Prom Portraits – March 27th from 3:00 – 5:00

There’s nothing quite like beautiful portraits to really turn a house into a home. From family images to photos from your favorite vacations, printing out your best memories turns your home into an extra special place.

Deciding which images to print for your home and where to place them can be quite a process though, especially when you have many to choose from and you’re not an interior designer or a photographer. Here are a few tips to help make choosing photos for your home much more enjoyable and a whole lot less complicated.

  • Consider your dĂ©cor.Whether you’re deciding which pictures to print or even where to hang them, take your dĂ©cor into consideration. A good tip is to look for images that contain colors that match the dĂ©cor in specific areas of your house. 
  • Get organized. Use folders to help you with the selection process. Place your favorite images into specific folders that are categorized according to prominent colors in the images, particular themes, or even various sections of your home. Place your favorite images into each folder. 
  • Size and location matter. If you’re going to be placing your prints in an area where they will be visible from the opposite side of the room, opt for bigger prints to help them stand out.
  • Plan before you hang.  Before you start knocking nails into your walls, cut out exact replicas of the frames you’re planning to hang or arrange your printed photos on a wall to see what the display will look like before you make the commitment.

If you still feel like you need some help with choosing portraits from a specific shoot to print for your home, be sure to reach out. We’d love to help!

Nelms-Taymon Family | Richmond Hill Family Photographer

Introducing the Nelms-Taymon family!

This gorgeous fam chose J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill for the location of their portrait session. We are so blessed to live in coastal Georgia where there are so many beautiful places to enjoy. Unsure where you’d like to have your family session done? Our boutique studio is always an option, but if on-location is more your style we have several places to select from including Ft. McAllister, J.F. Gregory Park, Tivoli Marsh, downtown Savannah, Red Gate Farms, and Tybee, to name a few.

The children look gorgeous amid all of the lush natural beauty that is south coastal Georgia. We are blessed to have such amazing landscapes at our fingertips. The setting here is great for capturing beautiful photos and just enjoying day to day. J.F. Gregory is definitely a favorite go-to!

Don’t the kids look great in red, white, and blues? While selecting your wardrobe, always keep in mind what colors/hues will go best with your home color scheme. You may also want to consider including items that hold personal meaning to you such as a family heirloom or your child’s favorite toy or blanket. These will make your portraits more meaningful.

Believe!!! Mom wanted to incorporate a little Christmas magic in their session, plus capture the children before they are all grown up. Family portraits are a perfect way of doing this and allow you to preserve a moment in time for many years. It’s a good idea because childhood goes by much too quickly, doesn’t it?

Love this “hug” pose as it usually elicits lots of laughter! Such a beautiful family! You can tell they love being together.

Such a beautiful backdrop for a beautiful family. Richmond Hill and Savannah offer so much in a way of visual opportunities. It is its own canvas, really. Thank you to this lovely family for trusting us with your memories!

Schwoob Family | Richmond Hill Family Photographer

Introducing the Schwoob family! Meghan is a busy mom of two adorable kids ages five and seven. Phil is a pilot for the Army. Fun fact … we discovered early on that Phil and my brother (who is retired Army), know each other well and served together! Such a small world.

This gorgeous family is originally from Colorado.

For now it’s time for an amazing portrait session beginning in Forsyth Park! Meghan opted for a sunrise session and I’m so glad she did. Although it requires an early wakeup, the light is gorgeous at this hour, plus the city was peacefully quiet.

This family portrait was one of Meghan and Phil’s favorites. It is now framed and hanging up in their new home!

Look at those smiles! We are so blessed to live in coastal Georgia where there are so many beautiful places to enjoy. Unsure where you’d like to have your family session done? Our boutique studio is always an option, but if on-location is more your style we have several places to select from including Ft. McAllister, J.F. Gregory Park, Tivoli Marsh, downtown Savannah, Red Gate Farms, and Tybee, to name a few.

What a fun shot! And look at that luscious green background! The setting at Forsyth is great for capturing beautiful images.

How cute are they! Little brothers are silly for sure.

Mom knocked their clothing choices out of the park! While selecting your wardrobe, always keep in mind what colors/hues will work best with your color scheme, as our final outcome is always at least one gorgeous piece of wall art to display in your home. You may also want to consider including items that hold personal meaning to you such as a family heirloom or your child’s favorite toy or blanket. These will make your portraits more meaningful.

Gah, they are such a sweet couple! Meghan and Phil wanted to be sure to capture their children at these ages, but also preserve their time here in Savannah. Family portraits are a perfect way of doing this! It’s a good idea because childhood (and time to PCS again) goes by much too quickly.

I love the hug pose as it elicits a ton of laughter. No props needed here! Savannah offers so much in a way of visual opportunities. It is its own canvas, really. However, props are always welcome in our portrait sessions. They may be something from our studio, from nature, or a special item from home. For children’s portraits, you might want to include a favorite toy, book, blanket, or family heirloom.

Just gorgeous!

How appropriate to have this amazing military family posed with our nations emblem in the background. The red, white, and blue of those flags add color and beauty to this already stunning portrait.

It was such a pleasure photographing the Schwoob family! Capturing images families will cherish for a lifetime is one of the best parts of being a photographer. We hope they enjoy these special memories for many years to come. Thanks Schwoob fam!

Little Miss Z. | Richmond Hill Children’s Photographer

Happy 1st birthday sweet and adorable Miss Z!!! How cute does she look in her little leopard print outfit!? Eeek!

Babies love the toys and props we use here in our studio. We have a wide variety to choose from, but we also recommend bringing a favorite toy from home, such as a book or a blanket they love. These items often make your images even more fun and meaningful.

This cute little girl is just crazy about dogs! Baby Z. lit up when she saw one of our doggie client’s portraits set up on a table, so of course we had to let her play with it! She kept pointing at the image saying, “Doggie!” and would break out in a huge grin.

As moms, we know childhood goes by way too quickly. Most especially that first year filled with such huge milestones. Our Grow With Me plan is an easy, stress-free, and popular way for you to create (and document) memories and milestones of your little one during their first year. If you’d like more information, please contact us!

Those big blue eyes!

Work it Baby Z!!! She really hammed it up for the camera!

Outfit and scene change! Baby Z. was ALL about her cake! A yummy and delicious smash cake is provided for all of our Birthday Bash sessions. Leslie Ates from Ates’ Bakes and Cakes is our local and talented baker. We highly recommend her!

Struggling to decide what you’d like your baby to wear for his or her session? We have a selection of adorable outfits for littles ones! Just ask!

Life is a party!!!

We about died laughing when Baby Z. decided to just dive right in! These moments are simply the best.

Baby Z…you are just so precious and we loved our time with you! This beautiful little dog lover had a great time, too. It’s always a joy helping families celebrate first birthdays! We hope Baby Z. and her whole family enjoys these portraits for many years to come.
