I Love Photographing Toddlers! {St. Charles Children’s Photographer}

View this post on the new blog: K Thaemert Photography Children’s Photographer

Toddlers are so much fun!  They are cute, silly, witty and they say the most adorable things.  I’ve had the great pleasure of watching this little doll grow up.  The first time I photographed her was at HER newborn session.  She and my daughter, Sarah have a very special bond and I love it when she helps me during sessions.  Many of the adorable expressions you see here are elicited from my favorite studio helper.  First, I’ll share a quick collage of a few favorites from the light purple and white backgrounds.

And here are a few more of my favorites.  (It really was difficult for me to select a “few” favorites).  As is true to tradition, her mom found adorable outfits, shoes, hair accessories and for little brother… an adorable hat!

Thanks for stopping by!  It’s so fun for me to share these favorites.  I really do love my job!  Babies are great, big people are too but toddlers really hold a special place in my heart.  I know that toddler photography is not for everyone.  I think my small stature and fun nature really helps set the tone with these little people.  My teaching background also helps us create a bond.  Bring on those 18months to 5 year olds!!!!

I’m looking forward to seeing these children grow over the next few years.  The Watch Me Grow toddler portrait plan is a great option  for little ones from 18 months through age 5.  After just two sessions you’ve more than paid for the plan.

Thank you for selecting me as your family photographer!  🙂

Another 1 Year Old {Baby Photographer in St. Charles}

Sigh… It’s hard to believe that another of my little baby plan babies has turned one. What’s even more difficult to comprehend is the fact that I photographed big sister throughout her first year and beyond. Time really does fly. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching your own children grow or some one else’s family. I guess that’s why my job is so important. I get to freeze a few moments every couple of months/years and preserve expressions, memories, chunky cheeks (and legs). I am so thankful to be a part of your lives. 🙂

This was a typical 1-year session. We got some formal poses, some informal ones, a few playing, some in the bucket and even a couple with big sis. I just love all the many expressions I got from her. (If memory serves correctly, it was probably my little helper, Sarah, who got all these expressions).

What: Gone Fishin’ Limited Edition set-up one week only

When:  August 22-26

Where: The Studio

Who: Recommended for ages 9 months – age 4

Cost: $69 which includes one 5×7

Call today to schedule your child’s special portrait.

See all of the upcoming Limited Edition and Mini-Sessions by clicking HERE.  You may access that page at any time by clicking on the tab at the top, just above the blog header.

I’ve included a google calendar that lists ONLY Limited Edition and Mini-Sessions.  Some spaces have already been scheduled for the Gone Fishin’ LTD for next month.  Take a look at the calendar (you’ll have to scroll over to August 22 and following) and pick your time slot.  If you want an evening space, those will become available after we receive all the school sports and dance calendars.  At that time, the school-year evening hours schedule will also be set.

What is a Limited Edition or Mini-Session?  For only a few days, we put together and bring out an elaborate set-up which is much more than a typical portrait session.  It takes quite a bit of time and planning to get these sets prepared which is why it is only for a couple of days each year.  Limited Edition sessions last between 30 and 45 minutes.  The last time we did the Gone Fishin’ theme was in 2008 so you won’t want to miss out on this round!

Mini-Sessions are similar in that more props and planning are involved than for that of a regular portrait session, but they are based around a U.S. Holiday and are only 15-25 minutes long.  In addition, since we will only have 10-15 photos from which to choose after a mini-session, you are encouraged to view them before you leave the studio, and place your order at that time.  This expedited the ordering process and allows you to receive your portraits in time for the upcoming holiday!  All orders placed at the time of the mini-session will receive a 20% discount.

These are so much fun and your children will have a great time playing with unique props and set-ups (not to mention all the fun in the costumes and unique clothing).

Call today to schedule your LTD and Mini-sessions.  If it’s on the calendar, it’s not too early to get scheduled!  As of today, we have through February 2012 listed.

Talk to you soon.
