Moving on Up – Kernersville Senior Pictures, Colfax Senior Photographer

Tonight I had such a nice time photographing an eight grader who is ready to move on up to high school in the fall.  I was so happy when her Mom purchased this package for her.  Often these mid teens years are ignored when it comes to photographing and they are just as important to remember as the baby, toddler, and high school Senior years.  S was a natural in front of the camera and had the most beautiful smile.  Thanks for allowing me to capture this time for you, S family.

The love of a parent – Kernersville Newborn Photography, Greensboro Newborn Portraits

The love of a parent for their child is something that is hard to put into words.  I always try to write my children letters that they can read at a later time and I encourage other parents to give it a try.  I want to celebrate this special love this Valentine’s day.  I am holding a contest for a newborn petite shoot.

The contest is open to all pregnant Mommies (or Daddies).  To enter, email me a love letter to your unborn child to enter.  A winner will be chosen from the entrants and will receive a one hour newborn session.   Additionally, they will also receive an 10×13 of one image from the session with a quote from their letter added to the image.  Deadline to enter is February 13th and the winner will be contacted on Valentine’s day.   The session will occur in the first 5-10 days after your miracle arrives.

To enter, email me your story at contest@christinaevansphotography.com

Please spread the word and celebrate LOVE this month.

 

 

Warmly,

2012 in Review – Kernersville Newborn Portraits, High Point Newborn Photography

It has been a wonderful year!  Thank you to all of my clients who trusted me to capture your memories for you.  From my regular clients, to my Mommy and Me and Shoot for Sandy clients, it has been wonderful getting to know you all (and see some of you return).  I wish you all the best in 2013.  It is bittersweet for me as I put these together knowing I will focus mostly on newborns and seniors this year, but I am so, so excited for the new direction and the passion I have for it.  Warm regards to you all!

Happy Halloween – Greensboro Photographer, Picture Tips and Tricks

Happy Halloween Friends!  I hope that it is a fun and safe one.  I am sure your kids are all ready to go and their costumes are picked out, so here are a few tips and tricks to get better pictures of them tonight!

1) Turn off the flash – natural light (or at least non-direct non-harsh light) is always more flattering.

2) On that note, start earlier than right before trick or treat time.  Kids want to GO and it gets darks FAST this time of year!  Sunset is at 6:26PM here in NC tonight, so I would start at 5:45, get some great pics and then trick or treat right as dusk settles in:)

3) Look at the sky and see if you can find where the light is coming from (tip: find the sun:)or the west) and face your subject in that direction.  If you are inside, find a window that still has some light coming in, just make sure it is not too harsh (i.e. you can not see the outline of the window in a shadow on the floor).

4) Outside, choose a dark background to make your subject stand out.  Inside, choose a solid background, such as a hanging blanket.

5) Focus on your subjects face and let the camera meter off of that.  You don’t want a dark or light subject and an exposed background!

6) Get down on their level – squat and shoot at their eye level.  It allows for a better picture and allows you to manipulate the background (such as remove roads, etc. or other things that would have shown up if you were shooting down).

Hope that was helpful!  I still am working on my beginner’s DSLR class, so look for that in the new year which will expand even further on how to get better pics of those babies!

I can not post without  a pic, so here is one from my terrible cell phone camera, but using all of the tips above it is a keeper (even if google over-sharpened it a touch):)

Stay safe,

Newborn, Maternity, and Senior Specialist – Christina Evans Photography

Greensboro Newborn Photography

I have a couple of announcements to make regarding some changes here at Christina Evans Photography.  A number of them are still in the works, but I wanted to take the time to make this one now since it has been weighing on me for a couple of months.

While I have loved the opportunity to photography so many Triad families and children over the past couple of years, I am excited to announce that Christina Evans Photography will only be accepting maternity, newborn and Senior clients in 2013.   While part of me is sad over this shift, I feel that it is best for myself and my business.  I am so excited to work on specializing in these areas and truly dedicate my time and energy (and resources) to become the best that I can as a newborn and senior photographer.  It will allow me to add session types that I have been moved to work on – like outdoor newborns!  I just have felt spread too thin trying to do everything and I feel that if I want to continue to be the best that I can be, it is time to dedicate myself to the areas of photography that moves and inspires me.  Of course, all sessions already booked will be honored:).

Children (and possibly family) sessions will likely be available as petite sessions at selected times during the year, so please follow me on Facebook and subscribe to my newsletter to be the first to know.
