My Top 5 Tips for Better iPhone Images
{All these images were taken on my iPhone 6 or 7}

     It’s no secret I LOVE taking pictures.  I take a ton of pictures each year (Seriously, I take thousands of pictures from my phone.) and I love when images pop up in the app’ time-hop’ a year later. {Get that app if you don’t have it already!}  I don’t tend to keep my big bulky cameras out so I try to get awesome phone pictures. I use 5 simple steps to help me do that and I thought you’d like to know also!

So here goes:

 

1.  Clarity is key!  This is the #1 thing I see!  I’ve been guilty of hazy pictures because I didn’t take the 1 second to wipe the lens off before snapping a really cute picture. You’d be surprised the difference this can make!

 

 

2: Focus on what matters! Make sure you’ve got your subject in focus. Did you know that you could tell your phone what to focus on?  Just tap the screen where your subject is!

 

 

3: Exposure is important! Simply touching your screen on either a bright or dark spot in your image will change the exposure of the image?  Example: Too dark, touch a darker part of your subject and the exposure should automatically adjust the light for you.

 

 

4.  Let there be light!  Put your subject close to a window if inside or where the sun shines on them if your outside. This creates amazing shadows or beautiful sun flare. Too much sun flare in your image?  Just change your angle a bit!

 

 

5. Create heirlooms!  You’re not going to be saving your old iPhone for your kids to look through in 25 years!  {Think floppy disks, cassette tapes and now Cd’s and disks!} You will however save a printed picture or photo book of their first steps or them playing the lead in the school play. So PRINT those images. Download apps that make it easy and then set a date to print your favorites once a month!  I like Mpix app or chat books.

 

 

Hopefully these tips can help you document your days. Pictures can be your most precious possession after a time or season of life has past.

Much love and happy picture taking! ❤️

Going on 10+ years of Friendship with this family and I’m lucky enough to photograph all their most special moments!  Here are a ‘few’ of my favorites from their most recent session!

Want to hear the amazing review that was sent to us after their session?

HOW CAN I CHOOSE!? I can’t, because every single picture is absolutely amazing. DeAnna is the most chill, fun and “let’s do something unique” photographer there is. She is the only one I trust to photograph my family because I know the pictures I receive are the most beautiful moments of the session. She just captures moments that I honestly don’t think of and for that, I am so grateful to her. Now I have memories of a lifetime to cherish, hang in my house and share with family & friends. Love you DeAnna, you’re a beautiful, genuine, loving wife, mother and friend! You have a crazy talent and a sharp eye for capturing the most beautiful moments in life!

Thanks, Friend for those amazing words!  XOXO

I got to photograph this sweet girls older sister just a few short years ago!  Therefore I was THRILLED when I got the email about Rynlee being on the way and needing a session.  Mom said, you choose all the colors and props!!!!  So I went with my favorite color white!  LOL  I did incorporate a few props we used at big sisters newborn session also.  We did half the session in the Studio and the other half at their Horse Ranch in Lavon!  We got the most amazing sunsets for those and I can’t wait to share those next!  Enjoy a few of my favorites from Rynlee’s Newborn session for now!  ~xo

I’ve been so excited to take these newborn pictures for about 9 months!  I was so excited to find out this guy was on the way!  We got to incorporate several meaningful things into this session but I love the nod to his late Granddad the most!

Fresh 48 sessions take place in those first 48 hours after a baby is born and while still in the hospital.  I was so fortunate to be able to be able to go only a short distance this time to TMC Hospital in Denison and capture sweet little Eli at only ONE day old!  {Usually I’m driving to Mckinney or Plano Texas!}  Eli’s parents commented on how different he already looked from his Fresh 48 session to his newborn session.  They change so quickly and if you’re like me you want to remember and preserve every single moment and detail!

My goal for 2020 is to post as many sessions as I can somewhere on Social Media!  So, here is one of the first sessions I’ve done this year.  I love seeing how much and how fast babies change from their newborn session.  Harper didn’t disappoint with her sweet expressions and her love for cake and donuts…  Therefore, we had the perfect session resulting in perfect images!!!  Absolutely love these and her.  ~XO

This family/Birthday session was so fun!  We played, laughed, ate cookies and had the best time!  Sweet families like this make my heart so happy!  I’m so thankful to have been along to capture their family journey from the very beginning!  {I was the first person to know what they were having with both babies!}  It’s amazing to be trusting with such important things.  Here are a few of my favorites and I think there were close to 200 images in their gallery so it was extremely hard to narrow down!  Enjoy.

Ben was a little shy in the beginning of his birthday session but his big brothers saved the day!  Look how they love him!  I love this sweet family and love that I’ve taken two of their newborn sessions and all three of their first birthday sessions!  {I’ve also included a side by side from Bens newborn session…  Make sure you see that at the bottom of this post!}

I don’t normally blog mini sessions because there are sooo many but plan on trying to share more!  This years summer mini session line up was amazing and I had so much fun!  This is the second year I’ve offered fishing in the creek mini’s and they all were adorable!  I loved each and every session.  This one included.  This is Judd.  I had the honor of capturing his parents wedding one foggy New Years and then his newborn session a few years later.  It’s a true joy to capture so many important milestones for people!
