Amber and her siblings took advantage of CW Photography Designs, "Fall Portrait Special", to gift to their parents for Christmas. It's difficult finding that perfect gift for someone. Those perfect gifts all too often wind up in a goodwill bag, tossed in the back of a closet or stored in the garage or attic. We're all guilty of this, so why not give a gift that will be cherished and provide a lifetime of smiles and joy. A portrait session is the perfect gift for the holidays. Framed prints decorate and style the home but there are so many other ways to utilize a photo in addition to a framed print. Metal photo ornaments are great for stocking stuffers. Personalized photo coasters and calendars make a great conversation piece for the home or office. A gift certificate can be gifted to that special someone and their furry friend. We all love our pets and they sometimes are overlooked for portrait sessions until it's too late. My point is, support small businesses and in return, you save gas, money, time and your sanity by gifting a portrait session to that someone special and let CW Photography Designs take care of the rest.
I typically schedule portrait sessions during the golden hour but to accomodate a baby's schedule, we decided a morning session would work best for Keith & Alicia and their sweet little boy, Nathan. Towards the end of the session, Nathan was ready to go home. He did very well throughout the shoot but we couldn't get him to smile. With a smile or not, Nathan is such an adorable baby. I loved editing Alicia & Keiths photos because I would zoom into Nathan's baby face and giggle from his cuteness. We did get one huge smile towards the end as Mommy lifted him up high.
Grace and Herri's day began with an early morning tea ceremony at her parent's house. It's the first time I've captured a tea ceremony, it was an honor to witness such an endearing tradition. Grace allowed a perfect window of time for family and bride and groom portraits. As a result, we were able to capture so many beautiful photos of the two love birds. I know it will be difficult for them to choose favorites for their wedding album. The grounds had an autumn feel. The fall color of the leaves created a picture perfect mood for Grace and Herri's wedding day. A big thank you to Russel Snider for assisting to capture the day.
