The Clayton Family in the Orchard….

Family sessions are starting to be my favorites.  Freezing these  fleeting moments for people with growing families is such a fulfilling job, and I am always honored to do it.  The Clayton’s were so fun to work with. They refreshed my spirit as a family and as followers of Christ.  Their love for one another is evident and that is something very special to be able to capture on camera.

Ava {the youngest} was the typical challenging 2 year old, but it would have been too easy otherwise!  Owen had some silly 5 year old boy grins, but that is just part of being 5 I think.  I love capturing the fake and real smiles at this age.  Alayna, their 8 year old beauty could seriously model, and her curls just kill me!  I didn’t get a bad picture of that girl.  Rachel and her husband Matt, were awesome subjects as well.

This sessions was taken in the alley way by my studio, and at a new location I mentioned in my previous blog post that has a beautiful lane and orchard.  Joyce Shupe has apples, pears, and peach trees, and graciously allowed me to photograph this session there.  I think the Clayton’s made some fun memories during this session.  I know I sure did.  Joyce even brought them a sack to take some fruit home in… much better then my typical smarty bribes.

After a family session, or any session, I really like to bring you back in to view your images with me.  Sure, you can do this at home in front of your computer in your free time, but I have found the many folks don’t know what they want on their walls and end up settling for 8×10’s and 5×7’s.  The goal of the viewing session is for us to narrow down your options.  You don’t need every photograph I take, and I can help you narrow down your options so you don’t feel overwhelmed.  After that process we can go through and find what you want to hang on your wall.  A lot of times I have a few options ready to show you, and if that isn’t what you want I can design something with you right there!  It just works out well.  I still do put them online for about a week after we meet for gift print ordering.  That way grandma’s and other family members can view them too and order what they would like.

Doing these viewing sessions has limited the number of sessions I can take because I am meeting people twice, but it has helped everyone feel satisfied {myself included} with the products and art they get for their walls. It’s a win-win.

Photographers: These guides are awesome, and so easy to use.  The Photographer’s Wall Display Guides have made my life easier and helped me make bigger sales.  I think She even has a new app for iPads!  You could meet a client in their home and have the displays ready to show them!

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you how that works.  This fall is going to be really busy because my family is packing up and moving!!!  {ok, about 5 miles away, but still… tons of work!!}  I am not taking on many sessions because of this move during my usual busy photography season.  I still have just a few spots open and I may add a big family shoot day to get in as many families as I can as well.  Thanks for understanding!  I will be up and running again late fall, and early winter.  Maybe we will get some pretty snow this year and I can do more snow sessions!  I would love that!!
