Before & After simple edit

The goal as a professional photographer is always minimize my editing by “getting it right in camera”. I can say I have accomplished this goal with…CONFIDENCE.

YES there are some lighting situations that this does not always happen and there are also more creative images where this cannot happen. For the most part as a professional photographer knowing your light source, camera and settings is a MUST. So getting it right in camera will make your post processing much easier!

Here is a simple before an after. This baby had great skin so it was an easy example. The only difference on a baby with acne or blotchy skin would be more hand edits. The lighting and colors would remain the same.

Behind the scenes of this image:

Equipment: Canon Mark iv  , Sigma art 35mm, Alien bee (light source)

Editing: Lightroom -> Photoshop CC 17

Gorgeous & Handsome

What more can I say about this session? I meet this stunning mama when she arrived for her Maternity Session. I had no idea she was going to look like a super model with a belly bump. Not only was she gorgeous, she had a great personality and I felt so comfortable with her like I had known her for years. Her outdoor maternity session was beautiful and fun. The greatest moment may have been the 2 foot long snake that crossed our path, her face was priceless. I am just glad she didn’t go into labor. PHEW

Then I get to meet handsome, her new baby Jaxton. Her husband also handsome,  they are seriously a gorgeous family. Jaxton was perfect for his session, we incorporated some very sentimental items and even took family images. Take a look below and guess what his daddy does for work. I will give you a hint, I have the most respect for this line of work and it’s one of my favorites to photograph!

Meet Gorgeous and Handsome (x2)!

Summer Sessions began last month. These 30 minute sessions are a great way to capture your children and family. They are quick, and provide the highest quality images! What more can you ask for!?

This adorable family came last year for the fall mini specials and wanted a change of scenery! Summer was perfect setting for them. Their little girl is absolutely adorable so naturally I was really excited to photograph them again.

Please enjoy just a few of what we captured. Their gallery had over 60 images that I could not cut down so mom & dad had the privilege of selecting their favs. It was not easy!

Marine Corps Baby!

I have known his Mama since we were 12 years old. We went to Jr/Sr high school together and have always stayed in touch.  I have photographed her engagement, pregnancy and now her newborn session. When you get to photograph your old friends greatest moments you feel two things….Blessed and OLD! hehe

Her husband Chris, is a United States Marine, he is a true hero and I was honored to photograph him with his new baby.

During this session my daughter, Grace stopped by. When she arrived, and saw Chris her eyes lit up. ” A real life Soldier” I told her. I know they are not referred to as soldiers in the Marine Corps, but its much easier to call them soldiers to a 3 year old! So refrain from keyboard wars!  Grace told him what I tell her they protect us from “BLUE DRAGONS”.  I wish that was the case, unfortunately its not. Then I asked her to say thank you to him and she did.

We raise our child to respect our military, law enforcement and service members. She says thank you! She is not afraid of them, she loves them!

As you know by now I love these sessions, so I was very excited for this session. The icing on the cake was the fact that my friends father is a Massachusetts State Trooper, so we captured some for her father as well. It was a pure American Newborn Session!

I hope you enjoy some of the images ~Katrina
