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! 🙂

We need information on Fall Preschool Portraits.

School Portraits (not school pictures)

Most photographers cringe at the thought of photographing schools, but for some reason (that I can’t explain) I absolutely love it!
When I was in school, my favorite day was always picture day. I obsessed over my smile in the mirror, made sure every hair was in place, etc. I KNOW how important it is to get good pictures of your kids and my goal for you (as a parent) is to see your school portraits and say “wow that’s not what I was expecting at all”.
Here is a student from a local school we photographed just a couple of weeks ago.

Hello Internet World!

Hello internet world! Welcome to my new blog! My name is Suzanne Lemery and I am a professional photographer, mom to two handsome boys (Dylan and Bryson) and wife to a pretty amazing husband (Chad). First and foremost I don’t claim to be any kind of writer that’s for sure, but I LOVE photography and that’s what this blog will mostly be about. I specialize in family and children’s on-location portraits as well as customized school photography. I used to photograph weddings, but it’s just not where my heart is so I stick to my comfort zone. Browse around although at this point you won’t find many posts. I do hope to keep this blog updated with the happenings of my business and family life so check back often or subscribe by e-mail. I’d love to have you tag along with me in my blogging world!

Sickness is all around!

It’s February and sickness is all around! Both of my boys have had a fever with ear infections along with other cold symptoms. They haven’t been eating well at all so I literally made them drink a kale smoothie in order to get some good nutrition in them. Dylan (the oldest) drank it with no complaints, but Bryson on the other hand ended up in tears.
