Brand New: “Not the Usual” School Portraits

A new school year is in session. It’s time for school pictures. Picture this scenario…

Typical school pictures:
Bland, boring backdrop that doesn’t match the outfit
Little Billy’s snack crumbs still on his face
A strand of Sally’s hair sticking wildly out of place
Frank’s red face from PE class which was right BEFORE pictures
That annoying cheesy fake smile from Lisa

Now picture this scenario…

“Not the Usual School Pictures” from Christy B Photography:
You choose from one of 20 custom backdrops that best matches the outfit
Fully retouched images to remove food crumbs, blemishes or whatever else may be found on a child’s face
Mom or dad present to perfect the hair/outfit prior to pictures
No PE class or recess to cause red faces
Patience and expertise to get that beautiful natural smile you know so well

So we ask you, why would you settle for those terrible pictures from the school? This is the ONE time of the year Christy B Photography offers print packages at reduced prices with NO session fee. This is your chance to get quality professional portraits of your school children at a very affordable price.  We also offer a variety of specialty products that can only be purchased during this time.  Give us a try and see the amazing difference in your child’s school photos. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Christy B Photography does NOT provide yearbook photos to the schools.  Your child MUST still be photographed at school to be included in the yearbook.  (You just don’t have to buy any prints from them if you don’t want to!)

Creating

Sometimes it’s good to take a break. Clear your mind. Try something different. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I put aside the editing and paperwork and started creating. I went back to where it all started and made some new hair accessories. I’ve had several inquiries as to whether I still make the hair bows. The answer is, YES, I do. I have some shown ONLINE. A more user friendly site with new items is on my “To Do List”. In the meantime, I do schedule appointments to view the items available or to place custom orders. Just CONTACT ME to schedule an appointment.

Final Round ~ Baby Show / Wee King & Queen Contest Images

Sadly, we have come to the final round of our baby show images.  I would like to thank all of the parents that stopped by and had their children’s photos taken. I had a blast photographing your adorable kids!

Just a reminder, the announcement of the winners will be this Saturday, July 17th at 11:00am at the Cass County Fairgrounds in the main pavilion. Best of luck to all of the contestants!

Now, on to the last few sneak peeks.  Look at that precious smile!

Photobucket

OOOOhhhh, is that not the cutest grin you have ever seen? 

Photobucket

How about this sweet smile?

Photobucket

And, this pretty smile. 

Photobucket

Wait!  Then there is this guy’s big grin. 

Photobucket

Now you know why I’m the photographer, not the judge.  I love them all!

Round 7 ~ Cass County Fair Baby Show / Wee King & Queen Contest

I’m kind of sad. We are getting close to the end of the baby show images. Here is round 7 of 8. Fortunately, there is no end to the cuteness.  Yes, I said “cuteness” again.  🙂

If I had to put my fortune teller skills to work, I would predict there is a future in modeling for this little sweetie. 

Photobucket

 He may have had a crab on his shirt, but he was anything but crabby.  Look at the sweet baby smile!  He is and always will be a charmer. 

Photobucket

Future dancer or singer, maybe?  Forever adorable. 

Photobucket

I could be wrong, but I detect a hint of orneriness in that smile.  Love it!

Photobucket

 Couldn’t you just squeeze her?  I see future teacher in her eyes. 

Photobucket

So sweet and innocent.  I predict she might become a lawyer.  With that sweet face, judges will believe anything she says.  How does it work on you, mom and dad? 

Photobucket

Enough of my fortune telling for now.  I’ll stick with the editing and get the final round of images up sometime tomorrow.

Round 6 ~ AM Baby Show Images

Here’s you fresh cup of cuteness to get you going this morning. I’m running out of adjectives to describe how adorable each child is.

Round ’em up cowboy. 

Photobucket

LOVE fine baby piggie tails!

Photobucket

What a cute smirk!

Photobucket

I’m a sucker for big brown baby eyes. 

Photobucket

This big girl was barely too old for the queen contest this year.  She was so proud of her new tennis shoes that we had to get a picture.

Round 5 ~ Baby Show Images

We’re halfway there. I’m having a great time going through all of the images from the Cass County Fair Baby Show / Wee King & Queen Contest.

How perfect is this dress for the Cass County Fair!?! Of course it wouldn’t be near as cute without the precious little girl wearing it.
Photobucket

Every year there is one child that is just too fast for me in the quick couple of minutes I have per child. This year, it was this little red head. Nothing was going to keep her from being on the go.
Photobucket

So cute! I love her “pose”.
Photobucket

Those cheeks! I just want to squeeze them.
Photobucket

For someone that can’t even walk yet, this little gal was fast. She looks so much like her momma.

Round 4 ~ 2010 Cass County Fair Baby Show / Wee King & Queen Contest

There’s no better way to start out a new day than with images of sweet little kiddos. I was lucky enough to photograph 40 of them over the weekend. It’s been a few days since I’ve reiterated this – I love my job!

Here is reason #1.  Tiny pierced ears and hot pink flowers galore. 

Photobucket

Reason #2 – bright blue eyes and frilly dresses.

Photobucket

Reason #3 – dimples!

Photobucket

Reason #4 – flawless skin and whispy pigtails.

Photobucket

Reason #5 – innocent angel eyes

Photobucket

I think you get the picture. I’m a pretty lucky girl to have such a wonderful job with such beautiful subjects!

2010 Baby Show ~ Round 3

 How about a PM edition of baby show images?  I just can’t stop myself.  Each one is just a cute as the next. 

This little girl had her tongue out like this in every picture.  I think it is adorable. 

Photobucket

This handsome little guy knows how to turn on the charm.  Melt my heart.  

Photobucket

Pretty pink preciousness!

Photobucket

Oh my gosh!  Another handsome little man with a killer smile. 

Photobucket

I. Can’t. Take. It. Adorable!

Photobucket

We’re just getting started, friends.  Keep checking back for more.
