High School Senior Boys. Sara Smile Photography South Dayton Ohio

High School Seniors are fun to photograph!  They all have a different idea of styling and how long they intend the session to take.  Some like to have several outfit changes and take a few hours…others prefer a mini session!  I can work with you and your high school senior to create a session that meets your needs!  We can choose a location (or multiple locations) that coordinate with your vision.  I can also take a formal yearbook photo in my studio.

Here are some examples of High School Senior boy photos I have taken!

Studio Session- Let’s photograph your child! Sara Smile Photography Springboro Ohio

Is the weather bad?  Too cold outside?  Or, do you just prefer a more classic, clean look?  Come indoors to my studio!  My studio is set up with fantastic lighting and a lot of great backgrounds to get variety from your session.

Tips for your studio session:

1) Plan your clothing and let me know what colors you will be wearing.  I will select the perfect backgrounds for your session.

2) Bring along any props you might want to use.

3) Sit back and relax while we get some beautiful photos of your children.

Schedule a studio session and enjoy the results…here is an example of a studio session with siblings.

Color or Black & White? How do I choose? Sara Smile Photography Springboro Ohio Photographer

When it comes to choosing between editing a photo in color or black and white…how do I choose?  Well, a lot of it has to do with the shadows and “mood” of the photo.  If the light was dramatic and bold, I am likely to edit it in black and white to show off the drama of the lighting.

Sometimes, I choose to edit a photo in both color AND black & white to let you decide which you prefer!  Some of my clients have framed galleries in their homes and need black & white photos to compliment the rest of the gallery.

Black and white photos can be more “timeless” than color photos.  You notice the clothing and other possible distractions less when the the photo is black and white.  That said…there are times when the colors of the photo are what makes it spectacular!

If you ever want to see one of your photos in color and black and white, let me know and I would be glad to accommodate your request!  If I think that the particular photo won’t look as nice in black/white vs color, I’ll tell you and explain why.

Thank you for trusting me to preserve your most precious memories!

Now is the time to schedule a session with your extended family!  It’s fun to have photos of the cousins…all together.  Nothing makes Grandma more happy!  You take photos of your own kids together…but what about a session with all of their cousins!  You can also do some break-out groups so that you can get plenty of photos to make a nice wall collage for Grandma!

Here are some examples of some photos that I have taken of cousins.  Enjoy!

Your baby’s first year in photographs- Sara Smile Photography Springboro Ohio Photographer

How will you remember your baby?  Was your baby serious?  Did she smile all the time?  Did he hold his hands a certain way…that only you could recognize?  THESE are just some of the things you will want to remember about your baby’s first year!  The best way to capture these memories is by scheduling “milestone” sessions!

Why are “milestone” sessions important?

First, what are “milestone” sessions?  “Milestone” sessions are sessions that will capture important milestones during your baby’s first year.  Most commonly done at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.

These sessions are intended to capture your baby while he or she is growing and changing so quickly.  These sessions are usually done as a mini session because your baby will usually only want to “model” for us for a short period of time.  The world is there to explore so doing anything for more than 20 minutes isn’t always fun for a baby!  🙂

I LOVE these sessions because they produce photos that you will cherish forever.  These are photos that you will display at your child’s high school graduation and even his/her wedding!  🙂  Call me to schedule a “milestone” session…don’t let these precious memories get away!
