Goodness its been  awhile- 5 months to be exact. I know it’s not a good reason however I’ve been extremely (and that’s an understatement) busy this past summer and fall and even now winter but I am not complaining! Photographing so many awesome people these past few months have been great and I’m excited for what has been booked so far in 2014! So please forgive me blog world. I will make sure I start posting my sessions more often on the blog opposed to just updating my Facebook  page as well as my Instagram! (EricaCrosbyPhotos) Below check out the just a few of what I’ve photographed in the past weeks which are also on the Facebook page. More to come….

I love being a photographer, I had such a good afternoon in Birmingham MI photographing the lovely, glowing Sara for her maternity session with hubby Scott and doll of a daughter Stella. It was a clear day then as soon as our scheduled session time arrived – the rain, But we waited it out and stuck around in our cars for a few minutes and Ahhhhhh- stopped-eventually! Nonetheless the images came out spectacular of me capturing Miss (Big Sister to be) Stella loving her parents and awaiting the arrival of her new baby brother……..just see below and also check Maternity Collection

What should I wear for my photos?” I hear that question for almost every session! I offer different guides on clothing choices for high school seniors, child and family portraits to help them create the best look to suit their personalities. Today, I wanted to share a few ideas of inspiration for everyone. Family portraits which could be one of the the hardest times to coordinate clothing. Hopefully this information will make it super easy to pick your clothing!

 

For some visual inspiration, take a look at the outfits paired together below. If you have any questions about preparing for your portrait session let me know — we can work together to find clothing that your family looks their best in while being comfortable to create beautiful portraits.

Layering clothing is a fun way to add dimension and texture. Layering also works well to achieve multiple outfits in one session. You can add or remove pieces without doing a full clothing change! And don’t forget the accessories, they bring a look together. Use one or two accessories per person to complete an outfit and make it look polished.

I’m not talking matchy white shirts and jeans or navy polos and khakis, I want your family’s personality to show through in non-uniform and fun clothing choices! How? Pretend like you are creating one large outfit instead of trying to pair multiple outfits together. As silly as it sounds, imagine that all your clothing choices were somehow for one person. If that leaves you stumped, pick a patterned item for one person in your family (say a polka dot dress for your daughter) then select the rest of the family’s clothing from the colors within that first outfit.

As a senior photographer I usually I show up to a  photo session with a million props but this time, Royal Oak High School Senior Blake had it all! Basketball, Running gear, Football, Cap and gown, Homecoming sash, ribbons and more. Seriously this is one busy student. We had a great photography session and mom Jacki has so much to be proud of!

Had a great time photographing Mia’s High School Senior portraits in Downtown Detroit. She requested  an urban theme and wanted to really reflect the city she grew up in and loved. So has a photographer it was my mission to find just the right backdrop for her perfect session! Her proud mom came along and we had a great time. Just look at her below-  she is quite the model. She rocked her shoot! Congrats Mia on your upcoming graduation. Class of 2013 Yay! Check out a few of her photos.
