I have been wanting to do this for some time, so I may not be able to contain my excitement!!!
I have had the privileged of photographing several stylized shoots and am hoping to do many more. It will take some time, but I hope to sway all of you to LOVE stylized shoots! Really! That is my goal!!
A stylized or theme shoot is a portrait session that centers on a theme (horses, nautical), time period (1940’s, flappers) or season (Easter, Halloween). It can be a little overwhelming to try to come up with a stylized shoot idea and even harder to narrow down what you should prepare once you have your idea! Do not fear! I am here to help.
This week I am featuring a stylized Valentine’s shoot, since we are in the month of February. This would be a darling shoot for anniversary pictures, engagement photos, or even a maternity shoot. Below is an idea board, to help inspire and start us off on the journey of stylized shoots.
Tell me what you think! I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts. What stylized idea board would you like to see?

This shoot was amazing! And I am not just saying that because this is my brother and sister-in-law! They had everything planned out: matching outfits, theme, props, locations, the list goes on and on. It was a photographer’s dream and I didn’t have to tell them to do any of it!!! I love you, Ben and Drew!
Anyway! I wanted to share these fun pictures that they wanted. I have tons more to share, but thought I would start with this series. My brother had a handle-bar mustache for these pictures and it adds so much. Drew’s vintage inspired dress and boots are perfect for her damsel role. Ben’s hat (from Disney), vest and trench coat add so much to make this serious of photos so believable. Do you feel like you are watching a silent movie? I know I do! They asked to do these and I couldn’t have had more fun! Enjoy!
