Ferrara Photo Studio | Newborn & Wedding Photography: Blog https://www.ferrarapics.com/blog en-us (C) Nicole Trainor / Ferrara Photo Studio nicole@ferrarapics.com (Ferrara Photo Studio | Newborn & Wedding Photography) Tue, 24 Jul 2018 01:36:00 GMT Tue, 24 Jul 2018 01:36:00 GMT 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!
