LYNCHBURG VA MINI SESSIONS - FAMILY PICTURES

I am so excited!  During my visit to my old stomping grounds in Lynchburg Va, I am offering a few mini sessions.

How does a mini session differ from a full session?
A regular photo sessions usually last an hour and a half to two hours in length and at the location of your choice. Mini sessions are conducted at a specific location and are 20 minutes in length.
May I book multiple mini sessions together?
You may book more than one session in a row. In fact, it is recommended that you book multiple sessions if you have three or more children.  Mini sessions are good for a group of 5 people or less.
What is the cost of the mini session?
The cost is $100 and will be due at the time of your scheduled session.
How do I sign up for a mini session?
Email me: victoriakphotography@mac.com Please let me know the number of children that will be in the mini session and their ages. Also, please include your mailing address and phone number.
What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of our mini session?
In case of inclement weather, mini photo sessions will be cancelled.  Since I don't live in Lynchburg, it will be too tough to try and reschedule. :(  However, I am going to try to make this a regular event each time I come into town for a visit!   
When will I receive my pictures/CD?
Please  allow at least 3 weeks for editing. Your pictures will then be mailed to you to the address provided in your email.
What to wear?
Select clothing that’s poppy, vibrant and fun! Choose colors that are deep, rich and intense! Use patterns, textures and layers to add visual interest. Textured fabrics, such as denim, cable knits, linen, and corduroy, photograph beautifully. Layers can be added and removed to create different looks in minimal time. When it comes to jeans, opt for the darkest indigo wash. These tend to be the most flattering and least dated looking. Think funky ties, scarves, jeans, cute hats, boots, button up shirts for boys. For girls, think whispy dresses over leggings or jeans and a cute shirt, maybe she wants to rock a tie too! Most importantly, we want everyone to be casual and comfortable in their attire.
What to bring?
All family members well napped and well fed! Any favorite dolly, teddy bear, car or blankie!  Baby wipes! A snack cup with your childs (or husbands) favorite snack or candy! (keep this part a secret)
When to arrive?
On-time of course! Please don’t be late as this will put us behind schedule. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early.
Don’t wait to sign up! This mini session will fill up fast!
I am looking forward to a successful day of mini sessions!

MY 6 MONTH OLD - PICTURES OF FAMILY

For all of you parents out there, I want you to know that my toughest job is photographing my own children!  It is very hard for me to be mommy & photographer all in one.  My first priority is mommy, and so when a nose starts to run, I have to put my camera down to wipe it, when a tear starts to fall, I have to put my camera down to catch it, and when a little one needs tickling to bring on the smiles, I have to put my camera down and get my fingers movin....and then when the smile flashes....woops...where is my camera?  On the ground!  So, be easy on yourselves....It is difficult, even for us professionals, to photograph our own children!  Can I get an AMEN fellow photogs!
Below are a few shots of my 6 month old. Trust me, we worked hard for these!

THE LITTLE THINGS - HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM! - PHOTOGRAPH

I really love to photograph the little things! Little fingers, chubby feet!  They are so precious and they change so fast! Sometimes photographing babies hands and feet can be a challange!  Especially the older they get, babies can move pretty quick, causing your photo to blur!  Having a good amount of light is key...but a trick is to give the child someting to hold onto...to slow them down!  Choose something that is pretty in and of itself!  Below is Violet!  We gave her a pretty pinecone to explore.  The pinecone slowed this clapping, happy 9 month old enough for me to photograph her tiny fingers and toes!  Enjoy the little things!

THE PERFECT STORM - CHILDREN PICTURES

When we first stepped foot on these beaches, we thought for sure we would be blown away! The winds were crazy and while everyone else was packing up their kids and fleeing the sceen, we were pulling out the swimsuit and sunglasses! We will let you laugh now! I am glad that we took the risk! The winds calmed down and we ended up with some great images! Oh the adventures of Photography!
