Hello and welcome to my new blog! A new website will be coming very soon, but stay tuned here until it's ready. There will be many exciting changes this year and the blog will be the biggest change of all! Christy McKee Photography is now dedicated to engagements and weddings, and I have created a separate business for my family and portrait photography, which is now Little Eloise Portrait Studio. Little Eloise will offer maternity and newborn sessions, family and senior portraits, as well as styled shoots for kids. I will also be offering limited lifestyle sessions for newborns and families. My studio, located in Staunton, VA, can accommodate newborns and young children. The studio is also a great place for cake smash sessions and styled shoots!
I have created a newsletter which all my clients will receive via email, and you can sign up HERE to receive it as well. The newsletter will link you to new blog posts, reveal special discounts, and advertise seasonal, limited edition session dates. On the blog you will find portrait sessions to help inspire you when planning your own session. I will also include helpful tips for preparing for your session. I know many of you take photos of your own family, so I will share tutorials with you to help you take better photos too. I've also decided to add a few party planning posts to the blog. I love to throw a good party, and we have three summer birthday parties every year so I thought I might as well share them!
Little Eloise has a distinct photographic style to share. My images have lots of rich colors, warmth and texture. I also love all things vintage and include vintage props often. Most importantly, I want your session to be fun and meaningful. I don't want parents worrying about their kids sitting still and looking at the camera. Yes, I know you want a few of those shots but I want the focus to be on your family, or the event being photographed. I want to capture the real moments and the feelings that help create lasting memories. I want you to look at a photo five years from now and smile because of "that look" on your child's face. Parents know when their child's smile is not authentic, so let's have fun and create genuine smiles that will last a lifetime.
