CFPA Yearly Conference and Print Competition

competition.jpgI just got back from a Children and Family Photographers of America’s conference.  It was a four-day conference, jam-packed with information on working with children, photography workflow, controlling and experimenting with light, and marketing.  I took pages of notes and can’t wait to implement some of the ideas.

I also participated in the print competition they held.  “Flower Girl” received an above average rating from the judges; “Expectant Beauty” got an above average rating from the judges and received first place in the maternity category of the people’s choice awards (from my peers); and from the judges, “Darling Doll” received merit!  I was thrilled!

(Attached are “Flower Girl,” “Expectant Beauty,” and “Darling Doll.”)

meandbaby.jpgI did it again- I got Nathan behind the camera to photograph me.  The first time?  That was my maternity session.  And I loved the results of that.  So now I got him in the camera room again to photograph me with my new son.  Again, the results are gorgeous.  And I just had to share them with you here since I can’t put them on the site.  Here’s a few of the sweet moments we captured…


New Slogan

logo2.jpgWell, we finally decided on a new slogan for Shutter-Happy.  We’re moving from “Real-Life Children’s and Family Portraits” to…

“Celebrating Childhood, Celebrating Families”

Thanks so much to client Lori O’Connor of San Antonio who provided us with the idea for this slogan as part of our contest we started back in March.  As a thank you, we are presenting her family with a free session and a free wall portrait of any size to suit their home.  CONGRATS, Laurie!
