Crystal & Frank

   Crystal is a wedding photographer here in the Scranton area and Frank is my Chiropractor. Yesterday, was actually the first time Crystal and I have met. We have talked many times via email and Facebook, but we have never run into each other before she asked me to do her session. One of the things that saddens me about being a photographer is that we rarely get pictures with us in them. We spend all our time behind the camera and very little in front of it so I was more than happy to give these images to Crystal when she asked. Later this week, I may even post some pictures of my family that were taken of us recently, but for now I’m happy to give the gift of photography to a photographer. Being a Scranton maternity photographer I know how meaningful it is to have this part of your families life documented in a way that you are proud of.

Crystal & Frank came to my home to begin their session and we spent a bit of time getting to know each other in person before the session started. I love getting to know couples before I work with them. Maternity photography is a very intimate experience. A soon to be mother is full of emotions that they have either never experienced or not experienced all that often so getting to know my subject before I pull out the camera is an essential party of my process. Getting people comfortable with me and getting comfortable with my subject is where the magic really happens. I often tell people that creating a comfortable environment for the photography to happen is the most essential part of my process. Once people are comfortable they are free to just be who they are and my job is very easy. I know that sounds strange to hear from a maternity photographer, but taking the pictures is the easy part of my process and vision for how I want the session to turn out. Collaboration between both parties is what makes the magic happen.

Here are a few images from their session that I fell in love with. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

     I love everything about this next image. This abandoned home a block away from my house was the perfect location for this shot. I am so thankful that we walked through the woods to find it. The old abandoned boat was what I was originally looking for and was happy when we walked up on this old house as it made the perfect backdrop for this next series of images.

 Being a Scranton maternity photographer is a fun job when I get an adventurous couple to work with. Both of these wonderful people were a pleasure to work with.

Amanda contacted my Scranton family portrait studio about two months ago and asked me to photograph her family and I was honored that she asked. We had never met, although she is a wedding photographer here in the area where I live.  Amanda is the owner of Amanda grace Images here in Scranton and as a photographer you rarely if ever have any pictures of you with your kids in them.

It was a pleasure to give the gift of photography to a photographer and I love that other photographers in the area ask me to do it so often. I can’t think of a higher compliment then to be trusted by another photographer to capture images of their family.

Preparing For Your Session

 

Nothing makes a woman glow more then carrying a child and here at Darkershadesofbrown Photography we want to help you remember that period in your life by offering creative photography for you to document it. You are about to do a very special and, for a few of you, once in a life time photo shoot! It’s worth it to take some time and prepare for it and finding Scranton maternity photographers to fit the needs of a modern mother to be is a tough task. Our goal in the portrait studio is to let you be who who are and capture the beautiful mother you are about to be.

On the day of your session, plan to relax and take it easy. Getting your hair and/or makeup done is a nice treat for yourself, and will definitely contribute to a more polished look. Choosing your outfit the night before and taking a nap on the day of the shoot will make you feel well-rested, relaxed and attractive.

A couple of hours before your session, remove any clothing that may cause lines or marks on the body.

Scarves, shawls and soft fluid fabrics make wonderful wraps for maternity portraits. Bring them along. Fabrics that cling to your curves also work well. Jeans and tops with subtle or no pattern will provide for a more contemporary look. I love all dresses, vintage and modern. The only thing I am not a big fan is whites. White is a difficult color to photograph during a natural light session. Off whites, pastels or bright tropical colors are better choices.

Keep accessories to a minimum since these can distract from a portrait.

Before the session, please discuss with me what you want them to be soft and intimate? Romantic? Contemporary? Classic? All this should be handled in the studio or via email at your consultation

Let me know about any birthmarks, scars or tattoos you may have. Do you want these left on final prints or removed?

Once the photo shoot begins, relax. Enjoy the intimacy and beauty of the moment. Revel in your glow. The most beautiful woman is the one about to become a mother.

So many family sessions to share on the blog I don’t know where to begin. At our family portrait studio in Scranton we are full of people wanting their holiday pictures taken and often we head out of the studio for a lifestyle session. Documenting a family and their love for each other was one of the best things I did this week and this session was one of my favorites. Having a young family myself, I know how meaningful it is to have good pictures to hang on your wall. I have been a father now for two years and I am constantly taking pictures of my son. I am a big fan of apple products and they sell this little device that sits on top of my entertainment center called an Apple TV. I have probably 1000 pictures on it loaded with memories of my family via pictures I have taken over the last few years. If I can offer any advice to new parents it would be to get lots of pictures taken of your growing family. The time goes by so fast and you really want to make sure that you have pictures to remember each stage of your family as it grows. I know that when I am an old man I will be looking at the pictures I have taken over the years of my family. They are probably my most treasured possession.

Photographing baby bellies is just fun! There is no other way to say it without the words “it is a great way to spend an evening with a camera” coming out of my mouth. I have worked with Stacia & Kevin a few times over the years. We photographed their wedding a few years back and this year we actually photographed Stacia’s brother and his beautiful wife. At this point I feel like I know this family really well. When Stacia contacted me and told me she was pregnant I was really excited to be working with them again. One of the best things about being a photographer here in Scranton is seeing families grow over the years. Nothing makes me happier then seeing people come back to me to document important events in their life. I Can’t wait to see Stacia & Kevin come back in about a month so that I can get this little one in the studio for their newborn session.

One of the things we offer in the studio is the option to book your maternity and newborn session as an all in one package. For details about how you can do that with us head on over to our contact page and ask us about how you can get the discount applied to your time with us. We love being able to document both your maternity and newborn session and giving you memories that will last a lifetime.

A quick shot in our Scranton Newborn Photographer studio today of my son Indiana. I really couldn’t resist the “adorableness” of this image. One of the great things about being a newborn photographer in Scranton is the absolute joy people are to be around who are first time parents. It reminds me of how I felt when this kid was born. As many of you know who follow our personal blog we became first time parents about two years ago. I really was nervous about becoming a father. I don’t know why as I was raised in a big family. My parents had six kids and 47 foster children. No really, they had 47 foster children. It was like the united nations in my hone growing up. My mother had a newborn in her home for 27 straight years. My brother an I Charles were the last two foster kids my parents had before my father finally said no to the adoption agency. Being the last two foster kids in my mothers arms was fortunate for us. They decided that they would keep us and they are the only family I have ever known. I don’t know why I am telling this story today, but before I start babbling let me just say I had nothing to worry about when I found out we were going to be having our first child. Parenting is pretty awesome and I had good role models.

The Gillian family came to our Scranton Newborn Portrait Studio last week for some newborn photography and thought I would give a little preview of their session on the blog today. I worked with them both for their maternity session and we had a fun day working together so when they came into the studio with this little one it felt like there was a new member of the family coming for a visit.

I love working with young families who are having their first child. I remember a few years ago when my wife and I had our first child and I can honestly say their is nothing like seeing new first time parents and the joy they have about the new little person they have welcomed into their family.

The Lavelle family invited me to their home in Clarks Summit for their newborn family pictures this week and gave me their whole home to work with for their pictures. I was not able to photograph their wedding a few years ago so when they had their first child they asked me to photograph him when they brought him home from the hospital. It was really strange meeting them because I did not recognize them and then they started to tell me the story of how they met with me to photograph their wedding. Unfortunately, due to a scheduling change at the last minute I was not available on their wedding day. After they saw these pictures they asked me if I would be willing to photograph child’s baptism so a few weeks later I met up with them again for a few hours to document that special time in their lives. As a photographer you really are invited into peoples lives in a way that is hard to explain. There is so much joy that I get out of what I do and I feel really blessed about what I do for a living.

Every now and then I get a call about a family portrait session that involves around a dozen grandchildren. Most of the time I tell people I am not really interested in such a project. It’s not because I don’t want to do that kind of photography. I actually love the idea of photographing a half dozen kids.

The problem is usually managing expectations.

I could bring all the kids into the studio and get a very formal photograph, but things are changing in the photography industry as of late.

I like to think I am on the front end of that change here in Scranton. A family session with us is typically pretty crazy. It’s full of energy laughter and letting kids just be kids.

I like to capture children as they are and not force them into behaving in such a way that is not natural to them. What ends of happening is a series of pictures that are meant to be displayed together that represent the happiness that is a family.

Here are a few of my favorites from this session last week.
