commercial prom portraits for Bridal Traditions

Recently we were hired by good friend and fellow wedding aficionado, Kelly of BeYOUtiful Prom Boutique at Bridal Traditions to take some commercial fashion photos for her. We go way bac with Kelly and with her amazing business, so we were jazzed to jump in and do our part to help her as she prepares her marketing materials for 2018’s prom season. We photographed model and real junior-prom attendee Stacie Shumate in her actual prom gown purchased from BeYOUtiful Prom. The fashion shoot took place in our outdoor portrait garden at the Pixels’ studio in Wilkesboro. We photographed Stacie’s portraits just three short years ago in the peach orchards and can’t believe how much she has changed in such a short time. It was a pleasure and a treat! Thanks for letting us be a part of your business and life and for letting us watch you grow Stacie.Stacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoStacie's outdoor portrait Bridal Traditions prom commerical photography by Pixels On Paper Wilkesboro NC Photographers photoWe love family portraits whether they are set in the studio, the great outdoors, a specific location like the mountains or high country, or on our property in our outdoor portrait garden.

Reminder: outdoor autumn family, engagement & children’s portraits booking now in the NC mountains

Dear Ones,
We are still taking appointments for a limited number of portraits in the great outdoors for fall, so this is sort of a Last Call. Baby Case is on his way, so we’ve kept the appointments to a limited number, but we want to serve as many people as possible.

These sessions will take place in Boone, Blowing Rock, Jefferson or Wilkesboro to keep this pregnant Mama close to home. Sessions are open from September 30th – through the second week of October or until Little Man arrives.

We anticipate the color change in the NC mountains to be earlier this year due to the lack of rain and fact that we’ve already seen some color change and leaves falling. We encourage those wanting photos to reserve their session as soon as possible. Session fees start at $150 and are due at the time of reservation.  Call 336-990-0080 or email mail@pixelsonpaper.net for more info or to reserve your session. There are spots available still, so contact us as soon as possible and we’ll get you on our schedule.

Orozco Christian Crafts – commercial product photography for a wedding client with a great business

One of the joys – and believe me there are many – of being a photographer is seeing something happen with a client that you had no idea about. Do you follow? Sometimes, you’re taking family photos of a couple with their first child and discover later that the second is on the way. Or a family has gathered at a reunion and later, when a beloved member has passed, we all realize that the photos were the last. Time moves.

This is not that story though. This is business and a wonderful one at that. We photographed Ashley and Oscar’s wedding last year and fell in love with them and their story. Now, Ashley has created Orozco’s Christian Craft Shop and you can find them and Ashley’s amazing specialty work on Facebook.

Pixels on Paper for Ashley Orozco's Christian Craft Shop
Ashley hired us to take some photos of her products to use in their promotions and marketing and of course, we loved doing it. Among the various hand-made products she is creating are paper and fabric wedding bouquets and boutonnieres. They are just over-the-top special, beautiful and made with love.
 Every order is completely customized for each of her customers and her outreach is so much fun. I encourage anyone interested in learning more about her shop and ordering from her to visit the Facebook page and get in touch.

Contact us if you or your business has a commercial photography or graphic design need. We would be happy to help. www.pixelsonpaper.net

outdoor family portraits ~ some late summer fun

Hon family outdoor portrait Dobson NC Pixels On Paper family photographers photoI giggle a little every time I hear people opine that they just don’t have time for a portrait session. It’s not condescension, I promise. I understand busy. I “do” busy myself like plenty of other folks. This is life. But I also know that with a plan and a little will, you can pull off a photoshoot with you and your loved ones. Exhibit A: the Mendelson and Hon families we photographed recently.

We photographed Caroline and Andrew Mendelson’s wedding April 6, 2013. They found us through two referrals and were married in NC even though they lived in Boston at the time and still do. Caroline contacted us just a few weeks ago to find out if we were available to photograph her family along with her Mom and Dad, Mr. & Mrs. Hon while they were visiting them in NC for a week. OF COURSE, we made time in our schedule to make it happen.

Big sister Julia and little Hannah were so much fun to get to watch, tickle and photograph. We loved getting to spend a few hours in Dobson, NC catching up with everyone and celebrating Mr. Hon’s birthday, which just happened to be that day. I suspect he’ll love looking back on photos of his two grand-daughters – a couple of little cupcakes – who came to celebrate with him and his wife. These latest memories will soon decorate the walls of their homes.Hon family outdoor portrait Dobson NC Pixels On Paper family photographers photoHon family outdoor portrait Dobson NC Pixels On Paper family photographers photoHon family outdoor portrait Dobson NC Pixels On Paper family photographers photo

We do our best to accommodate requests for family portrait sessions because we know how much they matter. We’re spread out in this enormous country and time together is at a premium. Creating heirlooms for families like the Hons and Mendelson’s is our distinct pleasure.

We love family portraits whether they are set in the studio, the great outdoors, a specific location like the NC mountains or high country, or on our property in our outdoor portrait garden.

Graphic Design work for Colt’s Hearts of Comfort | Pixels On Paper designs brochures and notecards

 

colts heart tri fold brochure card design by graphic artists pixels on paper

This project was a personal one and we felt so privileged to be included in the promotion of Colt’s Hearts of Comfort. Parents Shana Greene Williams is a life-long family friend of mine and when she and her husband Thomas lost their son Colt at 38 1/2 weeks, only a few days before his birth, they were naturally devastated, confused, angry and left wondering “why?” These two Christ-followers, however, did not lean on their own understanding, but built on their grief. From the loss of Colt, they created a special non-profit to help others. It honors their son, allows him to have a legacy in death that he couldn’t have in life, and it provides comfort and support to families who’ve lost a child.

Shana reached out to us as the non-profit began to grow, because she knew there were families out there, like hers, who would need comfort when the unimaginable happens. The world keeps turning, but your heart is broken. She felt that hospitals, OB/GYN offices and others doctors, churches and organizations might need a brochure to give to those families. Children who are still-born or those who are miscarried are no less precious to the families who wanted and planned for them. Even with medical advances, there is still loss during pregnancy and the Williams’ knew this.

Ryan worked closely with Shana, discussed what she would need in a marketing piece, and designed a trifold brochure for the cause (the graphics above). He also designed a folded note card to accompany each pillow sent to families (the images below). Being a part of creating any kind of promotion for this group that understands loss, prays over each pillow and is reaching parents and families in a dark hour was an honor for us. The idea seems simple, but when you hold one of these pillows – that weighs roughly what the lost child weighed – you understand how important this project is.

We all want to think that we can “dig deep” when tragedy touches our lives. I believe that in Shana and Thomas you can see true faith in action. When we are small, the Lord looms large as our father, our comfort, and our example to others. We are weak and He is strong. He teaches us to lean on Him, and as we receive His comfort, we also receive an example of how to comfort others.
