Tuesday Tips: How to take great first day of school photos

How to take 1st day of School photos

Earlier this month, we started a new live video series on our Facebook Page and our IGTV Channel (Instagram TV!).  Our first video was all about how to take the best 1st day of school photos of your kids!  As a mom of a now 4th and 8th grader, I’ve had quite a few years to do this, so I wanted to share the tips and tricks I have picked up that make it fun and memorable for us each year!  Check out the full post on our Facebook page for the link to the printables I mention too!

Join us every other Tuesday on our Facebook page LIVE, or watch the replay when you have time!  See you there!


MN Newborn Photographer >> Meet Eamon

Twin Cities Newborn Photos

One of my favorite things about meeting these sweet new babies is getting to see how much hair they have! They are all so different! Some are completely bald, and many of them have more hair than my husband! (Shhhh…don’t tell him I said that 🤫) . Eamon had a FULL head of hair and looked so much like his big brother that we photographed as a newborn a few years ago! Loved getting to see this sweet family again!⠀

It’s always so fun to compare newborns to their bigger siblings when they come to the studio for their session!  Sometimes they look nearly identical, and other times, they are completely opposite!  Weston reminded me a LOT of his bigger brother, but still looked like his own person!  It’s going to be so fun to watch him grow through our Baby’s first year plan!

Twin Cities Family Photographer >> Behind the Scenes: 3 Generations

Have you ever wondered what goes into some of our sessions after the photo shoot? Well, today I’m giving you a sneak peek into my process! Simply swipe left to see three photos of a fun project we worked on for a family wanting to document 3 generations of beautiful women!

THE GOAL: To capture a generational collection of images of Grandma, holding a photo of her daughter, holding a photo of her granddaughter!

STEP 1 ~ We took photos of each of the ladies holding the frame we wanted to use for each photo

STEP 2 ~ I then narrowed down and edited my favorite picture of each of the ladies. Took the photo of the granddaughter and copied it into the photo of the daughter’s frame.

STEP 3 ~ Take the photo of Daughter & Granddaughter, and copy it into the frame that Grandma is holding! VOILA!
