DIRECT DOWNLOADING ONLY as of September 1, 2015 https://www.acphotollc.com/blog/2015/9/direct-downloading-only With DVDs practically outdated I have made a logical decision;

As of September 1, 2015, AC Photography will NO LONGER be offering a disc to be purchased with services.

My services will only offer direct downloading.  This will allow me to continue to keep my prices reasonable and still offer my clients what they want;

  "All their pictures."  

 

I will continue to send specific instructions in each email once your Gallery is edited and ready for downloading. As always I encourage my clients to contact me with any questions or concerns.

 

Thank you to everyone for your continued support & business!

 

Please note:  Wedding Clients will only get USBs.

Edited Pic VS Proof (original image) https://www.acphotollc.com/blog/2014/6/edited-pic-vs-proof-original-image Often I get asked "Will my pictures be edited?" 

I like to tell my Clients that when I edit your image I am perfecting it. I am perfecting your favorite images to be displayed! :)

Here is a little more insight on my thoughts/technique of Editing my images....

Editing is a decision process and can be as simple as reviewing a series and deleting the bad shots, or doing a comparison between two or more to find the best shot. Editing can also include cropping for content. Then there is adjustments. Such as exposure and color corrections, or changing the color profile for a special image. Dodge and burn work is also very common, especially with the reduced dynamic range that digital photography has allowed for. Enhancements like skin tone, removing blemishes, removing busies/scratches (because we all know active toddlers have them!) and slimming certain areas.  Alterations to the photos content (removing an unwanted item in a image such as a hand or a fly away piece of hair). 

Every photographer has their own way of editing images. See below for a few examples of how I edit my images.

a NEWBORN session https://www.acphotollc.com/blog/2014/5/newborn-safety

 

As a newborn photographers I truly have the best job in the world. I get spend hours at a time snuggling, posing, and loving on babies that are just a few days old. I get to capture this fleeting time with my camera and provide parents (my Clients) with beautiful heirlooms they will treasure forever. But just as much as you will adore your images, your newborn session (often their first family outing with their new bundle of joy) is a memory that you will keep with you for years to come, as well. Creating a loving and safe environment is My responsibility as photographers and I guarantee every time my clients view their images their thoughts will immediately go back to their session and time spent with them. So here are just a few of my tips and tricks for successful and safe newborn sessions.

 

 

 

 

Newborn Safety in the photography community is always a big discussion. I get many Newborn parents asking for certain poses. During each newborn session I like to educated my clients and remind that that safety always comes first. The safety and well being of our littlest clients needs to come first before the pursuit of our artistic vision. My most requested pose is baby holding head up on hands (below)  Shots like these are called composites. I take (2) images and combine them to make one shot. Lots of editing is involved to get the final product.


Before every session I remind myself that this new little life is someone’s gift from God. I try to treat each little one that comes through my studio is if they were my own. I remember how madly in love I was with my six day old babies. How all I wanted to do was lay awake at night and watch them breathe. The last thing I would ever want to see would be someone trying to get them into a pose that seemed visibly uncomfortable or try something that was unsafe just so they could “get the shot.”   This also goes for all prop shots, too. I always have mom or dad be an active participant in our sessions together. For safety’s sake I like to have my parents directly involved in their baby’s well being. When doing images involving props such as baskets or buckets, I always explain to mom that I “don’t have Go Go Gadget” arms and can’t reach through my camera in the event that their baby startles. I always have mom or dad sitting right outside of the shot and will often do composites if it’s not safe for mom or dad to remove their hand for an image.

With every pose I do, I’m constantly checking baby’s comfort level. If I try a pose and baby fusses or seems visibly uncomfortable I will move on to my next position. Never put a baby in a pose that they struggle against. Some babies love being curled up with their chubby feet up by their chin. Others love stretching out their little legs. They are all unique individuals with unique likes and dislikes. Some love to be swaddled. Some like to have their hands by their face. What works for one might not always work  for another. Be flexible and photograph them in what they are comfortable in and I promise their comfort will translate into a beautiful, peaceful image.

 

Throughout newborn sessions I constantly check for these three things:

  • --- Is baby warm enough? Is the space heater a safe distance from the baby and are they comfortable with the temperature?  Keeping baby cozy is huge for a successful newborn session, but the heater must always be kept at a safe distance.
  • --- Does baby’s circulation look  good? Are all limbs nice and pink? With some poses, arms or legs can get pinched and babies can lose good circulation quickly. It’s my job to make sure that baby is comfortable and safe in every pose I do.
  • --- Since I love to photograph with so many gorgeous fabrics and textures, there is often a lot of fuzz flying around my studio. Because of this, I’m constantly checking baby’s little fingers and toes for any stray fur that might get wrapped around them. I also like to remind mom and dad to check their toes once again before they get them dressed and loaded back into their carrier at the end of the session.

Newborn babies are little miracles!!  And when a Client entrusts me the opportunity to photograph them, I am truly honored. I go into every session with this perspective in mind and  provide my clients not only with gorgeous images of their brand new baby, but great memories of their time with you as well.
