Dear Moms, This Post is For You
Monday, May 07, 2018
Personalized Branding Sessions Offered by Life in Pixels Photography

Dear moms, this post is for you - for the tired, worn out, scatterbrained women who rarely get the credit they deserve. Being a mom is a full-time job, and many of us work a second job on top of being a mom. We don't get time for ourselves, we don't get time to go to the bathroom, we don't get time to think, we just don't get time - ever.From the moment we decided to become mothers, it became about someone other than ourselves. It became about our children. They became our world. They became our everything. We capture moments of their lives every day- when they're playing on the playground, having a tickle fight with daddy, or finally getting along with their brothers and/or sisters. We capture it all.But what are we left with? We wind up with thousands and thousands of photographs of our children with other members of our family, and we get left behind because more often than not, we're the ones taking the pictures. So moms, please, I'm begging you. Prioritize yourself once in awhile. You don't want to look back on your life in ten years, looking through family albums and wondering why you are absent from all of the photographs. Ask dad to take the photos sometimes, and make it a habit to get a family portrait taken on a yearly basis. Because we all know that these days are fleeting, and they grow so fast. Don't look back on your life regretting what you didn't ...

What Does It Mean To Be a Professional Photographer?
Friday, May 04, 2018
Personalized Branding Sessions Offered by Life in Pixels Photography

The term "professional photographer" gets thrown around a lot, but what exactly does it mean? Recently I asked several people what they thought went into being a professional photographer. The answers included things like, "being paid to photograph a subject", "having knowledge of their industry", and "knowing how to take technically solid photographs".Are these answers bad? No. These are all parts of being a professional photographer, but they are only parts. What most people don't take into account are the business logistics that go into being a professional photographer.To be a professional photographer, one must also be a licensed business. This requires registering with your state and/or county. This means paying taxes on your income. This means (hopefully) having insurance in the event of an emergency. There are actual laws in place that professional photographers need to be following if they want to pursue this profession. In America, any individual making money from photography is subject to both state and federal income tax on an annual or quarterly basis. There are also state and local licenses that must be obtained to operate legally in your area. Being able to take a photograph and being a professional photographer are not the same thing. Anyone charging pennies for a photoshoot where the client receives all of the images is likely not abiding by the ...

The Passing of Time - Documenting the Little Things Through Photography

If you are a parent, you know how quickly time passes. You are holding your precious bundle of joy the day you give birth, then next thing you know, you are saying bye to them as you drop them off at preschool. You blink your eyes and they are graduating eighth grade. As badly as you want to freeze time, or even go back to when your little one was actually little, unfortunately that isn't how life works.That is what makes photography so very precious.While we may not be able to physically turn back the hands of time, photographs allow us to relive moments after they have passed. When you look at a photograph, it brings you into that moment- the moment the image was captured- and for a brief second, you get to treasure the time you can never get back.This is why what we do matters. This is what gives us so much joy with every session we capture, every client we book, every print we deliver. We give families the ability to treasure their past through tangible snapshots of precious moments.This is why we reiterate time and time again that professional photography shouldn't just be a once in a blue moon thing. Every single moment of your family's life together is precious, and deserves to be captured. Now, obviously it isn't realistic to hire a photographer to record your whole life, but it is realistic that once in awhile you can hire a photographer to just capture a day in the ...

Not Your Cookie Cutter Portrait Photographer

Here at Life in Pixels Photography, central NJ's premier boutique photography studio, we do much more for our clients than simply showing up for a shoot, taking the photographs, and then emailing or putting the captures up on some online gallery. We value our clients much more than that, and seek to turn every shoot we have into an experience right from the beginning.Unlike some, we make it a point to get to know our clients first through a free, in person consultation at our studio. This is important for a multitude of reasons--one of the most important being the time it allows us to familiarize ourselves with our clients, and thus go into the shoot with an individual strategy tailored specifically to the individual. This ensures not only that each client gets exactly what they are looking for, but that our work remains consistent without ever becoming stagnant. While we remain both photographers and artists, each individual client is the inspiration for our work. Therefore it is incredibly important to assess the needs, as well as the wants, of each individual client before every shoot. If we can go into a shoot knowing exactly what you are looking for, than we can not only deliver, but exceed everyone's expectations--and often even our own. If we know what you expect from us, this allows us to also push the boundaries of our own work. We are not afraid to step ...
