Time to book your senior sessions! | Stephanie Clement Photography | Andover MA

August 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Your senior's last year hasn't started yet, but for many living in the Andover area, those yearbook photos have to be submitted by the end of September.  Before they get too busy with school activities, now is the perfect time to get their session on the calendar!  Depending on what you and your senior are looking for, I have several options ranging from a shorter mini session (great for the boys!) to a full session which allows for additional time to incorporate an interest into some of the images (instrument, sport, etc) and/or an extra outfit.  Contact me if you're interested in learning more!

Holt Hill Family Session | Stephanie Clement Photography | Andover MA

June 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Can't beat a beautiful spring evening walking to the top of Holt Hill!  When this mom wanted to bring her family up there for their session, I knew that it would be a special one. Mom's goal was to have a portrait of each of her trio and then finish the session lifestyle fashion.  With 3 children under 6, it's all about playing so this worked out perfectly.

Once we got past the "are we there yet", "I'm thirsty" and "I need to go to the bathroom" stuff, we started with individual kid portraits on some rocks by the trees.  With little ones who love to run and play, giving them something to sit on or lean against helps to keep them focused for a few minutes.

After I knew we had the individual portraits that mom wanted, we moved out to the beautiful lush green fields at the top of the hill for some family photos.  We were all about the fun - we played some games, the kids and I had some special secrets we kept from mom and dad - making it fun keeps the kid engaged in what we're doing and allows us to capture some pure and natural family interactions.

Next we went back to photographing the kids together.  First we made some dandelion wishes and lastly played on the solstice stones.  They loved seeing the directions on the stones and telling time by standing on the top pillar.  You can see in the one image that we're all pointing North :).

How to use those images: Kitchen doorway | Stephanie Clement Photography | Andover MA

June 14, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

 

Last year I posted a fun way to get a lot of images up on the wall in a small space using 5x5 square prints.  Here's another little project I recently completed that I wanted to share.

We live in a national historic district house (aka lots of doorways from french doors, low light and wall space is sometimes at a premium).  This little space between the main doorway into the kitchen has been an unused space that I've had my eye on but it's not a lot of real estate.  

I recently thought it would be fun to showcase my 4 kids here - both my human kids and my "fur kids".  To give it some visual interest I used both horizontal and vertical images. I also wanted to give them a little "pop!" so I printed them on metal which gives a bit more contrast and color and with it being in the kitchen makes it very easy for cleaning/less places for dust etc to settle.  I also went wide - instead of a standard size I went wider to custom 8"x12" dimension which fit the space better and worked well with the images I chose.

All client sessions include an in person gallery review and ordering session.  In these sessions, we work together to design beautiful pieces and displays custom to your home.  I retain all client images indefinitely so I can also design displays using past images or infuse past with current images.  Contact me to learn more!

 


1st Birthday Balloon Session | Stephanie Clement Photography | Andover MA

May 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This little sweetie, Annabelle, had a Baby Plan which means she has a 3 session package for her first year of life and we timed it for 3 months, 8 months when she was sitting and then 1 year old.  For her 1st birthday, mom wanted to do something extra special but not have a cake smash.  After going through a few ideas, we decided on a Dr. Seuss/hot air balloon theme.  

We started out doing a few photos with big brother and her family to get into the groove and then brought out a pastel rainbow of balloons attached to a fun basket.  She had fun in the basket but enjoyed it even more when we turned it upside down :).

Then we moved to a blanket for a few portraits and some Dr. Seuss book time with big brother.  He's so amazing with her and she absolutely adores him.
