Just received this request this morning!

Hi Stacey,

I want to get a new camera to take pictures of my new baby (when she arrives).  All I have now is a little canon digital camera but I want a better camera for capturing moments.  Obviously I am not a photographer so I don’t want anything too intense but  a camera that is really good that a non-photographer can figure out how to use.  Any suggestions?

Hey, Better late then never, right?! Recently I have been shooting a lot of family sessions and like all families one of their “goals” when hiring a professional is to have a nice family photo of EVERYONE.. Mommy , Daddy, and kiddo(s) or also sometimes momma is the one always behind the camera so they want a nice photo of baby and mommy, etc…  However what people forget is that neither they, nor I can control “the beast” :)   Read More »

My favorite.  A new way to play with the playmat

Sometimes you need to let all caution go to the wind and just capture the moment.. who cares about composition, lighting, whatever!  Sometimes you just need to remember what was happening right then and there!  Come on in and see what I mean!

This might seem like a no brainer, but a simple way to avoid dark photos is to make sure you subject is facing the light.. rather then their back to it. There are def. circumstances when you WANT to use that window light as a backlight.. sometimes you want that silhouette, but for the average day… Read More »

Anyways… This app is not so much for photos but for VIDEO!!! I dont know about you guys, but I LOVE the look of 8mm film. Sooo I scoured the land of the phone apps till I found one that got good reviews and looked easy to use!  I AM LOVIN THIS APP! It is really fun to use!  So here it is, with 2 little mini videos of mine for you to see :) Read More »

Ok, Todays tip isnt so much a how to tip, but really some AMAZINGLY cool options for you to scope out and possibly use for your fabulous INSTAGRAM photos that you take on your phone!

I have some grand plans when it comes to my instagram photos ~ I want to make a book, maybe some wall prints, I dont know! For not always taking and posting photos using the ever so popular app I have quite an obsession with it… and it was a big big PLUS for me when I decided to switch over to an iphone.  So I did a little digging since I wanted to be prepared for when I planned to do something really kick ass with my photos!

I have decided that every Tuesday in the month of June will be a tip and review on different photo apps (I am an iphone user… however I will do my best to see if some of these apps have android counterparts for those droid folks in the mix) I am hoping to give you some good tips on some of my favorite features, why I picked them, and so on… ENJOY!  Read More »
