Changes are coming | Kennesaw GA Photographer

It has been a while since I posted. I admit I am a bit slack on my blog posts but I vow that I am going to get better! Some pretty awesome changes are going on behind the scenes here at Daisykey Photography :) First, I am working on a brand new blogsite. What in the world is a blogsite exactly? Well, basically it is a blog +  website in one. Having a website and a separate blog is a bit clunky and too time consuming for me and as a result, my blog doesn't get updated as much as it should and my website gets updated even less. Also, I currently have a flash website which means the most people cannot even find my website when they search for me! My blog is what google likes most so that is what gets bumped to the top of the search results so lightbulb moment! I need to combine the two so that I can keep my blog updated and so that YOU can find me! I will also be unveiling a new logo, yay! I had a logo made for me before but it just wasn't me so I found a different designer that I think will rock my socks with what I get :) Don't worry, I am setting everything up so that you will still have your private password protected galleries where you can order your images from your session. I think that you will enjoy these changes just as much, if not more than I do! So make sure you keep up to date with my new changes and when the changes will take place by liking my facebook page. In the meantime, I am still available for sessions :) You can contact ME to schedule your session today!

Beautiful baby girl | Kennesaw GA newborn hospital photographer

This session was supposed to be a birth session but someone(me) missed her arrival. Mama was scheduled to be induced but baby Kaylee had other plans! She came on her own and very quickly very early in the wee hours of the morning. I arrived a few hours later and documented a couple of her first hours. I had the pleasure of seeing her brothers meet her one by one. I loved seeing the love and excitement in their eyes, well in all but the littlest brother. He had other things on his mind than becoming a first time big brother and seeing his brand new baby sister. These are all captured with natural light which is a must for newborn hospital photography. I cannot wait to photograph this adorable family again in the future!

 Remember to contact me for more information about a birth, maternity, or newborn session. I would LOVE to be a part of your special memories!

Daisykey Photography | Kennesaw GA Natural Light Photographer

So, I just wanted to throw this out there...I LOVE natural light photos! They are warm and real. Just looking at them makes me feel as if I am standing right there. I love the results I get with my natural light photography. Now, being a natural light photographer does not mean that I throw you out into the harsh sun at high noon and snap away. That would make for all kinds of ugly shadows and I am pretty sure you don't want that. Shooting in natural light or available light just means that I know the best times of day to shoot to give you the beautiful shots you are after. Of course you need to know how to use your camera as well but I am only speaking of the light right now :)  I know where to sit you to get the best shots and the most flattering light. I practice these techniques, I crave this kind of photography. It is my craft and I absolutely LOVE what I do. So I will leave you with some of my natural light shots.

Remember all these were shot using natural light aka available light, no flash! It is possible to get beautiful natural light shots even indoors. It takes practice and you MUST learn how to use your camera in manual. If you don't, your camera will tell you "hey there isn't enough light, you gotta use the flash" when it simply is not true. If you have any questions about natural light or using your camera in manual, please shoot me an email at stephenie@daisykey.com

Daisykey Photography {What to Wear}

So, you booked your fall session with me but now you have no clue what to wear? Well, look below to get some ideas of what might work well for your session. You don't all have to wear the same clothes or event the same color clothes for your photos to look beautiful. A few tips are to wear colors that go together and use them on everyone. Don't wear clothes with logos! This is a big no no. Think about these photos hanging on the wall above your couch...you don't really want to see the GAP logo in all your shots, do you? Also, think about your location and make sure that your outfit "goes" with your location. If you are in a field, it is probably not the best match to wear heels and a mini skirt ;) Please remember that NOW is the time to book your holiday session! I only have limited dates and times available to book today by contacting me at stephenie@daisykey.com
