Newborn Portraits with Baby Cantalini Day 5

Newborn portraits with Baby Cantalini on her 5th day have us all kinds of happy (and judging by her sweet smile, she’s quite joy-filled too!)

A little milk break and this mini was ready for her mid-morning rest. Seriously, is there anything sweeter than the blessing of a brand new baby?

We have never seen such a calm and composed couple of a first born; proud new parents Molly and Kyle are clearly made for this. Fun fact - we photographed Kyle’s Senior Pictures way back in the day and this is the ultimate full circle moment for us getting to welcome his growing family back to the studio.

TIPS:

  1. Grooming is always encouraged - pampering your pet makes them look and feel their best on camera.

  2. Leash and kennel are an excellent way to make sure that you have a minute to focus on your self before, during and after the session as needed.

  3. Plan for treats and be sure to let the studio know if you have any special needs. Be certain to give us a heads up if your fur baby has any physical restrictions or personality points that we should be aware of in advance of your shoot. ie Likes Mom Best, Teething, Bad Hip.

Finally… do not leave your husband (below) to play with your props, your middle child and your 20 year old cat.

Oh Boy! Great Family Portraits with your Fellas

Oh Boy! Ready for great Family Portraits with your fellas? We are too.

Studio B Portraits_handsome brothers in suits studio photo.jpg

Believe it or not, your boy does not hate having his picture taken. That revelation is typically a huge surprise to Mom’s of boys as they watch their sons play in front of our cameras. Many times what we find is that what he actually dislikes is the THOUGHT of having his portrait made. There is a big difference and we’d love to help you get the memories of your son that you treasure. Here’s how…

 Studio B Portraits specializes in portraits of men and boys of all ages.

Studio B Portraits specializes in portraits of men and boys of all ages.

Steps to capturing a great portrait of your son… advice from your experienced photographer.

  1. Set the portrait session appointment and keep the discussion to a bare minimum. Less words is key.

  2. Communicate how important this is for YOU when you show him what he’s wearing. The goal is to let your son know that he is giving you a gift. His portrait is not about him, it’s about you. (Heavy application of Mom guilt can be applied as necessary)

  3. On the day of the shoot, you should ignore the grumblings with a firm belief that the process will not kill them… but if he gives you too much trouble… you might.

  4. Sit back relax and enjoy the show. Be ready for the shock and awe that will hit you as your boy comes to life and dare we say it… HAS FUN.

  5. After the session, head out for lunch/dinner together. Talk about all of the silly and special moments that just made your whole day. Every time you see the portraits on your wall, you’ll be reminded of this family experience and how much he loved it (and you)

First, let’s just begin with acknowledging that family portraits is a perfect reason to get dressed up and it does not have to be any more clever than that. With the exception of A-list celebrities and supermodels, most of us do not walk around in designer gowns but let’s be honest.. it’s fun to play “red carpet” for a day with the people you love and have amazing portraits to remember the occasion.

When Senior Portraits Meets Old Hollywood Charm

Riddle me this: what do you get when you combine the epic debonair style of Old Hollywood with contemporary charm?

Answer: a Senior Portrait Experience that will go down in history!

When Fabiano walked in to the Studio, we were immediately impressed with his confidence and enthusiasm. This Issaquah High School senior was rocking a Cary Grant inspired wardrobe, and we knew this was going to be a shoot to remember. Talk about a lights, camera, action moment!

Fabi’s navy blue suit, classic white dress shirt, and trendy bow tie combo is the perfect spin on Old Hollywood charm! When thinking of your own wardrobe, choose pieces that are well-tailored…not only does this present flawlessly, but it also keeps things more comfortable for you (assuming a suit isn’t your daily attire…comfort is key, even when making an epic impression;)

Dream Family Portraits | Fall at Studio B Portraits feat. the Campbells

Fall has swept us away once again with it’s gorgeous colors and perfect light- can I get an “AMEN” from all my other PNW autumn lovers?! And as much as this season inspires me to light a candle and drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte, it makes me even more excited to pick up a camera and make some magic with our amazing Studio B families.

Would you even believe that we adventured with the Campbell family to this cliff-side location just minutes from our studio space in downtown Issaquah?! And holy smokes, this family is as fun as they are stunning.

Campbell_beautiful family cliffside fall portraits.jpg

We had no lack of laughter and fun moments during our Family Portrait Session with these four. Their adoration for each other was clear - we were just thrilled to be apart of it for an afternoon!

OUTFIT 01. Your senior portraits will be taken to a whole new level of sophistication when you step out in your favorite gown, looking like you just might belong in next year’s Hollywood edition of Vanity Fair. This stunning Issaquah High School senior took our breath away in her delicate cream colored dress!

Pro Tip: keep the preparation for your Vanity Fair attire simple by re-wearing your favorite homecoming dress or prom gown! You deserve another chance to shine in one of those favorite dresses!

OUTFIT 02. Sammie kept one of her outdoor looks styled in black and white for a city chic vibe, pairing an adorable peplum top with white jeans and street style black booties. These simple choices allowed for fun pops of color in her background, which allowed all eyes to stay on this senior stunner!

Pro Tip: when you keep your outfit colors neutral, it gives even more opportunity to play around with fun textures and silhouettes!

OUTFIT 03. Boho meets contemporary with this third outfit, and we are in love! This gal knew that this deep shade of blue would compliment her hair and skin fabulously. And can we just give a shout out to that Beyonce breeze though Sammie’s hair. Flawless.

Pro Tip: Sammie wore the same chic pair of white denim for both looks two and three, and the variety in tops allowed each outfit to be independently unique! Repeating base items among looks can cut down on the number of clothing items you bring while still being able to rock it!

OUTFIT 04. Sophisticated simplicity is the key to Sammie’s final outfit! This look aired on a cute and casual side, giving fun variety and depth to her four wardrobe choices. Sometimes your favorite pair of denim and a fun blouse is just what you need to know you are a 10/10!

Pro Tip: bringing a prop adds a personalized flair to your Senior Portrait Experience!
