#GivingTuesday is a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity. I have been so blessed this year in my business but I know that life can be so hard and it has been an incredibly difficult season of life for many over these past two years. This year, I would like to gift someone a portrait session that documents their family for a lifetime.

I am asking for nominations from my amazing clients. You can nominate a friend, family, co-worker, neighbor, etc. Anyone that you think could really use some beautiful portraits to lift their spirits this holiday season. It could be a single parent who works really hard to support their family. Perhaps you know a family who is coming out of a really difficult season of life. Maybe even someone with an illness or just someone that YOU think is deserving of a portrait session.

To nominate someone, please send and answer the following questions:


One deserving family will receive a FREE 30-minute Christmas portrait session with (2) digital images (a $290 value). Winner must be able to travel to my studio in Surprise, AZ on Saturday, December 11th. Session will include: 

  • 30-minute studio portrait session
  • choice of 2 holiday backdrops (Red Truck or Cozy Room)
  • 2 high-res digital images
  • 30-minute viewing appointment immediately after session

Submissions will be taken all day today (Tuesday, November 30th). The winner will be selected and announced by email and on my Facebook page on December 1st!


Fine Print

  • Each person is only allowed to nominate one person/family. 
  • Multiple nominations of the same person/family do not help their chances.
  • Session is for immediate family only. Event photography, extended families, newborn, and large groups are excluded from this giveaway.
  • All entries must be received by Tuesday, November 30th at midnight. Winner will be announced on Wednesday, December 1st.

Premium Wood Window Folio Collection Box https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2021/8/premium-wood-window-folio-collection-box

I am so excited to announce the addition of this gorgeous Premium Wood Window Folio Collection Box to my studio offerings. It's made from the finest American Walnut wood and has a luxurious soft touch interior. The box's unique patented design allows you to showcase your favourite image in the lid of the box. It is easily interchangeable too, making it a great display piece for your home. It also has a special storage place for your included USB drive so that your digital files don't get lost. 
 

What's a Folio Box?

A Folio Box is traditionally a collection of Matted prints stored in a handcrafted box. It is a great modern alternative to the classic Photo Album. 

What is so great about a Folio Box? 

What my clients love about Folio Boxes is that they are so versatile. Our Folio Boxes contain 30, 15, or 5 matted prints. Here are some of my client's favorite uses for their matted prints and boxes:

  • These portraits can be kept in your box for you to look through like a modern album. Plus you can place the box upright to display your favorite image as a beautiful tabletop frame.
  • You can you some of them to gift to grandparents, family or friends. 
  • My FAVORITE use for the images is to create a gorgeous gallery wall! You can frame as few or as many of your prints as you like to make a quick and simple gallery wall with huge impact. 

Would you like more information on our Premium Wood Window Folio Boxes? Contact us today for a free consultation!

Back to School 2020 https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2020/9/back-to-school-2020-covid-19 Back to school 2020 has been a little different this year. Well, it's been a lot different. The uncertainty that has plagued all things 2020 has affected plans for the 2020-2021 school year. There have been so many debates about what the best and safest option for our kids and teachers. This school year is unprecedented with the the different options for how our children will learn. Most of these options have been around for years, but this year there is a new light being shown on all the different options for going back to school.

  • Remote Learning (or Distance Learning)
  • In-Person Learning (or On-Campus Learning)
  • Hybrid Schedule (or Flex-Learning)
  • Homeschooling
  • Virtual Learning (stand-alone Virtual Schools like K12 or iSchool)
  • Micro-schools (small neighborhood schools like Prenda)

Every family is different, and what is right for each family can be different too. Adriane, with Raising Kids with Purpose, basically takes the words right out of my mouth and explains the complexities so well in her blog post on sending kids back to school

Adriane writes:

"Do What Will Work Best for You and Your Child

This is where I encourage parents with the… “You know your child best.” 

The fact of the matter is that, right now, there is no perfect answer. There probably won’t ever be. 

You must consider your child’s personality, temperament, skill level, etc. You must also consider your personality, interest level, and availability! This is a situation where it may actually be helpful to write down your options, consider the advantages and disadvantages of each, and proceed with confidence knowing there is no perfect answer. 

Try to find a good enough answer based on your family’s circumstances."

This year, I wanted to do something a little special for back to school photos. I wanted to create classic school portraits that would also show that it's okay to choose any type of learning that is right for your child and your family.

 

These little cuties may not be going back to school but they still wanted to be part of the fun!

 

This year is different for parents and teachers too so I had to do some fun ones showing that too! (Cameo by yours truly😆 )

I had so much fun making my vision for Back to School Photos come to life! This year is different, but there is no reason we can't still celebrate it and make memories!!

 

I got my awesome chalk graphics from Squijoo and Freepik! Check them out!

Studio Safety Guidelines - Outdoor Sessions https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2020/5/studio-safety-guidelines-outdoor-sessions These are unprecedented times that we are living in right now and as such I feel it is important to give a little update on how Beth DeMund Photography is working to ensure the health and safety of our clients. I would like to reassure you that I am taking all precautions advised by the WHO and CDC, and will apply them to all my portrait sessions. 

Until further notice, all portrait sessions will be held outdoors in the fresh air to minimize any contact. I will be shooting all outdoor sessions with a long lens to ensure that I am a safe 6' distance from my clients as recommended by the CDC. I will also be avoiding any personal contact with my clients including hugs, hand-shakes, high fives, adjusting hair or clothes, and hands on assistance with posing. I will arrive at each session with wet wipes and hand-sanitizer which will be used throughout the session. I will also have a mask with me that I can wear if that would make you feel more comfortable. 

As always, my sessions have a strict no-sick policy. Clients are required to disclose and reschedule their session if any member of their family has any symptoms of an illness such as fever, cough, runny nose or vomitting in the last 48 hours. In the same way, sessions will also be rescheduled if the photographer has experienced any symptoms as well. There is no fee to reschedule. 

 

Thank you! xoxo Beth

Stephanie & Will's Wedding | St. Augustine FL Destination Wedding Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2019/4/stephanie-wills-wedding-st-augustine-fl-destination-wedding-photographer I am so excited to share these photos from Stephanie & Will's amazing wedding last weekend. I met Stephanie when I moved to Florida for my senior year of high school and her family instantly became part of our family. Stephanie and her sister Jessica were Jr. Bridesmaids/Flower girls in my wedding even though they were in high school. My favorite moment was when Stephanie dumped out her basket of flowers at the end of the aisle like any toddler flower girl would have done. I love Stephanie and her entire family and was so honored to photograph her wedding and Jessica's wedding last year! At Jessica's wedding was where I met Will and quickly approved of him. He fits perfectly into their family. 

The wedding day was perfect! They got married at a lake outside a gorgeous barn. In classic Florida form, we had several quick rain showers but they all came at the perfect times AND helped keep the temperatures down. When the time came to head to the beach for photos we were worried about the weather but decided to risk it anyway. The beach could not have been any more perfect (as you can see in the epic beach photos)! We arrived in this pocket of perfect weather. There was no rain, no wind, and the most beautiful cloudy sky for sunset. The rain cleared all the tourists away so we had the beach to ourselves and quite honestly, we did not want to leave.  

Stephanie and Will have such an amazing relationship and I can't wait to see where their adventures take them. Congratulations Stephanie & Will!!! 

HUGE shoutout to all the amazing vendors who made their wedding amazing.

Baby Julianna's Rainbow & Unicorn Newborn Session | Surprise, Arizona Newborn Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2018/9/baby-juliannas-rainbow-unicorn-newborn-session-surprise-arizona-newborn-photographer For quite some time now, I have had a vision to create a beautiful and magical portrait session for a rainbow baby. The term is growing in popularity but in case you don't know, a rainbow baby is defined as "is a baby born after a miscarriage, stillborn, or neonatal death," Jennifer Kulp-Makarov, M.D., FACOG in a special article on Parents.com. (It is a GREAT read, and I would definitely encourage everyone to read it!) The term rainbow baby symbolizes the hope that a baby brings after experiencing a tragic loss.

I was fortunate enough to get connected with a beautiful momma-to-be who was pregnant with her 3rd baby. She has two beautiful little boys and felt that one more would complete their family. She did become pregnant but after 12 weeks she lost her little angel. After a difficult fall season, they found out they were pregnant again and on New Years Eve no less! This family of four could not have been more excited to welcome a baby girl to their family! 

 

The pain you have been feeling can't compare to the joy that is coming.

Romans 8:18

Preparing for your Engagement Photography Session | Phoenix, AZ Engagement Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2018/6/engagement-session-prep-phoenix-az-engagement-photographer

Engagement Sessions are some of the most fun photo sessions. For many couples this is the first time that they have had a professional photography session and I find that there are common questions that my brides and grooms ask about preparing for the engagement session. I hope these tips will help you prepare for your engagement photos!

 

Why should we have our engagement photos done?

  • My favorite reason to have engagement photos is that it is our opportunity to really get to know one another before your big day. It will help you get to know me and what to expect from me on the big day and I love learning more about you. This helps me customize your wedding day photography even more. 
  • You can also use engagement photos for all sorts of things! You can submit a photo to your local paper for an engagement announcement; send out some adorable save-the-dates; use them for bridal shower or wedding day decor, or give framed prints as gifts to your families. 

 

What should we wear for our engagement session?

  • Avoid being too matchy-matchy. Gone are the days of both couples wearing white t-shirts and jeans. You’ll want what you wear to complement each other, not copy!
  • Try to stick with more neutral tones (white, off-white, blush, grays, etc). If you love color try using just a pop of color to tie both of your outfits together.
  • For women, avoid shirts that are baggy or super-loose. Sometimes the camera can exaggerate the looseness in the clothing, which can cause one to appear more round than they really are.
  • Feel free to bring an outfit change (one casual look, one dressy look). It’s always good to switch things up a bit and if we change locations, it will essentially be like you had two photoshoots.
  • Solid colored clothing items are great, and if you want to bring in a pattern, have only one person wearing the pattern.
  • Wear what you feel comfortable in. If you’re not comfortable in what you’re wearing, it often shows in the images.
  • Heels photograph really well and make women’s posture and legs look amazing. If you do choose to wear heels, also bring flip-flops or other shoes that you can be more comfortable in while walking in-between shots.
  • Try on everything a few days before the shoot. You’ll want to make sure your clothes fit correctly and you don’t have distractions from panty lines, bra straps, poor fitting clothing, or wrinkles!

Still need a little inspiration for your outfit? Check out my Engagement Session Outfit Board! I also have gowns available for rent for your session if you want an elegant look!

 

Should I get my makeup professionally done?

There are many benefits to getting your makeup done professionally:

  • Makeup looks different on-camera than in-person, and a professional makeup artist will know how much more makeup you’ll need to show well on camera and make you look your best!
  • Your skin will look better in-camera (I highly recommend that you use a makeup artist who airbrushes on their makeup), and you’ll be amazed how awesome your skin looks!
  • It’s a great trial run for your wedding day! You can find out what works and what doesn’t, and make adjustments for your wedding day.

 

Should we bring props?

This is completely up to you! If there are certain items that reflect something about you guys or your story that you would like to incorporate into photos, you can definitely bring them (hats, fun shoes, a pet, sports paraphernalia, a car, bicycles, etc.)! However, props are not necessary to make amazing images and we definitely don't want the session to become all about the props and less about you two together so I do tend to limit the use of props during sessions.

 

Is there anything else we should bring?

Bring finishing powder to help eliminate any shine on the skin, lipstick, and hairspray for any flyaway hairs. Other than that you’re good to go! Be ready to have some fun!

Jessica & Jonathan's Wedding | Central FL Destination Wedding Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2018/4/jessica-jonathans-wedding-central-fl-destination-wedding-photographer Words simply cannot describe how I feel about this wedding. Jessica and her family are basically like a second family to me. I've always considered her like the sister that I never had and I could not be happier for her and her future with Jonathan. When Jessica asked me to take engagement photos for her I was obviously honored, but like any good "big sister" I was skeptical about this new guy. BUT after about 2 minutes with him I was sold. Their love for one another is so true and so pure that there is no doubt that they were meant to be together. I am so glad that I was able to make the trip from Arizona back to my old stomping grounds in Central Florida to be their wedding photographer. Their wedding day was as perfect as could be and two people could not be more deserving.

Jessica & Jonathan, I wish you the absolute very best and I know that God is going to bless you with the most amazing life together. I love you both dearly. <3

Normally, I'd apologize for the ridiculous amount of photos in a blog post but I could not leave any of these photos out. #sorrynotsorry 

 

A HUGE shoutout to all the amazing vendors who made their fairytale wedding a reality.

Jessica & Jon Engaged! | Engagement Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2017/3/jessica-jon-engaged-engagement-photographer Jessica has always been like a sister to me so I was beyond excited when she asked me to take her engagement photos! I was a little skeptical of this Jon guy but I have to say, he won me over instantly.  His love for her (and hers for him) is just so obvious.  They were definitely a match made in heaven.  I could not be happier that my "little sister" has found such an amazing man to spend the rest of her life with.  Congratulations Jessica & Jon!!

Welcoming Prince George | Newborn Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2017/2/welcoming-prince-george-phoenix-az-newborn-photographer Every newborn that I get the pleasure of photographing is special but this little guy was even more so.  I was lucky enough to photograph these two parents at their fairytale wedding and I was overjoyed to be able to photograph them again as they became a family of three!  Welcome to the world Prince George!

Presley turns 2! | Lake Louisa State Park, Clermont, FL Family Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2017/1/presley-turns-2-lake-louisa-state-park-clermont-fl-family-photographer It has been so fun watching Presley grow these past two years! Lake Louisa State Park is such a beautiful location and there usually aren't a lot of people there so we thought it would make a great spot for Presley's two year photos. SURPRISE there was a big group of kids with Florida Orienteering literally running around everywhere!  Presley was loving it but like most (or dare I say ALL) two year olds, he was not about to sit still especially since there were planes and boats all around! Despite the distractions, I was able to capture some great shots of this cutie and his mom and dad.  Plus I got my exercise in for the day chasing him around, win win!

Ximena & Ben are Getting Married! | Rollins College, Orlando, FL Engagement Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2017/1/ximena-ben-are-getting-married-rollins-college-orlando-fl-engagement-photographer Ximena and Ben met at a Spanish meet-up in Ohio in what can only be described as one of those rare twists of fate! Thanks to Xime's brother and Ben's last minute change of plans the pair met and slowly began their love story.  Although miles apart their love continued to blossom and grow into the thing of beauty it is today.

Ben got down on one knee at the place where their relationship officially started (unbeknownst to Xime at first ☺️) in beautiful St Augustine.  Xime was in shock and nearly forgot to actually say yes! Of course she eventually did say yes and the rest is history.

We had a great time photographing their engagement session at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and cannot wait for their wedding in October! 

Congratulations Xime and Ben!

Awaiting Baby Grayson | Lake Louisa State Park, Clermont, FL Maternity Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2017/1/awaiting-baby-grayson-lake-louisa-state-park-clermont-fl-maternity-photographer I photographed Analise & Tom's wedding just last year and was beyond excited when they asked me to be a part of the next big step in their lives.  This little man is already so loved, especially by his big fur sister Peach!  I could not have asked for a more beautiful day or beautiful mama.  As cliche as it sounds, she absolutely glowed. I can't wait for little Grayson's arrival, he's sure to be a cutie!

Happy Fall! Victoria's 6 Months Old | Winter Garden Family Portrait Photography https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/10/happy-fall-victorias-6-month-s-old-winter-garden-family-portrait-photography It was so fun getting to see little (well not so little anymore!) Victoria again! I can't believe it's been 6 months since her newborn session with Beth DeMund Photography.  She has grown into such a little sweetheart.  We had an adorable fall themed photoshoot with her, complete with the most adorable bumblebee and lion costumes! Her daddies even joined in on the costume fun and we did an awesome Wizard of Oz themed family photo.  I just love this sweet family and can't wait for our next photoshoot.

Andrea & Matt are Engaged! | Rollins College, Orlando, FL Engagement Photography https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/10/andrea-matt-are-engaged-rollins-college-orlando-fl-engagement-photography Andrea & Matt met while working at Disney World!  After some time working together as friends, their very own fairytale romance began to grow. Now at last they are planning their happily ever after at the Knowles Memorial Chapel at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.

We decided to meet for their engagement photos at Rollins College because the campus there is just too beautiful for words!  The architecture, the landscaping, the lake view, and then the sunset... AHHHHH-mazing!  With Hurricane Matthew (not to be confused with future groom Matt!!) slowly moving toward us, we were a little worried about the weather but we were blessed with a gorgeous evening.  We had a blast and I have to say that I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

I cannot wait for their wedding in the Spring! We are going to have so much fun and make some gorgeous photos.  Welcome to the Beth DeMund Photography family Andrea & Matt!

Welcoming Baby Victoria | Winter Garden, FL Newborn Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/5/welcoming-baby-victoria From the first moment that I spoke with James on the phone I knew we were going to have some amazing photo sessions!  We patiently waited, what seemed like an eternity, for perfect little Baby Victoria to arrive and when she did I could not wait to finally meet her and of course her dads, James & Adam!  

Victoria was so sweet and was just a joy to photograph.  She is surrounded by love and she knows it!  I can't wait to continue to capture beautiful memories for this beautiful little girl's first year!!!

DeMund Family | Destination Arizona Family Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/4/demund-family-destination-arizona-family-photographer I am blessed to have married into a beautiful big family.  Sadly we do not live very close together so we only get to see them once or twice a year but we definitely make the most of the time we do spend together.  This time we took the time to take some beautiful family photos for my brother-in-law and his beautiful wife and kiddos.  I absolutely love these people and they were a joy to photograph, even with the occasional toddler melt down. :-P

Melissa & Madeline's Mommy & Me | Showcase of Citrus - Clermont, FL Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/3/melissa-and-madelines-mommy-me While Daddy was at work, his two beautiful girls were able to come out for an adorable little photoshoot in the middle of the orange groves at the Showcase of Citrus.  I've known Melissa since the very early days of my photography career so it was awesome getting to spend some time with her again!  Little Madeline is seriously too cute for words.  Melissa and Madeline have a lot of fun together, and that fun just shined through their photos.  Ok Daddy, be prepared to have your heart stolen all over again!

If you've never been to the Showcase of Citrus in Clermont, then do yourself a favor and go! Take your family out for a day of fun for FREE! They have a little petting zoo, monster truck tours through the estate, pick your own citrus, and to die for fresh orange slush.  You pay for any citrus and anything else you might want to buy in their adorable little store but the fun is free.  I highly recommend it for kids of all ages!

Quinn Family | Baldwin Park Family Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/2/quinn-family-baldwin-park-family-photographer Ok so this family has an extra special place in my heart.  Since high school, I have considered this mommy to be my little sister.  I still can't believe she is so grown up with two handsome little boys!  The morning of the session was a rare cold Florida day but we were able to capture some sweet moments between the three of them before heading to grab some breakfast and hot chocolate!  They were troopers and earned that steaming cup of hot cocoa!

The Adorable Turner Girls | Windermere Family Portrait Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2016/1/the-adorable-turner-girls This week I was so excited to meet up with and take some adorable photos of some of my favorite girls!  I went to high school with this gorgeous mom and we were lucky enough to have kids around the same age so we've had several playdates for us, I mean them.  Little Vivi turns 3 next month (how did that happen so fast?!) and is so full of light and creativity.  I loved following her around and seeing what she came up with next.  Little Ellie is 7 months old and is one of the happiest babies I've met.  Her laugh is just the silliest and it is absolutely impossible to not laugh along with.  

I had this concept that I wanted to bring this old family heirloom chair outside for some ultra feminine photos and these girls let me try it out on them.  They were the perfect subjects and I am beyond happy with how the photos turned out.  Enjoy!

He is such a sweet little boy and I just adored taking these photos. Mom & Dad work at Disney so we had a little fun playing with a popular Disney movie that he was named after, Toy Story! So we stepped into Andy's room!

Ryan & Nicole's Wedding | New Hampshire Destination Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2014/7/ryan-nicoles-wedding-new-hampshire-destination-photographer Per Sempre Insieme - Forever Together

My very own cousin got married this past weekend and I was fortunate enough to be his photographer! Ryan and I grew up together and he is like a brother to me so I was so excited to be a part of his wedding and welcome his beautiful new bride Nicole into our family.  

Nicole and Ryan first met at college in Colorado while Nicole was doing a study abroad. Last year, they went back to Nicole's home country of Italy and Ryan did his own studying abroad! How cool is that!

Here are a few of my favorites from their special day.

Ben is 10 Months Old! | Orlando Baby Photographer https://www.bethdemundphotography.com/blog/2014/2/ben-is-10-months-old-orlando-baby-portrait-photographer My baby boy is 10 months old!  

I can't even believe it!  He is looking more and more like a little boy instead of my baby. 😢  I keep telling him to stop growing up but he doesn't listen.  Stubborn little man!  Here are a few images from our monthly photo shoot.  I love this little newsie hat on him.  Part of me can't wait to put all the images together when he turns 1, while the other part is dreading it since it will mean he is way too grown up!!  Anyone know how to make time slow down?
