Because when I turn clients into friends, then they refer me to friends, it’s like there are just more friends in my world. So I hung out with these guys on a Saturday morning… and like I say “sometimes a Saturday morning with your family is a heck of a lot easier than a Saturday morning with mine.” So easy, laid back and fun. And the best part is, they are expecting number three (I love a 0, 2, 4 combo… nice and spaced, boy, girl, and up for grabs!). So I get to come back and see them again. And when I do, I want to take some shots of their AWESOME wine wall, because they have really made some extraordinary, yet amazingly clean and simple, choices in their home renovations! Kids were divine, parents were all you could hope for. I am so excited to see their prints on their walls!
This is also the client that I tried to get in touch with while in Santa Ynez. It went like this “Hi, it’s….static static… disconnect” about 4 times, then about 3 texts, then a repeat of the static three times, then an “I’ll call you from Santa Barbara” text, then another disconnect going through the pass, then a stop at Starbucks to try to connect, two more texts, then a call from a backyard in Southern California where I came :::::this close:::: to getting disconnected again. I am SO fortunate my clients deal with me and my mishaps!
So it’s a large share, because I felt like I hadn’t shared an “in home” session in a while since I cut over my new site. Enjoy!
It’s here! My first studio magazine of 2013! I am so excited to share with you what’s going on with Kristina Young Photography this winter. With Seniors not quite ready for me, and family sessions slim through the cold weather, it’s time to really focus on newborns and babies as there’s no “season” for them (unless you count 9 months from a major blackout or storm!). This was such an exciting adventure for me… no doubt I blew off a lot of current work to stare at older images, and I literally had to narrow down from hundreds, so in most instances I decided to use what was on my laptop hard drive and make it work, otherwise I would have been lost in archives for days! With the exception of one page, every last bit of content and design came from inside my head, and my heart. Which leads me to my next point, which is really intentioned for fellow photographers
It is with both pride, and hesitation, that I publicly publish this magazine. Pride because I worked so hard to create the content from what is inside my head, that I have learned from experience, and walking the mile.
But with hesitation as on more than one occasion, content I have published — from my Investment Page to my About Me to my general Style wording to even session flow — has been copied directly (or slightly modified) on to other people’s websites. I’ve had photographers pose as clients and gain access to my private client site. And while that is completely wrong, and even illegal in some instances, mostly it is just upsetting to me as I openly share as much information about my work, my processes and my experiences with almost anyone who asks (within reason).
If you choose to copy my work (text and images) from this guide, you will be in violation of my copyright, which has been submitted for this entire magazine, as it has been for my website and my Seniors magazine. I will contact PPA and my attorneys. More important, I will be incredibly disappointed and share your actions with the supportive and amazing photographic community I am honored to be a part of. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you would like to create something like this, but are at a loss as to how to start, I might recommend using Design Aglow’s Luxe Studio Magazine. It’s a tremendous resource to get your wheels turning and to help you produce something elegant in a short amount of time.
