A couple of weeks ago, I met up with the fabulous bloggers behind Out and About Mom and their families for a fun photo session to update their photos and polish their look for their blog site. Out and About Mom is a blog that tracks all of the day trips and activities that two Connecticut moms do with their young children. These ladies have visited an astounding number of places and have noted not only what the experience was like, but also great little details like whether or not you can take in strollers and other helpful facts. When I first saw their blog, I thought it was an absolutely genius idea and only wish that I had such an awesome resource to refer to when my daughter was so little. Shawna and Mandy are from the Glastonbury/West Hartford area, but have not limited themselves to just these two towns. They are an adventurous duo who have traveled to numerous towns throughout the state in their mission to create great memories with their little ones. Luckily for all of us, they generously share all their experience and wisdom regularly through their blog.
When we met up in Farmington for our session, we quickly plotted out our hour of shooting time and got to work with individual portraits, group shots, family photos, and even some maternity shots as well! It was like we did 4 sessions in one that day! But it was tons of fun and I am so excited about the results of this session. Thanks again to Shawna and Mandy for trusting my vision for their photos and being willing to track down color coordinating outfits for so many family members and themselves as well. No small task, I promise you!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session:
The next two shots show a really cute and creative idea that the OAAM bloggers came up with. They posed in a dozen different ways with blank white poster board and they plan to use these on their blog as a fun way to post little ideas, announcements, etc. With a little Photoshop text tool, you can write whatever you want on the posters. Here is a little sample that I came up with to demonstrate how the photos will work on their blog, but with a little self promotion for Kathryn Deane Photography mixed in for fun :-)
The following photo may be a Kathryn Deane Photography first because I have actually come out from behind my camera to pose for a shot with Shawna and Mandy. I am so excited to be building this great partnership with these two fantastic women and I look forward to working with them again in the near future:-)
