Jaylon Image


February 27, 2019

Most of the newborns I work with and what you see on Katherine D Photography are under 2 weeks of age. Occasionally, I will get some in the 2-3 week range (in which they do really well!). When mom contacted me, Jaylon was 2 months old!! I had never worked with a newborn that old, but I wasn’t going to turn them down! It took a little while for him to fall asleep, but once he did, he was OUT and I was able to achieve some amazing posed images!

What’s amazing about older newborns is that we often get amazing eye contact! And because Jaylon was 2 months old, I was also able to get some great smiles as well!!

A few years ago, I switched to an all inclusive model, where I was giving CDs of your images.  With technology being updated all the time and many computers doing away with a CD/DVD drive, I decided to give flash drives a try.  I have tried several different companies until I stumbled upon USB Memory Direct and requested a quote!  I received my quote within 15 minutes and had my artwork sent off to receive a preview of my USB!  USB Memory Direct helped me figure out the best way to lay out my logo, I was able to utilize their custom back printing so that my logo on the front was beautiful and easy to see and my contact information on the back was legible.

USB Memory Direct has so many beautiful flash drives to choose from!  From a classic swivel style, to wooden drives, to all kinds of fun shapes, such as a bracelet, a lanyard and even a bottle opener!!   There is definitely something for everyone and something that will work with your branding!

I went with the SWM style drives.  What I love about these drives is the customization!  There are SO many colors to choose from for their standard option, or you can choose a custom color that matches your branding!  The way I use the different colors is for the different types of sessions that I offer!  Each size drive has a different color to help me choose the right size drive for my clients! My Belly to Baby clients receive the silver USB, which is 8GB and enough to store both their maternity and newborn session on!  My regular clients receive the black 4GB size.  This year, I added a USB option to my school portrait clients.  USB Memory Direct had the size drives I needed (512MB) and my info was on the front and the back wast left blank so that I could add a sticker with the child’s name on the back.  I knew I needed a smaller size drive because it was a small amount of images included with the school photos.  There were no pushy sales tactics to try and get me to purchase a bigger size.

I’m so in love with my USB drives from USB Memory Direct!  They are perfect for me and give me the sleek look that matches my branding!  My clients love having not only a digital download but a tangible hard copy item that there digital photos are stored on!  I plan on purchasing some smaller 2GB drives for my mini session clients.  What color should I go with next?

My new studio! Image

My new studio!

September 12, 2017

In the beginning of July, my husband and I began the renovation of converting our garage into my new studio!! We got a shed at the end of May and moved everything into it. We did the majority of the work ourselves, and I couldn’t be more proud of what we did to achieve this new studio. The new space is AMAZING! So much room to move around, plus a wonderful client area, complete with a coffee maker and a TV!!

Ever wanted to watch me edit? Here’s a quick video where I edited a composite image (two separate images merged in photoshop). Many of the more complicated poses, such as this one (potato sack) and the froggy are done as a composite, hands never leave the baby! I believe in safety first and would never put your baby in harms way (or make them uncomfortable) just for a shot!
