Outdoor Spring Portraits For Schools

School Pictures aren’t what they used to be. Yes, yearbook pictures will most likely always be “yearbook pictures”, but in the spring your school has so many options to choose from. If the weather is nice and if your school has an ideal location, then outdoor spring portraits are a wonderful option. These images were taken in the spring of 2011 at a local Chattanooga school with a beautiful courtyard. The setting was absolutely perfect for these images. Here are just a few of my favorites. I could have added so many more images. All images below have been published on my website with permission.

Just wanted you to know that the 8th grade photo you took of my daughter at GPS two years ago remains my favorite photo of her to this day! I was so disappointed when she missed getting another taken by you last spring, and will remind her over and over next week to stop by for a 10th grade photo. I am so picky about photographs of my kids–I’ve sent the LifeTouch photos back for a refund two years in a row!–so being this excited about your photos says something, though what exactly, I’m not sure! Thank you for taking the time to make our girls comfortable. It shows in all these girls’ faces, not just my daughter’s.

Thanks so much, Eve! I appreciate the sweet comments. I will look forward to seeing your daughter next week.

My Kind Of Scrapbooking!

About 10 years ago I was an avid scrapbooker. As life got busier, scrapbooking just wasn’t an option for me. Life is still very busy, but I don’t have time to do the traditional scrapbooking nor does my brain have the imagination to create extravagant pages. For the past several years I’ve been trying to come up with a system that works for me and my families lifestyle. I finally found THE program that works for me. You might could say that the program found ME! A photographer friend actually introduced me to the program. The program is called Fotofusion. Here is the link to their website if you are interested
(copy and paste the link into your browser. For some reason the “link” button in WordPress isn’t working today)
Just like with any other program there is a learning curve, but once you watch the video tutorials and play around with Fotofusion you will soon realize how simple it is to use.
There is a trial version to download if you are interested. That’s what I did before I invested $89 in the “enhanced version”.
My style of scrapbooking is simple. I like all the embellishments that avid scrapbookers add to their images, but I also like a very clean look (maybe just adding the pictures and simply the date).
Here are a few pages that I quickly created using this new software.
I’ve created all of these to be 12×12 photo pages. I will print them through my professional lab then place them in a 12×12 photo album that has side or top loading plastic sleeves.

Another Successful Preschool Photo Session!

This morning I photographed at a local preschool and got some cute shots of this little fella! This little “fella” happens to be my cousin. Photographing preschools is definitely hard work, but extremely rewarding. Hope you enjoy these pictures of Cooper! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nashville Photo Shoot

This past weekend we got to spend some time with some old friends in Nashville. These are the kind of friends that no matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen each other, you can pick up where you left off just as if you saw each other yesterday. It was so nice to get together and laugh the time away. My husband Chad actually went to high school in Panama City with the parents of the kids in the pictures below.
We’ve been trying to get together for a while for a photo shoot, but it’s been difficult to work into the crazy schedule. It finally worked out! These guys/gals are all cousins and were so much fun to photograph. They were troopers let me tell ya! The wind was blowing about 25-30 miles an hour so it felt a lot colder than it actually was, but I think we ended up with some fantastic shots for our friends! ๐Ÿ™‚
