Snowy Photo Session – Oakland County Photographer February 13, 2013

These girls have been friends since they were very little.  What better way to celebrate a good friendship than with a photo session?  They gathered their hats and scarves, then boots and even some capes!  We headed out into the snow.  It was just perfect.  A few minutes before it was snowing really hard then it settled into gently falling snow, just perfect for outdoor winter portraits.  These girls were troopers as we tried out new spots, all while trying to keep their toes and noses warm.

I know I shared a lot but I had so many favorites.  Can you believe they even had capes to bring with them?  I was lucky enough to borrow the rose colored cape to use for future photo sessions.  I can’t wait to use it again, maybe this time in some lush woods when Spring returns to Michigan.

I’ve got another winter photo session to share soon.  There is still time to get one before Spring comes.  I’ve got my eye on some new locations for some great Spring sessions.  I’m always location scouting and am getting pretty good at finding some great unique places.  Email me at info@partoflifephotography.com if you are ready to talk about how we can create a special photo session just for you!  When you have a minute stop by my website at http://www.partoflifephotography.com  Thanks!

Two little cuties, Macomb County Photographer January 26, 2013

I’m catching up on blogging some sessions from last fall.  I met the mom of these cuties on-line.  She is the awesome creator of Busy Mom’s Slow Cooker blog http://www.slowcookeradventures.com/ and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SlowCookerAdventures.  If you have a crock pot or were thinking of getting one, you should check her out.  She has so many great recipes to offer!  Gotta love having dinner ready when you get home from work, or having it cook while you go with your life.

We met up for her photo session on a Friday evening at George George Park in Clinton Township.  I’ve always wanted to have a photo session here but hadn’t done one yet.  Such a pretty park for a family photo session, senior photo session or wedding party images! The two kids at this photo session couldn’t be any cuter!  Ella is such a doll and proud to be four!

family photo session at George George Park

Gavin loved to climb the rocks and explore.  His smile is awesome and oh my, those eyes!  Beautiful and blue, like his sister’s.

family photo session at George George Park in Clinton Township

You know I just have to share a few more.  This photo session was so much fun.  I think we all enjoyed the warm fall evening.  We got some family shots and more of the kids.  Now Mom and Dad have some wall prints and a 4×5 accordion album to show off of their adorable kids.  What a great keepsake of this time in their lives.

George Gerge Park photo session

If you are in the neighborhood, George George park has a great brick pavilion, a natural pond, a cool arty water fall, a fun playscape and a winding trail.  If you are heading to George George Memorial Park and need a photographer just let me know.  I’ll meet you there with my camera!

 

New Frame Vendor, and a sale! January 4, 2013

Just ordered a sample set from a new frame vendor.  They are having a sale right now so let me know if you are interested.  I’ll be able to bring these frame samples to photo sessions and in-person order sessions.  I love the look of these frames, the cool colors and the great prices.  And if you ‘like’ my photography page on Facebook and subscribe to blog updates you will find out when they have future sales, as I pass along sales from my photo vendors whenever I can.  I’m sure these frames will be great, they are from a sister company to my favorite canvas company.  My canvas company is raising their prices (sniff, sniff) but they have a sale through January 12th if you would like to bank one (or more!) for a future session.  This would work for past sessions too if you are really missing having one of your images ready to hang on your wall.  That reminds me, I need to take some shots of the canvases I ordered this year and post them here.  I love them!  If you’re not ready to commit I’ll just keep you updated when this vendor has future sales as well.

BBFrameColors

BBMetalI ordered 8×10 frame samples in Chocolate and Polished Silver.  I’ll also have a smaller samples of all the other colors on hand at my photo sessions, or any time you stop by the photo studio.  I also have lots of resources to help plan photo collections to your walls!  We could add on to a photo wall that you have started or start from scratch.  I’ve got many templates to peruse to help us out.  Soon I’ll be adding an exciting additional service (at no charge) that will be even more help at your next in-person ordering session.  Email me if you would like any more information.  Like I often do, I offer a discount for the client that tries out a big new advancement to by business so let me know if you are game for that one!  See you soon!

 

Sweetness! Rochester Mi Portrait Photographer March 30, 2012

He had his cake and ate it too, and even wore it!  This was cuteness overload for me.  Matthew seemed to know what to do and this time he finally didn’t crawl off full speed ahead!  At first he played around timidly then he got a taste and kept digging in.  Not a lot was eaten but I think he liked what he got and he really enjoyed playing.  By the time he was done he had crumbs in his curls and frosting between his toes.  Now to pick my favorites – this part if always the hardest!

This is when he tried to pick up the whole cake.  Ambitious little boy!

 

Cuteness, from his curls to his toes – Rochester Michigan Photographer March 29, 2012

This little guy started out adorable when I met him at his newborn session last year.  Then I saw him a few more times, including a fun session with his cousins from out of town and holiday mini-session.  Well, last week he showed up as cute as ever with a head full of adorable curls.  I love those curls and I know I’m not alone.  We had some fun with the radio flyer bike and some balloons then changed up the scene for a cake smash session.  Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing those soon!

 

 

 

 

Pretty in Pink! February 17, 2012

All right, she is pretty in every color but I thought it was a catchy blog post title!  I love when babies come to visit and this was no exception!  This little girl is three months old and full of smiles.  Little Lena was a doll, every minute of the session.  I could have held her all day.  We had some great conversations…  she would coo right back at me and had me wrapped around her little finger!  I hope I get a lot more visits from this little lady!  Uh oh, see what she has done to me with all the exclamation marks??  Thanks Beth for making the drive to my studio.  I hope I did not disappoint, although it’s hard to take a bad photo of this pretty little girl so I can’t take much credit.

 

Mini-sessions are here! November 15, 2011

I have finalized the details on my first-annual Holiday mini-sessions. Let me know if you want to set up a session, or if you have any questions. If you refer a friend and they set up a session I will give you a $20 credit. I was going to offer a credit for bringing in new “Like”ers to the Facebook page but it looks like that is against Facebook’s policies so I will offer that credit for referrals for booked sessions. These prices are only applicable on these mini-sessions, which must occur on or before December 4th, 2011.

I have both a red and grey backdrop to choose from, as well as cute props to go along with the set-up. You are welcome to bring any of your favorite keepsakes or traditional items as well. I can help you out with many gift ideas as well, accordion books, necklaces, ornaments, customs greeting cards, key chains, etc. Contact me and start a new tradition!!
