I've been meaning to write this post for a while now, but obviously I haven't been super active on my blog lately. I thought I was busy before, but now that I'm back to work full time I realize that I didn't know what busy was. Finding the time to do, well anything, is proving to be quite a challenge. We are slowly getting our feet under us, but it is definitely a work in progress. Anyway, back to this post.
I don't know about you, but I love taking pictures of my kids. Of course I think they are the cutest children in the world and they change so fast that I want to capture their sweet little faces as often as I can. As great as the photos I get are, there is no substitution for professional photos. A professional photographer is exactly that, a professional, and the photos show it.
I was lucky enough to meet Kristine Andrews about a year ago and she has helped us get some amazing photos of our boys. Kristine did Luke's first birthday photos. He did not like frosting!
She did an adorable Valentine's Day mini session with both boys. Love!!
Then over the summer we finally got around to doing family photos.
Kristine has an incredible knack for capturing all of the aspects of my boys' personalities, and there are many.
I mean, look at those faces! Honestly it was hard for me to pick which shots to include because I just love them all! My favorite shot from the whole day is this one where you can just see how much we love each other.
Professional photos can get really pricey which is why a lot of people don't do them, but Kristine is super affordable. I also love that she includes digital images in her packages because in this day and age, let's be honest, that's what I want. Of course I want to frame prints and hang them up, but I also want to be able to put them in a digital frame, share them on Facebook, and use my amazing professional photos in the grandchildren calendars I make as holiday gifts for our parents every year. Owning the digital images allows me to do all that and more.
Another cool thing that Kristine does is when you get your digital images, she gives you more than one edit of each of them. She gives you a black and white, as well as several slightly different color versions where the colors/light have been adjusted. I actually don't know what the real terms are for that, I'm not a professional photographer. I just know that I like having the options.
If you are thinking about having some photos taken, I highly recommend Kristine Andrews Photography. We have so many amazing photos of our beautiful boys, and our little family, thanks to her.
I received a free photo shoot and digital images but all opinions are my own.
