Vintage Style Photo Shoot

Vintage Style Photo Shoot

Over the weekend I went to my first shoot out with Sallykate Photography. For those of you reading this you might be wonder what in the world is a “Shoot out”? It’s generally a more experienced photographer (and well known in the photography world) who puts together a specific styled session on location. It’s a great way for photographers to learn and gain some insights from the head photographer who’s hosting the shoot out. It’s also a fantastic was to make connections, and network with other photographers in the area! Photographers came from all over such as Chicago, Rockford, Mequon, Green Bay. It was fun learning how far everyone came.

Sallykate Photography who’s based out of Texas just happens to come up to Wisconsin during the summer and has hosted this shoot out for 4 years now. She is friends with a local photographer here in Wisconsin with 14 acres of land. The amazing property had SO many great photo spots! Her land is filled with lots of animals, an old barn, and fields of grass. You can’t get much better than that!

This year Sally wanted to do a vintage style photo shoot. She had local models come, as well as many children of the photographers who attended the shoot out! There were tons of vintage outfits and accessories. These kids did an amazing job modeling in the hot weather we had. It was fun photographing the maternity model as well. It was so fun editing this vintage style photo shoot and I thought I’d share some of my images with you.

Flower Bonnet

Flower Bonnet

Mom loved the use of colors in my work, which is one reason she booked her son’s 1 year cake smash with me. I was super excited to find out during her phone consultation that she was pregnant and wanted to book me for her newborn session as well!

Mom was hoping to get images of HER parents as well during the newborn session. She let me know they were coming from out of town for the birth of the baby. I was so happy they came and I got these beautiful shots of them with their new grand daughter! These are memories they were cherish for a very long time.

I knew from the cake smash she loves bold, bright colors with fun patterns so it was awesome choosing backdrops, headbands, and other props for her little girl’s session. After seeing my work displayed in my home studio during the cake smash session, she picked out the adorable floral drop with gold bed and layering fabric. I was SO excited at the little smile I caught in this shot.

I haven’t used my flower bonnet in a long time but thought it went perfect with my yellow backdrop. These beautiful jewel tone colors were stunning with baby girls skin tone. I love the green with pops of dark pink within the flower bonnet, as well as the hint of dark pink fluff under the bucket. It really ties the whole image together.

Little Newborn Fox

OH MY GOSH! First of all, when momma contacted me about booking her newborn session I was so excited at all her fun ideas. I had NO idea she was going to bring as many amazing props as she did though! She told me baby boy was going to be named Fox and so of course we needed to do a fun fox and outdoor themed set ups.

I couldn’t believe when mom, dad, and grandma came walking up to my doorstep with a box of trees, animals, and a giant slice of a tree trunk!!! Dad was such a trooper caring that thing around, but it was SO worth it! I kept telling them they should style themed newborn sessions all the time! My husband and I made the fun little tent, and and I ordered the awesome sleeping bag and lantern from this great shop KingsCloth on Etsy.

Not only did I have a TON of fun with this awesome family, but I’m stoked at the way Fox’s gallery turned out!

For some more fun ideas on props check out my Pinterest prop board!

This sweet family I haven’t seen for a few years, due to taking time off after having my youngest daughter. I originally met them when little E was a newborn, and how he’s 3!! I was excited when mom contacted me about maternity and newborn photos for their new little girl!

Little S did SUCH a great job during her newborn session! She slept so well for me, and I’m excited to have gotten all these squishy sleepy shots. Mom was a little nervous about getting the two kiddos together. I was quick to get this adorable shot of E kissing his baby sister on the forehead! I hope mom and dad cherish that photo forever.

Don’t you just love the pretty color scheme mom chose? She sent me a link to her Pinterest board, where she pinned lots of fun ideas for baby girls nursery. It was awesome, and gave me a great sense of what colors and style she liked for her session!
