Wow, word is spreading fast about our AWESOME studio! I don’t even know how many children we photographed last week, but I do know that I’ve never enjoyed myself so much! I just wanted to say a special THANKS to all the moms who are bringing their little ones to us! I can see in their faces just how much they trust us and I simply can’t express in words what that means to me! Choosing just the right photographer is a BIG DEAL to most MOMS, especially when their little one is still an infant…. I mean, they’ve been through nine months of pregnancy, read every “baby” book and magazine they can possibly get their hands on, they’ve spent a small fortune on just the right “outfits” and before they know it they have to decide WHO they would like to have photograph their precious gift! After all, it’s time to show him/her off to the world and they know that not just any photograph will do them justice 🙂 I completely understand because I’ve been there!!!

Now we’re off to shoot a wedding at Maria’s Vinyard! It’s going to be a GREAT DAY!!!

I get a ton of questions on lighting so I thought I’d offer a clear example of images using off-camera flash! I don’t use it all the time, but occassionlly you just want to have FULL CONTROL over where the light falls and on the beach is a great time to use it!
Here’s one WITH off camera!!!
Here’s an example of one without… I enhanced the color here, but notice how much less depth and shadow are here!
It’s still a great image though even though the flash didn’t fire!!!
another example with “off camera”
and my personal favorite!!!

That’s what her mom called her during the entire session! I just wanted to take a quick moment to share one of her images!
Her real name is Abigail, but I think she likes her nickname the best!

Bridal Extravaganza Q&A

I’ve been asked dozens of times if I plan to be there and my answer is a simple YES I will be there, but NO I will not have an exibit/booth… For those who are asking WHY, here it is:

A friend of mine who recently had a booth in a show told me of how disappointed he was that he really wasn’t able to focus on any one particular bride for more than a few seconds during the event. He was very disappointed because he wanted to spend quality time with each one of them and simply couldn’t! His frustration along with my past experiences with these types of events helped make my decision. I have a very nice “consultation” room at my studio where I prefer to meet on a more personal level with brides. I simply don’t think I can meet someone and have them evaluate my work, my personality and my style within the few seconds they would spend at my booth. I do think that these shows are WONDERFUL for brides as they are chock full of great ideas for their weddings. They will find the lastest bridal fashions along with lots of great decorating and planning ideas there!

I PREFER a much more “one on one” experience when it comes to meeting brides. I like to know that they are hiring me because they truly LOVE my work and not because they liked my booth better than the next guy… It’s NOT that I’m unsocial, it’s as simple as wanting to build a real relationship with my clients and not having their first meeting with me be so rushed…

THE GOOD NEWS is my work will be well represented at the show. I have an AMAZING wedding in Southern Bride magazine and I’m sure that every bride at the show will pick one up and take it home! I also have a beautiful bride on the cover of the new Wiregrass Bridal Directory and that will be a MUST for every bride as well… I have FAITH that any bride who truly enjoys our work will find it well worth their time in stopping by our studio (right here on Main Street) to see all that we have to offer. I’m also sure they will find our pricing very competitive to anyone else who does work as professional as we do!

Don’t be surprized if you see me wondering around the show floor though as I do like to see all the wonderful gowns that we’ll be photographing this year! I do LOVE a good fashion show! I do enjoy GOING TO the show, I just prefer not to be an exibit 🙂 -Cindi Kay
