We had a shoot this afternoon with a lovely group! Here are my favorite pictures! Let us know if you need your website photo updated (or just improved!). We would love to help!

New Magnets! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/9/new-magnets I am so excited to show off one of our new specials on one of my personal favorite products: Magnet cards! We are now offering 4x5 magnetic cards with envelopes for just $2.50/card! We love these cards for their diverse uses and lasting impressions! Whether you want to remind your family and friends to save the date for your wedding or announce the newest family member, "fridge art" is a wonderful way to go! One of my favorite parts of these cards is that I get to design them each from scratch to match your needs and style! Then, I will post proofs online and we can make adjustments easily! Oh, and it is getting to be the holiday season...I would love to have a fridge full of my closest family and friends! Here are the latest magnetic creations!

Our newest little black book! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/7/our-newest-little-black-book Alright folks, here it is! Our new favorite little photo book! I was searching for a nice, small photo book that would be great for our clients. This 5x7 little black book is the perfect way to display your portrait session or share it with a parent, grandparent, or spouse. It is printed on photographic paper, so the pictures look amazing. The pages are hard and sturdy, but not so thick that the book becomes cumbersome. Best of all, we are currently offering them for only $70! Look for your pre-designed portrait session book today!

Beautiful Little Ladies! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/7/beautiful-little-ladies Aren't babies just the most wonderful little things in all the world? I just adore them and love getting the opportunity to take their portrait. Capturing a new baby is always an adventure; they are little people with their own schedule and agenda. We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to photograph little Zara. She is the sweetest little lady and so very curious. Oh, and she just loved the bean bag chair! She didn't mind sitting or tummy time, she loved being able to look around and see this crazy thing called a portrait session. Here are a few samples of her fun and frilly session!!

Fun in the Sun! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/7/fun-in-the-sun Here is what I am working on....

 

We recently had the opportunity to photograph two beautiful children at one of our favorite spots, Olde Rope Mill! Because she has a background in ballet, she was a wonderfully natural poser. While he kept us busy and laughing with his silly (or crazy according to his big sis) personality! What a beautiful day and what wonderfully sweet kids!

What to Wear?!? http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/6/what-to-wear Ahhhh!! You have signed up for a photo session, it is just days away, and now you realize you have no idea what to wear!

 

This is a common problem for every person (for me it is a morning by morning problem) and it is only intensified when you add your investment in these images that you will look at and share for generations to come!

 

Luckily, we live in an age where you only need to type a few words into your favorite search engine and TaDa! more options than I knew existed are presented to me! To help you as you wade through the wealth of information you will receive, keep these tips in mind:

 

1) You don't have to match. I mean, by all means, match if you want to (so cute for dads and sons!), but it isn't nessecary that everyone wear the same type of pants or color of shirt. It is more important to coordinate. Be sure that everyone is on board with the color scheme and you don't have fall colors mixed with neon. Unless, of course, that is your scheme...hmmm...that could work!

 

2) Don't be afraid to accessorize! Wear those heirloom pieces so that you can have them documented on film. Be sure to let me know that this is your great-grandmother's ring. We can feature it and you will love it! Wear jewelry, scarves, hats, glasses, that show your personality! The more of your favorite items you include, the more you will love your photos!

 

3) Think about your setting. Do you love the idea of wearing a beautiful gown in a park or do you prefer something more casual?

 

4) Be comfortable. We will be walking, sitting, and playing during your shoot. If you are comfortable in your outfit, it will come through in your photos. Often, fit is more important than style.

 

5) Use textures and patterns! Some of the most beautiful images can be created with a little help from beautiful and different textures. Whether you choose to vary texture within each outfit or between people, it is a great way to create visual interest in your images.

 

Most importantly, there is no wrong choice. Go with your gut. These will be photos for you and your family to treasure and you need to like what you are wearing. Don't forget your hair and shoes and you will be set.

 

If you need some more detailed ideas, here are some great resources taken from pinterest:

Enjoy and happy coordinating!

Wedding Albums! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/6/wedding-albums It is finally time to update our wedding albums and products! Getting so much interest with our Groupon offer has really inspired me and my love for all of those wonderful, individual love stories out there! Getting very excited to get this new wedding book finished and ordered. This industry is constantly changing and improving and I can't wait to get some samples of the new textures that are offered! I have been researching a lot lately to refresh some of our older looks and just can't wait to get them completed! Look for some samples of our books in the upcoming weeks! For information on our wedding albums, click here!

Summer! http://www.ellabstudios.com/blog/2013/6/summer Summer is finally here! Since we have just moved here from Florida, I have to say that we are LOVING this Georgia summer! The weather is beautiful and it is amazing seeing the transformation of all of the natural space.! Our children are loving all of the parks and the outdoor adventures. We can't wait to get some beautiful summer photos at some of our favorite spots!

 

We are really excited this week as our Groupon went live and the response has been wonderful! We have had so many new customers contacting us. We still love our school photography and getting to photograph children in that special environment, but we are very excited about getting even more private sessions where we can take more time and get even more fun shots!

 

We will be posting some fun new ideas for organizations later this week! We are looking to expand the fundraising that we do with our preschools to any organization. We sent out some mailers this week to see what kind of response we can get from the community. If you have an organization looking to raise some money this summer/fall, give us a call!

 

Talk to you soon!

Crystal
