Ferrara Photo Studio | Pregnancy & Newborn Portrait Artist: Blog https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog en-us (C) Nicole Trainor / Ferrara Photo Studio nicole@ferrarapics.com (Ferrara Photo Studio | Pregnancy & Newborn Portrait Artist) Mon, 16 Mar 2020 07:23:00 GMT Mon, 16 Mar 2020 07:23:00 GMT Baby Reid https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2018/11/baby-reid Being a newborn photographer I see a lot of babies in the studio for their first portraits. When a family prefers an in home session those photos are a different kind of special. In studio - I'm creating portraits. In home - I'm capturing moments. This family will have these moments to remember baby Reid's first week at home forever. With an in home session the photos are lightly edited. Unlike in studio where they're fully retouched. With an in home session you have the option to download any of the photos I created that day. Share with family, decorate your home.. your choice. If you want to purchase anything through me, I offer a special price list. If lifestyle photography isn't your jam.. I'll be eagerly awaiting your arrival to the studio <3

 

Enjoy this in home lifestyle session of baby Reid's first week at home.

Lincoln's In Home Newborn Session https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2018/6/lincolns-in-home-newborn-session I met a wonderful family in 2012. I photographed their daughter Mallory's wedding in Maryland and then the young couple moved to Ohio. Over the years I would see Mallory and her husband Kris when they traveled home for weddings (that they referred me to) and we would catch up for a moment. Right before Mallory's little sister's wedding she shared with me that she was pregnant! I love that I'm normally one of the firsts to know <3
During a blizzard in Ohio baby Lincoln was born. We set up a date for me to travel to them when Lincoln was just under two weeks old. Here are some of the images from my great journey 7 hours away with a SUV full of newborn backgrounds, fabrics, wraps, beds, bowls, buckets, clothing (for baby and mom) and hats! Enjoy this selection of our favorites!

Rob & Gina's Pregnancy Session https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2017/12/rob-ginas-pregnancy-session I was so happy when Gina asked me to photograph her upcoming newborn session for her daughter McKenzie. I first got to meet Gina and Rob when they donated to Olive's heart surgery summer of 2016. The donation went towards a pet photo session. And that's where I got to meet their boxers Jenny and Doug! We all caught back up for Gina's pregnancy session. Braving the unseasonably colder weather we got a great collection of images. Enjoy our favorites below! p.s. McKenzie is here and I get to photograph her this weekend! <3

Dog Safe Birthday Cake & Icing https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2017/3/dogsafecakeandicing
Doggie Safe Birthday Cake Recipe 

When your fur baby is turning one, and you want to celebrate, the cake can be a tough part. I have a 3 pound, sweet as can be, little girl chihuahua, Olive. When researching ideas for her first birthday photo session I knew the cake had to be puppy safe. When she was young she suffered terribly from acid reflux so it was even more important that the ingredients would be agreeable with her special diet. 

Main ingredients: 

Recipe and cooking directions.

Mix the egg, oil, and PB in a bowl. Mix well. Sift flour and baking soda directly into wet mixture. 

Mix flour, baking soda mixture with wet ingredients while adding shredded carrots.

Fold in carrots. I didn't use the full cup. It's your choice how much to add. 

Press mixture into 3 - 4 inch cake pans.

Cook for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. 

Let them cool while you work on the "icing."

I made mashed potatoes for the icing! I used 4 large potatoes. Added 2-3 tbs butter and tiny TINY bit of milk. Add food coloring, if desired! A little goes along way. I set aside 3/4 cup of white mash potatoes. After using my hands to mold the pink MP around the cake I worked with a knife to sculpt the shape. MP is very forgiving. Have fun with it! I used a normal piping bag and frosting tip for the white MP at the bottom. The tiny flowers are sugar cake decoration from Michael's!   

And there it is! So go enjoy this 100% dog & human friendly cake!

First Baby Of The New Year https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2017/1/firstbabyofthenewyear When I'm finishing photographing a newborn (or any session/wedding) I store the images in a folder on my office computer. I access that folder what feels like 100 times in the process of editing images. With this little one, I've come to find myself saying her name out loud simply because I love the way it sounds! It's a pleasure to introduce you to Seraphina. Seraphina was born December 27th. Her parents thought she was going to come on the 26th. But Seraphina preferred the 27th for her birthday! Side note - Daddy is a HUGE superhero fan. Enjoy these lightly themed newborn photos from the studio's first baby to be photographed in 2017!

Austin Maverick | Newborn Session https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2017/1/austin-maverick-newborn-session

This is Austin Maverick! It's not often I get to use my aviator set and background. When Austin's mommy told me she decorated his nursery with airplanes I knew that she'd love this set up! I mostly like to keep colors and props neutral. It helps the photos stay timeless. This family will be able to love these images for decades without them "going out of style."

first birthday cake smash https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2016/2/first-birthday-cake-smash Since opening the Newark studio two years ago, first birthday session have quickly become my favorite session to photograph! Its almost twice the amount of work from any other session (even a newborn session) but I love it! We run around with your 12 month old ball of energy capturing their true personality then bring in the cake! Some 1 year olds dislike the idea of getting the cake on them.. others dive in with giggles and wide eyes! After having a few session at the studio I quickly realized these babies can't go home a mess! So I started doing bubble bath clean up photos at the end of each cake smash! These last photos we take at the cake smash session will be some of your favorites from your child's session, I promise!

Mr. & Mrs. Maczynski https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/9/mr-mrs-maczynski Meet Megan & Mike

  Normally I like to have wedding contracts signed 6-10 months in advance. Megan was so on top of her wedding planning! She found me and we signed almost TWO years before her wedding date.  In the meantime I photographed their engagement session, met with them a few times for appointments and talked with Megan on the phone here and there about details. Once their wedding date approached we were all like old friends! I love when that happens! Megan and Mike held their ceremony at St. Patricks Church in Malvern, Pennsylvania. They celebrated their marriage with a reception at the Desmond Hotel's Ballroom. I couldn't stop smiling all day. The bridesmaids were all so kind, the church was gorgeous and working with the Desmond's staff was a pleasure! Your planning paid off, Megan. Your wedding was perfect. Here are some glimpses into the day... 



Thank you for the wonderful time. I really enjoyed photographing your wedding Mr and Mrs Maczynski!

Pregnancy Milk Bath https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/6/pregnancy-milkbath A milk bath is nourishing to the skin as well as the mind. When Melissa asked me to photograph her second pregnancy I knew I wanted the session to have a natural feel to it. I used a combo of natural and artificial lighting to achieve the light wrap-around effect on the first few photos. Melissa wanted a silhouette so we used her brightest room for that photo. Lastly, we started the bath water, added the powder milk and wild flowers then had a moment of peace and quite while I photographed her and her belly in the master bathroom's tub. This series of photos is exactly what I wanted to create for Melissa and her family. As my sister said, "She'll have these images to cherish for a lifetime"

                                                                                                    Enjoy ♥

sister tea party https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/4/sister-tea-party It's well known I sure do love a tea party! For a few years I hosted tea parties on-location at Bellevue State Park. After lugging props and equipment back and forth I decided it was best to transition the tea parties to in-studio. I took suggestions from social media and I purchased a new background just for studio tea parties! It looks so real! Definitely a great addition that matches the style of my photography perfectly. Studio tea parties are $50 and last about 30 minutes. 

Enjoy these adorable images of this sisters tea party!

New Pregnancy Gown! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/4/new-pregnancy-gown I've been loving capturing pregnancy lately!!! So much so. I've invested in a custom made pregnancy gown! Its a champagne color that's perfect for any skin tone or hair color. I offer this gown in studio only. My favorite product to recommend to mommas to be is my beautiful 10 Photo 5x7 Image Box.

My Best Friend's Baby Shower https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/4/my-best-friends-baby-shower Its sad to say, its not often I get to photograph something for me anymore. Don't get me wrong the occasional family birthday and getting to bring models in for new props and clothing here and there is nice... But, last minute before I ran out the door to decorate for my friend Meredith's baby shower I quickly grabbed a fresh CF card, one light, two lenses and my camera. Here are some of the images from this lovely co-ed baby shower! I can't wait to meet you Mister Luke Andrew Duke!

Which one would you choose? https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/4/making-a-final-decision-is-hard Choosing sizes to display on your walls can be a daunting challenge if not approached the right way! Over the years I've taken note on the most popular combinations along with the most asked for sizes. This helps me make suggestions for future clients that just aren't sure what sizes to purchase. I offer four wall display packages that include those most popular sizes and combinations. If the packages don't fit your specific needs, a la carte ordering is an option too!

WAYS TO SAVE:  #1 At my studio I give 10% off when purchasing 3 or more wall displays. #2 When you buy a wall display 10x10 or larger you receive a complimentary duplicate 8x10 gift print. A $30 value! #3 A wall display purchased 16x20 or larger come with the high resolution digital file FREE! Thats a $125 value!! So is it time to decorate your family room, dining room, kids bedroom, hallway, play room or staircase yet?


Check out these three options I gave the Lubach family. Which one would you choose? 

(2) 11x14 & (1) 20x30 

(4) 12x12 *4th 12x12 not shown


(1) 10x10, (1) 8x10 and (1) 16x20

She was a Princess before she was born Delaware Newborn Photography https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2015/1/she-was-a-princess-before-she-was-born-delaware-newborn-photography A few months back when Addie's Mommy decided to book the Pregnancy and Newborn Package with my studio I was on a binge prop shopping spree. In the wee hours of online scrolling I found an adorable newborn crown! We all agreed it was a must have for Addie's newborn session so I bought it right way! It was a perfect addition to their session and I just happened to have been wanting one!!  I didn't use the crown until this little miss was born! I wanted her to be the first to wear it. :)

She was the perfect little baby. I can't wait to watch you grow little one, but for now stay small and cuddly!

The Keenan Family https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/12/the-keenan-family Since the studio opened, in March, I noticed I didn't get out much this spring and summer.. but then fall hit! Fall is my most favorite season to photograph portraits on location! It's the combination of not being sweaty, my love for boots, and the beautiful colors of autumn that paint my backgrounds! 

Most of the time I have little ones to keep in mind. IE: Making silly noises, running around, jumping up and down. It was nice to switch it up and have a more mature family!

Happy Birthday To This Little Turkey! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/11/happy-birthday-to-this-little-turkey A busy fall means no time to blog.. However today is a special day! Its Thanksgiving! Today also happens to be the first birthday of Amelia! As we reflect on what we're thankful for today I wanted to share a few words..

December 1st marks the 9 month mark of opening my residential studio. Everyday that I hang up the appointment board outside I have the over whelming feeling of gratitude. I'm so thankful for all of the families that invest in small businesses ever year. Especially, my small business. So, Thank you!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy First Birthday, Mia!

The very next day I purchased this new colorful mannequin background!!  I was nervous with her only being two and so tiny.. but the dress fit perfect (with the help of two clamps) and she was fine with the veil! Such a good little girl! The best part of the day was her stepping into her moms high heels.. that shot just gets me! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Little Charlotte's Newborn Session! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/8/little-charlottes-newborn-session Her name is Charlotte AlexandraJust 9 days old. I photographed her mommy and daddy's wedding! I was so happy to have baby Charlotte and big brother Christopher in the studio for her newborn session!

We grabbed a few shots of Christopher alone for his school portrait. He'll be a 2nd grader this year!! Then I set him up with the projector TV in the sales room (right next to the shooting area). I think he was glad to have something to do while us girls played dress up! 

The dusty rose headband and diaper cover Charlotte is wearing is something I recently purchased for the studio! It's adorable. My new favorite color ♥

Sammie is a very detail oriented bride-to-be! When planning her engagement session I had no idea she would take it to this level! As I arrived at Fair Hill Park in Maryland I drove down the dirt road to find helper Kyle and Brian setting up this wonder bed! I added the chandelier and Sammie did all the work with accessories! The idea was to start with romantic poses and end with a grand pillow fight! I loved photographing these two! I can't wait to see Sammie in her wedding dress!!

They're getting married at 2:30pm

Ronnie & Sara's Engagement Session https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/7/ronnie-saras-engagement-session Engagement session on a 93 degree day? Lets jump in a creek!

But first - This is Sara, Ronnie, and their son Grayson! These two are getting married this year on October 4th in Maryland on The Double R Farm. We decided to have a summer time e-session and drove around the Milburn Orchard area. First stop, a local Maryland State Champion Austrian Pine. I'm no tree expert, but the plaque looked official! After stopping at a few unique locations we ended up in a creek fed by a natural spring. How fun!! Even little Grayson got his little feet wet!

This family was a DREAM to photograph and I can't wait until their wedding day!!

Kate & Drew https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/7/kate-drew Every photographer has those few families that they've photographed their children every year since birth, this is one of mine! Kate and Drew are both summer babies so every year around this time we all catch up for their yearly birthday sessions! Last year their parents discovered this little patch of land just like Bombay Hook, but right in the middle of the city!  I absolutely loved photographing there! You'll notice in one of the photos Kate is taking an animal cracker break.. Being an animal cracker lover myself, I couldn't resist the photo op! 
Happy birthday, kiddos! I'll see you after another trip around the sun!!

Devon and Randy's Wedding | Concord Country Club https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/7/devon-and-randys-wedding-concord-country-club When Devon told me she was going for a whimsical birdcage-y look with a blue accent color and hints of a rustic theme.. I was instantly excited to see what she would put together! My two favorite words to hear from a bride to be describing her wedding is 1) Vintage and 2) Rustic! 

Randy and Devon were married at the Concord Country Club on Friday, June 20th. They held their ceremony outdoors then invited guests to cocktails on the patio just off the country club's ballroom. I didn't know this until the day of, but her wedding gown had been inspired by Disney's Bell from Beauty & The Beast! OH! And, you've gotta see these customized superhero capes!!! Their son, Dean, and flower girl, Lola, wore them for the reception introductions! Such a fun touch for the kids and so cute!! 

Thank you for letting me be by your side all day, Devon! An a big thanks to Gretchen for photographing the guys for me before the ceremony!!

I was so excited when Beth asked me to meet with her parents to talk about wedding photography! I knew she was going to be a stunning bride with a picture perfect wedding day!

We started the day off at her parents house only blocks from the church that Beth grew up attending! My second shooter, Gretchen, photographed Nick getting ready for me before we met up at St. James The Apostle. The mass was modern and full of inspiration for a thriving marriage. As requested, after the wedding party photos we photographed some "cheezy golf poses" with just Nick and Beth. Nick is a member at Hartefeld so it made having their wedding reception there that more special!

Holly & Dan's Wedding | Pell Gardens at the Chesapeake Inn, Maryland https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/6/holly-dans-wedding-pell-gardens-at-the-chesapeake-inn-maryland I absolutely love weddings at the Chesapeake Inn! The ballroom is quaint and elegant, with a giant chandelier over the dance floor. The ceiling twinkles with hundreds and hundreds of pin lights recessed in a dome. Most of the time when my couples have their reception at the Chesapeake Inn they are married at the neighboring Pell Gardens. This ceremony location is right in the middle of it all! There's a colorful ice cream shack feet away, docks of yachts, the water glistening with the sun setting light, and the locals come to watch. I absolutely love it there! 

Then I met Dan and Holly for their wedding photography consultation she made it clear there was no other photographer for her wedding day. That's a great feeling. We started at the house Holly grew up in.. then I caught up with the guys at the Shipwatch Inn right down the way from the Pell Gardens. My newest assistant tagged along on this wedding, Thank you for your help Holly Sue! ..Yes, my new assistants name was Holly too! Thank you for checking out their wedding blog post!

Delaware Autism Program Graduation 2014 https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/6/delaware-autism-program-graduation-2014 For the past three years I've been honored to document the graduation of DAP's students! Being the photographer for the Christiana School District's Delaware Autism Program means I get to photograph all the students that are completing the program! Most of the time this happens when the student turns 21. With all the new friends I've made at DAP I've started to do a little work for the Networks School too! Yay!


Here are a couple images from the Delaware Autism Program's Graduation Ceremony.

Chris + Alyssa's Wedding | The Merion Cinnaminson, New Jersey https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/6/chris-alyssas-wedding-the-merion-cinnaminson-new-jersey After meeting with Alyssa a few times I learned quickly she was a passionate spunky bride to be! After all the wedding details were settled we picked a date for her engagement session and thats when I finally got to meet her fiance, Chris! Once I got to know them together as a couple I saw immediately.. He is her calm. She is his light. After our e-session in Philadelphia, I was even more excited to photograph their wedding day!

The day had come.. it was time to get married! With my brides I give them the choice to have me come to the salon or just to the getting ready location. I met up with the girls at Alyssa's parents house and my second shooter, Gretchen, caught up with the guys before the ceremony. We photographed the first look and wedding party formals at a nearby park. The ceremony and reception were held at The Merion in Cinnaminson, New Jersey.

Bailey's 1st B-day Session & Cake Smash! - Newark, DE. Studio https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/5/baileys-1st-b-day-session-cake-smash---newark-de-studio Happy Friday!

Whenever someone mentions first birthday photos, my next sentence is always.. CAKE SMASH! This time I'm pretty sure it was Lauren's suggestion and I'm so happy she came to the studio to bring her ideas to life!! Little Miss Bailey Breeze knows exactly what a camera is and how to shine for the photographer! Makes my job so easy! She did four outfit changes without a fuss! Side note: for her newborn session I think we did 6-7 different outfits/looks... shes a PRO!

We decided to do another cake smash at her 21st bday.. maybe include some bay breezes! Thanks for bringing all your awesome props, Lauren! Can't wait until your next idea :) 


I just bought a Canon Fisheye 8-15 lens... there will be an overflow of wide angle fisheye shots for a few months :)

Brandon & Aubrie - Engagement Session @ Rockwood Park, Wilmington DE. https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/5/brandon-aubrie---engagement-session This is Jacques... Oh and his parents, Aubrie and Brandon!! This pup's mom and dad are getting married 9•26•14 at The Gables at Chadds Ford. I have the honor of photographing their entire day! 

I'm not sure if I was more excited about including Aubrie and Brandon's adorable french bulldog into their engagement session or the color powder fight we were going to have at the end! Its always a great shoot when your clients are game for getting messy!

We started with a simple formal/casual look. Then switched it up to white shirts to do the powder fight. This is a small selection of images from today. I couldn't possibly go to sleep without sharing a few ::insert big happy face here::

Oh NO! What To Wear!?? https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/4/oh-no-what-to-wear I've started to notice a new found love for making things match. Things like; gift wrapping, pillows to accent colors, kitchen rugs to dish towels, or outfits to decor! 

Normally, the very first FAQ I'm asked after I schedule a family session is "What should we wear?" To which I reply; 1) Which room in your home to you want to display these images?  2) What is that rooms accent color? 3) No accent color? Lets pick one! 
I highly recommend introducing your accent color to the color pallet for your clothing! For example: This room..  my inspiration for color coordinating the families outfit would be these blue pillows! 

Look how great this looks! Thanks to thelennoxx.com for the beautiful room view!

30x40 Canvas Wrap

Studio Maternity Session! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/studio-maternity-session Everyday that I don't have to pack my car and travel for a session (which normally included 30-40 minutes in setting up) I feel more relieved with our decision to run my business from our home! For this maternity session we had the plan to do two different looks. One a neutral collection of clothing with jeans for the pant. The other bringing a fun theme look with a sports jersey, a painted belly, and no kids!

This mommy (expecting April 21st) was more than happy to let me stylize her shoot. First we went through the clothes she had at home.. looking for items that we could layer and still follow our color pallet. After checking out her closets we needed just a few items; a jean jacket for her daughter, a white button up for her oldest son, and tan item for her middle son. A quick run to the local strip mall and we found everything! With our looks complete we photographed together a few days later and this is what we did...







Side note... this is my sister and my nephews and niece! Baby [insert name] is a boy!

Domi Cotton-Tail! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/domi-cotton-tail When Dominic's mom signed up for her Little Session she mentioned she wanted an Easter themed background set. When ever doing specialty sets I make sure to still take some neutral photos that would be perfect for wall art! I suggested a Float Wrap. They have a smooth finish and come mounted to a ready-to-hang block to create a natural drop shadow. A great alternative to Canvas Wraps!! Here are some ideas I came up with for displaying our favorite image from our Little Session today!

20 years later... They're Husband and Wife! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/20-years-later-theyre-husband-and-wife LeeAnne and Matt met as children playing in the neighborhood's local park. After years of knowing each other they decided to give dating a try.. well the rest is history. On March 28th 2014 I had the honor of capturing Mr. & Mrs. McGowan's entire wedding day. I covered the girls getting ready, my 2nd shooter, Andrew, photographed the guys getting ready. We met up at Our Lady of Fatima Church around 3:45pm and the reception was at Harrah's of Philadelphia Casino from 7pm-1am. Below are just a handful of images I took that I pulled to show special moments of the day. All the images will be online April 7th!












The only way I get to keep making beautiful images for brides (and grooms) of the tri-state area is if you spread the word! If you know anyone that is recently engaged or looking for a wedding photographer please pass my information along. I'm one decision that they'll never think twice about!

Product Share! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/product-share Since we moved into our new place I've been a little OCD about keeping the new rugs clean and studio furniture unmarked. So far I've had to run for my Tide To Go Pen more than a three times. Every mark it has removed. I had a black line on my NEW gray sofa (to which I've actually returned since then) it had to of come from the moving truck. Two quick dabs a light rub and it was gone! Someone tracked something on my upstairs runner carpet in the hallway.. two dabs a quick rub and GONE! This Tide To Go Pen is going to save me from getting a couple few extra gray hairs! I highly recommend having this little guy in home and on the go!! 



(thank you Google for the image!)

Happy House Warming! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/happy-house-warming Who doesn't love a surprise gift!! Shawn and I received a curious box in the mail a few days ago. To our surprise it was a house warming gift from my bestie, Amanda Wegner! She moved far away years ago to build her life with hubby, Jeremy. It'll remind me of her every time I look at the frames she gifted us! XOXOXOXO!!!!! Hmm, now which photos do we put in them?!!! 


THEN!! THEN!!! I had a very exciting Little Session today! Not one, but TWO Wonder Women. Anytime I get to photograph Molly is a good day!! But most importantly how sweet of their mom, Jill, to bring me a studio/house warming gift!! It matches my decor to a T! Speaking of letters, how perfect is this.... 


 

Here are some photos from today!!! I had to share! 





Thanks for coming by the studio for your Little Session!! I can't wait to design your image box cover!!!

Team Cunningham! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2014/3/team-cunningham Since the first day opening the studio in Newark, DE this place has been packed with Realtors!! This time of year there are a lot of new agents completing education to get out there and start helping families find new homes! These two awesome people are Herb & Lakeisha Cunningham from The Cunningham Team at Keller Williams Realty!

When this husband and wife team came into the studio they needed updated marketing images for their social media, flyers, website etc. Well of course they came to the right place! After a short consultation to figure out their photo needs I started photographing! 15-20 minutes later, we go these great images!!

 

(above) Herb needed a new individual head shot..

(below) Then we decided, since this was a husband and wife team after all, to do a pose that looked a little more like a "family business pose".

I really enjoyed having these two in the studio.. maybe I'll get to photograph the whole family next time!
Happy Selling Team Cunningham!

You can contact Lakeisha or Herb at teamcunningham@kwrealty.com if you're interested in purchasing a home or selling one!

It was my first shoot of 2014 and a cake smash at that! We started with an in home session doing two outfits and the cake smash. Then ended at a local farm! With the warmer temperatures today photos with the farm animals were priceless! I got some great shots of little Liam helping Poppop feed the goats and petting George the Rooster.

[side note: I adore goats and now I'm pretty fond of roosters named George:)]

I can't wait for the whole family to see the images I captured today!

Hello! Snyder Family! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2013/12/hello-snyder-family

This was my last portrait session of 2013! This was also the last portrait sneak peek that I'll be posting on Facebook.. ever.

As of 2014 I'll be posting all online photos or "sneak peeks" directly to our blog site! We're doing this for many MANY reasons, but the number one reason is as an artist my joy comes from seeing the emotion my art brings to the families and brides I photograph. I've gotten away from viewing the images with my clients and in a way I've started to take the fun out of it for me.. that's no good! I live for the "OMG's" and the laughing tears!

As of Spring 2014 Ferrara Photography will have a new home and a new way of doing things.

What will be new? For starters only what you order will be posted online to share with your friends and family. That's great for two reasons 1) only the photos you LOVE will be posted 2) they'll be retouched because you've already ordered them!. Another awesome change you can look forward to is... I'm going to hold your hand the whole way!

A note.. you'll still be able to find wedding day sneak peeks on Facebook. This is just for portraits!

Meet Molly's Little Sister! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2013/8/meet-mollys-little-sister

Working with siblings in the past, I have learned to accommodate the needs of new, older siblings.  It is usual for the older sibling to have mixed emotions towards his or her new sibling.  With hopes of preventing these emotions I addressed Molly first and started a conversation to make her comfortable.  Not long after, she was ready to tell me all about her baby sister and how she was now a BIG sister.  Helping her feel less threatened and more involved with her little sister, Molly "helped" take pictures of her sister with her own camera.  

Fun Fact: "When you learn conflict-resolution skills in the playroom, you then practice them on the playground, and that in turn stays with you. If you’re an older sibling and you have a younger sibling who needs mentoring or is afraid of the dark, you develop nurturing and empathetic skills that you would not otherwise have."

Sexy Light https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2013/8/august-1st-2013  

A Note About The Session:  After talking to Tina about what she wanted from her maternity portrait session we decided that most of her photos would be photographed on a black background under "sexy light." The drama that this lighting can add instantly make the photos more intimate! 

Fun Fact: 
It's surprisingly common for a father-to-be to start gaining weight, getting morning sickness and even feel cramps in his lower abdomen. The condition is known as a sympathetic pregnancy or the Couvade Syndrome, which comes from the french word couvee meaning "to hatch."

Sister Sunflower! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2013/7/kates-third-birthday-portraits

 

Her mom brought along a bouquet of fresh sunflowers to add to a few photos. The were the perfect addition to our portrait session!  The banner that you see in the top left and bottom right images was from this cute little store on the main road to Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware.  This location is my new favorite! I used it for this year's tea parties too!

Kate loves being photographed by Miss Nicole! As of June she has a new baby brother to be photographed with!!  Maybe we can convince mommy and daddy to get into a few shot next time!  Catch you guys next year!!

Fun Fact: Sunflowers first grew in North America more than 1,000 years ago and were an important food for Native Americans. People from other countries like Spain took some back to Europe with them, and now they are grown in many other countries as well

he WILL be a flyers fan! https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2013/7/july-13-2013

When ever I come into someones home for a newborn session I always ask is there anything special you would like to include in the session; family heirloom, special made hat or blanket.. Mom and Dad broke out the Flyers gear and it was clear this was important to them and their family that joined to watch the newborn session.  I don't normally schedule newborns past noon or 2pm, however for this session I arrived for set up at 4:45pm. With my newborn session last 3-4 hours I wasn't finished and packed up until 9pm! Shuwee that was a long evening, but well worth it!

 

Fun Fact: It would be great if your baby were born with the same awake/sleep schedule as the rest of the family, wouldn't it? Lots of babies seem to prefer the nighttime hours for activity, though, and the daytime hours for slumber. If your baby's fussy during the night, it's even harder on you, of course. Read More..

Another "New" Blog? https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog/2012/6/another-new-blog I feel like every other year I start an online journal or blog and after 10-14 months I give up and forget or just don't have time to post to it. I'm by no means a disciplined blogger as I should be.. with that said, here is yet again a New Blog.

I hope that this blog is full of eye catching imagery, thoughtful words, and random thoughts! As I take my next quest into blogosphere I would love for you to join me!

 

Thank you for reading, but mostly thank you for seeing.
