Prop / Photoshop trick for taking baby pictures in the snow

••Photographer tip: want to put the child in the snow without distracting props, but not actually in the snow??

Prop: Baby Gus is on a clean white bathroom mat that has a rubber bottom.

Photoshop: Just clone around the sides and if there is a color difference pic up the color of the snow and paint that color on a new layer in “color mode”

[Be safe with little ones, endangering their health for a shot is wrong This was a 45 sec session & it was really too bright for my little polar bear cub!!]

Fashion Shoot for Pagent / Formal / Bridal Dress Boutique

Working on one of my newest collaborations, that I am soooo excited about!!  Not only about the amazing high fashion formals that they carry, but also about working with the Ladies at Always & Forever in Fort Smith!  Just like my girl Tasha at Suite One, Stacey the owner of Always & Forever is my age making huge waves in her industry. Both of them are considered the “go to”  not just in our city but in our region.

Since I am a fashion photographer & a senior photographer, working with the place my clients already love, I couldn’t ask for a better fit.

2014 Senior Girl Session Style

2014 Senior Girl Session Style • Arkansas Senior Photographer

 

 

This session is a photographer’s dream! A client that completely trust your vision & encourages it!! This type of session doesn’t happen by mistake or on accident.  You need to participate in the pre-session!! Photographer’s are a visual people & so are clients, so a phone call with a word like “headbands, tribal, boho, freepeople style.. etc” helps but isn’t clear.  In the age of Pinterest there is so much out there to help you SHOW your vision better before the shoot.  make a moodboard of images and send them to your client, see what they think & if you can’t see their clothes in person before the shoot ask them to send pictures of the clothes they have and ideas they have, dont be suprised if they say “i dont have ideas i trust you” bc they must like your ideas already, they booked you!  Also if you want to try a couple new things like i brought the feather headpiece & the flower headband, be willing to shoot the outfit with out the prop first & then add it in after, also if it’s a bit daring like the feathers. Your client will feel more at ease seeing a shot of it on before shooting 20+ more frames. That confidence & relief transfers into the session, & you’ll find the posing much more fluid!

Shindig Paperie

I recently had the joy of FINALLY visiting my aunt’s boutique in fayetteville, arkansas.  The Shoppe is filled with the most beautiful paper, and adorable knick-knacks, that pinterest lovers would swoon.   Follow them on Facebook Here  ( find them on instagram!)

Their Bio:

“People ask us where we came up with the name. The fact is, Shindig was found at… shindigs. Brooke and Trisha discovered their mutual love of parties, paper, and planning while working together on children’s birthdays, baby showers, and holiday gatherings. Recognizing that in a world of e-vites, status updates, and tweets, some occasions call for substance and style, Shindig Paperie was born.

Our well-curated collection includes personalized stationery, greeting cards and gifts, as well as invitations for every occasion. We carry many unique lines previously unavailable in the area, sure to bring joy to the hearts of paper lovers. 

We make a conscious effort to pick vendors whose design and production facilities are located in the United States and/or who practice eco printing
methods with use of post-consumer waste papers, cotton rag or other sustainable substrates.”

Using “Oil Paint” in Adobe Photoshop CS6

 

 

here is the before and after – as you can see i used a composite image for the sky and even changed the direction of the sun. I feel like this is a good representation of how different some people see the world. When i saw the scene i saw the light coming off the gate, the way the shadow fell behind the tree, the shine on the field blade leaning against the trunk. the barns and their green pasture, the leaves that seem to frame the image. Next Tuesday see a step-by-step tutorial! Using "Oil Paint" in Adobe Photoshop CS6
