A Fun Little Themed Session


April 13, 2013 by Decorum DIYer

Remember my little nautical photo shoot moodboard? Well, here are some of the shots that resulted. Despite the windy day and three silly children, Jane really captured the spirits of my children. Please consider visiting Jane’s blog/website and consider booking a photo session, if you are local. Have a great day, everyone!

  1. Oh my gosh! They are adorable! It sounds like the props really did the trick. Not only are they cute, but kept them distracted from the photographer. Really great photos! Your friend is talented and your kiddos are cute!

    • Thank you so much. Thankfully, my husband has some handsome genes and my friend is ultra-talented with a camera. Actually I have a lot of very talented friends, both intellectually and artistically. I am so very blessed.

      • Simply Chimerica says:

        Aww the little ones are adorable! Clearly getting their good looks from their Mama!

  2. Those pictures are great! You have seriously cutie patootie kids!! Your friend Jane took some amazing photos and that location was perfect.

    • Thank you! I can’t take full credit for my kiddos, but I need make them myself (with some help from my husband). Jane is a amazing photographer and the location is a few short steps from where I grew up, along the banks of the Gunpowder River (a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay). The location has an even stronger connection to me as I spent many a summer swimming in the river and even worked in the concession stand for three years during college. Great memories all around.

  3. What a whimsical photoshoot! This is use of props in the best sense – – to be engaged with – – not as subjects in and of themselves. I love the message in a bottle and starfish! Christine, you have LOTS of frame-ables here.

    • Thank you, Lauren. Over the weekend, Jane sent me 140 additional photos. She is so super talented that she captured so many more wonderful ‘frame-able’ moments. Jane even included the ‘outtakes’, which have proven to be my favorites, as they showcase my children’s personalities the best. Of course, I’m not going to share every photo, but I am hoping to put a post together of the highlights (with Jane’s permission, of course).
