I used Lange Photography for my daughters’ one year pictures. Jamie was very easy to work with, very patient and flexible. She had great ideas and did very unique effects to the pictures. I was very satisfied and felt I received priceless photos of this special event!
Jamie photographed my 2 very busy girls. She was very patient and enthusiatic with them. While neither child wanted to stay put (being 1 yr. and 3 years old) Jamie was able to get the most adorable and precious pictures of both girls, even one of them together. Jamie took my absolute favorite pictures I’ve even had taken of either child. Thank you, Jamie.
If you are looking for fun, professional lifetime memories Lange Photography is who to call! We had such a blast doing our engagement photos, it literally took us days to decide which to buy they were all so great!! I would highly recommend Jamie as she is qualified, reasonable, and very creative!
Jamie recently did a maternity photo shoot for me and a newborn shoot once my son was born. It was such a special time in my life and she captured it perfectly. The pictures turned out beautiful! She had great ideas for his shoot and was open to any ideas that I had. She was wonderful and I highly recommend her.
We had Jamie take Aaron’s senior pictures. Her service was very
professional and prompt. Any questions we had were answered quickly. The
pictures turned out great! Our biggest problem was in narrowing down the
choices to just a few. After we had made our choices and sent the order
it didn’t take long and we had the prints. We were very happy with the
pictures and the service we received. I will definitely use Lange
Jamie has a very warm personality that puts everyone at ease. She made our session relaxed and fun!
She came highly recommended so we were very excited for her to take our son’s 3 month pictures.
Her helpful suggestions about what to wear and what props to bring for my son’s portraits made me feel more prepared for our session.
We were very satisfied with our experience. Our three month old son needed a few breaks during the session and Jamie was very patient. She took so many great pictures we had a difficult time choosing which ones to order!
I highly recommend Jamie to anyone looking for a creative, patient children’s photographer.
My session at Lange Photography was very fun. We recently had family pictures taken and with a family of seven it can be a daunting task. Jamie has kids of her own and was very good with everyone from posing to interaction to keeping their attention. I was very excited to get our pictures taken because it had been quite awhile since our last family pictures. I recently saw the proofs and was very pleased. She did a great job, we will go back and I will definitely recommend Lange Photography to anyone!
Jamie Lange Photography has been a wonderful blessing to me and my family! We first used her services for my daughter’s senior pictures and absolutely loved both the experience and the finished pictures! Because of the experience, I contacted her about another daughter’s wedding. Again, more than what we would have expected. She met with us several times, willing to communicate via e-mail, phone calls and personal visits. The finished results were absolutely beautiful and a lifetime of memories for us to cherish. She also took my granddaughter’s 1st birthday pictures along with family photos. Again, a very enjoyable experience. She presented us with so many options and we have beautiful and fun pictures to enjoy. I highly recommend Jamie for any photo needs. She is a loving and caring person who is extremely pleasant and a joy to work with.
I was so impressed with Jamie Lange Photography. My 18 month old is very shy and fussy and she still got some great shots. She is wonderful with children and really knows how to put them at ease and get great shots! We took time out of family vacation to have the kids’ pictures done and it was well worth it. I will definitely have portraits done by Jamie Lange Photography next time we are visiting from California!
Photography Tips for Girl and Guy Seniors
Tips for Everyone
First of all avoid stripes and plaid! Solids photograph much better! Avoid clothing with large, bold brand names or that has wording on it except for your own school logo. No need to look like your advertising for a clothing brand. Also bring a variety of color and style; all blue tank tops can get boring. Remember, it is best to do one or two outfits that mom will like, and then we can do the stuff YOU like. That being said I want you to be You and want you to bring and wear what makes you feel comfortable.
Some shots are full length and others are close up. Plan outfits from head to toe, in other words don’t forget nice shoes if you are wearing a nice outfit.
Most of the time you will have to change in the car or layer so you can add or drop a piece for a different look.
Make sure your clothing flatters you.
If you think you have large arms, be careful of sleeveless styles, they can make your arms look fuller.
Darker colors and long sleeves always photograph the best.
Clothes for black and white
Black and white photographs look best with black clothing. The contrast between the skin and black is what makes them so dramatic. So bring some black clothes.
Avoid changing your hairstyle or cutting or bleaching your hair right before your session. Let it be natural. Quick easy hairstyle changes during your session are OK. Bring your hair care tools and products with you if need be. Although the photographer tries to help with hair, it is hard to know what your hair “is supposed to look like”. So make sure you like the look or let the photographer know your preferences.
Bring Them! Bring props that help define who you are. Some popular choices are: sports equipment, sports uniforms, music instruments, four wheelers, prom dresses, letter jacket, football jersey, car , pet, cowboy hat, boyfriend/girlfriend…
Or anything else that you want to include in your portrait to make it more unique and special!
I will retouch blemishes, tattoos that you don’t want shown, scars, etc. when asked. The proofs you receive will not be retouched so look at them closely so you can let me know of any changes you want done to your prints.
Let’s face it; we are at the mercy of Mother Nature. If it rains, we simply have to reschedule. Don’t worry about clouds, but rain is a problem. Please call me, if I haven’t called you first, if the weather is questionable.
Most glasses glare! Some prescriptions more than others. Your best bet is to not wear them in the photo or get a “loaner” set of frames from your optometrist that look similar to yours.
Special Concerns For Girls
Best tip here, keep it simple. We want the attention on YOU, not the big shiny jewelry.
Special Considerations for Guys
Please make sure you are clean shaven. Got a goatee that mom hates, do your casual shots first and bring a razor to shave it off for mom’s shots. Everyone is happy that way.
~ Sometimes the cakes are frozen in the case at the store. It is best to buy your birthday cake a day ahead of time, and store it in your refrigerator. Then, the morning of your cake smashing session – please leave your cake out on the counter so it can come to room temperature. This allows the icing to get nice and soft and mushy…making it much easier for your 1 year old to make a mess of the cake!
~ What to wear?? A simple diaper cover looks great. Tutu’s on little girls are adorable! I have a pink one or you can bring your own. Cute t-shirts / Birthday t-shirts look great. A diaper and birthday bib or birthday hat is adorable too.
~ Feel free to bring extras like balloons, etc.
~ A couple more things for the session…please bring extra wipes and an extra outfit to wear home. I have a bath tub for you to use if needed but you might consider bringing some baby shampoo/wash.
