I just love this family!  We have done so many different locations but this was one of my favorites for sure!!  The Iowa State Fair is such a fun place and it is a big part of this families memories, so we decided why not have our session there this year!  Here is just a small sample of what we captured!  I can’t show too much since I’m not sure what the holiday card plan is!

Are you documenting your kids!?  We are growing like crazy in my house and time seems to go faster everyday.  I am taking sessions for summer now and would love to capture your family in photos.  Don’t put it off…life is too short and things can change in the blink of an eye.

 

Are you a homeschool family in need of photos?  Are you tired of the big box boring school photos?!  Did you know you do not have to purchase a thing from them and they will still take your child’s photo and they will still be in the yearbook and class photo?  Well, now you do.

I think that big box company does a great job with yearbooks and ID cards but leave the wall portraits to me!!!  Next weekend and actually any time you would like, I am hosting a school portrait event.  Bring your kiddos to my home and we will do school portraits in a new kind of way!  Natural, fun, easy and genuine.  You will get my professionalism and genuine fun expressions from your kiddos!!!  You will also get an online gallery to view multiple poses and expressions from your child where YOU can pick your favorite images instead of someone else picking the best image.

I am very passionate about these types of images…I want you to have great portraits every year to hang on your walls for you to look back on.  Let’s face it…the ones when I was a kid were horrible…they are not any better now, 20 years later, then they were then.  Give your kids great school images to look back on and enjoy!!!

Only $45 per child for a print package or $60 per child for a digital package, and $175 for a digital package for families with 3 or more kids!

Packages are listed here: http://lynndemarayphotography.com/portfolio/school-details/

“Get our photos while boating?”  That was the response of my girlfriend when I tossed the idea out there.  It was a long shot but I thought, let’s do something you all love to do that the kids will enjoy…because let’s be real kids aren’t real excited about photos.  Well it worked and it worked well!!!  We had about 15 minutes of posed images like I normally do and they we went for a ride and they went fishing!  It was what they loved to do and so they had a blast and they forgot the camera was even there!!!  Enjoy going on a little fishing trip with us!!!

Have you ever seen a photo of your mom pregnant with you?  I can’t say that I have…my parents were newly married and didn’t have much.  They lived in a trailer which was their first home after they got married.  They were in the process of building their first dream home.  I can maybe remember seeing a photo of the trailer…but that may just be something I created in my head to make a photo of it from what they described.  I wish my mom had more images of what their life was like when she was pregnant with me.  What did they like to do?  What did they eat?  Did they watch movies or what shows did they watch?  What did they drive?  What did the inside of that trailer look like?

Have you ever thought about what was happening in that phase of their lives?  What else would you like to know about them?  Was there a nursery?  What did they do to get ready for you?  Was your mom sick or was she feeling better then ever?  If you have older siblings what do they remember from this time?  Do they remember how mom’s tummy got big and round?

Those are the things I would like to know about my mom’s pregnancy and have tangible proof to go with the answers.

My good friend is expecting her fifth baby.  To say she is busy is a huge understatement.  She is SO BUSY I am not sure how she can get enough hours in the day to get it all done.  I am sure you feel that way sometimes.  But somehow, it all gets done before baby comes.  I was very fortunate to get to go to her house for an afternoon to document their life as it is now, before baby number five comes home!

Hopefully in 30 years (2045, WOW) when this new baby is sitting with his or her brothers, sisters, and parents they look at these images and laugh at what everyone was wearing, they see how the house was decorated, and what the hair styles were back in 2015.  At least that is what I do when I look back at the images from when I was a kid.

If you are expecting or know someone that is, please share this with them…think about the future of your kids.  Will they want a bunch of images of you in a field in a pretty dress?  Maybe one or two…but these images they will look and learn so much about the times and what life was like before they arrived.  Email me if you would like more information: lynndemarayphotography@gmail.com
