I love, love everything about this image, so simple, yet it says so much. Beautiful.
I love a good cake smash session to celebrate the first year of a child's life. It is exciting and fun. I always provide the balloons based on mom's requests for the theme and colors of the party. The session can take place before or after their party. Moms and Dads like to bring props for the party theme or I can provide props to go with the over all style of the session. I will always do one outfit before the cake smash part of the sessions. See below a few of the images from previous sessions.
P.S. Cake smash birthday bash sessions aren't just for 1 year old, all kids love cake!
The other day I saw where this beautiful little girl that I have photograph so much over her lifetime turn 9 years old. I couldn't believe it had that much time really passed since I photographed her parent's together for their maternity session. To this day, this is one of my most favorite images from a maternity session.
I really enjoyed photographing this sweet girl for her senior sessions. She reminded me a lot of myself and the road that I had been on until I was able to take the reigns for my life and take over my future. Her smile just says it all. Best wishes to a great future full of out of this world experiences.
Hi Seniors! There are so many things to get ready for your senior year and senior portraits are at the top of your list. Without the portraits you can't complete ads for the football program, the senior pages in the back of the yearbook from mom and dad, sorority/fraternity applications require photos and the best part is you need to celebrate YOU.
Today, I want to talk about the myths that surround Senior Portraits. You hear these "facts" from so and so and they already had their senior portraits done by the school's photographer. I know, because I was once a "school photographer" for several high schools and I remember all the things that people use to say and ask about their senior portraits.
5. I have to use the contracted school photographer for my fun and casual portraits.
No, you do not have to go with the contracted photographer that is hired by the school to photograph the tuxedo and drape images for the yearbook. They are under contract to do no more/no less.
4. If I don’t use the school photographer, they will not put my photo in the yearbook.
This is a tactic that is used to entice you to use their services. This keeps you from searching for a senior portrait photographer that better serves your needs for what you would like your senior portraits to look like.
3. I don’t have time to use an outside photographer.
Sure it is more convenient to not have to shop around. All you need is a few hours in your schedule for the consultation, session and order appointment. Sessions are available on weekends and in the evenings during the week. I can even do the order appointment in your own home.
2. I have to spend $$$$ to get nice portraits done.
While custom senior portraits and products are specifically designed for each individual senior, we always strive to give you the best for your investment. We offer payment plans, as well as, accept all major credit cards.
1. I never look good in photos anyway.
Nothing is further from the truth! You have to make sure you are prepared for your senior session. At the senior consultation I will go over all the steps to help you gather props, outfits, and tips for make-up/hygiene.
If you are ready to schedule a consultation for your senior portraits you can contact us HERE.
Did you know that KOP offers complimentary business portrait sessions to returning veterans? If you are a veteran or you know a veteran in the DFW area that is in need of an updated portrait, please refer them to my website. I would love to be able to provide more Business Portraits for our returning veterans that are getting back into the workforce.
This cute couple became an even more beautiful family a few weeks ago and I was the lucky one to photograph their beautiful day! What an honor to see Teresa and Jeremy during their high school years and to see them become a family together. Stay tuned for a wedding blog update!
