What an honor!! We photographers almost NEVER get in the frame, so I know how special it is to get to BE in the photos with the ones you love most! This session was extra special to me, because Firoz is part of a photography mentoring community that I manage, and getting to meet his family was so much fun! Enjoy these fun highlights of their session!

I love capturing new memories in places that mean something to us!! It was a great night! THANK YOU, Lambert family, for spending this evening with me!

And, I'm pretty sure his hair is going to be every bit as beautiful as his sister's!

3 Reasons to Print Your Photos! https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2018/4/3-reasons-to-print-your-photos Kansas city Northland Family Photos It typically goes down something like this:

Child: "Mom! I need a picture of our family to take to school for a project!" or "Mom! I'm Star of the Week and I need a picture of me to put on our board!"

Me: "Ummmmmmmm............"

North Kansas City Northland Family Photographer

I have a confession: I don't print my photos nearly as often as I should. But the reality is that I WANT to get better at this! If you're like me, and feeling a little wistful that you have hundreds and hundreds of photos sitting on your digital devices, but NOT on your walls, take heart. Let me share with you my top 3 reasons why you and I both should be printing our photos.

Reason 1: Our families make the most beautiful and valuable artwork.

I don't think you'd disagree that there is absolutely nothing more meaningful to us than our own families! So, sure, we can spend our time adorning our walls with the latest and greatest from Magnolia Market (because WHY wouldn't we???), but what if we ALSO decorated our walls with artwork that could never be replaced: photos of the people we love most.

North Kansas City Northland Family Photographer

Reason 2: We have the opportunity to create our very own "Memory Lane."

Some of my very favorite memories involve sitting around boxes and boxes of old photographs and taking a trip down memory lane. Maybe it's an afternoon of reminiscing for fun, or maybe it's poring through photographs after a loved one has passed away, looking for pieces of their history and story. Think about it: in a digital world, how exactly will our own kids go down memory lane? Every single day, hard drives fail, computers crash, and phones get replaced. I want to give my kids something tangible to pass down; I want them to have the same experience of revisiting  old memories and reliving history the way that I have loved so much.

North Kansas City Northland Family Photographer

Reason 3: I want to show my kids how loved and valued they are.

What better way to display my love and adoration of my kids than to plaster their faces on my walls! Every time I hang a new photo of my kids or of our family, the response from my kids is the same: pure joy and excitement. They feel special and treasured when we proudly put them on display! I want my kids to know that they matter and that they have a place and purpose in our family and in our home.

North Kansas City Northland Family Photographer

These reasons are certainly more than enough to motivate me to print and display more of my photos! How about you?

As parents, we come to understand in a very tangible way just how quickly time goes. I love the way photos can freeze moments in time for us to hang onto and revisit forever! Booking a family session is the perfect way to document your family and capture these fleeting moments that you can never get back. I would love to be a part of telling your family's story! Contact me here for more info!

The Harlan Family | Family Session in Marian Bear Park, San Diego https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/12/the-harlan-family-family-session-in-marian-bear-park-san-diego By now, you've probably heard me talk about CC Pro Live, a photography workshop I was able to teach at in San Diego. This weekend was jammed packed full of learning, both in the classroom, and out in the field.

We had a couple of families lined up to model for us on shooting day, and got to spend the afternoon with the Harlan family at Marian Bear Park. It was PERFECT! Katie, Mark and Cooper were SUCH great sports and handled having us teach AND having a total of 40+ photographers taking photos of them over the course of a couple hours!

This weekend was jammed packed full of learning, both in the classroom, and out in the field.

The Butcher family was so gracious to model for us for our shooting day, and let me tell you... they were BRAVE! If you think having family photos done is a lot of work, try having 40 photographers photographing you! We went all kinds of paparazzi on this gorgeous family, but really- look at them! Can you blame us??? We had a great morning in San Diego's gorgeous Balboa Park!

Melissa + Jason | a Fun Couple's Session at Torrey Pines, San Diego https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/12/melissa-jason-a-fun-couples-session-at-torrey-pines-san-diego Let me just tell you... getting to photograph your favorite people is AWESOME. While I was in San Diego teaching at CC Pro Live, Melissa asked me to do a quick session for her and her hubby, Jason, and you guys- it was SO fun. Melissa and I actually work together as photography mentors, and we taught alongside one another at the workshop. 

Mel is an AMAZING wedding photographer, so getting to do a session for her was admittedly a teensy bit intimidating, but oh so fun. She is such an inspiring, down to earth, life giving friend, and I was thrilled to spend this time with them! Aren't they adorable?!?

CC Pro Live 2017 | a San Diego Photography Workshop https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/12/cc-pro-live-2017 November was SUCH a cool month around here! I wrapped up my busiest Fall season yet, AND I had the opportunity to teach at CC Pro Live, a photography workshop in San Diego. We had a BLAST! Not only was I able to teach alongside some of my favorite photographers (Melissa McClure Photography, Lauren Nygard Photography, Katelyn James, and Cole Joseph Photography), but we had photographers come in from literally all around the WORLD for this event. 

There is nothing I love more than to share about my passion and see the "lights come on" for other photographers. And this workshop was jammed packed FULL of ah-ha moments both in the classroom and out shooting on location. I can't wait to do it again!! Here are a few of my favorite behind the scenes photos!

**You can see some other sessions I shot while I was in San Diego here and here! And to see some highlights of photos taken of our model families on our shooting day, you can click here and here!

I just love this time of year and getting to photograph families knowing that these sweet moments are so fleeting, and that next year the kids will have grown a little more, and then a little more after that. I'm so thankful that you trusted me to capture this moment in life for you, Ashlee and Adam!!

And as we wrapped up, we decided to take a few shots at home, too. Sweet Eddie had been waiting SO patiently the entire session to take a photo with his beloved fire truck, and man was he proud when the time finally came!! Thanks for a great time, Ingersolls! I can't wait to meet your new addition!!

I was able to travel to San Diego to teach at the CC Pro Live photography workshop (more on this here!), and one of the members of our mentoring group asked me to do a family session for her while I was in town. Meghan is a fantastic photographer in San Diego, and is an all around sassy, sarcastic, witty and hilarious human being. Not only was it fun to meet her in person, but after her session, she and Toby spoiled Jason and I with dinner looking over the water and San Diego skyline too! This night was a huge welcome to SD! Thank you so much for trusting me with your gorgeous family, Meghan! What an honor!!

The Phillips Family | Saint Joseph MO Family Photos https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-phillips-family-saint-joseph-mo-family-photos It was another chilly fall day, but we had some gorgeous sunshine for the Phillips' family session!! I could not believe how much the girls had grown since their session last year!! They were AWESOME in the chilly wind and did amazing for their photos! I just love all of the sweet, snuggly moments we captured! Because let's be real, everyone loves a "Christmas card shot," but the REALLY special moments are the ones that capture the affection families have for each other!

The Springfield Family | Fall Family Photos in St. Joseph, MO https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-springfield-family-fall-family-photos-in-st-joseph-mo Several times this Fall, I have had the opportunity to photograph other photographers, and I'm telling you, it NEVER gets old! What an honor!! We photographers almost NEVER get in the frame, so I know how special it is to get to BE in the photos with the ones you love most!

I had the best time meeting Kylie and her adorable family. The girls were so fun to work with, and even Dad was a champ!! (Maybe because he's been trained by his photographer wife??) Sessions like this make my heart sing... I love what I get to do! And to do it for other photographers is just icing on the cake!! Thanks for such a fun night, Springfield family!

I am so in love with all of the turning leaves here! We moved quick to spare sweet Madelyn from freezing to death, but about mid way through our session, the sun just came glowing in through the trees... It was gorgeous!! Thanks for braving the wind with me, Mary Beth & Jay! I just love these pictures!

The Fiammetta Family | a Fall Photo Session in Saint Joseph MO https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-fiammetta-family-a-fall-photo-session-in-saint-joseph-mo The privilege of photographing other photographers is never lost on me... Nicole & Michael drove all the way from Overland Park to spend the evening with me, and we had such a great time! The girls and I had fun goofing off, planning secret ways to trick mommy & daddy into smiling for the camera, and we even had an impromptu dance party! Now THAT is my kind of session!!! I just loved getting to capture these sweet moments- just them being them. Sessions like that are the best!

Mr. Max was looking SO dapper in his suspenders and bow tie for this session, and not to be outdone, the girls were just as stunning in their gorgeous lace dresses! I loved getting to capture each of the kid's unique personalities during this family session, and even a bit of the chaos that is inevitable with 3 kids under age 6! We had a blast! Thanks for playing, Potters!!!

The Brooks Family | Saint Joseph MO Family Photos https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-brooks-family-saint-joseph-mo-family-photos This session with the Brooks family was a STUNNER! And not only did they show up looking gorgeous, we had such a great time too! I first met Cory when he was kind enough to spend hours late at night putting his awesome dentistry skills to work on my husband's teeth (or ahem, lack there of) after he'd had a pretty rough bike accident. Since then, the Brooks have become friends, and more recently, our neighbors! They are such a great family, and I'm proud to call them  friends. Thanks so much for letting me capture your gorgeous family, Cory & Taylor!

We were watching rain clouds all day and evening, but we ended up nice and dry for their session and had a great time! Hudson and Felicity are just SO sweet to work with, and we had all kinds of fun being silly and playing games! Because who says picture taking has to be boring??? Not me! I just love it when families play together, and I get to capture it!! Thanks Amanda-Fay and Rustin for a great time!

The May Family | Outdoor Fall Family Session in St. Joseph, MO https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-may-family-outdoor-fall-family-session-in-st-joseph-mo This session was a really special one for me! Not only is Jen a photographer herself, she is also part of an online photography education group where I am a mentor. So after interacting with her online for quite some time, I was REALLY excited when she recently moved to Kansas City AND asked me to do family photos for her. I loved getting to capture their entire family, and since she and her husband haven't had any photos taken together since their wedding, we spent some time on just the two of them, too! It was a perfect night. I loved meeting you, Jen! Can't wait to get together to chat photography soon!!

We had to wait out quite a bit of rain for their session, and even relocated for drier ground, but it was well worth it! One of my favorite parts of photographing the Winkelbauers is how sweet Jake and Kate are together. You can just tell how much Kate looks up to her big brother! And Jake is so sweet with her! Liz and Jeremy, you have such a sweet family. Thank you for a great time!!!

We did lots of exploring, collecting of leaves (and chunks of asphalt, because why not?), and even picked a flower or two (or three, or four...). We had a great time!!

It is always so fun for me to see my client's kids grow from year to year. And thankfully, I get to call Megan a friend, and with our kids being the same age, it has been perfect for play dates and summer swim buddies, and I get to hang out with these cool cats even between photo sessions! :) 

You have a gorgeous family, Megan and Matthew! Thank you for spending the evening with me!!!

I absolutely love getting to meet new families and having the honor of documenting moments for them that they can treasure for years and years. The Schoeberls didn't disappoint!

Meet Benjamin | Saint Joseph MO Newborn Photography https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/6/meet-benjamin-saint-joseph-mo-newborn-photography This newborn session was an extra special one! Benjamin was my very first client to be photographed in my brand new studio space! I loved having him and his family with me this week, and just love all of these special photos we were able to capture. I'm always so amazed at how quickly a newborn changes... and capturing their littlest details at their tiniest is so special! Welcome to the world, Benjamin!

The Culp Family | Saint Joseph MO Outdoor Family Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/6/the-culp-family-saint-joseph-mo-outdoor-family-session This family session was amazing! The "beautiful factor" was off the charts for this one.... gorgeous family, gorgeous light, gorgeous outfits... they even had gorgeous hair! But what's more, this family is as beautiful inside as they are out. We had the best time, and I couldn't believe how fast our time together went. This is the stuff dreams are made of, folks! I'm just loving these photos!

Emma | Saint Joseph MO Outdoor Child Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/5/emma-saint-joseph-mo-outdoor-child-session I think every time I get to take photos of Emma, we have more and more fun! I was so glad we waited out the rain for her session, we ended up having the most gorgeous night! 

The bulk of our time together was split between two activities: picking berries ("strawberries" according to Emma, which filled her pockets before the night was over!), and riding on my "magic carpet" (more commonly known to us boring adults as a blanket). Not a bad way to spend an evening if you ask me!! Thanks for a fun night, Emma! I left grinning ear to ear after playing and dancing with you!

The Sickel Family | Saint Joseph MO Outdoor Family Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-sickel-family-saint-joseph-mo-outdoor-family-session This family's session last year was one of my all time favorites, and to be honest, I wasn't sure we could top it. But, then we did! I just fell in love with this gorgeous location, and we had the most perfect weather, too. Top it off with this stunning family, and WOW. What a treat! Thank you for such a gorgeous evening, Samantha & Ryann!! I always love being with your family!

Brylen is ONE! | Saint Joseph MO Outdoor Child Photo Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/5/brylen-is-one-saint-joseph-mo-outdoor-child-photo-session I cannot even believe it's been a whole year since I took this sweet boy's newborn photos! Brylen was the perfect little model for his one year session! He was full of smiles and giggles for us! (And really, who wouldn't laugh at this crazy girl behind a snappy black box with a toy rooster on her head?) 

Happy, happy 1st birthday, Mr. Brylen!! I love watching you grow, and you just light up your mommy & daddy's eyes! It was so fun to play with you!!

Calvin, 5 Days New | Saint Joseph MO Newborn Lifestyle Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/5/calvin-5-days-new-saint-joseph-mo-newborn-photographer Oh what a special treat this day was!! Every newborn is such a miracle, but I'm telling you, when you know how long your friends have prayed and waited for their baby, it makes their arrival just that much more sweet! And handsome Calvin did not disappoint. I just loved getting to spend an afternoon with them to get these photos. They change so very fast in these early days... what a gift we have to be able to stop time in photos! Happy birthday, Calvin! We've all been waiting for you...

The Jones + Gillies + Johnston + Johnson Extended Family Session | Saint Joseph MO Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-jones-johnston-johnson-extended-family-session-saint-joseph-mo-family-photographer This session couldn't have been more fun. These Jones' truly are worth keeping up with! There was a lot of laughing, a lot of crazy squealing, and a fair amount of quick action to get these shots, but I'm telling you it was great fun in the process. I just love this family. You can just see the love and the joy that they have with each other and it radiates.

So this is what happens when you say, "Hey everyone, quick! Imitate Darrell!"

I'd say some of them have him down!!!

The Millers | Saint Joseph, MO Outdoor Family Photo Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/4/the-millers-saint-joseph-mo-outdoor-family-photo-session This session had me smiling the whole time! I just loved that Meika was my little chatting buddy... We had some great chats about pizza, puppies, and very specific ages and names of all of our family members... all the essentials. And Kaia was just a sweet as can be. Her sweet spirit is just so gentle and fun, and I loved watching her tenderness with her sister and mom and dad. But I'd have to say that the best part of the session was when I asked the girls if they could help me get mommy and daddy to smile for their pictures... I asked the girls what we should do if they didn't smile, and without any hesitation, Meika said "CONSEQUENCES!" Hahaha! (Luckily, we didn't have to resort to that... Mommy & Daddy must have heard our plan... they did great!)

Thank you so much for letting me spend these moments capturing your awesome family, James and Andi. I enjoyed it SO very much!

Everett | Saint Joseph, MO Newborn Lifestyle Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/4/everett-saint-joseph-mo-photographer I remember the day I met Everett's mama... While he was still growing strong in his mama's belly, she was busy making a new home in an old farmhouse just outside of town. I had stopped after admiring their property, and (very unlike me) knocked on her door to ask if I might take photos there that week. I'm so grateful I knocked on Lynn's door that day... I had no idea that I would meet such a dear, sweet soul who would become a friend. 

Getting to meet Everett for the first time was just as sweet. He truly is SUCH a beautiful baby! Welcome to the world, sweet Everett! I know you are just so very loved!

Samuel is THREE | Saint Joseph, MO Child Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/3/samuel-is-three-saint-joseph-mo-child-photographer When Mr. Samuel showed up to his photo session as a triceratops, I KNEW we were going to have a blast! He is a huge fan of dinosaurs, and I loved that mom decided to incorporate them into his 3 year old session! What a FUN way to remember this stage... these seasons pass so quickly! 

We had a great time tromping around and even got big brother Solomon in the frame, too. These boys are so sweet! And they sure know how to have a good time!! Happy 3rd Birthday, Samuel!!!!

Rocco is TWO! | Saint Joseph, MO Outdoor Child Photo Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/3/rocco-is-two Ohmygoodness, was Rocco just a BLAST! Rocco just turned two on St. Patrick's Day, and he is such a cutie! I loved how he just chatted away with me right from the get-go. And I am telling you... this boy knows some football! At approximately four times Rocco's height, I thought for sure I had something on him when it came to running... but I was so wrong. This boy is FAST.

I had so much fun with you, Mr. Rocco! Happy, happy Birthday little man!

Emma is turning 3!! | Saint Joseph, MO Child Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/3/emma-is-turning-3-saint-joseph-child-photographer I just had so much fun with Emma for her 3 year pictures! We have been having remarkably warm "winter" weather, and we lucked out and got a nice sunny evening before another round of snow and cold moved in. Emma has a personality to match this warm, glowing sunshine, and we had lots of fun!

Las Vegas Styled & Model Shoot | Saint Joseph, MO Model & Senior Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/2/las-vegas-styled-model-shoot-saint-joseph-mo-model-senior-photographer Last week I got to attend the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) conference in Las Vegas, and it was a total blast! It was amazing getting to learn from some of the best industry leaders, and I was able to meet up with some of the people from an online photography group that I'm a mentor for too! We had such a great time, and there were just so many takeaways that I know will make me a better photographer, mentor and business person. I can't wait to go back next year!

On the first night in Vegas, we teamed up with some girls who had arranged a styled bridal shoot that afternoon, and I invited some of the girls from our mentoring group along to try our hand at night photography with the Vegas lights.

Later in the week, I wanted to take some of the girls from the mentoring group out to work on shooting in full sun, so we hit Red Rock Canyon and did a model shoot for Megan! It was amazing! Not only was Megan a dream to work with, all of us had so much fun together and got some great images while working on building our skill level.

Seri | I AM... Portrait Project https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/2/seri-i-am-portrait-project I was just thrilled to have Seri as part of the I AM... Portrait Project with me! Seri is one of the most kind hearted, humble and sweet girls I have ever met! It's easy to see her outer beauty at first glance, but what I love most about her is the way her inner beauty just radiates.

Seri loves to figure skate (I'm hoping maybe one day she'll give me lessons!!), and her faith as a Jehovah Witness is very important to her. When I asked her what one word she would use to describe herself, she said: "I am loving."  What an amazing trait to have, and when you meet her, you can see it's truth right away!

Thank you so much for being a part of the I AM... Project with me, Seri. I know your mom and dad are SO proud of you!

Alyssa is like a ray of sunshine! She is warm, kind and and has a heart of gold.... Plus that stunning, bright smile! The day turned out to be one of winter's finest: bitterly cold and windy, but we didn't mind. We tucked ourselves away indoors and got some amazing photos!

Dear Mom of a Tween Girl... https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/1/dear-mom-of-a-tween-girl Dear Mom of a “Tween” girl,

This is such a powerful and vulnerable time for your daughter. I can only imagine what it's like for you to watch her as she navigates this pivotal point in her childhood. I remember when I was that age… The growing up, and the trying to answer the question “Who am I?” The pressure to fit in threatening daily to rob me of my own sense of self…

I remember all too clearly the murky waters of that time in life… In fact, that is what prompted me to write to you.

You remember it too, don’t you?

The searching… hoping you had it right… the wistful looks in the mirror, wondering if you fit in, if you were beautiful, if you were enough.

Stop for a minute, and imagine the impact of being able to help your daughter see TODAY that who she is is indeed enough.

The I AM… Portrait Project was created to empower young girls in a season of life where they often feel vulnerable, insecure, and unseen.

Together with your daughter, you will identify a word that describes the best of who she is, and I will capture this trait in a series of honest, real, fine art portraits of her, highlighting her true beauty and giving her a tangible and visual reminder of the very best she has to offer: Herself.

No glam, no fuss.

Just her… As she already is.

I know you already see it in her… NOW is your opportunity to help her see it in herself:

I am beautiful. I am strong. I am unique. Smart. Funny. Fearless. Curious.

I am…… The possibilities are endless.

Don’t wait. Let’s start a movement… a tribe of young girls who look no further than their own reflection to find the identity they are searching for.

Will you join me? Click below to learn more.

Christine + Theron | Saint Joseph, MO Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2017/1/christine-theron-saint-joseph-mo-photographer I just loved getting to do this session for Christine + Theron! I first met Christine at a birthday party a few months ago, and she mentioned she might be needing a photographer soon, because she and her boyfriend were hoping to get married. I was so excited when she called and said "We're married!!!" and that they were ready for some photos as newlyweds. They got married earlier this month by a Justice of the Peace, and we were all excited to get some fun pictures of them as a Just-Married couple! 

Congratulations Christine + Theron!!! I know you will have many, many years of happiness!!!

The Riggert Family | Saint Joseph, MO Fall Family Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/12/the-riggert-family-saint-joseph-mo-fall-family-session This session with Dave and Breann and their boys was SUCH a great way to wrap up the rush of my Fall season! As the brisk breezes of late fall started to move in on us, it was the perfect opportunity for lots of snuggles and the sweet "in-between" moments that I just love to capture. When Breann saw one of her sneak peeks on Facebook, she said "This. Is. So. Us." I'm telling you, nothing makes me happier! That is exactly what I want families to feel when they see their photos! Breann and Dave, I hope you treasure these for many, many years. I hope these photos continue to take you down the path of sweet memories to moments that fly by way too fast!

The Roth Family | Saint Joseph Country Club Family Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/11/the-roth-family-saint-joseph-country-club-family-session It was a fabulous night to hop in a golf cart and ride around the golf course for this family session! I had such a good time with the Roth family, and loved their choice of location. I love when families choose a spot that is a personal favorite. It gives the perfect personal touch to family photos, and will always carry a special meaning and memories! Thank you so much for a fun night, Julie and Blake! You have such a beautiful family!

Thank you so much Tricia and Regan for giving me the chance to capture these awesome moments for your family! I loved every minute!

We had a break in the warm weather, and ended up with a cool, true fall evening! There's just something about the soft light from a cloudy day to give the perfect "fall" feeling to these photos.

How to Capture the Best Halloween Photos of Your Kids https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/10/how-to-capture-the-best-halloween-photos-of-your-kids Halloween is such a fun time to take pictures of our kids! They are all dressed up, excited, and ready for some fun. I love documenting my kid’s fun costume choices each year. It’s fun to look back and remember what they were into at each age. I always make sure I make time for a couple of pictures every Halloween. Besides, the fun nature of dressing up is a great way to capture their true personalities! Here are a few tips to help you take the best photos of your kids this Halloween.

How to take Halloween Photos of Kids

Start Early

The absolute best thing you can do to capture great photos on Halloween is to start early. If you’re in a rush and pressed for time, you will be stressed. And when you’re stressed, the kids are stressed. Give yourself some margin when getting costumes on, and plan to have a few extra minutes to grab some photos before the trick-or-treating begins!

Daylight

If you can, taking photos while you still have daylight will improve your results dramatically! One of the biggest factors in taking great pictures is lighting. And nothing beats the natural light of the sun. We tend to get an early start for trick-or-treating at our house, so the photos of our kids tend to be early in the evening when there is still a nice amount of daylight. But if you start later, you could consider other times for pictures, too: Are the kids wearing their costumes for any other events? A class party? A community trunk-or-treat, or costume parade? If your kids will be wearing their costumes on other days besides Halloween, look for daylight hours to get the photos you want.

Communicate

It’s also a good idea to tell your kids ahead of time that you’ll be taking a few photos before the trick-or-treating starts. Nothing can spark a bad attitude like the excitement of running out the door to gather treats with friends only for mom to side-swipe you with her camera, delaying the fun (ask me how I know). So remove the element of surprise, and let them know the plan ahead of time. You can even offer a reward if they bear with you! Maybe their first treat gets to be one from your own candy bowl once they allow you to take a few pictures!

Let Them Be Silly

Halloween is fun! Let them be goofy, and use this time to showcase the silliness that IS Halloween. Don’t worry about getting the “perfect picture.” They are going to be ready for fun, so use this time to capture their true personalities.

Get the Details

Now that you’ve spent all that time picking out and creating the perfect costume, don’t forget to document it! Whether it’s the face paint or the little accessories, don’t forget to zoom in a little closer and document those fun details.

Print Your Photos!

If there are any photos kids love to look at, it’s photos of themselves all dressed up! By all means, PRINT your photos! Not only will you enjoy going back through it, but your kids will love it, too! So whether you make a whole photo book, or just print off a few 4x6s and throw them in an album, keep those memories where you can see and enjoy them beyond October 31st!

I love when families come together to do a photo session with their parents and their siblings and choose to capture memories together. These are the types of sessions that no one will ever regret investing in. I love knowing that these are moments they will be so glad to have for years down the road. We had a great time laughing, enjoying a beautiful sunset, and even singing some Christmas carols! I had so much fun with this beautiful family and I couldn't be more grateful. I can't wait to do it again!

We had such a gorgeous evening for pictures - truly perfect weather. And Megan is just the most fun, beautiful girl. I loved the personal touch that she brought for her session: mom's wedding earrings, her great-grandmother's suitcase and quilt... She was so full of fun ideas for her session, and her personality just shined. I truly hope she sees just how beautiful she is when she looks at these photos. Her beauty is so much more than that gorgeous face.

Megan, your heart is gold. I am so honored to have captured these for you!

I know Lindsey from a Bible study we are both a part of, and it was so fun to meet her whole family. Violet and Ella were just too cute for words, and I mean come on, LOOK at those boots! This stylish family was so great!!!

Your Next Family Photo Session: What NOT to Worry About https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/your-next-family-photo-session-what-not-to-worry-about If you’re anything like me, your nerves get a little hijacked before having family pictures done. Even for me, a photographer, family pictures can get me a little frazzled if I let them. But I’m here to let you in on a little secret that I hope will help relieve a LOT of your anxiety….

Let’s have an honest chat for a minute. If you were here in my living room, I’d offer you some hot coffee and the coziest spot on my couch to curl your legs up. Lean in, because I really want you to hear this…

It is completely ok if your kids don’t have perfect behavior during your photo session.

THERE. Whew, I said it.

You can LET. IT. GO. Please.

I’m so serious.

As a photographer, one of the things I see getting parents the most stressed out during their photo sessions is the behavior or cooperation of their kids. But I am here to tell you: it is our JOBS as photographers to document your family, and this type of thing is not new to us or unexpected. I know you feel like your kids must be the only ones who aren’t listening, not paying attention to the camera…… but please believe me. This. Is Normal. I know it’s tempting to feel frustrated or embarrassed that your kids may not be doing exactly what you ask, but I will say it again. This. Is. Normal.

You don’t believe me? Here is an outtake from my own family’s recent photo session. I know all the tricks in the bag, my kids know the drill better than anyone, and still… We had THIS:

Photo courtesy of <a href="http://www.simplejoyportraits.com">Simple Joy Portraits</a>.

Feel better? :)

So take a deep breath, and know that it’s all going to be completely ok. If you get stressed, it will naturally trickle down to your kids, and they will feel the pressure of your stress, only compounding the issue. But if you have hired a competent photographer, you can know that they are capturing great moments no matter what the circumstances are.

There ARE some things you can do to set yourself up for success at your next photo session! These tips will help you and your kids to get the best experience and photos.

Tips to Make Your Session a Success:

  1. Let the photographer guide them and give direction. Too many voices and directions from different people can overwhelm kids and make it harder for them to focus.

  2. Let them be little. Let them be silly. This is the best way to let their true personality shine through, and those make the best pictures anyway! Let them get bored, and don’t panic when they do. It’s OK. It really is.

  3. It’s ok to walk away. Sometimes having so many eyes on them makes kids feel nervous and overstimulated. By stepping back and letting your photographer take charge, you can remove some of the pressure for your child to “perform.” It’s not uncommon for me to take a little one to the side and giggle with them and get them relaxed, and then get some great shots.

I know that you have invested a great deal of time (and money!) into your photo session. And I know that they are important to you—These are moments that you will pass down for generations! By removing the pressure of needing “perfect” behavior from your kids, you free them up to be themselves, and that is the best thing you can do! You will end up with photos that reflect who they really are that you will cherish forever!

The Wachtel Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/the-wachtel-family Danielle and John braved this crazy heat for their "fall" photo session, and I'm so glad they did! The boys were perfect charmers, and made for a great time together! I'm not really that funny, but I got these two to laugh and chuckle - they made my day! I truly am so grateful to have such awesome clients who let me capture such sweet stories and moments for them. It makes me SO happy to do what I do!

Kelsey | Saint Joseph, MO Senior Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/senior-session-k-e-l-s-e-y ‚ÄčThere are some sessions that you just don't want to end. Like this one. You're about to see why.

Not only is Kelsey gorgeous, she is so kind and fun. She has such a sweet spirit! I have no doubt that she is going to excel big time after graduation. Kelsey, you're the kind of girl that people WANT to be around. You are going to have so much opportunity to influence and be an encouragement to others, simply because of who you are. 

We started our session at a beautiful farm just outside of town. I knew that Kelsey and her mom had a gorgeous country setting in mind, and had mentioned "maybe even an old barn," so when I drove past this property, I couldn't help but stop and as the owners if we could come back for photos! Out of the kindness of their hearts, they were SO welcoming and gracious (Thank you, Lynn!). I just love the photos we shot there!

Then we made our way to a local vineyard, and, OH. I just love it. It was the perfect setting to wrap up this sweet girl's awesome session! Take a look!

Duncan Family Sunflower Session | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/duncan-family-sunflower-field-session Chanda and Steve were such troopers for our sunset sunflower session! We made our way all the way over to Grinter Farms, and boy was it worth it! Grandpa and Steve carried two rockers all the way up the hill to the back of the field, and I didn't hear them complain once! What gems! We had a great time admiring the sunflower field and enjoying the beautiful flowers. Siri, as expected, was a natural in front of the camera. This girl's beauty just can't be contained. It is always such a pleasure to photograph her. Sadie wasn't as thrilled with the flowers as the rest of us, but she sure made up for it with her infectious smile and spunky personality. When she discovered that she could destroy the destroy the flowers and make us all laugh, she was all into it!

The Graff Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/the-graff-family Fall is in the AIR, folks! And that means Fall sessions are about to be in full swing! Mikala and Travis picked a gorgeous night for our photos. We had a great time visiting a historic neighborhood, and then making our way to one of my favorite open and airy sunset locations. And Miss Nora was a hoot! She stayed entertained by all the friendly dogs who walked by on our outing, and by the end, she was ready to take over as photographer. She was a great helper! :)

The Duncan Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2016/9/duncan-family I'm telling you, there isn't much more that makes my job a dream than a gorgeous location and stunning light. And the super big bonus? I have gorgeous clients!!! I am so in love with this fun session with the Duncan family. Jason and Dyann wanted to capture some photos of the family before their oldest headed off to Nashville for college (and to become a STAR!), and we had a gorgeous night for it. I just love the way their photos turned out, and I love that I got to capture some of their fun, playful side, too!

Photographing Christmas Morning: How to Get in the Frame! https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/12/how-to-photograph-your-christmas-morning-and-be-in-the-photos how to photograph christmas morning

Because my heart for photography started with my desire to document everyday memories, it's no surprise that I LOVE taking Christmas morning photos! But since we have had kids, I have found myself more and more aware of the fact that, most of the time, I am not in the frame with my family. For a while, I felt totally ok with this... Us women are terribly self-critical, and not being in the photos meant not scrutinizing myself IN photos! Win, right?!?

NOT SO FAST.

The more I thought about this, the more I couldn't stop thinking that these photos are not just for me. They are for my children. And their children. I want them to have photos WITH me long after I am gone someday. So when Christmas rolled around two years ago, I began thinking about how I could be in the photos with my family while we enjoyed one of the most special days of the year to us. I was determined to ENJOY the morning instead of fiddling with my camera the whole time. I was thrilled to find a way to document our Christmas morning while being FULLY PRESENT with my family, and was able to be IN the photos and paid virtually no attention to my camera! I would love to share with you how I did it! You won't believe how easy this was!

how to photograph christmas morning

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • A camera that has an interval timer, or one that is compatible with remote shutter release
  • A cheap wireless remote if you do not have an interval timer (like this one for Canon cameras), or an external interval timer (like this one)
  • A tripod, stack of books, or some other (preferable steady) contraption to set your camera on
  • Some comfy PJs
  • A piping hot cup of coffee to help you wake up and look your best in those photos! ;)

how to photograph christmas morning

HOW TO DO IT:

  • PLAN AHEAD. Christmas morning is not the time to get this all set up! Plan to get everything set up and ready to go the night before, so all you have to do is power on as the fun begins on Christmas morning. Your excited children will thank you!!!
  • Find a spot to set up where your camera is out of the way and has a good view of the action!
  • If you are shooting in Manual mode, it's a good idea to close down your aperture more than you normally would. This will give you a reasonable depth of field for all of the movement and activity of the morning. (My images here were shot at f/6.3).
  • Get your focus set. The night before, I got my camera set up and had my husband sit in front of the Christmas tree in the general area where I knew we'd be opening gifts. I set my focus and then switched into Manual Focus so that the focus would stay put.
  • If you have early risers in your house (I raise my coffee to you, fellow mamas of littles!!!), chances are it will be dark when Christmas Morning begins. Don't be afraid to crank up that ISO! If you're comfortable with flash, go that route. Whatever you choose, you want to have good exposure. I knew it would be dark as night when my early risers jumped out of bed, so I actually tested my settings out the morning before.
  • Pick your spot before everyone rushes in (I mean, YOU worked so hard to get this all set up, you deserve to at least have your good side showing in these photos, right?!?)
  • If you have an interval timer, set your timer to take a photo every 30 seconds or so for the duration of the morning, and don't touch that camera again until the mess of the morning is cleaned up! If you're using a remote, keep it nearby and click a photo every so often while all the action is happening. Even when using a remote, the involvement with your camera is so minimal that you can still focus on your family and get some great candid shots of your morning together!
  • Enjoy the photos of your ENTIRE family together on Christmas Morning! It is so much fun to look back at all of the expressions, the mounding pile of wrapping paper that begins to fill the room, Daddy disappearing to find scissors, then again for batteries... And best of all, everyone is there and accounted for in your photos.

This Christmas, I encourage you to GET IN THE FRAME! Be present with your family, and still have wonderful photos to document all of those fun details and moments. You won't regret it! You will treasure these photos for years to come!

The Montgomery Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/11/the-montgomery-family Brandon, Hannah and Amelia are the most adorable little family! I just loved taking these photos! We nearly got rained out, as storms were moving though on either side of this session, but we managed to get an hour in of dry weather, and even got some really fun and dramatic skies to work with! The fall colors were just gorgeous this day, too. I loved everything about this night!

The Garrett Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/11/the-garrett-family A couple of months ago, I was so excited to meet Shannon, especially when I learned that, like us, her family had also just relocated to our area! And THEN I learned she was ALSO a photographer, and I knew right away that we needed to be friends! The two of us decided to do a family session swap, and I couldn't be happier we did so. Shannon is so talented, and I am honored that she asked me to capture her gorgeous family this fall. Here's to a new friendship, plenty more friend and photographer talks over coffee, and many more swapped sessions!

Ian | Saint Joseph, MO Senior Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/11/ians-senior-photos A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking Senior photos for my nephew, Ian. I can hardly believe this guy is a senior already! Wasn't it just yesterday that he was a blond headed, roly-poly, sweet-cheeked baby?!? Now he's a tall, dark and handsome Senior, making plans for studying film at college.

And while we were at it, we just had to get some great family shots of all the Whitsitts! I love this family!

The Cover Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/11/the-cover-family I was thrilled when Kira reached out to me about doing their family photos this fall! The weather has been PERFECT for all of these fall sessions, and their session was no different! We nestled ourselves into a golden wooded park, with plenty of leaf cover already on the ground, and had a beautiful session!

The Smith Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/10/the-smith-family Soon after we moved to Saint Joseph this summer, we met Tiffany, Cory and their two boys in a local (favorite!) pizza place, and learned that our oldest boys would be in the same kindergarten class. It wasn't long before we realized that each of our youngest were also in the same preschool! It was a lot of fun to spend time outside of the school zone with this sweet family, and they were just so EASY to be with!

Summer Fun! https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/10/summer-fun It has been a wild and crazy summer for our family! We moved, Daddy started a new job, the five year old played baseball for the first time, one started kindergarten, one preschool, and another started Grad School. And throw in first ballet class for fun! In all of our "spare time," we've also been doing all kinds of home renovations and projects.... Here and there, I've managed to snap a few pictures of our fun summer!

Groseclose Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/8/groseclose-family You know those friends that feel like family? The ones that know (all of) your junk, and love you anyway?! I just love those kinds of friends. They're a hard find. We are SO grateful for ours.

Aaron and Christa drove all the way from Georgia to see us in our new home this summer, and we are SO grateful they did! After a summer of transition, changes, new schedules, new demands, and new community, we could use some time with old, worn in friends. It was such a breath of fresh air!

I also got to photograph their gorgeous girls while they were here. We took off to a gorgeous field just before sunset, and did our best to beat the mosquitoes! Look at how darling these girls are.

Sarah + Brian: a gorgeous Kansas City wedding https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/8/sarah-brian-a-gorgeous-kansas-city-wedding Do you remember Sarah and Brian's super fun engagement session? We had such a great time sneaking photos in the library, having ice cream, and strolling in the park. I was sure their wedding day would be just as unique and fun, and it did not disappoint!

Sarah and Brian are so joyful, creative and laid back. I had such a great day capturing them! The day started off with a little rain, but that didn't stop them from enjoying every moment. And before we knew it, the day was as full of light and sunshine as the love between the two of them. It was perfect!

Sarah and Brian, you have a truly special love! I am so happy for you as you start this new life together!!!]]>

The Montgomery Family | Saint Joseph, MO Family Photographer https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/8/the-montgomery-family-one-big-happy-family When our family first made the move to Missouri, I was thrilled that Sarah reached out to me about doing family photos at their home during their 4th of July family gathering. The Montgomery family is so special- I was honored to spend the evening with them, putting this moment in time into photographic memories for them!  Sarah and Dave have four sons, four daughters-in-law, and a smattering of adorable grandchildren. The entire family comes "home" from their various lives around the mid-west every fourth of July, and this year, photos were in order, because there had been a new grandbaby since their last photos! Just look at this beautiful bunch!

Sarah & Brian: an adorable engagement session! https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/6/sarah-brian-an-adorable-engagement-session Meet Sarah & Brian. They are just the sweetest. This engagement session was SO MUCH FUN. There is something about taking a session and crafting it around your subjects, just to capture who they are in a unique way. I love it!

Sarah and Brian both love to read, so we started our session at a local library. The librarians LOVED it! And so did we!

After our quiet start, we decided to tackle another one of Brian and Sarah's loves: ICE CREAM. It was a HOT evening, so this was definitely a welcome treat!

Once we were feeling a little refreshed, we headed to the park to catch some gorgeous evening golden light. We did, of course, have to stop for a quick shot in the alley.

What a fantastic evening!  Sarah and Brian, I am so excited for your wedding!!!

O'Brien Family Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/6/obrien-family-session Before our family moved to Missouri, I had the fun opportunity to do a family session for another Chicago area local photographer, Roxanne O'Brien of New Leaf Photography! Roxanne photographed my family one weekend, and I did hers the next. We had so much fun! Roxanne has two handsome and super sweet boys, Mikey and Logan. And her husband, Dave, is a true champ when it comes to photos! You can tell he's married to a photographer! He let me move him, twist him, sit him on the wet ground, without some much as a complaint! We had a fabulous evening at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, one of the places I will miss shooting at the most!

Engstrom Family Lifestyle Session https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/4/engstrom-family-lifestyle-session Meeting the Engstrom family was so much fun! I am so thankful they invited me into their home to capture some of their "everyday" moments! We started with their regular family meeting and some reading, and then moved on to some silliness. The Engstroms just exude joy and laughter! A family who has regular dance parties and jumps on the bed together KNOWS how to have some fun!!!

In the name of authenticity, I thought I'd better share some of the outtakes as well... Because anyone with young children knows that sometimes, THIS is part of reality:

Thank you for letting me join you for the fun, Engstroms! Your family is such a delight!

Welcome, Ethan Isaac https://www.betsydavisphotography.com/blog/2015/2/welcome-ethan-isaac I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this sweet and handsome boy today! Ethan Isaac was born on February 1st, and it was such a joy to capture some of his early moments at home with Mommy, Daddy and big sister Ariella.
