FotoFriday: There’s Always a 1st

My Friday started off by exploring uncharted territory here in the studio with a session that ended more unusual than most.  First birthdays are sort of a big landmark so we needed to make sure we really caught the experience of the big #1 for this little guy. He started out great. He sat there looking super cute in his little shirt and tie. When the bubble noises and patty cake games ceased to keep his attention we decided it was time to pull out the cake. Every birthday party has to have a cake and this first birthday had to be celebrated by a cake smashing celebration.

It is not often that your parents place an entire cake in front of you that you can do whatever you would like with. I would have gone after the frosting…

…In this situation he was really not a fan of the frosting because the bow was way more exciting. Things started to get messy when we tried to show him what to do…

… and then this happened.

Poor guy. So, off to the bathroom he went to get cleaned up.

As I was walking by the bathroom mom opened the door and I noticed he was perfectly content sitting in the sink with the water running. He was splashing water everywhere and just having a great time. So we grabbed the light and quickly rolled it into the bathroom, which gave us this cute shot :)

We have never shot in the bathroom before, until today. I think it just added to the entire experience and it was fun to document everything right down to the very end. Apparently, sinks are way more fun than cakes. Happy Friday!

FotoFly has finally Landed!

Well, we’re finally opening the doors and are ready to go! Everyone is really excited about the studio and even more excited to get started this week. FotoFly introduces a new flight to photography with great prices and a unique and very artistic approach to the studio experience.

Our studio has two Fotowings where sessions will take place, and we have staggered
appointments in such a way that no two sessions will begin at the same time. The reserved wing will be where the FotoSession begins and where the majority of the photos will be taken. However, in most cases, photos will be taken in both wings. While both wings can accommodate any age group, we do have a few recommendations. The left wing is recommended for older children, seniors, families, and large groups. The right wing is recommended for newborns, toddlers, small groups of young children, and families. Both wings have canvas and fabric backdrops available. Here are a few images so you can get an idea of what they look like.
There is no charge to schedule an appointment. At FotoFly you only pay if you are satisfied with your session, so you pay $79 for a copyright release CD for your sitting. There is NO sitting fee at FotoFly and your sitting may vary from 20-45 minutes. This week, July 5-9, FotoFly is welcoming all family and friends to the studio by offering $30 off! You can get a disk of your session for $49 THIS WEEK ONLY, schedule now to take advantage of this price! Our grand opening will be held this upcoming Saturday July 10th so if you can’t make it during the week come join us Saturday!
Make sure to follow us on both facebook and twitter to keep updated with studio news and new blog posts. Each week we will be posting a tips and tricks post on the blog which will be everything from clothing ideas to camera tips, as well as new images from the week, so check back every Monday and Friday for new posts.

We look forward to meeting you!
