capturedinHisimage Mini-Prints

August 2010

As much as I love taking pictures, I have to admit that seeing the end results is the really cool part of the process. Of course there are tons of amazing moments that happen during each shoot and excitement as I edit each picture, but there is something about holding the pictures in my hand that just make me say ‘wow’.

Last year I started adding ‘mini-prints’ to all of my packages. After the flurry of the photo shoot clients wait anxiously for access to their online galleries and for their captured package to arrive in the mail. This package includes several items one of which is a set of ‘mini-prints’. Each client receives 3-5 mini-prints, essentially 3-5 4×6 collages. These are perfect to stick in your purse or briefcase to show friends and family and the convenience is exactly why I started the program! Seeing as most photos are now digitally captured, more often than not we end up gathering people around our laptop to see our pictures instead of passing around a photo album. I love this, don’t get me wrong, i’d rather watch a picture slideshow than flip through a photo album. However, it is nice to be able to have a few hard copy photos on hand for the instances when you don’t have a computer readily accessible.

My goal with mini-prints is to highlight some of my favorite pictures from your session in a way that is really fun for you to share with others. Designing them, printing them and mailing them truly is one of my favorite parts of capturedinHisimage and I am excited to share a sample mini-print with you! Below is an actual image of  a 4×6 mini-print from the train track portion of  Nora & Tyson’s recent engagement shoot.

Thanks for reading this post, I am always excited to share insights with you and of course, your creative ideas are welcome! Leave a comment on this post if you wish =)

Harrison

August 2010

As you have seen, Harrison & Hunter are both very handsome boys! Harrison and his momma decided to submit his head shots for a worldwide agency model search. I was excited when we first talked, head shots are my favorite and it is rare to find boys who are excited to have their pictures taken. Harrison was so easy to work with, great in front of the camera and very comfortable, all ideal for anyone going into ‘the biz’ and definitely a breath of fresh air for the photographer . During the shoot Hunter also hopped up for some head shots and did great also! I wish both of them the best, the agency would be crazy not to go after these awesome brothers!

Boys will be BOYS, and how glad I am for that! On a steamy Sunday evening I met the Gorsage boys for head shots and family pictures. Nervous at first knowing that taking pictures is probably not a favorite past time for most teens, I was quickly proven wrong. These two were AWESOME, they had the perfect balance of adventure & obedience and thus, we got some rockin’ shots. It was also very sweet to watch them smile and laugh at their mom who stood next to me throughout the shoot, some of their best smiles came out when they were looking at her. More soon of Harrison’s head shots but for now, enjoy the great energy of their photos!

Dalton & Gracyn

July 2010

How do kids grow up so fast? It feels like just yesterday Dalton and I were getting our shoes muddy outside on the first warm day after winter. Gracyn is already 6 months old (lots o’ pictures of her this session), still a serious little lady but willing to crack a few smiles, especially around her big brother.  These kiddos braved the 100+ temperatures for some fun outdoor pictures at their home in Wamego, KS. The new bench made a debut and was very popular, especially with Dalton (when we could get him to sit down… haha)! Can’t wait to see these little ones again in the fall for more pictures, I am sure I will be amazed yet again at how quickly they grow up =)

Sneaky big brother... =)

I love Dalton here... such a little man!

Nora & Tyson- The Fairytale Begins….

leave a comment »

July 2010

Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting Nora & Tyson for a fun engagement session. This couple has such a neat story! They both grew up in the town of Herington, Kansas. “At first I really didn’t like him, and I let him know about it!” Nora shared. Now, years later, they are completely in love and planning a wedding for the summer of 2011. While we spent most of our time taking pictures at Linear Park (pictures coming soon!), it was only fitting that we started telling their story at the site of their engagement- Scenic Overlook.

Nora & Tyson- The Fairytale Continues….

July 2010

After reminiscing about Nora & Tyson’s recent engagement at Scenic Overlook we moved their session to Linear Park. Having not explored the trail area before, I was grateful for such an adventurous couple! They were willing to not only climb on the train tracks but also “off road” into the pastures surrounding the trails. Thanks so much Nora & Tyson,  I look forward to seeing all the places your fairytale takes you!

Baby Tucker, 1 Month!

July 2010

I am very excited to welcome another precious little one to the capturedinHisimage family! You may remember Courtney & Jason from their beautiful maternity shoot in late May. Well, Tucker has arrived! He was born on June 26th and they are enjoying every minute with him. He was very interactive during our pictures and really loved the warm air outside = ) It will be so neat to watch Tucker grow over the next year through my ‘babies in bloom’ package, thank you for including me Courtney & Jason!
