Do you ever wonder what goes into making a beautiful newborn portrait?  Boynton Beach Award Winning Photographer, Stacy Toeniskoetter of http://www.justtoseeyousmile.com has been working with newborns for 13 years!  Creating beautiful, simple, classic portraits of newborns has many things to consider, here are her top THREE.

  1.  Prepare BEFORE your baby is born!  Hiring a professional and scheduling your DUE DATE is KEY to getting into the studio within the week or so of your baby being born.  It’s ideal to get the sleepy and curly positions while the baby is less than 10 days old.  Preparing before will also make sure the photographer you want is available.
  2. Consider photographing siblings and parents during your newborn session.  Your little one will only be this tiny for a very short time.
  3. Most professionals have many things to incorporate into your session, but it’s good to discuss if you plan to bring anything with you to include before the day of the session so that your photographer can be prepared.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Mr. “M” last week and it was a treat!  He met me at my  Boynton Beach photography studio and we captured his milestone portraits with his lively little personality.   The minute he arrived I knew we would be friends!  Milestone portraits are crucial to keeping these little moments alive.  As a parent of a child going to be a senior in high school next year, trust me when I say you will wish you spent the time to document your little one at age five!

Whether your little one is newborn or not so little and graduating college…milestones are meant to be photographed!    Please call me today for a complimentary consultation.  I look forward to hearing from  you!

Parents often wonder how in the world will I get their toddler to cooperate while trying to preserve this precious time in their lives.  The truth is, it’s NEVER a guarantee a toddler  or newborn will fall into my shenanigans but I know it is ALWAYS worth the effort to try!  This adorable Boynton Beach family has documented milestones in their family with me before.   Ashley called to schedule a newborn appointment and she literally said “good luck with this crew!”  A five year old, a just turned two year old and a four week old.   I was up for the challenge!

Here are three key things to make a session with a newborn and a toddler go smoothly.

  1. Trust your photographer!  Choose someone with experience so they know how to handle these ages.   Follow the tips they give before you arrive to your session.
  2. Let the photographer do their job!  It’s essential to come into the session with positive energy and a willingness to lend a hand without trying to bribe your kids into doing what you want.  BRIBES don’t necessarily work.   MOST of the time children will listen to someone they don’t know as well, so let the photographer give the children instructions.  If they need you to try and get smiles, they will let you know!  Come into the session with NO expectations.
  3. Book when the newborn is NEW!  Waiting too long might mean a newborn won’t sleep and this just means more chaos during your session.   Let’s be honest, we are going to be chasing a toddler, the last thing we want to worry about is an awake newborn trying to settle in.  Sessions tend to go more smoothly if the baby is less than 10 days old.    We were really lucky with this little guy who was 4 weeks old when this session was taken.

I have been serving Boynton Beach and the surrounding communities for almost thirteen years and I would welcome the opportunity to talk to you further about your newborn portrait session.  Newborn due dates can be held up to 6 months in advance.  Please see www.justtoseeyousmile.com for more information.

Do you have a professional headshot?  Do you have Linked In, Facebook, Instagram?  Do you have a job that requires you to meet with clients? Are you a board member or part of a networking group?  Do you volunteer?  ALL of these are obvious reasons to have a professional headshot.  In this post I want to dig a little deeper.

Here are the top three reasons why you need to have a headshot created by a professional:

  1. FIRST IMPRESSIONS are vital in today’s digital world and you only have a second to capture someone’s attention.
  2. Conveys PROFESSIONALISM.   It’s important that you put your best foot forward and present yourself as a true professional with a current headshot that represents who you are today.   A selfie or standing up against a plain wall and letting someone snap some pictures of you with your phone isn’t going to do the trick 🙂
  3. It measures SUCCESS!   Most important!  If you show your potential clients that you are willing to invest in YOU, they will be more apt to gain your trust and it shows them that you have the means to invest in them!  People want to surround themselves with successful people.

So what’s next?  Call me at 561-350-4219 for a free consultation or set up an appointment.   It’s my job to create an image that fits your style, brand and personality!  I want to make you look like your best you!   My studio is in Boynton Beach but I would be glad to book in your place of business too.

Little Miss J and her family came to see me in my Boynton Beach studio a few weeks ago.  She was only four days old and such a delight!  Her brother made me work for it!  We managed to get this beautiful newborn baby girl and her family updated portraits.   I am currently booking February 2018 due dates!  Please call or email me with details on newborn portrait sessions!  #justtoseeyousmilephotography Photographer: www.justtoseeyousmile.com

Calling all business professionals! (and anyone who uses social media for networking)  I can’t tell you enough how important it is to present yourself with a professional headshot.  Showing your clients that you are willing to invest in yourself will help them trust what you have to say as a business professional.  More importantly, it might get you the appointment!  If you haven’t updated your  business headshot in the last 2 years (or ten!) now is the time!  Please call me for a FREE consultation to talk about the branding of your business so that we can get you a quality professional headshot to  put your best foot forward!  Here is a recent example I did for Family Homes by Design located in Boca Raton (https://www.facebook.com/FamilyHomesbyDesign/).    Good luck and wish you all a prosperous new year!

 

 

 

It’s time to teach an old dog new tricks 🙂  We are making changes in 2018 and we hope you like what you see!  Stay tuned for featured sessions that will be added here this year!    To start, I am featuring this families reunion session that took place in December.  “Reunion” sessions are only called that because they typically happen when families get together for special occasions.  Most families have loved ones that live out of the area so we want to let everyone know we are here to document your family when they are able to get together.  Call us for a quote for any size family big or small 🙂  Just be sure to capture your family when the dynamic changes to update!  A marriage, a new baby’s arrival, or a big milestone birthday or anniversary are some great reasons to update your extended family portraits!
