your custom session. Such as outfits, location, special things you want to do in your session, are we traveling for your session, so much more!
I am here to help with that! I look forward to your senior sessions!
Here are a few favorites from this year so far! I can't wait to meet more of you and have some fun creating your senior portraits.
It's your story, let me help capture your senior year! This is a fun exciting time in your life. You have worked so hard to get here! lets Celebrate YOU! Each session is custom! We can travel where ever you like for your photos. You can include whatever you like such as hobbies, sports, friends, cars, trucks, pets you name it!
Lets go create something amazing!
Need help with what to wear? I can help with that too!
Baby smiles can be tricky and we may not always catch one. I have been photographing babies for many years. Since 2007 when I opened my studio I didn't know right off the bat that I would want to photograph newborns, but when I did, I just knew it was one of those types of session I wanted to specialize in. I love photographing many things and many different types of sessions. High school seniors are my 2nd favorite! Newborns just hold a special place in my heart.
I have had some ask me how do you catch that smile. Well sometimes it is just luck, others it is watching for the cues and waiting. Lots of patience as well. Babies take a lot of work at times.
You know that deep sleep where their eyes start to flutter, ya watch and you will get a smile. Sometimes if you touch or rub their forehead and down along their cheek they will smile too. I have sat and watched a baby for many minutes waiting and watching for those cues, rubbing their forehead.
I do love when I can catch a baby smiling! Just melts the heart and brings a smile to your face!
The last couple weeks I have had many babies in the studio and a lot of them have smiles during their sessions. Some have not. Babies run the show and you just never know. Here are a few of the ones I can share from the last couple weeks.
The baby with the Biggest smile is from a couple years ago that I added to the end of these photos. The baby on the pillow. He happened to open his eyes and give the biggest smile ever! That is one of my favorite photos of a baby smiling.
I know how scary it can be to be in front of the camera and top it off not wear much of anything! But ladies it is such a confidence builder too! I know we look into the mirror and see all our flaws-well ladies everyone has flaws and God made each one of us different and unique! Love yourself in all your beauty! You are Beautiful!
I have had so many beauties in the studio and they are on fire! I am not allowed to share everyone's images but these beautiful ladies have given me permission to share a few from there sessions. I still have a few sessions coming up and I have a few spots open if anyone is wanting in for a session!
I am planning on new set-bubble bath/shower set! So if anyone is up for that plus the type showed here give me a call to set your session up today!
These sessions can also be couples! It is not just for the ladies!
I used to offer these sessions years ago and stop doing them but I have decided to bring them back. For so many women it can be scary and you may think you can't do them. Guess what, you can do this! It is a hugh confidence builder. I got you girl! Do it for You! Do it for you special someone! But most of all do it for YOU!
*Now Booking Boudoir Minis! Special offer good through Feb 2023-after Feb the prices goes up to my normal pricing!
I have said many times I love working with couples! I am not into weddings at all but couples heck yes! I love it! So when Jazmyne came to me and asked if we could do a special session with her and her hubby-I was all for it! They never really had engagement photos and she wanted something a little different! Gosh it had been in the 100's all week and the day of their session it was chilly, rainy and way cool at 50 degrees. They wanted to be in the water! These 2 sure didn't mind the chill in the air or the cooler water! This session was fire! There are some sessions just light my creative mind and it makes it so much more! Thank you guys for choosing me to be your photographer throughout the years.
I have had many questions on what the difference is in the newborn collections. So I thought I would go over the different types of sessions and what they look like. If you have questions please let me know, as I am here to help!
I offer a Simple and Sweet mini newborn collection, a Little Moments, Precious Moments, In Home Lifestyle collection, Fresh 48 and Birth.
You are probably thinking gosh what comes with each or what does a simple session look like compared to the Precious moments one, and what is a lifestyle session? Well I am here to help answer those questions for you.
The birth package is me in the hosiptal with you during the birth of your new baby. I capture those first moments before, during and after birth.
A fresh 48 is done within the first 48 hours of birth and done in the hosiptal.
Simple and Sweet session is just that. Simple and focus on baby-no props, less posed and we only use cream, white, grey or black. The focus is on baby! Clean and simple! This type of session is only 30-45 minutes.
I hope this helps you decide what type of session is best for you and your family. If you are having a hard time deciding give me a call and we can chat! I can help you! I want this to be a smooth relaxed enjoyable time!
So what is a posed session you ask? The posed is a popular session. It takes longer, baby is posed and we use props. We plan a custom session, so you get to use all the colors you want and props. Well we pick a few colors per session and up to 3-4 props depending on if you are doing the middle or deluxe package. With the deluxe the sibling/family images are include. The middle package you can add sibling/family for extra fee. The deluxe is the most popular package.
In a posed session we do many different poses: I start on my table and do about 6-9 poses, then we do 2-4 props and at the end we do sibling/family if you are doing the deluxe or adding it to the middle package. You can bring special props with you as well.
Here is what a posed session looks like.
Lifestyle sessions are done in your home and are less posed as well. They are very relaxed and focus on you and your new baby. It is kind of like a day in the life of You and your family! WE can use your nursey, your bedroom and livingroom. Don't worry about your house being perfect or really clean-the photos will not show that!
Here are a few samples of a lifestyle session.
Please give me a call to chat about your newborn session and what is best for you and your family!
I look forward to planning and capturing your new little one!
When you include something special or a special location that means something to you and your family, the photos are even more special! Remi and his mom wanted to include a piece of their land that has been in the family for many years. This amazing tree that Remi's great great great grandfather planted. How cool is that... We also include some of his hobbies, and went to the spot his parents got married too! I can't wait for his 2nd session!
I love to include things that mean something special to YOU! It makes the session and photos more memorable.
It is always so fun to go to new places, see new things and photograph my clients in these neat places! Thanks again for choosing me to capture your senior portraits.
Oh what a pretty young lady Hayley is! We had so much fun running around downtown finding new little spots for photos! Hayley was very shy at first but came right out of her shell and had a great time! I really love her hair-the color the style! So perfect!
I just loved her whole gallery! Here are a few favorites.
Hayley I hope you have a blast this year! Thank you so much for choosing Sunshine Photography
Oh this sweet, sassy little beauty is a senior... I can't believe it. I remember her when she was in diapers! Your babies sure grow way to fast! This pretty young lady is graduating a year early. Way to go girl! You are a rock star! Thanks sweet lady for running around downtown catching little toads, and dealing with my craziness. I wish the best and brightest future!
