Checking into my photography blog today to share a sneak peek from a recent vintage style studio baby photography session in Lethbridge. I know the momma of this precious baby girl has been waiting oh so patiently to see these, and I don’t want to make her wait any longer!

I just got that vintage wagon toy and I couldn’t be happier about how it worked for this image! (Cute baby also doesn’t hurt).

Also in love with using my new vintage washtub that I picked up a few weeks ago. Baby picture perfection! My personal philosophy when it comes to using props in a photoshoot is that less is more. I LOVE a timeless, classic image and I think that can only be created with minimal props that enhance the image, rather than to steal attention from the true subject of the portrait-the child! Looking through my website galleries you won’t see photos with a ton of props-and that is intentional. I strive to create timeless portrait photographs that won’t look like an out of date trend a few years from now. That being said I am always open to using frilly outfits and diaper covers. I am the mom to three little boys so I always joke about how I only really get to indulge my girly frilly pretty prop side when I have baby girls in my studio.

And for now I will add one more, of the adorable baby Peyton with her big brother. I work hard to make sure I get at least one awesome shot of SIBLINGS TOGETHER because I know as a mom, those are the pictures that just make your heart happy-when you get a great picture of your kids TOGETHER, HAPPY, with genuine expressions!

I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about fall family photos. If you are desiring a fall family photoshoot with me, please book now for best fall color. With the recent cold snap I have a feeling we will lose a lot of leaves (and all the gorgeous color) very quickly here in Southern Alberta so book early to avoid disappointment. Email me through my contact page and let me know when you would like to get your photos done. I have limited availability but keep myself flexible to compensate for bad weather.

I promised I would share a few more from this recent mini family session in Lethbridge, so I’m back today sharing a few more of my favorites.

Family sessions don’t have to be painful! I know a lot of parents worry that it will be too stressful, or that their kids won’t behave, or that their teenagers won’t cooperate. They use these reasons to put off having their family photos done… But I am here to tell them, I know exactly what they’re feeling and I try my best to make the whole process as painless as possible… even, dare I say it… fun!

If you think your family wouldn’t be able to handle a whole photo session, consider a mini.

Contact me for more details!

Thought I would share a sneak peek from a recent family mini session. These parents didn’t want to torture their teenagers with a long photo session, so they hired me for just a short session, focused on family photos only. Working with teenagers is always such a breeze compared to the babies and toddlers I usually work with, so I had fun doing this session. Hopefully they did too!

Here’s one for now, will share more later.

Today I thought I would pop in to the blog to show off a few sneak peeks from a recent family photo session. I love when I get to work with families that I’ve photographed before. It’s so cool to watch my little clients grow up… Last time I photographed these two (6 years ago already), they looked like this…

So cute right???
Well they’re still super cute but much older! (if photos appear a little fuzzy, click on each photo to view it clear and sharp!)

Man those 6 years went by crazy fast! Nothing makes you realize how quickly time goes like watching kids grow up… Makes you realize how important it is to take time to have your family documented in photographs! Even if you can’t book a session with a professional photographer very often, make sure you are taking (and printing!) lots of photos.

I don’t want to give away all of my favorites from this session just yet, but for now, here are a few that I was dying to share.

THIS next one is one of my new favorite family photos I have ever taken. I love it. I love love love family interaction photos… and I hope my clients do as well! I know when it comes to my own family I treasure these types of photos.

As a mom of (3) boys, I may be biased but I think photos of little boys with their mamas are the sweetest thing.

©Jenna Slomp Photography 2016Ok one last one for now, will try to remember to share more favorites later. If you are wanting a family photo session before Christmas, now is the time to book! Hopefully we have a few more weeks before we get any more SNOW!

Cuddly family photos are my favorites!

I was so honored to be asked to photograph this extended family session because I spent a lot of time in this backyard, with this lovely family, when I was a kid. It really doesn’t feel like it was that long ago at all… but in the same way feels like it’s been forever! It’s always cool to see how the people you grew up with, grow up and have families of their own. I couldn’t ask for a nicer family to work with and I really had fun reconnecting with them all.

In typical Lethbridge fashion, we had to deal with gale force winds during this family photo session. But despite the wind blowing everyone’s hair every which way, I am really happy with the photographs from this session. I am almost finished the gallery and I’m excited to show them to the family, but for now, here is a sneak peek of a few that stood out at me… more to come soon!

*just a note, I notice when viewing this blog on a mobile device the photos can sometimes be a bit blurry, if that happens click on the actual photo to see it the way it is supposed to look!

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated the blog, truth be told I was taking some unofficial time off for a bit, and I have to say it feels really good to be doing some photography again! I realized today it’s been almost 11 years since I started this business! I am so thankful that I have so many amazing clients who call me when they add a new baby to their family, so I get to watch them grow and help them capture it too!

One of my most favorite newborn sessions was back in 2011, when I took pictures of these gorgeous newborn twins… (see more from that session here)

Well now these girls have grown up a bit, still just as gorgeous!!!

I really, really struggled in choosing which photos to share in this sneak peek. I don’t want to give away all the best ones, because I want there to be some delightful surprises when mom and dad view their proof gallery… but I also really really want to share so many of them!!! So these will have to do for now.

I LOVE this family photo…

Gavin is as you can see, was a very, very alert newborn! Thankfully we got tons of adorable awake photos because he really didn’t want to sleep for me! But I love that we got so much variety, it’s so fun to have both awake and asleep photos of such a new little guy!

I will share more later. Lots more favorites to come!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday with your families.

I know, it’s been a long time since I updated this blog, and I’m sorry!

This has been such a beautiful fall, I’m sure I am not the only photographer in Lethbridge who has been loving this warm weather, (minus the windy days of course).

Here are a few sneak peeks from a recent fall family photo session. I am so thankful for amazing clients who come back to me as their family grows. I first met this family when the oldest son was just a little guy, I believe he was 4. It’s been a pleasure to watch this family grow and photograph them as they do!

As you may or may not know, I am a dealer for Be Filled frames in Lethbridge. That means you can order gorgeous Be Filled picture frames from me, at a slight discount over buying them direct from Be Filled’s website. I just wanted to let everyone know about the great sale they are having in April, buy one 2 frames, get the third free! This is a great way to affordably design yourself a wall gallery, or stock up for a mother’s day gift! I have all the color samples in my studio, so if you need to take a look, let me know!befilledjennaslomp

 

Just a quick one to share for now, LOVE love love family portraits in the fall! I always wait til the fall to update my own family portraits as well… (NOT that I want to discourage you from getting family pictures done anytime of the year!).

 

I was so excited to work with this family again! Last time they came to see me, big sister Molly was the baby. Her baby session was one of my favorite baby sessions ever, because she was so happy awake, and so adorable asleep. This time Molly brought her brand new baby sister Adeline (17 days old). And just like last time, these two beautiful girls were perfect photoshoot subjects. Here are a few of my favorites from our studio session together (lots to share because it was such a great session!).

If you are expecting and would like to book a newborn session with me, please send me a message as soon as you think of it! Newborns are best photographed at a young age so they stay sleepy and happy :)
