With the Valentine Mini Sessions right around the corner, I had a few of my clients come to the studio to try out the set that I spent entirely too much time working on. During the move into the Boardman studio, I had purchased the settee at a local resale shop. It was a floral green pattern and not even close to what I had envisioned for the Valentine’s Day set. I took a cue from Pinterest and tried to paint the settee red. Well, I must say, not all Pinterest projects are a good idea. The fabric painting project was a total disaster. Thank goodness my dad is a jack of all trades and was able to recover the settee in a beautiful red fabric for me in just 2.5 days!
First to visit the studio were Lilly and James. These two love to ham it up in front of the camera for me. James told me that he would take exactly 10 photos for me. This little guy cracks me up every time I photograph him. In his mind, he has his own game plan for the session, so we need to stick to it! Lilly was a perfect angel as always and has no problem showing that beautiful smile off for the camera, missing teeth and all.
Abbigail also stopped by the studio that weekend to get a few photos in, as well. This was the third time I have photographed her in less than a year. We did First Communion portraits last Spring and family photographs at Youngstown’s Mill Creek Park in the Fall. Needless to say she has become a pro in front of the camera with so many sessions in a short period of time.
The deadline for the Valentine Mini sessions is right around the corner and sessions need to be booked by January 22nd. For more information on these limited edition sessions, you can read the blog post here or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
