Workshop Openings and Some BIG news

January 20th, 2010 , Posted in Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer, MiaBella Phtoshop Products, News, Photography Workshops

I’m so excited to be heading out to San Luis Obispo, CA in just a few weeks to teach a workshop with Joy Vertz and a guest appearance from a dear friend of mine, Amanda Elkins.

Joy is going to be teaching you how to take your business to a whole new level of success and profitability. Which we all know is a huge issue in this economy. I’ve known Joy for years through the photography community and had the opportunity to meet with her last year when she helped me develop an incredible plan of action to take my business to the next level.  If you want to learn how to market more efficiently, increase your bottom line and stay on top in this competitive market, Joy is your lady.

While Joy covers the business side of running a photography business, I’ll be teaching you how to capture your subjects in a natural and creative manner. All the while using the gorgeous available light that I so adore working with. You’ll learn how to develop connections with the children you photograph so that your portraits show their true spirit. I’ll also talk about and demonstrate how I choose the locations that have become a signature look in my portfolio. I’ll be talking about creativity and composition, utilizing available light, gentle posing, the importance of client clothing and styling and much more. Not to mention we’ll be heading out into that stunning California countryside for some fun shoots.

I’ll also be teaching a class covering the basics of off camera flash and how to use this exciting style of photography in your work. My dear friend, the amazingly talented Amanda Elkins will be working with me at this class posing and prepping our beautiful teen models. Amanda has worked as a model herself and has a knack for posing and photographing teen models that an inspiration to many photographers. So come prepared to learn a lot about off camera flash and how to work with your teen clients.

We do still have a few openings for this February 5-7 workshop and if you’re interested, check out the information on my website.  Contact me for details on a discount.

And since a post isn’t a post without an image of course I have to include one of my favorite subjects, my children.

Which brings me to my big news….we’re having another baby! We’ll be welcoming another sweet Profancik into the world this summer (due date is August 1).  So if it seems like I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit it’s because the morning sickness wiped me off the map for a couple of months. But thankfully I’m feeling good again and ready to get back into the swing of things until this little one arrives.

Our posse of 3-about to be 4. :)

Fall is here!

October 13th, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer, my family, Personal

Ahh…my favorite season! I just love the cool weather, pulling out my favorite sweaters, mugs of hot apple cider, trips to the orchard with the kids, the stunning trees and landscapes. Sigh…Indiana is a great place to be in October. Of course all of this loveliness puts me in the mood to shoot which is good, because it seems like everyone is in the mood for photos. :) Last year I got so busy I barely had the chance to take my kids out for any fall photos. I vowed to make sure I don’t neglect their photos this year. So here are a few of Bella from a shoot at a nearby park and field.

All of these images were edited with my Summer Skies photoshop action set. Guess it works for Autumn Skies too.

Could he be a redhead? – New Palestine Photographer

October 2nd, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Baby Photographer, Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer

This little sweetie’s mom has gorgeous red hair (go redheads!) and I really think her little boy may inherit it from her! I know as a redheaded mom I SO wanted one of my children to have red hair and fortunately I got mine. I think she will too! This little guy wasn’t quite a newborn when he came in to have his portraits done, but he was oh so good. Check out his adorable baby chunkiness-LOVED IT!

Adorable little man – Indianapolis Photographer

October 1st, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Baby Photographer, Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer

I just adore the 6-9 month age for shoots. Just check out this sweet boy to see why. He was so cute and easy going, and loved being outdoors. At this age, they are able to sit up well (but usually can’t take off yet) and are enthralled with the world around them-which makes for a perfect portrait session! And little A. was no exception.

ahhh…so sweet – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

September 23rd, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Baby Photographer, Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer, my family

Just take a peek at this beautiful little girl-how sweet is she! And she was such a good baby…she slept the session away and only woke up towards the end to tell momma that she was hungry. What a doll baby!

Oh so cute – Indianapolis Photographer, Greenfield Photographer

September 9th, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Baby Photographer, Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Indianapolis Photographer

This sweet little girl was just too cute to handle. She arrived after a nearly one hour drive sound asleep and woke up for our session. Now, I have a little girl just one year older and I KNOW waking my Bella up from a car nap would have resulted in meltdown madness. But this little lady did so well, no crying at all! She needed her momma for a few cuddles in between shots for the first 15 minutes or so, but after that we all had so much fun. She loved picking the Queen Anne’s Lace and posing for my camera. We talked about how she thought grass in some of the spots we shot at could use  a good mowing and how silly it was that a barn was totally empty. I had a blast with her!
