Solvang in the Fall!!

I just recently moved to the beautiful little town of Solvang! I am just in love with the small town feel and all the beauty around it. Downtown is just a short stroll away and gorgeous wineries are just a short car ride away! In the early evenings I try to take my power walk and enjoy my new surroundings! I always have some kind of camera with me, it usually just my cell phone on these walks, but I wanted to share some of the fun and beautiful images I have captured on my nightly walks! This is what our Fall looks like, and I can't wait to see what the winter has in store! Enjoy and if you haven't been to Solvang you really should come out and visit this great little town!

Get On Trend with a "Trendsetter" Photo Session!

Has everyone been telling you, you need to promote your business on social media? One of the best way to do this is to have a stockpile of images for promotion to use on all your social media pages. Recently I have been asked by many local businesses to come and photograph their company, the people who work there and the products they sell. My clients want their clients to get up close and personal with their business. Having a business promotional photo shoot is a great way to highlight all the unique things about your business and show all the aspects of your business that you want your customers to see and be a part of. These images can be used to update your website and also can be used on social media. 

The newest buzz in marketing right now is visual decision making by the consumer. Consumers are more likely to consider a business, service or product that they have seen beautiful color photos of. This is due to websites, social media and photos on goggle. In order for your business to capitalize on this trend your visual content needs to be current, trendy, professional and visually appealing.

Linda Blue Photography has recently come up with three different Business Promotional Plans! One of the packages is called "The Trendsetter" and this package includes all your business and social media promotional needs and will keep your business images current. Call me for details and let me help you take your business to the next level!!!

Life is Precious and so are our Memories

Recently I moved in to my new home and as we all know moving involves many, many boxes! One of the boxes I was unpacking was full of old photograph albums and loose photos. Those of you who know me personally, know I have had tremendous loss in my family due to cancer. Its has been truly devastating, but I am finding my way and figuring out life without some of my beloved family. This box was a treasure of beautiful moments, captured and preserved. I am so grateful for the job I have and that photography is my passion. Photographing people and capturing their memories is so therapeutic for me, and I would like to thank all the families who allow me to be part of their memories and trust me to document these moments. We all think we have an eternity on this planet and so much time to do all the things we want to do.  Life is fleeting and in a blink of an eye, it  can change direction. With a heavy heart I am here to tell you, you don't have endless amounts of time.  You need to do the things you want to do, now. You need to tell the people that you love, that you love them, now. Don't put these precious moments on hold, appreciate what you have and never, ever take it for granted.

On a much lighter note here a some of my favorite moments and family memories that  I helped capture:

Baby Love!

Photographing Newborn Babies is the Sweetest Thing Ever! Many new parents think about doing these photo sessions and never go through with actually doing them,  because lets face it,  being new parents is overwhelming and exhausting. The outcome of these shoots is always incredible and every parent is always grateful that they did it! This time passes so quickly, the window is a small one. One of the secrets is to just let the baby do its normal routine and slowly work around whatever happens. It is a very organic process and no two shoots are alike. The key to a successful session is getting yourself ready and then let the little one do his or her thing. I realize some woman can feel a bit self conscious after having a baby, but the focus will be on the baby and all that baby love!!! Relax and let  the magic happen!!! Napping is a good thing, sleeping babies are precious! Diaper changes and feedings, no worries, both of those things lead to comfortable happy babies! So never let the unpredictability of a baby discourage you from having your newborn baby photographed! It will be a day you will never forget and you will cherish these photos forever!
