We have been blessed with so many amazing clients, awesome couples and adorable babies that we have decided to make a few changes around here to better serve you!
First we would like to invite new clients to stop in for a consultation before your session. You are making an investment in photography, and we would like to learn as much as we can about you, your family, your style, your home and your photography needs. Of course we will talk about clothing and the feel you would like for your session while you are here, so let me know if you have any questions at all! Our goal is to prepare in advance so your portrait session is stress free. If you are travelling from a distance, please let me know and we can set up a time to go over the details on the phone.
You will also notice that our product options and pricing have changed. In order for us to continue to offer the level of service and quality of products, our print and session pricing has increased. Clients with sessions currently booked and those online will still have our current pricing, but all new sessions will be booked under our new pricing. Give us a call if you have any questions at all regarding these changes.
To make the ordering process easier (and mom's life a little easier) we have simplified the print options available online. Our custom products and custom sizes are still available, just give us a call if you have any questions or would like a size not listed online. We will also offer archival CDs of your portrait session, complete with a custom case.
Yay for new products! We now also offer amazing wall canvas groupings, beautiful portrait albums, portrait session proof books, guest books and much more. Please let us know if you have something special in mind or if you have any questions about our new products.
One of the cool things about growth is being able to introduce our clients to some cool cats. We have three assistants helping us out this summer photographing weddings and generally being awesome. Watch our blog for a formal introduction to these awesome ladies.
In the next couple of months we will also be updating to a sweet new blog, and adding a site for Brent's model portrature, Kristy Studio Art Photography - KSA Photography.
Thank you again for choosing us to help capture your memories, we look forward to many more years of growth together!
We live in a great country. A free country. We have the freedom to worship as we choose, say what we choose, pursue our dreams and to be treated fairly no matter our race or religion. I feel very blessed to have been born in the United States of America. Celebrate safely everyone!
Jenny and Justin were married on May 8th at the People's Church in East Lansing. The weather was a little bit crazy, with rain on and off all day, followed by crazy wind and then sunshine in the evening. Don't let the warm tones fool you, it was freezing cold out... We were so happy that the bride toughed it out and I love the stormy images! Congratulation Mr. and Mrs. Morris, we had so much fun freezing at your wedding!
Newborn Emmaline Rose had the perfect mix of sleepy time and awake time during her session. She was even alert and smiling for the first shots, and out cold for the shots of her alone. The bottom image and the images with her little hat are some of my favorite newborn portraits ever. Her little lips pout perfectly and her skin is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations on your new addition Chetta & Alex!
Baby Aubrielle was so sweet and tiny! We actually had two separate sessions with her, the first with the entire family, and the second with just mom, dad and baby. It worked out great, although I had an idea to try and prop her up in the bag (yes it would have been super cute!!) but she was NOT happy about it, so we abandoned the mission, and set her down with her tooshie in the bag instead. I love the results and I cannot wait to see her again this fall!
Brent and our assistant Emily spent an evening at the gardens with newly engaged couple Erin and Derek. The two are getting married on New Years Eve, how cool is that. I am sure it will be an awesome party! Congrats you two!
Savannah is the beautiful daughter of good friends of ours. She was a little over five pounds when she came in for her session, and I could not believe how perfect and tiny she was. I love that we were able to capture a few little smiles from her, and that she let me try so many different shots while she slept! Welcome to the world little princess!
Outdoor sessions with boys are pretty perfect. Cameron loved to pick up sticks and at one point had three that he was carrying around. He was a bit shy at first, but had fun just exploring as we walked around the park. I tend to make funny noises and sing crazy songs to get their attention, so if you see me at a park, do not be frightened, that is pretty normal for me. Although if I am alone, you may want to call someone.....
When I started my photography business, I had no idea of the amazing relationships that I would build with clients, and how much they would bless my life. I also had no clue that through photography I would be able to reconnect with old friends from high school and be able to see them get married and their families grow! Little Ronan is the son of a friend from high school who I had not seen in about ten years. I am so glad that I get the chance to help him remember these amazing times and I was so excited to meet his awesome wife! Congratulations First family!
