Top 10 Questions My Portrait Clients Ask https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2021/2/top-10-questions-my-portrait-clients-ask q-and-aq-and-a

Top 10 Questions My Portrait Clients Ask

A quick read for anyone looking to hire a portrait photographer in the Boston area

Many of my portrait photography clients ask similar questions when they inquire about a photoshoot. In this blog post, I highlight the most frequently asked questions I receive and the answers.

 

1. How much does a photo session cost?

Professional photography fees vary throughout the country and every photographer sets their own fees for each genre they shoot. Click on the Investment + Booking links above to view my photo service fees for family, high school senior, maternity and engagement photoshoot. Both 30-minute mini sessions and standard 60-minute photoshoots are available. My service and product fees are separate. Photo products are purchased a la Carte with no minimum ordering requirements. In 2021, I introduced three print package options.

 

2. Can you recommend an outdoor location for our portrait session?

Yes! There are so many great places to take pictures outdoors near me. Go here to view Outdoor Locations for Portrait Photoshoots in eastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod. I love when clients share their session location ideas too.

 

3. What is your photography style?

My photography style is a combination of creative modern portraits and lifestyle photography. Some clients hire me to take traditional portraits where everyone is looking at the camera. Others hire me to capture mostly candid shots with a few traditional images mixed in. I enjoy both styles equally! You can explore my portfolio galleries above.

 

4. What is the best time of day for a picture session?

As a rule of thumb, two to three hours after sunrise and before sunset offer the best lighting for outdoor portrait photography. I use the website time and date to plan my session times throughout the year.

 

5. Can I bring my dog to the photoshoot?

Yes! and... maybe? Your dog is welcome to join our session provided that you book a 60-minute photoshoot and the session location allows dogs on their property. Photographing families with dogs naturally requires more time and a 30-minute session is not long enough.

 

6. What happens if there's bad weather on our session day?

Living in New England means living with unpredictable weather. If rain is in the forecast, I will make the call to proceed or reschedule the session 1-2 hours before the start time. No one wants soggy wet feet and clothes while having their pictures taken, so 99% of the time we will reschedule for the next available date. Dark stormy cloud covered days with or without rain produce poor light quality for photography. I often reschedule on those days too.

 

7. How should I dress my family for the pictures?

This is a common question most photographers are asked! Go here to read about:

 

8. When can I expect to see my pictures?

Fully edited images are ready 5-10 days after the photo session. A private online viewing gallery is provided as part of the service fee.

 

9. Do you offer photo retouching? 

Yes, light retouching is part of my editing process. Some retouching examples include, to remove a stray hair, a spot on a shirt etc. I will not edit images to reduce the look of cellulite, make someone appear thinner, remove braces, change clothing colors etc. Acne retouching is available for an additional fee.

 

10. What should I bring with me to the photoshoot? 

I advise my clients to bring any props they want to include in their pictures (ex. a toy, high school senior diploma, a musical instrument etc.). I also recommend bringing a snack, a drink, bug spray and hairspray to tame static hair.

 

Feel free to send me an email if you have additional questions or you would like to learn more about my portrait photography services. If you are ready to schedule a photoshoot, click on the Book a Session button!

Senior Picture Checklist and Timeline https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2021/2/senior-picture-checklist-and-timeline Checklist & Timeline for Senior Pictures 

Helpful Planning Tips to keep you Organized and Camera Ready for your Photoshoot!

CHECKLIST CALENDARCHECKLIST CALENDAR

Senior year is such a busy time, you use a checklist for every fun event. As a senior photographer, I understand the importance of calendar management. In this blog post, I give specific planning tips for creating an optimal timeline and checklist for your senior photoshoot. Number one on the list is hiring your senior photographer. Before you do so, you will need some information from your high school:

  1. What is the deadline for submitting your yearbook photo?
  2. Does your school have specific guidelines for the type of photo you can submit?
    • Some schools require a formal headshot portrait with a solid background while others may allow a casual lifestyle portrait with a nature backdrop. 

  3. What are the image size dimensions and which picture orientation is acceptable (vertical or horizontal). 
  • Your photographer will need to know how to shoot your portraits and what size to edit it down to for you. Check with your high school yearbook committee if you don't know the answers.   

Book your photographer well in advance, so you can be sure to meet your yearbook deadline! Ask your friends and family for recommendations. Google "senior photographers near me", for an easy way to see a list of local photographers in your area. Review several photographer's websites to learn about their services, session pricing and information about the digital collections and print products they offer. Also, be sure to look at their senior gallery to see examples of their pictures and shooting style.  

 

Create Your Timeline

The days leading up to your senior picture session will go by in a blur. Use the following tips to create your own custom checklist and stay organized. You might want to have a plan for what to do the month before, the week and day before as well as the day of your photoshoot.  

 

One Month Before Your Photo Session 

  • Book your photographer.

The sooner you book the better, especially if you need a weekend session. Many senior photographers book months in advance.

  • Book your haircut.

Schedule your haircut appointment for no later than two weeks before your session. The two week cushion will allow your hair to grow out a little.  

  • Book your hair styling appointment.

If you want your hair to be professionally styled for your senior pictures, be sure to book an appointment well in advance.

  • Start planning your outfits.

Shop in your own closet and then think about what you might need to complete an outfit.

  • Start researching senior portrait poses.

Poses should look and feel natural. Look around for examples. Check your photographer's senior gallery, Pinterest, and your friend's senior pictures for inspiration. Your photographer will have lots of ideas and will help guide you.

One Week Before

  • Avoid the sun!

Do not get sunburned or get highly visible tan lines. You will look red or orange in your pictures. 

  • Pick your 3 favorite portrait poses.

Think about your outfits in relationship to the poses you like. Will they work together? For example, squatting in a shorter length dress won't work. Set a reminder in your phone to share your favorite poses with your photographer.

  • Finalize your outfits.

Lay your clothes out on the bed with accessories + shoes and adjust, if needed. Then try them on to make sure they fit properly. Clothes that are too baggy or too tight will make you fidget and distract you.

The Day Before

  • Iron your clothes!

It is nearly impossible to edit wrinkly clothes without compromising the image quality. Arrive to the session as wrinkle-free as possible.

  • Clean your nails.  

Your nails will show in pictures, make sure they look nice. Either keep them bare or add some gloss or a coordinating nail polish. 

  • Wipe down your shoes. 

Shoes will show in wide shot pictures. 

  • Stay properly hydrated. 

Staying hydrated for the best skin. Use some moisturize too.

  • Find directions to the session location.

You don't want to be late! 

  • Get a great night's sleep!

The Day of Your Senior Photoshoot

  • Shave and moisturize.

This one is for both girls and guys.

  • Pack a bag for the photoshoot.

You might consider bringing these with you to the photoshoot:

  • Hairspray and a brush/comb

  • Bug spray

  • Lint brush

  • Face powder, lip gloss

  • Personal props you want to include in the pictures, ex. a musical instrument

  • Eat something.

Don't be hangry! Be sure to eat something just before the session and then brush your teeth after. 

  • Get dressed just before your session.

If you are going to wear makeup, apply it an hour or so before your session to keep it fresh looking.

  • HAVE FUN!

Best Colors for Family Pictures Outside https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2021/1/best-colors-for-family-pictures-outside Best Colors for Family Pictures Outside

Jennifer LaRoche Photography

 

My family portrait photography clients often ask me what they should wear for their photoshoot. Choosing color schemes and coordinating outfits is easy for many clients and a little challenging for others. That is why I am sharing my best advice and general styling tips for choosing the best colors for your family pictures. Consider these questions as you start planning your wardrobe:  

  1. What are the wall colors in your home?
  2. What is your personal color style?
  3. What colors are in season?

 

Your Home Decor Colors

It is a good idea to think about the wall colors in your home as you plan your photoshoot outfits. You will want the colors in your family pictures to coordinate, not clash with your walls. Hallway-CanvasesHallway-Canvases

 

Your Personal Color Style

Selecting a clothing color palette for your family session always comes down to personal preference. Just like with home decor, some people naturally gravitate towards bright, bold colors while others stick with muted or earthy tones.

  • Create a cohesive color story by wearing one color palette. Choose either warmer shades in muted or earthy tones, or cooler shades in jewel tones or brights. 
  • Build your outfits around one main clothing color and then select 1-3 complementary colors.

color-palette-grid-for-outfits-blog-topcolor-palette-grid-for-outfits-blog-top

Neutrals

 

Accent Colors

Neutral colors are a wardrobe staple for many people. Common clothing colors are black, white, ivory, beige, caramel, grey, navy blue and blush pink/nude. Denim is also considered a fashion neutral. This color family can be easily paired with soft palettes, rich and deeper tones and many brights. Some people use neutrals to create a completely monochromatic look while others use them as the foundation piece in their outfit.

 

Accent colors give your outfit a boost! They can be used as the main color(s) in your outfit or as a simple "POP".

 

 

 

 

Photo Tip! If you would like to wear white in your family pictures, add a colorful layering piece on top, like a sweater or scarf. White, black, and dark navy-blue garments worn around your face can create too much contrast and washout a portrait. Consider wearing darker colors on the bottom half of your body instead.

 

Coordinating Colors

This chart shows examples of clothing color combinations that pair well together.

Family Photography Styling Tips

  • Don't wait until the last minute to pick outfits. You'll want everyone to look their best in the photos!

  • Choose a color palette that looks good on everyone in the family.

  • Start styling mom or dad's outfit first. Then dress the rest of the family in coordinating colors or in all neutrals with pops of complimentary accent colors.

  • Any garment that frames your face (a shirt, a sweater etc.) is the most important garment in your outfit. Choose colors that work best with your facial skin tone. 

  • Select clothing that fits well. If they are too baggy or too tight, you will end up continually shifting and tugging.

    • Limit garments with prints. Too many prints can be distracting in pictures.

    • Always avoid large bold graphics, tiny stripes and reflective or shiny clothing.

  • Add accessories to give your clothing texture and to show your style!

  • Lay out everyone's outfit on a bed to see if you like how they look together. This will give you a chance to make adjustments before your session day.

  • Do not forget about your fingernails, make sure they are neatly polished or polish-free. 

  • Iron out all the wrinkles, they are tough to edit without compromising the image.

  • Bring hairspray to calm flyaways.

  • Have a plan for the weather. Will you need sweaters or coats? Will they coordinate with your outfits?

Visit Jennifer LaRoche Photography for information about outdoor nature photo shoots for kids, teens, couples, small and large family groups, maternity, reunion pictures and photography pricing.

 

Seasonal Colors for Family Pictures Outside

Clothing colors that look great in the spring and summer months do not usually look best in the fall and winter and vice versa. Wear in-season colors within your chosen color palette. Also, consider how the colors will look against the outdoor background in your pictures. 

  • For beach pictures, consider softer shades, light denim blues, and neutrals
  • For pictures in the city, consider bright, cooler or deeper shades
  • For fall foliage pictures, earthy tones blended with neutrals or muted tones look nice against vibrant rustic backgrounds

 

Spring & Summer Outfit Color Schemes

All the colors in your crayon box are represented in spring and summer outfit color palettes! Soft pretty pastels, light and airy classic neutrals and juicy, vibrant, punchy summery color shades. There are so many color combinations for your family outfits it is hard to choose. Here are a few classics + some trendy combos for 2021:

SPRING COMBOS SUMMER COMBOS

BLUSH/NUDE + LT. DENIM + DARK PINK

TURQUOISE + RED + WHITE

FRENCH BLUE + MARIGOLD + LT. GREEN

Fall & Winter Outfit Color Schemes

Fall and winter family outfit colors are simply divine! Gorgeous earth tones and autumn berry colors are just some of the possibilities for fall clothing. Winter jewel tones are some of my personal favorites like, amethyst purple, ruby red and sapphire blue.

5 Tips for Hanging Wall Art https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2021/1/5-tips-for-hanging-wall-art Five Tips for Hanging Wall Art

  Simple eye-catching decorating ideas for displaying framed pictures and canvas art prints.

hallway-statementhallway-statement

1. One Big Photo

One exceptionally large family picture will make a bold wall statement in any room!

Living-room-wall-art-clusterLiving-room-wall-art-cluster

2. Hang portraits or artwork in a grid pattern

A grid or checkerboard pattern wall layout is a simple way to showcase a lot of canvas pieces or framed prints. The key to this symmetrical wall display is to feature artwork that is all the same size. Landscape, square and vertical print orientations can all be easily hung in a grid pattern.

You can use this layout to hang a mixed collection of old and new family pictures, black and white and color print combos, groups of photos from a special event like a wedding, religious celebration, family party etc. The display example above features nine prints from a family lifestyle photography session.

Living-room-wall-art-on-shelfLiving-room-wall-art-on-shelf

3. Lean large art pieces

To create a relaxed, casual art display, try leaning a large framed senior portrait, family picture or canvas against a wall. Position it directly on the floor next to a sofa or bed. Then try leaning the same picture on a low shelf or table to see which visual display you like best.  

bench-prints-in-a-row-statementbench-prints-in-a-row-statement

4. Hang pictures in a row or column

Wall art displayed in a horizontal row is aesthetically pleasing to most people. We naturally scan a room or wall from left to right just like we read a book. A row of pictures is easy to view and the simple layout will work above most furniture in your home.

Art displayed in vertical columns can be just as impactful. Do you have a skinny wall to fill? How would a column of pictures look in that space? Try it!

Living-room-wall  cluster display 7 printsLiving-room-wall cluster display 7 prints 5. Create an asymmetrical family photo gallery wall 

There are endless ways to create a classic asymmetrical photo gallery wall display! This example features both vertical and horizontal prints in three different print sizes. 

 

BEST PRACTICES FOR HANGING ARTWORK

  • Before purchasing new art, determine what print size(s) work best for your wall space. Visit my Wall Art Size Guide for helpful information. 
  • Group odd numbers of prints together {3,5,7,9}.
  • Place art so that the center point of the piece or grouping is at or close to eye level.
  • Hang art 3" to 6" apart on all sides.
  • For artwork hung above a sofa or table, the piece or grouping should be approximately 2/3 width of the furniture.
  • For framed prints, match the frame colors within a grouping. Frame styles can be mixed.

What to Wear in Your Pictures

Some graduates go for the casual look of jeans and t-shirt and others go for a more formal look. It is up to you! Cannot decide? Think about the kind of pictures you would like and session location you selected. Consider how you will be able to move in the outfit. Will you be able to sit, squat, jump, lay down and stand easily? If you would like all standing portraits, it will not matter what you wear. Keep in mind that graduation gowns wrinkle very easily. Be sure to iron your gown and keep it hung until you put it on at our session.

Fall Family Fun Mini Photo Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2020/10/fall-family-fun-mini-photo-session Fall Portrait Family of FourFall Portrait Family of FourPosed fall family portrait in nature

Earlier this month, I hosted my annual 30-minute fall family mini photo sessions. The Wayside Inn Grist Mill was buzzing with leaf peepers, photographers and families soaking up the warmish weather and beautiful fall foliage. Luckily, there is plenty of room to enjoy a picnic, nature walk or a portrait session at a social distance. As a portrait photographer, I am always on the lookout for outdoor places to meet my clients. This is one of my top locations for portraits! In addition to the historic grist mill, the property offers several rustic nature backdrops for pictures and that day, the October fall colors were on full display! These are some favorite shots from Erin's family session.

In this corner of the property, the late-afternoon sunlight illuminates the trees and trails along the grass. It creates this beautiful backlight and bokeh (blurry circles) in portraits.

Eddie's Senior Session at Webb Memorial State Park https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2020/10/eddies-senior-session-at-webb-memorial-state-park Webb-Park-Senior-PictureWebb-Park-Senior-Picture I am so glad Eddie's mom suggested Webb Memorial State Park for his senior portrait session! This public recreational area is located in North Weymouth, Massachusetts. It sits on a peninsula that extends almost a 1/2 mile into Hingham Bay and offers scenic views of the Boston skyline, numerous walking trails and lots of fun places to stop for a picnic and portraits. The rustic fall colors made a really nice backdrop for Eddie's pictures.

She reached out to me to book a mini family portrait session during her trip. We picked a date to meet at Cushing Memorial Park and the weather cooperated!

Evan and Michelle recently celebrated the anniversary of their fifth year of dating. As a romantic gift for Michelle, Evan booked a fall photoshoot with me. The plan as she knew it was to have an afternoon couple's portrait session at the Wayside Inn Grist Mill, with Lilah, their black lab puppy. What she didn't know was that Evan planned to propose to her during our photo session! For the first 20+ minutes, we captured pictures with Lilah under the maple trees and by the brook. Just before we moved to the proposal spot, Michelle did a quick outfit change. The timing was perfect. It gave Evan and I a few minutes to review the logistics we had previously discussed on the phone. For their portraits, I was shooting with a 24-70mm lens. Switching from that to my camera with a 70-200mm lens was the first cue. I took four shots and stepped back a little further to give them more privacy. I asked them to hug so I could capture a candid picture and after that, Evan proceeded with his proposal. Here are some of the sweet moments I captured.

Earlier this month, I met Jessica and her mom at the Boston Public Garden, for a late-afternoon senior headshot and lifestyle portrait photoshoot! It was a gorgeous, bright-sunny fall day and we had a blast capturing photos throughout the garden. Jessica is a guitar player and music lover so it was only natural to include her Fender acoustic guitar in some of her senior pictures.

What a fun photoshoot idea. That is exactly what Ed and Donna requested for their early-fall photoshoot. We chose the Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury, MA, to use as the backdrop for their family pictures. What I really like about this property is the ability to easily capture family portraits with both a rustic nature landscape and old stone architecture background. If you haven't been to the Grist Mill, it might be worth checking out! Here are some highlights from their photo session.  Sisters and DogsSisters and DogsThree Girls and Two-Dogs

Scusset Beach Mommy and Me Family Photoshoot https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2020/9/scusset-beach-mommy-and-me-family-photoshoot Scusset Beach State Reservation is a 1.5 mile stretch of soft sand beach, campgrounds and bike paths situated along the Cape Cod Canal. Located in the upper Cape Cod area, it is technically part of Sandwich, MA even though you might find an address that says Sagamore Beach. It is an interesting spot for both portrait and landscape photography. I met Stephany and her adorable three-year-old son last Monday, for a Mommy and Me beach photoshoot. We had a blast creating portraits and capturing candid photos in beach dunes, along the boardwalk and down by the water. Here are some favorites pictures from their photo session.

Verrill Farm Family Sunflower Field Photoshoot https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2020/9/verrill-farm-family-sunflower-field-photoshoot Have you ever been to Verrill Farm's sunflower field? It really is a must see! This was my first photoshoot in their gorgeous field. I met this sweet family of three at the farm, in early September. The late summer weather was perfect for their photo session, and the sunflower field was fully illuminated in afternoon sunlight. We had so much fun wandering through the multiple sunflower patches. The farm grows about fifteen different varieties of sunflowers, ranging in height from 2' to 20' tall. There are countless picture opportunities here. We discovered neat places to sit in the field including a painted mushroom stool and a metal love seat nestled in the flowers. The big red farm tractor with the multi-level sunflower backdrop made for a picture-perfect spot.

Verrill Farm is located at 11 Wheeler Street in Concord, MA. This year, the farm hosted a sunflower event to raise money for Emerson Hospital Pediatrics. They donated 50% of the event proceeds to the hospital. I was so happy to learn that the proceeds from my field usage fee were included in this wonderful charitable program! I cannot wait to visit the field again next year.

FALLFALL

What's better than fall in New England? We are so lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country with spectacular fall foliage! It's the perfect time of the year to update your photos and capture family pictures for holiday cards. During the Fall, I offer traditional and lifestyle mini and regular portrait photo sessions.

 

 Fall Mini Photoshoot vs. a Regular Fall Photoshoot

A mini photoshoot is basically a short photo session. They typically last 30-minutes and are limited to five or less people within a group. Sessions are conducted in one primary location and include a smaller number of edited images to choose from and purchase a la carte.

A regular photoshoot offers more flexibility due to the extra time. Sessions last 60-90 minutes and can include more than five people within the group. Outfit changes and multiple shoot locations are optional during the scheduled time. A larger number of edited images will be available to choose from and purchase a la carte. This is a popular option for engagements, family, maternity and senior pictures.

Coronavirus Safety Practices for Outdoor Portrait Photography Sessions https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2020/5/coronavirus-safety-practices-for-outdoor-portrait-photography-sessions Outdoor Social Distancing Photoshoots

In this blog post, I have highlighted the coronavirus safety practices I have implemented for my photography sessions. 

 

All Photography Sessions will be Conducted Outside

For the foreseeable future, I will photograph families (immediate family only, up to five people), high school seniors, maternity clients and surprise proposals outside only. Together we will choose an outdoor session location that has plenty of space to walk around and keep socially distant from other people. If you'd like to have your session at home, on your front steps and backyard, we can do that!

A few hours before our session, I will take my temperature. I'll ask that you do the same. If there is a question about how anyone in the group is feeling, we will reschedule the session for another day.

When we meet for our session, I will offer you an enthusiastic wave, instead of a normal handshake greeting. I will wear a face covering during the entire session and shoot with long focal length lens, which allows me to naturally stay more than 6' feet away.

 

Contactless Forms & Services

 

Booking and Electronic Payments

A few weeks ago, I introduced the "Book a Session" button below. With a few simple clicks you can book a date, select a specific time and electronically pay for the session. It's quick, secure, contactless and convenient. 

 

Client Contracts 

Pens are no longer needed with my new touch-free contracts. I will email you an online client contract form to fill out and electronically sign at the end.

 

Client Viewing Galleries

As always, your digital images will be available to view and purchase via a private password protected client gallery. You'll be able to conveniently view the photos on a mobile device, a tablet or on a desktop computer.

 

Custom Product Ordering and Delivery

I offer a variety of professionally printed products including; unframed or framed photos, canvas wall art, photo albums etc. for purchase through your client gallery. Your purchases will be shipped directly to you from the photo lab.

Senior Portrait Photographer | Mark's Session at the Winchester Library https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/11/senior-portrait-photographer-marks-session-at-the-winchester-library winchester-town-hall-senior-photo-on-the-stairswinchester-town-hall-senior-photo-on-the-stairsstanding photo of senior on stairs

This is Mark! We met earlier this month at the Winchester Library, to capture his senior portraits and yearbook photo. The day of his session was incredibly cold. I remember looking at my phone just before the we started and it said 32 degrees. Brrr!! Mark did not complain at all during our 60 minute photo shoot....amazing!

I really like the look of back-lit portraits as they often create a soft round bokeh (circles that look like bubbles) in the background.

This is Hayden! He is a super nice kid and was a pleasure to photograph. I have a few tips to help clients feel at ease in front of the camera....I didn't have to use them with Hayden. He just rolled with it like a pro! It's also helpful when your mom is nearby to share a private joke or funny words that bring out your authentic smile.

The Old Harbor Life-Saving Station is a historic maritime rescue station. It was built in Chatham, MA in 1897. The station was operated by the U.S. Live-Saving Service and it's successor the U.S. Coast Guard, until it was decommissioned in July 1944. The building was later obtained by the National Park Service. In 1978, it was moved by barge to Race Point Beach and turned into a museum.

Senior Portrait Photographer | Ryan's Wellesley College Photo Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/10/senior-portrait-photographer-ryans-wellesley-college-photo-session We lucked out with a 78 degree fall day for Ryan's senior portrait photo session at Wellesley College. I have a few favorite spots on campus where I like to capture portraits. One of them is the area right outside Walsh Alumnae Hall. This spot offers both nature and old architecture to use as backdrops.

In these first two shots you'll notice a beautiful blurred backdrop with round bokeh. Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced by the lens, in the out-of-focus parts of an image. It makes the subject pop, in this case Ryan!

 What is Shop Small Business Saturday

and Why is it Important?

"Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday takes place each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. American Express started the shopping event in an effort to boost spending at small businesses during the holiday season and help establishments remain open during the recession." (source, Newsweekly)

Since it's inception, this annual event has helped small businesses across the country thrive and stay vibrant. It strengthens the community by promoting local creative entrepreneurs, new start ups as well as established  businesses. Your locally owned businesses are your best resources in town! Not only will they have the things or services you desire, they also have the people who are ready and eager to help you!

Shop small every day and on Small Business Saturday, November 30th, be sure to give some extra love!

My name is Jennifer LaRoche. I am a Massachusetts based Photographer and Owner of two photography businesses. In 2011, I opened an Etsy shop called: Stamp and Note Photography. Under this name, I sell my nature, seascape and landscape prints and photo greeting cards. My business name came from a simple idea. I provide a forever stamp with every note card order so all you'll need is a pen! I also sell my artwork on this website and at local juried art shows.

A sunflower field backdrop is exactly what Kristina wanted for her senior yearbook photo. Timing is everything when you're planning a nature photo shoot with flowers that only bloom for 14 days! Luckily, Tangerini Farm has three beautiful sunflower fields that bloom every four weeks or so starting in late July. I photographed Kristina's senior session a week after Labor Day, just as their last field began to bloom. This is a snapshot of some of the lovely images we captured for her gallery.

Boston Senior Portrait Photographer | Camryn's Crane Beach Photo Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/9/boston-senior-portrait-photographer-camryns-crane-beach-photo-session September is a great month to capture senior photos on the beach! The crowds are gone and air temperature is usually just about perfect. Camryn's mom suggested Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA, as the location for our portrait session. What a beautiful place! The beach is owned by the Trustees of the Reservations and maintained as a conservation and recreation property. The four mile sandy beachfront has lovely dunes, a forest and hiking trails. We started evening photo session on the long boardwalk that leads to the beach.

Boston Senior Portrait Photographer | Ashley's Sunflower Photo Session at Colby Farm https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/9/boston-senior-portrait-photographer-ashleys-sunflower-photo-session-at-colby-farm colby-farm-senior-portrait-photo-session-newbury-macolby-farm-senior-portrait-photo-session-newbury-maPortraits by Jennifer LaRoche Photography

A few years ago, Ashley and her grandmother took a road trip to see Colby Farm's sunflowers. During that visit, Ashley decided that she wanted a sunflower field backdrop for her senior portraits. I think it's so great that many high schools are allowing seniors to submit creative portraits to use as their yearbook photo. When I was a senior, that wasn't an option. Every student was photographed by the same photographer with the same backdrop. Today, senior portrait photographers can offer their clients a unique photography experience, based upon their personal preferences and style...I love that I can offer a wide variety of outdoor session locations and nature backdrops to my own clients!

I met Ashley and her mom for an early evening / sunset session. We had a great time exploring the farm and capturing photos in the gorgeous sunflower field. These are some of our favorite images from her session.

Sunflower fields have become one of my most favorite spots to photograph clients in nature. The flowers have this magical way of bringing joy to people as soon as you enter the field. Smiles come easy especially when your enjoying the flowers with someone you love! These adorable sisters had so much fun in Colby Farm's beautiful field. We captured so many great shots.....that their mom had a hard time choosing her favorites! These are some of my favorites from their photo shoot.

Standing in the middle of a sunny Sunflower field is an AWESOME experience! Colby Farm has two gorgeous well maintained fields. One rolls along a hill side and the other is set back, beyond their corn field. The farm offers all kinds of produce and flowers, it's a really nice place to visit and enjoy an afternoon. I look forward to Labor Day weekend because it usually means that the sunflowers will be in full bloom, like they were this past Saturday. These are some of my favorite pictures from my photo shoot with this sweet family.

Boston Event Photographer | Tony's Surprise Milestone Birthday Party https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/8/boston-event-photographer-tonys-surprise-milestone-birthday-party Tony's family threw him an awesome surprise 80th birthday party at Angelica's restaurant, in Middleton, MA. He thought he was going there to attend a friends retirement party. Little did he know that his family had been planning a big celebrate for his milestone birthday. Everyone yelled "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" as the party room door opened. He stood there stunned for a moment as he took it all in. His shock quickly turned into pure joy as he was greeted with lots of hugs and kisses.

The family created a festive party environment for all to enjoy! The tables were adorn with handmade photo centerpieces embellished with nautical anchors, as a nod to Tony's time in the service. Gold and teal balloons dressed up every corner of the room. A 12' candy table filled with yummy treats lined the back windows. A monitor with scrolling photos of Tony was set next to a hand-crafted "80 Years Ago in 1939" fun facts poster. In the middle of the room sat a beautifully decorated three tier Red Sox / Puzzle themed birthday cake. His family did an such an amazing job, it all looked so fantastic! As an event photographer / family storyteller, I live for photographing these details.

After lunch, his grandchildren took the dance floor to share another surprise. Tony enjoys doing all kinds of puzzles. With this in mind, they created a clever game. Tony had to call out and arrange his grandchildren in numerical order, by age, from left to right. One by one they lined up and revealed a large puzzle piece that they were holding behind their backs. The final puzzle revealed a cruise ship and on the backside it spelled "A L A S K A or bust". What an awesome gift! Here are some highlights from the party:

Happy Birthday, Tony!

Emma LOVES flowers and wanted them to be the main backdrop for her senior photos. We considered a few spots for the session and decided that the Boston Public Garden would be best. The garden never disappoints! The flower beds were filled with every color of the rainbow including the pink and purple flowers Emma hoped for; zinnas, salvia, petunias, lantanas.......SO many gorgeous blooms.

Cape Cod Photographer | Old Silver Beach Falmouth Family Photo Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2019/8/cape-cod-photographer-old-silver-beach-falmouth-family-photo-session family-of-4-old-silver-beach-photo-piggyback-portrait-family-of-4-old-silver-beach-photo-piggyback-portrait-images by Jennifer LaRoche Photography Old Silver Beach lies on the western shores of Falmouth, Massachusetts on the island of Cape Cod. This soft sand beach offers spectacular picturesque views of Buzzards Bay. When the sunlight hits the water at just the right angle, it creates a shiny shimmering surf. It's a popular beach for summer vacationers including this family. In fact, this mom spent many happy days playing here as a child. Old Silver was a great spot and a natural choice for their family vacation photo session.

The weather on the day of their session was great, sunny and partly cloudy. If you are know anything about New England weather, you know it can change in an instant, and it did. The moment we set foot on the beach it began to rapidly deteriorate. Normally, I would reschedule the session but they were heading home the next day. The fog, wind, drizzle and the dew drops on my camera lens weren't going to stop their family fun!

what's-in-my-camera-bag-jlwhat's-in-my-camera-bag-jl Have you ever wondered what's in a Professional Photographer's camera bag? Well, I'm going to give you a peek into mine! I use Nikon cameras and lenses for most of my photographic work (portraits, events & art). I received my first Nikon camera as a teenager and fell in love with the image quality, colors and tones it produced.  When I started my professional career I decided to stick with the brand that I knew and loved.

  • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 ED VR Lens - This is my go-to-lens for events, weddings, concerts and some portraits. It's a power house, incredibly heavy and super super sharp - that's why I love it so.
  • Tamron 24-70mm f./2.8 VR Lens - This is my second favorite lens for portraits, events + landscape and street art. When I bought this lens, I had every intention of replacing it with the Nikon model someday. Fast forward several years and I'm still using and loving it. I captured this bride and groom shot with this lens. 
  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8 ED Macro Lens - Details, details and even more details...I use it mostly for my close up nature work. It's a fantastic lens that requires patience and practice to really master it's focus sensitivity. 
  • Nikon 85mm f/1.8G Lens - This is my back up portrait lens. I tend to use my 24-70mm or my 70-200mm over this lens because this 85mm lacks vibration reduction. I like knowing that I have VR to help me produce crisp, tack sharp images. 
  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4GLens - This was one of my first lenses. It's lightweight and a great general use lens.

And to carry it all, Camera Bags 

I really should have taken a picture of my  camera bags. A girl can never have enough bags! I use each one for different reasons....

  • Jill-E Bag on Wheels - for portraits etc. so I can schlep more gear than I probably need :-) I love having wheels! 
  • (2) Tamrac waterproof backpacks - for nature and city outings
  • Think Tank Shoot Bag - for events 
  • Kelly Moore fashion bag - for when I want to look like I'm carrying regular handbag. 

 

Are you thinking about buying camera equipment? Here's my best advice:

  1. Do your due diligence! Take time to research the equipment you'll need for type of photography genre(s) you'll be shooting.
  2. Try before you buy, when possible. Find a local or online camera company that rents camera bodies, lenses and more.
  3. Invest in good quality lenses.
  4. Invest in a good quality tripod.
  5. Consider purchasing used gear instead of new gear to save money. Look for reputable companies that offer both used and new gear.

Have you ever heard the term "Hardy New Englander"? Well you are looking one! I photographed Alex on a 37 degree day last month. We were on a mission to capture a variety of images for Alex to choose from, for his high school senior yearbook photo. He handled the cold weather like a true professional! I was amazed by his ability to withstand the cold and hold his poses. Below are some favorite shots from his photo session. 

Winter portrait photography tip! Everyone gets rosy cheeks, a reddish nose and pink finger tips when they're out in the cold for an extended period of time. A little pink/red skin is normal and looks good portraits. However, the cold tends to bring out too much red in the skin. To help reduce it, suggest that your subject wraps a scarf around their face, especially their nose and wear gloves in-between poses. This simple step will reduce your editing time tremendously!

Children are the best teachers! They show us how to find joy in the simple things, like playing by a stream on a brisk autumn day.

About The Wayside Inn Grist Mill

The mill was built under the direction of former property owner Henry Ford, and ground its first "grist" on Thanksgiving day, 1929. It's a water-powered mill, and uses two separate grinding-stones to produce the corn meal and wheat flour that is used in the Longfellow's Wayside Inn's baked goods.

You know it's a good photo shoot when you get the thumbs up from the youngest family member. What a cutie! This family was so easy going and a pleasure to work with and photograph. We had such a great time walking around the Wellesley College campus last Saturday. It was a gorgeous fall day and the vibrant foliage was popping out at every turn. We found some interesting spots to play in the leaves and capture portraits and candid shots. I love love love this time of year, don't you? Take a peek at some favorite images from their gallery.

This family is so sweet! They were so fun to work with...they came prepared to our shoot with toys, books and lots of ideas to make it fun! I love to collaborate with my clients and think of creative ways to capture their story and their moments, the way they would like. This session was more like a lifestyle photo shoot as opposed to a traditional portrait session. We planning it so that there would be more environmental and candid pictures. I think this style of photography works best for young children as it allows them to explore and play. I used my 70-200mm lens during this shoot, which allowed me to be far enough away yet close enough to capture each moment. These are some of my favorite shots from their session.

6 Tips for Your Family Portrait Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2018/10/6-tips-for-your-family-portrait-session 6 Tips for Your

Family Portrait Session


Having a pre-session game plan will help to reduce the stress of preparing for the shoot and enhance your overall experience with your family and photographer. Here are some quick planning tips to consider. 


 

1. Take time to plan out your outfits

Select your outfits a week or a few days before your session. Be sure to steam or iron the clothes and store them all together with the shoes, socks and accessories, if possible. You'll be happy you did on the day of your session! If you get stuck on what to wear, ask your photographer for some tips. For more information, check out my portrait session prep guide for family, high school senior and large group portraits. It talks about clothing colors ideas, style tips and what to bring to your photo session. 


photo-examples-of-fall-portrait-clothing-color-ideasphoto-examples-of-fall-portrait-clothing-color-ideasClothing color ideas for Fall Portraits by Boston Photographer Jennifer LaRoche on the web at:
http://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com

 



 2. Talk with your children about the photo session

Get your kids excited about the shoot! Talk about:

  • where the session will take place
  • who's going to be there
  • and what they will be doing

Talk a little bit about your photographer too, especially if they will be meeting her/him for the first time. Show your kid's old family photos to help them feel more comfortable with the whole experience. These tips are especially important for families with young children and/or shy children.

 



3. Ask everyone to be cheerful participants

Happy moods are contagious. Encourage everyone especially dads and kids, to be open to the experience of being photographed with their family. Have a fun plan in mind for after the shoot too! 

  



4. Think of funny things to get them smiling

Keep a funny word or phrase in mind to use to get everyone smiling and/or laughing! It could be a private joke, a funny line from a movie or tv show or just something goofy you made up. Whatever works, use it!  

 



5. Plan to have some fun!  

Sometimes having a toy or activity to share (like blowing bubbles) helps create opportunities to capture fun candid shots. Share your ideas with your photographer.

 



6. Arrive well rested with a full belly!

What should I Wear for My Portrait Session?

Here are four simple styling tips to consider:

 

1. CHOOSE COMFORT 

Always choose comfortable clothing that you feel good wearing! If you feel uncomfortable, it will show in your facial expressions and posture...and in your portraits. 

 

2. CHOOSE IN-SEASON COLORS 

The decision to color coordinate or match wardrobe colors always comes down to personal preference. The current trend in portrait photography is to color coordinate outfits. Either choice looks great in photos!   

  • Always choose in-season colors. A neutral color palette works year-round. Jewel tones like royal blue, purple, hot pink etc. look fantastic in Fall & Winter. 
  • When color coordinating outfits, choose a complimentary color mix of 2-3 colors + a neutral like denim, khaki or gray. Take a look at the examples above, notice the pops of color among a neutral color pallet and also the contrast of different colors that work well and compliment each other. All look great!
  • Avoid bold graphic patterns as they can be distracting in photos.   

 

3. ACCESSORIZE

Show your personal style! Layering pieces like a cardigan sweater or scarf add texture to your outfit. Add jewelry for extra pizzazz. 

 

4. WEAR SOME MAKE UP

A little mascara and lipstick will enhance your facial features. Tinted moisturizers, foundations and blush help to smooth out skin tones and reduce redness. If you're prone to oily facial spots, consider applying a little powder before the session to reduce the shine. If you're not comfortable wearing makeup - don't wear it. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

BONUS TIP!

When in doubt, lay it out. Gather all of the outfits, accessories and shoes and lay them out on your bed. Take a picture with your phone so you can envision how they will look in your portraits. This step will give you a chance to add, change or omit clothing items as you see fit!

Boston Photographer Booking Large Group Portraits Plus 6 Planning Tips for Your Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2018/7/boston-photographer-booking-large-group-portraits-plus-6-planning-tips-for-your-session   Are you planning a family reunion, milestone birthday, or

a group photo for your business

and need a photographer?

I'm your girl! I am a Boston based portrait and event photographer, available for travel throughout New England. Organizing a large group photo session can be easily done with a little pre-planning. Once you've got everyone on board for the session date, I can help you with the details. Check out my 6 tips below to get started! 

Summer Group PortraitsSummer Group PortraitsFamily portraits available for Boston, MetroWest, eastern Massachusetts including Cape Cod: http://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com

 

Tips to help prepare for your large group photography session

 

 
1. Choose a Contact person for the session

The key to a successful large group session starts with choosing one contact person. This person will be the coordinator of all. They are usually the one that makes the arrangements and makes the session payments for the group. They'll be responsible for all communications with me. In addition, they will be confirming the date and time, updating me on special requirements, emailing the list of "must-have" photos, signing the session contracts, coordinating the group shots and then after the session, spreading the word about when the images are ready to purchase. I will work very closely with this person to help ensure that the session runs smoothly and everybody enjoys their time together.

 


2. Select a Date and Time

Once everyone has committed to a date, select a time of day that works for the little ones in the group, especially the babies and small children that have a routine nap schedule. If they are generally happier in the morning it’s best to book an earlier photo session.

 


3. Choose your Photography style 

Would you like a casual or more of a formal look for your photos? Your wardrobe style and the session location will help drive this decision. Outdoor sessions tend to have a casual feel. However, your wardrobe choice can make the photos feel more formal.  Where do you envision your session to take place? Some popular choices include: the beach, a park, the top of a mountain, a backyard etc. or were you planning to book an inside venue for the celebration instead?  See wardrobe tips under #4 below.

TIP! Before you decide upon the location, consider everyone in the group. Does anyone have a physical limitation that might make getting to a specific spot challenging?

 


4. Create a "must-have" photo list

This list is so important for me! I'll need to know who will be grouped together in the photos. This list will also keep everyone on track and the session time flowing properly.  As an example, if I'm photographing a family from three generations, your must-have photo list may look like this:

  1. Group photo of everyone
  2. Group photo of grandchildren and grandparents
  3. Grandparents on their own
  4. All grandchildren together
  5. Each individual family, etc.

Once the must-have photos are captured, there may be time for candid shots. Each family session is unique. The photos we capture will be a cherished keepsake for everyone. 

 


5. Plan the wardrobe

What to wear is always a big question for every portrait photographer. In the first photo example above, the family is wearing a coordinating color palette of yellow, grey and turquoise. In the second photo, the family is wearing a mix of colors. The decision to coordinate or not to coordinate always comes down to personal preference.

TIP! If you want to coordinate your attire, pick one color palette with 3-4 in season coordinating colors. Here are some examples: 

  • black and white with a pop of color like red, hot pink
  • denim, off white and lt. blue
  • denim, khaki and bright blue
  • pink, navy and grey
  • yellow, turquoise and grey

The color opportunities are endless, I can help guide you! Whatever combination you decide upon, make sure that at least one of the colors is a neutral like, denim, khaki, grey or off white. Instruct everyone to avoid bold patterns as they can be distracting in photos. Layering pieces like a cardigan sweater or scarf are good choices to add some pizzazz and contrast.  

 


6. Things to bring

This list is totally optional! You don't have to bring any of these items but, you might find it helpful to have some on hand: 

  1. **Bug spray
  2. **Hairspray - key to keeping the flyaway hairs at bay!
  3. **Face powder (to reduce shine) and small mirror
  4. **Snacks and a small bottle of water + napkins
  5. Comb or brush
  6. Lipstick or lip gloss
  7. Safety pins
  8. A lint brush
  9. Extra set of clothes for kids and extra diapers
  10. A favorite toy
  11. A blanket or special chair, if needed

Julia is a professional NBA cheerleader for the Boston Celtics. In June, we met at the Wayside Gristmill in Sudbury, MA to update her headshots and modeling portrait portfolio. We selected the gristmill property for our session because of it's lush greenery and natural beauty. It has some really nice shady areas with simple backgrounds that are perfect for portraits. During our hour long session, I captured a variety of; headshots, three quarter and full body poses, in both of her Celtics uniforms. Each image was carefully composed to showcase her personality and style! These are some of Julia's favorite images from her proof gallery.

Boston Wedding Photography | D + N's Wedding https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2017/12/boston-wedding-photography-d-ns-wedding It was a gorgeous early November day...the late afternoon sunlight was bright and so lovely and the air was crisp, a definite sign that fall was here to stay. It was also a very important day for these two people, as it was the day they committed their love and lives to one another! They were married in the family home that the groom grew up in, with their closest family, friends and beloved dogs in attendance. It was personal, intimate, and perfectly romantic! And, I had the honor of capturing the sweet moments they shared.

Boston Senior Portrait Photographer | Lizzie's Session in a Field of Reeds https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2017/11/boston-senior-portrait-photographer-lizzies-session-in-a-field-of-reeds Lizzie knew exactly where she wanted to be photographed for her senior portrait session....in nature and most importantly, in a field of reeds. How cool is that? During our phone consultation, she mentioned that she really liked a senior portrait I had captured in a sunflower field and that she wanted a similar portrait taken in the reeds. So that's exactly what we did. I met Lizzie and her mom for an early evening session that focused around an interesting reed field and stone path. Here are some of my favorite images from her gallery.

Fall Portrait Sessions with Jennifer LaRoche Photography | Sasha's Family https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2017/11/fall-portrait-sessions-with-jennifer-laroche-photography-sashas-family Fall portrait photography...I just love it! The air is crisp, the light is softer and all that glorious foliage...This year, most of my sessions were captured in Wellesley, MA on the property that abuts Wellesley College. There are some really pretty and diverse backdrops for portraits on this property. I found lovely tree lined paths, boardwalk benches and interesting bridges that overlook Lake Waban. I met with Sasha and her family for a late afternoon photo shoot a few weeks back. Here are some of my favorites from their session.

Boston Surprise Marriage Proposal Photographer | Tara and Chrissy's Engagement https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2017/4/boston-surprise-marriage-proposal-photographer-tara-and-chrissys-engagement Photographing a surprise marriage proposal is an amazing experience. To be able to capture a life changing moment for a couple is truly an honor and a great responsibility...and I love doing it! After a few email exchanges and a phone call, Tara hired me to photograph her proposal to Chrissy. Luckily for me, Tara is a planner! Together we worked out every last detail and possible scenario for the proposal. We even planned for a specific hand gesture that would indicate to me when she was going to drop down to one knee!

 

Love is All You Need

Tara and Chrissy's love story began in 2012 during their first trip to Boston. They had an absolute blast exploring the city. They visited Faneuil Hall, the Common, a few pubs and even took in a movie. When they left at the end of the weekend, they knew Boston was a special place that they had to visit again. That weekend sparked a yearly tradition and the city of Boston became part of their relationship. Unknowingly and unplanned, they were in Boston during the marathon weekend in 2014. The streets were filled with marathon runners dressed in their bright orange and turquoise B.A.A. solar zest jackets. The sight of so many marathon jackets inspired Chrissy, it was in that moment that she decided to run in the Boston Marathon. Two years later, she did just that! She qualified and ran in the 2016 marathon.

Tara knew that Boston was the place to propose. She told me that the city provided them with countless, positive memories and there was just no better place. The date was set for Friday, April 14, 2017, at the start of Boston Marathon weekend.

Proposal Day

Tara and I met for a quick conversation as she waited outside the Expo Center for Chrissy, who was inside getting her marathon bib and bag of goodies. She was so excited and a bit nervous as you can imagine. My husband and I moved into position outside Whiskey's restaurant and waited for them to walk passed us. Boylston Street was bustling with people....lucky for me, my husband is a good people blocker which helped me get the-shot!

Tara planned to propose to Chrissy right on the Boston Marathon finish line. The road was still open to traffic when we got there so she decided on this spot, which overlooks the area!

After the proposal, we walked to the Commonwealth Mall green space to capture some portraits. Here are some of my favorite images from their gallery.

Natick Photographer | Mona R. Fall Family Mini Portrait Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/10/natick-photographer-mona-r-fall-family-portrait-session There are so many fantastic spots on the Wellesley College campus for family portraits. This is especially true during the fall, when the campus is bursting with color. This fabulous tree was a favorite stop for us during Mona’s family mini-session! I love the way the exposed roots branch out and how the soft back drop of fall colors complete the scene for their portrait.

Fall Family Portrait Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/10/natick-photographer-emily-d-fall-family-portrait-session I met Emily and her sweet family at Wellesley College last Saturday, for an hour portrait session. It was such a beautiful Fall day! The temperature was perfect for outdoor photography and the foliage was just starting to peak. We had a nice time strolling the campus, playing in the leaves and capturing some great photos along the way. Here are some favorites from the session.

Theo Family Sunflower Portraits at Colby Farm | Massachusetts Portrait Photographer https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/10/theo-family-sunflower-portraits-at-colby-farm-massachusetts-portrait-photographer Colby Farm's sunflower field is a must see! I just love it and so do my clients. This year, the sunflowers were about 2' shorter than usual due to the summer draught. The field was still gorgeous and the shorter flowers actually made it easier to capture group shots like the one below. This is my second time photographing the wonderful Theo family! We spent an hour together enjoying the field and capturing lots of images for their holiday cards and photo gifts. Here are some favorites from their session.

Boston Event Photographer | First Holy Communion Celebration for CC https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/5/boston-event-photographer-first-holy-communion-celebration-for-cc I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing a very special event, a First Holy Communion party! Receiving Communion (Eucharist​, food of eternal life) for the first time is an important Catholic milestone. It signifies a rite of passage in one’s spiritual journey. After the ceremony, family and friends gathered at Fairways to celebrate and enjoy a fun afternoon of dining, dancing and DJ games.

Product Photography and Selling Tips for eBay https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/5/product-photography-and-selling-tips-for-ebay eBay Product Photography Tips
 

Are you trying to sell products on eBay? Good product photos sell products. It's true! If your items are not selling, reshoot your images, update your titles and refresh your descriptions. Here are some other photo tips to consider.
 

  1. Shoot your products with a simple white background. If you plan to sell a lot of products you might consider purchasing a light box. You'll find many different offerings online. I use inexpensive white foam board as a backdrop. You can buy single pieces or a trifold at your local craft store. I used both for the images below.
     
  2. Shoot with a camera as opposed to cell phone for the best clarity and light control.
     
  3. Shoot with flash or natural light from a nearby window.
    • Tips for flash:   Directing flash right at the product will produce a harsh cast/shadows and possibly bright hot spots, especially if the item is reflective. Instead, aim the flash up towards a white ceiling or over towards an adjacent white wall. If the wall isn't white, try hanging something that's solid white to bounce the light off of, like a bed sheet or foam board. This simple step will produce a softer light on the product. 
       
    • Tips for natural window light: position your table/white foam board backdrop about 5' to 8' away from the window (adjust as needed). Diffuse the bright light by closing the window sheers/curtains (if white) or by hanging a thin white sheet over the window.
       
  4. Shoot clear, close up photos. The more details you can show the better the chances of selling the item.
    • Try shooting in Aperture Priority Mode to control the depth of field. 
       
    • Your camera settings will vary depending upon the item you are shooting, the background color, lens and the available light. Take several test shots and make adjustments as needed.
       
    • If the photos are coming out too dark, increase your ISO.
       
    • The images below were shot in Manual Mode with the following camera settings: ISO 200, f/5, 1/200th shutter speed. I aimed my NIkon SB-700 speedlight at the white ceiling above and also bounced it off the side of the white foam board. After a few small edits in Photoshop and Voila! it was ready to list. Shoot every side of the item to really show it off.
       
  5. Shoot the product with something that shows size or depth, like a ruler or a quarter for perspective.
     

  6. Shoot the product in use, if possible.
     

  7. Shoot the vendor tags (designer tags, price tags, size tags etc.)
     

  8. Shoot the product in and out of the packaging, if possible.
     

  9. Edit the photos. Use editing software to lighten darker images, add contrast and clarity as needed. There are free editing software programs online that will do the trick.

eBay Product Titles and Descriptions
 

 Detailed product titles and descriptions also help sell product!
 

  • Review eBay selling tips - lots of good info!
     
  • Before you list a product, do some research. Look up similar items on eBay and google to find the keywords that will accurately describe the product you're selling.
     
  • Write concise listing titles. The first few words in the listing title are usually the most important. They determine how the product will rank in the search results. Choose them wisely! This is how I titled the bracelet above: Shamballa Macramé Bracelet {the first three words describe the kind of bracelet} Shiny Faceted Beads and Crystal Pave Bead Ball {these words describe the type of beads}. I had my first bid on this bracelet 30 minutes after listing it! I must admit that it was very quick and not a typical result.
     
  • Consider including short descriptive bullets that highlight the important things you want the viewer/buyer to know about your product. This information might include:
    • If it's new, never used, pre-owned or vintage (include the era, if known)
       
    • Color variations, if the photos show that it's brighter, darker or lighter than the actual product
       
    • Imperfections, list them if any. Buyers will appreciate your honesty.
       
  • List your product in the correct search category - SO important! Refer to eBay's selling tips for more info.
     
  • Price your product competitively (do the research!).
     


 

Lastly, don't forget to promote your listings!

eBay offers sh are buttons for email, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.


Happy Selling!

Boston Photographer | Gabriella's Senior Portrait Session at the Boston Public Garden https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/4/boston-photographer-gabriellas-senior-portrait-session-at-the-boston-public-garden I met Gabriella, her sister Amanda and her adorable baby niece Riley at the Boston Public Garden last Saturday. We had to reschedule her senior portrait session three times since the beginning of April due to the crazy/unseasonable weather. Luckily, Saturday was a beautiful day! Our shoot started with a quick trip to Acorn Street in Beacon Hill and ended at the Boston Public Garden.

Nikon 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S VR Micro Nikkor Lens Review by Jennifer LaRoche Photography https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/2/nikon-105mm-f/2-8g-ed-if-af-s-vr-nikkor-lens-review-by-jennifer-laroche-photography Macro Lens Review: Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED IF AF-S VR 


Are you interested in macro photography and camera lenses designed to capture tiny details? The Nikkor 105mm 2.8 for Nikon is a specialty telephoto/macro prime lens that is capable of producing images up to a 1:1 magnification ratio for life size close-ups. This lens offers excellent optical performance on both digital and 35mm film format SLR cameras. It is a valuable lens for macro work, portraiture and general shooting.


 

Summary & Performance

Cost around $900 | Technical Highlights
 

  • Telephoto Prime Lens
     
  • 1:1 Magnification Ratio; Macro Close-Ups
     
  • F Mount Lens/FX Format
     
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to 32
     
  • One Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Element
     
  • Nano Crystal & Super Integrated Coating
     
  • Silent Wave Motor AF System
     
  • Nikon VR Image Stabilization
     
  • Internal Focus; Manual Focus Override
     
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 12"
     
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm (creates nice, smooth bokeh)
     
  • Weight: 1.58lb


Other Features - on the lens there are three toggles;
 

  • M/A - M: Controls whether the lens is in autofocus mode with manual override (M/A) or manual focus only mode (M).
     

  • Full - Infinity to 0.5m: Controls whether the lens will focus throughout its range (Full) or only in the "far" range (Inf-0.5m).
     

  • VR On - VR Off: Turns the vibration reduction system on (On) and off (Off).

The Nikon 105mm f/2.8 lens is a great piece of glass especially for macro work. A tripod along with good lighting are key when focusing on small subjects. The ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element minimizes the chromatic aberrations (color fringing) and the Nano Crystal lens coating along with the elongated lens hood dramatically reduce ghosting and flare. The vibration reduction and the exceptional image quality are stand out features of this lens. I love the clean, sharp, fine details it produces. I have not tested the lens in low light as most my macro work is done in natural daylight.

Always try before you buy! 

I would suggest trying to rent this lens before purchasing it. Google camera gear rental shops in your area or check out Borrow Lenses.
As a small business owner, I always recommend shopping locally whenever you can! For buying online, I like B&H Photo. They offer both new and used cameras and lens at competitive prices, and the customer service department is exceptional.

Selling Photography Artwork - My Story https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/2/selling-photography-artwork---my-story About Me
 

Hello! My name is Jennifer LaRoche and I am a photographer of people, places, nature and things. My photography is a labor of love, my creative outlet and my source of income -  sometimes I think it chose me as much as I chose it. I hope this blog post will be inspirational and give some pointers too!


Sharing and selling your art with the world can be scary!
 

Do you have a hobby that you love and is your creative passion? Have you ever thought about selling your artwork or creations? I did....for a long time. The thought of actually doing it was a bit scary at first. Of course, I had all of the normal thoughts and questions running through my head; How will my photography be received? Will anyone like it? What if I don't sell anything? Looking back on it, I understand my skepticism but I'm so thrilled that I took the chance. 
 


 Selling Online 
 

Etsy is an e-commerce website which offers handmade art and vintage items, supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items. After doing some research, I decided that Etsy was a good fit for me. On November 13, 2011, I took the leap and opened my Stamp and Note Photography shop. My business name originated from a simple customer focused marketing idea, I include a forever stamp with every photo note card order so all the customer will need is a pen! I also sell prints, canvases and photo magnets. Building my brand identity, reaching the right customers and actually selling my work is really like having second full-time job (which I still love doing!).
 

 Some tips to consider if you are thinking about opening an Etsy shop:
 

  • Review the online Etsy Sellers Handbook! So much great info.
     
  • Learn about SEO's and how to maximize your tags, keywords and listing titles. You can see how your titles appear in google,  right from the listing editor.
     
  • Great images will sell your products - your images really must shine to be noticed! Use appropriate lighting techniques to show off your product.
     
  • Shop your competitors - take a good look at their site merchandising, prices, category names, tags and titles
     
  • Join some teams to promote your work and to network with other artisans
     
  • Fill out your about page, customers are interested in you as well as your work
     
  • Ask for some reviews - new customers want to know about the experiences of other customers
     
  • Keep up with what is trending or in season and when possible offer something that is relatable.
     
  • Use social media to reach new customers!! #hastags work! Check for trending hashtags to see if they're appropriate for your listing(s)
     

There are so many great sites out there where you can sell your artwork. Look around, ask others about their experiences and find the one that's right for you!
 


Selling at Artisan Fairs & Craft Shows
 

After a few years of selling on Etsy, {"DeviceAngle":-0.008574592}  I branched out and started selling my artwork at artisan/craft shows and farmer's markets. I bought a big white tent, a couple of tables and used my creativity to present my photography in the best way possible. I am a "people person" so I really enjoy the face to face interaction with my customers. I always feel honored when someone spends their hard earned money on something that I've created. To know that my artwork is be enjoyed in someone's home or be used to send a heartfelt note to a loved one keeps me going.    
 

In the beginning, I found it challenging to find shows. Most of the online sites want you to pay a fee and join their network. That's fine for some people but at the time, I was on a tight budget so that was out of the question. I learn about new shows by networking with other artisans. They are always willing to tell you which ones are good or bad. My Etsy team pages are also a great place to find out about upcoming shows. Show fees range from $25 up to thousands. An average fee is about $75 for an 7hr. day.
 

Some tips to consider:
 

  • Before you book a show, learn what your state tax obligations are and sign up if required
     
  • Print out a copy of your Sales Tax Id (if applicable), many shows require that you have it with you
     
  • Have a display plan - it will greatly reduce your set up time stress!  Do a run through at home, set up the fixtures / product and maybe even create a diagram to make it easier for you and who ever is helping you.
     
  • Designate an area on a table for promotional materials including: email sign ups, promotional offers and business cards/signage
     
  • Always have more $1.00 bills than you think you'll need. I usually start with $30. Also, be sure to have lots of spare change!
     

Selling at Local Stores
 

I few years back, I started selling my work in some local specialty stores. I love the exposure that I get from having my product on a shelf! Several of my repeat customers first found me at an artisan show then at one of these stores:
 

Please contact me for consignment & wholesale opportunities.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this blog. ~ Cheers!

Winter Photography on Cape Cod | Jennifer LaRoche Photography https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/1/winter-photography-on-cape-cod-jennifer-laroche-photography One of my most favorite things to do in the winter is to drive to Cape Cod and photograph the scenic areas and beaches. My husband and I make the hour + long trek several times over the winter months to visit with family and to sniff the ocean air!  We look like two stay puft marshmallow people (Ghostbusters reference) walking down the beach in our heavy winter garb, but we love it! Mayflower Beach Dennis, MAMayflower Beach Dennis, MAempty mayflower beach winter photo

An empty Mayflower beach is a sight you'll only see in the winter!
 

 { Snowy Owl, Dennis, MA }
 

I captured this snowy owl on a VERY cold and windy day.  We had to warm up in the car several times just so we could stay a little longer. I was hoping to capture him in flight but he just sat and sat and sat and I got colder and colder and colder. I was so far away from the owl that he looked like a little lump through my 300mm lens. Since I was shooting with my full frame camera I knew I could crop the image down, but I wasn't sure how far.  I'm really happy the results!

Can't wait for our next Cape Cod photo adventure!

Natick Portrait Photographer | Home Session | Jennifer LaRoche Photography https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2016/1/natick-portrait-photographer-home-session-jennifer-laroche-photography A few days after Christmas, I had the pleasure of photographing a family that I've know since childhood. Joanne hired me to capture family portraits at her lovely home in Natick. She wanted some fun photos especially of her granddaughters, that she could use for a New Year's card. To help my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera I always ask them to do a few things that make them laugh and relax. Try this the next time your going to have your photo taken: before you hold your pose, shake out your hands for a few seconds and let then slowly rest them in place. I've noticed that this one step releases tension, calms the mind and helps a natural smile shine through.

Family Formal Portrait Session https://www.jenniferlarochephotography.com/blog/2015/12/natick-portrait-photographer-kb-family-formal-portrait-session Everything turns out the way it’s supposed to be…our plan was to capture casual family portraits on the town common. Days before the session, the weather forecast which was; sunny and seasonably warm changed to all day rain storms. After a few phone calls, we were onto plan B which included an indoor location that could accommodate our large group. The session was fun & relaxed and my clients were happy with the images we captured!

Testimonials
 

We met Jennifer to take our family Christmas pictures and we could have not been happier!! She was fun, creative, patient and great with the kids. Her prices are very reasonable and her turnaround time was great. The pictures are fabulous and I have already given her name as a reference! You will not be disappointed! - Tara B.
 

If I had three words to describe Jennifer, they would be Talented, Professional and Thoughtful. Our experience with Jennifer was nothing short of outstanding and we were highly impressed by her commitment to make sure the right moment and expression were captured by the photograph. Every photo she produced for us had the highest quality. We ended up purchasing all of them along with a few canvas prints for our living room. What sets Jennifer apart from other photographers we've had in the past is her willingness to work with us post-session to make sure our selection of photos and canvas prints were the right ones for us. She made herself available numerous times to discuss details with us before we went ahead and made our purchases. I'd gladly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to hire a photographer. - Jose B. & Caitlin S. 
 

We had so much fun getting our family pictures taken by Jennifer. She is professional, creative, talented and so easy to work with. The pictures were sent to us almost immediately after our photo shoot. They all turned out beautifully! You will absolutely love your experience with Jennifer. - Lori O.
