Branding Sneak Peak

As some of you may know, I have been going through a branding process for the past 2 months. I was on the waiting list for this company for nearly a year. It's nearing the end of the process, but here is a peak of my new branding colors:

That's all you get for now - I am hoping to reveal the new brand by the new year :D

12 Day Old Maggie | Kristen Schueler Photography | Newborns

Photographing newborns is no easy feat. You must be patient, gentle, and use your intuition. Ideally, you get them in the first 10 days of life, which often makes for an easier session. This morning I had a shoot with Baby Maggie - 12 days old. She was, by far, the most cooperative baby I have worked with. She slept well, and when she was awake, was barely cross-eyed (generally a definite for newborns under 2 weeks), and had gorgeous skin. I think I might make rule that I won't shoot babes over 2 weeks... it only took about 2 hours, while I have taken up to 5 hours with older (i.e. fussier) babies. I am thrilled with the images from this shoot, and here's a few for you to ooo and ahhhh at!

Love this little Christmas pixie hat I knitted for the Holidays!

Look at those eyes! So alert - and she's even smeyes-ing (smiling with her eyes)!

Maggie was such a joy! Parents waited to find out if Maggie was a boy or a girl, and I was so excited when I heard it was a girl. Boys are great too, but girls you get to accessorize! I could have photographed this little one all day. Such a sweet family, can't wait to share the rest of their images with them!

Hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and is enjoying leftovers!

This weeks I heart Faces challenge is silhouettes. As it turns out, I was finishing up an edit on my cousin Steph's wedding, when I came across the perfect image.

I just love the contrast in this first dance picture. They are almost completely in shadow, but you can still see the emotion in their faces. To see more images from Steph & Ian's 10-10-10 wedding, head over to my website and check out the "featured" section, which is currently showcasing their wedding.

Danger is my MIDDLE, really, it is...

...Is what Jackson Danger will be saying to all the ladies (in a few years...). Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing a sleepy but smiley Jackson. It took me a while to get him to smile for me, but I was finally able to figure out that he digs the fake sneeze. Apparently my fake sneeze is HYSTERICAL!

Pictured to the left is Jackson rocking a seasonally appropriate orange thermal shirt, complete with a Moose emblem. He tried to give me blue steel, but I wouldn't have any of his shenanigans!

Jackson's father is Canadian, and I believe this little furry hooded number is a gift from one of his Canadian kin. It was super adorable on him, and this might be my favorite shot from the day!

After Jackson's shoot, his BFF's Kieran & Cece joined him for some chillaxin' (his words, not mine) at the beach.

These little models may look familiar, as they have been featured on previous posts of mine. Jackson, Cece, & Kieran...aka The Doozers. They're doozing.

Currently I am working on doggie pricing, and packages for both weddings and kiddos. My branding is also being worked on, and I am supposed to be receiving revisions tomorrow. So excited! Super busy with Christmas editing and organizing...expecting the business to really grow in 2011.

Hope everyone has a great week!

"Due to Inclement weather..."

...are usually exciting words to a kid. It translates to: NO SCHOOL! But as an "adult" (I giggle when I call myself an adult), bad weather just gets in the way more than anything else.

Today I made an executive decision that was not easy; canceling a shoot! It's probably best that I ended up canceling todays shoot, an engagement session at Fenway. The day started out with snow and hail, then changed over to rain with gale force winds. While I am disappointed, I am still planning on doing it in the future; possibly not until the spring though. I did manage to get a lot of organization done in the office today, which is something I have been struggling with.

I also decided to enter this weeks I Heart Faces contest. This weeks theme: orange!

I encourage you all to check out their weekly contests. It's mainly just for fun but it is exciting to be a part of!
