I’ve seen this idea on a few photography blogs and I LOVE it! So…I’m stealing (err…borrowing..) it and I am going to *try* to post What to Wear ideas/suggestions each Wednesday. Your family’s wardrobe can really help to spice up your photos if done properly. Personally, I prefer that families coordinate and “go” with each other rather than wear matchy matchy outfits. I’ve created two mock-ups below. You will see that one family can have a variety of looks depending on their wardrobe choices. All outfits below can be purchased from GAP but they are merely suggestions. Stay tuned for next weeks What to Wear installment where we will feature a different store and a different family.

I’ve been wanting a fun camera strap (instead of my standard issue Nikon one) for a LONG time! I knew that there had to be a way to make one. I went out and bought some $4 ribbon and…my mama saved the day…just LOOK at what she made me! I think I am in love! Thanks mom…you rock (for many more reasons than just this camera strap)!

First of all…I just have to comment on this child’s wardrobe! Does her momma know how to dress her or what? Miss Ava’s outfits were a photographers dream! Fun, funky, artsy, stylish…just LOVE them!

Ava was pretty shy for a while but soon warmed right on up to me! By the end of the night she was begging me to tickle her little “footsies”! Such a sweetheart! Heidi…thanks for being such a champ last night and letting me play in alleys with your baby! I hope you love them!

This first little outfit is by Madonna…see…told you she has a rockin’ wardrobe!

In honor of the launch of BerryTree Photography’s brand new blog we are having a Fresh Faces contest!

If you have a child between the ages of 6 months – 18 years old, submit a recent (within the past two months) photo of your child to contests@berrytreephotography.com. Please make sure you put FRESH FACES in the subject line and include your child’s name, date of birth, and your contact info in the e-mail. You have until June 21st (the first official day of summer!) to submit your photograph.

After all photos are submitted a panel of experts (my wonderful family and friends) will pick their favorite entries! Of all the entries submitted, 10 finalists will be chosen. The photos and first name of the 10 children that are chosen will be posted on the blog and voting will begin! Anyone can vote, so make sure you send the link to BerryTree Photography Blog to all you know to vote for your child!

What will the winners receive?

1st place:
A free session ($200 value) and a 16×20 storyboard with images from your session
2nd place:
$150 off your session fee and an 8×10 storyboard with images from your session
3rd place:
$100 off your session fee and a 5×7 print

What if I don’t win?
I’m that person that enters things and never wins. So that no one feels disappointed after a contest like I often do…ANYONE that enters the contest and does not win 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize is still a winner! Book a session with BerryTree Photography by September 1st and receive $50 off your session fee and a free 5×7! (These sessions must be booked in 2009 to qualify for the prize)

What’s the fine print?
1. By entering the contest you agree to sign a model release on behalf of your child. This allows us to use your child’s photo on our website, blog, or in any marketing materials.
2. One entry per child. If you have more than one child you may enter them individually as separate contestants. However, the winning session will be limited to the winning child only. The session is non-transferable.
3. Submitted photos must not be from a professional photographer.
4. Entrants may be from anywhere, however the winning entrant must either be within 20 miles of Canton, GA or willing to travel to Canton, GA for the session.
5. The Fresh Faces Winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) must book their session within 6 weeks of being named the winner. If the session is not booked within 6 weeks, the prize will be considered null and void.

Now hurry up and send those images in! The contest will be over before you know it!

Love, Sarah

The 6-9 month range is one of my absolute favorite to photograph! Little ones this age are so easy going and just sit and smile away! So much easier than chasing a toddler around. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of little ones in this age range recently! Little Miss Hannah however was quite a challenge. As beautiful as she is, you’d think Hannah would want to have her picture taken all day long…but little did she know that meant leaving mama and daddy’s arms! She wanted nothing to do with me and my photography, only wanted to be held and loved on by her parents! (who could blame her!) We still managed to get some awesome shots! I hope you guys love them. I can just see these being framed in your house for years and years!

What a sweetheart! It was hard to coax smiles out of Miss Reyna (I think she thought we were crazy) but she is such a sweetheart and just a pure natural beauty! I just love her little cheeks and her perfect complexion! (why can’t my skin look like that!) Without further ado!

Meet Mr. Gavin!

His momma and I both grew up in Pittsburgh and we went to both middle school and high school together! I moved to GA and she moved to Louisiana but we’ve still remained as close as can be! I love that all of my friends are having babies…and the most adorable ones at that! This was Gavin’s first time in the grass and he was a little wary of it, but we got some great shots and had a fabulous time! Thanks Johanna for the lovely visit and letting me capture your adorable little man!
