Fall Mini Sessions // Athens, GA

It’s that time of year again!! Time to document the growth your kids/family/pets! You know I always make it painless, so click below to grab the last few spots I have available!

This year I’m shooting at UGA’s Health Sciences Campus on the corner of Prince and Oglethorpe. That part of campus is pretty, versatile and has easy parking! I know everyone wants to know what the background will look like, so I’ve included some photos from a session I shot there last fall!

Chatbooks

chatbooks I love Instagram.  I've been posting iPhone photos of my life, family, and interests to Instagram since 2010.  I love looking back on the images I choose to take, post and write about.  I love seeing my kids grow.  I love remembering the very silly things that they do everyday.  But how often do you scroll through your Instagram feed?  Have you ever scrolled through your Instagram feed?  Will your kids ever see the images you've posted?  I mean, your kids aren't on Instagram or Facebook everyday!  My kids love to see the pictures I take and they love to take pictures themselves.

I know how quickly life passes by and I would hate to lose the digital files of all the images I've snapped on my iPhone over the last 7 years and while I have them "backed-up" to a hard drive and a cloud, that is not the best way for family and friends to see the images as the years go by.

Let me introduce you to Chatbooks!  They are the cutest 6x6 paper photo books!  They have a lot to offer, so check them out, but I have a book subscription of my Instagram feed.  Every 60 images (the maximum size) they print a new book of my Instagram posts/images for me and ship it to me.  I'm up to 53 books!!

If you have a lot of photos on Instagram and can't afford to print 50 books at one time, they have options to print your series slowly (which is what I did). And then, when you're all caught up to present time, they ship you a book every 60 images.  Super awesome!

Product Spotlight: Online Gallery

Hello!  Welcome to another post about products I sell or use! This one is all about the online gallery I use for wedding images.  Each wedding shot by SWP is given 1 YR's access to all of their wedding images via PASS.  PASS is a really awesome way for photographers to share with their images with their bride & grooms.  It is an online gallery, as well as a tool for you to download your images and easily share them with family and friends.  The gallery also gives you the option to create favorites folders that can be shared with me, so that I know what images you'd like in an album.  You (or friends/family) can also order prints directly from your gallery, at really reasonable prices, from a professional lab.  Oh, and another cool feature is that PASS has an app!  You can carry your wedding with you on your phone or iPad to show everyone!

When I'm completely finished culling, editing and blogging your wedding, I will upload your wedding day images into your online gallery via PASS.  Here's a screen shot of what a gallery looks like:

PASS001

It's a lovely Pinterest-style layout and it automatically loads images at the end as you scroll through.  If you'd like to look at an image larger, just click on it:

PASS003

When I upload the images into the gallery, I also separate the images into categories so  that it's easy for someone to find a picture they might be looking for.  Nothing worse than having to sift through hundreds of images to find the one you are looking for!

PASS002

I try to make a folder of my favorite images so that guests can quickly (and easily) see an overview of the day.

Notice the easy to access "Download All" button above?  Just click it and all of the images that are in the gallery will download to your computer (or phone/iPad).  You can also download just images one by one, so if you just want to use an image for your phone screen, you don't have to download them all or add them to your computer and upload just one via iTunes.

I mentioned above that you get 1YR's worth of this gallery -- at the end of your year, you (and I) will get an email from PASS asking if we'd like to renew our gallery for an additional $29 per year.  I won't renew, because I have your wedding images in another, safe, long-term online host, but if you'd like the benefit of using PASS for another year or two, please feel free to pay the additional fee.
