Print vs Digital

What is the value in an actual print?  Or is there value?  I tend to believe that there is great value in being able to present high quality color corrected images to my clients.  One thing that is certain is that whatever digital format you may receive your images on, they are not forever.  No different than an 8 track tape or a the rarely used CD.  Most cars don't even come with a CD player any longer.  

There is something very nostalgic about holding on to an image that has captured you children and your family in a meaningful way.  Time goes by way too fast and kids become young adults before our eyes.  Make sure these moments are captured and preserved with the highest quality paper and ink available.  Can it be an investment?  Certainly, but years from now when looking back at those physical images you will never regret making that purchase of you and your family.  These are keepsakes, not just pictures you snap on your iphone.  

There really is no comparison when it comes to looking at your photographs on a phone or computer versus flipping through real photos.  That ability to touch and feel the ink and paper is part of the nostalgia that comes with printing your images and flipping through a high quality album.  

Make the investment in fine art prints.  You won't regret it.

Retro inspired session with Taylor

We had fun with this one.  Cora's closet was nice enough to allow us to borrow their retro styling clothing and 715 hot heads were so great to work with for hair and makeup.

Jayden

In addition to doing some outdoor work with Kristin, Justin, and Jayden. We did a mini session with Jayden in my studio.  He is a mover and a shaker and I had to move pretty quickly to catch a few frames with this little guy.  In the end the images turned out great!

The "Who I Am Project"

The "Who I Am Project"

"Did I not exist as a tween?" I think to myself as I flip the plastic pages of my parents' family photo album. One of the few photos that exists of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one, that head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. My teeth are slightly too big for my face and my hair isn't combed. Mom why didn't you comb my hair?!  

We all know babies are cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the craziest things....or at least my little guy does.  But those tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-12, kids aren't children anymore but aren't quite teens.  

I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel AWESOME and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.

In comes the "Who I am." project 

We are starting the "Who I am" photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to make pre-teens look and feel amazing and be confident in who they are.

Who we're looking for

We are looking for models for our photography project, ages 10-12. We will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.

How to participate or nominate a friend:

Please e-mail us by Friday, March 10th if you are interested in having your child participate in this project, or if you would like to nominate a friend or family member of yours that you think would be perfect for this. Please nominate people you think would enjoy the boutique experience we provide. The in-studio session itself is complimentary, a $125 value. Our goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your daughter or son’s spirit and soul!  These photos would be great as birthday, Mothers Day, or “just because” gifts for their daughter/son. Our portrait collections start at $189.

After you email us at jpetrickphoto@gmail.com, we will send you specific details and you can decide if this project is perfect for your son or daughter.

Cheers!

In-home lifestyle session with the Carr family.

Our in-home lifestyle sessions are much like a typical portrait session except there is much more of an emphasis on capturing candid, raw emotion. These are typically done in the client's home.  There is a plan prior to the session, however the feel of the session is much more relaxed, which allows me to capture more of a "behinds the scenes" feel to the portrait session.  The Carrs were absolutely fantastic to work with in this session.

Great color coordination

This is a great example of coordinating your outfits for a photo session.  It's always important to wear clothes that coordinate with one another without it looking to "matchy."  I always think simple is best.  Stay away from busy patterns or graphics. Layers also help provide texture and depth. In this image they used a scarf and coat to add dimension.  Work with colors that fit the mood for fall, spring, etc.  I work with many clients, if needed, to help them better decide on what works for their up coming session.  Thank you Beckman family for being AWESOME!
