Some Holiday Inspiration!

We love the holiday season! Not only is it our favorite time to bring out all the fun and creative props we have, but its a time we get to see all our families dress their best to impress! We love seeing the different outfits the kids come in–sometimes formal, sometimes casual, but always cute! Check out some of our favorite images from the past couple of weeks. Sometimes our props inspire the outfits, and sometimes the outfits inspire what prop (or no prop) we decide to use. We hope this jump starts you to start planning your outfits and holiday session! Call today!

With Easter being only 9 days away, we wanted to post some adorable bunny photos from the past couple of weeks. The bunnies this year are cuter than ever and have been working very hard to bring smiles and laughter to all the children that have visited us so far! We are keeping our little friends for one week following Easter, so you still have time to book your session and join in on the fun!


2012 Holiday Props & Sets

With the official kick-off to the holiday season right around the corner (Veteran’s Day, to be exact) we thought we would share with you all the great things we have this year to accent your holiday portraits. Our selection this year is bigger and better than ever. Some are brand new, and some are tried and true and have remained your favorites throughout the years!
*please note: while we have all of these items in every location, the style and colors of each may vary!


Seasonal Colored Backgrounds
We change our colored backgrounds with the seasons, and for the holidays we opted for more neutral colors rather than the traditional reds and greens. Now you can have your images displayed all year long!


Santa Hats
This simple accent goes with any outfit and brings just the right amount of holiday spirit to your portraits.


Fireplace & Tree
A customer favorite over the years, these actual fireplaces and Christmas trees add a traditional touch to your holiday portraits.

Holiday Gift Boxes
Similar to our ornaments, these are a fun and simple addition to your pictures.

Elf Hats
We have a variety of hand knit holiday hats for you to use. Paired with just a simple diaper cover, your child can become Santa’s Little Helper for the day!


This is another simple accent that has been a dependable favorite over the years. We can use them in a variety of ways, and they add a very classic touch to your portraits.


Fall Leaves
Not ready for snowflakes and winter hats? These fall leaves are a perfect way for you to hold onto that last bit of fall.
