Ummmmm, it is February 2017 and I am JUST getting around to posting the absolute fantastic fun that the fall mini family sessions were in 2016.  Why so late?  The launch of Holly Davis Seniors is why!  I have loved every minute….screeeeech….OK not every minute, but all the minutes, hours, days, weeks and months all came together to bring me great joy.  Whew, that is much more realistic.  Check out all of these magnificent SMILES!

The Holly Davis Photography family mini-sessions are always a HOT commodity and they are snatched up so quickly.  Not only does this make my heart feel the love, I also get so excited that amidst the occasional chaos, LOVE is captured.  Smiling moms and dad, kids bouncing all around….it is fast and it is fun.  Why the studio this year?  Well, previous year’s have dealt it’s rainy hand which scatters the schedule in a million different directions.  Also, I wanted to offer a new look and option to my faithful clients that I get blessed to capture each and every year.  So, the plan for family mini sessions in Houston Texas, was put into place at Fill in the Blank Studio.

I know everyone is after the perfect image for their holiday cards, but I also aim to capture some of the in-between moments.  The ones that will tug on your heart as the years go by.  The moments that absolutely put your loving bonds in visual form.  Photographs are absolutely something that grows more valuable as the year’s go by.  What you appreciate today in an image will bring tears to your eyes down the road.  They are just one of your family legacies that will last for future generations.

How do you get in in the family mini-session fun?  Each year, I select a new location and send all of my treasure existing clients a VIP invite to sign-up prior to releasing the dates and times to new clients.  I typically announce on my Facebook and Instagram page alerting the fans/followers when to expect the live booking announcement for new clients.  What will 2017 be?  To be determined….ha!

Holly Davis Seniors is launching in The Woodlands, Texas!  Wowzers, I have been busy behind the scenes here at Holly Davis Photography!  As you know, I specialize in children, family and high school senior portraiture.  The three categories have always been presented together at Holly Davis Photography, but I just had a major tug on my heart to give my amazing seniors their own space within my brand. Soooooo…..(drumroll)……click the logo if you are ready for the FUN!

 

It has been a labor of love behind the scenes with the help of a fantastic web designer to get everything customized and the social media sites established.  OK y’all, I am old to be trying to run two sets of everything on the web, BUT it is to worth it to me.  The HDS senior experience deserves to be seen on it’s on, despite the followers missing out on seeing the adorably, cute babes and kids on my HDP feed.  Its pretty GORGEOUS as you can see on the senior side of life though.

Holly Davis Seniors pledge:  “We will work together to create a unified vision to capture the joy in your heart, your one of a kind beauty and the truly remarkable spirit within.  The photography, in the end, becomes a visual that becomes more and more valued with time.”  Join me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!

It’s beginning to look A LOT like Christmas!  Last week, I went out to a Christmas tree farm in The Woodlands, Texas (Old Time Christmas Tree Farm) with one GORGEOUS family!  Holy cow, wowzers, and any other description of utter jaw-dropping beautiful-ness!  Am I right or what?!?  They came dressed to thrill in sequins, tulle, pleats and tuxedos!  My heart was floored and I was over the moon excited.  As we entered the Christmas tree farm, all heads were turning.  The tree farm representative even deadpanned, “I take it they do not plan to cut down a tree tonight.”  Ha, not so much!

Now, now, before you wonder too long and ask….mom’s dress is from Hazel and Olive AND it is SMOKIN’ HOT! <3  The others in rich, vibrant tones and luxe textures, off-set with the classic tuxedo styling, pushed the glam up a notch while the golden sun outlined them each in stunning light.

Formal Wear?

So, this begs the question….should you go formal for family portraits?  Here is where my brain goes on the topic.  How often do you have family portrait sessions with a professional photographer?  Is your family naturally prone to be a bit formal, theatrical or have social occasions in which formal wear is worn?

If your family is tried and true most comfortable in jeans or sweatpants, it might come across almost like a costume if you all of a sudden jump to high glam styling.  It can translate to being unauthentic and frankly, the husband and kids might revolt and look awkward through the session. That is far from ideal for sure.  However, if dressing up for church, parties or other occasions isn’t too far fetched GO FOR IT!  You can have the more relaxed, cozy, casual session another time….let yourself shine and let he jaws drop!
