Twins!! Finally a brother came for the 3 sisters...and he brought another brother with him!

5 kids...whew! But I'll tell ya, they are all adorable :)


Three little girls became big sisters to these 2 gorgeous boys 12 days before they made their appearance at my studio. I bet there is one proud Daddy in that household! Congratulations on your twins, and thanks for letting me photograph them. I really enjoyed this session.

The Sleepy Baby Experience is coming to Myrtle Beach.....It's kind of a BIG DEAL :)

Here's a little note from the photographers that put on the workshop:

The Sleepy Baby
An Intimate Newborn Posing Experience
By Pumpkin Pie Photography and Son Kissed Photography
Hosted by: Lindsey Mills Photography

When is it? September 16-17, 2011
Where is it? Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (in a gorgeous, spacious natural light studio)
Who should come? Photographers wanting to take their newborn photography to the next level. You should be comfortable shooting in manual on a DSLR camera and have some basic knowledge of Photoshop CS3 or higher. And we also recommend bringing a 50mm lens to the class.

What’s the investment? $1700.00
What’s included? Two fabulous days of learning in a very small group setting…. Catered lunch, snacks and drinks both days. Plus lots of goodies and prizes from our sponsors!

How do I register? Registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. You may e-mail thesleepybaby@yahoo.com to register. A non-refundable deposit of $850 is due at the time of registering. The remaining tuition is due on or before July 7, 2011. Payments may be made via check or Paypal (if paying by Paypal, the Paypal fee will be added to the deposit amount). The deposit must be received within 48 hours of registration to confirm your spot.

The Sleepy Baby will be a very special newborn photography learning experience and will be hosted by Amanda Cutler of Pumpkin Pie Photography and Kristen Mackey of Son Kissed Photography. We will be shooting in a beautiful and spacious natural light studio in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The experience at Myrtle Beach will be limited to 9 photographers in order to keep it intimate and very comprehensive for each student. We are excited about this new joint venture and think having two teachers with two business models, two styles will allow you a really unique and awesome learning opportunity. Teaching is a passion for both of us and we want this to be a memorable, growing and rewarding experience where we can build a strong relationship with you during your time with us.

This will be a 2-Day experience and will focus on natural light newborn photography. During the two days we will cover:

Working with natural light for newborns
Perfecting your newborn posing
Soothing and comforting newborns
Proper exposure for your newborn images
Finding the right shooting angles to showcase the pose and baby
Choosing the right set ups and props
Post processing of newborn images
Marketing, pricing and business discussion
and surely so much more!

And of course this will be a portfolio building time for you too; however and most importantly, our priority is to teach you how to have a successful newborn session at home or in your studio. We will take great time in explaining and detailing each pose so that you can go home and use this knowledge right away! We want to teach you, our peers, and have you walk away feeling inspired, full of new knowledge, confidence and ready for some babies!

Once the class is full we will forward a detailed agenda along with airport information and hotel recommendations.

Is there anyone who cannot attend? Sadly, because we will be sharing very openly about our posing, processing and even business practices, marketing and pricing… this experience is not being offered to those residing or doing business within a 60 mile radius of zip codes 75078, 74134 and 29588.

Upon registration please forward your website information along with the city/state/country you operate your business.

We are super excited and cannot wait to meet all of you!
Amanda & Kristen

The Meyer/Plue Wedding_April 17, 2011

What a unique wedding this was today...


Mandy & Trey said "I do" on a perfect Sunday afternoon. They worked so hard at making this wedding unique in so many ways....they had the best ideas, and the cutest ceremony & reception I've ever seen.


The day took place at the Cooper House, in Socastee, South Carolina.


Trey wore his Army Dress Uniform and looked very handsome, if I say so myself. Mandy looked stunning in a beautiful dress and the greatest shoes I've ever seen in my life! 


I took a lot of pictures of the details at this wedding, since the couple put so much time into making them so special.


This wedding felt like it had a southern/vintage twist to it....and I tried to reflect that in their images. I hope you like them!

Introducing...The LMP Kid Plan!

As most of you know, I've had a "Sweet Baby Plan" for over a year now, and it's been a HUGE success! I have absolutely loved watching the tiny babies that I photographed at just a few days old grow into the precious toddlers that they are today! 


But, it's been too hard to not see them every 3 months like I used to :( I know they must miss me too *wink* so.....I asked myself..."Why just have a plan for babies? Why not offer a plan for big kids too?" 


I am going to start out with allowing 10 kids to join the plan, just like I have 10 babies on the baby plan...So sign up fast, before all the spots are gone! 


Details Below... to join the plan, email me at LindseyMillsPhotography@Gmail.com...and if you know of another big kid, or a mom expecting soon, let them know about my plans too! If they join and mention your name, I'll give you a FREE gift! 



The LMP Kid Plan...  


(for ages 1 year-10years)


10 kids will be allowed to sign up for the plan, first come, first serve...once the spots are filled, your child can still be photographed of course, you will just need to set up for an appointment as usual. I will start a waiting list, and if a child drops out of the plan, I will contact the next on the list to join.


Here's what the kid plan will offer...


A 1 hour Session to kick off your plan including a high resolution CD PLUS 8 wallets & a customized calendar to keep up with your sessions...for only $150 (a $475 value)


Every 3 months, starting in May, 2011...I will have a "Kid Club" exclusive mini session day, at different locations each time...these sessions will be themed, and I will announce the theme, one month before the date. These sessions will also include a high resolution CD PLUS 16 wallets each time, for only $100 (a $375 value)


*You do not have to attend these sessions, however they are for kid club members only, and will not be rescheduled.


For Every Birthday that your child is on the plan, they will receive a Birthday Session at a location of your choice...including a Birthday Party Invitation Template on a CD with 4 of your favorite images, and 16 wallets, for only $100 (a $225 value)


Kid Club Members will be responsible for scheduling their own appointments and keeping their appointments, if you miss more than 2 scheduled appointments, you will be removed from the plan. 


To join the plan there is a $50 annual membership charge...to be paid when you sign up. You will receive a membership card, and be asked to choose a date for your very first session. Your membership will then be good for a year, and you will not have to renew your plan until 1 year after your joining date.


Baby Plan Members will automatically be switched from the baby plan to the kid plan after their final 12 month session!


Siblings can join for $25 per year!  


To join, email me at LindseyMillsPhotography@Gmail.com!

The Payne/Cook Wedding_April 9, 2011

Christina Cook said "I Do" to her true love Brian Payne on April 9th, 2011 at 4:00pm. The two wed at Belin Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina which almost had every pew in the church filled. 


The wedding could not have gone any better, the weather was great, the rain held off until the couple was in the car, leaving the reception.


I can't help but to laugh when I think about what happened during the ceremony, and I think everyone that was there will always remember the moment...The couple had exchanged rings and said their vows, the pastor prayed and when he said "Amen" Brian went in for the kiss! Christina hesitated and the church filled with laughter. It was such a great moment!


Not too much longer and Brian got to kiss his wife, and then we headed to a beautiful reception at Atalaya Castle. 


The dancing was very entertaining and the Ntranze Band had the party going until the Forest Ranger made them pack up and leave. 


Christina I'm so happy for you, I know you are more than excited to be a newlywed, and it has been my pleasure to get to know Brian over the past few months. I wish you two so much happiness, thank you for letting me be a part of your wonderful day!

The Dill/Lewis Wedding_April 2, 2011

What a beautiful day for a wedding!


On April 2, 2011 Christy Lewis & Robby Dill tied the knot at Debordieu Colony, in Georgetwon, South Carolina. 


These two were High School sweethearts, and their wedding day was a fairytale dream!


Christy looked amazing as she walked down the isle on her father's arm, and seeing her groom for the first time that day was a bit of a surprise for her...


Robby had secretly worn his Marine Corp dress uniform, without telling Christy, because he knew she would be just as surprised to see him standing there in that, as he would be to see her in her gown walking towards him. The moment was spectacular! I'm so happy I could be there for it!


I can't wait to get started on the video that I am going to give to the newlyweds...I videoed parts of the day, and I can't wait to show off the gorgeous images I captured, not to mention the laughs they will share when they see the pictures of their friends and family dancing the night away at what was a fantastic reception! Mr. Joe Durivage from Myrtle Beach DJ's kept the party hopping!


Good Luck with the rest of your lives Mr. & Mrs. Dill!

Uhm, can we say GORGEOUS?

In March, I got together with an upcoming wedding planner, Morgan, a boutique store, Bijuju...and a hair & make-up artist Jessica...from Dulce Lusso. (All located at The Market Common, where my studio is.)


We dolled up a beautiful Bride, Christy...and had a lot of fun with a fashion filled day of modeling in my studio.


This was probably one of my favorite photoshoots I've ever done! I'm so pleased with how the images turned out.


 


Christy was married on April 2, 2011 and I photographed her wedding. I will post a sneak peek of her wedding day, and her actual bridal portraits when she returns from her honeymoon.

2 Goldfish + Swim Suits + Flippers = Fun for 4 kids!

Just for fun we decided to do something out of the ordinary for our kids...but of course, I had to take pictures while we did it! They had a blast...you can't tell from the pictures, because I edited each of them...but, the floor was soaking wet, where they sitting, because little Tanner wouldn't keep his hands out the fish bowl! It's amazing how 2 little goldfish in a bowl will surprise 4 kids so much...you should have seen the smiles on their faces when they saw them! 


I have a lot of ideas like these for "themed sessions" this Summer. I'm getting bored with just everyday sessions, so if you are interested in adding a little twist to your kid's session, please let me know!
