As of 4pm the Halloween Snapshot Gallery was up!
It’s been a quiet on this blog the past year since most of my updates have moved to Facebook. I’ve also been working on a different location for my posts, so when that’s more up-to-date I’ll add a link here. But that’s not why you’re here today!
This is Year 3!! of doing Free Halloween Snapshots of the kids in the neighborhood as they are out Trick-or-Treating. The posts about 2011 & 2010 are still available if you want to see them, or forgot to download your photos from previous Halloweens.
This year the weather seemed to keep the numbers lower than last, but it was still a pretty steady stream of trick-or-treaters. I want to thank all the stopped in my office on Wednesday. I LOVE seeing all the costumes & love seeing my year-round clients in a fun, hyped-up-on-sugar way!!
The link to the Halloween Snaps 2012 gallery is here:
You just need to click on the image(s) of your children, hover over the photo or right-click, and then choose “download” to save to your computer. You are also able to order any prints online if you’d like or stop in my studio anytime. Otherwise, this is just my gift to you. I hope you had a great Halloween night!!
Like like always, here are a few favorites! (Including my puppy & my brother’s two, ha!)
I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
Enjoy the photos!!!
This is the last session I’m blogging tonight & rounding out 11 sessions posted on 11.11.11. I’m photographing another wedding tomorrow so I’m getting my batteries charged & cleaning off the memory cards.
Emily was my first 2012 senior this year. We broke up her sessions over a couple different days for a couple different seasons, (mostly because she said her brother stole her location ideas during his engagement session & partly because we wanted the “straight hair look” & “the curly hair look”).
The first day we lucked out with perfect weather. Gorgeous flowers. And green grass! Later we planned to do all the straight hair photos on the same day, but like many of my senior sessions the weather doesn’t want to work with me. Luckily we were able to still get into the high school for some sports shots & rescheduled the rest of the photos for the following week.
And that day was WINDY! and cold. But mostly WINDY! I love that the senior girls I get to photograph brave the cold & don’t even look like they are freezing. I think this last day of photos was my favorite though. The colors were beautiful & the wind worked with us, mostly.
Off to get ready for tomorrow!
Finally! Happy 11.11.11. Part 3 :D
In the spirit of the day, 11.11.11, I figured I’d get on the blogging bandwagon & get some older photos up on this site! For the day I will be blogging 11 sessions, but breaking them up into a multiple posts for ease of reading! I’m still way behind on getting this place completely caught up, (especially now that I’m in the busy season), but I DO still want to have as many sessions here as I can even if they are way behind schedule.
To start with, I figured I should get the rest of the 2011 graduated seniors up before I start with my 2012 seniors! Sorry guy for not getting these up here sooner. I know you are out in the “real-world” or in college now, so this will be an homage to you all!
First up: Katelyn! The day was gorgeous even if a little windy. She took me to her grandmother’s old home & places that were so much more personal & I’m thankful that I got to see a place that was so loved & filled with tradition. Also we went to Hueston Woods for part of her session which I hadn’t been to before for work & hadn’t been in years period. Since Katelyn’s session, & bumming directions from her, I’ve been back many times as it’s gorgeous!
Later that fall I met & photographed Damien. He really just wanted pictures with his truck & jeep, but we managed to get shots for mom too. The smiles were achieved by threatening to let his little sister tell me embarrassing stories about him if we didn’t. I just love laughing shots no matter the subject!
Spring came and along with it endless rain. It ended up working out fine during Paul’s senior session though. The colors came out so vibrant for just being in the early spring so it was worth putting up with the dampness in the air & sprinkles that kept coming. I love that my studio is right in town to give the UCHS seniors the opportunity for their photos on “the home field”.
Finally the last session for the previous year’s graduating class was my cousin Emma & the only non UCHS senior in the bunch for that year. It was another day filled with the threat of rain, but the rain held off until right at the end of the session & for that we both were thankful. For Emma’s pictures we went down the road to her grandma’s, (my great-aunt’s), to experience the end of the spring florals.
Next up, & some of my favorite subjects, the newborns of 2011!
Happy 11.11.11 Part.1
NOTE**As of 6:50pm all photos have been added to the gallery! Thanks!
I don’t know that I was much more ready for Halloween this year than I was last year since I probably had double the amount of people stopping in! I was glad to see a couple familiar faces from last year, (probably more that I didn’t recognize in costume!), as well as families that I get to photograph throughout the year. It was an amazing turnout & I’m so so so glad we did this again! I love seeing all the kids dressed up!
A few things we different in how we set up after the experience last year. I still don’t know that I’m completely happy with the set up when larger groups come in so I still might have more tweaks by the time 2012 rolls around. If any of the families that stopped in here on Monday, or both years!, have any feedback for me, or just a comment on if this is something they’d like me to continue offering, that would be wonderful!
Anyway! The link to the Halloween Snaps 2011 gallery is here:

Of course I have to leave you with just a few of my favorites from the night:
I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween & a great start to November!!
