.making choices.

as a photographer, you see things a little differently. the light isn’t just sunlight glaring in your eyes, it’s a golden glow that graces your face and gives you a delicate blush. the wind isn’t something that messes up your hair, it’s the gentle kiss on puts a touch of red on your nose and gives you that extra sparkle in your eye. the snow isn’t just white fluffy stuff, no – it’s so much more!

choosing a professional photographer isn’t just an option, it’s an investment and choice. you are choosing to have your portraits playfully created and beautifully captured. you are choosing to invest in memories you otherwise wouldn’t have created and may forget one day. it’s knowing that you have a portrait with those/the one you love – no matter what. and when you choose a professional photographer over a friend with a nice camera, you get so much more than just a picture. you get a portrait you can hold on to forever – and pass down to the next generation.

i decided to try something. the images below were taken of my son’s sock monkey (yes, a sock monkey) in the same location from different locations in my yard. being a professional photographer isn’t just about snapping pretty pictures – it’s about composition, angles, focus, and creative inspiration behind the scenes. the bottom three pictures are great snapshots, but not creatively inspired portraits. the top image is a portraits, capturing sock monkey’s better side, fixing his small blemish (a black thread on his chin), and proper lighting and exposure. all images were taken with the same camera and lens and in the same location.

now, allow me to introduce you to sock monkey and the difference between a snapshot and a portrait.

 

.bring on the cocoa.

it’s that time of year again. when we curl up on the sofa with a warm drink, a fuzzy blanket, and get lost in a good book. it’s also the perfect season for perfectly stunning portraits. snow is breathtaking. it adds a crystallized essence of pureness and joy, especially in a child’s gaze. it adds a whimsical touch to a couple’s engagement session. it’s also the perfect excuse for hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies. (can’t you smell them now?)

whether choosing an indoor lifestyle session of your family or an outdoor session of just the two of you, winter is the perfect time to schedule your session. especially if you have a christmas tree up.

.happy thanksgiving.

from our home to yours, have a happy and fulfilling thanksgiving.

may your day be full of family, hugs, love, good food, restful naptime for young and old, and football. (yes, i am a football fan.) but most importantly, may you create memories that will never fade!

 

happy thanksgiving!

.here we go a wassailing.

are you ready? many stores have already made the switch from fall to the holidays and christmas cheer already. many people reluctantly allow themselves to hum along with the carols wafting around them as the season ramps up to full speed on black friday. i, on the other hand, have been listening to christmas music for two weeks now. crazy, i know.

we all know the order of events. thanksgiving. making a striking plan. standing in line for hours upon hours. battling for that specific good. winning (hopefully). standing in line for hours upon hours. purchasing said good. checking out. (did your cashier just roll their eyes?) scurrying to the car. go to next shopping destination. start process over again. -sigh- it’s exhausting, isn’t it?

what if you could change the way you shop this holiday season? what if you could get a personable experience while shopping? what if the company you are purchasing from actually cared about you and your happiness?

i encourage you to shop small this year, to take the time to find those little boutiques and see what they have to offer. the quality, craftsmanship, and the customer service might leave you feeling a little bit warmer inside. after all, it’s not just the opening of the gift that leaves you feeling cheery – it’s the experience of everything wrapped into one.

so while you are shopping and trying to decide who has the better deal and who’s door you’ll be lining up in front of friday morning (or thursday night in some cases), don’t forget about the little guys. the small business that want your experience with them to be more than just a dash and pay. they want you as a lifelong customer, client, and friend. why? because they care. be sure to check out http://www.etsy.com for awesome small business shopping options, too.

so remember: shop small, not mall.

.christmas deadlines and holiday cheer.

with the holiday season fast approaching, shipping deadlines are also flying at us. custom framing deadline for guaranteed delivery before christmas is today (11/19) at noon. (payment must be sent via paypal for frame orders by noon. please email me for more information on the frames). canvas orders must be placed before november 28th. print orders must be placed by december 1st.

to place your order, please call heather at 317.440.0240 or email me at heather@castleintheairphotography.com with your session date and the images you would like to order.

now for the holiday cheer. did you know gift prints (8x10s and smaller) are buy one get one 50% off right now? you didn’t? well, now you do. happy holidays just a wee bit early from castle in the air photography.
