I’m a photography nerd! I love capturing authentic moments of my family, friends, and nature. Everywhere I go I am looking for opportunities to snap a few pictures. Although I LOVE to do that, there is one thing that I am missing! Professional photos! There is nothing quite like what a professional photographer can capture. After my recent visit to our local Portrait Innovations, I know and appreciate this even more!
We have two beautiful children that we enjoy capturing on film. Of course, as parents, we believe our babies are the cutest and most photogenic ones around. However, if the truth is told, I can hardly capture pictures of our little boy. He is too fast and does not have time to sit for a photo. It’s just not his thing! What we end up with is a blurry trail as he zooms by after the shot has been taken.
A week ago we scheduled a session at Portrait Innovations. I have noticed this place at our local outdoor shopping mall, but I have yet to take advantage of what they have to offer. After my session, I am asking myself WHY! We had a young lady by the name of Addie assigned to us, and she was amazing! Working with our little boy involves patience. As a typical two-year-old, he wants to run and play. Getting him to sit down for a picture taking session is next to impossible. This did not seem to phase Addie. She was ready and willing to snap pictures of him despite his shenanigans.
This picture captured above is one of our favorites. Baby boy was not interested in sitting down and posing with his little sister like we had envisioned. She managed to get one of the two of them at the top of this post, but that was due to her impeccable timing. What you can’t see from the above picture was how he was running around playing with the props. Despite his playfulness, Addie was quick to snap. She did not let his typical two-year-old behavior interfere with us getting quality images that we could proudly show off to our friends and family. I can’t stress to you just how impressed I was with that. As a teacher in an elementary school, I am used to kids. I know how they behave. What Addie demonstrated to me in our session was a level of professionalism that I could appreciate.
With Halloween right around the corner, this is the perfect time to make an appointment for your family at Portrait Innovations. Why not capture your children in their Halloween costumes? After all, many of us invest a lot of time and energy in finding just the right costume for our little ones. These are the perfect memories to capture on film.
You don’t just have to focus on the Fall either right now. Portrait Innovations is ready to help you snap the right holiday picture. As a mother, I am really thankful for that. In the past, I have tried to snap my own pictures when I got the tree up and that just does not leave me a lot of time to order cards and address them. I have also searched through my phone looking for images from our summer vacations just to find that perfect image for our cards. Unfortunately, I am usually disappointed when I have picked just the right card and get that lovely triangle with an exclamation mark in it. You know the one that lets you know the image you selected is way too small for the card you want. Have you ever had that happen to you?
Why not let Portrait Innovations take that stress from you? We were able to select several photos to feature on our holiday cards this year. What made this even better is they had a wide selection of cards we could choose from. No more worrying this holiday season about cards for this momma! I’m ready!
Our experience at Portrait Innovations was an easy and impressive one. I would even use the word fun for our photo session despite our rambunctious little two-year-old. Throughout the day leading up to our session, I had managed to get myself worked up dreading the events that would unfold at the studio. I knew my two-year-old was going to give me and the photographer a run for our money. I had worried so much that I had worked up a quite a headache! But as our session went on, I noticed my stress was alleviated. Addie made sure to make me feel comfortable and to let me know she had this. She kept telling me that everything was fine. He’s a typical two-year-old and she had time to make sure things turned out right. You know what? She was right! She eased this momma’s fears and provided a session that was easy and fun.
What made this even sweeter was that I walked out of that studio with my pictures in hand. Yes, they print them right in the studio for you. Even our cards were printed for us. The only thing we are waiting to receive is our special products like calendars, canvas portraits, and photo gifts.
