It's that time of year again! Soon we'll all be celebrating the College & High School graduates in our lives with backyard barbeques, beautiful brunches and ceremonies filled with pomp and circumstance! It's such a season of hope and one of my favorite things about graduating was getting to spend time with family. Last year, I was invited to join this sweet family for brunch after their graduate's ceremony; Capturing the family gathering and their proud Chamblee Charter High School Graduate reminded me of how important it is to have these precious moments documented. And why not relax and put away that Iphone camera... you worked hard to get your baby through school after all! Sit back and allow me!

Cosmic Soul Candle Company | Georgia Product Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/5/cosmic-soul-candle-company-georgia-product-photographer Hello Pretty Friends!

I'm a huge fan of Aromatherapy and have been since college -- I regularly use Lavender at night and Citrusy smells when working in my home office. I also LOVE the smell of incense and the relaxation a simple candle flicker can provide.  When Cosmic Soul Candle Company contacted me to provide white background product photographer for their online shopping platforms, I was really looking forward to all the delicious smells that would soon be filling my studio. My favorites were Peace and Island Breeze.

I've never used sage sticks and hadn't even heard of sage sticks that included lavender, so theirs (pictured below) really piqued my interest! Apparently this Native American ritual is used to cleanse your aura or clear a space of energy.

They even offer gift wrapping and those options are also featured below.

You can find these products on their Facebook page and I expect with new product photography, a beautiful website will be coming soon!

Do you have an Etsy Shop? Do you sell a product on Amazon? We would love to work with your company and provide white back images for your e-commerce website. We also love to create branding imagery for your company's social media platforms! Not in Georgia? Not a problem... just ship your products to our studio and we will ship it back! We also offer bulk discounts!

IDEA! Event + Style | Atlanta Children's Party Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/4/idea-event-style-atlanta-childrens-party-photographer Every now and again I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph a party planned by IDEA! Event + Style. Jasmine provides top notch planning services and has an eye for detail. She really seems to tap into not only what every child dreams of for their party, but what would make it most convenient for the parents as well. Nothing is overlooked and there are whimsical little surprises everywhere you look. If you're looking for a high end party planner to do it all while you sit back and enjoy, you've found it in IDEA! Event + Style. A few weekends ago I was able to document one of her My Little Pony parties... complete with a bounce house, pony rides, bunnies for petting and painting. Everywhere I looked, children were smiling and I had SO much to photograph.

Documenting those everyday moments | Marietta Lifestyle Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/4/MariettaLifestylePhotographer Summer is almost here and I am SUPER excited about two things:

1. Taking our first beach trip as a family of three

2. Seeing how my little girl will respond to a pool (since bath time is her current fave part of the day)

Because I'm so in the moment with her and my husband, sometimes I forget to bust out the camera (I know, I know... SHAME!!); I have to remind myself that I'll want all these moments beautifully documented and be so sad if I don't take pictures! Her first year's scrapbook is already underway (thanks to momwithoutlabels.com for gifting me such a beautiful First Year Album at my shower!) and my heart was just so happy when I got my first batch of prints in the mail the other day and started pasting them in.

It reminded me to share a few images I took for my cousin on my last trip to Texas. We went to see her little girls swim practice (I'm probably biased but she's a REALLY fast and technically great swimmer) and I'm hoping a few of these make it into their scrapbook! I know everyone books the typical fall family portrait every year... and that IS important, but it's also really fun to hire a pro photographer to come out to your kiddos favorite activities every so often so that those moments can be saved! You will never regret having these professional images for your children's scrapbooks, I promise!

Seasons of Life as a Business Owner | Atlanta Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/4/seasonsoflife New Years Day this year was actually my little girl's due date (she wasn't born until 2 weeks later), so it's probably no suprise that I didn't partake in any New Years Goal Setting... unless you count the goals of not going to bed at 8pm and not waddling so badly in public! Now that my little one is here, I've gotten somewhat of a handle on this new mom life and am slowly easing back into the role of business owner... I thought it may be time to assess my business goals for this season of life and today I'm sharing those with you.

1. Know my worth. My time has always been valuable... it doesn't take having a child to make your time valuable. However, I'm finding it far easier now to say no to discounting my work and am not feeling guilty about keeping deposits for sessions missed.

2. Before I became a real life mom, I was "fantasy mom". Fantasy Mom could easily wear her baby for a fashion blogger photoshoot, breastfeeding and changing diapers when my client was changing clothes. Real life mom learned that babies don't get hungry and poop only when YOU want them too. A HUGE thank you to my client (turned friend) who was patient enough to let me test this theory out during her 3 hour blogger photoshoot. We made it work, but it wasn't something I'd like to do again. I went home that day and hired a mother's helper ;)

3. There is a season for growth and there is a season for maintaining. Those of you who have known me from the beginning, know that I am a VERY hard worker. I set my mind on starting a business and immediately started in on 10+ hours a day of marketing and social media management to achieve my dream.  So it's hard not to beat myself up these days over going two weeks without posting on instagram. But it is what it is... right now I have to be kind to myself and allow for some down time. Do I still want to work? Oh absolutely. But can I expect myself to work the same number of hours? Not at this moment. What should I sacrifice? Certainly not my current clients or clients seeking me out. So I sacrifice on marketing. Which is SO odd feeling after 2 years of marketing with almost every breath I took.

I know, I know, these don't sound like lofty goals to you. But knowing my worth, accepting that I may need help with child care and giving myself permission to "just" maintain my business instead of hustle were astonishingly hard conclusions to come to for some reason or another. 

Talk to me about your goals at the moment... and how they differ from the goals you set during another season of your life? I'd love to hear about the ebb and flow you came to accept and love! Below I'm sharing some of my favorites from my first photoshoot since the birth of our daughter. To learn more about these looks, head on over to NikkiFreeStyle.com

Lifestyle Photography in Rockwall, Texas | Gossett Photography http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/4/lifestylephotographyinrockwalltexas I'm happiest when I'm photographing unposed, real life activities that make my subject happy. And with the Masters right around the corner, I thought I'd share a few images I snapped of my cousin's sweet kiddo last fall at a golf tournament. Are you in the Atlanta Metro or Dallas Metro area and want me to come out and capture your littles doing what they love best?

Two things I learned during Labor & Delivery | Atlanta Lifestyle Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/3/TwothingsIlearned On the evening of January 15th, exactly two weeks after her due date, we welcomed our daughter into the world. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we took 6 weeks to ourselves to admire the gift we've been given. And thank you, especially, for your patience with me as I enter back into the work force ... there is absolutely a learning curve to becoming a mom who works both inside and outside the home. 

Atlanta Birth Photographer

 

Many of you have asked about her birth and while we want to keep the specifics private, I will share two things I learned during the process:

1. The importance of building a birth team you can trust.

You are vulnerable and sometimes scared and it is imperative you are surrounded by people who won't exploit that. C was born into a room full of love. My husband delivered our daughter under the supervision of the midwife. The nurses perfectly understood how I carried previous hospital trauma with me and did everything to make sure I felt safe. The midwives of Nile Midwifery HEARD me and supported our choices. Our hospital had policies in line with our vision for her birth. Our doula Christine Strain pointed us in the direction of evidenced based information when we had questions and Annette of Womb Wise, our Bradley Method Childbirth Coach, was the calm presence that rounded out the team. My husband and I agree that if we had to do it all over again, we'd do everything the same and this is in LARGE part because of the people we surrounded ourselves with. If you're expecting, I highly recommended being diligent in the hiring process of your O.B. and hiring a Doula, as well as taking a child birth class with teachings in line with your values. I'd also recommend hiring a post-partum doula, something we did not do but looking back, would have benefited greatly from. 

2. You experience the birth you were meant to experience. 

I hear so many women these days shaming themselves, second guessing and harboring resentment and regret over the way they birthed and I absolutely refuse that course. Did everything go "as planned" for us? Absolutely not. But we had the birth that was meant for us. We learned the lessons we needed to learn. We met the people we needed to meet. We received the gifts we were meant to receive and the hardships we needed to experience to truly appreciate the moments of joy. 

 

Atlanta Birth Photographer

Thank you so much for all the love you all have been sending our way. As for work --> I'm currently scheduling Individual Style Sessions for bloggers & brands on Fridays and have resumed monthly Fashion Fridays (Bloggers & Brands, you can check availability and make your deposits for Style Sessions & Fashion Friday here). Additionally, Spring Family Portrait Sessions and Senior Sessions are in full swing (contact me directly to schedule). I look forward to getting back into the swing of things and working with all my regular clients again -- I've missed you friends! 

 

Until next time,

Amber

5 Images You Need For A Fashion Blog Post | Gossett Photography http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2018/2/5images-for-your-fashion-blog-post  

Hello pretty friends!

Today I'm sharing with you the "must have" shots you'll want during a Style Session to make sure you have all the imagery you need for a successful blog post. This isn't to say you can't stray from this list and add a few creative shots to make things pop... but at a minimum, you'll want the following five:

 

From A Distance

I always include a few full body shots from a distance, specifically "for the gram". For example, the below can be cropped into a square and the viewers will still be able to take in the whole outfit as a preview for whats to come on the blog.

  Buckhead, AtlantaAtlanta Fashion PhotographerGossett Photography

Accessories

Be sure to point out to the photographer, all the accessories you plan on providing links or information for on your blog so that they are photographed properly. 

Buckhead, AtlantaAtlanta Fashion PhotographerGossett Photography Buckhead, AtlantaAtlanta Fashion PhotographerGossett Photography

Full Body

You'll want to make sure all your readers have a good view of the clothing and how it lays and was styled all together. Include one natural looking full body image so your readers can envision themselves in the same outfit! 

  Buckhead, AtlantaAtlanta Fashion PhotographerGossett Photography

                 Head Shot 

During each outfit, I like to always take at least one head shot of my client -- as a blogger, you need a handful of these to choose from for things like profile pictures and images to introduce yourself when you are guest blogging.

Buckhead, AtlantaAtlanta Fashion PhotographerGossett Photography

Fun & Flirty

Your blog post pictures will get boring REALLY fast if every. single. one. is of you posing for the camera in the same "natural" looking stance. I always try to snap a few doing something slightly different... leaning up against a wall, looking into a mirror/reflection, sitting on a bench. Nothing to crazy, just something to break up the monotony of you standing there for your readers ;)

XOXO,

We are in a state of BABY FEVER over here in the Gossett Home... with a newborn of our own and SO in love... so I thought I'd extend that to the blog today. I was asked often during my pregnancy and right after her arrival, what type of newborn images I was wanting and my answer was and still is IN HOME LIFESTYLE. This also happens to be my favorite style to shoot, since my love of photography stems from documenting the fleeting beauty of real life moments. So today I wanted to share 5 reasons why I think you should consider an in home lifestyle session for your newest addition.

1. These moments are not forever and you will miss them. Yes, your house may be a little messier than usual. Yes, you may not feel like getting out of those sweatpants. Yes, you may not have washed your hair in 3 days. I say, embrace it. This is the season of life you are in right now and it will not last forever. One day you'll be dropping that precious baby off at college and you will long for the days when you went grocery shopping with spit up down your backside. Okay, maybe you won't long for THAT moment, but chances are you'll miss "when (s)he was little". But it will be gone. At least have a few quality images of what real life looked like in those first two weeks to remember it by. I promise when you see the images, you'll recognize the beauty in the mundane and the perfection in imperfection. Give yourself that gift as a new mother, because it is probably something you really need right about now.

2. Getting out of the house is hard. Even if you do manage to put some make up on, fix your hair and get the whole fam dressed casually, getting them from point A to point B might just be the breaking point. Especially if you have more than one kiddo!

3. Quality Images for your baby's baby book documenting meaningful reality, not a creative vision, will be more meaningful for him/her as an adult. When I gift my baby's baby book to her after she's had her own baby, the image of her stuffed in a jar full of valentine sweet heart candies may not hold so much meaning to her. But I can guarantee the one of her laying on her daddies chest will mean the world.

4. Your other children will cooperate better in a familiar environment. If you're longing for some sibling images, you'll be wrangling two or more children (one of them being newborn) and crossing every finger and all your toes that it all goes well. It might. And it might not. And with a new addition to the family, your other children might be behaving in some unexpected ways. Should they get too overwhelmed in a lifestyle shoot, they can simply go to their own space to have some alone time. Or they'll likely want to show off their own room and toys and welcome the attention, which will produce some lovely images of them doing what they love most at this time in their life. Eventually they will warm up to the camera and be eager to show me "how they hold the baby". With in home lifestyle, we just go with the flow and photograph whomever is most cooperative at the time. Happy children are the most photogenic children.

5. Documenting the nursery. You probably spend 9 months or more dreaming up that nursery. You thoughtfully placed furniture and a relative lovingly created a handknit blanket; dad worked hard to paint the walls and every little detail was hemed and hawed over for hours or more. Rocking in the antique family rocker, laying on "just the right sheets" you went to 8 different stores to find... there are lots of ways we can photograph your baby while incorporating their perfect little nursery. If it's anything like our nursery, we're betting there is a closet you can stuff that basket of unfolded baby clothes in ;)

An in home lifestyle session isn't just for new additions to the family; this documentary style is perfect for other family milestones you'll want to remember. I hope you'll reach out a lifestyle photographer near you and book something to capture YOUR beautiful chaos; You won't regret it! 

XOXO,

Amber Gossett

5 Ways To Prepare For Your Blogger Photoshoot | Atlanta Blogger Photographer http://www.gossettphotography.com/blog/2017/12/5-ways-to-prepare-for-blogger-photoshoot 5 ways to prepare for your Blogging Photoshoot

 

I have the privilege of photographing some of Atlanta's most influential fashion and lifestyle bloggers on a regular basis and have since learned how to advise my clients on making the most of their time with me. When you are paying a photographer an hourly rate, it is important to be organized in order to afford the photoshoot, as well as to fit in all the looks and scenes you have prepared. Today I'm sharing my top 5 tips on how to best prepare for your Blogging Photoshoot.

1. First things first. Money. Yep, let's talk about it. You shouldn't be reaching into your own pocket to pay for your photographer. Instead, reach out to the brands you want to represent and share your rates with them. Start by at least covering the cost of your photoshoot. The brands will understand and will WANT to make sure that the imagery representing their product is top notch and therefore shouldn't mind paying for such high quality work. Explain this to them. Doing this WELL in advance is very important and will ultimately set the stage for how your blog fares as a BUSINESS. 

2. Shoot for the next season. Remember that it will take time to get your images back. Then, it will take you time to select your favorites, write up your piece and organize your social media accounts with all the imagery. If you shoot bathing suits in August, you'll be disappointed when September rolls around and your finally posting them. I know, I know. Shooting that big heavy coat in Atlanta's 90 degree September weather is no fun. But your blog is a business. And planning well in advance is key to running any type of successful business. 

3. Run a "dress rehearsal". A couple of days prior to your photoshoot, lay out all of your outfits and put them in an order that seems most efficient. For example, if you are wearing the same pair of jeans with two outfits, put those outfits one after another. Put on the dress next, because you can quickly throw it on over your pants and then shimmy outta those pants... allowing you to change in the public places we so often find ourselves changing in ;) Now, actually try on all these outfits the way your would change into them at the shoot and decide if that order is in fact, most efficient. Swap around an outfit or too if need be! Assess whether certain underthings might be necessary to look your best or make changing even more efficient. Would a little tank top create a situation where you can swap tops in the street? Did you remember to pack the strapless bra for the little dress? Etc. During your dress rehearsal is the perfect time to "note" all the things you love most about each outfit. We photographers want to know these things so we can make sure to capture all the details you'll want to discuss in your blog piece. 

4. Hang each outfit onto one hanger and put those hangers in the appropriate order. Hang them in your car instead of wadding them up in a duffle bag; Wrinkles will not show that brand that you are representing them well. 

5. I cannot even begin to tell you the number of times a blogger has said to me, after the shoot, "Oh no, I forgot to change out my jewelry!" Buy a few little drawstring baggies and hang them on each of the hangers with the coordinating jewelry. If you want to change lipsticks for a look, put the lipstick in that baggie too. 

 

What are some thing you do to prepare for you blogging photoshoots? I'd love to hear them below!
