Hey! In case you didn't already know, it is almost Christmas! While I am wrapping up Christmas sessions at the studio, I decided that I should share some of my favorites from this year's holiday photo sessions.
This year was extra fun! I did two totally different set ups for Holiday Mini Sessions. The first set was OUTDOORS! That's right, I did an outdoor holiday set up for the first time ever! I got SUPER lucky with amazing weather! No rain,and it was only a tiny bit cold. Well, if you live in south western PA, you know that 32 degrees is practically summer weather! haha I had a lot of awesome families brave the chilly temps in their winter gear for some fab, holiday photos with this amazing vintage truck.
Everyone had a great time. I loved seeing everyone's best winter fashions. Hats, scarves, earmuffs, and fabulous coats...I saw just about every piece of winter clothing there is for these holiday mini sessions!
I also LOVED the location for these. I was given special permission to use this private property lined with HUGE evergreen trees, and one of my amazing clients allowed me to borrow their vintage truck. I couldn't have asked for a better backdrop for holiday photo sessions! It was a dream come true!
I also designed an indoor holiday set that was the complete opposite vibe of these cozy, casual truck sessions. I have been calling them the RED sessions, because they are just that...RED. I got some inspiration while browsing Instagram one day and decided that I was just going to go for it. I loved the modern and contemporary look of an all red set, and thought to myself, "What could be more perfect for the holidays?".
Right? I was a little shocked myslef when it all came together in such a totally amazing way! I first photographed my son and a friend's kiddos to test out my idea. You can check all of those out, here. Once I shared those photos, all of you seemed to be just as excited for these RED sessions as me! I encouraged styling with black, white, and red formal wear. Let me tell you, you guys did NOT disappoint. I loved getting all of your texts with your wardrobe finds, and I had fun helping with the search too!
Just check out some of these wardrobe combos. These families really killed it! I am in love with each and every on of them.
Another one of my favorite things about these sessions is that I got to partner up with my favorite balloon girl, Kassy of & Many More, again! I love, love, love working with her. She helps bring my visions to life with her amazing and unique balloon arrangements and ideas.
Don't these balloons add the PERFECT touch of festiveness? Festiveness, that's right, I made it a word. I just love how the balloons shine and just really say FUN! Even without the balloons the red set is so fun! I love how everyone just POPS right off of it.
Ummmm...Hello fabulous! Am I right? She is amazing!
I just can't tell you enough how much fun I had photographing your families on the RED set! I LOVED IT! LIKE, SO MUCH! haha Really though, this red set it one of my favorite things that I have done in a while. I loved that you guys all embraced it and loved it too. I can't wait to see all of those fab holiday cards pouring into the mailbox! If you happen to have an extra holiday card, don't forget about me! I would love to see them! You can send them right to the studio: Stacey Louise Photography 314 Loyalhanna School Rd Suite 650 Latrobe, PA 15650
I hope that you are all ready to spread holiday cheer and spend some fun holiday time with the fam. I know that I am totally ready for that. We have some great holiday activities and parties to attend in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to the blog, I will be sure to share a peek into what it looks like at my home for the holidays!
