Closest to the pin. - Orlando child photographer

We have been waiting for this day for a LONG time.  This is the day we can finally call this 5 year old piggy bank FULL.  We have been very close to this day for a while.... yet could still squeeze in coins.  Not ready. 

So today we purged  this bank.  It was HEAVY.  In fact, my son hasn't been able to pick it up solo for months.  This sucker contained 12 dollar bills, 2 rubber bands, 1 silly band, 2 candy wrappers and countless coins. 

Wanna play a game???  and win a prize??   Guess the weight of his piggy bank.  Easy enough, right?  Closest to the pin wins a 30 minute session and a $50 print credit.  Only 1 guess per person per day.  Have fun!  Contest ends this Wednesday at noon EST.  I will post the weight and the winner later that afternoon.

1.  Leave a nice little comment here on this blogpost.
2.  Go to my Shannon Littrell Photography fan page (if you haven't done so already, go ahead and like me)  
3.  Leave your answer under the blog contest post  (1 guess per person, per day)
4.  Cross your fingers to be the lucky winner :)

I wonder how much money is in here...  perhaps another contest next week???   ;)

Have fun.

What should we wear for our portrait session??? Central Florida family photographer

I get this question from 90% of my clients before their photo sessions.  Especially family sessions.

The answer is simple, sort of.

1.  Wear clothing that represents YOU, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR STYLE. 

2.  I say. "If I do MY job right, no one will notice what you are wearing in the image."  I stand by this statement.

3.  Should we match?  Matching is fine.... but coordinating is GLORIOUS!

4.  Avoid big characters or logos which draw the eye away from your darling kiddos face. 

5.  Pick one piece of clothing (usually for Mom) and coordinate around it. 

6.  People feel more relaxed in casual attire.... and their photos reflect this.  (HINT HINT) 

Below are some of my favorite Children's Apparel Sources

Happy Shopping!

New Smyrna Beach Photographer

The end of summer is drawing near.  We spent most of our summer on the coast and loved every minute of it.  These images are of my sister's children... LOVE THEM.  Impromptu drive to NSB to get these kids some sandy feet (they live in New Mexico... so I find this comment funny).  Anyway, here is my friendly reminder to savor the last days of summer!  Fall is just around the corner....  time to start scheduling your holiday photo sessions (HINT HINT).

Hubba Hubba... I mean Happy Birthday - Orlando budoir photographer

This session was a 50th Birthday gift for her husband..... he was DELIGHTED!  Who wouldn't be??  I'm no rocket scientist... but I say, this is a gift that keeps on giving!  Ladies, I'll be waiting by the phone ;)
Don't be shy.  We had a BLAST and made one man VERY happy.   

ps. There were MANY more great images....  however, I am unable to share them (I hope you understand).

Not your average newborn images..... ;) Orlando Newborn photographer

Whenever driving, my husband's eyes are on not on the road, but on 957 *other* things.  It totally makes me nervous and crazy.  Finally... all of his "rubbernecking" paid off!    He spotted this manatee and newborn calf in a small creek!    SCORE!!  Of course, he doubled back to nab these cute pics!  In fact, he called me to boast that he had just finished up his first newborn session!  HA!  These images are not mine....  but hubby doesn't have a snazzy little watermark :).  Thanks babe, for capturing these images and allowing me to share them!  You're the best!

Fast and Furious -Orlando child photographer

Still enjoying summer here in the Littrell Family.  This week was spent with my sister and her 2 children.  Hadn't seen them in 2 years and WOW it is AMAZING how fast my niece and nephew are growing up.  My nephew couldn't seem to "grasp" the Aunt Shannon concept and called me Grandma the whole trip.  I found it to be funny.... so it stuck.  We took a ton of photos at the beach (will post them later)........  but for now, enjoy the images of our trip to the local icon known as Lil 500 .  It was my little man's first time driving SOLO and he LOVED every minute of it!!!
