Back To School: 2015-16

Back-To-School season is here. Everyone has passed that very busy “first day” and all the photos and shopping trips. Now you can relax and look forward to open house night and fall school photos.

Senior Portraits, Holiday Family Photos, Themed Sessions all are popular in the Fall season.

Back to school also begins the holiday season activities for fall. The weather is cooling off and everyone is getting excited to see the heatwave that hits us during Oklahoma Summers pass by to be dreamed back up during the freezing spells that winter brings. But I am getting too far ahead.

Two things to consider right now:

  1. Fall Photos: These come in two varieties.
    1. The first is that family portrait everyone sends out with (or for) the Christmas Card season. Holiday portraits take time and energy to put together for a lot of families because this season is so busy. Back to school is over and then comes PTA; then Halloween planning; thanksgiving baking and Christmas cards (or holiday cards depending on your celebration/event); and then the yuletide shopping.
    2. The second is Senior Portraits. Senior Portraits can be done at any point in the school year but it is best to book them early. If you want Fall photos, you need to keep in mind the time change and when the daylight hours start getting shorter. morning and evening light are best if you are looking for an outdoor shoot. With the Oklahoma weather, we all know that the cold season can start anytime around mid October (or can wait until mid December)…IF you want an indoor, on-location shoot then the weather won’t really make a difference with regards to photos…however travel is still a consideration. Plan ahead and book early. Be sure to include the school activities you are involved in this year. 🙂
  2. Themed Photos: Why mention themed photos? Fall means cooler weather. Cooler weather means more outdoor, on-location comfort for those costumes that require a lot of layers and/or make-up. Oklahoma summer heatwaves can cause discomfort or at the least a bit of inconvenience when your theme requires layers of fur, armor, make-up, etc. Though you don’t want to wait for the winter months to set in either unless of course you require that white winter wonderland 🙂 though we can work on that during post process or during scene set-ups too.We would love to get together with YOU this Back to school season to have some photo-FUN. Give us a shout! You can find us on Facebook, online, or you can shoot us an email or text message. Come find us and book YOUR session TODAY!

Portraits

What is a Portrait?

Webster’s dictionary defines it this way:

1. a painting, drawing, or photograph of a person that usually only includes the person’s head and shoulders; 2.a detailed description of something or someone; 3. a way of printing a page so that the shorter sides are on the top and bottom and the longer sides are on the left and right.orFull Definition of PORTRAIT:     1 picture; especially :  a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face;  2 a sculptured figure :  bust;  3 a graphic portrayal in words

What I consider a portrait:

“a portrait is a fitting likeness of an individual, place or thing which portrays the subject’s personality, lifestyle, and/or character through a photograph or a painting.”

Portraits can be taken of a home or piece of property, person, or a pet/animal. We commonly use “photograph” instead of “portrait” as the word “portrait” is more personal.

Portraits are used to measure changes in the growth of children, to capture lifestyles, and to capture a special occasion which one or more would like to remember for all time.

We like to celebrate and share moments like:

  • Baby’s first year;

School?? What??

Wow! Where did our summer go? I feel like this year has blasted through time and is more gone than here…hmm.

Well, photos are great at helping you remember those memories that time passes in front of you so fast if you blink, then you might miss it.

School is a great time and a great place to create memories and yet we all look forward to holidays and time off….

Once school starts you know the holidays come quickly to visit…Fall break, then Halloween with its costumes and trick-or-treats, followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas, then the year is in review and we are all celebrating the NEW YEAR…wow! Time flew away again.

Speaking of fall and the holidays…everyone likes to send postcards of the latest family photo for Christmas….so call and let’s make an original postcard this year!

Also remember to book your senior photos early so you can choose the time YOU want. Events are also something you can have photographed if you wish! Call for more information…Let’s take some photos!
