I took a week off from my normal life to go to Disney World with my family. Although I wasn’t editing or doing sessions, I did book a few newborns while away! I hope you don’t mind if I veer off of the photography blog for a bit to review our trip. I will throw […]

WHAT’S NEW? Back in June I submitted a few images to AFNS, an international competition in the field of newborn photography. Some of the judges on the panel are photographers that I follow everyday and with whom I have taken courses. I am so excited that two of my photos were winners in round 6!  […]

It’s crazy we are talking about Christmas already, but my schedule is filling up. This year we will use Fly A Way Tree Farm in Delaware for our Christmas sessions. Each session is 15 minutes and includes your 5 favorite photos to download. We are doing them early to hopefully avoid bad weather and to […]

This love story began at an elementary school career night back in 2008. Michelle had connections to the fire department, where her brother-in-law was a firefighter, so some staff members recruited her to secure a fire truck and squad for career night. Bryan was one of the firefighters who showed up to help. On her […]

Photographers often get asked about giving out the unedited versions of their photos. For any professional photographer, this is a big no-no.  Professional images are a work of art.

By Stacey Ash As you are probably aware, newborn photographers are a dime a dozen in central Ohio. All it takes is one look on a local facebook page where someone asks for a recommendation and you will see a long list of referrals.  So how do you know which one you should choose for […]

Wow, a year already! Harrison was the first newborn session I had in the new Powell studio. After that, I got to see him every 3 months for his Milestone sessions! Most newborns love to be wrapped. It’s my go-to for getting a fussy baby settled. Harrison wasn’t fussy, but he definitely did not like […]

Digital Backdrop – maybe you have heard the term, maybe not.  You have probably seen some examples and not even realized it.  I have gotten a few requests to replicate an image that was a digital backdrop (and often the client doesn’t realize that’s what it is). Digital backdrops are just that.  You purchase the […]

Hesitant about getting your photo taken? Moms are always behind the camera, it seems.  We rarely get in a photo and let’s be honest, most of the time we don’t want to.  We are so hard on ourselves, aren’t we?  I always make sure to get new moms in the photo with their new babies.  […]

Mini Session – one of photography’s buzz words right now.  So, what exactly are mini sessions?  Well, many people have them confused with “small” or “short” sessions.  There are some photographers who label their smallest package “mini” (I once did that), but I am not referring to those.  I am talking about the limited, special […]
