What had once started years ago as a past time passion for my introvert self. Has now slowly rolled out into something I love to do with clients. I have fallen in love with color splash is adds to an already dreamy photo. For years I would build things on the end of a flash light. Or tape LED light strips to long wooded poles and run around like a majorette twirling a baton in the parade. Then I discovered Denis Smith and his amazing collection of tools. He is a photographer who also admires his alone time in the dark. He has spent much time creating tools that have made my part so much more enjoyable. Clients can request light paint Images from Tiny Human like this on their wedding day or we can set up an after shoot to focus only on getting lost in the dark together, while creating magic.

A Fireside Chat with Tiny Human Couple, Leanna and Andre. https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/9/a-fireside-chat-with-a-tiny-human-couple  

While it feels like our business has slightly gone back to normal. We now know a few things have been missing. It has been over two years and we have only had one in person meeting with a potential client. Most everything has been done over zoom or the phone. So we sat down with some clients and had a little chat about how wedding photography is so much more than the picture you see. A message from our clients.Our clients talk a bit about their wedding day with Tiny Human Photography.

A Wadsworth Mansion Love Story https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/8/a-wadsworth-mansion-love-story Where shall I begin? Liz + Tom shared with us a beautiful wedding day full of laughter, hugs and dancing under the stars. Wadsworth Mansion is a magical place, it feels like you're transported to the english country side living in royalty. High ceilings, marble floors, balconies over looking lush greens. Drenched in light and love this place is charming and inviting. You feel like you're the only couple in the world here and it's a special feeling. Liz + Tom had that special feeling too, the ability to be themselves and soak in all the love, their generosity with their love and their family and friends was really fun to capture. So elegant and daper, this one will be hard to forget. 

 

With Love, 

Jules + Noah

Boudoir Referral Program https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/8/boudoir-referral-program


I am both excited and a tiny bit nervous to introduce our Boudoir Referral Program, but nervous in the butterflies in your stomach, looking forward to the future kind of way. 

I have designed this referral program to benefit YOU, the boudoir subject. Boudoir is unlike most photoshoots. It's more intimate, personal and many times life changing. It's my goal to make you proud of the photos, so proud you don't want them hiding away on a computer never to be seen.

When you tell your friends or family members about booking a boudoir experience with me and they come and book their own experience, you will receive $100 OFF your final products for EACH person referred. 

How do you become eligible for the referral program? When you book your experience by paying your $250 session fee, you are eligible. Your session fee will provide you with professional hair and make up and put you into the referral program. 

You have up until you purchase your final product to tell everyone you want. Make sure your referrals mention your name so you can get your rewards!

Book your experience! You know you want to!

A Favorite Part iii https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/8/a-favorite-part-iii bridal portrait, bride, wedding day, Bride in limoA Bride ready to get married waits for her guests arriving while in the limo.

 

Ohhh my favorites. . . they could tell stories. So let's tell one! Jessica & Jerry were one of our "Covid Couples". I don't love labelling them as that, but it's true. They were engaged and had their wedding planned BEFORE the pandemic and then postponed to get married later when things were a bit more "settled". 

They worked hard to make sure they didn't lose any of their vendors. Let me tell you how much we vendors appreciate that, it's huge. We get emotionally invested in you, and your story and helping you tell it. When the pandemic ripped those pages apart it was rough trying to glue them back together and have all the ones you wanted to be there make it. Vendors AND FAMILY included. 

One beautiful day in July we were reunited with this bright couple and when I tell you it felt like being with old friends I am not lying. We'd spent countless time emailing and talking on the phone, getting everything right. But we hadn't seen each other in person since our engagement session, PRE covid. And that session was a great time, so I had been looking forward to their wedding for quite some time. 

I'll fast forward my gushing to this particular photo because it was one I was never expecting. When you enter a wedding day you know there are photos you need to capture. It's a mental check list we have and we go about capturing those moments with honesty to each couple, not forcing it to be a certain way because that's how it's always done. No, no, quite the opposite. We try to capture those things in new light each time. 

This photo made me pause and literally say, "oh FUN!". It's a bit unconventional, and weird but it's captivating. You stop and think, wow, where is she? What is she looking at? How is she upside down? 

Shot through the ceiling mirror of their party bus as she looked upon guests ascending the stairs to her ceremony my beautiful bride caught my breath. I'll forever cherish her love and trust in us as photographers, allowing us the freedom to create art and capture images full of heart and fun. We say it a lot, but you should have a great time when your photo is being taken, wether it's during your portrait session or while you're laughing and crying through speeches. The photos are here to enhance your day and capture all that beautiful emotion. 

I look forward to having this joy of life in front of our camera again! Much love, 

 

Jules

Lead with confidence https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/6/lead-with-confidence Boudoir photography is meant to build you up. To bring the very best of you out to shine. To raise your confidence so that you lead with confidence.

I often think of pictures, in any capacity, as preservation. With wedding photography, it's pretty clear what you are preserving. The love, the family, the happiness. Their fist kiss as husband and wife. But when you think deeper into that day, as a photographer you are capturing a couples introduction to the world as a team, a very unique duo. They present themselves to their friends and family as no longer just themselves. It's a big deal and so are the other kinds of photography. 

A nature photographer captures animals often unseen by hundreds if not for their photos. A sports photographer captures athletes excelling in a craft they spend countless hours perfecting. A newborn photographer captures those precious moments that last for mere hours. A food photographer captures the essence of a nurturing meal. 

A boudoir photographer captures the confidence we spend years trying to find and build.  

Boudoir is special. You strip yourself down to your vulnerability and allow yourself to be captured, preserved, treasured even, by the eyes and soul of someone else. 

You hope to get some amazing photos out of it, but also, I hope you walk out having opened the flood gates of your confidence. No question left behind as to wether or not you are worthy to be preserved, because you absolutely are. 

Whether you know how to pose, love you body exactly as it is, or not it doesn't matter. Maybe you're like me and you feel awkward in front of the camera and feel confident in your body, not because it's exactly how you want it physically, but because of what it's capable of. Over the years I have learned that my body won't ever stay exactly how I want it. BUT, my thoughts don't have to hit hard on y confidence. My body is raising three children, loving my husband, carrying me every day to places I find inspiration. She is petite and a bit squishy and I feel incredibly sexy because no matter what my curves are mine, my body is unique. By loving my body for all her imperfections and all her sexiness I empower myself. No one else is beautiful in the same way as me

I love that line, it should be said to you too. So let's do that, and take it with you, repeat to yourself everyday. 

No one is beautiful the way you are. You are an empowering kind of beautiful just the way you are. 

Want to preserve that beauty? I'd love to help you, let's chat!

Boudoir - a first part https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/3/boudoir---a-beginning-many-times-over I am not a brand was born from utter confusion of how to pitch myself as a boudoir photographer. I don't like following a script when it comes to social media, I don't like being just one thing, in one style, in one way. I know I need to put my personal touch on things, but that is just it, my personal touch is quirky, a bit hidden, flashy but elegant. 

 

Boudoir for me is about accentuating your natural self. Bringing out the parts of you that feel sexy everyday and highlighting them. It's about looking at yourself everyday and finding that beauty, that sexy, that desire that's always with you no matter what. Women are becoming far more aware and in control of their sexuality, of their female power, and their ability to feel and be sexy on their own. 

Doesn't mean we don't still hold our vulnerabilities in a safe place, only ready to show them when we want and to who we want. When you put yourself in front of a camera you are asking the person behind it to see you. To see you in a light and manner not many see. You put your heart, soul and body into their hands to preserved through photographs. 

I am not a brand started repeating in my mind as I struggled to market myself, as I struggled to put me and what I felt about boudoir out there for others to see. It's an ever changing mantra, its complex and gives me a sense of freedom. Freedom to be who I am, in a manner I was built for. Freedom to photograph those in front of my camera as they are, truly as they are, without any formula as to how to do it. Freedom to be a women and to praise it. 
 

So, I am not a brand. I just am.

The Classic Gown https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2022/2/the-classic-gown Every so often I think about my wedding dress. She's tucked away, ever so gently in a giant box in my attic. I feel she's lonely up there. I've pulled her out a handful of times to try on again, once to put my daughter in. Whether you preserve your wedding dress or not, a few photos of the beauty in all her glory before she goes on you, before her debut walking down the aisle, hugging you close for one of the most intimate moments of your life. 

 

The wedding dress is a unique touch to a wedding day, I hope you have fun in the process of choosing yours. I find these classic beauties to be timeless, chic, and elegant.

A Moment with Florals https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2021/10/a-moment-with-florals From bouquets to center pieces to boutonnieres and beyond my enjoyment of flowers is quite grand. I cannot for my life grow them from seed in my garden but that's a mixture of not having enough time during the growing season to nurture them and maybe a tad that I didn't pick up my father’s green thumb. Instead, I enjoy spring, summer, and fall wedding flowers as if they were my own. I take in their essence, I frame them with excitement, I race across the hill to grab them for a photo with our lovely brides. 

I love seeing what the florists come up with. They are artists and true visionaries. They take pieces of what someone else has envisioned and brings it to life for our pleasure. From hanging orchids to cala lily bouquets I am always intrigued by their creations. Grand or delicate, vibrate or muted. The flower can add such an elegance to your wedding day and it doesn't get nearly enough credit.

A Favorite Part ii https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2020/5/a-favorite-part-ii Love in the night!

 

Everyone talks about taking time to soak in your wedding day. It goes by so fast, it's filled with people and love and laughter and so much to do. 

 

We love our night photos! I still remember when Noah approached me about instilling them into your regular flow on the wedding day. I didn't know exactly how to execute them right away but he did. I trusted him, he is the lighting guru after all. Naturally when he spoke a couple years later about adding smoke to the equation I said yes. 

 

This evening, the whole day really, was really special. We were on a private property and our couple trusted in us. Noah set up a light on a stand so that he could be with the camera and I could run around and move the smoke around them. It was thrilling, and nerve wracking cause we're in the dark and I'm super clumsy! 

 

Many thanks to this lovely couple for being the first adventure into smoke filled night photos!! It was a thrill let me tell you, such an adrenaline rush, hearing their giggles as they stared at each other and laughed with us while we made some beautiful and romantic moments. 

 

This picture, along with many many romantic interlude photos, is a moment we love remembering. And it gives you time to take a breath together and soak in everything that has happened through out the day!

A Favorite https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2020/5/a-favorite

 

I realize more and more during this stay at home time that the world has grown much more quiet. Today, as a nearby neighbor stopped leaf blowing, I listened to the trees blowing in the wind. This high pitched soothing sound as the bright green baby leaves sang with one another. It's usually the beginning of wedding season, the madness slowly creeping up, the kids itching for school to be over and begging to stay up late because it's not yet dark. 

 

This year, for everyone, that is so different. We miss our couples that for sure, it's fun being a part of something so loving and magical. But we know all the rescheduling amidst the hundreds and thousands of weddings postponed that there is still so much love. 

 

Last summer we spent a hot day with a couple on the rocks by the ocean in Branford, CT. A little place called Owenego Inn, I felt like we went back in time being there and it was so glorious. The sloping hill with kids running around in beach wear and the couples sitting at the outdoor restaurant, while others sunbathed near the water and read books for relaxation. 

 

I love picturesque moments like this that stay with you. As the sky filled with soft, transparent clouds we soaked in the breeze to our skin. Moments like this will still happen this year and I am looking forward to what they might look like, what inspiration will be waiting to share with me.

A Flower for May https://www.tinyhumanweddings.com/blog/2020/5/a-flower-for-may Yellow RoseYellow RoseDried with hints of her personality peeking through. Giving only a subtle, playfulness about her away.

Yesterday I had a conversation with my husband, we sat around our kitchen table after a game of cards and discussed an aspect about myself I'd been thinking about. Before I opened up to him, my biggest confidant, my truest companion, I felt many feelings. Saying the words aloud would make them more real, would open me up to vulnerability and invite opinions about the subject. I felt safe and loved, but I know I'm too hard on myself, and so I expect it from others. 

 

The past four months have been wild. In a time where we are slow with business we found ourselves unusually slow. The editing of winter weddings wrapped up quickly, the spring photoshoots halted, the freelance work vanished. Nothing at our fingertips but each other and three wild kids. 

 

The hardest part of what I do is knowing there are hundreds of photos I love just sitting on a hard drive, never to be seen or printed or touched. I love the creativity of photography, the sound of the camera, the weight of it in my hands. The inspiration it brings when I click the shutter release and capture a moment or a flower or anything that has somehow left a little mark on my mind and my heart is truly wonderful. 

 

Gathering my flower photos off of hard drives took a good 24 hours. I had to try and not get distracted by the many folders labeled. "Kids May 2015, Kids Summer 2016, Lane's Visit 2019" and so on, they would have their time and those folders would need much more than 24 hours. Nine years I have been photographing flowers, petals, dried up stems and crinkled roses and I dwindled it down to less than 50 photos to share. It's wild, I probably took at least a couple thousand photos of these flowers, sometimes overshooting because I was using a macro lens and with even a slight breath the focus could change and effect the whole image. 

 

In Brooklyn I used a spare bedroom to set up studio lights and photograph with a stark white backdrop. Often my daughter Avery would be in a crib that I'd roll in there with me so we could "work" together. She'd lay on the floor of our office that also doubled as a closet and practice rolling over as I edited the images. 

 

In Connecticut I slowed down the pace of flowers, we'd had another kid, my hands were full and I often wondered if I'd ever go back to the flowers. I would, but not until baby number three came on the scene and instead of my stark white or black backdrops with studio lighting I would change to a single natural light beaming in from overhead. The style changed but my excitement over drying the flowers, watching their colors change and putting them in front of my lens remained. 

 

Like this yellow rose, I started bright and shiny, even florescent, and with time and care I grew deeper and more comfortable to sink into my own creativity. I knew there was this need to create within me but I didn't know how to listen, and once I did, wow it was almost an unstoppable force. 

 

So I encourage you to print if you can print, hang photos and art on your walls, let it be seen and inspire you. 

 

Enjoy!
