Looking for a perfect venue, why not check out the Historic Heitman House located in Downtown, Ft.

This past October their wedding was held at the Heitman House in Downtown Ft. Myers, Fl. It is a gorgeous location right on the water with an extraordinary dock.  Its an older home that has lots of character and makes for a gorgeous back drop for any image. The bride and groom chose to go with a rustic theme and chose a gorgeous purple color. They also added in some personal touches, like their cake topper that was the couples dogs and said “we do too”. The great thing about the Heitman House is that its so versatile. It can be done up for an extravagant glam wedding, or toned down for a laid back outdoor affair.  It easily can be charming to any bride that visits. This Heitman House Rustic Weddjng was one of our favorites to shoot.

The couple decided to have their ceremony right before sunset on the edge of the water. It made for the perfect backdrop to their romantic ceremony. Later the couple took their reception to the lawn of the Heitman House for a gorgeous dinner under the stars. The October weather here in southern Florida made for a perfect evening. The Gorgeous Bride stole the show this night, and I don’t think anyone minded. Before the ceremony the couple decided to do a first look, which is where they have a private moment to see each other all dressed up before they say “I Do”. It makes for a more relaxed ceremony and most couples say it makes them not as nervous. This first look was one of our favorites, couples like this make our jobs that much easier. Congratulations again!

During the holiday season many families are preparing by buying presents, tress and wrapping paper. Another event that they usually plan for are  Christmas pictures with the whole family. Trying to perfect the most coordinated outfits for everyone and figuring out the perfect poses and places to shoot. Most families dread the holiday photography sessions because they can be stuffy and uptight and no one has any fun because the session is too structured. Why not add a little character and fun into your pictures with playful sessions that let your families true personalities shine through. Instead of posing next to trees and presents, why not try Christmas pillows and holiday themed banners, or even using Christmas pajamas instead of fancy clothes. It can be hard to get kids, especially younger ones to stay interested long enough to get those good shots, but with playful sessions you can let the little ones enjoy themselves and have fun playing with props and acting natural. A lot 0f the time the best shots happen when you least expect it, usually when the children are the most relaxed. Anything goes in these Christmas Mini sessions. If you can think it up we can most likely make it happen and make you happy. This Christmas season consider a playful Christmas mini session to capture your families holiday spirit.

Christmas Mini Sessions

We will be doing Christmas Mini Sessions at Studio Four, on December 6th & 7th, 2014. Sessions will include 30 minutes of shooting and a 8×10 print of  your choice.

Newborn Safety 101

Keeping the smallest of clients safe

 Most people don’t know just how much work goes into a newborn photography session. A lot of client don’t know or understand the safety precautions that need to be done during the session in order to keep the babies safe. Lots of holding, fixing, adjusting and propping up goes on to keep the babies from being injured. Countless hours can go into figuring out new ways to keep newborn clients safe. Whether it be using bean bags and blankets to prop them up, or having a parents hand wrapped in material to conceal that they are actually holding baby tightly.

Newborn safety 101

Here is just a few examples I found while searching popular newborn safety articles on pinterest.Newborn safety 101

There is so much to keeping a baby safe that new photographers haven’t been taught or do not think of.  Some see amazing photographs online and think that they were taken as they see them. Newborn Safety is the most important thing, it comes way before a great photograph. You can not expect an amazing photo to not have any extra work put into it. Let’s face it, newborns can be wiggle worms and the last thing any photographer would want is to injure the most precious client. Newborn safety 101 classes are great for any level of photographer looking to make sure that client safety is at the top of their list.

Newborn safety 101

Luckily the amazing Charlyne of Charlyne Lees Photography and Studio Four have teamed up to offer a Newborn Safety 101 course. Open to the public, anyone from a beginner wanting to start out or an experienced photographer wanting to get into newborn photography is welcome to attend. It will be held October 11, 2014 at Studio Four in Cape Coral, Fl from two to three thirty pm. If you are interested in this class please email studio four at studiofourcapecoral@gmail.com as seats are limited.

LadyCakes – Southwest florida baker

Brand new store front bakery

Bess Charles, owner of LadyCakes Bakery has opened a new store front location in southwest florida. Specializing in celebration cakes such as weddings, birthdays, retirements and baby shower.

LadyCakes - Southwest Florida Baker

 

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your background.

- I have been self taught in cake decorating and we have come up with all our recipes from scratch after much trial and error. LadyCakes began as just a hobby but as time went on a passion grew. When I talked to my husband and quitting his job and becoming the baker, he was completely on board and this is where LadyCakes really took off. We have been operating out of our home for about 4 years and then once we were licensed switched to a commercial kitchen. With many dedicated followers we have progressed into a beautiful storefront and the rest is history.

2. Where does the name lady cakes come from?

-LadyCakes originally was thought of because of our daughter. When she was little we would call her ladybug. But who wants to think about ladybugs while thinking about cake.. so we then turned it into LadyCakes.

3. What advice would you give to someone looking to start a career or business as a baker?

-It’s hard work, a consistent push to the finish line that never comes. If you have passion and dedication you will do just fine.

4. Tell us a little about your new store front location.

-Our new store is located at 2924 Del Prado Blvd South, Unit 7 in Cape Coral. We are just past the St. Andrews Church heading towards Cape Coral Pkwy, on the right. Stop by and see us.

5. Whats one thing you would tell a client when they are looking into a professional cake baker to make a cake for their special occasion?

-Do your research! Read reviews and look at their past work. There are many bakers out there that proclaim they are the best.. but deliver sub-par work.
