Had such a great time capturing these photos in a field near Frisco. So cool that this week I met the Miller’s newborn baby girl, Sanaa Elise, and did portraits of her. She joins big brother Cameron to complete the family. The Miller’s ordered a really cool framed collage of these images and it turned out AMAZING! Next we are going to do a gorgeous, custom album mixing some of the maternity and newborn photos. Can’t wait to see the finished products!
I have been doing this family’s photos for 20+ years. Baby photos, children’s photos, family photos, senior photos and anything in between. I am their FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER. Having a photographer document your life, your love, and your legacy is important. The images created for this family tell their story and have engrained memories for all. I know each family member’s personality and this helps me successfully create images they will treasure. Just as a family chooses other professionals like doctors, dentists, etc., a family photographer should be considered. This is the generation that takes lots of photos- and that is great, however documenting milestones and family portraits should be left to the professional so that the images will become a tangible part of their history. Otherwise precious memories will literally get lost in the “clouds.”
Amanda was so natural, so fun to work with and I love the results!!!! She is a senior at Lone Star HS in Frisco who is involved with Varsity Cheer, NHS, Shattered Dreams, FCA, and Friends of Rachel. Her favorite subject is Physics (wow!) She loves country music, specifically George Strait and Thomas Rhett. The best movie she has ever seen is Hacksaw Ridge. Here are a few of Amanda’s favorites from her senior portrait session with Innovative Images.
We recently photographed Kendall for her senior photos. She was lots of fun and the results were stunning. She isn’t a “country” girl, so we decided to do part of the shoot near downtown Dallas. Kendall has a great smile but can pull off the more serious poses too. Her favorite activity in her spare time is watching Netflix. She has a chocolate lab named Cocoa Bean, a whippet named Jasper and a german shepherd named Charlie. Her favorite season is FALL and a place she would love to visit is Spain.
They say that a good headshot is the new handshake. Think about how much people nowadays are looking at photos….putting a fresh, friendly, professional face out in print and online is VITALLY IMPORTANT to business. What constitutes a great business photo? 1. It reflects your unique brand. 2. It is current – avoid using something that is over 5 years old. 3. It reflects who you are and what you do.. 4. It conveys Quality and Professionalism. 5. It establishes eye contact. Eye contact draws people in and engenders trust. Are you starting to see the importance of your headshot? How do you get a quality headshot? CALL A PROFESSIONAL! It is obvious when someone is using an unprofessional image with poor quality. I recall seeing an ad for a local insurance agent recently that read, “Unsure? Insure! The picture of the agent was completely awful with an expression that portrayed uncertainty. There is no way I would have called this agent for insurance when she looked absolutely unsure and unhappy.

Every year we are asked the same question…..”What do we wear for our portraits this year?” It’s a great question because poor planning/clothing can pretty much destroy an otherwise awesome photo. Families are units of individual people so dressing in all exact matching clothing is not ideal. NEITHER IS EVERYONE WEARING THEIR FAVORITE OUTFIT! Color harmony is super important. If your goal is to have something beautiful to put on your wall at home, you should consider dressing is a color palette that works well with the decor you have. We have a page dedicated to clothing in family photos. Here is the link: https://www.pinterest.com/iimagesphotog/clothing-suggestions-for-family-portraits/
I especially love this chart as a reference for colors that look great together.
