Senior Portraits for Rowers

Taking this high school seniors pictures was a boat load of fun. The sunset was amazing on Madison, Wisconsin’s Mendota Lake at the Mendota Rowing Club to make this a memorable senior portrait that will be cherished for years to come. Love this rowing so much I had to use it in some advertising for Madison, Wisconsin high school seniors graduating in the class of 2020. Book your session today!

#BiebsMeetAly represents Hope & Courage

It amazes me to see so many join the #BiebsMeetAly campaign which started when a brave young lady battling cancer stated a wish to a few friends, one being my daughter:)  Her friends immediately began to brainstorm on how they could make this wish come true.  You might have guessed it, she wished to meet Justin Bieber which is where #BiebsMeetAly comes in.  One tweet lead to thousands, which led to local Wisconsin celebrities like Donald Driver joining in to help make this Christmas Wish come true.  After learning that Justin Beiber will be on The Ellen Degeneres Show next week, the #BiebsMeetAly camapaign got kicked into high gear.  WKOW Channel 27 also jumped in to help and invited the girls to their television station to help spread the word to the local Madison community.  Thank you to all that have tweeted #BiebsMeetAly or posted on their #BiebsMeetAly Facebook Wall.  It amazes me what a simple tweet can do; give hope, admire courage, showcase what a community can do to help another’s dream come true.

Who says you need a pool full of water to make this swimmers senior pictures rock!

She loves to swim.  She brought her goggles and suit to the photoshoot but we were not near a pool.  No worries, we found this awesome backdrop that was perfect even without the water. to reserve your senior portrait session for 2013.  608-215-0047.

Some of my favorite 2012 Senior Pictures

Summer equals Fun outside…  For me it means Fun Outdoor Senior Pictures!

It is always so much fun photographing high school seniors.  Pictures that I know they will treasure for a life time.  Capturing them and often them doing something they have loved their entire childhood.  It is so much fun to see them get as excited about my senior portraits as I am.  Hoping to bring a tear to parents when they get their first set of senior pictures mailed to them.  I hope that the experience I offer is enjoyed as much as the senior portraits.  Let’s face it, it is not like the senior pictures that many parents grew up knowing.  So adding to the experience of the senior portrait session is so important to K Jay Photos.  Watching them walk away smiling and so often hearing seniors state “that was fun!”  Even the ones that were not looking forward to having their senior pictures taken.  That’s our goal.  Quality seniors and a fun experience.  I hope you enjoy some of our favorites also shown here:

Newborn Portraits. Treasure their little hands and feet.

K Jay Photography, Madison, specializes in newborn portraits capturing their little hands and feet in precious newborn portraits to cherish a lifetime.

  • We have several unique newborn hats, props to use in your newborn portraits.
  • We like to create a plan before your baby is even born, have you send a picture of your nursery and then contact us right after delivery.  An ideal time to photograph your newborn baby is within the first week.  After two weeks of age it becomes more difficult to capture the precious sleeping baby pictures that so many new parents treasure.
  • We encourage parents to bring along things that have meaning (a favorite blanket or blanket that the grandmother knitted or a baby bracelet, something that has meaning).   We have plenty of things though so do not feel like you need to bring anything.

What to expect during your newborn portrait session.  

  • We will touch base with you a day or two before the newborn photo shoot.

  • Recap some of the props we will use, set the exact time which often is based on the babies schedule and ask you to bring the baby hungry.
  • Before we begin photographing your newborn, we will dress the baby for their first round of pictures before they eat.  Then when they are deep asleep we will begin photographing the baby, changing the props, backgrounds and hats/accessories as often as the little one will allow us:)
  • We usually end with family photos and the baby in your arms for final shots with Mom and Dad if you desire.   Our black background is very popular for this newborn portrait.  Plan on dressing in either black or white as then your family portraits can easily be turned into beautiful black and white newborn pictures.  Also, dress light as the environment we photograph your newborn in is very toasty which helps the baby sleep especially during Wisconsin winters:)
  • Your portraits will be uploaded within a few days to a private password protected personal webpage for you to share with family and friends.  You can order high quality prints from this page at very affordable pricing and download your favorite pictures to save for years to come.
When to reserve your newborn portrait session?
  • Before you go to delivery so we can let you know what our schedule looks like and plan on your estimated arrival date.
Custom Newborn Announcements.
  • We will utilize your favorite baby pictures and create a newborn announcement for you for free.   They can then be ordered online for $1.25/each which includes a 4×8 custom birth announcement and envelope.  They take approximately 3-5 days to print and ship to your home address.

What to wear for your senior pictures.

Be yourself.  Dress comfortable for some shots and maybe bring the suit or prom dress for a more formal shot that Grandparents will enjoy.  We do not charge extra for change of clothing, so bring as many different outfits as you desire and we can help you pick out the best options for you.  Wear colors that compliment your skin tone, eye color and hair.  Avoid loud patterns when possible as we want the focus to be on you not your clothes in most cases, except for of course those more formal shots.  For more tips on what to wear to your K Jay Photography senior portrait session, click here.

Family Portrait with everyone in it!

This can be a challenging task since everyone does not always live in the same town, have the same schedule or be available at the same time.  K Jay Photography offers a solution for the busy family in need of an extended family portrait.  Large family group portraits are now available, where we can photograph each family at a different time or even a different date!  That’s right, look at this four family portrait where each of the four families were photographed at a different time!  No kidding!  More large family portrait information, click here

Covered bridge

We recently photographed the covered bridge, often used as a backdrop for family portraits and seniors pictures, after the last snow fall here in Madison, Wisconsin.  A beautiful setting and offering prints to anyone interested in purchasing this print to hang on their wall or for greeting cards.
