Omaha Love

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I was inspired to share an engagement session & some secret tips.
A few Engagement session tips (these can be applied to all sessions):

  1. Coordinate your outfits…if you are dressy then he should be dressy too.
  2. You don’t have to steer away from color and patterns…again, just make sure you compliment each other
  3. If you do want to wear a color or pattern that stands out then think about what colors you want on the walls of your home or on your save the date/wedding programs (this can be applied to families/couples planning their annual holiday card…
  4. Brainstorm locations and props that are “you.” What do you like to do together, how did you meet? where was your first date? Same principal can be applied to families wanting to capture fun unique photos. HAVE FUN and be yourself!

Here is an engagement session from the Old Market in Omaha, Nebraska
I have always been drawn to graffiti, and using chalk to create personal graffiti for clients is a fun way to incorporate special days, words…into photos

Downtown Omaha is a great backdrop!


Props

Here are some photos to inspire you to get creative with your next session!
I can’t wait to brainstorm with you & see what we come up with to create unique and fun photos for you this year!
Just look at a few of my creative clients from this year:


This picture is from an engagement session for some fun lovin’ chess players

Besides Chess they also love coffee too….they had these mugs custom made for them….I love ideas that you can use for your photos and then still use in your home
To help you brainstorm:
What do you love? Show it in your photos. What do you want to buy for your home & life…can you use it in photos? –a chair, a sign, a prop, a chalkboard …..

Thank you to all military members and their families!
Did you know that Sullivan Photography gives 10% off to all weddings, sessions & products….we are so thankful for your service!
This bride & her brother (in picture) served in Iraq at the same time-we wanted to honor & show that in a wedding day photo.

These words are cute in photos and it would be cute in your home too…bring “I Do” out every Valentines Day for decoration to remind you of the day you said “I do.” This idea can be incorporated into any type of photos….

What season are you getting married? What are your wedding colors? How can you incorporate this into your wedding?
You can apply this idea to your high school senior portraits and family/baby pictures….
Just think about what colors you want on your walls in your home or a fun prop for your child to bring to your next portrait session….
