Cohen Reinartz – Family Rep Program

So it’s a rule that you have to think your baby is the most adorable baby ever.  There is no pretending here – Cohen really is so adorable.  When my son, Phoenix was about this age, a lady stopped me in a coffee shop and said (very genuinely!) “I really think you have the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen!” I loved that and still remember almost 7 years later.  I’m pretty sure that when Kevin and Jessica are in public with Cohen people say the same things.  He is just so beautiful and sweet! 

I love photographing kids as they grow up!
It’s so great to see how much they’ve changed physically but also to see their personalities to come out! 

If you missed his sweet puppy and dinosaur newborn photos SEE THEM HERE! 

I’ve recently discovered that I love what babies do with their arms.
They are really great at arm/hand models. 
Babies usually just put their hands and arms in the perfect spots to create a spontaneous photo…you know when they’re not chewing on their hands.  

 

 

Thank you, guys!!! I am looking forward to photographing the whole family next month! I love having you apart of my Family Rep Program!

The Bird Family: Family Rep Program

Introducing the Bird family! I secretly wanted to be friends with Amy before she even knew who I was. She always amazed me with her carefree attitude of taking care of so many people in her life but still managing to look really cute and always using a nice sweet voice with her kids:)

I think we became friends when my youngest starting calling her youngest “Dadda’s baby” because he was her teacher in nursery at church. 

And to make matters even more confusing, her husband, Eric is about the same height as my husband (which is really tall) and they usually wear the same color of colors (do they coordinate that stuff?!) so I often find myself from the corner of my eyes *almost* mistaking Eric for Thomas — which could be really embarrassing one day.  

They really do have an awesome family! 

Some of the favorites…

Here is Sydney, Evie, Eric, Amy, Josie, Silas, and Owen (from left to right)

 

Thank you, guys!!! I love having you apart of my Family Rep Program!

Friday Introductions

Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by. I wanted to introduce myself for those of you who are new around here.  I’m the owner and photographer behind Kaitlin Roten Photography.  That’s me, you’ll probably see me with black thick-rimmed glasses, but I’m self-conscious about them so I don’t usually wear them in photos :) 

Here are some things you’ll need to know behind the camera: 


1. I’m a photographer but I’m also a mom to two blue eyed kids who let me take their photos so graciously. I also might bribe them with mini-marshmallows

2. While pretty photos are really nice (and I do hope you think my images are beautiful!) I think that the photographs of you and your family, when hung up on your wall,  help you love and appreciate those in your life better. Those are the tangible things we will pass down to our kids – so here’s to making prints, not files.  

3. Right now I’m trying to eat spinach at every single meal…it’s going well so far.  I also love Kombucha.  I’m not really sure why people call me crunchy :) But I really don’t think I am.

The Baxter’s Christmas Session

I’m nervous about sharing Christmas sessions because of the anticipation of sharing for Christmas cards – but when Carrie shared over her social media I knew that I could too! I love repeating photographing families! Last year this little girl was much harder to get her to look decently happy for her photos – this year….completely different! It’s so fun watching kids grow up in front of my camera! So many cute family photos to share with friends and family I can’t wait to see which one they choose! 

Having photos on our walls help us remember sharing fun experiences with each other. 
They also help you remember to love and appreciation those who matter most in your lives. 
When you’re having a tough day, you inevitably walk by a portrait of each other and it acts a reminder to appreciate each other.

Our Fall Family Photos: What we wore/What to wear Wednesdays

We went to Wimberly to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday! The place that his parents rented out was AMAZING. It’s also a wedding venue so naturally it was breathtaking.  At the very last minute I announced we were all doing family photos! I (naturally) went to Express to buy the a floral tie for Thomas that I mentioned just a few weeks ago as an awesome accessory for guys.

I do have to brag that he and his dad both reacted strongly against the tie but then they both commented how nice it was (yes! Fist pumps!!)
And also a huge thank you to his dad and mom for taking the photos and for entertaining our kids to have them actually look at the camera! I can’t wait to get these huge up on my family wall! 

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the tulle skirt and hope that it convinces you to wear one to your session! It’s so flowly it looks great on camera. And here’s another tip – my shirt was super tight in all the wrong places – bouquet of flowers fixed that problem right away! Who knew flowers could make you look 10 pounds lighter?

What are you looking for in a family photographer?

It’s OCTOBER! So that means the hope of cooler temperatures and FAMILY PHOTOS! October has to be the craziest month for family photographers – I LOVE IT! I wanted to give you a few questions to go through to know how and who to hire as your family photographer.  I’m going to give answers to the questions for my family photography business. But if you feel like we wouldn’t jive together – then just use this information to find a photographer that you love!

  1.  Shooting style.  
    What is the photographer’s shooting style that you prefer? Is it dark and moody or bright and airy? Each session should have the same style.  When you’re looking at a photographers’s work (which should be the BEST OF THE BEST on their portfolio and blog) do they have a consistent style? I’d want to know what I was getting into before paying for a service.  The quality of the photographer will tell you if their work is all over the place and not consistent.   I fall into the category of bright and airy.  My images have a lot of light in them with subtle warm tones.  I’ve made a photographing system so that my images are consistent and you know generally what you’re getting before you book a session with me.  
  2. Image Style and your own style
    This kind of goes with the one above, but I wanted to make it a separate point.  If a photographer’s style isn’t consistent with yours, then you are not going to want to purchase prints and products to put them up in your home.  I give many examples of my work on the wall’s on my client’s homes.  I even give you a sneak peak of your images on the wall.  
  3. Quality
    Is the work of the photographer the same? Are all of the images in focus, have the same feel? You should definitely know what you’re getting into before you purchase a session. The work on my blog is consistent with the other images that I share with my client that I do not feature on my blog. I send my clients a preview of an entire family session so they can see what they can expect.  Would you like to see a sample family session? Just email me! 
  4. Investment (have you read my “why photography costs so much?“)
    Can I afford this photographer? Pricing for photography is ALL over the place.  If you want great photos – you’re going to have to pay for it.  I think great photographs (one that you want to hang in your homes) is worth saving up for.  When people say they can’t afford, in most cases it’s actually saying they don’t want to afford.  People save up for all kinds of things – a new iPhone, trip to Disney, a new car.  It’s really about priorities.  My sessions start at $199 for an hour.  This is the session fee. After the session I meet with my clients to have a very exciting (!!!) viewing party where they view their images.  From there, the client can choose which images they love and want to hang on their walls. Before booking, I give my client a price list of options for prints and products so they know how much things will cost. Would you like to see this? Just email me! 
  5. Photographer/Client Relationship
    Does the photographer know how to treat adults and kids? Do they treat the client strictly as a client, acquaintance, or friend? Does the photographer know how to pose each different client to be flattering? Does the photographer have a rescheduling charge? How easily is it for you to contact the photographer? I feel like we just became best friends when I photograph someone.  I remember everyone who I’ve ever photographed in the last 11 years! I love to keep our original date that we settled on, but moving your session to another date is fine as long as my calendar is free. 
  6. Specialize: 
    Does the photographer specialize in a certain area? If they do, they probably enjoy that area more than others and are more consistent and talented in that area.  I’ve been photographing for 11 years and really feel like I’m gravitating towards families and kids more than weddings.  I definitely photograph weddings but my niche is definitely with families. 

That’s it for now! I’m excited to be putting together an e-book of “What to Expect” that will give you an idea of how to book a session with me and the order of events. Stay tuned!

Styled Shoot: Lavender Ridge Farms

Here’s some wedding inspiration for you today! I teamed up with some awesome people to make this happen! There are many great details to get  you thinking how to style your own wedding.  For this shoot we all came together to provide you with details that are eco-friendly.

Style Designer: Brittany Baxley (the queen of thrift and everything beautiful!) IG @pinthrift
Cake: Lakeview Bakery of Rowlett IG @lakeviewbakeryrowlett
Flowers: Annamarie IG @abundantflowershop
Make up: Jennifer Peterson on Facebook at Lip Locked Smooches
Bride: Amanda Wendel IG @mrsamandawendel
Venue: Lavender Ridge Farms on Facebook at Lavender Ridge Farms in Gainsville, Texas
Photographer: Kaitlin Roten IG @Kaitlinroten

Brittany gathered the details from her expertise at thrifting. 
Some of the details came from the Canton Trade Days

Napkins were tied together using blood grass blades. 

My favorite details came from the flowers. They were a show stopper – even amidst a beautiful butterfly garden at Lavender Ridge Farms.  Annamarie from abundant flower shop blew my mind. Here are the details…

Bridal Bouquet:
Kale & Magnolia Leaves & Forage for any additional greens/textures based on season and what grows natively.
Centerpieces:
Mason Jars with Jewels – Use any type of jar and pick up necklaces or bracelets from thrift stores or from friends and family etc.
Clear milk jars dipped in gold – Any jar or glassware dipped in any color paint to match the theme. Fresh Dill from garden or purchase from grocery store in produce.
Succulent planter – office wire baskets spray painted any color, succulent plants planted in ziploc bag liners, use moss to line and cover the bag. Succulents can be later replanted at home.
Purple Jew – hanging potted plant, remove hanger and set in any home decor basket (make sure soil is dry so no drainage). Optional – add sticks from willow trees


The wedding dress was rented from Rent the Runway
A great choice to have a beautiful dress for your wedding, not spend a ton of money (it was under $200) and be able to be eco-friendly.  

The food was provided from Lavender Ridge Farms’ menu. With Lavender Honey Chicken Salad and the Salad Trio. 

The beautiful cake! It is a naked, white cake with buttercream frosting.  Beautiful peonies cascading down the side. 

These are photos from the bride and groom’s engagement session. 
They are printed on recycled photo paper and hung on this thrifted merry-go-round found at the Canton Trade Days.

Gathered flowers were picked to add some accents on the drink table!

 

Thank you to all for the help! HUGE SUCCESS and so beautiful!!!

Premier School Photos

Another plug for premier school photos.  Are you tired of buying those awful school portraits at school? Check these out!

Sibling photos? Yes, Please!

These guys are so cute!

Another reason I’d like to plug for the premier school portraits (if you missed my other reason I shared go here) taking photos of kids outside rather than inside (like regular school pictures) helps them relax more for a more genuine smile. That’s what you want, right?!

So if you’re interested in having portraits like this instead of the really terrible ones you’re use to listen up! I’ll be sharing what you can do next week!

Headshots and a quicky

This has to be the quickest session to date.  These kids are the typical crazy 2 year olds, but they were so good! Jennifer really knows how to wrangle them – even in high heels.  That’s a super mom for you! Scroll down for such a beauty of a headshot! Love it!!!

pinkie promise? love that! 

We were really there to get these great headshots of Jennifer for her Sensegence business.

What to Wear Wednesdays: Ties for Guys

If you’ve been keeping up with what’s in fashion for this fall then you’ll know these two things…

Red is the fall color 
What’s in for the fall

I wanted to give you some options for ties for the men if your life.  I’m SO happy that skinny ties are still in – I’m sure in a a decade or so we’ll all be flocking to the thrift stores to get our hands on the wider ties…but for now definitely stick with the skinnier ties.

If you haven’t seen my general guide for what to wear for the guys then check it out here!

These are definitely not feminine! They’re look awesome with a great outfit on the lady.
I’m imagining a tulle skirt paired with this.  I’d love that.

Core Skinny Tie $20
Black Skinny Tie $20

Premier School Portraits

For about a hot second I worked for a well known school photo company a long long time ago.  I would come home and cry it was so terrible.  I never thought I would actually be back in the school business. BUT!!! Here I am! It is WAY different than what it was when I first started because it’s the way I want to do it.  Regular school photos are just so so so terrible.  Why do people still buy them? I felt so happy last year when I checked “please do not photograph my child” on my son’s spring photo form.  He also equally enjoyed  sweatpants that day.  So I’m ramping up my school portraits and I’d like to call it “premier school portraits” to really set it apart from what parents and kids are use to.

Sibling photos? Yes, please!

There are many many reasons I think this type of portraits for school is better but one of the reasons
I am going to share with you today is that it gives
CONFIDENCE
to the students! If you had school photos of you like this wouldn’t you LOVE them???

Vertical and horizontal – totally an option.

Danielle’s Bridal Portraits

I couldn’t post all of these at the time because the secrecy of the dress! And isn’t it so great?! I also love how Danielle wore her hair down – if there’s jealously of hair then I definitely have it for her luscious locks. It’s so beautiful! Danielle and Felix got married this weekend in Vegas! So after months of sitting on my favorite bridal portraits here they are! Congratulations to you guys!!!! I have loved photographing you both over this last year!

To see their engagement photos go here – especially if you feel stuck about what to wear for your engagement session. They rocked it!

What to wear Wednesdays: Rent the Runway

Personally this week I’ve been on CLOUD 9! It’s been such a productive hustle over here.  Before I got started in my own business I would watch the hours click by on the clock just waiting for my last art class of the day to go home so that I could go home.  And I definitely lived for the holidays.  But now? I work every single day.  I totally wouldn’t change it though because I LOVE IT! It definitely has it’s perks….but not going lie, it also has it’s disadvantages.  Being an entrepreneur is often lonesome and really really fearful!

But like I said this week has been awesome!!!! My highlights have been getting my new style guide hot off the press, launching my first and awesome Family Rep Program, AND (this one is SO BIG!!) two VERY well known photographers recognizing my photography work – I literally squealed and did a happy dance – actually I’m still doing that.

I also was REALLY excited because a few weeks ago I wrote about how red was the new color for Fall 2017. Then this popped over into my inbox….

Have you heard of rent the runway? If you’ve read my style guide (which all my client get upon booking!) then you know that I LOVE IT! It’s a great way to not spend a ton of money on gorgeous runway looking dresses to look like a BILLION dollars for your photo session. And look at that red dress?! You can find just the right red dress for you right here! 

I’d love to see this dress paired with a crimson tie for your guy, floral with crimson hues dress for your little girl, and deep red suspenders and bow tie from London Jae Apparel 

 

That’s it for now! If you’d like to read other “what to wear” ideas go to the top and just search “what to wear”. See you next week!

Time to schedule your senior sessions!

Senior year is a sprint! And it’s here! I’ve already heard that seniors are ordering caps and gowns and it’s such a great time of the culmination of hard work and great memories. I had such a great time photographing these group of friends! Thank you Carol, Karan, Keegan, Kelly, Abi, and Nathan!! You rocked it!

You’ll want to remember these times! AND like I always say (are you getting tired of it?!) seeing your senior’s photos (especially after they’ve left the house!) helps you love and appreciate them even more….and we all need a little more of that in our lives.  Looking at your senior photos from our experience will not only help you remember that time but will help you remember how you felt during that year.  

How to book your senior session? Head over here – senior sessions are the 2 hour sessions.
For the last 20-30 minutes, seniors get to invite their friend or family for a itty-bitty session.

A few favorites from an awesome early morning perfectly dressed couple! Wowzers!
I’ve been begging for someone to wear a tulle skirt and it finally happened! Look how awesome it looks on camera!

Having photos printed in your house for all to see! It’s just not about you.  It’s about the time we’ve both invested in this photo experience.  It’s also about your future children and their children seeing these photos of how you both love each other so much! It’s much more than seeing photos – it’s about experiencing the love between the two of you that will pass down from generation to generation!

What to wear Wednesdays: What’s in the fall

Life is sort of back to normal around here and that means WHAT TO WEAR WEDNESDAYS is BACK!

I already mentioned (even though it totally doesn’t feel like Fall is around the corner here in North Dallas) I’m going to be talking about what to wear to your fall sessions. I’m super super excited to announce that my October is fully booked for session but I do have a few spots left as of today for November.

If you’d like to schedule a session in November you can totally get your photos back in time to order Holiday Cards, prints, or products for yourself or family members.  I’m loving this heirloom locket necklace – it would make a great gift!

Ok back to What to Wear…. here are some things that are in style for the fall (according to Elle Magazine guide – because I am not that cool to make these things up)…

  • The color red
  • Couch floral patterns (also called micro florals)
  • Deconstructed shirts (think cold shoulder)
  • High collars
  • Long skirts or dresses
  • Thick belts

That’s a lot to work with!

 

I’ve found 2 awesome red dresses that I think would look great on camera for your fall session:

Venus Cold Shoulder Dress
Venue Pleated Flare Dress

Charlotte Russe Floral Mesh Maxi Skirt $26– I think this is a great option to use the colors that I usually recommend and try to have a little bit of the fall colors

Floral Ruffle-Trim Wrap Skirt $29 

Floral Tulle Overlay Skirt $27

Floral Midi Wrap Skirt $15

Too good not to share

I usually just post one sneak peak per photo session….but….I loved this one so much that it was too good not to share.  This photo screams LITTLE BOYS!!! Love it!

toddler boy

The light is also so so so so …. so so so so dreamy! Want to know why??? Golden light.  Golden light occurs twice per day.  Once in the morning and once in the evening.  It happens an hour after sunrise and and hour before sunset.

In the summer golden hour can be tricky because it’s sometimes as early as 6:30am and as late as 8pm.  This can be hard for the little ones. But if you can swing it (and I really hope you can!) it will make everyone look creamy and dreamy.  Once summer is over the times get a little more reasonable.

Did you see that my last October weekend date to grab is October 29th?  That’d be 7:30am or 6:15pm. Take it while you can!!

What to wear Wednesday: Keeping in thrifty!

I’m sure you’ve heard of poshmark! Super great to get some awesome deals.  It’s a GREAT place to find an awesome outfit for your FALL photos! I’m transitioning today in talking all about fall photos!

I’m loving the color yellow for fall photos.  (That’s what I’m planning on wearing for our fall photos..stay tuned!!)

Look at this awesome Nordstom’s Boho Fringe Kimono with a tad of yellow in it! It also complies with my style guide to choose lighter colors for portraits.  AND GUYS…..it’s $8!!! Whatttt???? That’s just drop everything you’re doing and head over there to get it NOW! Yikes!!!

This is from an awesome stylist Brittany Thomas.  You should check her shop out and come back to check out as she updates it regularly.

This is my first (probably of MANY!) announcement that I’m working with her and a bunch of other local vendors on an awesome wedding styled shoot coming your way in late September.

And one more mention about Fall Photos – If you’re hoping for an October weekend session then contact me now, lickety-split!  I have just 1 spot left (October 29th!) – is it going to go to you?? Time would be either at 7:30am or 6:15pm.  (I go into the why about these times in my style guide that also comes with booking a session with me! It’ll help you also with MORE what to wear!)

 

Thanks for reading my what to wear Wednesdays!

Landen is (almost!) 4!

client wall artWhen I corresponded with Landen’s mom for the first time I just knew that his eyes were going to be a show stopper.  Just like she said, they really do change color – and are so beautiful! Landen will be 4 in January (which I feel like is RIGHT around the corner – it could be just me hoping for a break from 100F temps!).  He’s so full of energy and a typical toddler who loves to run, fall, and be silly! Happy (early!!) birthday Landen! Landen at 4
