Baby Paityn

I had the pleasure of meeting this tiny baby girl when she was just 10 days old. Her grandmother and mother arrived a little early at the photoshoot with this wide-eyed little girl and we spent some time snuggling and doting over Paityn.

I met them in Milton, Ky., near Madison, Indiana, where I do most of my indoor infant shoots. I was finally able to try out some of the headbands that I made a while back and my pink tutu on a newborn!

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. For all of my favorites, visit the Imagine Photography page at www.facebook.com/ahornphotography

Thanks, and enjoy!

A big thanks to my friend, Robin Hampton, who made this adorable hat!

put a ring on it

I love the bling. I’ll admit it. And I love finding new ways to shoot it! Here are some of my favorite ring shots over the past few years!

kissing is fun

One of my favorite awkward moments in photographing couples is getting the kissing photos. Now, this isn’t awkward for me, I love it! The couples, however, have a more difficult time adjusting.

I’m lucky to have such great, in love, clients. After a few initial giggles and nose bumps, the kisses get longer and sweeter.

Hats off to my kissing couples!

don’t rush a good photo

Many times clients begin their search for finding a photographer with great intentions. They look for someone who can match their own style and needs. Then, somehow a great shift happens. The focus changes from finding a perfect match of style to finding a perfect match for the wallet instead. Many photographers, I also do this, charge by an hourly rate. Clients often ask me if I’ll cut my rates in half for a 30-minute session rather than an hour. Depending on the shoot and customers needs, I’ll accommodate.

The purpose of this entry is to warn: Allow time to shoot.

Not only will the photographer feel rushed, but you, as a subject, will also. There is a big difference in a subject from the first frame to the last. I recently photographed a good friend of mine, Laura, who generally doesn’t like her picture taken. She was amazing. In freezing temperatures, we trotted throughout downtown Madison, Indiana to capture a few poses. I’ll post some more from her shoot later, but here is the difference between a first shot and one 30 minutes into the shoot.

In the first photos, a subject wants to recognize the camera exists and do what comes naturally, smile. But if you’re looking for a more photojournalistic style of photography, allow yourself time to adapt to being photographed. The end result is more natural, un-staged photographs.

i love outdoor photography!

When shooting, sometimes the landscape speaks as much as the subject. In Madison, Indiana I love doing wedding photography or engagement photos at the Lanier Home or throughout downtown. I also visited Ault Park in Cincinnati, Ohio last summer and LOVED it. I can’t wait to shoot in Cincinnati again so I can revisit that park. Here’s a compilation of some great place I’ve shot.
