Salt Academy – Theater Portraits

Prepare yourself for a portrait overload…but I cannot help myself, I just love these theater portraits from Salt Academy‘s recent musical production called Calliope.  I really wish I could say that you should catch the next performance, but sadly, it is over.  So for now, these portraits will have to suffice.  With a cast of over 50, I really controlled myself by only showing these images…there were so many fabulous costumes and characters.  Salt Academy really went all out for this one…and I am already looking forward to their next big show!

This is by far my favorite portrait.  These three were the main characters for the circus…The Storyteller, The Ringmaster, and The Musician.

They were a fabulous trio and their costuming was spot on.

These two played their roles perfectly!

One of the many, menacing little clowns…

The little mime above, and The Storyteller with the lead Althea…the most moving part of the musical.  Every time I watched the scene with their story, I cried.  Everytime…

It would be difficult to pick a favorite dance…there were so many and they each had such emotion and power!  But this one was just fabulous!  I loved these odd striped suits with their faces set without emotion.  Beautiful moves and just so unique!

Awww…the whole happy family!

The amazing Orpheus, The Ringmaster…this role was perfect for him!  He played it so well.

This gal in her AMAZING make up and fabulous dance.  I love this costume!

Our comic relief…these two made us all giggle!

Meet Linus the Musician and Linus the dog…dang, you really needed to be there.

  

The fabulous family of mimes…

Wow…what an incredible production.  The people who created this and brought it to life are amazing.  The kids who played these roles were just fabulous.  It was an honor and a pleasure to photograph the portraits for this troupe!

I love these two photos of all the kiddos together.  It isn’t easy to wrangle 4 at these ages…kudos to John and Carrie who do it every day.

Newborn Photography –

Many times people will ask if they need to bring their own props and clothing, and while I encourage my clients to bring anything they would like to a maternity or a newborn photography appointment, I have many many things in the studio for my clients to use as well.  Dresses and wraps for mom, lots and lots of props for babies, and cute little things like this blue little outfit for newborns.

Ack!  Eyes are so difficult to control in the beginning!  Don’t worry Jacob, you are adorable no matter what.

This is one of my new props, and it is quite unique.  It is real bark, from a real tree.  I found it and decided it would make a fabulous prop.  Dried it out, made some repairs, made sure it would be safe and comfortable…and voila!  Add cute baby and you are good to go!

I love this sweet little stretch!  Look at that face…so many times I get the babies into position and then they take over and so something cuter than I could have planned.

Kacie…pregnancy is beautiful

Pregnancy IS beautiful and if you are pregnant you should consider having artistic maternity portraits created.  Why?  Maternity portraits capture your changing, growing and radiant body!  Celebrate the life growing inside of you and capture moments that you can share with that little miracle when they get older.  My favorite photo of my mom is a picture of her 9 months pregnant with me!  This is a moment of your life that you will never have again.  You might have other pregnancies, but not this exact one ever again.  And if I had a dollar for every time I heard… “Oh I wish I would have had maternity portraits done” or “I wish I would have known that maternity photography was a thing when I was pregnant.” or “I didn’t have any pictures taken when I was pregnant because I felt huge, and now I regret it.” …well, let’s just say I’d be a rich woman.

This gorgeous mama-to-be actually stopped me in my tracks.  I had been running a model call for maternity when I saw her at the BabyExpo and I literally called out to her across the aisle.  Can’t you see why?!  My goodness, she’s beautiful.  She was reluctant too…like so many moms I meet!  But we had such a fun portrait session in the studio and she loves her portraits!

Don’t let your doubts stop you.  I have over 14 years of experience in accentuating the BEAUTY of the pregnant body.  Give me your trust for an hour or so…together, we can make you into a piece of art!

Jude and Jamie – See them Grow!

Settle in folks, I have had the joy of taking family portraits for this wonderful family for years.  It’s time for a “See Them Grow” post!  This is so fun…and thanks to my new filing system, so much easier.  (Did you know that I don’t delete images?  It’s true…how could I!?)  First, check out this progression of sibling portraits over the years.

Family Portraits

This family has been coming to see me since the beginning of their family…with their very first “bump”.

And Mr. Jude as a newborn.  He was such a tiny baby!

Newborn Portraits

 Jude and his mama waiting for baby sister.  I love that they decide to book a maternity session for their second baby.  I think many families overlook maternity portraits for second or third babies.  “I have photos of me pregnant” I have heard some people say.  But every pregnancy is different and wonderfully special.  Plus, maternity photos with older siblings are precious!

The whole family!  I love family photos with newborns.  And precious little Jamie with her little finger!

Another adorable session with these two as they grow.

Oh how I miss my old brick wall…so glad we captured these moment in that beautiful place.  I love the portrait of the two of them standing and looking at my like that.  Cracks me up!

And here we are to the most current session.  Look at how they have grown!

Children's Portraits

Jamie and his trains!  If you look back through their photos, you’ll see this is a common thread.

I love this little scrunched up grin.  She’s such a precious and fun girl.

Thank you Glen and Kristen for choosing Barefoot Photography again and again for your family portraits because it has been a fun ride!  Give me a call or send me an email if you want to begin to capture your family in portraits.

Boaz, Amaryah and Shilo with big sister Lael

Prepare yourself for sweetness overload from these newborn triplet portraits!  I recently had put out the word that I was looking for newborn triplet models.  Now while these little ones are quite as young as I was looking for, I am so glad that their (AMAZING) mama Hope and I gave it a try anyway.  They were fabulous little models!  They gave me smiles and eye contact while they were awake, and then…they all fell asleep…AT THE SAME TIME.  I worked quickly and we got the cutest portraits!  Just precious!   And big sister was such a sweetheart, so helpful and loving.  She loves to hug her babies!

I mean, look at them!  Those eyes, those smiles…they are such sweet little bundles!

Seriously!?  Does this woman look like she carried triplets?!  She’s incredible, and not just because she looks like someone else carried those babies.  She is on…all the time.  Three babies at once…with a two year old.  I don’t know how she does it and still looks so fabulous, so calm and so loving.  Beautiful motherhood!

Newborn Triplet Portraits

Typically, I recommend bringing newborns into the studio for their portraits around 7-10 days.  Now with multiples, that isn’t always possible because they often need extended care in the nicu.  Does that mean you have missed your window to have newborn portraits done?  Absolutely not!  While the session might take a little longer, or maybe they won’t be quite as squishy, as you can see, we can still capture beautiful portraits even if your babies are older.  Contact Kimberly today to discuss your portrait needs.

I love how Shilo decided to have a peek around here…just keeping tabs on that photographer while her siblings rest.

I had decided that I wanted to unwrap them for a few more shots, one by one they woke up and looked at me like I was nuts for interrupting their naptime.  But what a sweet portrait of them all bundled up together!
