Wedding Wednesday

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday on the blog!  I’ll showcase ideas on anything that pertains to weddings on Wednesdays.

Brides-to-be, how did you ask your bridesmaids to stand by your side for your wedding day?  I found these special ways to ask them on Pinterest.  What do you think, too over the top or perfect?

Valentine Card Inspiration | Wichita Children’s Photographer

Yesterday I posted a few examples of my Valentine mini sessions on Facebook, and also included them in this post below.  I just couldn’t stop thinking about showing you some fun, unique Valentine cards that your kids could give to their friends and family.  The $275 mini session package includes either 2 digital image files or a $200 product credit – if you choose the 2 digital image file you will have the rights to print the images at anytime and in anyway you wish.  Or if you choose the product credit option we could print wallets or 4×6 prints with Valentine touches added to them (your child’s name, a fun saying, hearts, etc).  I have collected some ideas in my Valentines board on Pinterest for you to see.  If you don’t have a Pinterest account yet and would like one, give me your email address and I’ll send you an invite.

These images below are examples of this year’s Valetines setup – you have the option between the newspaper backdrop or a dark grey.  Both setups are great for boys or girls.  I do have a variety of tutus and some other props that can be used, or feel free to bring along your own.

Wedding Photography

After much consideration, I have decided to expand my business to include wedding photography services.  I will only be accepting a limited number of weddings each year, as I wish to provide the best possible service for my clients.  No worries portrait clients, I have a lot of great plans for you this year too!
