I always thoroughly wash my hands right before touching baby and will continue to wear a mask. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me as I am happy to answer any questions.

Family of four sitting on a blanket talking with each other as the sun sets behind them.Mini Family Photo Session in Oregon, WII caught some great candid moments with this family during their summer mini photo session in Oregon, WI. It was fun seeing how they interacted with each other during their family photo shoot just outside of Madison. Okay, I know it’s February and my mini summer photo sessions were back in August. But, I eventually wanted to circle back and write a blog post about them. It was two back to back days of meeting great families, enjoying beautiful weather and capturing sweet family photos. All of the families were so much fun to work with! Mini sessions are always fun for me to shoot. I love the variety of ages, varying number of kids and different family dynamics. We got very lucky with beautiful sunshine and very few bugs. My summer mini photo sessions were a fundraiser for the Oregon Public Library as they are raising money to build a new library. Half of the session fee was donated to the library and I’m happy to say the final donation came to $550! I loved to read when I was a kid and have fond memories of riding my bike to the Oregon Public Library in the summer to pick out new books so it was a fun way for me to give back.

Check out the photos above for a small sampling of the family photos captured during these mini sessions. For mini photo shoots I like to get a variety of shots - some posed, some candid, some showing movement and real interactions between family members. If you’d like to be one of the first to know about dates for my 2021 mini photo sessions in the Madison area contact me to get on the list!

Oregon, WI | Newborn Photographer https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2021/2/oregon-wi-newborn-photographer Photography Studio | Oregon, WIPhotography Studio | Oregon, WINewborn photo sessions in my new studio are quickly becoming my favorite type of session. I have a variety of wraps, props and colors available for parents to choose from.

I’m finally getting caught up with blog posts for all of my recent newborn photo sessions! I still have lots of blog posts to do for summer mini sessions, fall mini sessions and holiday mini sessions but that’s for another day. 

This little guy was absolutely adorable. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of him! He was a strong little man and resisted being wrapped at first but once I got him settled and cozy it was smooth sailing. I’m super excited that his parents purchased the Baby’s First Year package for him. It's a multi-session photo package that includes newborn photos, 4 month, 8 month and one year old photo sessions. It’s a great way to document a baby’s first year in photos and to remember all those fun stages and changes. I know from experience that with sleep deprivation and adjusting to a new baby those first few months can sometimes be a blur. I can’t wait to see him again for his 4-month-old session in May!

If you’d like to document your baby’s first year in photos definitely consider this multi-session package. It’s an easy way to make sure you’ve got all the first year milestones covered. And, it doesn’t require much effort on your part - I’ll contact you a month or so prior to each session to schedule a date and time and provide all the props and even some outfits. All you have to do is bring the baby! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to capture your little one from newborn to first birthday!

Newborn Photos | Madison, WI https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2021/2/newborn-photos-madison-wi Infant in a floral wrap laying in a wooden basket.Madison newborn photographerThis in-home newborn session went about as smoothly as can be. Mom had followed all of my newborn photo session prep suggestions to a T and we cruised through the session in no time.

I've been so busy with newborn photo sessions lately and I love it! My favorite part is putting together all the props, layers, wraps and accessories once mom and dad have picked out what colors they’d like to use for the session. Okay, maybe that’s not my most favorite part. Getting to see the adorable little baby and getting them all situated for their photo debut is probably the best part 😍

This baby girl and her big sister wore matching wearing soft pink with pearl embellishments. Big sister was so excited to have her picture taken. She was so sweet giving hugs and kisses to her baby sister. It just melted my heart!

I’m going to be even more excited for newborn sessions once I put the finishing touches on my new studio. I can’t wait to share photos with a glimpse into the space. If you’re expecting and are thinking about a newborn photo session get in touch with me! I recommend booking when you’re about 7 months along but you can always do it earlier too. If you’re more than 7 months along don’t hesitate to contact me to check availability - I always try to squeeze in newborn sessions because I love doing them 😊 Since baby’s arrival is unpredictable I’ll put your due date on my calendar for now and once the baby is born contact me within a day or so and we’ll schedule an exact date and time for the session. Check out my newborns page for more details of what is included and then contact me to book your session. I can’t wait to meet you and your family!

Welcome to the world sweet boy! I’m a little behind with my blogging 🙈 - this newborn session in Oregon, WI was from December. 

It was so nice to meet baby boy and his family. His oldest brother was so good about holding him and supporting his head while I was taking their photos. We were able to get in a lot of different types of shots during the session - prop shots wrapped in a swaddle, sibling photos, family photos, and detail shots of his tiny hands and feet. All in all, it was a great newborn session!

If you’re expecting and looking for newborn or maternity photos contact me to discuss photo package options! It’s never too early to plan your session and get on my calendar. Sessions take place in my studio and include wraps, hats, headbands and props from my extensive collection - there’s nothing for you to provide. All sessions include an online gallery for your to view, share and download your photos. A print release is included with all sessions. For convenience, you can also order photos and birth announcements directly from your gallery. Contact me with any questions or to reserve your session!

Photography Studio | Oregon, WI | Coming Soon https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2021/2/photography-studio-oregon-wi-coming-soon I am beyond excited to share that I’ll soon have my own little studio space! We’re closing on a new house three weeks from today and I’ll be taking over one of the extra bedrooms to use as a studio. I can’t wait to move in and get everything set up. I’ve been pinning ideas like crazy on Pinterest of things I’d like to incorporate and ways to organize. The studio will be perfect for newborn sessions, milestone sessions (the 4 and 8 month sessions included in the Baby’s First Year package), and one year old sessions (with or without a cake). While my regular family photo sessions are held outdoors, I’ll have enough room to do family and sibling shots during newborn sessions. 

I’ve been dreaming of a studio space for the last two and a half years. And, being that I can’t resist buying every adorable newborn prop I see, I’ve begun to accumulate quite the stash of wraps, hats, headbands, props and outfits. It will be so nice to have a dedicated space to organize and store everything. I’m hoping to have everything set up by early to mid March 2021! Stay tuned for another blog post with photos and maybe even a video tour of my new studio space!

I can't wait to welcome my littlest clients to the new studio. If you're expecting and are interested in maternity photos or a newborn photo session send me an email or contact me via this form. I'll respond with all the details of the session and include tips to help you prep for the session. I'd love to work with you and your family :)

For his one year old session we took advantage of beautiful weather and pretty flowers for an evening outdoor session. The light was gorgeous and gave that warm hazy glow to the photos.

It's amazing how much kids grow and change in one year. Documenting these changes with family photos is a great keepsake to have and look back on years from now. Family sessions will include some posed photos but I also try to capture more candid moments as well. For older kids, we'll do some games or silly prompts to capture natural smiles. For younger kids, tickles and snuggles are great for capturing smiles from little ones. Family sessions are approximately 45 minutes and include 20 images with print release.

When I was a kid growing up in Oregon, one of my favorite things to do in the summer was riding my bike to the library.

During every newborn and 6 month photo session I have to get shots of their cute little toes. They are just so perfect!

Isn't she adorable?! I love capturing 6 month photo sessions. Babies at this age are so expressive. Their facial expressions crack me up! During this session, we got some shots of the whole family, baby with mom, baby with dad and just baby. A six month photo session is a great way to remember this stage in your baby's developement.

If you have a 6 month old and are interested in preserving these memories contact me to discuss your session! Options are available for the whole family or just the baby. I can't wait to meet you and your family!

We had a beautiful evening for this family photo session in Oregon, WI. It's always fun to celebrate a baby milestone with photos and this little guy is turning one year old this month! Happy first birthday!

I'm pretty sure this park is my new favorite location for photo sessions. I loved the way the sun was streaming in through the trees. The purple flowers in the background gave a nice pop of color as well. I can't wait to see what's in bloom when I go back next time!

If you're looking for summer family photos in the Oregon, WI area let me know! Summer is a great time for a photo session. The weather is nice and the back-to-school scramble hasn't started yet. Family photo sessions are 45-60 minutes and include 20 edited images with print release (meaning you're free to print the photos wherever you'd like). We'll get a variety of shots - the whole family, just the kids, kids individually, etc. I like to get some posed with everyone looking at the camera but I also love to capture more candid moments of family members interacting with each other. I have various games and questions for the kids so that they loosen up and have fun. This makes the photo session seem like a fun game rather than a chore (which also makes the session more enjoyable for mom and dad too). I'd love to meet you and your family! Contact me to book your session!

He's definitely the cutest reindeer I've ever seen! Wrapped newborn sessionWrapped newborn sessionI got such a kick out of the photos from this newborn session in Sauk City, WI. In many of the photos baby boy had such a serious look on his face. It was absolutely adorable and one of the many reasons I love newborn sessions.

Newborn baby boy wrapped and laying on faux fur while sleeping.Baby photo session Sauk CityI loved the facial expressions he made during his newborn session in Sauk City!

Newborn baby wearing a reindeer hat laying in a bed surrounded with red Christmas ornaments.Christmas newborn sessionBeing that this little guy was born on Christmas Eve I just had to use a reindeer hat and christmas ornaments for a couple shots during his newborn session. Happy new year! I'm pretty sure the best way to kick off the new year is by spending an afternoon taking newborn photos. At least for me, anyway! Isn't he adorable? That face is absolutely precious. This little guy arrived right before Christmas and all I can say is Best. Present. Ever. Being that he was born around the holidays we included a couple holiday themed photos in his session. Check out the photos above for a glimpse into his session.

The fedora hat was just too much! Toddler and parent sessionToddler and parent sessionWhee! Mom, Dad and toddler all had a great time at their mini session. This shot was them swinging their little boy through the air while I snapped photos. Fall family photos | Sauk Prairie, WIFall family photos | Sauk Prairie, WII first had the pleasuring of photographing Colton's cake smash session for his first birthday. I was so happy when they returned for a fall family mini session! Look at those happy faces. That's love!

I had the pleasure of photographing this cutie when he turned one for his vintage themed cake smash session. I was excited when his mom booked a fall mini session to get shots of the whole family. It's such an honor when clients return for another session and I'm grateful for the wonderful clients I have.

Little man arrived looking stylish as ever in a warm sweater and the most adorable hat. We quickly went to work and got some great shots of him individually, all three of them together, mom and son, dad and son, and even snuck in one of just mom and dad together. I love getting shots of couples during mini and family sessions. Sometimes it's the first professional photo couples have had taken since their wedding. Whew, we were able to pack a lot of shots into a 20 minute mini session!

Is it time to update your family photos? Shoot me an email to discuss your family session. I'd love to capture memories for your family!

They were totally up for anything during their fall mini session in Cross Plains, WI. I captured some great laughs and reactions between family members.

They did an awesome job posing for their fall family photos just outside of Madison, WI. All cuddled up!All cuddled up!These sweet siblings didn't mind wrapping up in a blanket to get warm during their very cold mini photo session in Cross Plains, WI. It was freezing this particular day but you've never know it by looking at them! Mom, son, and daughter looking at each other and sharing a laugh.What's so funny?These two had a good laugh with mom during their fall mini session in Cross Plains, WI. I'm not going to lie, I had terrible luck with the weather during my mini sessions this year. The first weekend was really, really cold. The second weekend there was a steady rain all day. However, luckily for me, I have amazing clients that were willing to forget about the less than ideal conditions and have a great time at their mini session despite what Mother Nature was sending our way.

It was so nice to meet this sweet family. I love seeing families laugh and have fun together at sessions. My goal during family sessions is for families to forget about the camera and have fun with each other. I've got various games and silly things to do to achieve this. Think photo sessions have to be stiff and boring? No way! We'll get the Christmas card shot where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera but we'll also capture authentic interactions and candid moments. Those are the moments you'll treasure looking back at years from now. So what are you waiting for? Contact me to reserve your session!

I love how he looked right into the camera and gave that sweet smile. He (and his parents) absolutely rocked their fall mini photo session just outside of Madison, WI. Indian Lake County Park Mini SessionsIndian Lake County Park Mini SessionsThis was one of the wonderful families I had the opportunity to photograph during my fall mini session event at Indian Lake County Park. What a beautiful location for fall photos!

toddler boy running in the woods with his parents walking behind him.How fast can you run?I've got lots of ways to get smiles during family mini sessions in the Madison, WI area. To get this shot I asked the little guy to show me how fast he could run. It works every time! I had the pleasure of meeting this family at an event I participated in at the Black Earth Children's Museum. It was great to see them again for a fall mini session at Indian Lake County Park. I love shooting at this location as it gives a varied background of prairie, wooded areas and the lake as backdrops. Plus, the location is great as it's close to Sauk Prairie but also not to far from Middleton and Cross Plains. 

I asked this little guy if he could show me how fast he can run. It's a great way to get kids to loosen up and have some fun during their session. I've got numerous tips and tricks up my sleeve to get kids to laugh and have fun during their session which produces natural smiles. Not to mention it also takes some of the stress off of mom and dad. Family photos don't need to be a stressful event. Let me handle getting the smiles and capturing candid moments while you enjoy spending some time cuddling, laughing and enjoying time with your family. If you're interested in a family session contact me with questions or to book your session. I can't wait to hear from you!

I told them to run towards me and they nailed it! Mom and dad proudly looked on from a distance.

Love those laughs!Love those laughs!I loved photographing this sweet family at their home in Prairie du Sac, WI. We explored their backyard and got some great family photos. Fall fun with mom!Fall fun with mom!This little girl was a tough cookie to crack! She was a bit unsure about things during her family photo session in Prairie du Sac, WI. However, towards the end she was smiling and having a great time with mom.

Toddler with arms wrapped around his dad giving him a gigantic hug.Hugs with dadI love how this little guy gave his dad the biggest hug ever during their family photo session in Prairie du Sac. Whew, it was a busy fall! Then with Thanksgiving being so late Christmas snuck up on me very quickly. It's now mid-January and I'm finally getting around to blogging my fall sessions. Stay tuned in the next week or so for more blog posts from the fall including my fall mini sessions. 

This family was so sweet to work with. They had an awesome backyard that provided a great backdrop for their session. It was fun exploring and walking around with the kids. My favorite images from this session are the ones with mom and dad interacting with the kids. We got some great, genuine smiles. Capturing these moments with parents and their little ones is what makes me love my job!

I know life is crazy busy with young kids (I have three of my own!) but take the time to document these moments when they are little. I guarantee you will love looking back at these photos when they're older and will be so glad you had them taken. Family sessions can be booked all year long (consider snowy winter photos for a change!) at a location of your choice or choose from one of my favorite spots. Family sessions are approximately one hour long and include 20 images with print release. I'd love to work with you! Contact me to book your session.

This little guy didn't want to miss a thing during his newborn photo session in Sauk City, WI. He did fall asleep after a little while which allowed us to get a variety of shots - some with his eyes open and some closed. Really though, I think he just wanted to show off those gorgeous eyes. And who could blame him for that?

I love getting to meet little ones at their very first photo session! If you're expecting, contact me to discuss a newborn session. We'll work out the details now so we're all set to go once your little bundle of joy arrives. Newborn sessions work best if the baby is between 7-11 days old. Let me know once he or she is born and we'll pick an exact date and time to have your session. Newborn sessions are approximately 2 hours (we'll take our time and break for feedings as necessary) and include 15 edited images. You'll have a private, password protected online gallery to view, share and download your photos. You'll also receive a print release to print the photos wherever you'd like. I can't wait to meet your little one!

Look at that sweet face! This little guy was an absolute dream during his first photo session. I love meeting all the sweet newborns and families I have the privilege of photographing.

Are you expecting? I recommend having newborn photos taken when the baby is 7-10 days old. If possible, contact me when you're about 7-8 months along. I'll make a note of your due date and we'll pick an exact date once baby arrives. I'll take care of all the wraps, outfits, props, and backdrops. You've got enough on your plate with a newborn, no need to worry about anything else! Visit the Sessions page to view session options. Keep in mind, the first year will fly by! Consider Baby's First Year Multi-Session to capture all of baby's changes from birth to first birthday which includes a cake smash session. Contact me with any questions or to book your session!

Snowy BranchSnowy BranchSnow covered tree in the distance framed by a snowy branch in the foreground. I don't normally shoot landscapes but when I saw how pretty these trees looked along the Wisconsin River I had to run home and get my camera. By the time I returned the snow was lightly falling which made it even more beautiful. It looked like a magical winter wonderland. I was able to capture some nice shots before my fingers got too cold and I had to warm up. When I went back just an hour or so later the snow had melted from the branches. We're so lucky to live in such a pretty area here in Sauk Prairie. The river, bluffs and eagles can't be beat!

Golden SmileGolden SmileHigh school senior girl laying on a blanket in the grass with the sunset behind her illuminating her hair. I love photographing this girl! You’d never know from that beautiful smile and pretty lighting just how cold and windy it actually was during her session. She didn’t let the cold and wind bother her and we were able to get some great shots in the countryside just outside of Sauk City. I can’t wait to share the whole gallery with her!

Senior sessions are one of my favorites! Sessions can include more than one location, up to three outfits, and will be personalized to incorporate sports or any of your other passions. Teeth whitening, eye enhancement and light blemish removal are included in session price. You do not have to order prints from me and will be given a print release to print wherever you’d like. Contact me to book and plan your session.

Autumn WalkAutumn WalkFamily of four walking along a wooded path near the Wisconsin River in Sauk City, WI. It had been such a wet, rainy week that I was worried we might not get this session in. But, we had a break between showers and finished just as the rain began to fall again. Although it was a bit windy and damp, this awesome family wasn't phased a bit! I couldn't wait to get home to start editing. The love big sister has for her little sister was evident in many photos and was so sweet to see. 

There's still time to book your fall family session! Contact me soon to take advantage of the fall foliage.

I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy when he was just 7 days old. Look at all that beautiful hair! He was awake most of the time I was taking his photos but I did manage to get a couple of him snoozing. He was a trooper and put up with me moving him and changing his outfits :) 

Did you know newborn photos are ideally taken when the baby is between 7 and 10 days old? Contact me when you're 7 or 8 months pregnant to get a tentative timeframe booked shortly after your due date. Newborn sessions include various poses and backgrounds and at least 15 edited images. Sessions can be newborn only or include a few photos with siblings and/or mom and dad. As always, you will be given a print release allowing you to download the photos and print wherever you choose. A newborn session also makes a great baby shower gift!

Happy first birthday to this little guy! It’s hard to believe its been a year since I was taking his newborn photos. To celebrate his big day we did a cake smash session. He was all smiles before the cake. However, once given the cake he didn't know what to think! I captured some funny expressions as he slowly started eating it. I'm sure in time he'll learn to love it!

Quick Print vs. Pro Photo Lab https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2018/7/quick-print-vs-pro-photo-lab Prints ComparisonPrints ComparisonComparison between prints from a quick print/same day photo lab vs. a professional photo lab.

One of the benefits of choosing Erin Haselwander Photography is that you will receive a print release which means you can print your photos wherever you'd like. No need to set an appointment with me to view them, choose which photos from the session you want to purchase, pay an arm and a leg to order prints from me or buy the digital files. With me, you just download your photos from your online gallery - easy peasy!

So, your session is over, the photos are edited, you've downloaded the images from your private gallery and now you're ready to order prints. Where do you get them printed? While you're free to print wherever you'd like, I do recommend using a professional print lab to get the best quality prints. It's not that much more expensive than a quick print service (e.g., Walgreens, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) but the quality is much better. I recommend mpix.com as I've always had a great experience ordering prints from there. To illustrate the difference, I ordered a set of prints from a quick print service (Walgreens) and the same set of prints from mpix. Once I received both sets of photos I scanned them and have not done any further editing other than labeling which is which. I'll admit, the quality of both photos is degraded when they are scanned and you're looking at them on a computer screen. However, it's still easy to tell which print is of a better quality. Here is what I found in my comparison:

Quick Print vs. Pro Photo Lab

  • The skin tones from the quick print set of photos were red and blotchy
  • The quick print photos were pixelated, meaning not as clear and crisp
  • The colors were not as realistic or accurate in the quick print set
  • Any highlights (white or light colored areas) in the image were much too bright on the quick print photos
  • The pro lab photos were printed with a matte finish which gave off less glare
  • The pro lab photos were printed on higher quality photo paper

To sum it all up, you took the time to coordinate outfits for your family, got everyone dressed, and completed your session - get the most out of your investment by sending your photos to a professional photo lab. You'll be glad you did!

If you've never used mpix.com click here to receive $5 off your first order. Throughout the year they also offer discounts on prints and/or free shipping which I will post to my Facebook page so keep an eye out for those posts!

Daniel and Heidi are such a cute couple! It was cloudy and looking like rain all day but when we met for their session the sun was peaking out and we had a perfect evening for photos (except for a few pesky mosquitos). We got some shots with the Wisconsin River in the background and walked around the paths at August Derleth Park here in Sauk City. It was so nice to meet them and hear a little bit about their love story. Happy anniversary you two!

Dad and baby both have big smiles on their faces. I could not get over how smiley and happy this sweet girl was when I first arrived at their house! It was so much fun to see her again and catch up with her mama. We were able to walk a short distance from their house and have a beautiful background for their family photos. I really loved seeing the way she smiled at her mommy and daddy. Some of my favorite shots from this session were of her and her mama looking at each other instead of the camera. I feel so fortunate to have been able to capture the love and connection between this sweet family.

What's In My Bag of Tricks https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2018/5/whats-in-my-bag-of-tricks Tricks of the tradeTricks of the tradeThese are the items I bring with me to entertain and keep the attention of small kids when taking their photos. Items include, maraca, talking elmo, stuffed purple monster, silly heart headband, and bubbles. Sometimes when I'm loading the car for a session I feel like I'm packing up to go on a week long vacation! I bring all of the normal things you'd expect a photographer to have:

  • Camera bag with camera, lenses, an extra battery and extra memory cards
  • A step ladder (because I'm short)
  • A light reflector for certain lighting situations
  • Seating options such as blankets, small chairs, stools and crates
  • Any props that might be appropriate for the session

If your session includes photos with kids you'll see that I also bring a colorful tote. This is what I call my "bag of tricks" that I use to capture or keep the attention of kids when I'm taking their photo. As you can see from the photo above, I bring:

  • An Elmo doll that talks and plays music
  • A purple monster that makes silly noises
  • A maraca to shake 
  • A silly headband with glittery hearts that bobs around as I move
  • Small bottles of bubbles that I usually hand out at the end of the session

Yes, I look kind of ridiculous wearing the headband and shaking a maraca. But, you've got to do what you've got to do to get those smiles, right? Sometimes I don't need many, if any, of the items. Sometimes I have to pull out everything and that's okay too.

So, if you see a crazy looking lady wearing a glittery headband, shaking a maraca and waving a purple monster in the air, it's probably just me taking photos ;)

Aren't these 4 adorable? I met up with the whole family in Roxbury, just outside of Sauk City to take their family photos. The ground was a bit soggy due to all the rain we had gotten earlier in the week but they were troopers.

Tips for Choosing Outfits https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2018/5/tips-for-choosing-outfits Are you stumped about how to dress your family for your upcoming photo session? Clients often have questions about selecting outfits. To make this a bit easier, I've put together a list of tips and some things to avoid. Most importantly though, dress in what makes you and your family feel comfortable. If someone isn't comfortable or happy with what they are wearing it will come through in the photos and we don't want that. Hopefully you will find the tips below helpful. Also check out the spring and summer clothing guide I've put together for color combinations and clothing examples. If you have any questions about what to wear or want to discuss outfits ahead of your session don't hesitate to contact me. I'm here to help!

Tips for choosing outfits:

  • Choose a coordinating color scheme. If there is a shirt you like for one of the kids, have everyone else wear colors that play off of that. For example, a plaid shirt would have multiple colors. Pick out some of the colors in the plaid for others in the family to wear. It doesn't have to be a perfect color match, close is good.
  • Patterns on kids are okay as long as it's not too small or busy. For adults, it's best to stick to solid colors as it's less distracting and can have a slimming effect.
  • Feel free to mix textures or layer. A knit sweater, jean jacket, vest, cardigan, or button up shirt all are good options for adding texture and layering which adds visual interest to your photos.
  • Accessorize! For ladies and girls a scarf or necklace with a solid color shirt looks really nice. A belt or fun shoes is also great. For boys, consider a newsboy cap as that always looks adorable (as long as it doesn't obstruct the face).
  • Dress for the season. If your photo session is in the spring or summer then short sleeves, dresses, shorts, etc. make sense with an outdoor background of greenery. In the fall, go for pants, sweaters, vests, etc. to match the feel of the changing fall foliage.

Things to avoid:

  • Stripes don't photograph well. I recommend avoiding stripes altogether for both kids and adults. If you do wear stripes, wider is better than thin.
  • Really bright or neon colors can reflect strangely on your skin. A pop of color here or there is great but avoid overly bright and neon colors.
  • Coordinate but don't get too matchy-matchy. For example, everyone wearing the same color shirt and jeans doesn't give as much visual interest to your photos.
  • Clothing with words or graphics are distracting and will draw attention to the clothes rather than the face.
  • Avoid clothing that is really trendy right now. Your photos will look dated more quickly. It's better to go for a timeless, classic look.

Don't stress! These tips are just meant to guide you and give you ideas if you need them.

My favorite is the vintage rose inspired look. It's such a classic, pretty color scheme. The spring inspired look would also be great with mustard yellow mixed in.

We are fortunate to live in an awesome neighborhood. This past weekend we had an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. Of course, an egg hunt wouldn’t be complete without a visit from the Easter bunny! I had fun putting together a little spring themed set-up to take photos of the kids with the bunny. It was a great time!

How I Got Started in Photography https://www.erinhaselwanderphotography.com/blog/2018/3/how-i-got-started-in-photography Welcome to the blog! I thought I would start things off by giving a little background about myself.

I’ve always been interested in photography and remember even as a little kid really enjoying taking pictures. Back then of course, you used rolls of film. I remember dropping them off at the local Ben Franklin store to be sent off for developing. A couple of days later (which felt like forever) they would be ready for pick up. My how things have changed! 

A few years after college I became interested in graphic design. I enrolled in a program which included a photography course. It was then that my interest in photography was renewed. From then on I’ve been taking photos pretty regularly. I started with taking photos of nature and architecture. Since having kids my focus has been on portraits which has become my favorite type of photography. The smiles from little ones can’t be beat! I also like to capture the love and sweet interactions between siblings when they think I’m not watching. I’d love to work with you to capture special moments of your family. 

After being cooped up all winter I’m excited for spring to get back outside to shoot! Contact me if you’d like to book a session.
