It is with very mixed emotions that I type this post. I had intended to work right up until I delivered this child as I did with my first. However last Sunday at only 31 weeks my second son decided he wanted to meet this world way too early. Thankfully we were able to stop my preterm labor from progressing. At the current time I just do not have the energy to photograph clients. It breaks my heart to turn down new moms and mommas to be for my beloved maternity and newborn sessions. However in the interest of my family I will be temporarily closed for portrait sessions until sometime after this child arrives. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
My sweet cousin Rachel told me during her portrait session she finally felt like a High School Senior. I know it was a tiny little compliment in the grand scheme of things but man it made me feel like I was doing a great job. I know I say this a lot but I really love my job! I have know Miss Rachel her entire life, being family and all but whether I am biased or not. She is a beautiful young woman inside and out! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her. Rachel is officially off to college in the fall. She is going to have so much fun.
These senior portraits were taken at Bond Park. I know not my normal area but what can I say. Have camera will travel ;) I was a little nervous when we arrived at the park and the entire walkway to and around the docks was underwater. But despite all the earlier rain we had a ton of great location choices. I especially loved the cool bamboo wall they put in. What a great high school senior portrait session, I was so happy to be a part of her big graduation milestone. Congratulations to Rachel and her parents for a job well done!
For this Maternity Casting Call I would like to photograph a few specific poses for my maternity portfolio. I am looking for very confident pregnant mammas who are willing to let me try some new ideas and in turn you get a free 11×14 maternity photo for your time! Maternity Casting Call sessions will be held throughout March – June
Mamma Models should be:
at least 32 weeks pregnant at time of shoot.
fit, pre-pregnancy - comfortable with posing nude or partially nude; think classic black and white portraiture with a boudoir flare (nothing tasteless or inappropriate)
willing to allow any and all images to be used to promote Insley Photography. Not all images will be anonymous (for example faces will be included but all names will be kept private).
No professional models needed! Photo session will take place at my home studio in Sherrill’s Ford. This will not be a full portrait session; the object of the session will be to achieve a certain pose for my website portfolio. If there is time after the particular image has been achieved, other images may be photographed (but additional poses are not guaranteed). Models must be willing to take suggestions for styling and clothing and in some cases clothing or wraps will be provided. There is no cost for this portrait session. The selected model will receive a free 11×14 print in exchange for her time. Other images may be purchased if desired.
If you would be interested, please follow this link to our special offers page. If you know someone who might be interested please send them my way. I look forward to meeting all the Mammas to be.
