Before & After - Part Two

This picture was taken in my son's nursery, a.k.a. my homemade "studio," where the rocking chair and door are visible in the top photograph.  Henry also had a little scratch on his right cheek.  After a little work, this turned out to be the family favorite photograph!

Email if you are interested in any infant/toddler mini sessions.

I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas!

Before & After - Part One

I thought it was time to show a little before and after action with you.  As you can see, the background was too short for the dancers' lift, too narrow for the subjects, and there is a hair in my lens that left a mark on the top left corner.  I rarely dabble in photoshop for the simple reason that I want to leave as much integrity of the original photo as possible.  However, this one needed some help!

After making the necessary background changes, only simple additions in lightroom were made in vibrance, contrast, spot sharpening, and brightness.  Enjoy!

My Christmas Present To You

Schneeberger Family

Bethany and Matt have two precious babies - Lilli (2) and Landry (1) and FINALLY getting hitched in December!  I have gotten so close to the Schneeberger family in the last year - they helped me during my pregnancy, recovery, and were even in attendance for my labor!  We shot the family where they were most comfortable - at home.

 When Bethany woke Lilli up from her nap, she said, "Baby Henry is here!"  Lilli hopped out of bed, said "Where?" which was audible from the living room, and dashed to the room to see her little friend. Lilli and Landry loved seeing their play buddy, and I loved the chance to naturally capture the family playing in the backyard.

Today, I want to make a few announcements.
1.  Welcome to my new website!  Features include a search setting, blog for clients and friends, proof page for clients wanting to keep their gallery password protected, portfolio of some of my work, and links to my social media sites.

2.  I'm officially an L.L.C.!  What does change that mean for you?  Not much; sales tax is included in session prices.  I accept cash or check, and checks can be made out to "From Britt's Eye View Photography, L.L.C."

3.  I'm a mom!  This might explain my hiatus, as my sweet boy is 6 weeks old.  He is Michael Henry Oliver Smith, and the family couldn't be more delighted.  (Thanks to late nights and feedings as opportunity to revamp the site.)  In a session scheduling update, please give me enough notice to find a sitter, or understand that we are inseparable and will join us on our adventure.

4.  To all dance institutions:  my heart is in dance performance photography.  Help me share my name as well as your artistic outreach by forming a partnership.  Let's strike a deal.

5.  To all clients:  I will now be using Dropbox to deliver your photos.  You will receive a link via email to instantly download all of the photographs from your session.  Cds are still available for family, friends, or dancers for $50.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season.  I look forward to capturing your memories.

P.S.  Stay updated for future mini sessions and an upcoming giveaway ...

With all of my new projects and endeavors, I wanted to reflect on everything I've learned over the past year.     It started when I changed shooting in .jpeg to RAW format, buying my first external flash, then reflector, and a professional-grade lens, taking classes, finding mentors in the industry, and reading any book I can get my hands on, I'm glad to say my style is changing.

It has been over six months since I last posted on my blog, but along with the New Year's resolutions to go to Europe and graduate with two degrees at once, I am going to try to be more consistent!
