The Stand in Baby Comes to Life in Pixels!

Its only June 17th but it feels like October with how busy we've been here at Life in Pixels! We thought it would be nice to update our clients and prospective clients with a monthly recap/outline of what is going on each month at Life in Pixels, so from now on, we will be posting one blog post a month, usually towards the middle of the month, covering what we've already done and what we still have ahead. Hope you enjoy!June for Life in Pixels Photography Studio:Sitters and Newborn Model Call- After we attend workshops or classes, we always like to hold small model calls to practice our techniques and hone them further. This month, AJ attended a lighting a workshop, and I attended a wrapping workshop, so we decided to hold a model call for sitters and newborns so that we could combine what we learned and put it into practice. Education is EXTREMELY important to us, and we try to go to as many workshops as possible- not only for our benefit, but for yours!Biz Fest- On June 14th, we had the honor of being a vendor at the Somerset County Business Partnership's annual BizFest. This is the county's largest business expo, and over 500 people attended the event at The Imperia in Somerset. It was a ton of fun. We got to network with fellow businesses, meet new clients, and even ran into some current clients!Unique Workshop- This month AJ had the opportunity to attend a workshop at a ...

Newborn and Sitters Model Call

The Stand in Baby Comes to Life in Pixels!

Attention Parents: Life in Pixels Photography Studio is holding a model call!Recently we attended a lighting workshop geared towards techniques ideal for infants and young children, and whenever we go to these types of workshops, we like to hold model calls to practice the techniques and put them into action. It gives us a chance to fine tune our skills, improve our work, and meet more wonderful clients!Because of the nature of the workshop we attended, we are looking for newborns, as well as infants between 3 months and 1 year who are sitting but not yet walking (standing is okay). We will be working on various posing and lighting techniques during the session, different things depending on the child's age.We would never ask our clients to give us their time without repaying them in some way, so as compensation, any model chosen will receive a complimentary 8"x10" print with the matching digital file.If your child (or expectant child) falls into either of the categories we are looking for for this particular model call, please fill out this form and we will be in touch!Feel free to browse the attached portraits to check out some work from our last model call!

Last year our workshops were a huge hit, and because of this we have planned even more fun and exciting opportunities for photography enthusiasts to expand their knowledge and fine tune their photography skills.Our first workshop for 2018 is this Saturday, March 26th, and is an Introductory DSLR Photography workshop. It will take place at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater, starting at 5:30pm. Like always, pre-registration is required due to a limited number of spaces at our workshop. Our intro workshop covers the basics of digital photography, and is a great foundation for anyone thinking about attending our more advanced workshops.

Even if you have been shooting for awhile, this workshop can be a great refresher course.The next workshop on our schedule is June 2nd, and will be held at our studio in Bridgewater.

Using Model Calls as Continuing Education
Sunday, May 20, 2018
The Stand in Baby Comes to Life in Pixels!

In the beginning of the year, we attended a workshop where we learned new lighting and posing techniques. This is something we try to do several times every year- pursue continuing education opportunities to advance our photography skills. The last thing we would ever want is for our work to become stagnant, which is why education is imperative in our profession.Something we have started to do though to continue practicing our skills after each workshop is utilizing model calls to test out the new methods we have learned, and to become more comfortable with them in our own studio.Most recently, we practiced new lighting techniques while holding a children's model call. In exchange for their time and participation, we gave each model an 8"x10" print with the corresponding digital file, and in return, we got to practice our new skills.It is truly rewarding to see our skills grow throughout the model call process- all while being able to reward new clients with beautiful portraits of their family.Our goal as a studio is to attend four educational workshops or classes every year, which means you can expect to see four model calls per year from us on average. These are great opportunities to try our studio out, see how we work, and see if we may be a good fit for you. If you are interested in learning more about our model calls, be sure to fill out our contact us page so that ...
