What to Buy a Photographer…

 

Photography Gifts

christmas photography gifts This time of year, I get asked a lot about photography gift ideas. I love helping people find that perfect gift.  So I’m here to help if you have someone that enjoys photography in your life.

Let’s start with the basic thing you need most in photography, the camera. 🙂

I shoot with Canon so that’s what I went with when compiling this gift list. To answer another question, is Canon or Nikon better? They are both great, pick what is easiest for you to learn on.

Canon Rebel T6 – This is a great camera to learn and start out with. It is a great gift option for someone that would like to learn photography and get familiar with a DSLR camera.

Canon 6D – This is the next step up from the Rebel T6. This is a great gift idea for the photography enthusiast in your life that is ready to take their learning to the next level.

Canon 50mm 1.8 – Most of the lenses that come with a camera bundle are zoom lenses. This lens is not a zoom lens and this lens is a great one to learn and understand how lenses work with a camera. This is the most affordable version of this lens

SD Memory Card – If you have a photographer in your life, they can never have enough memory cards.

Instax Mini 26 – This is a fun and favorite photography item of mine. I have one that I love taking on trips and vacations. It provides an instant print that you can hang on your refrigerator, wall or place in an album. This item is also super popular with teens and younger children. There are no settings to change around. Just turn it on and start shooting. Make sure you get them batteries and film for this camera.

Floral Camera Strap – We all like to personalize items in our life. That same idea works with photography as well. A camera strap is a great way to do that. This floral strap is adorable and adds a pop of color and personality to your camera. Etsy has a ton of cute camera straps options.

Touch Screen Gloves – I use my phone for several different things during a photo session. During these cold days, a pair of gloves that also lets me operate my phone is a big win!

Day Planner – Let’s be honest, everyone can use a day planner. Even with technology and being able to put my calendar in to a phone or computer, I still like and use a day planner.

Olloclip – This is a great gift idea for someone that loves photography, but loves using their phone versus a DSLR camera. This clip on can turn your iPhone lens in to a wide angle lens, fish eye lens and a micro lens.

Instax Mini Film Album – An album is a perfect accessory gift for the Instax Mini camera. A regular size photo album or scrapbook is also great to allow them to display the images they have taken and printed.

If you still are not sure what your photography person would like, gift cards are great! Gift cards to Amazon, Best Buy or your local camera store allow them to pick out gear and accessories for themselves. Or you can always get them a gift certificate for a photography class with me! 🙂

What is custom newborn photography? Custom newborn photography is my specialty. Every session looks different because I work with each client to use colors and props that they like or that will coordinate with colors in their homes. That means we think long term. How will these prints look hanging in your home?

Olivia was so precious for her newborn session in the studio. It’s amazing how much she all ready looks like her dad. She even flashed me the biggest smile. That always warms my heart.

Message me today for your own custom newborn session.

Anna Lauryn :: {Meridian, MS Newborn Photographer}

As a Meridian newborn photographer, sometimes I think I have the best job in the world. I get to spend time snuggling and soothing sweet babies, and this sweet girl was no exception. She was the perfect sleepy baby for her newborn mini session. Again, these babies are giving me all the hair envy. 🙂 This precious girl and her mom came to visit me one morning in the studio and I am so glad they did. Anna Lauryn’s mom brought in a floral wrap that was so gorgeous. Floral is super popular right now!

I have three different newborn session options. I would love for you to message me today to schedule a session for your adorable newborn.

Williams Family :: {Family Photographer}

Family Photographer :: {Hickory, MS}

Hello friends and happy fall! The weather in Mississippi is always predictable. We never have true winter weather until December. So it’s no surprise that fall images around here can still take place in short sleeve shirts and have summer flowers still blooming in the background.

I love how well all of their outfits match and coordinate! Great job, mom for pulling this together.

Enjoy my favorites from this sunset, rustic family session. This dad is outnumbered by his girls, but I don’t think he minds.

I am currently booking for the Spring of 2018. So do not hesitate to contact me today to set up your session.

Rigby Kate :: {Studio Newborn Session}

This studio newborn session gave me all the hair envy. I mean, look at this hair! 🙂 Sigh…

The week prior to this session, I spent an amazing day capturing her birth. She is the caboose for her family and was welcomed by two big brothers. This family is full of love and it shows in their actions to each other and shines through their images as well.  Also, their outfits coordinated perfectly, which put me in photographer heaven.

I would love to see your newborn in the studio. I’m currently booking February 2018 so message me today to get on the upcoming years schedule.

Lexie :: {Newton County Senior Photographer}

Lexie :: {Newton County Senior Session}

For this Newton County Senior Session, we worked together to incorporate some of Lexie’s achievements and hobbies. Lexie is incredibly photogenic so she made my job so easy.

Lexie has so many awards from showing livestock over the years, it was only fitting that we brought those in. And pay a visit to some real livestock. 🙂

I love how Lexie brought in a variety of clothing and accessories. We were able to change out and get so many different variations. Some of my favorite local shopping boutiques are Brae Brae’s, The Bluebird Boutique and I Just Got to Have It. What are yours?

Message me today to set up your own custom senior session.

Hannah :: {Raleigh, MS Senior Photographer}

Let’s talk about this Raleigh senior session featuring this brown-eyed beauty. We had so much fun doing hair and makeup in the studio for this girl. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

I love that she brought her cool Mustang in for a few pictures! 🙂 Hannah has an amazing gift for working with animals. She has a tender heart for animals. Her and her mom rescue and re-home so many dogs. I can see Vet school in her future for sure.

Hannah was my first senior to come in from Raleigh High School and I look forward to seeing many more in the coming years.

Message me today to learn more about how to book your senior session.

Matthew :: {Leake Academy Senior Photographer)

As a Leake Academy Senior Photographer, I love all the details that went in to this session.  Small details like a class ring. And more obvious details like incorporating favorite sports or hobbies.

It must have been over 90 degrees on this day typical, summer Mississippi day with high humidity. Matthew was such a pro, you would never guess the weather conditions by looking at his images. 🙂

There are 3 different senior session options to choose from and senior sessions can take place anytime during your junior or senior year. Message me today to set up your senior session.

Lily :: {Newton, MS Newborn Photography}

Lily is an absolute doll. And when your birthday falls so close to Independence Day, it makes total sense to add in some american colors.

She was the perfect sleepy baby for her session. She even threw me a big smile at the end. Smiling babies are my favorite! Enjoy my favorites from Lily’s newborn mini session!

I offer 3 different session options for sweet newborns. I would love for you to contact me today to schedule your session. Newborn photography sessions take place within the first 10 days of your new bundle of joy being born. It is never too early to get your appointment on the books.

Taylor :: {Newton, MS Headshot Photographer}

Taylor :: {Newton, MS Headshot Photographer}

You may be asking yourself why would you need a headshot photographer? Or even what are headshot portraits?

A headshot session is where we put the focus of the images on clearly showing the face.

There are many reasons why you would need updated headshots. When you are trying to make a great first impression, a professional headshot is a perfect way to do just that. Whether you are using it for business purposes, college applications, or social media platforms, professional headshots help you stand out from everyone else!

If you’d like more information about having headshots made for you, message me today!
