There's nothing like photographing kids...

After my most recent session of formal headshots I still had my gear set up and my 2 year old was running around wanting attention, I put him on the stool and thought ok, he's game lets take some nice pictures of him for the grandparents.

Well if you have kids you should know now that things never turn out like you expect them too.
My 2 year old was game alright but not in the way I thought. 1 image out of I don't know how many was a smile and fairly nice, the rest were faces as these below...

This inspired me to start a folder on my portfolio with just outtakes, with kids you get A LOT of them. Here's the link which will hopefully contain more in the future: http://www.pbase.com/timelessphotographywv/portfolio_outtakes

Professional Head Shots.

I had the opportunity to take some more headshots this month...
This woman was needing some more "formal" portraits for her professional website among other things. We tried several different shirts to come up with something she really liked. She preferred the more colorful shirts and ended up picking the first image below, which also happened to be my favorite.

New Year - New Site!

I finally got my new website launched:

I'm so excited about it, it features things I've been looking for, and which doesn't require a lot of time and effort to update which my previous sites have done.
One of the new features I hope my clients will like is their private log in pages.
After I'm done with a session I will email a link and password to my clients, where they will be able to log in and view their portraits in a private gallery, in the comfort of their own home. With it being password protected means that only THEY have access to those images - privacy is something most clients want and I can finally offer that with this website.

Something else I'm working on is setting up an option for clients to purchase prints online/pay with a credit or debit card. I'm hoping it will be up and running by the end of January.
I uploaded a gallery with price examples and whatelse I offer, as well as coupons for my clients as well: http://www.pbase.com/timelessphotographywv/customer_coupons

So come check it out!
