Baby D

The S Family welcomes their newest and third addition, a little girl!  Momma had just the right props to coordinate with her nursery and to keep it sentimental!  Dainty headbands and cheese cloths are a must-have for little girls!

The backdrop is the crib skirt from her nursery...handmade by her Mimi!
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to like Amanda Mitchell Photography on Facebook and contact me at amitchellphotography (at) yahoo (dot) com to book your session!

New Changes

I started to make post title "Changes for 2014," and realized we're already half way through March.'s getting in the way!  Also, it doesn't feel like photography starts in the new year until I may technically be late on my announcement, but according to my 'work' calendar I'm just on time.  That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Two changes for this year...

one - digital images will now be offered via Dropbox.  You may still opt to receive your images on disc and mailed or picked up, but it will be an additional $5.  I'm really trying to cut back on 'waste' and resources, so one way is to urge customers to go the Dropbox route.  Also, with Dropbox you receive your images sooner!  With two tots at home (one preschool aged and the other wanting to do preschool activities), making less runs to the post office makes my life just a tad easier. 

psst - not sure what Dropbox is how to use it?  Just click on the hyper links and it will take you to the Dropbox tutorial.  As a creature of habit who resists change (especially when it comes to technology - I still don't have a smart phone) Dropbox is fairly easy to use!  There is no worry about 'not having enough space.  I will be the one who is sharing the files to you, so you may decide to keep them on Dropbox and transfer them to another storage device (highly recommended).

two - some mini sessions may have a higher session fee.  This is due to any site fees I am required to pay to photograph on certain grounds.  There's a lot of debate within the photography forums about some of the 'public' areas that are requiring photographers to schedule and pay fees to conduct business on their property, but I will abide by the rules.  In the past I've avoided sites that require feeds, but recently I've had individuals request to have their pictures done at such locations.  So for mini sessions scheduled at such locations, each family will be responsible for their 'share' of the required site fee. 

That's it!  No price changes in sessions, image collections or prints!  As the weather gets warmer I hope to get my mini sessions scheduled!

Baby G...just in time!

Baby G made his arrival just in time to spend Christmas and New Year with the family!  What an awesome early Christmas present!  Hey, some of you parents know exactly what I mean!  ;) 

I had the pleasure of photographing Baby G's aunt's wedding a few years back and was quite honored when they asked me to do his newborn pictures!  We can also make the world a bit smaller...during that wedding I found out Baby G's grandmother was my FIFTH GRADE TEACHER!  Hats off to Mrs. W  and the D family to arrival of your new grandson! 

Baby G seriously must have been one of the best newborns for me to photograph.  This boy didn't sleep, but he sure was content!  I'm pretty sure he crashed for a long snooze after I was done with him. 

Here he is...

Welcome Baby A!

You know that friend that moved away and you haven't talked to in a while, but you can still call or text and you pick up right where you left of?  That's what Baby A's mom is to me.  Her with three kids at home and me with my two, we commiserate, complain, swap parenting tactics, stories and uplift each other during the hard times.  You know the 'hard' times.  When the preschooler doesn't want to nap anymore and has 'painted' the walls with his diaper contents while the toddler has a cold that makes his little nose resemble Niagra Falls and the baby just wants to nurse every 20 minutes  And maybe, just MAYBE take a shower.  Oh also forgot to brush your teeth this morning.  Yeahhhhh....'those' times....

Here's to baby A!  We will come see you and your brothers in the spring time for a play date!
