luke // newborn session // sneak peek // bright indiana newborn photographer

I am very excited to welcome baby Luke into my Baby Collection program. I met this adorable little family outside of Lawrenceburg Indiana for this in-home newborn session.

Mom and Dad kept his gender under wraps until his early debut in March… (wha??) and they pulled it off seamlessly (go you two!)

It was so great to meet up with this family and meet big brother Kyle and work with adorable baby Luke. A big congratulations to this family on a healthy, sweet baby boy.

Here are a few peeks into what I’m looking at tonight on my computer! Love, love love those little lips!

For more information on the Baby Collection, shoot me over an email at amyjohorn@gmail.com and let’s chat! : )

As a photographer, I love nothing more than to walk into a home and see family photos on display. Even more of a compliment is when I see pictures I’ve taken turned into art on their walls. Many times, it’s difficult to think of where to start with turning a blank wall into a showcase of your family.

Each week I’ll be posting a few images I’ve found on the world wide web here for you to gain inspiration from. Click the image to trace to the root image of the photo, as these are not my images.

Happy Monday for all of you readers. Hope these images help inspire you to create and display beautiful works of photography!

This would be excellent to display a first year overview from the Baby Collection program or even your favorites from one session:

what a great way to incorporate pictures from the newborn session into the nursery. I really love the one large image with supporting smaller ones around it.

I had this little girl in Madison, Indiana for her newborn photography session at just five days new. She was so tiny and sleepy that I was able to get a few really neat composite shots too. 🙂

Here’s the first composite image I did while she was awake. I combined two images to create this one. I had her dad holding on to her in two different areas and used a tripod to keep my camera in the same location. With dad holding her the entire time, little Allison was never in any danger.

This was a really fun composite image. This final image consists of four images. One of just the guitar and three of Allison being held on the guitar by her dad and grandma. Dad is a musician, so this end product ended up being pretty special to him.

Mommy and Daddy are also black belt martial artists, by the way.

Baby Devon

I traveled down from my home, near Lawrenceburg, Indiana to meet with Crystal, Zach and little baby Devon near Madison, Indiana for our baby and family portrait session.

Sweet baby Devon was such a wonderful little model. With a little grin showing through from his dreams, he was my personal photographer’s dream! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from the session as much as I do.

I can’t wait to see Devon for his six months photos this fall.

Baby McKenna – 3 months

I wanted to post some of my favorites from my session with little McKenna and her parents in Milton, Ky. I have the pleasure of working with McKenna for the next nine months as I document all of her milestones! Jenna and Jessie decided to book me for a Milestone Package and if you’re not familiar with it, keep reading! 🙂

I just started offering these packages this spring and boy are they a hit! With the packages, parents are able schedule either two or four sessions within the first 14 months of the baby’s life. Popular times to schedule are newborn (within the first two weeks after birth), three, six or nine months and one year.

When the baby is a newborn, its so great to capture what it was like when they first come into the world. Fun hats, unique props and photos that really capture the baby’s features are the reason many parents choose this session. At three months, it’s all about the little features: learning to smile, tiny hands and feet and snuggling with mommy and daddy. Then when the baby is a self-sitter, we schedule the six month session. These are so fun! These are great for being able to capture the baby’s personality as it’s forming. Fun outfits, props and backgrounds make the six months session unique. Then, when the baby is crawling (generally around nine months) we schedule the mover session. I say this, because the baby is always on the move! Then, to round out the baby’s first year, we schedule the one year session when he/she is walking. These can be a lifestyle portrait session or a fun cake-eating time!

Each of these sessions comes with several poses and a family pose as well as the edited high-resolution images on a disc. I currently offer individual sessions and now full and half Milestone packages. Please email me at amyjohorn@gmail.com for rates and scheduling. June is booking fast so don’t delay!

Complete one of these packages by scheduling a maternity session, then at the end of the first year, we can work together to create an album that your family can cherish for years.

I just love these photos of little McKenna (and her big blue eyes)! Enjoy 🙂

I love the way that Jessie is looking at Jenna, and she at McKenna. One of my favorites!

Love these blues!

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.
