Covid School Year 2020

This school year is definitely one for the books, am I right? Who would have thought there would be a time when our children wouldn’t be able to go to school. With no school, they miss out on so much. Whether its their first year in school as a kindergartner or their last year of school as a senior…and all the in betweens of starting a new school like middle or high school for the first time. This also means, the first year where your children won’t have their yearbook or school photos taken, its not just back to school photos, its their “virtual learning” school photos for the year. Its a perfect way to remember this year for your child. Thanks for all the families who came out so far to get their child’s school photos done for the 2020-2021 school year. These sessions can continue throughout Fall, if you are interested in booking one for your child, please contact me at DT-Photography.

Oh Boy…Cake Smashes!

So many boys with their cake smash sessions lately with some great themes! Each cake smash session is planned perfectly from the theme to the cake! Whether you have personalized things you want to use from their party or DT-Photography can take care of it all! Need to schedule a Cake Smash to remember your child’s first birthday? Simply contact me at DT-Photography and we’ll start planning your session.

Dylan Turns One! Dylan is often referred to as Dyl in his house so it only made sense that he have a dill pickle party theme! How cute is that? I contacted my cake lady and asked her to make a “pickle cake” we didn’t want it to taste like pickles but just have some cute pickles on top made of rice crispies.

Deacon & Brooks Turn One! TWINS! And these little guys were the cutest little things ever…I mean, just look at all their rolls.

Sweet 16

What a year to be 16! You can’t really have a big party or get together without worrying about the dreaded pandemic. It’s affected so much in our daily lives that we probably usually take for granted. 16 is a big number for a teenager…getting your drivers license, maybe working for the first time, and a new found sense of independence. Its a great year but does this year worrying about Covid-19, does it make it harder to enjoy? I love that Calise’s mom booked her a sweet 16 session to help her remember this year and make it a little more special. Want to do the same for your child or family? Simply contact me at DT-Photography on how to book a session.

Baby Gavin

Having newborns back in the studio has been so amazing and this little guy was the sweetest! I honestly don’t think I have seen a baby smile more than Gavin. I think its a testament to his easy going personality. If you are interested in booking a newborn session, contact me at DT-Photography.

Peachy Keen

This session has been a year in the making. To me, peaches scream summer more than watermelon. I grew up climbing my favorite peach tree, even reaching so far to get one of the last peaches of the summer, that I lost grip and fell. That took me on my first ever hospital experience that ended in a cast for a badly sprained wrist. Needless to say that when summer finally came this year, I was prepared. I wanted something peach, summery, and boho-ish. Getting to use the vintage truck and decorating it with greenery, peaches, and soft colors made me fall in love with the vision I had that had just came to life. If you’re wanting to book a summer peach session contact me @ dt-photography today. These sessions are only available for a limited time.

2020 Graduates

So many missed out on something that may seem trivial in the world today. From Preschool to Kindergarten, 5th grade and seniors. I admit, when they announced school closures I only thought about the seniors who work so hard for 13 years of their lives to have a moment taken away from them that signified them being finished. I didn’t really think about the other grades who miss out on them, even though I have a 5th grade son myself. 5th grade graduates is a huge deal, going on to middle school can seem daunting. And those cute little preschoolers moving to kindergarten…that’s big boy/big girl stuff right there! So take a minute and recognize those kids, who knows what next year will bring with schools but this year has definitely been a monumental one. Congratulations to all the 2020 Graduates, big and small.

What to Wear: Summer Guide

I have lots of time right now…like…lots of it to work on things for my business. New sessions to offer, returning sessions that are my most popular and organizing and cleaning the studio. But what I haven’t done is anything for my clients and those excited about booking sessions once the “stay home” order is lifted. So I came up with a What to Wear: Summer Guide to help you plan your best outfits for great prices. I know I have said before how much I LOVE shopping at Amazon. Are you aware that small town shops and boutiques can have an amazon store?! This makes it easy for you to support businesses with all the guarantees of amazon. And what about that Prime shipping? You really can’t do much better than that! So with that said, lets take a look at some outfits that go together in combinations you might not have though of. Patterns and colors, don’t be afraid of them! Much like fall you can bring out so many great colors, just keep them brighter or softer instead of muted tones. Remember to picture yourself with everyone for individual and group shots. Mom with both kids, father/son, mother/ daughter, couples etc. Make sure everyone matches without being the exact same. Have any questions about your session outfit? Contact me at DT-Photography or through my Facebook page for advice! Any link provided is an affiliate link and I may earn a small commission off anything bought through the link.

Lets start with a safer color and design choice of outfits. While I went with the traditional Man/Woman/Son/Daughter you can add or subtract however you need. If you have older kids or younger than what is shown, you should still be able to draw from these ideas!

Why this works for anyone…This dress can be great for women of all shapes. The V-neck and cinched waist right under your bust can accentuate anyone. Pair with a cute strappy sandal and roll your sleeves up. Keep things simple and matching without being too match’y. Pull in light blues in multiple places without everyone wearing them in the same order. Dark on top, light on bottom goes great with dad’s light on top/dark on bottom without clashing. Perfect for father son shots. Find the dress here: https://amzn.to/39WXOBu Teen boy shirt: https://amzn.to/3eekfFl Boy Shorts: https://amzn.to/39ZUEg0

Burgundy is such a great color, it stands out against all the green of grass and trees. Its such a great rich color for the summer time. You can tone it down with neutrals and pinks.

For any age group you can find great items for girls and boy from toddler to teen! Tween to Teen girls can find great off the shoulder solid burgandy or floral prints much like the little boys button up. If you have a teen boy, choose a pair of burgandy shots with a plain or printed shirt. Men can stay neutral with white/creams/khakis to tie everything together. Take the ideas and see what you can find. Womens Kimono can be found here: https://amzn.to/2Rpnss0 Girls Romper: https://amzn.to/2yIRU9Z and men’s linen shirt: https://amzn.to/2yJGzGG

Yellows are the ultimate summer-y color. You can pair it with light colors, brown, neutrals and blacks. I love yellow in wild flowers and in greenery, its a great compliment to any outdoor session. Aim for a mustard or darker yellow instead of a bright yellow.

This look has a more dressy casual feel to it. A mens henley shirt with the sleeves pulled up and some nice casual brown dickies are what keeps this look from being too over powering. For women of all sizes, this oversized casual dress is both beautiful and comfy. Pair with a great strappy sandal and long necklace to complete the look. Bring in the pops of yellow in the children. If you cannot pull off the yellow color, its a great way to bring it into outfit colors to compliment you. I love amazon for the little girl outfits you can find!

Green and orange have an island vibe and are the color trend of the season. Green and orange compliment each other perfectly for summer. Blend in perfectly to a green scenery adding in lighter colors and a little bit of orange.

Women of any size can benefit from this dress, it hugs in all the right places while still being flowy. For men and boys, try finding shorts or pants in orange and green to spice it up a bit from your traditional khaki and blue jeans.

Baby Landri

Newborn snuggles. They are THE BEST. I love every time your newborn comes to my studio for their very first photo session. So small and squishy, I always forget how tiny they are until I am holding one in my arms again. I love creating sessions that show your little newborn just how they are in their first few weeks of life. Baby Landri was so sweet. Even though she just wanted to eat and eat she was finally full enough to fall asleep and let us get some amazing photos of her.

If you are looking to capture your newborn with a studio session please contact me at DT-Photography for more information. You’ll receive a Maternity/Newborn guide that will let you know what to expect, planning, and pricing. To see more of Baby Landri, keep scrolling here!

Let it snow…Let it snow

If you read my blog post about what I got for christmas…you’ll know I got a snow machine! How fun is that? Its North Carolina and we know that it takes a lot for us to get snow but this machine is a game changer! It looks like beautiful snow! Perfect for winter sessions and even Frozen Sessions 🙂 Meredith wanted to look like a princess for her 4th birthday and dress up in a dress she picked out all on her own. Throw in a little snow and you have a recipe for an amazing session. All photos from this session were taken with my new amazing lens as well! Want to book a snow session for your child or your family? Contact me at DT-Photography for more information.

With her session, we also had to get one family snow picture and an amazing couples photo!

Sitter Session Perfection

I hardly ever get clients in who want to do a sitter session with their children. Babies change so much between newborn and 1 year and that makes it so important to take the in betweens! Capture their growing hair, their tiny little teeth that are coming in. Their personalities and chubbiness! So much cuteness that swill be gone before you know it.

Most ages from 5-10 months work perfectly for these sessions Choose an outfit and have a simple session of just your child that show’s who they are. Want to book a session for your child? Contact me at DT-Photography for information on sessions and pricing.
