The second season of colors. The world has blossomed and grown. The earth’s teen years of parties and fun have only just faded with that summer sun. And now, nature’s age of maturity….where were You when Autumn came?
The leaves turn colors, and change is in the air. Cooler mornings, fog, mist, pumpkins and day dreams of bon fires and football games!
Sports photographers can’t wait… Costume owners are in their busy season! And what about YOU? Where were YOU when Autumn arrived? What does this season have in store for you?
Costume shopping! Cosplay! Halloween Photos! Dress your best and let’s have FUN! Don’t forget…shopping, Thanksgiving, family time! Family photos! Preparations for Christmas cards! Family photos!
Family photos can be traditional or YOU can add your own spice of life to the session. Cosplayer? Let’s get photos out there that are YOU! that you can share and have fun with! Want a unique Christmas card? One that is ALL YOU?! Let’s do a session and create your own card for your own unique look to share with YOUR family and friends this holiday season!
This session was a lot of fun. Children don’t often have a long attention span before they are school age and sometimes this discourages people to take up projects like this one. Pets tend to have even less of an attention span…depending on the breed and personality. This young lady is a ball of energy and “Toto” was too. We did have a LOT of fun shooting and my little model loved getting dressed up to go out and play. 😀 Meet “Dorothy and Toto…her little dog too”.
Most teens are into horror movies, suspense thrillers, and the walking dead (zombies). Here’s a portrait of a crime scene or more to the point our project’s murder victim. The girls had great fun thinking this one up and getting the make-up done.
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.
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:
Fall Photos: These come in two varieties.
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.
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. 🙂
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!
I love a walk in the Nature Park in any season….but Autumn is my favorite season. As the season’s of life have past and changed, so have I. As a child, my favorite season was summer. I loved the adventure, not having to attend school, and the water! Swimming was life! Now if I can walk outside and enjoy nature in all its wonderous array of wardrobe…(colors)… I am content to enjoy nature.
There are things to see everywhere…though it seems as though few see them. I have a vivid imagination and sometimes one small (ish) thing in nature sparks an entire imaginary scene or scenario in the eye of the mind.
This tree and the month of October with All Hallow’s Eve just around the corner reminded me of all the pictures of haunted houses and bare spooky trees pictured in children’s story books. What would you see on an Autumn nature walk?
Share here in the comments section or post it on our facebook page! 🙂 Happy Haunting season!
Fall is just around the corner! this is a great time of year to have some FUN!
WHY? ( I am so glad you asked that question!)
The costume shops are just opening up and everyone is thinking about “…what they want to be for Halloween” or the harvest festival. There are several conventions coming up this time of year too. Visit “Tulsa Comic Con” November 7th, 8th, and 9th of 2014. Visit the “Phoenix Quest“ in Enid this November 22nd, 2014. Visit “Izumicon” in Oklahoma City October 31st through November 2nd.

Photo shoots are about YOU and about having FUN!
So find your costume, your favorite character outfit, or steampunk outfit and let’s get together. Photos are also for children of ALL AGES! (This means from newborn throughout YOUR entire LIFE!) The imagination should grow with you and everyone should have an opportunity for FUN! so…what are you waiting for??
September’s end brings in a new season….Autumn! I love the changing of the seasons. Fall has always been one of my favorites as an adult. The colors and the change in hustle of life during this season is a bit slower and yet full of vigor and excitement. The children love it because it brings Halloween, trick-or-treating and CANDY! Can you blame them?
As a photographer, dressing up around this time of year is a GREAT time to take photos that are unique to each individual who wants a fall portrait in costume or in regular every day outfits. The backgrounds are awesome at this time of year when the leaves start changing and different things start blooming…. and that is to say nothing of the desserts that come into season during the fall! 🙂
Call or email and get your Halloween or harvest photo session done today! And don’t forget to check out the local haunts of the season either!
Ok…so we are all tired of hearing about the fact that it is a new year and it’s time to make all those resolutions and goals …..which never quite seem to make it past January. Well, Misha’s Photography and Restoration is making a “new year’s resolution”. We need YOU to hold us accountable. You get the winning end of the deal so there is something in it for someone besides us! Yeah! That’s the good news.
So….what is this new year’s resolution we are making, oh ten days into the new year? Glad you asked! This year we are offering a monthly special or drawing. You will have to watch the blog for postings on what is happening…and by all means, let us know if you (or WE) missed something…can’t have that!
January is the month of resolutions and ringing in the “new year”. Well, post your resolutions here in the comment section of our blog. Each post then becomes eligible to WIN! …..check back with us to find out more! A new blog should be posted weekly!
I have to admit, I wasn’t until today….but some of what I want to shop for is from the Halloween era but spills over into Christmas ..which I can’t specify at the moment cause it will give away the gift I shopped for today…if I haven’t done so already. 😛
Now is the best time to still get it done early! You see, Christmas stuff is out and the stores are still trying to make room for all the merchandise that will be coming in for black friday….and the malls are NOT crowded YET! Photos also make a wonderful gift. If you have some fun photos and would like a collage made for that unique gift…we can do THAT! What ever you have to shop for and whom ever it is for….Have a wonderful holiday (Christmas! or whatever you happen to celebrate this time of year!)
I know you are probably tired of hearing me say that but it is so true. It is the time for fun and lots of events are taking place. Check out Haunted Castle at the Castle of Muskogee. I love costumes and photos and people! This is the perfect time and place for both!
Numerous costume parties, chances to dress up with your friends and visit the castle of Muskogee (costumes are not required–but that is part of the fun in my opinion!), good food, good eats, great treats! 😀
