Jamie says:

“I was inspired to do this session after walking in the woods one day with my daughter. I loved how the trees were starting to bud leaves and flowers, and the new life after a long winter.

My daughter is starting to lose the little girl look and I knew I only had a small opportunity left to capture her being a kid. When thinking about a theme, I knew I wanted to emphasis the saying, ‘what little girls are made of.’

I was able to coordinate with multiple vendors for props, flowers, and hair to pull it all together and bring my vision to life.”

Jamie’s Photography Tip:

As a photographer, you have a unique trade to offer other vendors. If you have a vision in mind it can be easy to get other vendors to contribute by letting them use the images you create with their products as sample images for their own clients.

I offered my services for their services and accomplished some beautiful images that I could not have done without a great team of professionals. In turn, they have some great images they can use in their portfolios as well.

Plus – it’s a great way to network with vendors in your area for potential future referrals!







Jamie used a Canon 5d Mark II with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L lens and a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L lens to capture these images.
