We moved in May, as we drove down the Tunnel of Trees for the first time I was convinced this was something truly special we were witnessing as the trilliums bloomed and covered the woods. Among the sea of white toward the end of the Trillium season one can spy the occasional Pink Trillium. I am so in love with Northern Michigan & Harbor Springs, and wanted to choose a name  that represented the beauty of my little Northern Michigan studio and the euphoria I feel being able to live, work and love here!

Inside the Photography Studio http://pinktrilliumphotography.com/blog/2013/3/inside-the-photography-studio In Northern Michigan the beauty is endless so given the choice I prefer the natural light and beauty of Northern Michigan! Your favorite spot or mine.....

But, there always is the occasion that the studio is a more appropriate setting. So let me give you a peek into the Pink Trillium Photography Studio.  It has great natural light, but the umbrella lights lights are there to assist on the not so sunny days.....

 

Backdrops of white, barnboard, stone, fur,...etc to choose from. I also incorporate many props to keep the little ones smiling! Beyond the rocking horse there is also antique pedal cars, vintage sled, vintage suitcases, wagon's, vintage school desk, anything to get a perfect smile! While the props are great it is the smile that is the focus of the portrait. (Props often used in on location shoots too!) This photo shows the many other accessories I incorporate if desired including, hats, newsboy, tutu's, headbands, wings, etc....

Also pictured a favorite wedding prop, the ampersand. The gold disc is is a 5in1 reflector used both in studio sessions and on location sessions to add a warm glow, create a shady spot, or just brighten a smile.

A favorite part of the Pink Trillium Photography studio is the all of the beautiful thank you cards, and testimonials I have received and displayed. 

Northern Michigan brides and engaged couples I would love to invite you to the Pink Trillium Photography Studio so I can share the sample canvas', standouts', thank you cards', matboard prints', books', and album samples with you. I would also love the opportunity to share with you a little before and after behind the scenes!  Pink Trillium Photography featured in UpNorth Bride.... Thanks for peeking in The Pink Trillium Photography Studio! I would love to schedule your studio or on location family portraits, baby portraits, newborn portraits, high school senior portraits, maternity portraits, engagement portraits, professional headshots, or wedding soon!

Thanks again!

Jennifer

The best way to pose toddlers and kids for portraits.... http://pinktrilliumphotography.com/blog/2012/4/the-best-way-to-pose-toddlers-and-kids-for-portraits The best way to pose toddlers and little kids for portraits....don't. I do enjoy the posed shots but more times than not my favorite portraits come from telling the kids "okay we are done, have fun playing". I try to keep distance and let them have fun! L posed for some beautiful portraits, but I believe her true smile came through while she was having fun with her brothers and friends. The same held true with her very sweet, but very shy brother. He did want to pose at all.... I caught this after all of the excitement was over and he was sharing a piece of his mom's pie at the kitchen counter. The left over pie is visible in the before. A little photoshop magic used to remove the crumbs, but no photoshop used on his eyes! He has gorgeous eyes! and from the sandbox...

This theory has held true in other sessions as well. This little L  did not want her picture taken at all! On of my favorites was captured after she sat down by herself and was given a little cookie. She calmed down, I kept my distance. She enjoyed her cookie but still had the most adorable little pout. Another one of my favorites...from the slide! I have so many favorites! They all have such wonderful personalities! If we have fun, they will have fun and they will shine! This is one of the main reason's why I refuse to put time limits on sessions. It is their world we are just living in it. So let's have fun and Tips on posing newborn portraits, maternity photographs, high school senior portraits, engagement photographs, and wedding photographs coming soon.

Sprinkles of a vacation http://pinktrilliumphotography.com/blog/2012/3/sprinkles-of-a-vacation Pink Trillium Photography took a little vacation last week to Aruba. Who knew Northern Michigan was just as warm and sunny as Aruba last week! Unfortunately, the kids were sick so I was only able to capture sprinkles of the vacation as quite a bit of the vacation was spent in our room. Could not be happier to be home, see the snow has disappeared, and spring is blooming. I am looking forward to all the spring summer weddings. I am extremely grateful for fabulous support of my wonderful clients! I missed you Northern Michigan, glad to be back! There is no place like home, as wonderful as Aruba is. It seemed as  if the lizards multiplied since we were there last. They were everywhere! My kids loved seeing them. Enjoy! Again, many many thanks for your support!

Snow Adventure http://pinktrilliumphotography.com/blog/2012/3/snow-adventure With over a foot and a half of snow and no modern technology other than the camera we had a little adventure. While I had my moments of feeling a little more inconvenienced than adventurous the snow was absolutely stunning! I am convinced Northern Michigan is one of the most beautiful places to live. A true black and white, the woods covered in snow, absent of any color, hard to believe color is coming soon! There was a lot of color in the photo's below. Too much color with busy pj's & sheets. With no power we made the best of the situation. During the day the mattress on the floor made the perfect stage, at night a cozy place to snuggle by the fire. Hope you enjoyed our adventure, I am looking forward to preserving yours!

Thanks!

Jen

Studio vs. Northern Michigan's Natural Beauty http://pinktrilliumphotography.com/blog/2012/3/studio-vs--northern-michigans-natural-beauty My mission for the day, despite the beautiful fresh white show, was to THINK SPRING. I got the studio all set up and tried to convince the kids it would be FUN to take some pictures. Let's just say it was more fun and we got better results in the fresh snow. In the studio D would only pose with "props" and Q was only happy when she was sitting right at the end of the lens. Cody wanted some love too! Enjoy this little peek into the Pink Trillium Photography studio, and God's studio. Silly D.... he was so proud of this picture! It is the "Dino Dan Safari Ninja Turtle" Not exactly the pretty spring picture I has hoping for, but love it anyways. Q thinks you have to be eye to eye to get a good picture. Maybe she is trying to see exactly how the camera works. I love her eyes. Almost got them to cooperate! It is much easier to be just a photographer or just a mom, not both! LOVE this one! Everyone was much happier in the fresh snow!

Thanks for peeking into our world! I would love the opportunity to peek in your and preserve all of your silly moments too.

Jennifer!
