Off-and-on rain was predicted, but it stayed away and we were able to capture some gorgeous portraits for her! The flowers were just starting to bloom, and the colors of their wedding were so perfect with the surroundings! I hope you enjoy some of the highlights of the day!

Haley - Borden High Senior Portraits http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2017/1/haley---borden-high-senior-portraits Today I'm featuring one of my senior girls from this past year, Haley! I photographed her senior session in the fall. It was actually in September, so I was surprised that we we're able to catch a little bit of tree color already. Haley attends Borden High where she plays softball.  She will be furthering her softball career next year when she goes to the University of Southern Indiana! Haley loves to read so I made sure to includ a book themed portrait. 

We started off in Downtown Louisville, where we got a photos at a few of my favorite spots, and then we drove over to Blackacre Farm to finish up. And there we took some sunset photos in the tall grass. But, along the way I remembered a place I liked and she was game to stop at Papa John's Park for a few shots, which ended up being some of my favorites! I think you'll love them too! 

Class of 2017 - It's not too late to book a spring session! Class of 2018 - I'm looking for outgoing dreamers, planners and go-getters who love to have their picture taken to represent "Angie's Angels"! There are many perks that will come for anyone that joins! In addition to your senior session, there will be themed, fashion, and destination group shoots! Message me on IG @AHurstPhotography or via text at 502-550-1743 or fill out the contact form here, http://www.ahurstphotography.com/book-a-session- for more info!!!

New Product! - Senior Lookbook! http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/8/new-product---senior-lookbook I've featured the wonderful thick page, leather bound, albums I offer before. But, I've been thinking I need something more like a magazine for my seniors to show off their photos and have their friends sign.  I'm calling them a 'Lookbook', even though that may not be the technical term for them.  :)  

The sample I made is 12 pages, (24 sides) sized 9" x 6", with 30 photos.  I left room on the edges of a lot of pages for friends to sign and write their well-wishes.  The paper is thicker than a magazine and has a nice matte look to it.  

The Lookbook is a perfect way to show your senior photos! It could even make a great guestbook at your graduation party too!

Prices start at $80 for the first book, additional books are only $65. (they'd make a great gift for grandparents!)

Beautiful Baby A turns 1 in Louisville http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/7/beautiful-baby-a-turns-1-in-louisville Pink and teal were the colors of the day for Baby A's 1 year session!  She was one of the few baby's I've had at that age that wasn't scared of my camera, and was all smiles!  Mom came to me with a couple ideas and we were able to make her visions come to life!  She even shed a few tears when looking at her proofs, and had such a hard time deciding which to get, they ended up purchasing an album with over 40 photos in it! Here are a few of her favorites, some of the ones she had made into prints!

Summer Maternity Session At Cherokee Park -- Louisville, KY Photographer http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/2/summer-maternity-session-at-cherokee-park----louisville-ky-photographer I think a lot of women may opt to save their money for newborn portraits instead of getting their pregnancy portraits taken. But, I love maternity photography! It's such a special time in their lives, and something we all wish we could remember better! I try to encourage expectant moms to just do it! I'm afraid, if they are like me and have a horrible memory, they may regret it later when they don't.  :)

Savannah and I met at Cherokee Park one fairly hot evening this past summer.  We started out at the creek, but on my drive in I had noticed a small patch of tall yellow flowers just a few miles up the road. She was happy to follow me there on our way to the field that we finished up in.  I was so glad we stopped! The flowers perfectly framed her and her husband and this session turned out to be one of my favorite pregnancy sessions of last year!

What A One Year Old Session Looks Like! {Louisville Baby Photographer} http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/2/what-a-one-year-old-session-looks-like-louisville-baby-photographer If you are wondering if you should schedule a photo session when your baby turns one, today's blog post should make you say, 'definetely!' Henry is another of my Baby Plan Graduates, and like all one year-olds, he was busy! I never spend more than an hour with them at this age -- they just don't have the attention span for it. During our hour, I used two different backdrops and added the banner and other props to one of them, so we really had 3 looks.  And that worked perfectly since mom had picked out 3 outfits.  

I try to let them move enough so they don't get frustrated, and I try to give them lots of different things to do - stand, sit on floor, sit in bucket, stand by bucket, sit on this little chair, hold this, hold that, I turn on music and sing, and Dad did a lot, a whole, whole, lot, of picking him up and putting him back on the backdrop.  We all end up sweaty, but how many times will he turn one?  It's so worth it!

Product Spotlight - Custom Designed Albums {Louisville Senior and Newborn Photographer} http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/2/product-spotlight---custom-designed-albums-louisville-senior-and-newborn-photographer I'm trying to find products that I love and would want for myself.  Something I've wanted to make for a while is an album.  I finally designed one last week and I love it so much!  I decided to use this one as my "senior girls" example.  I wish everyone could hold it and feel the quality!  I chose a distressed leather, but I will be offering more than 25 different leathers to choose from.  Or you may prefer a linen cover, or a custom image cover.  So, many options!

I purchased an 8x8 album with thin pages, which are still thick IMO, and a total of 20 sides.  

I didn't know I would enjoy designing it so much! I wanted it to look classic, but thought some cute embellishments, colors and quotes really added to the look that I was going for. 

If you decide an album is for you, I'll custom design it, using any preferred colors and quotes and you will be able to make any adjustments before I send it off to be printed.  

If you'd like to hold it for yourself, so you can see and feel the quality, just ask!  I think every senior needs one, and they would also be a wonderful keepsake to commemorate your baby's first year with photos from every first year session! 

Take a look! Class of 2016, are you in my example album?

Baby Plan Graduate - Baby R - Louisville Baby Photographer http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/1/baby-plan-graduate---babyr---louisville-baby-photographer I met Baby R for the first time at his 6 month session.  He did so good, for about 30 minutes, and then was done! lol! Fortunately, we worked quickly and got some of the best smiles from him! His big blue eyes are just amazing with his dark hair! I have a feeling that combo is going to make the girls swoon in a few years! 

As one of my Baby Plan graduates, I'm going to miss seeing him every few months, but look forward to the bounds he will make between our annual sessions.  Remember, you don't necessarily have to start with a newborn or maternity session...  you can make your plan for 6, 9, and 12 months...  or sitter, walker and 18 months...  it's up to you! Contact me, even if your baby has arrived, and let's make a schedule that works for you!

Bailee - Silver Creek High Senior 2016 http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2016/1/bailee---silver-creek-high-senior-2016 Bailee was one of the first 'class of 2016' seniors I photographed this season.  It was actually a very hot day in July that we took these, but that turned out to be a good thing because we were able to let her get in the creek and splash around a little!

Bailee plays volleyball for the Silver Creek Dragons and I loved the looks she chose for her senior photos!  Solids work very well for photos and she had a nice mixture of brights and neutrals.  I always recommend as accessory or two, (or ten, lol!) and the hat she brought was perfect as we could add it or take it away to change the look. Plus, it gives you something to with your hands!

We started out in downtown Louisville and finished up at Cherokee Park.  Her session lasted about 3 1/2 hours, but I think we could have spent longer, if darkness hadn't come upon us!  

Silver Creek High is one of the schools I'm looking to find a representative for my '2017 team Angie'! If you're interested in earning free prints, contact me for an application!

Baby L's Newborn Session http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2015/10/baby-ls-newborn-session I just finished editing this gorgeous baby girl's newborn session! She came to visit me at my home when she was just 11 days old, and she was so easy to work with!  By coming to me, I can usually do more with them because I have all my props in my office and if I forget something, I just run and grab it; not to mention, I just generally have more available because I don't have to 'pack light'. :)  Starting in January I will even be discounting my newborn sessions if you come to me due to all the prep and hauling that I have to do to have everything I need at a newborn session on-location.

 

This is one of my, if not my very favorite -- and what's funny is I don't normally photograph newborns with their eyes open because many times their eye muscles aren't strong enough and one may wander, or a lot of them scream when I put them down awake.  But, this little gal was calm and focused right on me.  I just love how it turned out!

The White Family - Bowman Field Louisville, KY http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2015/7/up-up-and-away-the-white-family---bowman-field-louisville-ky This was such a fun shoot at Bowman Airfield!  We had rescheduled multiple times due to rain, and even this day it was misting on my way to the location, but fortunately the rain held off and we ended up getting some great photos, with a dramatic feel due to it being overcast! The kids even loved it! And, I happened to have an aviator hat and a toy plane in my prop collection, and they worked perfectly to fit the look and keep the kids busy!  And, I learned a little history while there... Bowman Field is Kentucky's first commercial airport and is the oldest continually operating commercial airfield in North America! Wow! I think these photos almost have that historic, or at least nostalgic, look to them! 

This may be my favorite! I love that she's looking off to see either see someone go, or dream of where she's off to!

Walden School Class of 2015 (Louisville, KY) http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2015/4/walden-school-class-of-2015-louisville-ky I'm so behind on blogging!  I actually shot Hannah's senior photos on a fairly warm (for winter) day back in January.  We had so much fun! We started on the University of Louisville campus and then went downtown to Market Street and finally to the Highlands area.  She brought a friend who helped me get some "real" smiles out of her and I also put her to work holding my flash and/or reflector when needed.  :)  I'm so happy for this class of 2015 graduate and can't wait to see what she does in the future!

Newborn Safety During A Photo Shoot, And In Everyday Life http://www.ahurstphotography.com/blog/2014/12/newborn-safety-during-a-shoot-and-in-everyday-life As a newborn photographer, I take your baby's safety very seriously! Some of the poses you see in my newborn gallery are composites, the baby was never let go of! That's what Photoshop is for! (No, babies can not balance their heads on their hands!) Even, when the baby is let go of briefly, for example, when wrapped and on a fur on the floor, I still have an assistant sitting right next to the baby at all times! I'm very slow and deliberate when wrapping and dressing a baby - probably more than their own parents are. But, I feel I've been entrusted with the most precious possession in this world, so I must take utmost care with it!

In that vein of thought, when I saw this article, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/05/car-seat-safety-holly-wagner_n_6255106.html, I felt the need to share it with not only my new parent clients, but anyone with a little one.  I know, personally, I always buckled my son. But, I also know that I didn't always do it properly.  There where times we would move the car seat from one car to the other and in our hurry, I probably didn't tighten the belt like I should have.  Or, when he was wearing a thick coat, I may have unbuckled that top latch to let him get more comfortable.  I am very fortunate that nothing ever came of my carelessness.  (In my defense, that was almost 25 years ago and we've learned a lot since then.) 

I pray none of my clients, friends and family are ever in an accident...  but that's why they are called accidents, no one expects the worst.  So, please take a few minutes to read one Mom's story and take her advice and "Make sure they (you) understand the importance of getting this right"... "We know that car seats and booster seats are not always as simple as they may seem. In fact, many people are shocked to learn that three out of four car seats in this country are not installed correctly. That’s why raising awareness of this issue is so important. "
