What to Do With Your Photos Once the Holidays Are Over

first day of school photos

If there’s one time when people take hundreds of photos, it’s during the holidays. It’s a time that’s spent with family and friends and there are so many memories to capture, but what can you do with your holiday snaps once it’s all over?

Ideas for what to do with your photos after the holidays

  • Turn them into magnets.What better way to remember a fun moment during the holidays than by seeing it on your refrigerator every morning. Magnets also make for fun, inexpensive gifts for your loved ones.
  • Add them to a digital frame.Why choose to print one or two of your favorite holiday photos when you can loop through all of them using a digital photo frame. Another option is to create a slideshow of your holiday photos that you can use as a screensaver on your computer or even your television.
  • Create a calendar. Pick 12 of your favorite holiday photos so that you can look back on a new memory each month. Calendars also make great gifts for family members.
  • Get creative with your prints.Instead of printing your photos out in the usual sizes, why not print them out as Polaroid-sized photos or Instagram strips, which you can hang from clips along a custom wire photo display.
  • Add them to custom coasters.Another great way to display a few of your fun holiday snaps is to print them on coasters. This is a great alternative to printing the photos for frames and you can still have them all over your home too.
  • Print a photo book.Instead of printing each of your photos individually, why not turn your holiday photos into a fun photo book. It’s so easy to take multiple photos using our digital cameras and smart phones but we often forget to print our photos at all. There are a number of great websites and services available that make it super easy to create a photo book that will be delivered directly to your door.

With so many fun and creative ways to display and enjoy your holiday photos, there’s no longer any excuse for them to sit in a folder on your computer.

The Barr’s Family Session ~ Scorpion Gulch in Phoenix, Arizona

Family Photo Session at Scorpion Gulch in Phoenix Arizona

Hi again, ladies and gents!

Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so wonderful to work with. That’s true of my session with the Barr family, too!

I met up with them at Scorpion Gulch and the weather was perfect but it was the Barr family that made this shoot such a success.

The Barr family consists of Mom – Amy, Dad – Eric, Rosalie who is 8 years old and she has been on the honor roll since she was in kindergarten and loves spaghetti, Melody who is 6 years old and has the cutest little dimple on one cheek and loves babies, and Baby Luna who is just 2 months old and loves to smile at her daddy.

“We like to watch a new movie, eat some snacks in our pjs on the weekends.,” says Amy.

As you can see from the comments above and the photos, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly loves spending time together. Amy, Eric, Rosalie, Melody and Luna are lucky to have each other.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Breastfeeding Awareness Photo Shoot ~ Whickenburg, Arizona

breastfeeding-photographer-white-tank-mountains-arizona-ashley-flug-photography

Hey pretty mama’s! I have this vision for a group nursing session and I am so excited to announce that Ashley Flug Photography will be offering this session on August 11th, 2018 at 5:30pm in Wickenburg, Arizona. Due to bad weather the session was rescheduled to August 26th, 2018 at 5:15pm and will still be held in Wickenburg.

AD2_0911e1.jpg

I am looking to get 5 or more nursing mommy’s to be a part of a group nursing session. I would like for the mom’s to be in either ivory or blush colored dresses and the baby’s either naked with their tush showing or clothing to match mom. You will need to supply your own outfits so please keep in mind when choosing your dress that you will be able to nurse in it (I know, thats a given lol). The location the session will be held at has a creek and there may or may not be water in it so you might get your feet wet as well at your dress if it is long but it will be super gorgeous, I promise! If you need direction or pointers when choosing the perfect outfits I am here to help.

If you wish to have individual photos after the group session of you and your baby(s) you are more than welcome to stay after the group photo so you can have precious nursing images for your keepsake. The group session will last about 20 to 30 minutes and individual images will last about 10 minutes per mom. You will receive 3 digital images from the session in return for your time. These images will be used on social media and website so a model release will need to be signed stating you are ok with the images being used online. I, of course, would not post any images with your nipple showing if your little one were to unlatch during a photo.

If you are interested in being a part of this session please fill out the form below. I will then get you on the schedule and set up your client portal with all forms needed from you in order to attend. I will send exact location details the day before the session but it will be held in Whickenburg, Arizona so you can plan on how long it will take you to arrive before the session day.

Thank you so much for wanting to be a part of this and I look forward to meeting you and your babe!

Why you need a mommy and me photo session

photo session gifts

The bond between a mother and a child is unlike any other, one that can be beautifully captured with a camera. But if you are anything like me, you are always the one behind the camera in family photos and hardly ever in them. Even when we have our family photos professionally taken, I am always too busy worrying about everyone else and do not get to relax and enjoy the photo session. The photos also tend to focus more on the kids and I hardly ever get to capture moments of us being ourselves.
I have recently been reminded that life is truly precious and filled with moments we sometimes take for granted. I want to be in more photos with my children and this is why I have come to realize how important my Mommy and Me photo sessions are. Now is the perfect time to capture memories with your children, regardless of where you or your kids are in life.
We want to make this photo session work for you, so whether you want a few photos with your children, or you simply want some memorable pictures of you and your own mother; we are here to guide you. This is your chance to get creative and really make a photo session about you and your kids and the special bond that you share.

Bring along anything that will make you all feel comfortable and will help you spend some time together as we do our job. For example, you might want to bring a blanket and some of your daughters favorite books so that we can capture your snuggles and story time. Maybe you want to stop and grab some ice-treats with your son or bring along a game that you both enjoy playing. This is all about creating a space where you can enjoy being together so that we can perfectly capture these moments for you.
If you are looking for an alternative to the traditional family portraits, the Mommy and Me portraits are ideal. While a family portrait can be a wonderful way to capture those special moments of you and your children through the years, it does require some extra effort to get everyone together and in the same place. A Mommy and Me photo session is easier to style and coordinate.
I love that Mommy and Me portrait photography is intimate and sweet with very little fuss. These sessions do not take very long and will free up your schedule to spend more quality time together. These sessions provide a space where those natural interactions and emotions can play out, resulting in a mini time capsule of your current relationship. You might even want to make this an annual tradition so that you can beautifully document the relationship with your children.

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve carved enough time out of my schedule to host “Mommy and Me” mini sessions, to be held at a location in the west valley on April 28th, 2018. Only 5 spots available! Because I think it’s so important to celebrate mother’s, these session are only $175 which will include 15 minutes time and 5 digital images. PLUS, everyone who books will get a free 5×7 print of their choice. I anticipate these will book quickly, so email me to book yours! info@ashleyflugphotography.com
