This lovely family gathered at grandma's new lake home and had enough forethought to plan for some photos to be taken!  It was a surprise to grandma because the whole family was able to come, even the newest addition, a sweet little great-granddaughter from Oregon!

And the finished product: a wonderful memory of family displayed in the form of the JPEG Studio's Jenny Collection, a 9 piece arrangement of hand crafted mat and framed prints.

JennyWall-Customer pic It took some measuring and planning but the Jenny collection sure does look great here, doesn't it?  I think the most beautiful art you have is your family, I'd be happy to visit about your customized photo session? 

Just give me a call and we'll get started!

The year 2020 https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2020/6/the-year-2020 Hello there,

2020 has already been a very memorable year.  While we were preparing for #3 baby, the world was changing dramatically on a daily basis.  I can say I don’t think we could have had Claire at a better time.  In mid-February, we came home with our new babe and got tucked into our new routine. Then, within two weeks we were surprised daily with the announcements of shut-downs, stay-at-home orders, work from home and home schooling protocols.  I don’t think our experience is unique, we experienced some anxiety but also some joy throughout this season.

mygirlsmygirls

The quarantine time together was actually really wonderful for our little family of 5, but I know we were insulated from the true horror that others were facing in more metro areas and families directly affected by the pandemic.  That being said, I had planned on getting back to work about mid-April, back to taking senior portraits, back to summer sunset sessions with families and back to small business marketing for my customers. That was the plan or at least that’s what I thought.

Honestly, I was ok with a little more time for baby snuggles. When I did return to the office, it was clear: 2020 is going to look and feel different and may never be the same as before.  But a few things remained:

  • I’m here.
  • I’m open for business.
  • I’m still excited to do what I do

Even if it’s a little different than expected. 

So here’s your invitation and inspiration to take advantage of the time we have together.

  • Celebrate your Senior
  • Get that family photo scheduled
  • Plan and implement your business marketing strategy

Because…

  • You’re still here
  • You still have a future and it's a bright one
  • You can still celebrate the people and moments that matter most to you in this life

Thanks for reading!

Sending well wishes for health and happiness for the rest of 2020,

Jill Steward, The JPEG Studio

CustomWallArt-Jenny https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2018/10/customwallart-jenny Our discussion about this particular wall started over 4 years ago with her move to the country.  Jenny wanted a timeless quality but felt the big box store options were too impersonal.

If you know Jenny, you know she is stylish, practical and classic.  Our project discussions evolved into preparing an outdoor picnic scene featuring Kinsley, her daughter.  I wanted the look and feel of this canvas wall art to be familiar enough to go on anyone’s wall but with that sentimental and personal attachment you get when it’s about you, your family, and your history. 

 

We got that!

The windmill is a nod to Jenny growing up on the farm, Jenny mentioned how her mom would have loved a picnic under a grand tree and of course, her daughter, Kinsley, laying out the spread and ready to eat some fresh homegrown watermelon!  I wouldn’t say Jenny is outdoorsy but she sees and values the beauty in all God’s masterpieces and wanted that to be evident here.

TJS_1317crTJS_1317cr

This will be a family heirloom. I’m grateful to help Jenny see her vision through.  I hope it brings a smile to her face for years to come.

business to business https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2018/4/business-to-business I've been busy and excited to help small business lately! 

For me, it's important to understand the vision for the brand and the characteristics the business possesses when choosing how a company will be represented visually.  My creative approach is to think like you first. I ask lots of questions.  Then I’ll dissect and translate that to a brand or logo that will convey just what you want the world to know with impact. Print & Online

Problem,solved https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2018/2/problem-solved 18 Summers Photography solves a problem for all parents…

 

The Who:

Your treasures, your little loves or (not so little) loves anymore and of course Jill from the JPEG Studio behind the camera!

The What:

My signature product – The 18 Summers Wall Collage!  Answering the question of what to do with your images – now you have a plan! What a relief!

The Where:

After we meet before the session – we’ll have picked the ideal place together. Whether it’s a creek bed with cute little coke bottles or a Balloon Pop Birthday Party in the Studio – I love to create – Let’s get planning!

The When:

Summers are great times for this session – kids are out of school, focused on being a kid again with a more laid back schedule we can really get creative and personal.

But Fall is so beautiful too, I can see playing in the leaves, bonfires, s’mores, pumpkin patches and jackets (I love jacket weather!)

Winter can be beautiful too – Let’s look at the weather forecast and plan a snowball fight! Or it’s a great season to do a session in Studio.

Spring – Everyone loves spring, vibrant colors, spirits reawakened

Ok ANYTIME is a great time but don’t let another year go by

The Why:

Because we only have 18 summers – gotta make ‘em count!

stopthistrain https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2016/5/stopthistrain Hearing how this season (of life) is so consumed with ball practices, camps, end of school stuff... I hear the lyrics to this song:  
Stop this train
I wanna get off and go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in
I know I can't
But, honestly, won't someone stop this train?

Don't know how else to say it,
Don't want to see my parents go
One generation's length away
From fighting life out on my own

Mom and Sylvia

Stop this train
I wanna get off and go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in
I know I can't
but, honestly, won't someone stop this train?

Sylvia nose wrinkle


So scared of getting older
I'm only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said, "Help me understand."
He said, "Turn 68,
you'll renegotiate
Don't stop this train
Don't for a minute change the place you're in
Don't think I couldn't ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly, we'll never stop this train."

Once in a while when it's good
It'll feel like it should
And they're all still around
And you're still safe and sound
And you don't miss a thing
'Til you cry when you're driving away in the dark.

WP_6986-edWP_6986-ed
Singing, "Stop this train" Thanks John Mayer

Now that baby is finally here you want photos!  002002 Let me walk you through some options, tips and reasons why to choose the JPEG Studio!

  1. Have a plan on how you want to display your images.  The possibilities are a bit overwhelming but some of the most popular ways to display images of your new baby are: 
    1. Above the Crib Wall Portraits Above the Crib DisplayAbove the Crib DisplaySweet little Willa!
    2. “Collection Wall” somewhere in your home Collage WallCollage WallCollage Wall
    3. A display for your office and then Photos for your Wall!Photos for your Wall!
    4. Albums are great because in the 1st year they change so much and you want to savor each stage, it’s perfect to take images we have taken all year long and compose a 1st year Album! View a Sample Album - Click here.  Which brings me to point #2…
  2. STAGES – Don't book your appointments based on age...look for major milestones.  
    1. For the newborn stage it really is important to try to get into the studio within the first 3 weeks, then we can get that perfect “sleep anywhere, anyway” photo. Click here to view some great newborn ideas.   Sweet Sleepy BabySweet Sleepy Baby After that, I advise my mamas to book appointments based on the following milestones:
    2. Expressions (which can range from 3-5 months) It’s so heart stopping when your baby smiles at you and begins to let their personality show. ABF_1391bwslide101Expressions - Garrett Lockridge
    3. Sitting up (7-9 months) This is the perfect time to do that family photo for a couple reasons.  Lots of new mamas make the mistake of booking family photos right after the baby arrives, waiting a bit gives mom time to look her best too! and Baby makes 3!and Baby makes 3!  Plus at this stage, your baby really gives you lots of personality instead of just sweetly sleeping the session away! Willa Ryan
    4. Walking (10 months to 1 year) Lots of parents love to add in a Birthday Scene and Cake Smash photo shoot to this session

 

Finally, just remember to stop, let the laundry go and enjoy, it really does go so fast.

J.R. Bird passed away mid-February 2016 at his home surrounded by his family. I'm so glad that we made this lovely portrait, just one year prior. 

With heartfelt sympathy, Jill Steward at the JPEG Studio.

Murphy's law...of course the one shot of this little rascal that they really wanted was with the weed chin-high...but with a little editing magic in photoshop...good as new!  Basic Photoshop editing is included in all prints ordered at the JPEG Studio but specialized edits like this one would warrant an extra fee.

little quotes for little one's photo sessions https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2014/1/little-quotes-for-little-ones-photo-sessions I can't decide which little quote is best for my Children's Photo Session page:

Second to the right,' said Peter, 'and then straight on till morning.”  or

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ― C.S. Lewis

What do you think?

What to wear to family photo sessions https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2014/1/what-to-wear-to-family-photo-sessions Just watched a webinar from another photographer and she made a great point...All those photos of families in jeans and white shirts.  By default, our eyes look for contrast so those photos we are drawn right to people's mid-sections...really not what we want -right?  When people ask me what they should wear, I fumble with what to say.  If I'm like most women, I have a closet full of clothes but 'nothing to wear' but that being said, I feel that you should pick something you feel beautiful and comfortable in.  I'm recommending that you start with what Mom is going to wear, once that's decided then the color palette is then set and you can fill in the other family members from there.  Let's be honest, Dad doesn't mind and the kids will wear what you put on them (unless they are teens...I haven't gotten to that stage yet in my family) will update post at a later date on that note.  I like when families compliment each other's outfits but not completely match...but that's just me.

Barn https://www.thejpegstudio.com/blog/2014/1/barn Near Warrensburg, Missouri on my Grandma's FarmHer dad, Pa, painted everything red. This was a shot before the new red paint job was completed.

The view from my Grandma's make-up table on her farm near Warrensburg, Missouri.  Love old Barn photos.  This was before the new paint job was done by my cousin a few years back.  Her dad and my great grandpa "Pa", was said to paint everything red.  Now when you crest the last hill toward her home on the gravel road that barn is a bright red shade, and I like to think Pa is happy.
