Spring 2011 Newsletter

Spring 2011 Newsletter

It’s here!  It’s finally here!  Though it’s cold and dreary today, it is officially spring!  I’ve been gushing over patches of daffodils and smelling tulips.  I’ve been playing in mud puddles with my boys.  I’m just so excited for spring!

If you love spring as much as I do, now is the perfect time to schedule family portraits.  There’s bright, beautiful colors everywhere just begging for a beautiful family like yours to take a portrait with.  You never know when a storm will roll in and knock all those beautiful blooms out of the trees so schedule soon.  I have three available sessions in April and only one in May.

I wanted to give a few reminders…

Tutu Cute! Limited Edition Mini Sessions are April 2nd!  Designed just for little girls from six months to five years old, these mini sessions are full of girly cuteness that you cannot miss.  I’ve had a couple cancellations so there is still spots available!

I’ve spent the winter focusing on what I love most about photography and it’s capturing memories and personalities.  In the photography world, we call it “Lifestyle Photography” and I’ve written a blog post about it, “Lifestyle Photography: The ULTIMATE Custom Photography Experience”  In the past couple months, I’ve documented the love of an engaged couple, the joy of the mother/daughter bond, a birth, a birthday party and more. I’ve loved every minute of these sessions and can’t wait to get to know more families in 2011.

If you would like to remember your child’s birth or birthday through professional photographs, please email me at katie@katiesmithphotography.com.  I’m currently looking to add images to my portfolio from these two occasions and offering special incentives for allowing me to document them.

Love me?  Want to share your images with all your friends and tell everyone how much you loved your session?  I would appreciate it if you do and as a thank you, I’ll give you gift prints of your choice.  You can earn a Thank You print by getting 15 comments on your sneak peek, posting a review on my google place page, posting a review on my Facebook page, and by sending me a testimonial for website.  You can earn up to four free gift prints and a great big THANK YOU… maybe even a hug…. or maybe not, I’m not really a hugger… but definitely a thank you. lol

I hope your spring is full of happiness!  Thanks for reading!

PS Here’s some recent cuteness of my rugrats

Boys like jumping in mud puddles.

Boys like playing with sticks.

Boys like splashing water everywhere in the tub.

Boys like cheesing for pictures on their own terms.

Boys like going on safari with their goggles.

Boys like to climb on the top bunk and play with things they shouldn’t.

Boys like dinosaurs.

Boys are like dinosaur pillow pets.  A little scary but really just soft and cuddly.

This post was expected to be the last portraits of my boys in their 2010 sweaters.  I was using the 50mm 1.2L from www.borrowlenses.com and so excited to get portraits of them with that lens.  Instead, I got this.  Before I could even take a picture, Corvin had already found a mud puddle and covered himself.  That’s just life with boys, I guess.  🙂

Ok, I better let you know that this post is going to be picture heavy!  With a session this fun and a girl this cute, how could I possible not go absolutely overboard on the images?

I met 2.5 year old Miss K and her mommy in their home over the weekend.  She is so adorable and smart.   It was so much fun playing with her and watching her play with her dolls and books and purse and grocery cart.   So much girly perfection that I adored.

Originally, I posted this one in black and white on Facebook but I love the color just as much.  I saw this one in my head and she very nicely cooperated just the way I envisioned.I rented a macro lens for www.borrowlenses.com and couldn’t resist an eyelash shot.She played with her dollhouse.We talked about finger prints and she gave me a cute little grin. She insisted Baby have her picture made too.  Of course, I can’t resist a sweet request.She helped another doll play seek & find.We all took turns tracing each others hands.  We took some fun pictures with Mommy.

And this one is for me.  We were talking about how a lens cap is like a helmet for my lens.  So she was helping me put it back on.  🙂

Thank you, K and J for having me over!  I had a lot of fun and hope you enjoy your images.
