Fun Alternatives for Displaying Your Photos

Amazing photos deserve an equally amazing display but this doesn’t mean you always have to use a traditional frame to showcase them in your home. Below is some inspiration for deciding how to display your favorite memories.

If your home décor is very contemporary you might want to consider canvas gallery wraps, image blocks or standout mounts to showcase your photos. Going frameless is also a great option if you’re looking for something truly sleek and modern.

If rustic and chic is more your style, then why not turn old pieces of wood into stained photo clipboards, using binder clips to hang the photos against the wood. Another unique option is to hang your photos on a thin cable to make it look like a clothesline. Binder clips also work perfectly for this.

If you are a fan of frames, why not buy different sizes, colors and styles and create one big photo wall that displays a variety of memories. There are so many shapes and designs that you can use to create your photo wall and really make it your own.

Since we work with various creative vendors who offer a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional framing and display options, we are able to help you pick a unique option that suites your home and style. Whether it’s a traditional frame with hand-cut matting, shadow box or float frames, we will help you pick the right option for your home.

No matter which method you choose, get creative. Filling your walls with a lifetime of memories is one of the most special and visual ways to tell the story of your family, so get hanging.

Surviving a Family Photoshoot http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/surviving-a-family-photoshoot  

Surviving a Family Photoshoot

(How to make your next family photo session a stress free one)

 

Family photos are truly timeless and such a great keepsake for future generations. Getting the family together to take those perfect portraits can turn into chaos if not approached correctly. There is usually a lot more to consider when it comes to a family photoshoot since there are members of all ages, which means that there is some extra coordination involved.

Below are some family photoshoot ideas and tips to keep you and your loved ones calm and smiling the whole way through.

  1. Timing is everything. If you have younger children involved in the shoot, try and arrange the photoshoot at a time when they would be well rested. A rested child makes for happy photos. On that note, make sure that all family members have gotten enough sleep the night before as this helps with the fun and relaxation aspects of the session.

  2. Dos and don’ts of bribery. Get your family excited about the photoshoot instead of offering a reward in return for their cooperation. This tends to lead to forced smiles and an irritated bunch of people. If you do have small children coming along it’s not a bad idea to give the photographer some bribery options in the form of toys or small food items to make those difficult moments a little easier

  3. Relinquish control. You may have the urge to direct your children on where to stand, and look and how to pose. It is very common for parents to try instruct their children to smile, remove fingers from mouths etc... unfortunately this can result in the parent not looking in the right direction, taking the childs attention away from the photographer or inadvertently pulling faces as they speak to their child as the shot is taken. it’s best to leave all that to the photographer as they know what will work best and can keep the childs attention. Not having this pressure will also make you feel more relaxed.

  4. It’s not just about the posing. The best photos happen when you’re having fun so joke and play with your children, hold your partner’s hand and just let the moments happen.

  5. Plan ahead. Discuss all of your requirements with your photographer beforehand so that the family photo session can just flow. Let your photographer know if you want specific pictures taken.

  6. Keep those sugar levels up. If everyone is well fed, the photoshoot will also run a lot smoother. It’s also not a bad idea to take a few snacks and some water along for those who might need it.

Unique Photo Session Ideas You’ll Love http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/unique-photo-session-ideas-you-ll-love
Unique Photo Session Ideas You’ll Love

There is nothing quite like capturing memories with your loved ones. Are you someone who enjoys taking beautiful pictures of you and your family? Then you are probably always on the lookout for inspiration for your next photo session. Below are some unique photo ideas that you’ll love.
 

  • First and last day of school. For the first day of school, get some fun pictures of your child getting ready. You can then do the same on the day that they graduate from high school so that you can create an amazing “before and after” picture. You can even choose to add on college photos later.

  • Generational photos. Photos are one of those items that are passed down through generations so why not create one that future family members can treasure. Take a photo with your daughter, mom and grandma to show the generations of women in your family or any other mix of family members that you want to place in a picture together.

  • Pregnancy pictures. There are many fun ways to show your progress through pregnancy and documenting it with photos is the perfect way to capture this time in your life. Years from now you’ll be able to take your child through your journey before you got to meet them and share that special moment with them.

  • Pet portraits. If your pet is a member of your family then capturing memories with them is just as important. There are so many great ways to take some amazing photos whether it’s outside at a park or in the comfort of your own home.

  • Save the date. Getting married in the near future? Taking a quirky couple photo where your wedding date is displayed is a lovely way to invite people to your wedding. You can do anything from writing the date on the bottom of your shoes to using chalkboards or balloons to display the date.

  • Gender reveal. Why not make finding out the gender of your baby a fun surprise for everyone by turning it into a fun photo that you can send around. Some cute ideas include releasing pink or blue balloons out of a box or you could incorporate a cute color frame to hold around your belly.

Choosing the Right Camera for Your Child http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/choosing-the-right-camera-for-your-child  

Choosing the Right Camera for Your Child

If your child has recently started showing an interest in photography and you are thinking about buying them their first camera, there are a few things you need to consider. As a parent you probably know that a kid’s interests can change tomorrow, next week or even next year but the good news is that you can still support their new hobby without breaking the bank.

Here are our top 7 tips for choosing a camera for your kid.

1:  Choose a camera that will enable your child to learn the basics quite quickly. Make sure that the controls and buttons are manageable and that the size of the camera is suited to the size of their hands. The menus should also be logical, easy to read and have intuitive icons that are easy to understand. A small point-and-shoot style is advised for littler children as the larger cameras tend to be surprisingly heavy and difficult for their little hands to manoeuvre.

2:  Children love to experiment and tend to learn faster when they can do so. Some point and shoot camera models as well as all entry level DSLR cameras will allow them to adjust exposure settings such as ISO, shutter speed and aperture. Interchangeable lenses are also a great learning tool but definitely not essential as a beginner.

3:  When deciding on a camera for your child, take a look at the screen. It should be large, bright and have great color reproduction. It should also be easy to use both indoors and outdoors as there is nothing more frustrating than not being able to see your images clearly on the screen due to bright sunlight.

4:  Ensure that the sensor resolution is good enough and meets your specific requirements, especially if you want to print larger size images. In most cases a 10- 14 mega pixel camera is more than sufficient for an entry level photographer.

5:  As a first time photographer, your child will want to keep practicing so it’s important that you are able to extend the camera’s memory using the appropriate memory card for your model. Be sure to transfer the image files regularly to your computer and backup the ones you wish to keep. This will stop your memory card running slowly or filling up while your child is out exploring their new hobby.

6:  Next come the accessories. Your child will want to download their images from the camera onto a computer for editing so a USB cable will be an essential accessory. Most camera kits these days include the USB transfer cable but it is always best to check the contents on the box before leaving the shops. You will also want to purchase a case/bag for the camera to keep it safe when not in use, as well as a lens cleaning kit to ensure your childs camera stays in top top condition.

One additional accessory you may wish to consider is a spare battery pack (or spare rechargeables if your model camera takes disposable AA or AAA batteries). This will allow you to keep one set of batteries charged as a backup while your chid is using the camera, ensuring they never has to miss an opportunity to enjoy their hobby thanks to a flat battery pack!

7:  If you aren’t sure that a brand new camera is the best route to go as your child pursues their interest in photography you can also look at buying a secondhand camera instead. Ask around because many photographers may be willing to sell an older model camera. Be sure to find out about all the camera’s features and any extras that it might come with before making the purchase to ensure that it meets your specific requirements.

Why Your Photographer Loves What They Do http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/why-your-photographer-loves-what-they-do
Why Your Photographer Loves What They Do

If you have ever wondered what spurs on a photographer’s passion, you are about to find out. I have written about this subject before in the blog post "My Why", but below are some more of the many reasons your photographer wouldn’t change their job for anything in the world. 

  1. Photography changes how you see things. You notice colors, textures, flowers, trees, people, shapes and light in a way most people never see them.

  2. You pay more attention to the beauty around you. Even the most mundane object can become beautiful when you photograph it in a creative way. Many photographers love their job because they develop a fascination with the world around them by viewing it through new eyes

  3. It's an amazing creative outlet. You get the chance to put a little bit of who you are into each photo that you take. Anyone can click a camera's buttons but not everyone can truly make a photo come to life

  4. It's a challenge. Creating amazing photos that capture the magic of everyday life doesn’t come without hard work, dedication and imagination. There is always something new to explore and a new way to take the same photos. It’s a job that never gets boring

  5. You get to meet new people all the time. A photographer works with people from all walks of life. Getting to know someone new is a part of the process of bringing someone’s personality through in a photo. It also makes the job a lot more fun!

  6. The flexibility is great. Being a full time photographer means you get to work your own hours. This doesn’t mean it’s a laid back profession though. A photographer is always aiming to perfect their craft, taking on new challenges and helping their clients achieve the perfect pictures.

When you decide to pay for a professional photo session, know that you are hiring an individual who is passionate about what they do and is willing to go the extra mile to help you create beautiful photos that you can treasure forever.

How to Pick the Perfect Professional Photographer http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/how-to-pick-the-perfect-professional-photographer  

How to Pick the Perfect Professional Photographer

 

What you need to consider before you pay that photography deposit.

If you’ve started the search for a photographer then you’ll know just how many options there are. Before you go ahead and book a professional photographer for a shoot though, there are a couple important things to consider.

What style are you looking for?

Photographers have different styles so you need to decide on someone who can help you achieve the end result you are looking for. This applies to everything from wedding and maternity shoots to family and corporate shoots. Research the photographer online for some examples of their latest work to evaluate whether they can cater to your needs.

Research and review.

Before you invest in a professional photographer you need to do your homework. Get online to find a few customer reviews, browse around their website to view their latest work and have a look around their social media pages to find out what others are saying about them. These platforms will also give you a good idea of their personality and style. Some other important points to consider when researching photographers are:

  1. Budget. Do their services fall within your price range?

  2. Expertise. Are they experienced enough to give you the results you are looking for?

  3. Location. Are they based in your area and are they willing to travel to a specific location if need be?

  4. Quality. Is the quality of their photos good enough? Look at aspects such as sharpness, exposure and saturation.

Create a short list.

Once you have done your research, create a short list of professional photographers that stand out for you. Get in touch with each of them to discuss your needs and to ask any questions that you might have. It’s important that you chat with the photographer over the phone, if not in person as this is the best way to get to know them and find out whether you’ll be able to work with them. Feeling uncomfortable or stressed out around your photographer makes for bad photos.


It’s important that you pick a photographer that you have confidence in. Your photos are there to last you a lifetime so while there is nothing wrong with helping out your photographer friend who has just started out, it’s best to choose an experienced photographer for important events and occasions that you can’t relive.

A Brief Guide to Professional Photo Restrictions http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2017/1/a-brief-guide-to-professional-photo-restrictions  

A Brief Guide to Professional Photo Restrictions


Recently there has locally been a bit of debate over photographers rights. I thought i would take some time to help briefly educate the general public on some of the often misunderstood restrictions when it come to professional photography. If you would like to read more about the local issue please click through to the news article HERE.

The photos that a photographer hands over to you are part of their life’s work. It has their name or branding so there are a few important restrictions to note when it comes to the professional digital images that you receive. These restrictions are courtesy of a photographers Moral Rights. Even if you receive a print release or in the case of commercial photography - limited copyright, an artists moral rights protect them from having their work ad subsequently their name and brand tarnished.

1) Copyright. The digital images that your photographer provides you with have a copyright, which means the photographer has the option to use those photos to market their work and services anytime in the future. We are however also respectful of our clients so if there are any images that you would prefer to keep private, it’s best to let us know about it ahead of time so that we can honor your wishes.

2) Image type. We aren’t able to provide you with the original files or raw images. All images given to the client have been cropped and have been edited. If you do require further touch ups we would need to provide you with a quote.  

3) Image altering. While we appreciate your business and welcome the sharing of our photos on social media platforms, we ask that the images not be altered in any way as this is against copyright law and our moral rights. 

What constitutes image altering? 
•    Adding filters or editing photos in Photoshop
•    Removing our logo or studio name
•    Color correcting or including transitions from color to black and white
•    Clipping people or objects out of the original shot
•    Using any portion of the image as part of a separate image

So why do we have this as a restriction? Our photos are a representation of our work so when a customer alters an image it directly impacts our name and brand in the industry. When we present you with final images, they have already been through our editing process and don’t require further alterations.  When images are altered, the results are not always reflective of our original work and can then be mistaken for ours.We are happy to give a quote if you want images to be edited in a specific way or if you want further alterations made. We greatly appreciate your loyalty and cooperation in this matter. 

So there you have it, a very brief summary of some of the restrictions that apply to your purchase and the photographers rights regarding the integrity of their work. Pop us through an email or comment with any questions you might have regarding these things as we are more than happy to discuss it with you!

5 ways to make your session with kids easier http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2016/11/5-ways-to-make-your-session-with-kids-easier


5 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR SESSION WITH KIDS EASIER

If you’re preparing for a photo session with your children, you may be feeling a bit apprehensive. Children aren’t always easy to deal with, which is why the below tips will definitely come in handy before your upcoming photo session.

1. Don't make a huge deal out of it.
If you're stressed out and cranky, your kids will usually pick up on it and act accordingly. Their behaviour will usually be better if you are relaxed and having fun. You may have to make some compromises to keep the peace such as letting your energetic daughter's hair stay straight instead of curling it because she won't sit still. Focus on the big picture and don't sweat the small stuff.  

2. Make it fun.
Let the kids have a couple “fun pictures” where they get to pick their own pose or props. You get to keep the more serious photos while they get to keep their silly photos. This way everyone wins. If you are struggling to get your kids to sit still, turn the photo session into a game. Simon Says usually works like a charm.

3. Be prepared.
If you're going to be out for several hours, ensure that your children are well rested and have had their nap. Bringing some snacks and activities along is also a great idea. If you are having your own photos taken too then you might want to bring a babysitter or family member along to watch the kids. If you happen to be shooting in a remote location, you never know when you might need something like bug spray, tissues or a first aid kit so bring that along too.

4. Be patient.
Save your sanity by trying not to control the photo session too much. Sometimes the best photos come from kids just doing their own thing. Work with your photographer and your photos will look fantastic.

5. Have a chat.
Get your children talking to both you and the photographer about topics such as school or their favourite songs. This allows them to feel more comfortable around your photographer and will also give your photographer a chance to capture a few candid and cute expressions.

Over the last several months i have had the pleasure of photographing this family as it has grown. The changes i have witnessed in the children are absolutely remarkable and really highlight why we need to photograph our children - they grow and change so so quickly! In fact, going over these images today with these down to earth awesome people has made me realise - i need to do this for my own children far more often than i do!

I hope you all enjoy this extended preview of this collection of Maternity, Newborn & Family portraits <3

As i am sure is the case with anyone who has any kind of trade, your own personal projects are always the last to be done.

This is definitely true for me and i don't take nearly enough beautiful images of my own kids. These are some of the ones I did out at my lovely friends property a while back, though they are definitely due for some more!

Enjoy!

AIPP Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2016/5/aipp-queensland-epson-professional-photography-awards This weekend past was a pretty epic one for me.

It was my first year entering the AIPP Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards, and i'm not going to lie - i was more than a little terrified.

As does everyone who enters, i hoped for an award for my work, a couple of images in particular that i had dreamt up and worked really hard on. Unfortunately this year both only *just* missed out on a silver award (Score of 80) as both were scored 78 - which i have been assured is really very good for a first time entrant. I am still really proud of my effort and incredibly grateful to the talented photographers who provided helpful critique on each of my images, for me to keep in mind for my ongoing development as a professional photographer and my QEPPA entries next year. 

Last night my studio pal Aly and i attended the QEPPA awards dinner at the gorgeous High Church in the valley. In a weekend of many firsts, this glamorous function was my first event with other professional photographers, which i am not afraid to admit - left me more than a little star struck. There were so many ridiculously talented photographers in the one room, and the ones whom i was privileged enough to meet were very warm and quite entertaining. I look forward to catching up with them again soon!

In any case, and without further ado - here are my two highest scoring prints for the weekend. I hope you all enjoy them <3

Brooklyn Turns ONE! http://www.ipswichnewbornphotography.com/blog/2016/2/brooklyn-turns-one BROOKLYN TURNS ONE!
Last week Miss Brooklyn came to visit me again in the studio for her first birthday cake smash!

This beautiful little girl has just grown so much in the last 12 months but has kept her soft curls and long eyelashes that she had in her newborn session.

Usually quick with a smile, the poor little love was a wee bit under the weather on the day of her session and wanted to be left in peace to eat her cake.

Have you ever wondered what happens when a 12 month old realises that she cant reach her cake anymore? And of course, eating cake in the bath is just not what proper little ladies like Miss Brooklyn do ;) The last frame here really speaks volumes about what she thought of that idea! Lucky we had Mummy and Nanny on hand to kiss away the tears xx

Happy Birthday Brooklyn! I hope you had a wonderful day with your family and wish you a happy, safe and healthy year!
