Family Friday| Northern VA Family Photographer

There’s nothing wrong with a Friday posting on Thursday, right? I’ve got to make way for the Momtography 101 details and giveaway tomorrow so I thought I’d go ahead and share what we’ve been up to a day early. We are a two holiday family in our household and have decided to share the magic of both Hanukkah and Christmas with Brielle. The first night of Hanukkah was last night and Brie enjoyed her first festival of lights. She may not remember any of her first holiday season, but we’re hoping to capture a bit of the magic so she can look back and see just how special this time was for all of us.

It’s Coming… | Northern VA Photography Class

Today I am excited to announce the newest addition to Be Young Photography – Momtography 101 Classes! As an elementary technology teacher by day I absolutely adore helping students and teachers better their technology skills. I wanted to be able to do the same thing for moms in the area who are looking to better their photography skills! And so, I’m thrilled to introduce…

The first Momtography 101 workshop is scheduled to take place in late February and I’ll be sharing all the details with you on the blog this FRIDAY December 3rd. I’ll be offering special introductory pricing for the first workshop as well as sponsoring a special giveaway during the month of December. Not sure if Momtography 101 is for you? Here is what you can expect from the class:

Momtography 101 is customized for moms in the Washington Metropolitan area with dslr cameras who want to take better photos of their kiddos. Designed for the busy mom on the go, this 3 hour jumpstart course will give you the basics to get that camera out of AUTO mode and working for you in any situation. You’ll leave Momtography 101 with the necessary tools to successfully document the stories of your life from lazy days at home, to sporting events and extracurriculars, to milestone moments not to be missed. Some of the topics we will cover include:

  • 10 Tips for Taking Better Pictures of Your Kids
  • Introduction to Exposure (why are my pictures from outside so bright and why are there so many shadows on faces?)
  • ISO (why are all my pictures from inside the house so grainy?)
  • Shutter Speed (Wow, my baby is on the move and all of my photos are blurry!)
  • Aperture (how can I take pictures when my kitchen is such a mess?!)
  • Using your Camera’s Basic Settings
  • Basic Lens Overview

You will not want to miss the Friday announcement if this class is something you’re interested in. Check back Friday for the rest of the details and to enter the inaugural Momtography 101 special giveaway!

Mini Accordion Albums| Northern VA Family Photographer

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a new product to share but recently I’ve been updating my product offerings and today I want to share one of my new favorites! These mini accordion albums measure 3″x3″, come in sets of 3 of the same album, and are the perfect size for a pocket or purse. They make GREAT holiday gifts for grandparents, moms, dads, or anyone really! Each mini album is custom designed to fit the uniqueness of your photos.  I am so excited to have these as part of my product line and they will be an offering for my upcoming mini sessions in Port St. Lucie, FL this December (details about the mini sessions will be tomorrow, stay tuned…)

The J. Family Minis | Northern, VA Family Photographer

This weekend I had my Holiday Minis in historic Waterford, VA and they were a blast! However, this session totally rocked my socks off! Long time friend Alexis and her boyfriend Thomas eloped last weekend and wanted to commemorate this new chapter in their lives with a mini session in their wedding attire.  I’ve never done wedding or bridal photos before, so this was certainly a special treat and what a beautiful bride and beautiful family they are! Alexis, her son Alex, and new husband Thomas got plenty of attention during our mini session too, with lots of passers-by stopping to give their congratulations.

Thanks you three for having me do such a special shoot. You radiated with happiness, humor, and love and I had a great time capturing your new beginning together. I hope you enjoy your preview, I absolutely love your images and had quite a tough time choosing my favorites!
