I Never Knew What Bravery Was....

"I never knew what bravery was... until I saw it in my mother" 

 

A picture with this very quote was sent to me shortly before Mother's Day, and I noticed that on it there was a white cancer ribbon. The family had contacted our studio to capture some special memories. Three siblings booked family sessions with us, and brought along Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma has a special story of her own, as she has been battling cancer. We were able to include Grandmas story into their session, through creative elements and posing. Belown is a few takes from my time with this beautiful family!

New Studio

FullSizeRender.jpg

Many have been asking to see the inside of our studio. We still have a lot of work to finish; shelves to be built, storage space, our couch and rug have yet to arrive, and some of our work is not up on the walls yet - but none the less, we are excited to share some panoramic images of our space!

 

**be forewarned, these images were taken from my cell phone! **

New Office Space

Our studio announced some big news this previous week! We officially signed our lease to the new studio location! As most of you know, due to circumstances beyond our control, PhoenixPhotos moved home to our personal residence until we were able to find the picture perfect location! Well, with the help of the best realtor in town - we found it. Nice big open spaces, lots of natural light, but most importantly - a space that's just for us! That's right, no more sharing!

Our last location downtown, we were unable to officially move completely in, and call ours! We were located in a dark basement, that had more of an apartment set up! It was difficult for mammas with babies carrying car seats. It was a struggle to keep warm enough for newborn session.... it was a work in progress. We were located in that location for 9 months.... when the landlord decided to do something different with the space! We were on the lookout for the right opportunity.

 

We appreciate our clients continued trust in us as your photographers, while we underwent these significant changes. We can hardly wait to show you all the new space! I haven't even unpacked our camera equipment, but was able to snap a couple portraits on my phone this afternoon.

Whats nice is to seperate our office, and session prep area (hair/makeup) from the actual studio space. Leaving ample room for our clients comfortability. We will welcome our studio guests into a small sitting area, perfect for all our consultations for weddings, grow with me plans, and senior sessions! As you make your way through the room, we have plenty of space for multiple set ups!!! (***huge plus for me!!***) This simply means when you arrive to the studio, your entire session is already set up, and ready to go! No more waiting while we replace backdrops. No more down time attempting to keep little ones happy and occupied! Another big perk, is your littles are free to wander! With a larger space, it means we are able to not worry about them knocking something over, or getting into our filing cabinet! 

We are all geared up and ready to for our indoor studio sessions this year. You'll have to bear with us, we made this jump, and are working tirelessly to get it all set up. Once our final touches are made, we will share images of the space! Until then, feel free to stop on by and say hello!! 

Coming this summer: Office hours and walk in appts!

Maternity Session Tips

This post on maternity tips for our clients will help you prepare for your session!

IMG_1128.JPG

Even though pregnancies are anything but easy, considering bed rest, ultra sounds, the works, when we think about each growing soul, I get a little lump in my throat and my heart soars a bit. The entire birthing process is nothing short of amazing which is why the maternal bond develops long before baby arrives. Photographing your baby bump is a special way to capture that pregnancy glow so that you can have something to reflect how you looked and felt being pregnant with the most precious gift!

NE Wyoming based photographer Deanna Phoenix knows a thing or two about capturing the joy of pregnancy. She has an eye for unique settings and uses light and creative posing to showcase the essence of her subjects. Deanna also specializes in child and family photography, to continue working with her clients as their families grow! Here is Deanna's favorite tips for a successful maternity photo shoot.

1. GOAL: Capture this special time in your life in a natural, fresh, comfortable and fun way. Family members are welcome to join in your session as well.

IMG_1127.JPG

2. TIMING: I recommend scheduling your baby bump shoot sometime around 32-35 weeks – perfect timing to show off your belly before you won’t feel like showing it off anymore.

IMG_1125.JPG

3. OUTFITS: Color & comfort is key. Pattern is also a good way to add an element of pop to a photo. I often tell families to pick 3-4 colors that tie everyone together and the same goes for a baby bump shoot – An example: navy, turquoise, yellow and lime green. Sometimes we even incorporate the colors of the nursery as a starting point. I also recommend wearing something more on the form-fitting side – a dress, a long skirt with a fitted tank, statement necklace, and a bright cardigan. We want to see the bump but also be comfortable doing it. Comfort translates through the camera, it's imperative you are not uncomfortable with your selected wardrobe. Although we love to feature bare skinned photos, it is never required if you are not interested! If you need help styling, we recommend a couple local boutiques that would be happy to assist in your wardrobe for your session.

4. LOCATION: I prefer to capture your beauty with natural light. Typically our sessions would be scheduled either early in the day or closer to sunset to capture the best light possible. Being a full service studio, we do offer our indoor sessions as well. Styling and scheduling is the same for indoor sessions.
