Christmas photos

This month I took photos for 60 local preschoolers to give their parents as Christmas gifts. I went with red accent pieces to leave in color and made the kids black and white. It made for some striking photos. I was lucky to be able to take pictures of such adorable kids. They are just so precious at this age. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too!

For those preschool parents who are jumping on my blog, please call or email if you'd like additional copies of your childs photo. Additional copies are available at low cost.

Anyways, here are some of my favorite preschool Christmas pictures (all posted with permission of the parents).

Welcome to Photography by Annette

Photography has long been a passion of mine and I've decided to take it to the next step - capturing moments in the lives of others. Please see my specials at the top of the page and enjoy some of the photos that I have to share.

My photography journey began in 2001, when I started scrapbooking. My photos were the first thing that I needed to improve and I began doing so. With a combination of good photos, journaling and page design, I quickly started making a name for myself in the scrapbook world. To date I have had over 75 pages published in scrapbook magazines and idea books and have designed for manufacturers and retailers. Scrapbooking continues to be a love of mine.

In 2009 I got serious about photography and purchased myself some professional equipment. I took photography courses and became proficient at editing photos. I now pride myself on capturing beautiful and visually pleasing photographs. I began photographing others in 2010 and have decided to make a living doing what I love. And so began Photography by Annette.
