Little Miss A

Hello! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. I finally feel settled into our new home in Las Vegas and wanted to catch up on some photo shoots I didn’t blog before we left. I think 1 year portraits are perfectly darling. It’s a great milestone to capture while you can.

The chubby baby legs and wide-eyed wonder make just about everyone say “awwwww” at this age. Little A was a wonderful example of how to just step back and let the children explore their surroundings. She had some sniffles and stranger anxiety, but FLOWERS and BALLOONS so much more fun!

I was honored to be able to do this last session before I left LA, and it was really fun to try a new location.

 

  More about special products new to Vegas location coming soon. My absolute favorite are the albums we custom create, and I have several examples from the last few months to share in the next blog post. Here is the album created for the cutie above:

Also the Mini album is a fun pocket-sized brag book that is magnetic as well so it can hang on the fridge:)

Beautiful Family of 5

I had the opportunity recently to give back to one of my favorite communities; the San Fernando Valley’s (and possibly the WORLD’s) largest parents Meetup organization, Valley Moms. The group reached over 1000 members, and they decided to throw an amazing party complete with bouncy house, a bake-off, and a raffle. I was honored to participate in the raffle.  The winner of my raffle item received a free full length session and a 16×20 gallery wrap to hang on their wall. Even though we had a slightly sleepy younger child, and an active young toddler, we still had a great session in the valley at a local park. The oldest was sweet as can be and had a winning smile throughout the session.   They were wonderfully coordinated and a prime example of how to prepare a wardrobe for your session. A common color theme, with accent colors, solids and minimal patterns helped to unify the family without being too “matchy”.  Just a few of my favorite images from this session:

I Love Babies

Something about the little ones just keeps me coming back for more, time and time again. I love babies, from their fresh baby smell to their tiny little toes and chubby cheeks. If you are reading this post, you probably love babies, too! I had some really nice early afternoon light the other day and took a few candids of my own little one. I really love the outfit he is wearing, and his older brother wore this very same outfit in a couple candid shots I did around the same age. Enjoy!

-Stephanie

The first four are my younger son at 6 months:

 

These next five are my older son at four months:

Best of 2012 Contest- Win a 20×30 Canvas for your wall.

Hey there, I’d like to tell my amazing clients all about the contest I am having this month. No purchase necessary! Just vote for your favorite image.

 

Everyone who participated in a session in 2012 will be automatically entered with their best image at my discretion for the chance to receive a wonderful prize: A 20×30 Gallery wrap canvas - an $800 value 

 *image can be of a past session or used for future print credit.

The contest is simple. The images will be posted on the blog in a gallery. Each image will be numbered.

Underneath the gallery is a poll. Select your favorite image’s number and submit your vote. The image with the most votes wins!! You may only vote once. Be sure to share the contest with all of your family and friends. [The good news is, that you have an awesome chance at winning for the simple fact that I was pregnant all year and had a baby- which means I have fewer sessions to pick from.]

The contest is 1 week long beginning Monday, Feb 4th and ending Sunday, Feb 10th. So stay tuned:)

*Clients who did not sign a model release will be unable to participate for obvious reasons, I do apologize. There will be a random lottery for those clients and the winner will receive a 16×20 wall portrait.- I will privately contact the winner of that contest on Feb 15th.

If you just loved your experience with SJB studio, be sure to tell people, and receive a special gift when they book and complete a session with me.  call 818-916-3274 or email stephanie@sjbstudio.com to book now.

If you want to be a VIP member and receive exclusive discounts and get first dibs on all mini sessions, send an email to stephanie@sjbstudio.com with “VIP” in the subject line and I will add you to my VIP mailing list for special products, blog posts, and promotions for future sessions with SJB Studio.
