I am always so impressed with mamas who have an amazing sense of style and can decorate a nursery that looks like it is out of the pages of a fashion magazine. I’m the type to slap a few pictures up on the wall and call it a day. Lol! I get so overwhelmed with all of the options out there and I freeze. And don’t get my started on Pinterest. It’s too much for someone suffering from shiny object syndrome.

This newborn session was all sorts of pretty in pink. Two sweet girls and big sister genuinely loves her new baby. As they say, thank goodness for little girls!

When the weather doesn’t quite cooperate for a lifestyle family session, it’s amazing to be able to head inside. I love shooting in a client’s home. Yes, it can present some challenges. Light can be tricky, but that’s what makes it so rewarding. I think so many of us worry that the house isn’t pretty enough. Guess what, it doesn’t really matter! Honestly. All I am really looking for is light. For this family session, we stuck close to a big window right in the living room and got so many amazing images!

I’m so excited for this special offer! If you are planning on booking a session this spring or summer with your fave NJ family photographer, you’re going to want to book it now!

Spring & Summer Family Sessions Now Booking! NJ Family Photographer - www.stacymaephotography.com

From now until April 15, 2016 anyone who books a session will get $200 to spend on prints and products! That’s right! Pay your deposit now and when your session rolls around it will magically turn into a print credit.

Here’s how it’ll work. Click ADD TO CART below and pay your session deposit. I’ll email you to confirm that I’ve received it and we’ll chat about when you’d like to set up your session. It can be any time from now until the end of September.

After your session, your deposit will turn into a print credit. Isn’t that awesome?! There will be a special a la carte menu to order from that includes prints, wall portraits, and canvases. It’s like getting an extra $200 worth of beautiful pictures to fill your walls or give as gifts!

This offer is good until Friday, April 15, 2016 and may be used for a child, family, or newborn session.

Details – Just a quick heads up that I only book 2 Saturday sessions a month so most families schedule their shoot on a weekday. Since I usually only see my clients once a year, they treat our session as a special occasion and either take the day off or leave early. You’d do it for a doctor’s appointment, right? Plus, it’s an excuse to spend some special time together and maybe grab ice cream after! Outdoor sessions are scheduled about 2 hours before sunset. In home sessions are scheduled weekday mornings. If you’d like to know more about me, what to expect during a session, or pricing info, check out my Client Info Guide. The password is 2016. Your deposit is non-refundable and cannot be used for a session after September 30, 2016.

Click & Capture Your Everyday - Online Photography Course for moms who want to learn how to capture their kids with confidence and creativity. www.clickandcaptureyoureveryday.com

Today is the last day to take advantage of the early bird bonuses for Click & Capture Your Everyday! Yesterday, I answered some FAQ’s and today I want to show you what enrolling in the course has done for Dawn. She takes a ton of pictures of her adorable little girl, but she was frustrated with her results, like so many of us!! Documenting her daughter is important to her and here’s why she decided to take the leap and enroll in the course.

“I have been obsessed with taking pics of my daughter from day one and have wanted to improve my photos artistically….less posed and centered and more interest as far as composition and natural lighting. More depth and meaning to my photos is also something I want to master. I want to look back at these photos years from now and remember how I felt at that moment….rather than a posed cheese smile photo lol. And I want my daughter to have beautiful photos to look back at also when she is older. As soon as I saw you were offering a course I hounded my hubby to get it for me for christmas smile emoticon So glad he did!”

And she’s taking amazing photos. Want to see proof? Here’s a BEFORE picture she sent me.

It’s still an adorable shot, but the light is wrong. See those dark shadows? There is no light in her eyes. That’s one of the things we talk about in Week 4 of the course – how to find pretty light indoors and out. Light is everything in photography!! Even if you’re shooting with a cell phone.

And here’s the proof. Here’s a shot she took during the course this fall.

Can you see the difference? Pretty awesome, huh? And all it takes is a little practice and understanding how light works. You can totally do this!!

Here’s what another student had to say.

“Stacy provided tons of useful info to help me better understand my camera and shooting in various settings. I definitely feel more confident with my camera now. She made her videos and workbooks very easy to understand and gave us many extras which I personally loved. For instance favorite photo apps, iPhone camera tips, fave places to get photos printed and much more. She was so involved with us. The Facebook group was also an added bonus because she was always there to answer questions and give feedback.”

And I’ve got some awesome new bonuses this time around too! A posing guide that you can access on the go. That’s right – ideas and inspiration that you can use when you’re stuck in a rut photographing your own kids. You’ll get a link to download the app to your phone! Plus, I’m also including a behind-the-scenes video of how I edit and cull a family session. Culling simply means choosing which images to save and which ones to delete. In this digital age you gotta be a little choosy. I know it’s hard when you’re looking at pictures of your adorable little kiddos, but your computer will thank you:)

Those two bonuses will disappear after midnight tonight. They will not be offered again so don’t miss out!! Plus, the course goes up $50 tomorrow so you’ll be getting in at the early bird pricing too!!

I really believe that this course is different than a lot of what’s offered out there. If you want to tap into the emotional side of photography and start creating images that capture your children as the truly are and learn to appreciate the beauty of the little things we take for granted everyday, then join me!!
