What A Typical Shooting Star Family Shoot Looks Like!

Here’s another family shoot that was done last fall. I told you I was behind on getting things up on this blog, eh?  This family came all the way from Medford, Burlington County.  We started at the studio, here at Shooting Star in Salem County, South Jersey and then we went to a beautiful scouted location that is near my home.  I love all my locations!  These are scouted for their light, their elements. I love rustic, I love barn-styled shoots, I love nature!  This has it all..  Plus, when shooting in midday sun… this place gives you protection from the harsh!  It’s a win win!  I wanted to put together what a typical set or session looks like on here!

I hope that you enjoy and really see what goes behind what I do!  There were even more images in the final product, but I wanted to put together a bit of variety as what a typical hour session entails.  I believe we went under an hour here.  Which is what I try to do! I know the kids are only patient for a certain amount of time!!

The dog was also included in this fall shoot!  Well, because the furry babies are part of the family too!  This was a fun set to do! I am posting a lot of photos from this shoot.  I think mom got a total of 60 images from this!  That’s how beautiful they turned out!

I love adding a few artistic elements while keeping the beauty of the imagery intact.  My goal is to get everything perfect in camera so that I don’t have to sit around and edit everything!  I think my total 60 images only took about one hour to edit, which in photography terms, is excellent!  Especially, with the imagery I was able to create with this set!

Cuteness alert!  I love this casual photograph!

I have written books and blogged about places to check out all around South Jersey, so I truly know all the cool and unique spots to photograph at!! FYI, we were the only ones here!  There is also a lake here for those romantic shots that some folks adore!

I truly treasure my clients!!! I go in with a great plan… and well, you see how the images turn out!  Plus, I am great with kids, having two little ones myself!!! I think that’s a true difficulty that some photographers face these days, is connecting with the children!

I love the black and white matte look!

My goal is to provide a boutique-level of service!  From start to finish!  I’m here to make the whole experience a fun and professional one!  I enjoy communicating with my clients and getting to know them prior to the shoot!  It helps in that everyone feels more relaxed and this in turn creates stunning images!  I don’t know many folks who like to get their photos taken… Do You?

I sure don’t like my photo taken and I’m a photographer!  I have a very down to earth personality.  I make our sessions fun, but with direction so that you get the most out of your session!

What a classic! Her face! Cracks me up! I always have to add at least one outtake!!! It makes it fun!

I am gearing up for Spring and all the lovely families that have scheduled with me!! I purchased some great props and can’t wait to utilize them!  I can’t wait to see what this new year brings for me and for this new business!!! I love South Jersey and working with people here and I hope that shows through these images!!!

We are also starting to see some blooming flowers here at the Studio!  I can’t wait to share it with all of you!  I love having a gorgeous private property as part of my accouterments of offerings!  Hope you enjoy these images and got to see what a typical session looks like!!!  And maybe got to know me a bit better? Trust me, you’ll have a great time and I will make you laugh!  I promise!!!

Happy Shooting, my friends!
