Schedules and Plans

I wanted to update my schedule for the next few months. January is now full and no more sessions are available. I have openings in February and March. April is almost full. Many families who wanted fall outdoor sessions but came to me too late, have booked for April. I will be on vacation for a bit in February and going to a workshop in May. So contact me soon if you want to reserve a spring session.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to book newborn sessions before the baby is born. Newborns are best photographed during the first week after delivery. This is when they are most complacent and flexible, allowing us to create those curled up newborn shots everyone loves.

Plans. . .I've got big plans for Bonnie Burman Photography in the coming year. I will post more on this later after I have a chance to organize my thoughts. In the mean times, I wish you all a blessed, happy, and safe Holiday.

Final Session of 2007

This will be my last share for the year. I'm glad to end things on a high note. This sweet little girl was pure joy. She was awake for almost the entire session but hardly cried a bit. Just a lovely little girl with a lovely set of parents. Enjoy.

I'll probably be back with a ramble or two about the upcoming year sometime in the next few weeks. I'm taking a break from sessions until January. If you are planning on a session, I suggest booking at least four to six weeks ahead of time. I won't be squeezing in as many last minute people as I did this past year. If you would like a newborn session, please contact me before the baby is born. Newborn sessions should take place within the first week after birth.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I haven't shared in a long time. Things are finally winding down here. I have one more session and then I am taking time off to spend with my family until after the holidays.

I wanted to share this adorable little girl I had the pleasure of recently photographing. Besides my adorable subject, the other noteworthy thing about this image is that I used studio lighting.

I love the casual style of available light photography. It truly is my passion. However, with the dark winter months approaching, I have decided to offer on location studio portraits on a limited basis. I will only offer these types of portraits for the winter months. If you are in need of a family session, I strongly recommend you wait until spring so we can work outdoors. But I am available to work all winter long, sun or no sun, with babies and small children.
