I’ve had the privilege of working with many amazing local photographers; all of whom I recommend to friends. This year, we chose Keira Lemonis Photography for our annual family photo session because I just fell in love with her unique and creative style. Our family is colorful, in many ways and I think Keira did a fantastic job of capturing that!
I wanted this year’s photo’s to be different and a departure from the traditional. The location we chose is a little shop on the outskirts of Saratoga called Stitches and Time which handmade furniture, antiques, and all sorts of vintage items. It provided a neat backdrop because we had so much to work with; from barn doors, to furniture, grassy fields, and even a pond. Keira had scouted the location and had the perfect ideas and suggestions as to where we should shoot.
During the Shoot
Keira did an excellent job directing us and suggesting how we should be situated, who should stand where, who should turn left, tilt right, etc. I appreciate this kind of directing because it’s impossible to tell when your bra strap is exposed or your daughter is sitting spread-eagle. (we’ve all had those pictures!) Even the shots when we were all posed, it never seemed stale. Keira encouraged us to always interact with each other, tickle the kids, give a kiss on the cheek; not just stare at the camera. She’s obviously had a lot of experience working with children (and has a daughter of her own) because she understood how flighty and impatient they can be and made it work!
Soooo, here are some of my favorites!
A quick word on our clothes
I know I’ll probably get asked this question, so here goes! Angie’s clothes are all Crewcuts (plus one white Ralph Lauren cardigan), and I purchased it all on ThredUp where I find amazing deals on very gently used kids clothing. Robby’s white shirt is Tommy Hilfiger also purchased on ThredUp and his pants are Gap. My cool green shirt is from Spoken Boutique in Saratoga (love that place!) and my pants are Forever 21.
I would not hesitate to recommend Keira Lemonis Photography to anyone and would be thrilled to be able to work with her again!
