I met Miss F and her mom for a session outdoors for one of the nicest days before this heat hit us today. She was so adorable in her cute dress and her boots. She had lots of ideas and I could have photographed her much longer than we did. We hit some fields and some garden areas and she was not afraid to get into the thick of things. My kind of client!!!!! Enjoy!
Hi Everyone! I have been really busy with a few things going on with myself and the studio. First things first! My Easter minis! i will be photographing your little ones in the studio on March 25th and 26th for these minis. They are meant to showcase your little ones with their Easter finest so there will not be any ducklings or bunnies to date your portraits. If you want to being anything like that with you, then you are very welcome to do that. Here are the details!
*****And…..here is another big announcement…I will be taking appointments for the studio on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only. So, if you need to set up any appointments, please do so in advance so we can get you in! I will be leaving some spots open for the newborns that do not arrive for their parents as scheduled (as they are known to do). Spread the word if you know anyone that wants to come to the studio or if there is anyone that may not see this. This is NOT a prequel to closing the studio! I don’t think I could exist if I didn’t get to spend some time with all of the little ones that I have photographed and have yet to meet and photograph. I have joined back into the world of OSF as an RN Mission Partner. I am excited as this has began this past week and it is giving me a chance to learn new things and give back to the community. I thank all of you for supporting myself and my studio. I really appreciate it!! So, if you foresee an appointment in your future, please call soon!
I photographed these two when they were newborn and it was just as fun doing it again now that they have turned one. I opened the door and was thrilled to see these two beautiful babies! One is very smiley, one is kind of serious. They switched that up toward the end of the session. There was the typical sibling antics- don’t sit by me…what are you doing over there?…I want to play with that thing!…I really love being around you. So fun! Enjoy!
Mr. K was here and I actually got him to sit still for a few pictures with his mom! He is a really handsome guy and one can tell how much he is loved by her. At almost 2 years old, it is a challenge to get them to sit still in one spot, that is for sure. But when you can, they turn on the charm and give you those looks that say, “take this while you can get it cuz it won’t last long.” Haha! Enjoy!
I recently got together with a Child Life employee at St. Francis Medical Center Children’s Hospital to come up with something for the employees of OSF. Besides doing something for the employees on the children’s floors, I am going to be offering a 10% discount for any OSF employee on any portrait orders that they have from a session at Short Stories Photography by Julie this year. They do so much and give a lot of time, energy and heart to their jobs. This announcement will be in the employee newsletter or news that gives them information about all of the discounts that they get from local businesses. I am so proud to be one of them as I appreciate them and what they do at their jobs. <3
