Tips for DIY photos of your family for christmas!

Allisonannestudios ends up on Fox and friends how did this happen? Well,  because I did a spot last year I am now in their data base and I along with Twisted Oaks get the call now every so often (insert heart eyes emoji)  Lee one of the producers from Fox and Friends emailed me Monday to be on the show, ON TUESDAY MORNING, well life kinda stopped! And even though I had a serious day ahead of me I knew I had to go! How can I not share my tips of photographing your children with the world all while having Julia as my subject! I called my very good friend Jackie, owner of Annata Wine Bar here in Downtown Hammonton to see if she could bring her two littles, Colella and Lily! I have photographed those girls a ton so I knew they were the right fit! So elite limo picked us up at 4am yes 4AM!  Allisonannestudios was off to Fox and Friends!  The girls were giddy the whole 2 hour ride and I apologized to the driver several times for the constant chattering of 3 little mouths so early in the morning lol.  Sandi from Twisted Oaks Studio met us there with her son Luke! As soon as we got there we headed right into make up and hair.  Julia made herself right at home immediately.  I am so thankful for Jackie snapping away as I concentrated on not only getting my set straight but getting Julia calm and ready for the spot!

These girls had a blast!

So the spot on Fox and Friends never went as planned (as television usually doesn’t) but I went with another secret mission.  PLANNERS! If anyone is following my second business venture it is weareladypreneur  so I brought several planners to hand out and when I literally delivered one to ainsley earhardt our host, and she tweeted it,  I about died!!

She was sweet as pie and I just loved her!

 So when we got back to the green room we felt there was reason to celebrate and I am so glad I came prepared with my clicquot 🙂 we toasted all things awesome!

You just never know where life will take you!

Until next time New York City and Fox and Friends!!! You have my heart <3

It wouldn’t be a year without Mother’ Day Mommy & Me’s! Each year, moms of all types gather with their little loves for some time in front of my lens. The results are always heartwarming. This time around (I think my 5th year!), I needed to use my ‘new’ old truck as the background. And of course an apple orchard and a trusty antique quilt. Add some yellow forsythias for some warm contrast and BOOM. Happy mammas everywhere. I love delivering these galleries. The moments are genuine and I am so happy year after year to capture them for these families.

Meet the O’Donnells. A truly wonderful family whose mommy just happens to be one of my closest friends! When Lori asked for a lifestyle session I was giddy with excitement. I knew their home was not only filled with praiseworthy family antiques, but also lovely, very photographable, little children 🙂 So off to Atco I went, felling like I was going for a coffee and a visit, but quickly remembering how lucky I was that this is actually my job! The session started with the freshest member of the family, Finn, who is not even sitting up quite yet! So to capture his cuteness we used a Boppy to prop him up, and draped a flokati over it- because you know I feel about flokatis with babies on them lol. And the sibling pics, goodness they are adorable. Big sis Claire just adores her new little bro. I see great moments ahead with these two- filled with lots of mischief and giggles. A great big thanks to this family for allowing me in their life not only as a friend for all these years, but also as a professional. It means so much when a friend believes in your work.

What you are seeing right now is one of my proudest sessions of 2018. This is Easton, and he is one. This is the climatic end to Easton’s First Year Journey experience. This past fall I did his sitter session when this guy was just a little baby.  But we blinked and now he is over one! Mom wanted a field of yellow flowers and I was able to grant her wish!  This field is a private lot, the owner lives right next to it, and he lets me use it- exclusively. He has been known to chase photographers out of this field, but for some blessed reason, he likes me- and only me! I can’t lie- I do love that.

This place is magical and filled with purple and yellow flowers- yellow my favorite color. The color of the Summer, and the sun, and happiness and all that is bright. Yellow is the color that pulls me from the Winter blues and grays into the warmth of hope and love. Surrounding Easton in this color and meaning just made me smile for days. Look at his shirt! I want one! He wandered the field exploring. Smelling each flower, picking them, offering them to me and mom. It was marvelous. I am so proud of this work and I hope you enjoy looking at the images. Now, go outside and live your Summer day to the fullest!

This had to have been one of the most ideal shoots I have even been a part of. In my trusty apple orchard in good old Hammonton, we experienced and ideal sunset with this beautiful family. Kirsten, Marc and little Colton are expecting the newest member of the family any day now. Colton is a big time Mamma’s boy in the sweetest possible way! Mom works hard as a retail buyer, and dad works from home, so you can tell he loves his mama time. Marc kept Colton really busy during Kirsten’s portraits by going for walks and hunting for little apples on the trees. The sun sank over us and it just draped this family in golden light. Kirsten loved these images so much that she ordered an album! I am so proud of this session and so excited for this family to grow so I can see them again and again! Thanks you for this day and these wonderful clients of mine. <3

The last time we saw this family was in the orchards, for mommy’s maternity session. Two days after that shoot a healthy and happy Carter was delivered to his mother’s arms! So here he is for his newborn session that we shot in my Hammonton studio. I’m not sure if you can tell, but big sister Callie is a little bit obsessed with her new baby brother, and who wouldn’t be? Those pouty little lips, his sleepy little demeanor. It’s hard to to fall in love instantly. The sibs were happy to pose on one of my flokati rugs and the backdrop that I made myself (thank you very much lol). But the real winner here is the antique quilt you see under Carter. It was made for Carter’s dad when he was a baby. So Cater gets to snooze on a quilt that was made by his great grandmother! So sentimental! And we had to get the Philadelphia Flyers swag on the baby. His dad, Nick, is only the biggest fan out there! So another one in the books for this beautiful family. I can’t get enough of them! Hope you enjoy as well…
