Spring Sessions

Spring in the south is the PERFECT time to plan your session. Everything is in bloom, its warm but not HOT…like H-O-T hot. The property at my studio is the prettiest in Spring. I love everything about it. The fresh green grass, clusters of flowers. Everything just feels so fresh and new and pretty. If you haven’t booked your Spring session, don’t worry! There is still time. Contact me on my facebook page or at www.dt-photography.com to schedule yours. Take a look at some of these amazing sessions I’ve had in the past couple of weeks from our flower swing, child sessions, to family and couples…along with a small wedding. What’s not to love about this time of year.

What to Wear…Spring

Every season I try to put out a post about what to wear for your family session. Trending colors, patterns, and solids that work for the season and for your family dynamic. When you book your session, I always ask “Do you know what you’re wearing yet?” If not…I am here to help! If you have and show it to me or have questions, we can make it work for you. Always imagine your groupings. Family as a whole, kids together, mom and kids, dad and kids…and couples! Ready to book your spring, early summer, session? Contact me for more information here: DT-Photography

Florals and solids in a variety of great spring colors. Teal and darker spring colors are in this season. Pair these colors with khakis or light colored jeans for the perfect spring feel. Patterns can be mixed to add great visual appeal and paired with solids always tie it all together. Mom and baby both have patterns but they are subtle enough and match perfectly.

Mint is an amazing color, it pairs so well with lighter colors as well as coral and even orange! Try some non traditional colors to add some much needed eye candy to your photos. Spring in North Carolina is so pretty and you’ll want to match it while also standing out.

1 Month Old Newborn…

At what age do you consider a baby a newborn? A few days, a week, a month…or even a year!?! Did you sing it too? I feel like in Newborn Photography babies are always in that 7-14 day range for their session. They are more bendy, meaning its easier to get them in those poses you see all the time. When Osmar’s mommy told me he was a year old, I automatically went in to the session prepared he wasn’t going to be able to get all the poses I wanted but let me tell you…this little boy was a rockstar for his session. I love the eye contact he gave me and ALL the smiles. He was so content and happy, now this might just be his personality and not all 1 month olds will love me this much but for now, I am just going to pretend like they do. If you are ready to book your “newborn” up to a month old…let me know. Contact me at DT-Photography for more information and a copy of my newborn guide.

Look at this smile!! He melts my heart.

Growing…

Growing as a photographer is non stop. Learning new things, trying new things, and offering new services. I always want to be able to do more. Photography is not an easy job. Yes it is flexible and yes I get to work from home but there is so much that goes in to it. Every year since I started my photography journey, I have invested in a photography class or workshop. They have covered everything from shooting in manual (waaaay early on in my journey at a landscape course in Germany). How to work with lighting and models at another workshop. Newborn courses (don’t let anyone fool you, its the hardest of them all…but also the sweetest) Editing classes, more lighting classes, all of that on top of countless hours and years of practice. Newborn for me has been the hardest to master and I am still learning. Where exactly do those fingers go, how should the light placement be, wrapping…oh lord the wrapping. If anything gets me, its wrapping a baby! As the years come and go I have definitely gotten better and I love (and maybe a little cringe) the early photos, I’ve come a long ways but still have a long ways to go. I will forever keep learning and getting better for my clients. I will forever invest in props that make your sessions more beautiful and on trend. And I will forever keep creating a relaxing atmosphere for both you and your baby. I you are interested in booking a newborn session with me, contact me at DT-Photography for more information. Want to see some where I started and where I am now? Let’s take a fun look!

That harsh flat lighting and crazy color combo was never in style in 2015 but I worked what I thought was magic. I was happy with the photos but I knew I was no where near where I should be. I had cheap lighting that did nothing for me though I felt like it did. I struggled for so long trying to get images that were close to what I needed with what I could afford at the time. Since then I have invested in some amazing lighting, some great props, and have learned so much.

I love newborns and have put a lot of time and investment into giving you a great experience. There are other photographers out there who may be cheaper but they might not be able to give you the quality, patience, and service that DT-Photography provides. I look forward to working with your newborn in the future.

Baby Ava…

I had the cutest little newborn in my studio for her very first session. Newborn sessions are some of my favorites because I get to hold and see those cute little babies. Ava was such a beautiful girl but she was not a sleepy girl. She wanted those bright eyes open to see the world around her. I love all the faces they make when they are awake with eyes wondering around the room checking everything out. Miss Ava was a little older than some of my other newborns and that is OK! I’ll photograph your “newborn” anytime. If your baby has already been born and you need a session contact me at DT-Photography!

Ava loved to feed and go right to sleep, pose for a bit and repeat. She would stay asleep through one setup and then would make us work for it all over again. Patience is key when it comes to newborns, I never know if I am going to get a sleepy baby, awake baby, baby who doesn’t mind being naked or would rather be wrapped! They are all so different and Miss Ava liked just about everything…well once her little belly was full. If you would like to book your session, it’s never to early!

Waiting for you…

This is the second time I have gotten to photograph this amazing couple and each one has been beautiful and special. But this session isn’t just any ol’ session, we are capturing the hope, the love, and the excitement of this sweet little rainbow baby boy. This is a baby they have been waiting for and I am looking forward to photographing him soon!

Newborn Studio

Newborns…the first stage of life and man is it the cutest stage! Those tiny lips, fingers, and feet, squishy bellies, and back rolls. Babies change so quickly. Hair changes colors or grows in more. Their eyes start to turn to their true color and you can see who they start to favor more in the family. With newborns growing so fast, it’s the perfect time to take their photos. Professional photographers are a great investment for capturing these moments. DT-Photography has spent time mentoring under some great newborn photographers, continuously getting education for lighting and poses and keeps up to date with all the latest “newborn trends”.

This past year my focus was on my newborn studio and making it everything I needed it to be for my clients. From quality fabrics and wraps to sweet little newborn outfits. I use both props and bean bag posing. The moment you decide to book a newborn session with DT-Photography, I send a newborn guide to help you understand the process. We then go over poses, ideas, colors, props, and family members that may want to be in the photos. If you are interested in booking a newborn session, simply contact me at DT-Photography for more information.

Want to take a look at my newborn studio?

There is so much to choose for your newborn(s). Do you want colors to match the baby or the nursery? Military themed? Babies can be naked, wrapped, or wear a newborn outfit. I have a variety of options to choose from to include headbands. Take a glimpse into a few of my favorite newborn outfits.

If you are expecting or hope to be this year…contact DT-Photography for more information, a great experience and lasting memories.

New Year, Big Changes

A little over 4 years ago, me and my husband purchased an old house in Olivia to renovate into the DT-Photography Studio. What a big opportunity this was for my business in regards to what I could now offer my clients. As good as it was, it definitely needed a lot of work. We started slow and got most of the outdoor area cleaned up by cutting down trees, cutting back overgrown bushes and cleared some wisteria that was taking over. We redid some electrical and some plumbing, ripped out old carpet. The inside walls, trim and fireplace got a makeover with some fresh paint. All these little things have added up but I haven’t felt like its ever been quite ready to do a big reveal. This year, I feel like we are there! In the coming weeks I will be showing what we have done since we first bought, what we call, the “Olivia House” I am excited for anyone who hasn’t been to my studio before to see what we have to offer for your photo session experience, those that haven’t been in a while to see the new items and remodeled rooms that suit your needs and returning clients to always feel like DT-Photography is doing what we can to always give you the best with new ideas, props, and so much more. If you want a truly unique experience, let’s discuss a session. Contact me at DT-Photography

Before: Stay tuned for afters…

Fall, where did you go?

Fall came and went so quickly! North Carolina stays so warm during what would be the normal fall season and then quickly runs right into the Christmas holiday before we even know it! Luckily because of this weather, I am still able to do fall sessions in December. Who cares if its almost Christmas, there’s still time to do a gorgeous fall themed session. Want more information? Contact me at DT-Photography to chat. Lets take a look at some of my fall sessions from this year.

Wooded and field locations have great fall foliage starting as early as October even if it is still in the 80’s! It really makes it hard to dress for fall photos, when it’s still so warm but these families pull it off effortlessly.

What is my favorite place for fall sessions? The BARN! I love everything about it, the rustic-ness, the field, the beautiful trees and weeds around it, everything just screams fall in North Carolina to me. I am so thankful to the family that lets me use it to photograph all these wonderful families for their fall memories.

Full Family Sessions

When you’re choosing a family session most people are always considering the price before anything else. But what does a full session include that a mini session doesn’t? It allows for more time and all those sweet in between moments that I love to capture! I adore family sessions…the togetherness, the warmth, the love. ALL of it! You children are only young once, your babies are only babies for a little while, you’ll change so much year after year and its worth it to spend this time together. Want to book a family session? There’s still time! Contact me at DT-Photography for more information and to schedule a session.
