Kathleen, Craig & Owen ~ Edwardville Family Photos

24 Oct

There is an unbelievable amount of happy in the photos I’m about to share with you. On any given day I love my job. Tonight, I love it crazy amounts.

Can you blame me? Look at all of this happiness!!

And this little face!

Little man was really diggin that wooden chair. I grabbed that thing on a whim for $11 as I was walking past an antique store. It has proven to be the most popular thing I own.

This one is pure and complete joy. It’s like the photographic equivalent of warm cookies. I’ve already looked at it 100 times tonight.

The variety of light in the Gardens at SIUe has been amazing this fall. So different from one spot to the next and so beautiful everywhere I turn!

Love this last one… When Owen sat down next to his mama for this picture he looked over at her feet, then he crossed his ankles. I died.

More to come I’m sure : )


The Escue Family ~ Edwardsville Family Photos

24 Oct

I met up with the Escue family at the Gardens at SIUE – which has been providing some seriously amazing light and fall color in the past few weeks! These are great example that even if your kids are a bit grown up and busy with high school or living away at college – it’s still worth it to get some family photos!

Love the laughs in this one : )

These two girls have the same gorgeous eyes! Love it!

The beau stopped by for a few shots : )

Holiday Card Mini Sessions!!

26 Sep

Tis the season to start thinking about photos for Holiday cards (and holiday gifts)!

It’s one of those things you always say you’re going to do next year, right? You get a holiday card in the mail of the beautiful, smiling, family next door or your cousin sends a card with her gorgeous kids on the front. This, of course, is just days after you hastily stamped the envelopes of some mass produced cards with snowmen on the front. Snowmen no one even knows. Instead of the beautiful faces of your family. Sigh.

But this is the year to make it happen!

I’ve put together a great little package to make it all tidy and easy for you. I’ll be offering a full day of Holiday Card mini sessions in the Edwardsville area. You’ll get a nice selection of photos of you and yours, a set of awesome Holiday Cards (pick from 5 designs), and a bit of print credit too.

Check out the details below and then contact me ASAP to sign up! There’s only room for 5 sessions so act fast. Samples of the card designs follow. Be sure to check out the Things to Know and Fine Print at the bottom of the post : )

Holiday cards are also available for any client who has had a photo session since April 2011. You’ll just select from your finished photos. Rate is $40 per set of 25 cards/envelopes, $50 per set of the tri-fold.

Cards are printed on a flat 5×7 card, front and back. Front is shown on the left, back on the right. Colors can be customized!

(Tri-fold, outside on top, inside on bottom.)

Don’t forget that beautiful framed photos make wonderful (and affordable) holiday gifts for your family members!

Things to know:
It will be late October, so dress appropriately and take advantage of the chance to show off great chunky sweaters or tailored pea coats, hats, scarves, etc. Rock those layers baby!

You’ll be able to select 1 of the 5 pre-made holiday card designs to be personalized with your names and selected photos for the included set of 25 cards. Additional sets will be available for $40 (may choose different design for each set purchased if you like). There is a 6th design option which is a tri-fold card. Add $10 for this option.

Fine Print: Rate applies to groups or 5 of less. Email for details on larger groups, additional fees will apply. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to hold a spot, the remaining balance is due at the session. A rain date has been set in case of inclement weather. Due to the “mini” nature of the sessions, DVDs of all finished, high-res files with print release will be sold for the “mini” price of $80.

Email maggie@maggiemedemaphoto.com to secure a spot!

Damon’s Senior Photos

24 Apr

Last weekend I spent some time with Damon, a Woodriver senior to snap some senior photos. We made use of the always lovely Gardens at SIUE and it was neat to focus on finding more manly spots in the gardens rather than focusing on the pretty flowers : )

Shots like that one are why I love the gardens!

Black and white…always ends up being my favorite!!

Actually got some warm sunlight in this next one…it lasted a whole minute and that way all we saw of it for the whole day!

Now is the time to set up things up if you need senior photos in the general Edwardsville or St. Louis metro area! Sessions are available for the summer and fall.
