Kesha & Troy, Fun and Funny Engagement Session | Northern VA Family Photographer

As fine art photographers in the Aldie, VA area, we’re thrilled each time a personal friend turns to us for their portraits. We have been honored to do Kesha and Troy’s milestone portraits on more than one occasion – each as much fun as the previous!

When Kesha became engaged, she and her fiancé Troy turned to us for their portraits. “Troy and Kesha have been good friends of ours for quite some time. I feel like I practically ‘grew up’ with them! So when they became engaged, we jumped at the opportunity to photograph them,” recalls Joriana.

They asked us for a fun and funny wall collection from their engagement session, so we curated this gallery which is so telling of their wonderful personalities!

“Troy laughs all of the time; it’s just his nature. So, a series where he’s trying hard NOT to laugh and Kesha is laughing was just what they wanted!” said Joriana.

If you look at the center picture of Troy, you might notice his pursed lips as he tries so hard not to laugh while she bursts out laughing. It was a rather unusual role reversal for these two which captured their joy for life and love for one another! Being a skilled photographer, by the way, means being ready throughout a portrait session to capture special moments like this one! Kesha and Troy chose our Steel finish for this wall collection, a cool contemporary finish that suits them and their home well.
 

 
As a family photographer, a significant part of what we do is getting to know our clients. This is no big box photography studio where we rush folks in and out! Getting to know clients helps us recognize what to capture in their portraits. It’s all about reflecting them authentically. The key to excellent portraiture is authenticity. It’s why we take our time with clients during a session and why we talk to them before they even schedule their portrait sesssion.

As Aldie, VA fine art photographers, we enjoy working with all of our clients, building relationships with them, and reflecting who they are through our imagery. If you chose to work with our portrait photography studio, we look forward to working with you and getting to know you too!

Wall Art for Your Family  | Northern VA Family Photographer

Wall Art for Your Family | Northern VA Family Photographer

Without words, each portrait we take tells someone’s story. Each one is a reflection of a life or lives. Remembering that as a family photographer is critical to creating authentic portrait art.

Wall Art

It’s always exciting for us to see which portraits clients fall in love with and what products they select. We enjoy knowing where they decide to display the wall art in their homes or offices! In Jessica and Rod’s case, they loved their portraits so much they ordered a wall collection in Ice for their home. They created a stunning portrait gallery of their beautiful family of three. Their portraits are like windows to their personalities – as if they were standing there smiling at us!

Rod, Jessica and Emma are a warm and loving family, and it was easy to capture that as an experienced family photographer. It’s that authenticity we seek in each picture. It’s important to us to produce portraits clients fall in love with the moment they see them.

Portrait Box

Jessica and Rod opted for the Contemporary Frameless Ice Finish for their portraits. It’s a modern style which coordinates well with most interior design styles. But, they didn’t stop there! They also chose a portrait box. The box allowed them to have more favorites portraits which they could safely store, while allowing them easy access for viewing.

If you would like to work with a family photographer in the Aldie, VA area, we’d love to hear from you. Authenticity is at the heart of all we do in our work. We think it’s evident in this family’s beautiful portraits!

Should I get my child a camera? Sure! | Northern VA Family Photographer

Should I get my child a camera? Sure! | Northern VA Family Photographer

Many photographers found their passion for photography in childhood with their first camera. As a mother-daughter team in the Aldie, VA area, that was the case for us as well. If your child has shown any interest or aptitude for taking pictures, we encourage you to foster their curiosity. It could turn out to be their profession one day.

Cameras make great gifts for kids!
As a family photographer familiar with children, we are not suggesting you purchase a $2,000 Nikon for a ten-year old! The market is full of inexpensive, good quality cameras well-suited for children. If your child is a teen, then you can probably spend a bit more if you feel they are responsible. While we don’t endorse specific products, we did some research and here are a few kid-friendly cameras:

* VTech Kidizoom Duo (ages three to nine years): Most parents will recognize the electronic toymaker’s name. Like most of their products, this camera for kids won’t disappoint a little one or their parents. There’s 256MB of built-in memory, but there’s a built-in microSD card rear with 1 to 32GB capacity. This camera even shuts itself off to preserve the battery if your little one forgets to turn it off.

* Polaroid’s PIC-300 offers instant satisfaction for those impatient little ones anxious to see their masterpieces. Polaroid won’t disappoint, but each instant film pack allows for just 10 pictures of 3.4” x 2.10”. There are four settings simplifying life for the amateur-miniature photographer.

* For the selfie-obsessed younger generation, VTech once again steps up with an attractive option: Kidizoom Selfie Cam! It’s for agest six and over, and has a .3 megapixel at 640 x 480 resolution camera. That’s not digital high end by any means, but perfect for the elementary school-aged child. Better yet, though, is that it can shoot up to five minutes for video with 128MB internal memory or on a microSD card. Needless to say, it brings its own selfie camera stick!

* For the teen in your life, Sony’s DSCW800/B 20.1-megapixel digital camera is one of Amazon’s best selling in its category. This one is a fully-stocked point-and-shoot with plenty of features to keep the teen amateur photographer intrigued. It will capture 720p of video and a fun panorama mode.

Hopefully, these ideas will get your little one started!

If you are interested in have family portrait session with professional family photographers in the Aldie, VA area, please give us a call to schedule a portrait session. We would love to hear from you!
